Jumping Red Ants

April 25, 2008

it was the first time i saw them. well, at least, that’s how i would describe those creatures. they were like leeches. oval in shape, flat. crawlers. how do they jump? by inverting their body structure from being flat to being rounded at the bottom. then flicking their sides to the ground. yung parang laruan noong mga bata kami. yung free sa chichirya. yung pinipindot sa gitna. it’s a hollow semi spherical toy. basta…

ok. so ayun. i realized they existed… when they were biting me. one at a time. as in one at a time. parang alam nila when the first one was crushed. haha. crushed. siyempre, when they were biting me, i would run my hand over the area, flattening and crushing them. sakit kasi eh. pero wawa naman sila.

it kept on going and going and going. kahit na malayo na ako doon sa inital place of contact. huhuhu. aray. sakit ng mga kagat.

that was the point wherein i realized, it was a dream. i was dreaming all along. hahaha… i woke up even scratching my legs.

ayun. umiktad na tuloy ako sa pagkakahiga. kaya eto, nagbablog ako.

Hi <contact>.

As part of our ongoing expansion plans, and as part of our decision-making procedures regarding procurement of internet services from your company, we would like you to send us the best possible traceroute and pings available for us ASSUMING an E1 (2048kbps) dedicated leased line AND a DSL (with a CIR of at least 512kbps) connection from our expansion office at the <expansion office> building to the following IP addresses:

xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

As part of our evaluation of our backup procedures and contingency plans, we need to know which possible backbones you could provide us over those assumed connections.

Another request is for information regarding which Telco or company will be servicing the last mile to the said location.

Hopefully you could provide all the information by Wednesday next week, April 9, 2008, Manila. Our company will be deciding by morning of April 12, 2008, Manila to facilitate the smooth coordination of all required services on our expansion office.

By the way, just to inform you, the target opening of our <expansion> office is on the 2nd or 3rd week of June. So hopefully your company will be servicing our required Internet services.

Thank you and hoping for an immediate reply.


Disable Bayantel Call Waiting Feature

April 4, 2008

Hi. To anyone who can read his post, how do you temporarily disable Bayantel’s Call Waiting feature?

Heck, I am still on dial-up. The account owner is not in Manila. Customer service requires the owner to call them up so that they will give out the dialing procedures.

Conspiracy theory…

They don’t give it out on purpose to force you to upgrade to their DSL plan.

But as much as we would like to avail of a DSL plan, the account owner is NOT IN MANILA. So papers would not be signed.

DARN LUCK. Sigh.. 😀

One dissatisfied customer here… but because of circumstances.

Anyone willing to help? Thanks!
