Intel Corp. in Cavite will Close

AFTER months of keeping under wraps the inevitable, Intel Corp. has finally announced it will close its Philippine plant—with its 1,800 employees expected to be formally notified within two weeks that they will lose their jobs. The plant in Cavite is expected to be fully shuttered by April, sources said.
When I worked as a sales/technical support, Intel processor from socket 478 to 775 was the most saleable processor ever. Sad to hear that Intel Corp. will be closed by April this year. I had chatted a filipina blogger before informed me that Intel Corp. in Cavite will be closed and it will be transferred somewhere in Malaysia. She buzzed me with her message if I am connected to Intel Corp. because of my blog name as "intel828c". Actually, intel82c was derived from my favorite Intel chipset and my birthday 828. Nahh! it's only my blog name get connected and not my profession. hehehe Then, she said to me that her husband is presently working at Intel Corp. in Sta. Clara, California as IT Specialist. Awesome job! Both of them with their family are living in Arizona, USA.

What a Game ! Checkmated in 6 milliseconds left


Today is my day because I have won 6 times and defeated 2 times against with my 3 opponents in 8 different games. A total of 8 games all and all. Ashiqueash and I played a 5 minute bout. I thought I will be defeated on this game since I only have 3 officials left (a horse, queen and king) while my opponent have 4 officials left (2 rooks, queen and king). I said to my self that this game will be over against with my opponent "Ashiqueash". He was so tough and good in all aspects. The defensive and offensive moves was quite impressive. He had 2 minutes and 3 seconds left to finish the game while im terribly running out of time. Maybe, he was too confident to defeat me because I only have 3 seconds left but still manage to defeat him with my horse and queen in two more moves in 3 seconds left. The best move is the presence of mind. I defeated and won the game by checkmating him in 6 milliseconds time remaining.

Psalm 91

Ps 9191:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.KJV

It's my iPOD's 3rd Birthday

I would like to share you about the gadgets I have for 3 years now, my Apple iPODs shuffle. I got these two iPODs for free when I worked as a sales/technical support. These iPODs were given to me by my supplier as promotional gifts. Won't you believe me? I got these for free because I sold laptops, desktops, licensed software and thumb drives to one of my regular clients. My iPODs now are still working with boombastic and impressive sounds. I gave the other iPOD to my luckiest and closest friend of mine.
