Are you a Brogrammer or a Programmer?

So I was listening to Windows Weekly and heard Mary Joe Foley, from Cnet, mention the word Brogrammer. Hmmm never heard that before!

What is a Brogrammer?

A simple search sent me to the UrbanDictionary.com and according to this site, a Brogrammer is:

A programmer who breaks the usual expectations of quiet nerdiness and opts instead for the usual trappings of a frat-boy: popped collars, bad beer, and calling everybody “bro”. Despised by everyone, especially other programmers.

I continued my search, and guess what I found.. Continue reading

Facebook Cover Photo & Profile Pic Dimensions

So this is a quick post, but I’m always forgetting the exact sizes for Facebook’s Cover Photo and Profile Pictures.

 

Cover Photo Dimensions

This is easy, one size and remains the same. Cover Photo dimensions are 850 by 315 pixels.

 

Profile Pic Dimensions

The Profile Pic must be 200 by 200 pixels, with the visible area being 176 by 176 pixels. When you view your profile pic on Facebook, it is viewed as 125 by 125 pixels.

SMS Viewer for Android

Last Sunday I’ve been using Android all day long, and loved it. My girlfriend has an HTC Wildfire which was very slow, even to write a simple message it would take ages. So I’ve started the rooting and install procedure to install Froyo (Android v2.3) using Cyanogenmod 7, but I’ll post the update procedure in a future post along with the problems to root it!

Anyhow, some of the problems of slowlyness was attributed to the large amount of messages that there were stored on the mobile, but you don’t wanna delete them. So we took a backup of her SMSs using SMS Backup and Restore, which is a really good app at what it does. After the update, you could either restore all the messages back to the phone or start clean.

But what about my SMSs? Continue reading

Published My Facebook Timeline

And just like that, I finally published my Facebook Timeline.. been thinking to do it for a while, and finally on the 5th of May (05/05) at exactly 5:05 PM, I published my timeline.. hehe wanted to make it special lol.

So why have I been holding out?

At first I didn’t like the fact that anyone can go through my timeline and watch and read what I did during the past years. You could have done that in the Pre-timeline facebook, but you would have to click lots of “Load More…” buttons to arrive at least at the beginning of the current year. Continue reading

I Love Slow Internet

NO I DON’T! By checking www.speedtest.net, I found that from the promised 12 Mbps internet connection, I was only getting 1.2Mbps. What should I do next?

First check with your ISP

They “found out” that I was only getting 8Mbps, Oh My, and in a matter of 2 mins, they “upgraded” me “again” to 12Mbps, that I payed for! So if I hadn’t contacted them, I would be getting much lower speeds!! At least one thing was solved. But it still wasn’t going over the 1.2Mbps mark, and sometimes it was going even lower.

Next up, the Router

I bought a Belkin Modem Router, model number: F5D8635-4v1, never had problems, at least which I noticed. Continue reading
