New Writer Introduction: Markku Seguerra

Filed as Uncategorized on December 12, 2006 11:20 pm

By now, I’m sure you’ve all heard about the recent sale of the Blog Herald from Matt Craven to Bloggy Network Ltd. As promised by our new editor, there have been several sign-ups of writers, contributors, and columnists — and I’m one of them!

Before I start blogging regularly here, allow me to use this entry to introduce myself. I’m Markku Seguerra, another Filipino blogger just like Abe Olandres and J. Angelo Racoma. You probably haven’t heard of me, but you may have come across my personal weblog called “rebelpixel productions” over at I’ve been writing about web design and photography for more than four years now and have coded several WordPress plugins and related applications. Reading my weblog will surely be a better way of describing me and the things I do.

Surprise, surprise

When I heard the news that Abe (Yuga to us Filipino bloggers) will now be running the Blog Herald, I was excited at the development; seeing a fellow pinoy blogger and friend making waves internationally. Little did I know that he was looking for a third blogger from the Philippines to join him and J. Angelo. He sent me an SMS last weekend asking if I’d be interested; now I’d be a fool to pass on the opportunity to write for a resource I’ve long admired and followed, right?

Looking forward

In the coming weeks, I hope to share what I know on the technical and social aspects of blogging. I will throw in some details of web design, accessibility, and the content management side of this practice as well. More importantly, we will continue to bring you fresh news and information, in line with what the Blog Herald has always been known for.

    I will assume that first comment is the DarlersPT bot spamming blogs now …

    XRumer is a software application that automatically posts your messages to forums, guestbooks, bulletin boards and catalogs of the links (as well as into livejournals and wiki). In a word it is an autosubmitter. Currently available version is 2.9. More info about updates…

    Software can perform registration at forums (if necessary for posting messages) and automatically fill in the required fields. Upon successful registration XRumer posts the user-specified message and/or links.
    The powerful built-in proxy-server checking script locates available proxy-servers worldwide, choosing anonymous addresses among them.
    Software is able to work with lots of different types of forums and guestbooks: phpBB and PHP-Nuke with any modifications, yaBB, VBulletin, Invision Power Board, IconBoard, UltimateBB, exBB,, wiki, different types of bulletin boards and even custom-written code.
    Attention: unique feature – software works around EVERY possible type of protection from automatic registration, including:
    – Pictocode protection (tickets, captcha), which look something like: “Enter the number you see in the box”. Details…
    – E-mail activation protection. Details…
    – Java-script protection. Details…

    During the process of posting a detailed log is created with precise path-links to posted messages so that you can check every link and every posted message afterwards.

    Thanks HART … the involved-community widget, I find, is even better than Akismet sometimes ;)
