Samsung only offers the Exynos variant of its flagship smartphones in the Philippines. That’s why it’s great to know there are stores in Greenhills that make the SnapDragon variants available to local consumers.
The telco accelerates 5G technology in key cities of Visayas and Mindanao. This includes Bacolod, Boracay, Iloilo, Talisay, Lapu-Lapu, Cordova, Minglanilla, and Cebu City in the Visayas. For Mindanao, it has Davao City and Cagayan De Oro.
Seriously, though, is there anybody out there who’s excited about 5G?
For mobile data, 4G is fast enough for me. Otherwise, there’s the fixed-line internet network wi-fi I can always fall back to in times of need. What we need as Filipinos is better coverage and reliable and steady mobile internet connection.
If my next phone offers 5G connectivity, well and good, at least I’d be kinda future-proof. But I’m not rushing to the nearest Smart or Globe store to grab the latest 5G phone.
With the absence of CPanel, managing your website on Google Cloud Platform is a bit tricky. Nevertheless, you’ll find that an FTP or SFTP connection to your web server will come in handy especially when you have plugins and PHP functions that break your WordPress website.
Here is the tutorial I followed and that worked for my case in connecting Filezilla on my desktop PC to my Google Cloud Platform web/file server:
Once you’re connected, you can find your WordPress installation in: /opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/htdocs. This location is valid if you installed WordPress via the WordPress Certified by Bitnami and Automattic software from the GCP Marketplace.
Filezilla and Putty Key Generator are safe applications if you downloaded them from valid websites.
This comparison is close to my heart for I’m about to renew my phone this year.
In 2017, I passed up on the iPhone 8/8 Plus/X and went for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 instead, primarily because of the price. Never regretted it. The Android of recent years is leaps ahead of its predecessors of the early 2010’s. Gone are the days of overheating Samsung Galaxy S2.
I’ve just finished migrating my blog from WordPress.com to Google Cloud Platform. Along this process, I needed to do some housekeeping, and check for broken links. Thus, the Broken Link Checker plugin.
I was particularly interested in intra-site links especially images that might have been broken through the years. But I was greeted as well by broken external links, hundreds of them:
Websites, blogs, and pages that are relevant at that time, but eventually faded into obscurity. Those are the websites that Deuts.NET survived. If you look at the sidebar, you’ll see the long list of archive links. That makes up 14 and a half years of Deuts.NET. Looking forward to 14 more years to come.
Security Bank may have been one of those generous Philippine banks who graciously waived fees for InstaPay transactions until at least the year 2020 ends, in order to accommodate seamless and contactless interbank fund transfers during this pandemic period.
