House of Squared: 2,000 Visitors in One Month


Yesterday, House of Squared has reached the 2,000 Visitor mark after less than a month of moving to WordPress. Hooray for tags!
I was not able to put up a new post for a week now as all I had were short topics so I’m going to place all those topics in today’s post!

Topic 1: AGI Returns!

After a dozen employee were retrenched last November 30 and a few Programmers last January because of “Financial Loss”, Anino Games is once again looking for 3D Artists and Programmers!

So it seems that they are able to acquire a few projects that their current number will not suffice. I’m wondering though how they became undermanned. Usually, when companies retrench people, they make sure that there is still enough manpower to handle projects. Does this mean that they currently have more projects than they calculated? Did they over react with the retrenching? Were there malicious intent in the selection on who would be removed? And was it really a legal, DOLE-approved retrenchment?

To those companies who plans to do a retrenchment, please read this article about PAL’s mistake:

It was  a good thing for AGI Management that most of my AE friends really wanted to resign before 2009 and the retrenchment pay was just a bonus to them. If they didn’t want to leave, they could have filed a complaint to DOLE.

Topic 2: Eraserheads Reunion Concert

I really wanted to go, but I forgot that it was on March 7 and I have not included it on my budget. 

Then, I won, on a Smart-sponsored concert, 2 Bronze Ticket, a day before the concert. Unfortunately, I only have 100 pesos left in my wallet, just enough to get to the concert and back to the apartment. No funds for food and anything else. So I decided not to go.

Something that an officemate noticed, why does someone close to the band dies a few days before the reunion concert? It was Ely’s mom (or was it his grandma, I forgot) last August and Francis M last week.

Topic 3: Francism

It was a very sad news last Friday when Bloodporn announced in the office that Francis M is dead. In my opinion, Francis M is the only Filipino rapper worth listening to because of his nationalistic theme, political views, and the lack of perverted lines in his songs. If the Eraserheads is the most significant rock band, then Francis M, without a shadow of a doubt, is the most significant rapper in the Philippines.
