in this troubled times, its refreshing to know that some people still has the capacity to share:

from migs:

The Smart GPRS gateway sends these:

X-Nokia-msisdn: 63918xxxxxxx, 63918xxxxxxx
X-Nokia-imsi: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
X-Nokia-gateway-id: NWG/4.0/Build64

and from mark:

...while globe use cookies :)

if (isset($_COOKIE['User-Identity-Forward-msisdn'])) {
$x = $_COOKIE['User-Identity-Forward-msisdn'];
for($cell='', $i=1; $i<=strlen($x); $i+=2)
$cell .= $x{$i};

it seems you can get the msisdn of the browsing phone! sweet! hooray for mailling lists :D

now, the next question would be sun. hmmnn... time to buy a sun prepaid sim...

yesterday the jeepneys and busses started implementing the 2 pesos fare increase, and the extended VAT issue is still quite fresh. the government is testing the patience of the Filipino people.

ineluctable? but it just seems too soon.

and here is my own shotcode, can you guess where it will take you? ;-)

independently mobile! interesting! should be handy if i started marketing mobileindie? could also be used for bar code hungry apps.

hmmnnn... this could mark hotspots! you do the shotcode thing and viola you are given a username and a password. plenty of ideas you can throw in there. yeah, you can do this via sms. *sigh* why not just put up a sign that tells text whatever_keyword to access_code. but, gasp! it requires an access code, {...}.

lets just do the funk, the first day funk...

itaas ang kamay at iwagayway. if you don't know the answer, eh di lagot.

lets do the funk :D

Boing Boing: Everything Bad is Good for You: How TV and games make us smarter... hmmn... wish i could find one at the local bookstore...

the last time i had read a real book (and i haven't even finished reading it yet), as opposed to an ebook was a book entitled "How to discipline a child without shouting and spanking". boy! you can't even begin to imagine the weird look on people's faces on the MRT when they saw me reading it. now that was disorienting.
