Fixed: AW_Sarp2 (Subscription + Recurring Payments Module) conflict with IWD_Opc (Checkout Suite)

paypal-sarp2-error
If you’re using Aheadworks Subscriptions and Recurring payments with IWD One Page Checkout (Now IWD Checkout Suite), chances are, it won’t work without modifying IWD OPC’s module files. You won’t get redirected to PayPal, because you’ll get a message that says “PayPal does not support processing orders with zero amount. To complete your purchase, proceed to the standard checkout process.”

In order to use AW’s Subscriptions and Recurring Payments module, you need to activate PayPal Express checkout, then modify two files inside your OPC folder.

PayPal automatically converts USD to your local currency starting November 2016

If you’re surprised that you suddenly received Pesos (or your local currency) for PayPal funds that you usually receive in US dollars, then don’t be. Because just recently, this month, PayPal automatically converts USD to your local currency. It’s their “new feature”.

Don’t be pissed off if you are expecting US dollars from your friends and family, then you receive it in PHP. Because that’s how it works. However, you can still receive your funds in USD, if you ask your friends/family to send funds using the Goods and Services method (even if you didn’t sell or rendered any service to your friends. Haha). In this way, you can still receive US dollars, with a fee.

Too bad, everything now is with a fee. PayPal is awesome! So let’s not complain for this change, because it’s inevitable.

Sony Xperia C5 Android 6.0 bluetooth disconnection problem

android-marshmallow
Just last week, I updated my Sony Xperia C5’s OS to Marshmallow 6.0. It’s an old OS, but it’s the newest free update from Sony Xperia, without rooting your phone. Everything seems fine, until I found out that Bluetooth is not working properly after the update.

Once you connect your Xperia to any Bluetooth device, it disconnects automatically after 7 seconds (sometimes 8 seconds). Then if you attempt to reconnect it again, it disconnects again. Too bad for me, I cannot find any solution that works for my device.

Formidable Calendar Custom Time Slots Per Hour of the Day

Formidable form building is one of the best and most extensive, fully customisable, WordPress plugin out there. You can create all types of forms you can think of. From a simple contact form, to a complex booking form, or even a full-featured user database with lots of filters and search features.

But even if Formidable Pro is this powerful, there are still some things that Formidable Pro cannot do. One is allowing different number of slots per hour of the day. Out of the box, Formidable’s calendar and time field can let you limit the number of slots per day by a few lines of code.

Bomb Explosion in Roxas Night Market, Davao City, September 2, 2016!

bombindavao-sept2016
Yes, that’s today. There’s a sudden explosion here in Davao City. I thought it’s just thunder even it’s not raining, but it’s actually a bomb. I’m inside Marco Polo 5th floor when it happened. I didn’t see the explosion, but I see a lot of people along Roxas. The explosion happened at exactly 10:18 PM local time (GMT+8) according to the Marco Polo staff I’m talking with right now. I wasn’t able to take a video, but will share it in this blog once I found one online. Be safe everyone. Photo above by @jboygonzalessj of Twitter.com. Check out his twitter of live photo and video updates.

Galaxy Note 7 Release Date in Singapore and Philippines?

galaxynote7
Because I’m currently in Singapore (sometimes in the Philippines), I’m now looking to upgrade from S7 Edge to S7, after finding out that it will be released this August 19, 2016, world wide!!!! Yep, the newest Samsung flagship phone has this stunning iris scanner, which is suppperrr awesome! I don’t know if this is the first phone with an iris scanner, maybe there are other china-made phones that I haven’t heard of that already has this feature way before Samsung integrated it with their latest phone model. And oh, the Note 7 is built for a better VR experience. The new, all-black “Gear VR 2” will be released together with the Note 7. And yes, it’s safe to assume that it will work exclusively with the Note 7.

Coraleen Waddell is now video blogging!

corawaddel-youtube
Yep, she’s now into video blogging. My number one crush in the world is now video blogging. Subscribe to her channel now at youtube.com/channel/UCAMlaS8ELTqpQDrt46PdKJg. She now has 16,574 subscribers as of August 6, 2016, with more than 100k YouTube views in her 3 videos. Latest video was uploaded yesterday. Her vlog is fun to watch, even if she’s just talking about random stuff that you might not be interested, anyway I’m interested in all that she does. Even if she just eats, or sleeps, or just babbling random things about make-up. I just love her, and I know you will too!

Kickass.to is dead, but there are mirror sites like dxtorrent.com, etc

As we all know, Kickass just died 24 hours ago. The owner of the site was arrested by the he U.S. Government 24 hours ago. It’s all over the news. If you still don’t know about the news, just click the “all over” and “the news” hyperlinks that I just typed before this sentence.

kickassalternative

Right now, I’m using dxtorrent.com and thepiratebay.org as Kickass alternative. Just last year, I switched to Kickass because PirateBay was down. Now, it’s back up, and Kickass became the #1 torrent site in the world. All leading Torrent sites easily get noticed, that’s why it’s now down. Haha!

Anyway, if you have any other suggestions on Kickass torrents alternatives, please feel free to leave a comment below.

PS: Here’s a reddit I found online about Kickass alternative. It’s worth checking out!
