One Last Time

One Last Time
Lyrics: James LaBrie
Music: Dream Theater


Nicholas:
It doesn't make any sense
This tragic ending
In spite of the evidence
There's something still missing

Heard some of the rumors told
A taste of one's wealth
Did Victoria wound his soul?
Did she bid him farewell?


Victoria:
One last time
We'll lay down today
One last time
Until we fade away
One last time
We'll lay down today
One last time
We slowly fade away


Nicholas:
Here I am inside his home
It holds the many clues
To my suspicions
 

And as I'm standing here right now
I've finally shown what I have always known

Coincidence I can't believe
As my childhood dreams slowly come true

Are these her memories
Awakened through my eyes
This house has brought back to life

 
An open door
I walk on through
Into his bedroom

Feeling as cold as outside
The walls disappear
 

To some woman who's screaming
A man pleads forgiveness
His words I cannot hear

Monthly Geeky Vol 8: What to do when you buy or acquire a BlackBerry Storm?

0 comments
Continuing my saga of the BlackBerry Storm and motivated by the increasing demands for help and because I know some friends who bought the Storm and approached me for help, I decided to give them the steps to take (and consider) when it acquires or intends to acquire a Storm.
Many have heard and read about my last item on the Storm , and is as stated in the commentary, not just unlock it and now you must take steps to set the phone to work optimally.

It happens that the Storm was actually being designed for a tremendous response to T-Mobile G1 (Google / HTC), iPhone (Apple) and Pre Palm (Palm), was given exclusively to Verizon Wireless in America. What distinguishes this is that design hardware / software is extremely attached to the Verizon network so much so that for example, I can not just send the books services for T-Mobile, because the Storm will always be waiting for response from Verizon. Then, where each company in Puerto Rico.

NOTE: DO NOT BEEN TESTED WITH THE STORM 2. It assumes that the phone is unlocked. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE IF SOMETHING BAD HAPPENS, NOT GUARANTEED TO WORK 100% AND IS STILL BEING IN THAT NETWORKS 3G STORM JUST TO GET TO THE EDGE (CAPS). USE THIS TUTORIAL AT YOUR OWN RISK AND FOLLOW THE STEPS CAREFULLY.
AT & T

  1. Download the Book Services .
  2. Upgrade your BlackBerry OS on your computer (Remember to delete the vendor.xml), my recommendation of not less than 4.7 and no more the first release of 5.0, has been known that the more up coming to the Verizon OS is becoming less friendly GSM providers other than Verizon.
  3. Sign in to My Computer and into the folder C: Program Files MotionSharedLoader In FilesResearch FilesCommon .... Java
  4. Copy and Delete ONLY AND ONLY THE FILE net_rm_bb_browser_daemon (Here we do is leave the original browser without installing yet, so there is no conflict with the Book Services), creates a new folder and inside this new folder, right click - paste. Close the window.
  5. Connect the BlackBerry Storm (with SIM position) and turn on the Desktop Manager, a window will confirm whether the module is removed, confirm or give it to finish. If it does not automatically go to ADD / REMOVE APPS and return to the homepage.
  6. Back to ADD / REMOVE APPS and hit Restore, Advance.
  7. I will list and then going to find out where the services grabastes book and what you add to the list of components of the phone. Minimízalo after returning to the main page, do not close yet.
  8. Return to C: Program Files MotionSharedLoader In FilesResearch FilesCommon .... Net_rm_bb_browser_daemon Java and returns from where he had taken at first. Close the window.
  9. In her DM Application Loader opens again, Add / Remove and see that it is confirmed that the module is isntalando.
  10. DM Close and disconnect the Storm.
  11. Enter the AT & T BIS and re-send the service book to your number.
  12. Enter Options-Advanced Options-TCP, it is assumed that: APN: wap.cingular | User: wap@cingulargprs.com | pass: cingular1
  13. If you leave the phone on the main screen that needs to be activated, make and calls # # 000000, record your number with AT & T.
  14. Finally, enjoy.


T-Mobile
  1. Download the Book Services .
  2. Upgrade your BlackBerry OS on your computer (Remember to delete the vendor.xml), my recommendation is not less than 4.7 and no more than the first release of 5.0, has been known that the more up coming to the Verizon OS is becoming less friendly to GSM providers other than Verizon.
  3. Sign in to My Computer and into the folder C: Program Files MotionSharedLoader In FilesResearch FilesCommon .... Java
  4. Copy and Delete ONLY AND ONLY THE FILE net_rm_bb_browser_daemon (Here we do is leave the original browser without installing yet, so there is no conflict with the Book Services), creates a new folder and inside this new folder, right click - paste. Close the window.
  5. Connect the BlackBerry Storm (with SIM position) and turn on the Desktop Manager, a window will confirm whether the module is removed, confirm or give it to finish. If it does not automatically go to ADD / REMOVE APPS and return to the home page.
  6. Back to ADD / REMOVE APPS and hit Restore, Advance.
  7. I will list and then going to find out where the services grabastes book and what you add to the list of components of the phone. Minimizalo after returning to the main page, do not close yet.
  8. Return to C:In FilesResearch FilesCommon MotionSharedLoader Program Files .... Net_rm_bb_browser_daemon Java and returns from where he had taken at first. Close the window.
  9. In her DM Application Loader opens again, Add / Remove and see that it is confirmed that the module is isntalando.
  10. DM Close and disconnect the Storm.
  11. Enter the T-Mobile BIS and re-send the service book to your number.
  12. Enter Options-Advanced Options-TCP, it is assumed that: APN: wap.voicestream.com or epc.tmobile.com | User: [White] | pass: [White]
  13. If you leave the phone on the main screen that needs to be activated, dial # # 000000 and calls, record your number to T-Mobile.
  14. Enjoy.
In the case of ClaroPR, still continue to work with this solution with the supplier, pending.

I recommend that they should lower their Opera Mini web browser, if they notice that the BlackBerry browser does not connect well.

Finally, unfortunately still the Storm is CDMA and cleaner than you have the ESN, we stated that, at least here in Puerto Rico, Sprint, Open Mobile & Centennial has taken the policy of not accepting phones than Sprint them in particular, obviously it would be good dialogue with them, but no hope guaranteed.
Enjoy.

Trapped Under Ice

0 comments

Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett

 

I don't know how to live through this hell
Woken up, I'm still locked in this shell
Frozen soul, frozen down to the core
Break the ice, I can't take anymore

Freezing
Can't move at all
Screaming
Can't hear my call
I am dying to live
Cry out
I'm trapped under ice

Crystallized, as I lay here and rest
Eyes of glass stare directly at death
From deep sleep I have broken away
No one knows, no one hears what I say

Freezing
Can't move at all
Screaming
Can't hear my call
I am dying to live
Cry out
I'm trapped under ice

(Scream!) from my soul
(Fate!) mystified
(Hell!) forever more

No release from my cryonic state
What is this? I've been stricken by fate
Wrapped up tight, cannot move, can't break free
Hand of doom has a tight grip on me

Freezing
Can't move at all
Screaming
Can't hear my call
I am dying to live
Cry out
I'm trapped under ice

I’ll Never Fall In Love Again

I’ll Never Fall In Love Again

Lyrics – James LaBrie/Rich Chycki

 

You'll never see the tears I cry
You'll never feel my heart in pain
You'll never know the reasons why
I'll never fall in love again

You can stare into men’s eyes
And give them love that's a pack of lies
You're out on the streets again and alone, whoa

I wanna say I love you
But you don't really care
Pull the knife out from my back
Who said that love was fair?

You'll never see the tears I cry
You'll never feel my heart in pain
You'll never know the reasons why
I'll never fall in love again

I'm sleeping all alone tonight
No time to bleed, no time to fight
I built a wall around my heart, whoa

It's sad when no one loves you
Is that so hard to bear?
A life that's lost to loneliness
Who said that love was fair?

You'll never see the tears I cry
You'll never feel my heart in pain
You'll never know the reasons why
I'll never fall in love again

You'll never see the tears I cry
You'll never feel my heart in pain
You'll never know the reasons why
I'll never fall in love again

You'll never see the tears I cry
You'll never feel my heart in pain
You'll never know the reasons why
I'll never fall in love again

You'll never see the tears I cry
You'll never feel my heart in pain
You'll never know the reasons why
I'll never fall in love again

Monthly Geeky Vol. 7: Apple iPhone 4 review

0 comments

Today we are reviewing Apple’s newest attempt to be a clear competition to both BlackBerry and Android.

Thanks to Alejandro Correa for allowing me to use his iPhone 4 for this review

Meet iPhone 4

IMG00010-20100702-2016 IMG00011-20100702-2016

iPhone 4, like the name says, it is the fourth, update release of the iPhone family released by Apple and distributed in America by AT&T. The one of the things that try to be different from other alternatives, as well its predecessors is that you can have video-conferencing through live feeds. The phone also comes with the 4th version of the proprietary iOS 4, which will enable (and about bloody time, but not as I expected it) multi-tasking and folders organizing system. The hardware has been upgraded as well with an APPLE A4 Processor and 512MB RAM with the common options to buy it with certain memory capacity for photos, music and videos.

 

First impressions

At first, the device’s new design will take time to get used to it. I am a partial user of iPod Touch, which is supposed to be almost similar to the iPhone counter part. The design looks good for a new look approach. I can’t say for sure how much wear the housing can tolerate. The pre-attached from factory, plastic sticker was still on and I am not the kind of the person to try that. Visually the OS was still the same concept since the first iPhone’s introduction to the world. Basically in this part, Apple needs to update a bit. Not much changes virtually on overall. I would love to see if any future OS will have a GUI changes.

 

Testing 1…Multi-tasking

A quick performed multi-tasking test was done. For the geeky-at-learning, we refer multi-tasking as a hardware ability to run more that one program at the time. Good example is talking with your girlfriend by messenger, posting your mind on Facebook and redacting your homework in a Word Processor program, all at the same time. The biggest criticizing that iPhone has was tha lack of multi-tasking. Yes I will compare it with my trusty BlackBerry since the 2nd incarnation of BlackBerry as a Smartphone device alternative to Palm (at the time the top of his game), it was know the capacity of having email pushed as the same time you were answering phone calls, later on, the introductions of apps, which clearly marks the capacity of BlackBerry’s equipment for Multi-Tasking. Before you needed apps to do this on the iPhone, now Apple finally adds these features, but with an upset for me. Heavily driven apps for multi-tasking are yet to be releases, and the test I began, was just for 4 separate spaces for apps to be running “paused on background while using one active”. That’s a poor choice for a guy that like to download while chatting, meanwhile checking Twitter.

 

Testing 2…Folder Handling

Another new concept on the 4th version of the iOS 4 is that now have the options of folders organization. I was thrilled, until I tried. An insult really, does Apple think we are so dump in technology? To simple to me having me feeling like I am in first grade…

Testing 3…Camera

I am going to say it for the record…I must say that the camera ain’t that bad, not only because it was competing with a BlackBerry Curve 8520, a economical (keyword) release from RIM for BlackBerry customers, but having a camera that really capture good photos, even in the most uncomfortable place to do this kind of things, my work. The camera has a 5 megapixel, still getting his ass kick by the 8 megapixel camera of HTC’s EVO 4G.

AND MY FINAL WORD ON IPHONE 4…
