RC2 - to - 6.3 STD


Posted in , , , ,

Finally, I'm done with my first template development for CRE Loaded 6.3 Standard. I have been worried about this task since I first received it. I actually spent more than the normal but it is my first time so I think it's a good excuse. :-P

I have been converting templates for CRE Loaded but from older version of the same cart so it's pretty easy to grasps the new file structures are. But developing a template from one cart to another type of cart is a different story. And to add, I am converting an osCommerce template compatible to CRE Loaded 6.3 Standard.

My first few hours (to days) has been a mess. I resorted to doing the development locally in my laptop so to speed things up instead of using our company's development site. Don't blame me but I hate the loading time and I am lazy when uploading changes a dozen times for just one file. Who would like to do that? Well I managed to grasps the file structure by looking at referenced templates and the default templates already installed in CRE Loaded 6.3. But I think one of the big help aside from over-extending my patience in dueling this task is guidance and peace giventh to me from up above.

Another help is this site I found while looking for references:


(Of course it's from CRE Loaded's website, silly me!)

Anyways, hopefully I would be efficient in specific tasks like these. I can't wait to try another template development. I just love challenges despite having to tackle dirty roads. Are you?

The Past Month


Posted in , , , , ,

Hi all,

I haven't been able to update my blog for over a month. I have been very very very busy with life. I had to restructure my priorities. Sad to say, blogging is one of the least but of course, it doesn't mean I'll stop blogging. To catch up, what happen to me in between my last post and today...

1.) Finally I got my PLDT DSL Connection. I had a previous rant post about PLDTMyDSL services. Apparently all is well now. I am a very satisfied customer. The internet service live up to the package I selected - a 1mbps package. I can now watch movies and anime online without having to wait a little for my browser to load. As for my SmartBro connection, it is still up here though. Hindi ko pa napaputol so I have two internet connection at home.

2.) Another happy gift for myself. The laptop I order has arrived. It is an ACER brand - "Aspire 4530". Though it didn't have the fingerprint reader feature as I have ordered (naubusan na sila ng stocks, limited lang pala yung feature) I am happy with my new gadget. Here's a short overview of my laptop's specs as I have upgraded all of the stuffs I can upgrade:

  • AMD Turion™ X2 Ultra Dual Core ZM-82 (2.2GHz, 2Mb Cache, 800MHz FSB)
  • NVIDIA® nForce® MCP77MH Chipset

  • 14.1in. WXGA TFT LCD(1200x800)
  • NVIDIA® GeForce® 9100M G integrated 3D graphics with up to 752Mb of Turbo Cache™
  • 500 GB SATA HDD

  • Multimedia Dolby Digital Surround Sound Effects
  • Mobility Radeon HD 3000 series GPU on 55 nm process
  • Wireless IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n mini-PCIe Wi-Fi adapter
  • Built-in 5-in-1 Card Reader
  • Built-in Intel Wireless LAN (802.11a/b/g/Draft-N) Wireless Connection

  • >> DDR2-800 SO-DIMM
  • >> Desktop and mobile Architecture for System Hardware (DASH) 1.0 support (DASH page)
  • >> Trusted Platform Module (TPM) support.

Indeed, I am a very very happy monkey when this piece arrived. I was able to play games here too. Thanks to my friend who helped me able to get this piece. ^_^x

3.) At long last, I am now back to gyming. A friend invited me and she's very persistent and she needs company so I'm finally back. I just started recently in Holiday Gym and Spa (or Metro Lifestyle - really depends on her). I later that day I found out that I am 3 pounds overweight so I guess I have no choice (or I really do. ^_^) but to stick my butt back to the treadmill.

4.) Fixed my attitude towards work. I have been trying to change the bad habits towards work so far I am doing well. I don't want to lose my job (I quite like my current job right now) so I have to work my butt off. ^_^x

I think these are the major things that happened in my absence to the blogging world. Hopefully I'd be able to manage my time better and make blogging a habit from then one. Wish me luck. ^_~
