It has been said music is what one’s life sounds like. I agree! When I was younger (like in my late elementary and early high school years), I used to lock myself in a room, play a cassette tape recorded instrumental version of my favorite songs and sing along. Being the timid that I am, I didn’t want my voice echoing around the house or the neighborhood so I always prefer a hairbrush for a microphone instead of using a real one, LOL!
My love to music has developed over the years. Somehow I can tell that you will eventually do better if your heart is all into what you are doing. I love singing a lot and I get glued in my chair every time a musical show is shown on TV.
I’ve learned how to play some musical instruments and have known musical gadgets – randall amps from musicians friend to name one. And for the love of it, I even get to record my own voice in recording studio. That was back in college and man… it really made me feel like a real star, LOL! This fascination brought me so much inspiration and even now that I am into something else, I still do find time to stop and listen to my favorites both old and new.

HACKING according to experts is to skillfully modify a certain computer program. Why skillfully? Because it takes ability and expertise for a person to intrude into someone else’s database. We, ordinary internet users are very subjective about it. We think it’s a crime, a detrimental activity to the IT security of big operating business companies, government agencies and other establishments. However, a tighter look at why such activity is being done may open our eyes to something new. I, myself even got surprised to this. There are beneficial reasons why hackers hack and understanding what these reasons are may help us realize that not all hackers are out there to commit a crime.
Ethical Hacking is dealing with the vulnerabilities of certain software thus, professional hackers makes it still useful by modifying instead of aggravating it. Anyone can become a real life professional hacker and get paid. Ethical Hacking is now a progressive career in the Information Technology Industry. Its fundamental role in IT Security is crucial. Nowadays, there are institutions that offer online courses in Security fundamentals, Ethical Hacking, Penetration Testing, Computer Forensics, Disaster Recovery and they certifies individual in various e-business and security skills.

I miss this place. This is where Rick and I used to hang out whenever he needs a snuff during our 8-day stay in Alu Hotel in Davao City. I don’t feel so good knowing about him having the habit to smoke but I didn’t know it’s something I could actually reckon with. And he doesn’t smoke like most people do. He can make some decent cigar deals
of his own (and that’s by literally making his own cigar minus the use of filters), light it, make 2-3 snuffs at time and he’s done. So not really that bad, huh! Plus his self-made cigars don’t smell as strong and well as bad as the manufactured ones. So if not for that and if not for his pretty admirable way of treating his habit I won’t be hanging around with him on the 6th floor of that building each time.

I usually find election campaign jingles annoying. But then the campaign period is up again and I guess I have no choice but to hear it when it’s there. While in Davao City last week, I’ve heard a few but they just come and go so it didn’t really bother me that much. This morning here in my hometown, I’ve heard of one for the first time since the campaign period started two weeks ago. Surprisingly it’s as if I am listening to some awesome Alvarez Guitars strumming to the tune of YMCA song. I’d say if all election campaign jingles are as well done as that I sure wouldn’t mind hearing them every now and then.
