Remembering Hermano Puli

If Hermano Puli was alive today he would be branded as a religious fanatic and probably be dragged to a mental institution and kept there, I believe a former president of this republic did this to a couple of people.

Herman Puli aka Apolinario Dela Cruz led the Confradia de San Jose which was born out of his desire to be a cleric which was disallowed because he was not Spanish.

Because of his teaching his movement was persecuted then massacred.

Anyway he might have been crazy or unstable but he was our crazy.

Tayabas and Lucban and probably the rest of Quezon Province will celebrate on November 4 to remember him.

Waiting for NetBeans 6.5

I have to admit I am not one of the old styles coders who uses a text editor or emacs to edit java source code since I am not that fluent in Java. Anyway I use Netbeans as my IDE most of the time and Eclipse when I need to do somethings that are very hard to do in NetBeans.

I am both excited and apprehensive. Excited since it has features personally I think is a must such as the support for grails and groovy without going to the trouble of trying to get a plugin to run. Apprehensive since the hardware requirements might make me upgrade my existing computers.

I will have to wait for the official release.

I’m a New Fan of an Artist

I found an artist in youtube doing a cover of “Enter Sandman” a heavy metal song sung by Metallica.

Mr. James Munroe did a very good cover and converted the heavy metal classic into a folk song. Kudos man

Anyway just listen and appreciate the music. For more info just visit his site at www.jamesmunroe.ca (OMG he is a Canadian)

Amusing how Tayabasin reacts to the topic. Hope this does not escalate to a flame war. 🙂
