Is there some new scam/worm/botnet making the rounds? A lot of weird chatbots have been adding me on Yahoo Msngr recently. :/

We spoke at Xavier earlier this morning. (Haven’t gotten up *that* early in a while…) Met a much warmer response than expected. :)

@yapsestagle which phone did you eventually decide on?

via Echofon in reply to yapsestagle

You can grab Wildfire @byimplication from our temporarily ugly site: http://byimplication.com/ :)

Magic Trackpad… not sure if want. The other new hardware, on the other hand…

http://css3please.com/ is so awesome for cross-browser CSS3 effects.

@xtauymatiao wow, you play starcraft? or RTSes in general? :))

via Echofon in reply to xtauymatiao

Okay, turns out the Starcraft 2 Guest Pass thing gives you 7 hours of play. Mabibitin lang ako. Hahaha. Need to acquire own copy.

via Echofon

It’s not mine though. :( The included starcraft 2 guest pass trial things are a brilliant move, however.

An old video, but one beautiful and profound enough to be worth re-sharing. “We Are Here: The Pale Blue Dot.” http://youtu.be/2pfwY2TN…

via Echofon

OH WELL. hahaha.

@tro_jan Also for the sake of school pride, and all that. But the ice cream definitely helps, doesn’t it? ;)

via Echofon in reply to tro_jan

@hirika FIC will be at the campus of the winning school. So yes, we do.

via Echofon in reply to carauymatiao

I’d like Ateneo to beat La Salle, if only for the free ice cream in school. Haha.

@yapsestagle Happy birthday dude :)

@oceansandwaves There’s a shop near us called “Adobo Putoshop”

via Echofon in reply to oceansandwaves

@sarmikael I wouldn’t call it ready for everyday use yet. It gets quite warm, mobile data and bluetooth don’t work. Touch response is laggy.

via Echofon in reply to mcoyiuto

@tjmanotoc You can just type “123 USD in PHP” in Google to get conversions. Works also with stuff like “40 km/h in mph”

@richtuason I think these elements made Inception more palpable to me. (totems as reality checks, nested dreams like false awakenings, etc.)

via Echofon

@ImagineCupJP uploaded a video of our Game Design finalist presentation at the Warsaw Opera House. Thanks! http://youtu.be/_d9paPmK…

via Echofon

Actually, after thinking about Inception, I think Christopher Nolan was inspired by some techniques/elements of Lucid Dreaming.

via Echofon

Just watched Inception with @ginoafable and Kenneth Umali. It was awesome. Go watch it.

@marionjames05 Thanks! It was also our pleasure to have you guys there :D You guys should try for IC again next year!

via Echofon in reply to marionjames05

@levi_io Why, you feel validated as a game designer? :))

via Echofon in reply to levi_io

A lot of people still don’t have electricity. :O Kurt came over to go online and play games (as expected).

I was walking down the hallway, when the power went out. Then I walked into an open door. Fail.

via Echofon

Okay, power’s out. Thank you, epic wind.

via Echofon

Agreed. RT @chamiewong: Why did we have to graduate? =( I miss being a student and hanging out with people alllllll dayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.

via Echofon

My nose disagrees with this weather. /sipon

@richtuason Not quite. (probably out of my own pocket) We want to use it wisely for our future plans. :)

I need to buy an Xbox 360 controller. And probably an Xbox 360 too. (For dev’t, not playing on, but I’d like that too. ;)

@richtuason Not sure. Apparently, someone told them that we registered as a team officially from Ateneo, which is not the case.

Philippine Star fails. I’d like to make clear that @levi_io is from UP, and Kenneth is from DLSU. http://bit.ly/cR2scN

I slept nearly 12 hours straight last night. (Probably because I barely slept during the trip.)

okay, so now I’m tempted to do facebook, if only to keep in touch with people.

@VioletGray Actually, I’d like to find a recorded copy too. Haha. Thanks much! :)

@VioletGray Sorry, I meant I watched them at the actual event earlier. I was just expressing my enthusiasm. Sorry about that!
