Manny the Pacman beats the champion from Puerto Rico, Miguel Cotto. It was a 12th round Technical Knockout as Cotto’s corner throw out a towel.
History is made as the pacman now won 7 different titles.
I must say this one is really funny. I enjoy watching those touchdown antics from way back. Like the team dancing, salutes, to other more weird stuff like eating a chocolate bar at the end zone.. and one guy calling his wife at the endzone. I think he was asked to stop doing that after each touchdown as it was labeled as taunting. But this scene were a football player tried to “bribe”a linesman using a $1 bill was indeed entertaining.. for me!

Today I was asked by one of my colleagues how to setup his email in the office. He has already setup his email at home and in his blackberry, but everytime he opens the mails in the office, he cannot get a copy at home.
Why? The emails that are opened in the office are deleted from the server. Leaving a copy in the server is very important if you wish to access your POP3 account in more than one location. Here is the steps.
1.) Open Microsoft Outlook
2.) Click Tools from the top menu, then Account Settings.
3.) Double click on the account you want to edit.
4.) click the More Settings button
5.) Go to the Advanced tab
6.) Check “Leave a copy of messages in the server”
That should be it. This is for Microsoft Outlook 2007. For other versions it should be slightly different but, the important part is to get to “More Settings” and then the Advanced tab.
I hope it helps.
Oh! I have just read in the news today. President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has the option to run as vice president this coming May 10 elections. This is what her legal experts are saying, and she does not need to resign from her current position as President. Maybe she can, because it is just the presidency that she cannot ‘run’ for, as it will be a violation of the Philippine constitution.
But her running for Vice Presidency is absolute nonsense in my opinion. Isn’t something close to “self-demotion”? You have been seated at the highest political post in the country, and after your term ends, you will run for “2nd best”?
I don’t think she will do that though. And if she does, will she win? Will you vote?
Japanese guy trying to demo a multitouch screen with Windows 7. Unfortunately for him the touchscreen application apparently was not turned on? Notice the tech person trying to fix it. lol
Flashvars are fun to work with. I was able to customize my own skin. I even created a player that feeds from xml to play a playlist and a one by one player. The good thing about these players is that they are not restricted to .flv file format, but it can also mp4 and m4v.
