The PLDT Screen of Death (PSoD)

For PC users, one of the most feared computer errors we encounter during an important project or recently installed software is the Blue Screen of Death—BSoD for short.

BSoD is an error screen displayed on a Windows computer system after a fatal system error, also known as a system crash: when the operating system reaches a condition where it can no longer operate safely. -Wikipedia

When this happens, our computer starts to be unreliable that we may lose important data and corrupt system files in the storage discs.

Same goes with our Internet Service Providers if the connection suddenly crawls in times we needed it most!

Commander Cody: 6" Star Wars Black Series

6" Star Wars Black Series Commander Cody
This figure review is kinda' late because the 6" Black Series Commander Cody #14 was released somewhere in 2015. I got mine on the same year, took photos but never wrote until I felt, man I should review this figure.


Battle of Utapau in Revenge of the Sith
Commander Cody was one of the clone armies formed from the genetic template of Jango Fett, a bounty hunter. The clones troopers were deployed across the galaxy to fight against the droid armies during the Clone Wars. Commander Cody was then under the command of Obi-Wan Kenobi but later turned his back from the Jedi master because of his indoctrinated loyalty to Chancellor Palpatine who ordered to kill all Jedis (Order 66).
