Changed Password

I am on vacation for nine (9) days with my father, brother and two nephews.  I took the chance to be away from the busy city and have some time to rest on doing the household chores.  I do not intend to bring laptop because I want to relax and stay away from online life for a moment.  However, my work is online so I have to bring laptop to check if I have writing jobs.  Since the battery of my laptop needs to be replace, I asked the sister if I can borrow hers.  I am glad she said yes.

In my two days at the province, I thought of checking my account in paid site to see if I have writing job.  The problem is I do not memorized my password.arghs!  I have to change my password in the paid site I am working and change the password also of my social media accounts.  If only I have saved the passwords in my phone or in my notebook I do not need to change password.  I am glad that I memorized my yahoo mail password or else I am dead.  This is a lesson that I should learn.  After what happened, I have saved all the passwords in my phone, and notebook.  So, when I forgot the password, I have a copy.

Gadgets to ease the boredom

Stranded!  Yes, we are  stranded at the port of Cagayan de Oro because the tickets for Bohol are fully booked.  We cannot get any ticket even a chance passenger ticket.  We we’re stranded for eight hours and it was like days of being there looking at the horizon and do not know what are we going to do.  There is a way though to reach Bohol but via Cebu.  Long route and it will cost us.  But I’d rather get it than stay stranded.right?  The vessel going to Cebu will leave at 7 in the evening.  We have to wait for eight hours doing nothing at the port.  Times like that, I really appreciate the importance of my gadgets.

While waiting for the boarding time, I played games on my tablet while my father playing games on my cellphone/mobile phone.  It eases our boredom indeed.  The problem is that the gadgets are running out of battery.  We have to recharge it so we can receive message and calls from our family back home especially my older sister who is monitoring about his son who is with us.  My tablet and phone are battery empty.  Good thing my father’s vintage phone has enough battery, they can contact us still.  Times like this, I do not regret buying those gadgets.  They are my investments from the online job I earned.

Precinct-Count Optical Scanners

What is PCOS Machine?  This is an Optical Scanners that will be using during election period.  This is a machine that will read votes based on pencil markings.  The country has been using this machine since 2010.  I must say, it was the first time computerized election in the history of the Philippines.  This is for faster count of votes, transferring of data is faster, and early determination of the winners compared to manual counting of votes.  It was a good idea, however, there were issues that some machines are failures.  But in fairness to the authority, they were able to fixed it to pursue the election day.

The country will be having national election this month.  And there are issues circulating that the machine is not performing well.  I have seen on social media and on the news about these issue.  Whether it is true or not, I hope that they will fixed this before the election day.  I also hope that the authority/administration will not use this machines to cheat to make sure the victory of their candidate/s.  As what I have read and seen of those OFW’s who already voted and disappointed of the result on their receipt.  I pray to God that He will give us clean and honest election.  Also pray that this machine won’t be an instrument of unfair/cheating election.
