Effect of Milenyo on Local Tech

While most of us are just slowly recovering from the aftermath of the recent Milenyo typhoon and others are still having chills of withdrawal symptoms from being dis-connected to the world wide world, we’d like to know how did the rest of our readers fare.

The PTB Team are majority geeks and these creatures cannot live long enough without internet so imagine how much trauma we had in the last week. I transformed my blogmobile into a roaming office with that 90-watt DC/AC converter and hoping nearby coffee shops that have generators also have wifi. Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough power to plug in my HP laserjet and print out the certificates for Marc’s Isulong SEOPH Contest which was successfully held at Pier 1 despite the fact the wifi was scarce and PLDT WeRoam was crawling.

So, what’s your Milenyo strategy?

    you probably have a pldt phone running on legacy networks…newer telcos like bayantel and globe use DLCs which are connected to meralco power lines to run so when power is out, down din yung telephone service, back-up batteries only works for a certain amount of time unlike the pldt legacy network, the phone is powered by the legacy switches…ganon din yung mga cell sites, meralco-electricity/power dependent din ang mga yan so nung milenyo, bagsakan din mga cellular networks…
