Save Animaniacs Blog
Sunday, 9 August 2009

So, if you where wondering why I was not blogging since the passing of the late Michael Jackson, is not that I was not interested in the blog.  It just happened that my new or refurbished PC was having some problems with the Qumana Blogger software, which was working perfectly fine in the older PC.  But I have no idea of what happened, if there is a problem with the interface and because I was so busy with other things, I took a long long break on the blog.  However, I will try to bring the blog up to date, but I apologize if you did not find my blog up to date.  In the meantime, I will use the Tripod's interface until I get a desktop blogger.  Also, if you like to read my Twitter, please go to

Michael Jackson (1958-2009) You always be in our hearts!

Just wishing you where here Michael.....

SLAPPY: "Why good people has to leave, while the bad guys are still hanging around us?  I don't get it!"

RITA: "I think is going to rain!" (With teary eyes from" Smitten with Kittens")

RUNT: "It's so sad!  Definitively, definitively sad!"

I guess, there is no way to describe what the whole universe is feeling right now, but I know deep inside that Michael Jackson, will always be in our hearts and minds.

Praying for Michael Jackson

Right now, I'm in state of shock, just finding out the news that singer Michael Jackson is not doing well.  Last I heard, he was sended to the UCLA Hospital, with a possible cardiac arrest.  It is not yet known his health status, but I can say that it is in God's hands and no matter the outcome, Michael will always be in our hearts forever.  Just pray for him.

Microsoft doing empty promises?

Why is software giant Microsoft making empty promises? So, it was the big flop, when Microsoft announced the Windows Vista Operating System for PCs. However, I did not upgraded my old PC to Vista, since it is outdated for that platform. While I stuck to XP, millions of users that relied on Vista, noted the many empty features that Microsoft promised in the first place. What was the Aero Screen feature about? Crashing! Incompatibility issues? You bet! How to run a Windows 98 program in Vista? That's to anyone's best guess! I could spend days trying to find the answer to Microsoft's empty promises!

But wait! The empty promises does not end! Turns out that Microsoft, has sent pink slips to as much as 5000 employees. But, the fired workers where not from the software development area, but the games division area, mostly known as "Games for PC" unit or ACES Studios. It looks like Microsoft is no longer thinking on developing PC platform games and would prefer to invest time and money on the X-BOX and WII platform games, which would make sense for the software giant.

So, as sadly as it sounds, Microsoft has put a brake to the ever popular Flight Simulator game and for the 3rd time in 6+ years, my favorite game Train Simulator has been delayed or canceled! I have been waiting for the sequel to the 2001 MSTS for nearly 8 years and Microsoft keeps promising and promising the sequel, but then... POOF! The game is NO GO! What is Microsoft doing? I think the software giant is loosing credibility on my part! Well, I will still waiting for the day (If it ever comes!) when the long delayed Train Simulator will see the dawn of the day!

There goes.... Empty promises! Why is Microsoft delaying or canceling Train Simulator 2, for the 3rd time in 6+ years?

DTV delayed?

Bear with me folks! If you thought you where ready for the Digital TV or DTV transition on February 17, 2009.... Guess again!

Comes word that incoming President Barack Obama is asking the Congress to delay or postpone the Digital TV transition date of 2/17/09. The reason, lack of money to help the TV viewers to acquire or purchase the Digital to Analog TV converter, or better known as the $40 dollars coupon for a Digital TV upgrade from Analog.

So, what this means to you, who relies on a TV without Cable or Satellite, to receive TV programs from all the local channels? If you have a DTV set, means that you bought a new TV, which can receive both Digital and Analog channels, you don't need the Converter Box. If you have an older TV set that was bought prior to March 2007, or you bought a TV, but the seller told you that after 2009, the TV will not take Analog channels and you needed a converter or Cable TV to get the channels, you need to pay attention to the above matter.

The US Congress, when setting up the converter coupon or $40 dollars coupon for the DTV converters, it was agreed that a number of coupons would be distributed. Now, it turns out that lots of people has requested coupons, but there are more people asking for TV converter coupons, than money set aside to pay the coupons.

So, if you took a coupon for the DTV converter, you receive it and bought the converter, you are fine. If you received the coupon, but did not purchased the converter, sorry, but you loose the coupon, so the value of the coupon will be taken back by the Federal program and another coupon will be issue to the person that is waiting to receive a $40 dollars coupon.

The way it was set up the program, is now in question. Since there is 1 month away from the February 17 date, there may be more people waiting for a coupon to shown up on their mailbox. If you make an application for the coupon today, then the program will place you on a waiting list that could take as much as 2 or even 3 months to receive a coupon.

So, what is the response from the Federal Government? If you can't wait for the coupon, then go and buy the Digital Converter, which will cost you some $50 dollars at Wal-Mart. Other than that, get a new TV set, which would cost some $149.00. It may still possible to get a $99 dollars TV before the February 17 date. But, if you are not willing to wait, you may want to call the Cable TV or Satellite provider, since they may be forced to provide a cheaper limited Cable TV service, which may cost some $15 dollars per month (taxes may add up!). Still confused? This is why, the new President wants to delay the DTV, for at least a while.

I'm not worry, since I live in a Bright House.... Are you taking SpongeBob away?
