MGS: Costa Rica


Its always nice to see and compare the portrayal of my country in fiction by people who've never been there. Including our ever-victorious air force, and dangers.

Now we got Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker to join the fad.

Work to do

It sounds so easy when they just summarize it like that :(


Connection fail

Had a Ulduar25 raid last night, everyone did well except me me :(

On EVERY boss I had connection issues and the game kicked me out, to come just in time to ninja loot the drops :(

Didn't like it...

When to quit

Some people just don't know when to do it, right?

All he had to do was to stay in a hotel suite for a couple of more months until the elections. But he had to make a show-off...

Geez, he should consider himself lucky that they were stupid enough to kick him out in the stupid way they did.

Just a warm up

It always amuses me that the biggest praise for my work comes for the imagination, while the truth is that there's not a single line in all my work that does not have a basis in reality. The problem is that Caribbean reality resembles the wildest imagination.

Can you imagine a president doing warm ups of himself crossing the border back to his country? Well, it happened in real life.

Installed and tried out vent for WoW.

So far so good, a little bit hard to configure (had to follow my guild's Vent for Dummies), but once you get it to work the audio quality is good. Just need to try it out at my lame connection at my parent's.

Good old times

Ah... its good to be young... I remember when I was your level, 75, and got my first level 80 gear (which at that time was the level cap).

There I was, my first time in Drak'Tharon Keep with a random group of people having the usual problems to start the instace: the server was full and we had to wait to enter, some people had to be summoned twice, some went AFK while we tried to get inside, and we had to wait for them...

In those days it was VERY common for me to get into random instance groups using the LFG and going to places I didn't know where they were. (Good old times)

Once we FINALLY started the instance, our first mobs killed or wiped us! I was already starting to worry how we would manage to even do the first boss like that! Was it my fault? (I was the healer which I don't usually like)

And then the bomb came! Everyone but a Blood Elf hunter died, and he looted a rare item from a mob while the rest spirit released!

I was about to leave the group because I was tired of wiping and that, but since I don't usually do it without analyzing what was going wrong, it turned out the item was NOT
bind on pick up so, we rolled and I won it (with a 99 lol!)! I still wasn't able to use it but it was my first level 80 item! What item was it? No idea lol, I didn't write it down, I just remember it was a spellcaster cloak with a red socket.

And the instance itself? Well, we did finish it, it turns out that our Dork Knight tank forgot to put Frost Presence! Jeez! Fucking n00b!

Next time I'll tell you about the shaman who said me and the other druid were ninjas because we needed cloth items. Now go out there kids and farm Azshara, I gotta drink my prune juice.

La verdad del golpe tecnico en Honduras

(Palabras de un amigo hondureño de hace años)

Hermanos latinoamericanos:

Lo de honduras no fue un golpe de estado, ya que los tres poderres que nos han gobernado desde 1982 siguen vigentes.

Poder Judicial (Suprema Corte de Justicia)
Esta mantiene aun los mismos magistrado y jueces que fungian durante el reinado de desacatos, violaciones a las leyes, fallos juridicos y a la misma sagrada constitucion de la republica por parte de Manuel Zelaya Rosales.

Poder Legislativo (Honorabnle congreso nacional)
Siguen rigiendo los mismos diputados que fueron electos por el pueblo para gobernar al pueblo, bajo el juramento de proteger, respetar y hacer que se respete la constitucion de la republica.

Poder Ejecutivo (Presidencia de la republica y gabinete de gobierno)
Modificado en su totalidad debido a la expulsion pacifica del ex-presidente Manuel Zelaya Rosales

Estos tres poderes aun siguen vigentes, aun vivimos en democracia, el tribunal supremo electoral ha convocado a elecciones generales este 29 de Noviembre.

Los caprichos y mentiras de Zelaya.

Zelaya venia con intenciones de perpetuerse en el poder, ideas engendradas por el dictador venezolano Hugo Chavez Frias, quien, con dineros del pueblo de Venezuela financiaba las campañas anti-copnstitucionales de Zelaya.

Sin ser el autorizado por las leyes de nuestro pais, convocó a una ¨encuesta de opinion popular¨ la viene convocando desde hace mas de ocho meses, pero jamas publico en el diario oficial la Gazeta el decreto de ley para oficializar dicha ¨encuesta¨

Los tribunales de Honduras le advirtieron de la ilegalidad de sus actos, pero al el le valio un comino la ley de honduras, y, muy al estilo de Chavez, quiso sobrepasar nuestras leyes...

Nadie habia actuado, en su contra, porque somos un pais pacifico, no nos gusta la violencia, pero la gota que derramo el vaso fue la destitucion del jefe del estado mayor conjunto, o sea, el mero mero de las fuerzas militares del pais, ya que este se nego a acatar una orden ilegal.

La trampa de la famos ¨encuesta de opinion popular¨ fue descubierta hasta el pasado 25 de Junio, que es cuando se publica en el diario la Gazeta el decreto de ley con respecto a dicha encuesta, la cual, realmente era una autorizacion directa para instalar una asamblea nacional constituyente, y no la cuarta urna en las elecciones de noviembre proximo.

Eso, segun la constitucion de la republioca, es TRAICION A LA REPUBLICA, por lo que se ordeno, que el 28 de Junio fuera exiliado, para evitar un derramamiento de sangre innecesario en nuestro pais.

Pero su ambicion de poder, y la deuda con hugo chavez lo hizo difamarnos como pais, por lo que, ahora, nuestro poder judicial ha instruido a la fiscalia general de la republica gire orden de capruta contra Zelaya, y esta ha sido enviada a INTERPOL.

No todo ha sido tan positivo para nosotros los Hondureños, con lagrimas en mis ojos he visto como se ha destruido equipo de una radioemisora, y como manifestantes defensores de Zelaya fueron perseguidos, despues de que militares disolvieran su manifestacion, y estos fueronsacados de hospitales, heridos, donde recibian atencion medica, no debimos llegar a este extremo, pero para fortalecer nuestra democracia se ha empleado la fuerza.

Iremos a elecciones generales en noviembre, nuestro nuevo presidente entregara la presidencia el proximo 27 de enero, y a Zelaya no lo queremos aqui, si el regresa, lo mas seguro es que vaya preso, o que algun loco lo mate.




Y a todos aquellos que amenacen nuestra soberania les decimos:


Hice mencion de los pecados de Zelaya, pero no los enumere:

1) Se adjudico la frecuencia de canal 8, aun cuando un juzgado administrativo de lo contencioso fallo a favor del empresario y politico Elias Asfura, Haciendo Zelaya caso omiso del fallo revelandose contra una autoridad del pais.

2) Tenemos una pandemia con la gripe A H1N1, a la cual el no le ha prestado la mas minima atencion, mientras su misitro hablada de 81 casos oficiales en todo el pais, extraoficialmente se conocde, que solo el IHSS ha atendido mas de 250 casos en las ultimas 3 semanas, cosa que Zelaya oculto, y peor aun, no le dio la importancia necesaria

3) Nuestra red vial esta casi destruida, necesita de mantenimiento, pero el dijo que no habia presupuesto para repararla, pero si ha gastado los dineros del pùeblo en propaganda de radio y televion para promover una encuesta que al final era una convocatoria para una asamblea nacional conmstituyente

4) Tuvimos un terremotod de gran magnitud hace unas semanas atras, hay muchos damnificados y bordos de contencion de rios seriamente dañados, a el eso no le importo, no visito las comunidades afectas, y ni siquiera se pronuncio al respecto. Si los bordos colapsan se perderian muchos cultivos, lo que signigficaria que en los proximos meses, honduras comenzaria a sufrir de hambre por falta de alimentos

5) Tenia que presentar el presupuesto nacinal para el 2009 a mas tardar en septiembre del 2008, pero al 28 de Junio de 2009, cuando fue exiliado, maliciosamente aun no presentaba un presupuesto nacional para el año corriente, razon? estaba utilizando el dinero del pueblo, para fomentar su continuismo.

Esos puedo mencionar entre los 17 que existen, mas el de alta tracion al estado al intentar violentar nuestra constitucion al convocar, sin que le corresponda a el, a una asamblea nacional constituyente para crear una nueva constitucion, violando descaradamente el juramento que le hizo a la patria de OBEDECER la sagrada constitucion de la republica.

La alta traicion puede conllevar, segun el articulo 34 de nuestra constitucion, a la perdidda de su ciudadania hondureña., que creo es el siguiente paso a seguir por parte de nuestras autoridades.

Lamento que la cadena CNN haya dicho tantas mentiras, y se haya negado a entrevistar a los organizadores del comite paz y democracia, esparciendo mentiras a nivel internacional, y dando una mala imagen de que fue lo que realmente sucedio en nuestro pais.

Its really not funny organizing a party to do an instance, start the instance, complete most of the instance, loose your internet connection for 10 minutes for yet-unsolved reasons, and when you finally get back online, be told that the party has finished the instance (which includes getting the achievement for it, completing a quest, and loot) without you :(

The stuff nightmares are made out of

(My previous update was lame)

Written by Skibo the first:

Magic: the Gathering

Jace is your average high school student living in a small town when just before he's going to ask the most popular girl in school, he gets too worked up and finds himself in Egypt. He later learns that he is a planeswalker meaning he can teleport anywhere on Earth... and once to Mars as comic relief.

Years ago his grandfather and four others found a mystical stone in a Mayan ruin and when touched it broke apart into five peices, each with a diffrent color. Now Jace must collect all five stones and bring them back to the Mayan temple before the eclipse or else the world will end*. On his way he'll fight Chandra, the brash young hottie with a love of pyromania, Vess, a troubled girl who made a deal she can't back away from, Gaurruk, a hunter extreme with no morality when it comes to his prey, and Ajani, a young man who is learned the diffrence between vegence and justice.

But deep in the shadows lurks, Bolas. Jace's former friend and rival. He seeks the stone for his own power.

Will Jace be able to recover all five stones? Will Bolas suceed in destroying the world? You'll just have to tune into...

In the end Bolas does get the stones, turns into a dragon and Jace has to slay him with the legacy weapon.

Seeds fall anywhere

Thank you Captain Obvious

Heroes get killed rather quickly and the only people left to root for are the antagonist's who are most likeable

(Title taken from my friend Eid)

I'm SO tired of Eragon, not only is he a stupid moron who hasn't done anything to deserve everything that happens to him, but he gets the bonus of extended life and magical powers for doing nothing?

Murtagh instead... now THAT's a character I'd like to be the main guy of a series, and have a extended life.

War gene

And now you know what we need to do with the idiots.

Monday, March 30, 2009


1. Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow Do not walk beside me either. Just pretty much leave me alone.
2. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and leaky tire.
3. It's always darkest before dawn. So if you're going to steal your neighbor's newspaper, that's the time to do it.
4. Don't be irreplaceable. If you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.
5. Always remember that you're unique. Just like everyone else.
6. Never test the depth of the water with both feet.
7. If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of car payments.
8. Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
9. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day .
10. If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is probably not for you.

The Helping Hand
Deliberate Sociable Fun Veteran (DSFV)
Generous, helpful, kind...a few of many positive attributes people see in you, the Helping Hand. Nothing satisfies you more than helping your teammates or friends out in all the games that you play. You may even look to assist people in some cases if there is no one around asking for help. In fact, the enjoyment that you receive from helping people rivals that of solving a puzzle, winning a battle, or achieving a hard objective in a game.

Heavily social intensive games tend to be what you enjoy the most although you can probably find something to take pleasure in with most games. For instance, if you happen to find yourself in a competitive first person shooter, you'd probably take the support class. We recommend you stick to games (and crowds!) where people will appreciate you more; these include more casual gamers seeking fun and excitement from games rather than the serious competitive ones.

Razorfen Kraul

Another instance bites the dust. I'm actually considering doing it again to loot more equipment.

Long weekend

So much done...

-Almost got robbed by thieves after surviving the death encounter
-Got 2 of the Inheritance Cycle books

-Got a sig banner:

And the day hasn't finished yet.

IE8 = crap

I downloaded it to try it, and 15 minutes later it got stuck for 3 minutes and almost crashed.

Good Party

It is SO different when you have a balanced and hard working party to do an instance. I've been trying for almost a week to complete Wailing Caverns with no definite result, and last night in a simple group of 4, we completed Shadowfang Keep.

Cereal box

That's where some people seem to be getting their driver licenses these days...

On saturday night, a kid rammed into my brother's car, which was parked and had the hand break, and managed to turn it 90° into the road.

Now my brother's worried that his car will be declared wasted because the insurance won't cover a repair more expensive than the car itself.

Lunch quake

I don't know about you guys out there, but these 11:30 am quakes are my lunch-time alarm.

How long will this go on?

Loot Ninja

I was accused of being one, just because during my first dungeon raid everything happened so fast I took something and didn't have a chance to check it; in the end, I did like the item, and now wear it though.

Helicobacter pylori

So, today I had blood and breath samples taken to see if I got these little buggers...

Not that the test result will be conclusive in any aspect of my life, but at least I'll be able to tell if I have them or not.

Monday, March 09, 2009


Everything I did this weekend, everything that happened in the world is meaningless now.

There was a guy breaking trash bags on the street on the way to work today to eat other people's trash, and a guy camping in a bus stop when I went to lunch.

What is happening in this country?

Day 4

Still progressing on the quests and trying to choose talents and professions I want.

Now you can see my character here.

PS. I still got the same logging problems, updating BIOS and video codecs didn't work.

Thursday, March 05, 2009

Day 3

I still got the same problem with the game, and it seems that the solution is updating my BIOS.

Anyways, quests are getting harder now because the items I'm required to collect aren't dropped as common as before. I also got my first glimpse of a major city; the damned guys promoting their items for sale flood the general chat, gotta find the in-game option to ignore them.

Wednesday, March 04, 2009

Day 2

So, I still got the same login problems...

On the bright side, quests are starting to get more developed with more interesting objectives and storyline.

And I also got into my first party; it wasn't anything special, but it proved that there are n00bs everywhere... our warrior was an idiot who didn't follow the basic strategy of: spellcasters lure the mobs.

In other news, I want this!

Day 1

I arrived home very excited about FINALLY playing WoW, and to my surprise, the game started normally, but there was a problem seeing my character playing. I posted my problem in the official forums, but unfortunately the customer service person was already gone.

First of all, a game that is played 24/7 SHOULD have a 24/7 customer service!

Anyways, the game managed to fix itself somehow, and I managed to play.

The starting quests were the usual: kill harmless animals and collect items to report back. Only when I reached level 5 I was asked to kill intelligent warfaring beings, and to help another NPC.

Unlike ANY other 3D MMORPG I've played so far, the game NEVER lagged at all to me, which is a considerable plus, on the down side, I only saw 1 other player once riding his mount in the distance, and the dead bodies of 3 other players, which is a down... MMORPGs are not fun if there's no one online... maybe its because I'm in a starting zone, and only n00bs like me roam there...

Lok'tar ogar!

Finally today I will start WoW.

No idea if I'll ever see the sunlight again...

Have fun.

In the near future, we might see this very often:

I'm sure the "Lack of internet connectivity" is already needed.

More oxygen

This is the face of one of the stupidest persons that thankfully isn't wasting our oxygen anymore:

Lets hope that at least your stupidity serves as a example to others.

Something's wrong here

There's something seriously wrong when the video game based on a movie is more exciting than the movie...

Yet another mouth

Yesterday at around 9:20 pm Tiffany Picado Pérez was born, poor little kid, not only she got a polo name already, such a perfect chance to have PPP or PPPP as initials was wasted...

In other news, I found scientific proof that I'm defective and need to go get my money back.

Was it really necessary to put a naked teenager girl on the cover of an EXCELENT book?

Jeez, now I have to hide it from kids in the bus.

Nissa Revane

We don't know much about her, but keep the eye on the lookout.

Just a video I'm promoting (in Spanish, sorry):

Now you know why this invention won the 2008 Clodomiro Picado National Technology Award.

The price of good advertising

Due to a simple (yet very effective) marketing strategy we've implemented at the office, our phones haven't stopped ringing all day long, and as of this moment I've sent over 50 e-mails to people who have contacted us regarding our announcement.

I'm starting to hate effective marketing.

For those interested, you can subscribe now to WIPO's General Course on Intellectual Property.

Price of fame

Not even 30 minutes after the press conference finished, and our phones were already flooded with calls from the press looking for an interview with the 2008 National Technology Award winner, whose developed we protected and have encouraged ever since (not to mention that we signed him up in the competition).

Woe is us.

Goodbye Guantánamo

In a very surprising move in the world of politicias, Obamas has done something he promised in his campaing to do: order Guantánamo to be closed, and do something about the people locked there, innocent or not.

In other news, I might go to Honduras at the end of march to do a presentation, but it's still not official.

In spite of having a decent weight, a decent body fat percentage, and a decent body mass index, blood tests say that my triglycerides are a bit too high...

That means no more of things that I eat every single day for a while, and I gotta do more aerobics in the gym.

Tuesday, January 20, 2009

Yet more stupidity

Right when you thought gringos did something smart by electing Obama, they just keep confirming how fucking stupid they are.

In other news, I lost 3 kg since november.

Cashing in

Today I went to a INS agency to ask for my refunds thanks to Iberia's horrible and useless workmethods.

In 3 weeks I'll know how much money they want to give me.

Tuesday, January 13, 2009

Iberia is STILL bullshit

This time they made me stay 24 hours in Madrid, and lost my luggage for a day. And the worst part is that cashing in the compensation money is impossible from here.

Fucking jerks.

De vuelta al trabajo

Bueno... yo no, mis compañeros de oficina ya estan trabajando y algunos hasta ahora leen el blog de nuevo. Saludos a tod@s.

Sabado 18

Luego de unas dos horas en bus llegamos Rzhev, un pequeño pueblo de 60.000 personas donde probe montones de comida casera tipica rusa:

-VERDADERA ensalada rusa llamada olivje (que no se parecen en nada a lo que siempre han llamado ensalada rusa en mi pais)
-Estofado de papa que en realidad es un picadillo de papa
-Carne horneada
-Un queque en capas, algo similar a una torta chilena...
-Tomates rellenos
-Huevos rellenos
-Arenque en un abrigo de piel
-Salmon salado
-Ensalada de palitos de cangrejo (que en realidad no contienen cangrejo)
-Salchichas de jamon

Todo lo anterior acompañado de vino rojo y jugo de cereza.

Ademas, durante el camino pude ver las diferencias entre las ciudades y pueblos rusos: un pueblo no es mas que un grupo de antiguas pequeñas casas de madera (segun dicen carentes de agua caliente y servicios sanitarios “normales”) aparentemente identicas en las cuales habitan agricultores que cultivan y cosechan todo lo que pueden durante la primavera y verano y sobreviven el resto del año con sus ahorros y conservas (almacenadas en una bodega aparte) al invierno.

Hablando de conservas, aqui es lo mas normal del mundo prepararlas aunque no vivas en esas condiciones, son tradicionales y es normal poseer frascos y el equipo necesario para sellarlos en las casas.

Domingo 19

Luego de semejante lista de platillos del dia anterior, ya supondran como estaba mi estomago este dia, asi que no hay mucho que decir... regresamos a Tver sin contratiempos.

Lunes 20

Un pequeño paseo por Tver… me confundi anteriormente, este dia fue cuando visitamos la Flama Eterna y el Monumento a la Victoria…

En la noche nos preparamos para el viaje a Moscu.

Martes 21

Москва… que se puede decir acerca de la capital rusa y ciudad mas grande de Europa con incontables museos y areas famosas, el segundo metro mas transitado del mundo y la ciudad mas cara del mundo en estos momentos? Simplemente que toda una vida no basta para verlo todo...

Pero mejor empezamos por el principio, el tren hacia Moscu; el tren en si no tiene nada de especial, asientos en ambas direcciones con canastas sobre la cabeza para el equipaje y ganchos para los abrigos. Lo importante es la experiencia: mi primer avistamiento de las personas que aprovechan el invierno para caminar sobre los rios y lagos congelados para hacer un agujero sobre el hielo y sentarse a pescar y lo mas curioso de este tipo de trenes... las personas que no pagan su pasaje.

Cuando uno se monta en el tren no te piden el pasaje, sino que en medio del viaje, en cualquier momento pasan unos chequeadores revisando los tiquetes de las personas y si no tienes tu tiquete en orden o no tienes uno del todo, debes pagar el doble de la tarifa normal como multa. Sin embargo, hay personas que cuentan con que los chequeadores pasan en orden por los vagones o no pueden saber donde te montaste o bajaste para viajar de gratis (o al menos menos de lo normal si te atrapan), asi que justo antes de que vengan los chequeadores esas personas emigran de manera significativa y descarada al vagon siguiente y cuando tienen la oportunidad se bajan del tren en una estacion y corren a toda velocidad a un carro lejano para evitarlos nuevamente. Tampoco crean que es solo algo que hacen personas de bajos recursos, pude ver desde hombres de traje entero y corbata hasta jovenes con cara de no matar ni una mosca hacer este deporte, porque segun parece, algunos lo hacen por diversion.

Llegados a Moscu tuve mi primera experiencia en metro (los de los aeropuertos de Houston y Madrid no cuentan) donde pude disfrutar muy rapidamente de las famosas diferencias entre las estaciones (distintas combinaciones de colores, materiales, iluminacion, bancas, vitrales, esculturas o dibujos en cada una) ya que esta prohibido tomar fotos y permanecer mucho tiempo observando el panorama es una señal de alerta para la militia para que vengan a revisar tus documentos ya que el metro es el blanco mas frecuente de terrorismo en esta ciudad; apenas el sabado anterior hubo una pequeña explosion en las afueras de una estacion que al principio se penso era una bomba, pero al parecer fueron unos fuegos artificiales defectuosos o mal colocados.

Una vez en nuestra parada final en el Bulevar Tsvetnoj, encontrado nuestro hostel у instalados nos dirijimos al primero de muchos Coffee Houses de los que dependimos en el futuro tanto para el almuerzo como escapar del frio, ya que estan por todas partes tanto aqui como en San Petersburgo, donde llegue a observar 2 en 2 cuadras consecutivas.

Luego siguio nuestra primera visita a la Plaza Roja, el Jardin de Alexander, el Kremlin y la Armeria. Hay unas listas famosas de cosas que debes hacer antes de morir, y aunque no las recuerdo en detalle, visitar la Armeria del Kremlin de Moscu deberia ser una de ellas: las reliquias del pasado (vestidos, tronos, carruajes, decorados, vajillas, ...), pinturas, iconos religiosos, armas, joyas (incluyendo coronas y cetros de los zares) y regalos diplomaticos recibidos por el imperio en epocas anteriores son incontables y de incalculable belleza y valor.

Por cierto, entre la Plaza Roja y el Jardin experimente otra clasica actividad moscovita: ser detenido por la militia por ningun motivo, revision de documentos, enfrentar algun cargo pseudo-imaginario y pagar un soborno para seguir mi camino. Afortunadamente, el militia nos recomendo una forma de evitar estas situaciones en el futuro: no hablar en idiomas extranjeros o en ruso con mal acento, esa es otra señal de alerta para que un militia te detenga.

Me despido por ahora, hasta la proxima actualizacion.
