10 things weird about you

I don't really know what constitutes 'weird' for everyone, but Din (i lab this gurl) tagged me (this sounds sooooooooo 2004) so here goes:

Instructions: A person who gets tagged must write in his or her blog ten weird things or habits or little known facts about himself or herself. He or she should also state this rule clearly. At the end, he or she should tag six other people, except the one who tagged him or her.

1. I am OC about drinking water. Nanlilimahid na sa dumi ang bahay, ok lang, pero di pwedeng konti na lang ang tubig.

2. My mother enrolled me on piano lessons when I was in Grade 1. I lasted two lessons. I bugged my father to buy me a guitar in highschool to be in a band. I ended up as 'band manager'. Some people at the worship team at church actually have to pause in their singing and give extra effort to mind their tones because my singing 'influences' their voices. Nevertheless, in my dreams, I remain a rockstar.

3. I believe I have powers. basta.

4. Girl-junkie ako nung highschool. Agnostic nung college. Kristiyano ngayon.

5. I have PC games that make me sleep - as in naka-upo ako sa harap ng computer, holding the mouse, snoring. I love them.

6. I HATE RATS. George Orwell's 1984 made me this way.

7. It's so 90s, pero nagbabaligtad ako nang salita. tihak atnak, tihak as pasuu-gap. my friends have to translate on the fly.

8. I don't fix my bag, my table, my room, my house -- but I can't leave my bed unmade after waking up. First thing to do yan. ever.

9. Sa sobrang kulit ko nung bata ako, lahat nang pwedeng pagkulungan, kinulong na ako. Sa banyo, sa kwarto, sa closet, sa kulungan nang manok. 5 minutes lang naman.

10. Lahat ng girlfriends ko nung highschool -- even the ones na sobra sobrang gusto ko at pamatay na panliligaw ang ginawa ko -- ako ang nakipag-break.

I tag Leah, Ida, Bebelene, Pareng Jorge, G!, John. Mag-post kayo mga kolokoy! :p

Firefox - quickened

Found these great tips at

Type about:config in the address bar do the things below:

1. Fetch only pages that you click
In the about:config list, find the key that says network.prefetch-next. It should be set to TRUE. Double click it, and it will turn to false.

2. Limit the RAM usage
Select browser.cache.memory.capacity and adjust the value depending on the amount of RAM memory you have installed. For RAM sizes between 512MB and 1GB, start with 15000. For RAM sizes between 128MB and 512M, try 5000, and you will be happy of the result.

3. Reducing the RAM usage even more when Firefox gets minimized
Right click your about:config page, select New and click Boolean. A box will appear and you will have to enter config.trim_on_minimize as value. The boolean value should be set to TRUE.

4. Make pages load faster
Search for the key that says network.http.pipelining and set it to TRUE. You may alter the key below (network.http.pipelining.maxrequests) and change it into a higher value - 10 for example.
