Posted by NiXiE~ at 5:03 PM 2 comments
I've received lots of text saying and asking if she's really dead and why.
Here's one of the text messages:

"YAHOO Breaking News

Then suddenly somebody texted me again saying....

"Beyonce's not dead. Google it. It's just a hoax. Even her boyfriend, Jay-Z was rumored to be dead."

I dont know if it is true. But it give me creeps while in a tricycle. I really cant believe. Hoping it wasnt true. Im tryin' to search it, but there's no result.

If it is just a humor, fvck! Stop making this kind of news. It wasn't funny, really. Read the rest of this entry >>

Hackers attack Twitter, Facebook also slows down

Posted by NiXiE~ at 11:51 AM 1 comments
NEW YORK — A hacker attack Thursday shut down the fast-growing messaging service Twitter for hours, while Facebook experienced intermittent access problems.

Twitter said it suffered a denial-of-service attack, in which hackers command scores of computers toward a single site at the same time, preventing legitimate traffic from getting through.

The attacks appear to have been related to the Russia-Georgia political conflict. They started with a flurry of spam e-mail messages sent out this morning that contained links to pages written by a single activist on multiple social networking sites, according to Bill Woodcock, research director of the San Francisco-based Packet Clearing House, a nonprofit that tracks Internet traffic.

When people clicked on the links, they were taken to legitimate Web pages, but the traffic overwhelmed some servers and disrupted service, Woodcock said. He said it's hard to immediately tell whether it was a case of hackers trying to punish the sites for publishing views they disagree with, or if they were directing traffic to the sites out of sympathy for the activist's message.

"There's very little way of distinguishing which side was taking this action, because either side could hypothetically benefit from it," Woodcock said.

The fact that a relatively common attack could disable such a well-known Web site shows just how young and vulnerable Twitter still is, even as it quickly becomes a household name used by celebrities, large corporations, small businesses and even protesters in Iran.

"Clearly they need a stronger infrastructure to be able to fight this kind of attack," said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant at computer security firm Sophos. Twitter's tech support teams, he added, "must be frankly out of breath" trying to keep up with the site's enormous growth.

According to comScore, Twitter had 20.1 million unique visitors in the United States in June, some 34 times the 593,000 a year earlier.

For Twitter users, the outage meant no tweeting about lunch plans, the weather or the fact that Twitter is down.

"I had to Google search Twitter to find out what was going on, when normally my Twitter feed gives me all the breaking news I need," said Alison Koski, a New York public-relations manager. She added she felt "completely lost" without Twitter.

The Twitter outage began at about 9 a.m. EDT (1300 GMT) and lasted a few hours.

Facebook, whose users encountered intermittent problems Thursday morning, was also the subject of a denial-of-service attack, though it was not known whether the same hackers were involved. Unlike Twitter, Facebook never became completely inaccessible. Facebook said no user information was at risk.

LiveJournal, a 10-year-old online diary and blogging site that has waned in popularity in recent years, was also the subject of a denial-of-service attack that lasted about an hour Thursday morning, the company said.

By early afternoon both Twitter and Facebook seemed to be functioning, giving cubicle-bound social media addicts a collective sigh of relief. Twitter warned, though, that as it recovers, "users will experience some longer load times and slowness."

Technology business analyst Shelly Palmer told AP Radio that denial-of-service attacks are a reality of the information age.

"People tend to want to take sites that are very public and go after them," said Palmer, managing director of Advanced Media Ventures Group. "In fact you'd be surprised how many sites for major companies are really attacked on a daily basis. This is a crime, it's a real crime and it should be treated that way."

Earlier this week, Gawker Media, which owns the eponymous media commentary blog and other sites, was also attacked. In a blog post, Gawker said Tuesday it was attacked by "dastardly hackers," leading to server problems that caused network-wide outages Sunday and Monday. It was not immediately clear whether those attacks were related to Twitter's.

Thursday's was not the first — and likely not the last — outage for Twitter.

Besides planned maintenance outages, overcapacity can cripple Web sites, especially such fast-growing ones as Twitter and Facebook.

In fact, service outages on Twitter once were so common that management began posting a "Fail Whale" logo on the Web site to signal when the service was down. The logo featured a whale being hoisted above the water by a flock of birds.

Millions of Twitter users aren't familiar with the 3-year-old service's history of frequent outages because they began tweeting in the past six months, around the same time that the San Francisco-based company had was spending more money to increase its computing power and reduce the disruptions. With the added capacity, the Fail Whale rarely surfaces any more.

Even so, the entire site being down means Twitter hasn't put enough measures in place to prevent such an attack, Cluley said. That could include working with Internet service providers to filter potentially malicious requests from legitimate ones, as well as having servers spread out around the world.

Denial-of-service attacks are typically carried out by "botnets" — armies of infected computers formed by spreading a computer virus that orders compromised machines to phone home for further instructions. They are generally used to send out spam or steal passwords, though some can be commanded to overwhelm Web sites.

Successful attacks on popular Web sites were common earlier this decade. Sites such as eBay, Amazon.com and CNN were overwhelmed by such attacks, sometimes for days, in 2000.

But Thursday's attack underscores the fact that no one is immune.

"With these attacks, if you get enough infected machines ... you can take down anyone," said Dmitri Alperovitch, vice president of threat research at security vendor McAfee Inc.

Last month, dozens of U.S. and South Korean sites, including those of the White House and South Korea's presidential Blue House, were targeted in denial-of-service attacks.

For Lev Ekster, who runs a mobile cupcake truck called CupCakeStop in New York, Thursday's Twitter hiccup meant no tweets to customers and fans on the truck's location and the day's flavors.

But it wasn't the end of the world.

"As soon as I saw the Twitter outage, I went on to our Facebook fan page," said Ekster, who also uses Twitter to get reviews of his cupcakes, find employees and let people know about giveaways.

The lesson, he says, is "not to limit yourself to Twitter and live or die by Twitter." - AP

Goodbye and Thanks you Mrs. Corazon Aquino

Posted by NiXiE~ at 2:08 PM 0 comments
As I've said on my previous post, I really dont know how good/bad she was or what she did in our country. But now, as days passed, ang dami kong nalalaman about her. Filipinos were so blessed to have her in our country. To have a good leader like her. Hm, if there are SOME people with that kind heart, then why they cant be a good leader also? :|
Mahirap ba maging mabuting leader?

Last sunday, was the celebration of my Tito's Bday. They were watching news about sa lamay ni Cory sa La Salle Greenhills. May kinukwento dad ko na, During edsa II days yata, nagpupunta sila dun na naglalakad lang from Bagong Bario up to Edsa. Tapos sila yung magbibigay ng food. Hm, actually hindi ko alam kung ano pinaglalaban dun sa Edsa Revolution na yun, pero wala akong marinig na negative about kay Cory Aquino dun sa sinasabi dad ko. So na isip ko, siguro nga, mabuti nga talaga cia. I am very shy naman to ask kung ano ba talaga nagawa niya sa bansa naten. Honestly, naguguluhan pa rin ako. Wag niyo na po itanung kung bakit :)

Kanina, nagising ako sa voice ni Kris Aquino. Hindi ko na umpisahan, pero super na-touch ako at parang nawala yung inis ko kay Kris Aquino (I hate her before because she's so maarte) tapos medyo naluluha ako whenever she cries. Na isip ko, ang hirap siguro talaga mawalan ng ina, lalo na sa part niya na parang puro sakit na lang ng ulo na ibigay niya tapos she's busy kasi artista siya. Tapos buong 12days niya lang nakasama yung mom nia (correct me if Im wrong) at lagi yung mga kapatid niya nag aasikaso. Lalo akong natouch na siya pa pala yung Favorite ng mom niya, kasi si Ninoy daw si Kris. Siguro namimis nga ni Mrs. Cory nun si Mr.Ninoy kaya naging fave nia din si Kris.

Siguro ngayon masaya na si Mrs. Cory kasi kasama niya na ulit si Mr.Ninoy. Masaya siya kasi, alam niyang okay ang buhay ng mga anak at apo na na iwan nia.

SORRY FOR THIS NON-SENSE POST :) Read the rest of this entry >>

Man Gives Himself DIY Circumcision With Nail Clippers!

Posted by NiXiE~ at 2:38 PM 0 comments
This is going to make every uncut guy that reads this squirm, and probably everyone else too.


A man who gave himself a DIY circumcision using nail clippers was taken to hospital for emergency treatment.

The young man had to be rushed to the Lister Hospital in Stevenage, Hertfordshire. The wound was disinfected to cleanse it before he was given a bed in an observation ward.

“This is something we would advise men never to attempt,” a medic said, (ya think?!) “The results can be quite horrific and long-lasting and have quite an affect on a man’s sexual performance.

“Using a pair of nail clippers must have caused excruciating pain, even if he had had a few drinks beforehand.”

RIP, CORY AQUiNO

Honestly, I really dont know her (aside from, she became a President here in our country) Never heard good and bad things about her. The last news that I read about her was, she's getting okay na yata. Then I joined the group (yata) na parang mag-susupport pa sakanya via twitter by putting a YELLOW RIBBON ON YER PiCTURE. Eh di ayon..
Then one morning, while ironing my uniform, I heard to my mom's radio na, "hindi pa sure kung saan siya ibuburol" I got shocked naman. Na isip ko, "after Michael Jackson, mukhang may namatay na naman na kilalang tao" I never thought na it was Cory Aquino na nga. I never tried to ask my mom din noon kasi I'm on a rush. Baka malate na kasi ako... Then nung narinig ko na si Boy Abunda, dun ko na lang na isip na si Cory Aquino nga. Tapos that day (Saturday) I am wearing our college shirt which is color yellow, something goldish na yellow pala, and na isip ko, pwedeng symbol toh na nakikiramay ako to her family.

Let's pray for her soul. I know wala na yung pain na nararamdaman niya ngayon and sana ganun nga din na iisip ng family niya. I dont have time to watch TV, kaya hindi ko din alam kung ano na talaga kalagayan ng family niya... Read the rest of this entry >>
