If Microsoft designed the iPod

My first video blog using youtube.com and wanted to test it using a video that contains humor. Hah!I still think it's hilarious not to mention realistic.

I think I will be adding CSS and Photoshop tutorials in the future. I just hope Youtube.com will be as reliable as Google in terms of service or my video blogs will go awry if Youtube goes down the tube :)


A Useful Plug-in and Web Developer Resources

I'm using Mozilla Firefox because of it's extensibility. With plug-ins and/or extensions you have got more than a browser.

Recently I tried using StumbleUpon extension for Firefox and signed up for a free account while making choices on what subjects I want. I got really excited when I tried using it on the subject of Arts. It was really awesome! The quality of websites that it lets you browse are really good. In fact, I had to stop myself browsing the sites it featured because I might spend the whole day using the extension!

The next day I used it for browsing the subject of Web Development so I can use the plugin for searching ways to help me at work. And help it did. So many websites out there that can help me in my work and StumbleUpon had done the dirty work (ok, the contributors did!)

StumbleUpon helps you discover great websites.With a single click, you can find and share cool sites matched to your interests. Download it now!

More on web development, I believe I have ranted…

Worry free living

As I attended the Sunday service at Alabang New Life Ministry last sunday, We were in for a big surprise (and miracle, if I may say so). The guest speaker/pastor was Ray-An Fuentes, the famous singer way back in the 1980's. He has been spreading God's word in Canada and other countries for 18 years.

How is this topic related to design? Well all aspects of your life will improve when you hear him speak, not just your design sense,guaranteed

His topic was "Keys for a worry free living". He quoted the scripture from Matthew 6:19 -34. And explain it, he did. And more. This was the best explanation of those verses I have ever heard, and I have read these verses more than once.
After the service, I approached him and thanked him, and adding that if ever he needs some help in building or maintaining his website, just give me a call or an email. If some of you who are reading this blog needs help in your church's website, email me at reymendoza@gmail.com All my services f…

Keep that video!

Ever liked a video in youtube? Well, most of us do. And we want to keep some of them to show it to our friends (think cool factor).

I have and mp4 player and recently I discovered how to keep those flv video format from you tube and transfer it to my portable video player to watch during my daily commute. Here's how;


Go to youtube.com and search for your video, get the (url)link of that page
Go to http://keepvid.com - read the instructions there and download that video
Download the free encoder (and flv player, if you want)to convert your video in the format that your player can read at rivavx.com


There are other ways to do it, but by far, this is the easiest way for me, no mess, no fuss. Enjoy your video!

The recap is written by Ms. Nelia De Jesus, Chief, Technical Cooperation Center of NCWDP or National Council for the welfare of disabled persons.

National Webmasters’ Interface on Accessible ICT for Persons with Disabilities “Empowering Persons with Disabilities through ICT” Mango Park Hotel, Cebu City May 15-18, 2006
The impact of the three Workshops (Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao) jointly launched by DSWD, NCWDP and CICT greatly inspired participating agencies to come up with “disabled-friendly” websites as a tool to generate IT-related work opportunities with and for persons with disabilities.
The increasing IT-related jobs brought in by western countries’ outsourcing trends have opened up opportunities for many Filipinos, those with disabilities included. Medical transcriptions, call centers, data con…
