It’s been a while since I posted something in the blog, I am sorry, i had a lot of material in all this time for at least making a few post but honestly i didn’t felt like doing so. First of all i have to say that the Ubuntu 10.10 is currently in beta status and its final release is due to October but i find so many issues with Ubuntu 10.1o netbook edition that i honestly don’t think most of them cant be solve in the time left. Also i tried OpenSuSe 11.3 in my netbook and finally Kubuntu 10.10 and 10.04 LTS. Which one of them i decided to let install in my netbook?

The story goes like this. I had on my Acer Aspire One netbook Ubuntu 10.04, it worked perfectly on the netbook, fast, secure, pretty interface, all the good stuff you get just by using Linux 🙂 Then suddenly i just decided to upgrade to the Ubuntu 10.10 Beta just to test the new Unity interface on my netbook. The experience wasn’t so nice honestly, 10.10 was very slow in every aspect, programs take very long to load and well everything in general was slow. About the interface well the new Unity needs a lot more work, the sidebar on the left don’t have auto-hide function, it take a lot more space in the screen than the old Ubuntu Netbook interface, so now i had less space to browse the Internet, applications and everything in general. I know is a beta and 10.10 its still one month away from release approximately and there is a lot to fix.

Then i decided to remove Ubuntu 10.10 from the netbook completely and try other thing, the one i choose was yet another beta Kubuntu 10.10 for netbooks. Everything was fine with it for a while, i downloaded a few basic programs and ran it like 1 or 2 days everything working fine but suddenly i updated 10.10 and the updated caused the Kubuntu daemon to crash on every start and the wifi stopped working, i tried everything but didn’t make the wifi work again so i got tired of it and decided to try a new distro, OpenSuSe. OpenSuSe 11.3 looked nice but there was a program with it, i couldnt make the OpenSuSe image bootable on the USB, i tried unetbooting, the ubuntu application to make bootable pen drives and nothing worked, the only thing that worked was via terminal. I booted the netbook from the OpenSuSe bootable USB and test it first, all was fine but suddenlyon the install the screen turned black and i couldnt intall OpenSuSe, i tried multiple times but no results. Finally i got tired of everything and downloded Kubuntu 10.04 normal edition, not the netbook one because you cant change from plasma to normal KDE interface in 10.04, you can on 10.10 which i loved, and i dont like the netbook plasma interface much. I just made the KDE taskbar to autohide and the windows to maximize and it works perfectly on the netbook. Is a little slower than the gnome interface but nothing serious, runs almost the same. Im loving Kubuntu on my netbook, runs fine and have a pretty interface. The screenshots in this post are from 10.04.

note: took a while to post this, i had it saved on draft for a while and still have other post saved and need to finish them and post them 🙂

Hello Earl!


If you watch news constantly you probably know there is a Hurricane near Puerto Rico, the Hurricane is category 4 which is a very dangerous one. Luckily for us the hurricane just miss land for just a few. I mean we will get some rain and some winds around 50 – 60 MPH but no big deal. Right now the storm is passing by and there isn’t much rain at all, maybe later it will start to get worse. There is some breeze but nothing dangerous or out of ordinary. Puerto Rico doesn’t get a mayor hurricane since 1998 when hurricane Georges stroked the island and caused lot of damage. I like storm and all that stuff for some reason, they can be nice but been inside a big category hurricane like back in 1998 is not so nice. The sound of the wind is so scary, is something scary to live.

Today At University classes got suspended at 12:00 PM and probably tomorrow there is no class either so ill be around here. Electricity hasn’t gone for now thanks god neither the internet lol but well ill keep around until a blackout comes or I fall asleep. The night is very good to sleep and cold, rainy, windy. It would be so awesome to have someone to sleep with but sadly I am alone :(, boooo sucks. Such is life hahaha.

Well talk to you later if we continue to live pass all this events, haha well maybe is not that bad. Bye!

First week @ University


I haven’t post in a very little long time, i suppose there wasn’t much to talk about. Now that classes have started i have more free time around university bored so i suppose ill write more regularly, like i am doing now.

So this is my second day @ the University and well even tho there is a little emotion because this is my last year, the beginning of classes didn’t came without problems. First i had to get a certification of graduation whatever its name is, i just did two weeks before classes started, the thing cost 100 dollars. Two weeks before classes started i had to go to an office and do a huge line and wait around 5 hours in it, she told me the steps i had to follow to get that certification. Now i have to keep doing the lines because problems with the scholarship and payments but well always happens, I haven’t even attended a class room yet but i hope to do so tomorrow, is the first week anyways :). The university is a little boring this year, most people from Computer Science (at least most that i know) have graduated already, there are a few friends around still, but anyways lets hope i can finish this and have a good future.

In other subject as i mentioned in post before my Playstation 3 was really starting to get damage. One day while my friend was visiting a gamestop to buy a PSN card he asked how much they would give in trade in value for a PS3, the store guy said 200 dollars for a working one. I was like whatttt, thats a good deal (I suppose). So i took my PS3 from the car which i had there for some casualty of life lol, and he tested it and everything and he said 200. The problem with the PS3 was that it turn itself off after around 5 hours of play due to overheating i suppose, out course the gamestop worker wont test the PS3 for long. Me and my friend went to my house to get the cables and controller and gave it away, i asked for a gamestop card with 200 value then headed to other town and bought a new PS3 slim with 100 more added, better than later expending 300. So anyways i also bought Batman Arkham Asylum for xbox, i might talk about it later. Im out…


The title is a little biased 🙂 I know, but well it is awesome. So well this last few weeks the games in Mayaguez were in there way, they ended this past Sunday. Puerto Rico athletes gave a lot of joy to there people, we earned many gold medals in different sports and events but among the most important ones was the basketball, track and field and volleyball. Puerto Rico is always strong in basketball and volleyball, there very good and in this games the prove it once again. I will put a few videos about the games and all the excitement related to the victory, thanks to all the athletes for giving so much joy to Puerto Rico with there victories and medals, making this nation and its identity stronger. I am blessed to be Puerto Rican

Basketball: Puerto Rico vs Mexico

Volleyball: Puerto Rico vs Venezuela

DC Universe Online


I was looking forward this game a long time ago since it was announced, the game looks awesome so far in the game play videos that have been shown in E3 and other places. Although Not much information have been announced regarding character customization, creation, powers, talent trees and anything like that, if the game will have gold  to buy things, an economy, lot of questions are in the air and no one knows the answer yet. I played World of Warcraft before and it is a good MMO but i just got tired of it because I didn’t have no raiding guild, PvP group or anything so I was just doing battlegrounds. DC universe look like the MMO for me because if for the PS3 and you can use the controller, which I am not so good with the keyboard, also the game looks very fun and so far I am very impress with how is looking so far. That doesn’t mean I will buy the game at release, I will wait for a week or so after the game releases and check if is any good, population and game play, all the information I can get. The game is subscription based, that means it will cost 15 dollars a month to play, that was kinda expected since most good MMO are pay 2 play but if I am going to pay to play this game I expect it to be very good, fun and they support the game as is expected, add lot of content and even, the game have to be almost perfect.

The trailer above is a CGI trailer, probably the intro in the game. It is very awesome and nice looking, this trailer was released days ago in the comic con 2010. The beta sign in process is already taking place, you can sign in for the beta at the DC Universe Online web site, no date for the Beta have been announce. DC Universe Online will be release this November 2.

Today was a weird day and sad in a way. First of all a waterspout (trompa marina in spanish) in case you don’t know is a Tornado but it forms in the ocean, in case the waterspout go into land it is then a tornado. Don’t be alarm, it wasn’t a strong tornado that passed by Puerto Rico but it was weird definitely, sadly the inauguration of the Mayaguez Central American and Caribbean games was due to start today but the climate didn’t allow the celebration to took place, well get to that later now I am going to tell my experience. I went to get a haircut in the house of the barber with my friend, he work in his home, around 12 PM. He started with me first to do his job, while I was getting the haircut my friend said: “What is the forecast for today? the sky is weird, it was sunny then now is all black and cloudy” everyone there answered like yea is true, nothing is in the forecast for today that I know. Then the wind started to blow and rain to fall, there was a blackout and my haircut stayed incomplete, yea I didn’t looked nice :|. So we enter his home to hide from the wind and rain, the wind was probably around 30 MPH but all happen suddenly we were in shock, I even received a call from my friend Jomarie asking me what was going on, because she was on the road driving and all that started to happen. After the wind and rain pass, we had to go to another barber so he finish my haircut because electricity never came in the previous barber home. The wind was very strong, we all were like what the fuck is going on. Later we find out it was a waterspout that hit land and caused some damage.

video when the lights and all that stuff felt because the winds in the new Mayaguez stadium.

The sad part was that Mayaguez got the worse part, the central american and caribbean games are going to be celebrated there and today was the inauguration event. Sadly it was cancelled because all the lights, kiosk, stage went flying and was seriously damage. The event was postponed for tomorrow but the games schedule wasn’t affected thankfully, all goes according to schedule except the inauguration event that is due tomorrow. It was just a scary moment, nothing serious. There was a few people injured but no one die. The hurricane season starts soon, Puerto Rico is in the way of Hurricanes, luckily we don’t get a direct and strong impact since 1998. God is sending warnings, we should prepare because worse things will happen sooner or later.

Congratulations Spain


All I have to say is congratulations Spain for winning against Holland which wasn’t an easy task and earning the World Cup. I think Holland deserved more the cup because they are one of the best teams in the world that still haven’t win it, they have come close in second place tree times but without success. That said Spain team is very good and also Casillas is one of my favourites players, the goal keeper position is the one I like the most. He is one of the three goal keepers I currently like most, first is Oliver Kahn and then Casillas and Chilavert. Holland had many goal chances in that match but they didn’t score sadly, I said at the beginning that maybe this match was going to penalties which Spain was going to win easy thanks to Casillas but Iniesta score in the extra times and Spain won. Holland came second once again earning Silver, Germany came Third earning Bronze also. Iker Casillas earned the Golden glove award for best world cup keeper and Thomas Müller earned the Golder Boot and best young player, is amazing that Mueller with just 20 years old have done all this and play so well. Germany is a rising force others should fear (always is anyways) for the next world cup and tournaments, the young inexperienced team they had in this cup will be more prepare and experienced in the future with this young stars like Mueller. Here are Müller achievements at the young age of 20, just wow what a future he have.

Thomas Müller Honors:
Bayern Munich
  • Bundesliga champion (1): 2010
  • DFB-Pokal winner (1): 2010
  • UEFA Champions League runner-up: 2010
Germany
  • FIFA World Cup third place: 2010
Individual
  • FIFA World Cup Golden Boot: 2010
  • FIFA World Cup Best Young Player: 2010

Any ways congratulations to Spain for there first world cup, see you in Brazil 2014. I hope in 4 more years can go to Brazil and enjoy some games. I’m going to miss the world cup, is already over and I don’t have cable to see the leagues, 4 more years to go :(. Here are both Holland and Spain starting line for the final game, I put this pictures so we can remember the teams.
