Exams..exams..exams..

Nothing beats more than the hellest of hellest week we would have in medical school by far but the fast approaching finals week. That would be March 15 to 19, 2010. Some doctors said that the final exams will be a comprehensive exam – from the very first discussion we had last semester up to the last topic that we could cover up this semester. Smiley In short, from preface of the book to the last index page. Just imagine now how my eyes would get baggy after this semester. SmileyStarting today up to Friday next week, we are already actually flooded with exams. But good enough, that some doctors are sharing their lecture notes so we won’t read books, as required but only when needed. Honestly, its really a great hassle for us to read a 5-chapter exam that would only comprise 50 items comparing to a minimum of 10-page lecture notes. Oh well, we would rather choose the latter so we could study 2 or 3 subjects a night. Wouldn’t you?

The only prob that we could have if doctors will share their lecture notes is the printing of those colored images. Off course, we won’t understand well the notes if not to print it colored. And darn, my printer cartridge now easily gets empty. Smiley One of my friends suggested me to use Dell Ink Cartridges. I haven’t tried it though, but as what she shared, Dell is a real great brand for printer cartridges. I might just look for it as soon as I went home, maybe by the end of this month or on the first week of April in Davao City, and change then my printer too.

Aja to me. LOL!

 

Needs Refill

I haven’t noticed that I need my HP Ink Cartridges changed until I supposed to print one of the 15-page exam sets of notes in Family and Community Medicine this morning. Smiley I actually overlooked it coz I think I just had it changed with new cartridges yesterday. LOL! I remember the last time I bought new cartridges was before our 3rd-bimonthly exam, that was still on January 9. Isn’t that too long? Is it?

For almost three years now, this HP printer of mine has been serving me good. It has still on its best quality though am using it hard, sometimes too harsh like am letting it print hundreds of pages without resting. Yes, I did. That was when I was still having my thesis in college. I reproduced 5 copies of my more or less 150-page thesis. But look, my HP printer stands still and so loyal to me. Haha.

I am actually using the HP cartridge numbers 21 and 22 for black and colored ink cartridges, respectively. And I used to buy both cartridges at the same time. But since I got hard time looking for the combo cartridges wherein a set of cartridges 21 and 22 are packed as one, I opted to look for cartridges online. Good thing I stumbled upon Inkcartridges.com where I even found a number of top brands of ink cartridges that they are selling other thatn HP. Aside from that, they have been one trusted company selling ink cartridges online. And now, I am considering them where I’m gonna purchase one from them instead of going to Cebu City just for the two cartridges. What do you think?

Hotmail Down: Hotmail Services Unavailable

My early morning wake up message was “Hotmail down. The Hotmail Services Unavailable“. This was an SMS received from a blogger friend also. I was thinking he’s just joking, but as I headed over to Oshi, same statement banged on me: Hotmail down | Hotmail service unavailable Windows Live Messenger Services which includes Hotmail went down.
Minutes after, that friend of mine called me asking for help if I could open hotmail. He was just thinking that it’s only him that couldn’t open. He was actually worried about his savings account online wherein he requested money from PP. It’s supposed to be processed and all done today, but he couldn’t open his hotmail account coz hotmail is down.
My friend was already getting freak and his mind, I guess, was circling. So I opted to look for the admin of hotmail, but before contacting the support, I have my blog addict friend who sent me link thru my gmail for some news on hotmail services unavailable. I then followed it and below is what I have read.

MSNB statement:

“This morning, around 9:30am PST, the Windows Live ID sign-in service experienced a partial outage that caused some customers to not be able to sign into services using Windows Live ID for approximately one hour,” Microsoft said in a statement.

OMG it was. I will just update here if things will get better soon.

Doppelganger Week on Facebook

Know the latest on Facebook? It’s the Doppelganger Week on Facebook.


Doppelgänger Week
is the latest meme in Facebook.

Here’s how: switch your profile picture to the picture of a celebrity that someone has told you look like. And here’s a hint: since you can choose any picture, you can definitely cheat. Smiley Eventhough no one has told you that you look like such celebrity, you can still post his/her photo as your profile photo.At least in my case, though I haven’t changed my FB profile photo, Kuya Mel told me that I am even more beautiful than Ms. Earth 2008. LOL!

Thanks Kuya Mel for the Review. You can read HERE the review of Kuya Mel.

Webmaster, Am I?

I was rally bothered on being a webmaster. Last night I slept at around 12 midnight and was just thinking on how to work with those stuffs. I need to decide the soonest so that the Philippine medical students’ website wouldn’t be staggered.Today, before our classes started this morning, I still freakingly checked over the internet some, I think, useful and informative sites for me to be used. I stumbled upon 4 Cheap Web Hosting which is a useful web hosting guide web page. Aside from that, it is affordable and pocket wise. The said web hosting site provides webhosting services in a number of web hosts such as the linux and windows platforms and also on PHP and JSP scripting, MySQL, multiple domains and many more. From these listed services, I only have little information and knowledge on PHP scripting only. The rest, I got my mind turn circling. But I guess, with this 4 Cheap Web Hosting site, I might able to have clear ideas then.

Now, I am thinking of enrolling into an online webhosting tutorial even just for 2 hours a day or so for just a month. After reading informations on webhosting over the internet, I am somehow fascinated already on webhosting itself. Hehe. I am sure I could explore more the world wide web. Moreover, aside from accepting the offer on being a webmaster, it would be a great opportunity to work with other medical students even just thru the Philippine Medical Students’ website.

Hopefully, I really could.
