Since many problems tend to be simple ones that you can possibly troubleshoot on your own, rule out the possibility of dirty electrical contacts and loose fittings before assuming parts replacements and bringing the vehicle to a dealer or auto shop.
I’ve been with my web hosting company for over 2 years and I’ve never been happier. Since I started blogging using my own domain name (riannehillsoriano.com) in 2006, I miserably failed in choosing a reliable hosting company. I suffered endless lost blog posts, rebuilding web pages and blog over and over, hacking attempts, out-of-control spam comments, suspended pages for reasons I have no idea of, and not receiving any reasonable customer service help for any of my concerns. Add up the fact that all I know in this cyber domain is my self-learned knowledge in basic HTML. Indeed, you get what you pay for. For just over 20 USD a year type of service, all I got were wasted time and effort. I often surrendered and for months and years, i would stop maintaining my site and blog. Every year or after a few years, I would try another hosting company that would make my site and blog such a serious pain to maintain. All these continued until I finally found a reliable web hosting company with a practical deal 4 times more expensive than my prior accounts. It was the best investment I did for my site and blog. From then on, I have felt protected. I have gained peace of mind. They assisted me in dealing with spams and hacking. I was able to rebuild my site and blog from the ground up without any help. Yesterday, this web hosting company provided me a sign of gratitude, giving me a chance to get a brand new domain name of my choice for free for life, as long as I keep an account with them, which I really plan to do anyway. I couldn’t use an old, already registered domain name so I had to choose a new one. I
Sharing this from my fellow artists from Tuldok Animation Studios. This is our short film adaptation of the Bernardo Carpio story. We never thought that jumpstarting this animated short would have this personal impact to us involved in the project, given the entire world is currently at a halt. Suddenly, we realized how the lockdown and this story have something in common... The Bernardo Carpio Film Call for Character Design First, we hope you are coping up well in these trying times. As we find our own ways to help while keeping ourselves sane, safe, and healthy being more than halfway through the lockdown, we have decided to try to continue our 15-minute animated film project, the adaptation of the Legend of Bernardo Carpio, despite the halt of supposed funding opportunities. We still have one expected funding to continue, which gives us a ray of hope.We’re inviting artists to an experimental collaboration project for character designs for this short film. Although not directly related to the pandemic in our midst, the plight of Bernardo Carpio, the leader of the Filipino revolution against the Spaniards, hits very close to home to Filipinos currently locked down inside homes or facing the frontlines. This adaptation focuses on the entrapment of Bernardo Carpio inside the 2 Clashing Boulders in Montalban, Rizal. It is believed that once he finally breaks free from being locked down underground, it will mark the liberation of Filipinos from the oppression of their greedy leaders.As we try to help in our own ways and find some means to normalize our lives, make sense of things, and keep ourselves mentally and physically healthy, working on this passion project is something that we feel may help us, as well as other artists who have some means to pursue creative endeavors right now while locked up inside
Writing has been a significant part of my personal and professional life, but I’ve never been fond of diaries nor posting much of my personal stories online — whether through blogging or social media. Much about me online are work-related. But after trying to cope up and make sense of this pandemic plaguing the entire world and putting a halt to what we know as normal, reading about writing down our experiences in these trying times may actually be something I should do. Perhaps, it can be a good reminder of this point in our lives when much of our busy, fast-paced lives suddenly stopped and forced us to be home (or bravely face the world as frontliners). The first week of the lockdown, survival mode meant going to the grocery and health store to ensure we have enough supplies for the entire month. I didn’t hoard and I bought as much stuff we need as a family and I had to make sure we would still have funds left being from the middle class. Unfortunately, the high prices of everything was very much felt as I found myself grocery shopping with just enough but paying so much for them — it was just a cart of stuff and I almost run out of funds. It’s normal to check on news reports for government announcements and updates on the pandemic through TV, radio, and online. I realized, for the sake of my own health and sanity, I should avoid watching this sick president mumble for minutes and hours without anything concrete. Social media is a combination of good and bad — but at least I can control the content I put my focus on somehow. Old-school radio and audiobooks are awesome while in transit as always. From time to time, i try
