    There are three kinds of death in this world. There’s heart death, there’s brain death, and there’s being off the network. –Guy Almes

    Last night, I found a suicide note from Sony V.

    Dear Ross,

    I have lived a long life where once I was useful. I now realize that my mental state is quickly declining. I do not have that power and speed I once possess. I know how you cared for me, especially when I was infected with a terrible virus. I saw your pain.

    My mental lapses are too much to bear.  Every time I collapse, I saw your desperation…your endless search for help to find your missing “part” in me.

    Today, I am taking matters into my own hands. Before I sign off, I want to thank you for all the good times. You turn me on every time I see your eyes gleaming on a new day. I am happy feeling your warm touch as you end your day. I promise to keep all your secrets. I am taking away with me everything you’ve given me.



    Soooonnnyyyy Vvvvv!!!

    Who is SonyV?

    It was a magical day when I first met SonyV.  He was sitting near the window. There was something about Sony’s onyx lines that captured my attention.  My friend handed me Sony’s credentials and I was impressed by his skills, IQ, memory and power.

    That very moment, I knew Sony’s the one I have to spend my life with. I went near Sony, touching his exquisite body. Teasingly he said: “You can’t afford me, baby.”

    I can’t resist the burning desire to be with SonyV. I decided to risk and paid for all his worth! I took SonyV home consenting to his condition that he has to be with his inseparable friends. I agreed to his desire.

    SonyV moved with ecstasy as he saw his throne inside my bedroom. He treated me well. I would come home from work and find him waiting for me. His body lighting up as I gently run my fingers on his keys.

    As I sit on my chair watching him perform before me, boasting all his power, I can hear his adorable  sound letting me know he is ready to serve me. As soon as he reaches his top form, his friends would eagerly assist him for my pleasure.

    My life then became a sort of “manage a trois!”
    Ross sobs as she recalls her life with departed SonyV and continues.

    SonyV and his friends were my inseparable companions. They gave me joy . They entertained me. They helped me with my project…everything!

    SonyV had a powerful voice, filling up my room together with his friend,  SonyV’s Media Center.  SonyV sung beautifully together with my itunes.
    SonyV together with his buddy, Mister Internet brower  gave me all the informations I wanted. They showed me  all the beautiful places I needed to see and hooked me up on dates with unknown faces inside the chat rooms.
    SonyV and his multi faceted Adobe friend helped me with my projects, creating together beautiful works of art.

    We enjoyed each others company for many years.

    Sony Vaio PCV-W20

    One day SonyV changed. He became temperamental, refusing to turn on or off on occasion.  He would suddenly freeze while I was in the middle of  writing a document or downloading a file from the internet. I would boot him up and he would open up very, very slowly. He was changing.

    Last night, I found SonyV completely…

    **Ross clutches chest **      … gone!

    I tried everything: rebooting, unplugging, holding the buttons down for long moments. Trying F1-F12, the dummy that I am who still doesn’t know their functions! But SonyV didn’t come back. Not even after Computer Repair admitted him.
    Just like that, SonyV and his friends left me together with all my files, all my photos, all my music!!!

    My SonyV, my love, the center of my life. How could you do this to me? Leaving me alone in this cold hard world. Turning you on was my joy every morning, and shutting you down was my last thought before I sleep. How will I survive without you, how will I find all my media files, all my documents now?
    What will happen to Quotes in Can now?

    SonyV…I will think of you continually. Everyone will hear of your wonder and passing away.

    I will go on but it will not be easy.  Where ever you are, I will forever regret your loss. I love you and I will miss you, my Sony Vaio.

    In loving memory,
    Your administratorRoss


    To my readers, this is one reason why I will not be posting regularly as before… I’m grieving for my Sony’s death and it will take me months to replace him again.

    For the time being…browse around my posts and if you can memorize all my quotes while waiting for a new post…please do so!

    I hope you will understand…*sniffs**

    When I took office, only high energy physicists had ever heard of what is called the Worldwide Web…. Now even my cat has its own page.

    Bill Clinton, announcement of Next Generation Internet initiative, 1996
    42nd president of the United States (1946 – )



    “Evolution of the C programmer:

    • 0 months to 1 month: complete beginner
    • 1 month to 1 year: incomplete beginner
    • 1 year to 2 years: acolyte
    • 2 years to 3 years: adept
    • 3 years to 8 years: expert
    • at 8 years: discovers
    • 8 years+: buggrit, back to beginner again !”

    -Richard Heathfield

    Even his cat has its own page, says Bill Clinton. Who doesn’t?? My neighbor has a website about her favorite pet: a Madagascar hissing cockroach! My  friend’s site is about his Tarantullas. So what’s new? Everyone is going gaga about putting a web page on anything under and above the sun.

    Now, we are not going to do a geek’s language, even that simple C program, ok?

    We’ve already checked our basic skills and tools (Part I); we’ve  talked about planning and designing (Part II); and now we are going to B U I L D!

    You’ve read  it right! Nothing is wrong with your eyes, I guess, it’s my head acting weird again.  It’s coaxing me to write something about HTML.  Huh? my right ear raising its lobes while pinching my right cheek refusing to understand what my head is telling me.

    Ok, I’ll do it but I’m not going to pretend I am an expert on this area, I am a newbie remember? Like every programmer, you should not stop learning.

    Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficient means for going backwards.  ~Aldous Huxley

    To be familiar with HTML is like knowing how to change your own oil or change a flat tire — it can save you a lot of time and money. It can give you a chance to tweak a pre made template for your website if you do not have enough time to make your own. It is fun, I assure you.

    HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language. It is the “hidden” code that helps us communicate with others on the World Wide Web (WWW).

    The tools you need : For MACs, that would be SimpleText and for Windows, Notepad.
    Fortunately, HTML is written in plain text so you don’t need fancy software programs to create your HTML files.

    In order not to bore you, I asked my friend to pose for you.

    Tags are enclosed in angle brackets, <like this> or try to imagine how

    My Angelina will show you >> tombraider.jpg

    Tags come in two varieties: single tags and paired tags.

    The difference is that a single tag works on its own, while a pair of tags must have an open and closing part. The closing part is just like the opening except that it is prefixed by a slash.

    Single tags are used for separators or for inserting a single item. They do not have a matching closing tag.


      <br> marks the end of a line. (stands for line break.)
      <hr> marks a horizontal rule. (A line across the page.)
      To  insert an image, pls follow instruction below
      Please click it for better view >>howpic.jpg

    Some common paired tags are:

      <p> and </p> to start and close a paragraph.
      <b> and </b> for bold.
      <i> and </i> for italics.
      <em> and </em> for emphasis (usually interpreted as italics by the browser).
      <strong> and </strong> for strong text (usually interpreted as bold by the browser).
      <h1> and </h1> for the biggest heading.
      <ol> and </ol> for an ordered (numbered) list.
      <ul> and </ul> for an unordered (bulleted) list
      <font> and </font> for text font changes.
      <sup> and </sup> for superscript text.
      <sub> and </sub> for subscript text.

    It is important to make sure that pair tags are always closed properly  (e.g., that the tag that comes last is closed first and vice versa). For instance, if you wanted to create a section of red, bold text, you should write the code like this:

    <font color=”red”><b>A flower.</b></font>not: <font color=”red”><b>A flower.</font></b>line.gif


    Now, how are you going to set up your page? It’s easy like eating popcorn.To start a page on Notepad for Windows, go to start/programs/accessories/notepad. A window will pop up like this:notepadex.gif

    Copy and paste the code below into Notepad like this:<html>

    <title>Your page title goes here</title>


    —Everything that appears on your page will be entered here, text, images etc.—</body>

    Then add your own stuff in between the <body> and </body> tags. 

    For  color codes try

    Example code of what to add to your <body>

    <BODY bgcolor=”#33ccff”><br><br><center>I am ugly. Check out my pic<img src=”” mce_src=””></center></body>


    When you’re finished, click on the “x” in the upper right hand corner of Notepad. A screen will come up asking you if you want to save the changes, choose yes.


    After you choose yes, that you want to save the changes, this screen comes up. Name your file “index.html” because it will be the first page of your Web site, and then click “save”:


    After creating your page/site test it with different browsers:  Internet Explorer (IE) 7, 6, 5.5 and 5.0, Firefox 2.0 and 1.5, Opera 9 and 8, Netscape and so on.  Then there are the different platforms: Windows, Macintosh (Mac), Linux, etc.

    It is a good idea to test your site with multiple versions of multiple browsers particularly if you plan to do anything fancy on your site. When you are able to test your pages this way, you can at least reduce the number of problems your pages have with the different browsers.

    I’ve learned about this lately after my friend BEA related her problems she encountered when viewing my other website.

    As a newbie, I was perplexed about what she told me as I can view it without any problems on my end, even my other friends with different browsers …thus, I made my geeky searching…


    Now, if the words “will” and “action” to create your own site or page are nowhere to find because you were not able to divide your gift of 24 hours  into a well spent and balanced day, then I would suggest,  to look out for this man, he’ll help you. I hope.
