Happy New Year from Atma Xplorer
It’s quite a late greeting as the new year has already pass throughout the globe but I’ve got one good reason to post this late. I went out to watch the first sunrise of the year! Too bad I didn’t bring my cam since I was afraid of it getting wet (what cam? we’ll get to that in a bit) but hey, at least we’re still here.
Ake Ome to everyone! (Akemashite Omedetou -> Happy New year in Japanese) :D. Now on with the mandatory, first day of the yer post.
So what’s new for the year?
Aside from the usual conundrum of PSP-related stuff like the latest CFW or the latest free PSP games (and the latest free dsi games for DSI users), there’s photography, anime, fanboyism stuff and all stuff geeky. If you’ve noticed, the recent trend of posts for Atma Xplorer has trickled compared to my earlier posting frequency (I peaked at once every two days). That’s because I’ve been quite busy managing several blogs (personal and otherwise), some money making gigs (one with megaupload, thanks to bhatugan.com’s dcoyy for helping me with that :D), a secret project that I’m still working on the foundations of and work (we’ve shifted our web dev team to RoR yay!).
As of now, I’ll be running just a handful of blogs (downsized for quality and other reasons…. thanks a lot john /sarc) to keep focus on post frequency/quality and make time for my other activities like gaming (yay for our PS3, Xbox and wii though our first wii died earlier last year so I’ll be getting a new one by the end of the month), field shoots (on location photography if you’re not familiar with the term) and freelancing gigs (courtesy of my still secret project :D). So yeah, busy busy, busy!
If you’re wondering what’ll be the break down of post topics per blog:
Atma Xplorer – Gaming, Anime, Photography, Random yet interesting stuff. I may even start running contests (with prizes from Play-Asia or even cold hard cash) but those plans are still under wrap for now
Techie Xplorer – From the ashes of Pinoy Tech Guy (my earlier attempt at a tech-blog), Techie Xplorer is just another tech-related blog. You’ll find gadgets (and hopefully reviews soon), tips and tricks and other geeky stuff that don’t fall into Atma Xplorer’s plethora of categories.
sylv3rblade.com – currently it’s just a personal blog (an empty one at that) so I’ll be posting stuff that comes out to mind
The secret project – is currently a photography, face-painting and web development gig. I’ll be posting more info after the public launch but for now, that’s the only information I can give out 😀
I’ve been busy for that last few months of 2009 so here’s an x’mas present for myself:
Yep, that’s a D90 kit. 😀
I know, I know. I was supposed to get it last year but due to several complications, I was able to get one just now. I’m still playing with it and thus far, I can safely that it’s quite a level up compared to my older D40 (my head is still buried reading the thick manual and kenrockwell’s D90 manual). I’ll be posting a review on Techie Xplorer but for now, I’ll be tinkering and testing it out until I get the feel of it. If you’re curious, I got my D90 from kimstore! The kit (D90 body + Nikkor 18-105mm VR lens + LCD cover) is currently at Php 53,000. They even threw in a free 8GB SD card :D.
Well that’s all for now. I was supposed to write a year end report but I guess I got carried away :D. Will be posting a few interesting morsels in a bit, stay tuned via Atma Xplorer’s feeds.Tags: Atma Xplorer, D90, Techie Xplorer
