About Me

Chad Estioco is, as of this writing, a man in his twenties who still plays with plastic swords. He jumps while other people walk and codes while other people sleep. He has a music box where other people have their temporal lobes. He also finds it very hard to understand why other people will like anything more than chocolate ice cream.

When he is not coding or jumping around, he travels to faraway places like Cimmeria, Middle Earth, Narnia, The Dreaming, and Hogwarts. He feels quite sure he can reach them, if only he can find the right wardrobe or train platform. Several angry wardrobe owners and quizzical looks from ticket inspectors have passed and he is still to succeed.

About My Machine

I use desktops mostly, until 2008, that is, when I entered college and found out that I can use the time between my subjects to code and got my first laptop. While I know that desktops will always pack more power than laptops, due to space and other constraints, I’ve stuck with laptops mostly. Maybe I’ll get a desktop when I encounter a problem so difficult I’d need all the computation resources my money can buy. But I feel that unlikely.

I used to use Windows, being that that is the OS a lot of people I know were introduced to. March 2010 I took the plunge to Linux Ubuntu and I’ve been at it since then. I still keep a copy of Windows in my machine, for those (rare) times Linux doesn’t scale up to my needs.

Machine Specs:
Unit Model: Acer Aspire V3
Processor: Intel Core i5 (2.5GHz) with Turbo Boost up to 3.1GHz.
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M with 2GB dedicated VRAM
Operating Systems: Linux Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) and Windows 8
