Updating my neglected blog to WordPress 5.0 and Gutenberg

Neglected, not abandoned. Yes, archondigital.com is still very much alive. I’ve been as always, consistently inconsistent with updating content on this for as far as I could remember. A lot of this has to do with me being busy (I’ve given this excuse here numerous times too) but that really is what it is, I […]

passport.gov.ph – Expired SSL certificate on the PH Passport Portal for the past 12 days

A public portal used by citizens for passport applications (passport.gov.ph) suddenly becomes unsecure due to an expired SSL certificate and no one can do anything about it because, bureaucracy. Last May 12, 2017, the SSL certificate of the Passport Portal of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) here in the Philippines expired. I noticed this Thursday […]

Review: Webfaction hosting still sucks

Eight years on Webfaction and I’m still hosting my sites with them. So yeah, Webfaction hosting doesn’t suck at all, sorry for the click bait. I only mentioned ‘Webfaction hosting still sucks’ as an inside joke within friends since we don’t really have much to complain about.

We used to go and shoot the streets of Manila together before he became ill. Eugene’s battle with cancer is not yet over and he needs our help now more than ever. Eugene recently […]

End Impunity. Our freedom is under siege.

I’d hate to admit, but even as I try my best to not delve into political commentary, the situation everyday compels me to write about what is on my mind. This random image I took yesterday of the National Press Club’s compound from behind a barbed wire fence further convinced me that I should start writing […]

Mr. Bean playing Pokemon Go

This is how Mr. Bean would look like if he played Pokemon Go. Hey Internet (err, social media), just when I thought I’d let you go, you come right back at me with this. Update: I’ve been getting some traffic on this page for people searching for Archon Pokemon Go and I’ve no idea what […]

The Jesus cabbie #ihateMondays

Starting to change my schedule to an early morning one by taking my kids to school, so this in effect revives my #ihateMondays series again because of the commute. That, and I’m off to a meeting in two hours. Status update | 19 June 2016 Jesus cabbie Music was comforting, you close your eyes and all […]
