History of the Blogs Chapter 7: "Going Techie with TECHkyrocky"

You already enjoy discovering each bits of rocks, listen to your favorite music and watch its music video, read my literary articles, and get to know everything about your favorite TV series! Now it's time to become techie!

We're already on the seventh chapter of the history of my blogs. So for this part, let us know the history of this gadget and gizmo techie site known as TECHkyrocky!

It Originates From This Site

The TECHkyrocky Official Logo

Originally, this site is known as Mortgage Plus, a real state blog site all intends for commercial purposes. It just aims to get ads and attracts clients. Until I decided to reformat and convert it!

Friday, May 8, 2009 the former Mortgage Plus site was converted to what is known now as TECHkyrocky. The layout, the design, and of course the contents were all changed. The previous real state articles were all deleted and changed to articles about gadgets, gizmos, devices, and all the techie things and products!

The reconverted site was now renamed as TECHkyrocky. Again, it came from two words: "tech" and "rocky". Forming them together means "a techie rocky". Merging them forms "TECHkyrocky".

But why TECHkyrocky and not as Techierocky?

The TECHkyrocky Site!

Well, it's simply because to make it coherent with my name rocky. If I use Techierocky, my name should be Rockie leading to a title Techierockie!

So since I am Rocky, and to put coherence and parallelism to my blog title, it was named as TECH-ky-rocky, the word TECH was merge by ky to rocky giving you TECHkyrocky! Take note that the first word TECH was capitalized to emphasize that this is a tech or a techie blog! It is then followed by the small caps kyrocky!

Of course the URL was also patterned to its name giving you the address as techkyrocky.blogspot.com!

The site's subtitle description is "Gadgets, Gizmos, Devices, and Other Modern Technology Advancement Quick Reference Compilation"! since all of its contents all came from the different web source! Yup, it contains no original articles since it's only a compilation of all the tech articles around the net! It aims to provide the readers with the latest gadgets, devices, or technologies. Since each devices have their own specific specs, better to just borrow the exact articles from its original source rather to make my own to avoid an interpretation mistake!

I also like to take this opportunity to formally announce that TECHkyrocky already had its Facebook Fan Page. It just started last Sunday and glad that its fans keep on growing! Thanks for being one of those many fanatics! =)

So did you love this rocky's techie site?! What more can you suggest? Did you already visited it?! Well, see you next time on the next chapters of my blogs history...!!! C",)

My New PC

The long wait is over! Finally, I already had my Personal Computer in our home! Yeepey!!!

It was just delivered in our home last Saturday afternoon together with the installation of our internet.

So again, I will let you to be the first to explore my new PC. Of course, I will also let you know some of the stories behind it and the specifications for better visualization! Are you ready...?!

Let's go!
The Web-Camera from A4Tech, The First I Bought
My CPU Monitor From Dell
It is an 8 Megapixel Web Camera

Actually, my original plan was to buy a laptop! Together with my officemates, we looked at the different brands and specs of laptops in the different computer stores in Cyberzone of SM Megamall! I also searched for the different brands and models in the internet and in the different brochures.

But after a thorough decision and discussions with my mom, my brother, and my friends, I finally came up to buy a desktop personal computer!

I put into considerations in buying a PC are the heavy duty use of it (since I have many transactions around the internet), cost (it is cheaper than the laptop), spare parts (we can replace immediately its separated spare parts with lesser cost), ease to upgrade, and its immovability (I will put in a permanent place in our home).

In fact, I bought this brand new PC in the store of my officemate. Yeah, my officemate at the same time my friend has a PC shop business. So, she gave me discounts in this PC. Also, they already installed all the softwares that I will need like the Microsoft office, Nero, Media Players, Games (per request of my brother), and many more! They were also the one who delivered it in our house!
The DVD Multi-Rewriter from LG

The CPU with Its Casing Below My Table


The Operating System of My New PC

Now, I will discuss with you the specs of my brand new PC.

My officemate friend gave me these competitive specs: 2GB memory, 320 Hard Disk Drive, Multi-DVD Rewritable player (LG brand), with optical mouse and AVR. The motherboard was provided by ASUS while the CPU monitor was from Dell. It has a built-in red CPU fan inside the CPU. And of course, it has a free installed operating System (OS) which is the Windows Vista!

Talking about the softwares inside it, all the different applications I requested were already installed. In fact, the Microsoft Office version in it was already the new MS Office 2010 version! The processor of it is a Core 2 Duo!

In terms of the hardwares, not included were the speaker, web camera, scanner and printer. I was the one who bought separately the speaker (from CD-R King but I will replace it later) and the web camera (8 Megapixel A4Tech).

On that very same day last Saturday, the Bayantel DSL, our internet provided installed our connection. Therefore since last Saturday, I was in front of my PC blogging, surfing, chatting, and flirting! Haha...! I already created my accounts in the different social networks such as in Facebook!

Well, now that you already explored my new PC, feel free to express your thoughts about it! Are you satisfy with the specs I have in my new PC?! What more can you suggest?! c",)
