Title: perpetual WHERE can i buy thread?
Post by: ris on March 17, 2011, 03:21:58 AM
sobrang enjoy yung what did you buy thread.  maraming mga bagay dun na tinatanong natin kung saan nila nabili.  siguro meron din tayo mga tanong kung saan makakabili ng mga bagay bagay.

dito nalang sana natin lagay if ever.

meron din kasi ako iniisip kung saan makakabili.  ako na mauuna magtanong.

anybody here know where i can buy hair clippers?  yung mura lang.  meron kasi ako nakita na philips hair clipper kaya lang 3999.  sobrang over budget.  anybody know a hair clipper na battery operated for about 1k and below?  sensya na kung mura sobra.  yun lang talaga budget ko...

Seryoso ba yan?? hahahaha

item ive been desperately looking for Thermal Pads. those that you stick in-between heatsink and processor die rather than using thermal paste.
Thermal paste is the best heat conductor for large heatsinks like those used for processor and video card. I don't think there exists a thermal pad capable of transferring that much heat from the chip to the heatsink. But for ram chips you can just use any double-sided tape, much better than thermal pads in my opinion because of its thinness.

Post by: reel on March 20, 2011, 11:56:47 PM
@juke, i had good experience with thermal pads, especially that one that comes along Socket A boxed processors. its properly installed onto the sink and only a bit of paste required prior to install.

problem is, i have these bunch of inno3D 9600 based cards that come with the crappiest bunch of coolers, surface is not smooth, worst aluminum graining ever. and no amount of thermal paste re-application would ever let the cards function with the stock cooler.
Title: Re: perpetual WHERE can i buy thread?
Post by: juke on March 21, 2011, 09:13:31 PM
^ I see. But I doubt thermal tapes transmit heat faster than pastes.

Anyway, here are some sellers of thermal pads from TPC.

^I don't know about that thermal pad, but their thermal paste has a big issue with aluminum. So there is a big chance that you actually saw another thermal pad.

landmark ka nalang if ever.  sure mahal sa rustans pero the best quality ang makukuha mo sa rustans.  marami actually sa tabi tabi na mga groceries.  subukan mo din maglakad lakad sa malate near robinsons ermita.  may mga korean groceries dun.  feeling ko authentic naman sobra yung kasi koreano ang may ari.  expect to see more korean groceries than others though.  madami kasi koreano doon

Nope, the 2500 has locked multipliers while the 2500K is unlocked. highest OC I got from the a 2500 without trying is 4Ghz while with the 2500K i got 4.8Ghz.

RSun's 2500 is priced the same with QLT South's 2500K.

Sorry medyo late na ata itong post.  Pero there are at least three Japanese and Korean shops selling authentic Japanese ingredients along Timog.  One is near the corner of Quezon Ave and Timog, another one is across Wensha spa in Timog, then there are a few more along Panay.

where can I buy Mavs championship tees? I asked an Adidas store in one of the malls, but according to the sales person, they're not sure if they'll even sell those here. the tess are available online, but the shipping cost is more expensive than the shirt. =[

thanks,  kumukuha rin ako sa kanila.  i'm looking for cheaper ones, though.  yung mga binibili ko kasi sa deeco na preamp tubes 350 each lang,  toshiba or national NOS.  problem is wala nang stock nung 12AU7.

550 iirc yung benta nila sa 12AX7 at 12AT7 sa epektos.

^There's this japanese shop in Rob. Place Ermita that has WWII trinkets, etc. called "yamasawa." (That shop is strange. No one really buys there, not much even browse there. Surely it doesn't turn a profit, but it's been there for years now. I truly wonder if it's one of the many ways the yakuza launders money.)

Are the keys still as soft to press? My Logitech keyboard's problem is that the keys are quite difficult to press now.

I had bad experience with a Genius mouse and tablet, that's why I don't consider it.

As for CDR King's palmrest, I prefer something more durable. I bought their mousepad with wrist support and while it does the job, the support pad is quite stiff and uncomfortable after a few months of use.

Sorry to hear that. But I bet they are much better now considering their technology should have matured in the past years.

Di ba may exhaust fan yan under the table kaya wala masyado smoke? I assume yun ang ginagamit sa Yakimix. Ganyan kasi gamit sa mga smokeless yakiniku bars sa Japan. Haven't tried Yakimix yet. Pero meron kami dati sa bahay na bulgogi grill na nilalagay sa normal gas stove lang. May ring siya na nilalagyan ng tubig, so parang steamer and not much smoke, or at least yung black smoke. Sa SM namin nabili, yung mga As Seen on TV stalls.

Would anyone know where I can get those cheap plastic battery cases for AAA or AA?  Each case accommodates four batteries.  Electonics Boutique used to have them for something like 15 or 20 bucks each, but it seems that there are no more stocks there.
I saw some yesterday near my aunt's home, P15 each. I'll probably buy 2 for myself. On a side note, I went to Hidalgo yesterday, I find it weird that even popular camera stores in Hidalgo doesn't sell them.

She's at Valenzuela. Sorry, I wasn't able to take note of the store name since I was in a hurry, maliit na store lang sya. Napansin ko lang kasi may isang battery nakalagay sa loob. I just remembered someone asking about this item when I came back last night. I might get two for myself. Not really near my aunt's pero malapit lang kasi sya sa isang customer ng aunt ko. Pwede kita isabay ibili kung gusto mo. Pickup mo na lang sa bahay namin sa Manila. PM kita.

You don't need syringes to bleed brake lines...

you can easily bleed the lines using 2 feet of plastic/silicon hose, a one liter brake fluid container and some leg pumping action...

Changing to braided lines on a motorbike. Not needed but it's harder to bleed from empty, plus I don't have a helper. Saw the use of the syringe in youtube and got the job done in 5 minutes for both calipers; makes sense since bubbles naturally go upward.

Kumusta ang cabinet hunting?

Maganda yung nabili ko sa sulit kasi meron na syang door seal/trap para hindi pumasok ang mga alikabok. Yun nga lang sa hinge parts wala, kaya nilagyan ko pa ng filter. Meron pa ring nakakapasokna konting alikabok, pero more than 1yr na hindi ko pa sya nalilinis kasi konti lang ang alikabok. ^_^

Yung cable organizer, marami sa mga hardware at DIY stores. Pwede din yung twist ties at yung zip ties, o kaya yung mga may mounting tape sa likod. Common lang ang mga yan kaya wala kang problema maghanap.

I'm not sure if these are still available, but here are my thermometers, the shop where I got them and the estimated price as I remember.

Ordinary thermometer = ~P100 at National Bookstore SM Manila
Taylor digital indoor + outdoor thermometer = ~P600 at Handyman Robinson's Place Manila

(http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q151/juke_jopat/products/thermometer.jpg)



Casio Watch AQF102W series = P3,000 at Time Depot

(http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q151/juke_jopat/products/qw4738.jpg)


The Casio watch is very handy as I can always know the temperature where I'm at. All I have to do is remove it from my wrist and let it rest somewhere, it'll read the ambient temperature in around 15mins. Casio has other series with built-in digital thermometer, but afaik this is the only model which has analog time and metal bracelet.

Yung 2.6ml kse for adult dogs is P400 a month sa vet ng mga aso ko and mejo nabibigatan ako coz madami akong aso. I was thinking, bka me nakakaalam ng place na tipong sila yung supplier etc so I can get it cheaper and maybe someone selling wholesale pra bibili nako ng for one year basta makamura.

^ Don't you give regular baths  to your pets?

We have had pets since I can remember... we even adopt/rescue strays (both cats and dogs) but we've never used anti-flea or tick medications. We just give them regular baths with anti-dandruff shampoo... and not one of them have fleas or ticks.

We currently have 4 dogs (2 are rescued strays) and 60 cats (all rescued).

Yung mga dogs sa house ng mom ko sa province wala din fleas and ticks kahit nga once a month lang ata paliguan ng mom ko. So sa location ko it's difficult for me kse yung mga neighbors wala pakialam sa pets nila.

Bianca, I more or less have the same problem.  I have four dogs, and they keep scratching.  While we do not see fleas when we examine their hair and skin, the vet says that those pests are microscopic.  I can believe that.  But Frontline for four mutts on a regular basis can be quite heavy on the pocket.  I've even tried asking friends to get me Frontline from the US as it will come out cheaper, but apparently you just can't buy the stuff unless you have a prescription from the vet. 

You can try buying from Cartimar.  Prices there are cheaper than vet prices, particularly kung may suki ka na.

There are many watch shops in Rizal Avenue, you can definitely find your battery there. Just be careful of pickpockets because they roam the area even in broad daylight.

Watch shops will charge you the cost of the battery + service charge for replacing the battery on your watch whether or not they do the service for you! That's the P160 cost madman was complaining about.

@ juke - I don't doubt that you can buy watches cheaper at Rizal Avenue. But as I said those watch repair shops sell the batteries as part of a service not as a product. Watch battery replacement is practically their bread and butter these days. If you can find one that will sell you a button battery for less than P100 let us know.

I'm not familiar with the button battery types nor their current battery price, but around 2-3yrs ago asked our house helper to buy me a button cell (the one used in calculators), she bought a pad for P35 (around 6 pcs IIRC). I asked her to buy only 1pc but she told me the price for one pad and for 1pc is just the same. I'm also not sure if she bought originals or fake but the batteries worked well. Just curious, how much does a calculator button cell actually cost?

Your househelp probably bought Made in China knock-offs.  Not that they're inferior.  Like I said in my previous post, a pair of Maxell CR1616 button cell batteries sold at PhP 39.75 at Electronics Boutique more than a year back (that's two button cell batteries, compared to the PhP 160.00 for one CR1616 that the watch repair shop was selling me the other day.)  A button cell battery of a larger size would probably cost around PhP 30-40 at the proper place, as compared to around PhP 200-250 at a watch repair shop.  I think calculator batteries are smaller, so I'm guessing around PhP 20.00 each?

I miss RadioShack.  They had a wide array of such batteries.

Just so you'd know, I need the CR1616 for the car's remote key.  If I brought it to the casa for a battery replacement, I'd probably be charged 300 bucks for something that I can do by myself.

I thought I'd give you guys an update about dem button-cell batteries.  Went to Raon after lunch today.  Didn't want to go deep into the street all the way to Deeco, so I inquired first from Armstrong which is near the corner of Raon and Quezon Blvd.  I was surprised they didn't have the CR1616.  Went from one store to another and on my fourth try, found it.  50 bucks.  I was so happy that I forgot to haggle.  Oh, well.

yup.  kung complete line up of screws ang gusto mo.  to suy talaga.  pero kung torx lang, cdrking would do.  not even cdrking could compete with to suy on the number of screws they have.  ang alam ko pag di mo na mahanap sa ibang lugar yung screw mo, meron yun sa to suy.  so better go there nalang kung di ka sure sa iba.  para sigurado na

No way complete ang merchandise.  I once went through all the stores on that street to find a particular allen screw for my bicycle stem.  None of them had it.  In fact, I couldn't find the screw anywhere else in Manila.  I ended up buying a new stem.

the one I bought (size #3 - 11 Kg) costs ~Php120

there were size #1 in stainless and plastic last December

sizes #2 and #4 were "on the way" [sic] then... but I haven't been back since so I can't say if they really did get it in stock.

Thanks agian. I was able to go to Alimall today and I nearly missed the S-biner. None of the salespeople I asked know that they have this product! All of them pointed me to the hook section and when I asked them the description, all of them answered either it's already out of stock or they never had it, only the carabiner is available. After noticing the customers were few, I approached the cashier and asked her since all products in the store passes through her. Behold, the s-biner is in stock! She was kind enough to leave her seat and went to get 3 colors for me.

But the sad part is the price. It is nowhere near the price last December. I got it for P195. Too expensive but I got one nonetheless since I need it. I also bought another belt clip key holder for the same price. Also, they only have size #3 s-biner in stock so I have no other choice. I was aiming for #1, #2, and the 3-in-1 pack but was unlucky.

Title: Re: perpetual WHERE can i buy thread?
Post by: juke on February 08, 2012, 05:17:05 PM
@madman

The s-biner is at the backmost aisle, just one aisle from the hooks. Displayed with the other key holders on a small display rack.

The saleslady followed me to the cashier when I was about to pay. I snubbed her all the way. I was hesitant to credit her for the sale because she was one of the people I asked. But I thanked the cashier again as I reach her the payment.

^ wow... the item must be salable for them to mark it up by Php75.

Also when I bought mine, they were displayed in the racks in front of the check out counter.

^I guess if you put many rings or keys in it that they reach the latch. Then once the key or ring is pushed below, the latch may be opened. It's just a matter of protecting the latch end from being pushed inward. The spring is strong and good enough in my opinion.

That is a backpack with built-in stool.

@lahar
I saw one advertised in one of GMA's On-Call episodes, so there is a local seller. I'll post here if I find any info.



Edit:

Crap. I just looked closely, it's not a backpack with stool. It seems like a back-carry chair, wherein person A wears the gear and strap the belt to his body while person B sits on the back. I've only seen it in movies, haven't seen a real one except those made of wood used by the local natives to carry old people on their back.

juke, et al.,

Its a backpackframe or as they call it here in Japan a "pannier". I've seen one used by farmers and lumads, but they were made of wood/bamboo. I tried looking for one around the local camping and outdoor stores, but they don't have it or they don't know what it is. External frame packs are not that popular in the Philippines since they snag a lot on vegetation. I'll be needing at least 3 for carrying equipment. They are a bit expensive here plus its extra baggage weight.

If you already have a microsim and want to use it as a regular sim which is what a microsim adapter is you can buy one sa greenhills, dami sa mga kiosk dun.

AFAIK, almost all magnets being sold in stores are like that "permanent magnet". Try other National Bookstore branches and other educational supplies stores, I'm sure you will find what you need.

if you don't need "super strong" magnets, you could try DIY

I used to make one when I was a kid... using 4 inch nails and a couple of meters of magnet wire.

in your case, you could make one using flat bar.

This is very timely for me.  I was out of town for a week.  When I got back, sira na yung timer sa Carrier aircon ko.  Unless I find a way to get the darn timer fixed, I'll probably have to get one of these things that lahar mentioned.  Is this contraption "healthy" for the aircon unit?  What brands are dependable?  How much do these cost?  What do they look like?

^Its just a simple adaptor plug with a rotary switch (the kind you see on microwave ovens, toasters, and washing machines). Cuts off power to the appliance after a set time has elapsed. Mga nakikita ko sa ACE either Omni or Nextstar yung brand.

There's another timer device that instead of shutting down an appliance, it will turn it on after a certain time. This one is useful if you want to turn on the lights or the aircon before you arrive.

meron cdr king IIRC nung ganung device (timer for shut off) but since CDR king yun at high powered appliances, best to avoid it.

There's another timer device that instead of shutting down an appliance, it will turn it on after a certain time. This one is useful if you want to turn on the lights or the aircon before you arrive.

I have this digital timer from AceHardware... but, it's not rated for AC use (only 3600W/16A max).

We use it to turn the lights on in the patio and kennel area
It's programmable for the whole week.

Please permit me to stretch this timer discussion a wee bit further.  If I am to buy one of those third market aircon timers, how many watts and amps should it be able to handle for a 1.5 hp aircon unit?  For a 2.0 aircon unit?

where can i get good earplugs and how much do these cost? tia!

For hearing protection? On a well-stocked branch of handyman (like rob. place ermita) they have 3m e-a-r ultrafit for below 200 bucks. http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/PPESafetySolutions/PPESafety/Personal_Protective_Equipment/Product_Catalog/~/3M-E-A-R-UltraFit-Corded-Earplugs-VP340-4004-in-Vending-Packs-500-PR/Case?N=4294695380+5011378&Nr=AND%28hrcy_id%3AM8DC7N06PSgs_JG0VF9W4WQ_N2RL3FHWVK_GPD0K8BC31gv%29&rt=d

For the really good stuff and lots of choices, Wyler enterprises is rather close to bambang LRT station. http://wyler.awardspace.com/products/hear/hear2.htm (I actually think they're the ones who hold the handyman account.)

I believe I still have sensitive hearing; I cannot stand being at timezone without wearing any sort of hearing protection (i use in-ear headphones for that, attenuation is actually decent.)

Good luck and take care of your ear =).
 

the earplugs are for my father, he gets easily awakened by the raucous modified motorcycles that pass by the house in the wee hours of the night. are those earphones comfortable when sleeping? thanks for the reply.

Post by: athlonFan on April 25, 2012, 01:58:15 AM
if you are near eastwood, you can buy earplugs at moto-market. It's just outside eastwood, behind Starbucks (which is along the street of BMW and Ford).

Just ask for earplugs or go around the shop, you can't possibly miss it.

@Madman

In a word, yes. One of the last bastions of philippine manufacturing made with a modicum of pride IMHO.

Doesn't approach the fit and finish of japanese products but the materials are better than rebadged chinese ones. Paint is tough epoxy or powder coat finish that doesn't flake or scratch easily, decently thick sheet metal chassis. Cord is thick. 

*Rantish mode, no need to read*
Slim pickings for quality products nowadays when one goes to a generic home center like handyman or true value. But the clerk would always claim the american or german sounding brand is "heby duty" and is made in the USA sheesh.

Thanks for the heads-up guys.  That's good to know.  I looked in Ace Hardware, MegaMall for the aircon timer, and all they seemed to have was the Panther.  But it did look sturdy, durable.  And reasonably-priced, too.

Why do you need this? Why not just bring the jack to a repairshop, if there are jeepneys plying your place, I'm sure there's one near your place? Dun sa amin may 5 yata ako nadadaanan along Quirino Highway. If you only need the oil, I'm sure you can haggle a deal with them.

Yup,  pwede yan.  drain mo ng husto, baka kasi may tubig na yung jack.  tapos fill up with atf.  if you're familiar with the procedure for bleeding brakes:  similar lang yun procedure with your floor jack (refill/pump/repeat).

Where can I buy wireless headphones, not audiophile quality, but the kind used for schools (language-lab type)? The kind where all the students in a room can use the headphones and the signal is transmitted from a single transmitter. The headphones themselves are lightweight, battery powered, but cheap to replace if it gets damaged.

Similar to this:

Simplest would be to try looking for balloon makers. There are local chemical supply companies who sell helium, but by the bulk i.e. in tank fulls.

yeah that's what I've seen so far. I'll probably go to the nearest helium supplier and ask if they can just fill up the balloon for a fee.

Would you believe that I actually saw Infomax selling a helium tank? They quoted 2.5k for it lol won't even let me use a bit.

Since you don't really need much, talking to the neighborhood toy balloon maker would be easier since they are more amenable to selling "tingi", as opposed to official helium suppliers.

Anyway, I tried to seek advice from my Kumpareng Google. He gave me an idea to look for vinyl stickers. With the help of my friend, I ended up looking for printable transparent sticker.

I cut the portion I needed, then I washed the sticky side with soap & water for a while.

The vinyl transparent sticker now installed on my watch.

For wristwatches, they are easily scratched, they are prone to scratches if friction is applied sideways such as when you walk or suddenly turn while the hand moves sideways.

^Depende bro, they are not all the same size. Measure the hole size, then go to your local hardware to buy the screws you need. If you plan on attaching them on concrete wall, you need to buy tox screws. If on wood or metal, just buy nuts & bolts, hex nuts or wing nuts are ok (I prefer wing nuts for tool-less operation).

Your seniors are using the wrong term. You guys may understand each other because you are familiar with your own improvised term, but the other people won't get it since it is not the proper term. Nonetheless, they are still much for heavy duty use than what is needed, wall-mounting a tv/monitor.

lahar is correct, they are called expansion bolts. But take note that expansion bolt is for heavier use when understood by common people. They are embedded before the concrete is poured. They are almost the opposite of tox screws (in common people term) since the head is embedded in the concrete and the threaded part is exposed. But tox screws is one type of expansion bolt.

Thanks guys!

The tv stand with lcd mount that i bought did not come with screws(im actually looking for the screw that will attach my lcd to the lcd stand, not to the wall). So i just measured the depth of the screw and went to ace megamall and brought several sized screws. Luckily the samsung booth is just outside ace hardware so I was able to check without going back home.

For my 32 Samsung its an M6 screw with 12mm length. Fits perfectly.

Anyone know where I can buy replacement luggage wheels? Mr. Quickie does replacement but quoted me minimum of 2k for 4 wheels. Since my luggage is only 4k (Echolac) the time I bought it, I'm hesitating to cash out on the wheels. Looked at ebay and found inline skate wheels but almost as expensive at 1.5k without custom duties. TIA!

Recommend a firm please that specializes in installations of microphone/speakers in a classroom environment. The mic should be able to pickup the voices from the far corners, and the setup should minimize feedback.

Is this the domain of acoustic engineering consultants, sound design consultants or overkill?

nope... that's precisely what they do. The consultation fee you give them would be made up by getting the right kind of equipment that you need... instead of wasting time, effort and expensive equipment by trial and error.

Yeah i noticed that in some appliances, one leg in the plug is wider than the other and will go in a "picky" outlet in the only one, right way- must be an electrical spec. in some country. It sure is imperative that the ground is never "live."  I like plugs that have a fuse in them (such as those put in better cookers.)

(A rugged, japanese Sanwa cd800a DMM just costs 2.5K new. An average guy doesn't use it everyday but when there's a need for a DMM, there is no substitute. It told me that my pc case had ~65Volts AC floating around before i didn't connect it to a ground wire. Not enough to ground me, but it was there.)

@juke, thanks a lot for the favor.  Even at 2200 mAh, those GPs are probably more worthwhile than the unknown brand 3000 mAh I saw at Ace.   I'll check them out if I can't source cells that are in the vicinity of 8000 mAh or higher.

rechargeable batteries always give out consistent 1.2 V... the higher capacity Ds (8000mAh) only store more energy for longer use but it doesn't mean that it will produce brighter light. LED flashlights are energy efficient so it won't chomp down on the stored energy of 2000 mAh AAs that fast (probably last for 2-3 hours per charge).

nag check ako sa sulit.com.ph at meron nagbebenta ng 400 lang pero di ko sure kung parehas sa nabibili mo.  come to think of it, mas maganda siguro yung good quality ang bilihin na sleeping bags and 800 is still a reasonable price to pay.  may nakita din kasi ako na 3k na sleeping bags.  sabi kasi sa post, cheap sleeping bag so i thought as low as possible.  i do not consider buying it from a mall cheap.  usually if it can be found outside the mall its cheaper.  siguro greenhills would be a better fit for cheaper sleeping bags?  i have no idea on these things so i cannot recommend a definite location.  maybe the advantage of buying it inside the mall is assurance of quality?

Guys I need to buy a good quality 2 USD port car charger. It plugs intp the cigarette lighter and has two USB ports for charging devices. I'm not sure if CDR King has this but I'd like to know if there are better quality ones available here.

Belkin has a 2-port car charger (with a 5-amp rating).

Some of my ref magnets have fallen apart, with the magnets disappearing in the crevices of the floor.  Where can I buy small round (or even square) replacement magnets?  I tried National Bookstore Glorietta, but there wasn't any of the reasonably priced type I wanted.  They had real heavy-duty and larger magnets.

you can check out tpc for 2nd hand.  my cousin got his at quiapo.  a ps2 component cable is the same as the ps3 so it would work on both.  my cousin uses his on both of them. just search for component cable in tpc.  and also, game shops sell them but they are much more expensive.  i think you could get them for 250php in quiapo.  it is sold for 800php i think at malls.  just ask for ps2 component cable.  and yes, there is a difference in output quality compared to rca output.  both on ps2 and ps3!  there is even a trick(button press) in the ps2 so that it would try to display on higher definition when you use a component cable.  i think its hold square and circle while the game is loading.

Wow, there is such a trick? I've never had a modern gaming console other than a PSP, my last one then was a family computer. It's great if every game console have this trick.

exactly how big are those magnets? 

why not buy those magnets na pang whiteboard then take out the magnets?  or if it's the really small type, buy a cheapo magnetic chess set (although I think the really cheap ones do not have magnets anymore) and get the magnets from the chess pieces.

Here's an idea - remember those FM transmitters that you connect to an mp3 player so you can play out the music through a car's stereo system? You can connect one of those to the TV and then use a small fm radio or celfone with fm radio receiver to listen in.

You can find something like this in our CDRK suki. But I haven't seen anywhere without a cable though. I've only seen angled ones without cable from the cellphone accessories, but they are propriety cables. Also, try visiting audio stores and store located at Raon.

^ they're not exactly 110V since most of them came from Japan so they're most probably designed for 100v.

and since our power mains supply 230 - 235V now (and not 220V) an electrician would only be able to reduce it to 115 -120V which is 10% - 15% above its design... not unless your friend uses a step-down transformer (and supplies the appliance with 100V).

Ok lang naman yan, may +/-10-15% tolerance naman lahat yan (especially for robust appliances like AC). Pero hassle talaga yung gagamit ka pa ng transformer, unless your house is already wired for it.

and based on my UPS' logs, it's not uncommon to experience long bouts (3 - 4 hours) of ~240V supply... way up the upper limit of Japan designed equipment.

depende sir sa laki ng room.. my sis bought an aircon last month for my parents room (iwas heatstroke, since twice na nadala sa hospital mom ko due to palpitation related to weather)it cost around 16K (carrier, 1.5HP), the size of the actual room was around 18 sq.mtr but it has an extension (dating dresser pero giniba at pede din tulugan) at around more or less 6sq mtr..

based sa rep ng abenson and sa carrier consumer guide, (as far as i can recall) if room area were :
- 20-25 sq mtr= 1.5HP
-17-20 sq mtr = 1HP
-12-16= 0.75HP
- 10 sq mtr or less = 0.5 HP

@lahar, I did consider that third party timer, but the outlet to which the aircon unit is plugged is pretty much unreachable for day-to-day timer adjustments.  Maybe as a last resort.

I'll see if I will be brave enough to pen the timer device first.

saan ba mas practical bumili ng tv (lcd/led) para sa ermats ko?
gusto nya maliit lang, less than 32 inches.
dito sa us, then pa ship ko sa pinas or dyan na lang sa pinas?
kung sa pinas, which store?

Bagsak presyo na yung mga local LCD TVs. Local warranty na and 220V pa.

hindi ba autovolt na ngayon ang mga lcd tvs?

Not all are autovolt. Yung pinadala ng kapatid ko na 48 from the US is still 110V only.

Maybe not exactly like that but you could buy a Sony Walkman phone handsfree like the HPM-64 or the HPM-70 (Google for actual pics) that have removable earphones.


I think some knockoffs are still for sale in phone shops or TPC or TCP if all you need is the connector for your headphones.

Not sure. Another alternative is Tutuban Mall. Halos ganun din ang presyohan. When I was shopping for a barong I tried Onesimus first, but the choices are limited and price rather steep. I tried Tutuban and ended up buying 3 (for the budget of 1 Onesimus barong).

Too much!  Even if it were dual-USB.  Considering that the CD-R King thingeys range in price from PhP 80 to 200 (but that's why I don't trust them).  Something in the five hundred peso range would be reasonable.

Try mo muna yung safety razor na single blade. 2, 3, 4, 6 blades are actually marketing gimmicks and tend to irritate the skin. The first blade does most of the work while the rest just scrape the skin.

If you're set on getting the old type of razor, ask your local barber or hortaleza. Maganda yung sa mga barbers - they look like the old type of razors pero yung mga murang blade lang ang "bala".

Also, wash your razor with alcohol after use so it stays sharp longer. Water is what dulls the edge of razors.

I've seen them in many stores, there are also some that have 4-6 slots. Try visiting gadget stores, they may have one or two. But you might want to take note of the amperage since most of then are only rated at 0.5-1.0A per usb outlet.

I stay away from Omni as much as possible. One friend who owns an electrical hardware store once told me that Omni is considered a sub standard brand in Japan.

Even those power outlets with switch, they get grounded ofter some months (the switch glows even off and no power plug is attached).

I'm the kind of guy who takes shaving seriously.  I have a collection of blades, razors, and shaving creams/soaps.  Believe me, you don't need more than one blade for a close shave.  Also, it is not the pressure applied by the razor to the skin that makes for a good shave, but rather the angle of the blade on the skin.  In fact, some enthusiasts will tell you to apply zero pressure, and just let the blade glide on your face.  Two, three, four, or even five blades on a razor = razor burn.

which brand would he recommend?  well, even if its sub standard in japan it may not be the case here.  we have lower standards right?  and japan may have an extremely high standard too.  yun din pala rason bakit mura ng omni dito.  the thing with omni is may mas mura pa sa kanya na binebenta dito.  at may plug adapter ako na nasira na hindi omni.  i thnk thats the one cheaper than omni.  eh yung omni na adapter ko ayos parin. 

siguro it also boils down to how long would you want to use the product also.  if you bought a very expensive product, you expect it to last longer.  since omni is in the middle of expensive and cheap then maybe we should expect its life to be average?

maybe consider the panther brand? i think its even a philippine company.  any thoughts on this?  we alsohave those panther brand power strips and they seem to be doing well. 

slightly off topic but since we are talking about usb chargers:  so does this mean that these usb power strips cannot charge the note 2 or iphone 5?

The thing is, we still have to have an Omni product that last reasonably. And we have used Omni prodicts since the early 1990's. We use to think the same with you because the product came from Japan, but upon learning the friend's revelation years ago, we believed it because we can personally attest to the claim.

I would even trust local brands such as Panther or the less reliable Eagle more than Omni based on my personal experience.

There's a chance. I previously mentioned to take note of the amperage because the worst case is that it won't be able to charge high amperage gadgets. You should be looking at least a 2.0A (per slot) usb charger to be sure it can handle your gadgets, but if your gadget requires higher amperage, the charge time may increase significantly.
Title: Re: perpetual WHERE can i buy thread?
Post by: madman on August 19, 2013, 06:54:02 AM
@juke, quite true about the amperage.

I was wondering, though.....I suppose that the Omni product will be 220v only?  I just realized that I was originally looking for something that's at least dual USB and that's rated 100-240v so that I can bring it with me when I travel, so that I don't have to bring all the OEM chargers that came with my electronic stuff.

I could be wrong about the Omni having 2 USB outputs as I didn't get a long look at it before a salesperson swiped it from the display rack.  mukhang 1 lang based from what I've seen sa net.  Besides, it looks pretty bulky (since it also has a universal AC socket) if you intend to bring it along while traveling.

I'm looking for a shop that sells good quality cat6 cable by the meter. I'm having the cable installed in-wall in my house. Sellers at tipidpc and sulit usually sells by the box (300m) which is too much. I only need about 75m. I'm staying away from the generic stuff as this is a permanent one time installation.

with the current price of "reliable" FO equipment, FO home networks would still be years off.

and for short network runs, there's hardly any significant and practical gain in going FO as against a cheaper gigabit network structure.

@barurutor

Cat6 is current generation and already quite common. It's not bleeding edge stuff like the cat7 you mentioned. For the length I'm looking for price premium over cat5e is manageable assuming I can get it by the meter.

Guys, my point is, a "permanent" installation of <your preferred cable> probably won't turn out to be permanent because standards become obsolete as technology advances, regardless of whether the advance is tomorrow or next year or 10 years down the line. What should be permanent IMHO is a way to re-wire the rooms with whatever cable needed, which turns out to be installing wiring conduit + cable pull strings.

Personal example, my parents' house got wired with additional rj-11 ports during the dial-up days to add phone lines for heavy modem use. now those ports are unused because the internet comes in via DSL + wifi. 

re: cat5e/cat6
http://www.kit-communications.com/FAQCat5evsCat6.htm (http://www.kit-communications.com/FAQCat5evsCat6.htm) -> informative link comparing cat5e/cat6/cat6a

For uvax requirement of 75m, cat5e and cat6 are equivalent in performance. Plus, installation of cat5e is supposed to be a lot easier/cheaper.

from http://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=1216253 (http://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=1216253) -> another house wiring thread:

Quote
The main difference is that CAT6 is larger than CAT5e due to the plastic insert and doesn't bend as sharply.

So, you end up needing more clearance in your wall box and larger/more holes in the top plate as well as through other obstructions.

When you go to terminate it, you need to cut away the plastic insert without damaging the wires which is a little tricky. The individual conductors aren't as supple so neatly unraveling them to punch into keystones is more of a pain.

The rest of the debate comes down to there being no application for CAT6, it was passed over for CAT6a which can be used for 10GBASE-T. But the installation requirements for CAT6a are complex and seem to be venturing more into RF engineering than amateur electrician territory.

http://www.siemon.com/us/learning/10-10-07-why-cat6a-over-cat6-for-10gb.asp (http://www.siemon.com/us/learning/10-10-07-why-cat6a-over-cat6-for-10gb.asp)

Bottom line, get a box of CAT6 since you already have the keystones for the heavier gauge wire and have fun doing your install. There's no harm, but there's no gain from it either for data applications.

try to ask them directly to confirm.  jac has a new york office that could help you in your purchase.  my friend tried to purchase from ebay via jac but he was actually unsuccessful in having the product paid for and shipped here.  its actually a credit card problem i suppose.  he was trying to use paypal and payment wouldnt go through.  maybe this would also be one of he factors you could consider when purchasing items online from the US

Never use CDRK hdd devices unless they are branded and just relabeled as CDRK. They destroy HDDs.

Yes. But don't use clone software if possible. I used to do this but the clone sometimes gets damaged if the hardware source is damaged.

If the HDD to be duplicated contains only files, I'd rescue them with Windows' resident cloner, robocopy.

Here's my personal prompt command. I've been using it for file backups for 2 years now. I got this trick from TPC years ago.

robocopy C:\ D:\folder /copy:dt /dcopy:t /s /a-:r /R:3 /W:5

R = retries
W = waiting time for retries
d = copy date stamp
t = copy time stamp (both write and modify time/date)

i asked in cdrking and they said all their enclosures do not support 3tb hdds.  only up to 2tb.  which is also the reason why we always see enclosures and docks mentioning their capabilities as up to 2tb or 3tb.

the problem is, i cannot view the files in windows xp and it even slows down my pc to a crawl.  but when i tried plugging it in my media tank, it still can be read.  which is why i am thinking of using an enclosure or dock to copy files from one hard drive to another.

They are wrong, those devices are just bridges for communication. The 2TB limit is the MBR limit. You have to format the drive with GPT. Another option is to partition the drive into smaller than 2TB partitions. I have had bought enclosures before that the seller/shop warned me that the max capacity was 750GB or 1TB, I bought them anyway and they still worked flawlessly with my 1TB and 2TB drives. Even my friends confirmed my words upon buying the enclosures.

Windows XP 32bit doesn't support GPT, therefore doesn't support higher than 2TB.

My Galaxy S Advance's uptime is getting noticeably shorter.  I already tried several battery calibration techniques as well as using a hotplugging CPU governor.

My phone's more than a year old already so I guess the battery's already due for replacement.  If I'm going to replace it I thought I might as well get a slim extended battery.

I have a considerable collection of audio CDs.  For storage, I prefer to insert each jewel case into a thin plastic (almost like cellophane) sleeve (for lack of a better word) to further help keep the dust out.  With a new CD, I very carefully try to slice off the edge of the plastic wrapper that came with the CD, take the disc and load it onto iTunes, and upon returning it to its jewel case, very carefully try to put it back into the plastic "sleeve."  I'm sure others have done the same.  And like me, they are successful in preserving the plastic to re-use as a CD case sleeve less than half the time.

So, some time back, I bought a whole bunch of these plastic thingeys from CD-R King and very happily used them for my CD jewel cases.  But I've run out.  Don't know where to find them on sale.  CD-R King has them, but won't sell them anymore, no matter how I beg and explain that I used to buy exactly the same things from them.  CD-R King uses them to put the CD-Rs or DVD-Rs that one buys tingi.  I've looked in National Bookstore and other computer/electronic shops, but can't find them anywhere.  Moreover, the salespeople don't seem to understand what it is I'm looking for.

I do hope somebody can tell me where to buy something like this:
(Also, I'd appreciate it if anyone could tell me what it's called.)

Are there any local resellers of MugenPower batteries?

My Galaxy S Advance's uptime is getting noticeably shorter.  I already tried several battery calibration techniques as well as using a hotplugging CPU governor.

My phone's more than a year old already so I guess the battery's already due for replacement.  If I'm going to replace it I thought I might as well get a slim extended battery.

Battery was already bulging/bloated.  Original battery for this model was tough to find so I settled for an MSM.HK green power series replacement battery (same 1500mAh rating as the original).  Judging by user feedback, MSM.HK batteries seem to be one of the better ones as far as "Class A" batteries go.  I do hope they're right...


update:


Phone is still running on a single charge after 27 hours.  I'm impressed.  This phone never lasted more than 12 hours of standby even when I first bought it brand new.  A couple of SMSes, 30-45 minutes of music playback, 1.5 hours of gaming and it's only at 23%.

@WE, my timer is rotary.

You can try opening it and see whats wrong. These rotary switches are pretty robust, mauuna pa masira yung plastic handle kesa yung nasa loob. Pero meron naman nabibili na timer switch sa Ace, you can use that to bypass the AC timer.

RE:  Aircon timer.

For some strange reason, my rotary aircon timer resurrected for a few months.  But now, it's dead again.  I'm through with fiddling around with it and am decided to buy a third party AC timer.  How many amps should said timer be good for a 2 HP airconditioning unit?  20A?

Our living room set is old school. But the seats are crumbling. Where can I find someone who does "silohiya?" Google wasn't of much help. I suppose that the "silohiyist" should not come from too far away.....so I must mention that the living room set that has to be worked on is in Mandaluyong.


Or is "sulihiya?"

Not familiar with the word "silohiya". You mean an upholsterer? Google unfortunately won't be of much help, I know a few but they are near my place in SJDM Bulacan. I'm sure there are a few near your place, you'll have to "sneaker-search" for it.
Title: Re: perpetual WHERE can i buy thread?
Post by: madman on January 05, 2014, 06:08:44 PM
@lahar, I suppose that "silohiya" will fall under the general category of upholstery. It's the process and result of making the seat and even the back rest of some furniture out of webbing from local material, which I'm presuming is rattan (although I may be mistaken). I've seen some chairs with plastic "silohiya," though. But it's the craftsman who does these things that I'm looking for.


I've done several "sneaker searches," but have not seen anybody of that sort. And I've also asked around, but nobody seems to know either. That's why I thought I'd try PPC.

Or is "sulihiya?"

it's spelled solihiya/sulihiya (depending on the dialect)

the people who know this craft are called "weavers"...
usually they're the same ones who do handicrafts, as well.

if you live in/near QC...
there's one who does solihiya repair along T. Gener St. near the corner of Kamuning Rd.
another one along Langka St. between Kamias Rd. and Bignay St.

This sulit ad if you live near Cavite...

you could also try: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Blue-Ribbon-Furniture-ShopLorillas-Gen-Upholstery/119224554754625
but I'm pretty sure their rates would be quite high.

I'll ask my mom if she still has the contact number of the sulihiya/solihiya weaver who repaired her rocking chair.

Just thought I'd give you guys an update for whatever it's worth.  While my "sneaker search" did not yield any results, our kasambahay's did.  Eons ago, there used to be an upholstery shop which did "silohiya" near the church a couple of kilometers away from our street.  But that disappeared.  But our undaunted kasambahay decided to do a walk-through of the area and asked around.  What do you know.....she found the craftsman (or at least a descendant thereof).  So, she asked him to come over to the house and we showed him the living room set that was in need of repair.  Fortunately, we agreed on a price.  He'll be back tomorrow to start working.  (Looks like a pretty tedious job.  It will take him a couple of days to weave on a seat of just one of the chairs.  So, we're looking at five days, at the least, for the project.  No wonder these guys are a disappearing breed.)

I've been through many computer chairs. The cheaper ones break own easily. That's why I prefer Sigma. Somehow they seem to be more durable...or am I just being lucky with them? You can check out their website and Facebook account and inquire where they have the chairs available. The last one I bought, which I'm using in the office, was bought in True Value. And they're not really expensive.

Look for a stolen/2nd hand digital watch if your budget is 500 only. Or try those kids watches at toy stores.
if i could find a batman watch at that price at the kid stores, i'd be happy. lol but in all seriousness, are there no watches available for 500 pesos or less? i mean, all i want is something to tell me what time is it, nothing fancy.

@seph
last year sa HMR (malapit sa toyota sta rosa) meron mga heart rate monitor watches 790 petot lang. Ewan ko lang kung meron pa to date, hindi na kasi ako napapadaan dun.

naku layo sa amin. sa san pedro ako. di ko kailangan ng heart rate monitor kasi kaya ko naman kumuha ng heart rate. talagang watch lang ang kailangan ko.

Post by: ris on February 01, 2014, 09:35:56 AM
sa 1k mo na budget i think madami ka nang choices na watch.  brand new pa. 

regarding fake watches, minsan battery lang ang problema kaya tumitigil ang relo.  meron akong relo dito na galing timezone which i won after 2 swipes only (php32 total cost).  okay parin naman sya.  kahit yung battery di parin na discharge.  yung isa namang watch na nakuha ko din sa timezone sira na kaagad after a few days lang.  meron pa nga ako 2 watches na tumigil nalang kasi out of battery na.  di ko na pinalitan battery kasi mas mahal pa battery kesa dun sa relo at di ko naman ginagamit.  hahaha!  i just recently realized that i won a total of 4 watches from playing that redemption game from timezone. lolz!

kung malapit ka sana sa 168 meron dun mga magaganda na relo na pasok sa 500 na budget mo.  baka dalawa pa mabili mo.  maybe you could check out makati cinema square if you would be okay with fake watches.  basta sa experience ko isang beses lang ako nasiraan ng relo at factory defect pa yun.  but the thing about me also is maingat din ako sa gamit so im not sure kung durable ba o dahil maingat lang ako

Tatagal rin naman yan. Most of them are on display for a long time so if they conk out they should have done so at the start. Kung may Daiso or Japan Home malapit sa inyo meron minsan binebenta na cheap watches gaya nito:

If I run I'd def get one w/ a heart monitor (cheap strapless), to make sure you're still in the zone for whatever training cycle you are in, endurance, intervals, stamina, such and such.  That's if I run, which I don't lol.  I bike, so the strapless one which requires you to use both extremities is kinda hazardous when your limbs are already preoccupied with teh handlebars.  I was going to buy the one w/ straps at HMR (which were cheap) but for whatever reason the sensor corresponding to the watch was missing, so didn't buy it.

don't worry, sir, i have taken the heart rate of hundreds of patients as a physical therapy intern. i am quite adept at it, and i can take my own.

That and "Yale" hardware beside it, altho Yale is more spendy.) Or any hardware that's got industrial goods will have it- it is used to braze metals together.

LOL. Good one on the cement powder.

My particular problem is that ants crawl on the cement ceiling right above our dinner table.  When I found some of them crawling through the space around the light bulb fixture, I drew a circle of chalk around that area.  Then I "boxed out" the area right above our table so that ants coming from the ceiling edges cannot crawl towards the light bulb.  However, ants still appear seemingly from out of nowhere around the area protected by chalk.  Either air currents are lifting them up to the ceiling or there are really tiny cracks that I haven't found yet (that, or some form of ant teleportation).  It's driving my wife crazy and now she's driving me crazy...

try blowing/sprinkling chalk powder on the ant's body so they can bring the powder deep inside their home all the way to the queen. Try to find the queen and kill it as well - she is the source of your problem.


If you find their nest, try pouring gallons of hot water. I've done all this before and it almost always makes them go out of their nest.

I always try not to take antihistamine tabs but when the going gets rough, I can't resist taking a pill. I hate taking pills.

so after a few internet readz, i've come across "netipot" and this --> "Nasalcare". I was wondering where I could get the nasal care in the PH so I can try if this thing works.

i've been managing allergic rhinitis all my life and I have come to a point that i'm effing pissed off at the situation.


Am prone to Rhinitis too, especially when am in manila where i notice my nostrils would be black when i wipe it. Rare days of unclogged, no-drama nose are memorable for me. One was the few days after appendectomy when the good surgeon had me on some thermonuclear-grade antibiotics (effin A!!!! No wonder some people abuse it and which is why the increasing ineffectiveness of antibiotics to "superbugs" appear to be some impending silent worldwide disaster but i digress.)

...and the day when i swam in the (fairly) clean sea of puerto galera- i had a constant runny nose before the dunk then suddenly i was healed like some bible narrative. (!!!) Better than flixotide baby! It's like if i could live there, the quality of life and longevity would be better.

    So in essence, nasal irrigation works. There are recipes of salt and baking soda but for my needs, just distilled water with the hintest of salt, warmed up for comfort is good enough for me.  I just use an ordinary sports bottle with the pull up spout. Adidas? New balance? Or what sports store, i can't remember where i got mine but it's  not hard to find. Maybe there's a snazzy alternative in the baby section (BPA free, silicon spout, UK made Avent or Japanese Pigeon?)  but having used mine, i don't hanker for more. 

(http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTBPcIBafHvjGKuaQuWQfMQzvzyGD4l7kVwa_239BasG-tbXg9K)


I think it's more of the flushing, not the ingredients that makes it effective. But should one find himself in an inconvenient place a basin is far, like in a bus, when the nose acts up, a saline spray in the backpack (~50 pesos over the counter at mercury drug) is at least better than nothing.

HTH!

Have you tried Salinase Nasal Spray? It's isotonic saline solution. Should be effective if it's just nasal irrigation you're after.

Meron online. Hindi ko lang alam kung meron sa tipong deeco niyan. Wala na ba ibang in yung TV niyo? Baka pwede mag converter ka na lang


It's a 32" Sony Bravia and all its inputs are in the rear (unlike other TVs na nasa gilid ang ports for easy access).


Pang DVD videoke (which I doubt has HDMI out) use lang so I think picture and sound quality isn't much of an issue.  For watching videos, we always use the USB input.

My dad and I both had allergic rhinitis (awful colds every time we woke up in the morning). His rhinitis was totally gone after he worked for about a year in Saudi and mine went away when I stayed for a couple of months in Japan.  Not sure why but in our case the change of air somehow "cured" it.

The only "cure" for allergies is to totally avoid the allergen. In your case, wala yung allergen sa mga lugar na pinuntahan niyo. I don't suffer from allergic rhinitis in Japan, even during their "spring allergy season" (when the pine trees release their pollen) because I'm not allergic to them. But once I set foot in the Philippines I immediately start sneezing and wheezing within a few days. My professor also suffers from allergies in the Philippines and in the US (he thinks it might be from a similar grass or plant in both locations) but never in Japan.

In my (and my dad's) case, it never returned even after returning to the Philippines.  Last time I had rhinitis was 17 years ago that's why I considered myself as "cured"  There's still hope @athlonfan. :silly:

Ok, so I bought a set from Amazon but wifey's relative got delayed going home :( . I searched at Sulit and found a seller who posted 2 days after I placed my order at amazon but more expensive. I bought it anyway out of desperation.

(http://hunt4freebies.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/NeilMed-Sinus-Rinse-Bottle-Kit-w270-h270.png)

So I tried it, at first IT IS VERY UNCOMFORTABLE! it's like you accidentally-sniffed-water-from-a-swimming-pool feeling. they don't tell you this anywhere lol. Anyways, I think it worked, 2 days after the "irrigation", I haven't felt my rhinitis and seems like breathing is much "smoother" than before. On the 3rd day, rhinitis was back so I did the irrigation again. 2 days of non-medicinal comfort is better than no comfort at all.


edit: I did some calculations and this *might* turn out cheaper than claritin.


claritin= about 50php good for about 2 days
nasal irrigation=comes out approximately 40php which is also good for 2 days.

ive read bad reviews from botchi santos.  this is in regards with their website.  he does give his honest opinion about things.  but tries to point out the good points on each car rather than enumerating bad things.  but sadly, he seems to be a mitsubishi lover.  so he doesnt seem to say anything really bad about mitsubishi even if some people have been saying them already.  maybe you could check out the website sometimes.  i do not read much on their magazines so i cannot compare. 

ive actually read a tg uk magazine from a scan.  and it seems they really are direct to the point with their good and bad points.  i remember reading clarkson saying that toyota is not a good car to have because its very boring while honda engines are such a waste because the "racing" engine is being used for city driving.  something to that effect.

Reception The Mirage was met with negative reviews in Europe, Australia, and North America. Matt Jones of Top Gear (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Top_Gear_%28magazine%29) magazine rated the car 2 out of 10, commenting that "it's truly, profoundly terrible. The steering is slow and vague. It rolls extensively. Grip levels are non-existent. Every lump and ruffle in the road is transmitted directly to your backside. It's inexcusably noisy. Hell, there's so much slack in the steering that you can't tell which way the wheels are pointing..."[51] Top Gear also placed the Mirage on its list of "The worst cars you can buy right now."[52] What Car? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/What_Car%3F) magazine gave the car two out of five stars, citing that "there’s loads of wind noise and many rivals are better to drive. The interior feels cheap, there’s limited adjustment for the driver and Mitsubishi has a disappointing customer satisfaction record."[53] Auto Express (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auto_Express) also rated the Mirage two out of five stars, commenting that "the vague steering and poor handling place it at the bottom of the class for driving dynamics, while the interior looks and feels cheap. It's also quite expensive to buy and lacks the refinement and practicality of the best cars in the class."[54] Ollie Kew of Car Magazine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Car_Magazine) also gave the car a two out of five star rating, describing it as "too below-par to drive and noisy at speed to recommend in a class that contains the VW Up (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkswagen_Up) and its brethren, and it feels the heat too from the better-value Korean opposition."[55] Sam Wollaston of The Guardian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Guardian) gave the car a Cool Factor rating of 3 out of 10, commenting that it "handles and corners like a bloody jellyfish."[56] Peter Anderson of The Motor Report gave it two-and-a-half out of five stars, commenting that it is "neither the best nor the worst in its segment, but is closer to the latter."[57] The Mirage ranked third in Edmunds.com (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edmunds.com)'s 100 Worst Cars list.[58] Consumer Reports (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consumer_Reports) placed the Mirage among the 10 Worst Cars of 2013.[59][60]
The Mirage was awarded the "2012–2013 Car of the Year" by the Car Awards Group in the Philippines.[61] Top Gear Philippines rated the car 18 out of 20, and stated, "For the single person or young couple on a budget, the Mirage is still the sweetest deal in town."[62]
TGPH can't be that exceptional.

i think tnt2 has also mentioned that it "was" the best car during that same year.  kaya nga nagkaroon nanaman sya ng kaaway kasi may nag quote ng post nya ilang taon nakalipas.  sabi ni tnt2 na di na daw good choice ngayon ang mirage.  it seems it was the best during that year.  but currently, its one of the worst choices

For leather, I use Obenauf's or Sno-Seal. But I don't know if one can source them locally. Maybe you can check at www.galleon.ph.

For suede, any which one of those aerosol shoe sprays. But these are not constantly available. The 3M Fabric Protector would probably be a logical substitute.

I saw some commander brand cable that's 15meters being sold for WTF 899 pesos. And then another at 30 pesos per meter (sounds like too much?). I remember back in the day, I bought a box of CAT5 from Rising Sun for less than 2k which we used for our seminars. Am I now grossly mistaken when it comes to prices or should I go to Gilmore just to get a cheap price?

Reading the descriptions of this item, these boxes come with a prepaid SIM card. It seems some channels will be encrypted and become pay per view kind of deal. The SIM allows for a means to collect.

I don't know if it legal to do so but it will set a bad precedent if allowed. It's understandable kung cable service but over the air terrestrial (as opposed to satellite) broadcast requires a public utility franchise. There are conditions for those licenses to be granted. If over the air broadcast becomes as clear as cable, there will be less people subscribing to cable. Sky cable is looking for something to replace lost revenue.

Abs is selling\promoting this from barangay to barangay and cost only 700 which includes 3 sim cards with 200 load each. It's like getting the box for 100. I have brought 2 and gave one to my dad. The quality is as good as cable.

If my understanding is correct, if you brought your box from abs, you will get the abs encrypted channels automatically ( Cinemo,Yey,kchannel, dzmm ). But if you get a non abs Dtt box, you'll only receive abs and abs sports. I haven't heard about the pay per view yet.

The load is for the abs sim, totally unrelated to the dtt box. AFAIK since they can't officially sell the box yet, what they did is create a promo by selling 3 sim with a bundle of the box.

So 2 weeks before Christmas, my wife and I dropped by Hobbes and Landes in Shangri-la. There were a lot of toys on sale and we got a sweet deal on an Eitech toy.

Ace Hardware, Handyman carries them... not sure about the brand name though - SuperLube or LiquiMoly I think.

One more thing I've been looking for.  You know those small round magnets glued to the back of stuff so that they become ref magnets?  Where can I buy just those kinds of magnets?  They don't have to be round.  I just need a bunch of small magnets.  Hope somebody and help me out.

i suggest that you just ask the staff on those shops instead of looking for them yourself.  especially since other members here have mentioned already that its available there.  and also, since there are different shops listed, i suggest you do not buy immediately first and look around for the one that liked best

Even some National bookstore branches has got those, in the glass desk with beakers and lab equipments. Or olx/sulit- i once chanced upon a brass thermo-hygrometer there, the type installed on ships so it's pretty good.

I'm on the ocassional hunt for a bargain triple beam balance type of weighing scale.  .1gram resolution, 2.5kg capacity, so robust it lasts generations of HS students. (I swear i'm not doing anything illegal.) The usual "Fuji" seen in palengkes rusts and don't last long. Maybe a digital "tanita" is more than enough for me but i don't know if it'll last me a lifetime like a triple beam would.

Re: the magnet discs.

Had to do groceries on the way home from work today.  It so happened that the SM Hypermarket that I go to also has a Japan Home Centre outlet.  So, I took my chances.  Lo and behold, they had stocks of the magnets that had eluded me for several months now.  88 bucks for 20 magnets.  Not bad at all!  Thanks, lahar.  And thanks to all those who gave their suggestions.  I will still go to those places and look up the magnets....if not to buy, at least to compare with what I have already purchased.

I just love this thread.

Most of the pressure cookers that I see in malls are the ones with 1 long handle on the side.  We've already gone through 2 or 3 of those since the seals/gaskets get deformed after just a couple of uses.  Or perhaps I'm just buying the wrong brands?

Thermal socks are available at the local Uniqlo stores (branded as Heattech), as are gloves, underpants and undershirts. I still don't get why they sell these in our 30C and 80% humidity climate. The Coolbiz and Aerism line however is really effective.

If there's no wind, then 4 degrees is still tolerable especially if he's out brisk walking.

Very sensitive lang yata talaga sa lamig ang mga Japanese kaya lagi silang naka-jacket. Nakakaantok nga sa offices, malls, and transportation nila during the cold months dahil mainit sila kung mag-set ng thermostat (warm like being in a closed room while ironing a stack of slightly damp clothes).

the only thing I hate with this style is the whole eyeglasses gets a bit heavier and with my sweaty face, lagi nadudulas sa ilong ko yung salamin.

naging uncomfortable sya at di ko na rin nagamit ng matagal.

I don't understand when you say "ultra-thin/multi-coated lenses cannot be dyed a dark color", it is totally possible nowadays. For the last 4 years, I am buying coated prescription lenses. nakakaipon na ako ng kulay (black, green, brown, light blue tints).

Ang requirement lang ay dapat di gaano curved yung glasses mismo. medyo flat dapat. meron ako na wayfarer na green tint with prescription (nawala na syempre yung RayBan brand sa upper right corner)

I don't understand when you say "ultra-thin/multi-coated lenses cannot be dyed a dark color", it is totally possible nowadays. For the last 4 years, I am buying coated prescription lenses. nakakaipon na ako ng kulay (black, green, brown, light blue tints).


Really?  I asked 2 optical shops (EO and Ideal Vision) and both said they can't make sunglasses from multi-coated lenses. Saang optical shop ka nagpapagawa ng colored lenses?  Baka pwede kong subukan.  If they can make shades from ultra-thin lenses then my problem is solved. :happy:


Sa optical stores meron niyan. Comes in 2 variants, clip-ons and magnetic.


So far kasi sa mga optical shops na napuntahan ko (mostly sa south metro manila) wala silang binebentang ganung style. I thought perhaps it's already gotten out of style.  I actually have 1 slightly-used frame at home with the magnetic clip-on. Problem is, it's already a bit too tight around my ears.

ah, asa ibang bansa ako ngayon. pero nakapag-pagawa na ako sa pinas dati.

Kinausap ko yung optometrist sa EO ata yun (SM North branch). namahalan ako sa mga frames nila so bumili ako sa i2i ng style na gusto ko tapos dinala ko sa kanila. year 2008 ito.

yung last 4 yrs na sinabi ko ay dito na sa australia yun nangyari.

siguro kulitin mo lang yung mga optometrists.

transition lenses?  do you want shades or would you be okay with it going dark when there is sunlight hitting the lens?  yung clip on na shades meron dapat available sa mga optical shops.  depende nalang din sayo kung gusto mo yung style

I already considered photochromatic lenses (a.k.a. Transitions). Problem with those lenses is that the change in color is triggered by UV rays. Since the glass windows of vehicles pretty much blocks UV rays, it is not fit for use as shades for driving.  Actually, merong Xtractive Transitions na magwo-work kahit sa loob ng kotse pero nasa 30k ang price range according to the optometrist that I spoke to.


I'll try other optical shops. Thank you all for the replies.

You could just cut and splice the existing wire. Bale, putulin mo anywhere sa gitna tapos dugtungan mo ng ibang wire. Stranded copper wires with the same thickness ang bilhin mo sa hardware. For a cleaner splice, magtanong ka na rin ng connectors na pwedeng pandugtong ng wires. Get some electrical tape too. Any competent electronic tech (even the guy who will install the cams) can do it for you.

It is for a project but I don't need a TTL converter, I just need a straight DB9 connector/terminal for raw data transfer from one module to another. I just wanted one with a terminal block so it would be easy to rewire each module without having to desolder and solder each wire.

If you want to be adventurous, then hidalgo (aka camera street) in quiapo. IIRC price is almost half and you can get the more sophisticated charger or eneloop variant.

Heads up: It's great that some extension cords have built-in usb ports now. (Newstar brand, available say, in landmark.) Looked it up and i read that a 2.0amp charger will charge a .5 or 1amp device, no worries.

For removing dust bunnies from the motor, I just use a vacuum cleaner and a small paintbrush. WD-40 for lubrication. If your fan motor powers up but won't spin (stuck up), the bushing probably needs replacement.

I have used PTFE lube with great success, but then that is what i got here. More important is that you need to clean then lube BOTH bearings front and back where the whole armature is spinning on. Meaning, I had to remove the plastic shroud, that protruding knob in the back, unscrew the gear housing to get into it. But it's not complicated.

Half hour job at most, felt rather rewarding, achievement unlocked.

anybody know where to buy a coffee dripper?  plastic or ceramic doesn't matter as long as its not super uber (rip-off) expensive.   I read somewhere they have it at daiso, checked it out but out of stock ATM, cheap too it said at less than 100 pesos.  The ones I've google cost about 500 bucks to 3000.

I've checked three japan home centers nearby, they don't sell them but maybe its a branch thing (others might).  P88 store I'll be sure to check those out. 


I might as well buy a coffee grinder too.  Geez these coffee accessories sure are expensive.

Where can I buy earphones with mic (like handsfree) for Lenovo laptops? Kahit 3rd party brand. It's for Skype calls. Much better if it has noise - canceling microphones.

My wife currently use the handsfree from a Lenovo phone but it seems the wiring has loosened so there's only sound on one ear. Her Lenovo laptop does not have separate jacks for sound and mic (most new laptops don't seem to have those anymore).

Handsfree from Samsung, ASUS and iPhone aren't compatible with Lenovo. I believe someone here already explained the standards in handsfree.

I could cut and resolder the wires but I'd rather not risk making it worse since it's mission-critical to her online job.

http://ph.rs-online.com/web/p/processor-microcontroller-development-kits/8968660/ (http://ph.rs-online.com/web/p/processor-microcontroller-development-kits/8968660/)

There are other local vendors who can deliver faster or from a physical store albeit at a slightly higher price.

Circuit-Help's shop is at Katipunan Ave., Q.C., in front of Miriam College. It's behind the Mercury Drug Store.

Appliance stores (saw one at SM and our local Starmall/AllHome, Phillips-brand, priced at sub-P2000). If you want used, try the neighborhood Japan/Korean surplus, pero halos same lang sa brandnew ang price and madalas 100-110V pa.

Where can I buy good rechargeable AA batteries? And the charger itself? And what brand?

I've been looking for Eneloop but I've not been paying attention to the market now.  I see Panasonic branding and Sanyo branding.

The Panasonic-branded ones should be newer, since they took over from Sanyo in 2013. Back in 2014, there were a few reports of performance problems with the Chinese-manufactured Eneloops (http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?392229-Japanese-Vs-Chinese-Eneloop-Cycle-Testing-Results) 1 (http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?398463-Panasonic-eneloops-vs-Sanyo-eneloops) 2 (http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?392229-Japanese-Vs-Chinese-Eneloop-Cycle-Testing-Results)  though. Fujitsu's HR-3UTHC are basically re-branded Japanese-manufactured Eneloops since they took over their factory.1 (http://famcart.blogspot.se/2014/07/the-evolution-of-eneloop-and-fujitsu.html) I saw a bunch of sellers on OLX selling Eneloops, then I found one with a price list for both Panasonic Eneloops (http://starmarkph.com/price/cameras-computer-gadgets/panasonic-eneloop) and Fujitsu recharchables (http://starmarkph.com/price/cameras-computer-gadgets/fujitsu-battery). The store also sells smart chargers from Panasonic and Fujitsu.

I found some La Crosse BC-700 smart chargers on OLX, but they seemed a bit overpriced. They're really good chargers, but it's annoying that a completely discharged cell shows up as null initially.

I was going to suggest IKEA's LADDA 2450 mAh batteries (http://www.ikea.com/sg/en/catalog/products/70303876/) as well, if you had friends in Singapore, but price was only slightly cheaper than Eneloop Pros from the OLX seller I posted above.1 (http://www.provideocoalition.com/ikea-batteries-eneloops-disguise/) 2 (http://lygte-info.dk/review/batteries2012/Ikea%20Ladda%20AA%202450mAh%20(White)%20UK.html) 3 (http://jwsoundgroup.net/index.php?/topic/27794-new-ikea-storhogen-charger-test/) 4 (http://budgetlightforum.com/node/47233)
Title: Re: perpetual WHERE can i buy thread?
Post by: barurutor on August 25, 2016, 06:14:08 PM
For chargers, get Maha or Lacrosse brands.

Don't know what's the current hotness for AA batteries though, but eneloops are solid quality. GP Recykos are cheap alternatives, but they are slightly larger than standard AA size which can be frustrating with certain battery holders.


The ikea rechargables are highly regarded, though only slightly cheaper than equivalent eneloops here in SG, but the ikea charger itself is a decent buy (SGD30).

Little OT:

If it's just a few pages, I usually use Office Lens for iOS. The app corrects distortion and makes it look like you scanned the document.  Saves it in PDF or JPG.

If it's a lot, or you do this on a regular basis, I suggest you invest on a scanner with a feeder so you can actually leave the pages on the tray and not scan them 1 by 1.

Slightly related: Sulit na sulit yung HP Printer ko na 4645e kasi meron siya ADF so no problem copying even legal-size docs. Also since cartridge type, kapag barado na bili na lang ng bagong cartridge. Madumi lang mag refill (inject) ng ink pero mas ok ito kesa sa brother printer ko na once nagbara, papalitan mo na yung head (o bili ka na lang bagong printer).

I read that print heads burn out eventually if kept running while running on empty or clogged. The liquid ink serves as its coolant.

I'm not seeing any heat shrink tubing at true value glorietta. But i bought some before at true value megamall, comes in packs of about 12" sizes. I use a butane (or propane?) torch meant from making creme brule to shrink it, but a soldering iron works in a pinch as well.

Sa Deeco raon, they come in big rolls and they have an assortment of sizes. Hth.

You can try 3N Copy Systems. I once had them scan a full size A0 blueprint into a pdf digital format. I know it's the reverse of what you want but they most likely have the equipment to do that. They're at Shaw Blvd. right across Shangrila Mall.

^^^The RC servos for the steering may have broken their gears. Many of the gears are made of plastic and are easy to break. You can easily find replacement for those RC servos locally. They can be bought from RC shops or even those that sell electronic goods.

There are services that you can ship to in the US and in turn deliver here.  Note that Amazon will still charge you taxes depending on the state you ship to.  Then there are the shipping charges and VAT when it gets here.

Aside from Alexan, where else could I buy an IC trainer kit? It's for a computer science student. Since they're studying logic gates but have no basic electronics knowledge, they need a kit (composed of a power supply, breadboard, some switches and LEDs,clock generator, etc.) for their hands on projects.

The ic trainer kits that I see through Google are from India. I already messaged Alexan via their fb account but no answer yet on how much and if they're still selling it.

Update: Nevermind. Alexan sells their trainer for 2250. With a separate kit of components for less than 400.
