Of links and connections

Just sharing with the world two cartwheel-worthy events in my corner of the blogosphere:

--== FIRST ==--

After 10 years, 9 months, and 10 days or 3,937 days or 94,488 hours or 5,669,280 minutes or 340,156,800 seconds of being online via dialup access, I've finally crossed over to the broadband side =] I enjoyed my first full week last week of being connected via Sun Broadband Wireless.

I'm connected via SBW's Php799/month unlimited plan. So far, so good. I haven't experienced dropped/cut connection. Connection speed is at 3.6 Mbps all the time in our home here in Taguig City. The only time I had to call their tech support +6323953333 was at the start of my SBW service I can't seem to make it work. The call came through right away and the tech guy on the other of the line was patient and courteous. Apparently, I plugged the SBW HSDPA USB stick in the incorrect USB port; switching ports did the trick.

Easy, breezy downloads and uploads I enjoy whenever I am online =] Currently though, you can use the SBW in Metro Manila so check out the Sun Shops nearest you to see if your area is covered by the Sun Broadband Wireless service.

--== MORE IMPORTANT PIECE OF NEWS ==--

My blog (this blog) scored a fleeting mention in the widely-read, respected, and bookmarked blog of preeminent pundit Manolo Quezon. He said he "enjoyed" my blog entry about the ANC Leadership Forum, along with three other blogs he cited as windows through which those aspiring for the highest office in the land can get a glimpse of how the younger folk think.

A cross-posting of the same article by Mr. Quezon in the Inquirer.net Blogs section also led people to my obscure nook in cyberspace.

Thank you very much everyone for visiting and I hope to churn out more posts worthy of the time you spent online =]

  2. Wow, ang tagal mo rin nagtiyaga sa dial-up ah. Meron ako Smart BRO at gusto ko na ibenta kse I don't like the performance lalo na if I'm using it sa hapon. I agree with R-Y, celebrity ka na!
