I've resigned! Yes, resigned myself to the fact that Filipinos will always be bickering about something and that every Filipino wants to be president at the same time.

If not for the decision, I would have never known that COMELEC had been using Beta Software to demonstrate the functionality of the counting machines.

I keep on wondering how a whole year can just come and go without me really noticing. We'll maybe it's because I'm working (or at least pretending [...]
