Virus and Vacation

I didn’t realize that it has been almost a month since my last blog entry. For some reason my personal laptop got infected with a virus. I guess that’s what happens when you have hundreds of users sharing one network and my anti-virus doesn’t update its definitions automatically. I was so paranoid that I decided not to use my laptop until I’m able to reformat it. It took me a couple of weeks before I finally had the time to reformat my laptop. My laptop is now running on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS – the Lucid Lynx. I have Windows XP but it won’t install properly on my laptop because of some compatibility issues so I tried to install Ubuntu and it worked/installed properly. I’ll settle for now with Ubuntu because the prices of the Windows OS here in Melbourne is a bit expensive compared to the prices in Manila.

Aside from the virus problem, I also returned to Manila 2 weeks ago for a short vacation. I returned to Manila last 6 August 2011. I had a week off and spent it with friends and family. I was able to finally meet Gel because I purchased an iPhone 4 from her which my sister now uses. :) Too bad we weren’t able to take pictures to document the day :( It was nice meeting you, Gel. Sa uulitin!

Will share more stories of that week on my next blog post, so watch out! :)

    :-) That’s so awesome meeting Gel. It’s nice to finally put proper faces to names online. I have met a few people online and we are lifelong friends and I class them as my best friends as they really know me more then anyone here in Australia.

    I met people I spoke to on MSN chat from the states in 2005. I can’t wait for your next blog :-) And I did get some much needed sleep. I literally hit the pillow and never woke up until my idiotic ex bf knocked on my window drunk. Urgh, men!
