Moved Servers and Directory

I moved the files into this URL: The old is now gone. Please update your bookmarks if you were using that defunct URL as the homepage of your browser.

But if you bookmarked the main domain,, then there wouldn't be any problem--that domain automatically redirects to

Thank you for your patience, and patronage!

Milestone: GreenTips, EcoTwits and Wackiness

Whoa! Today marks another milestone: The greentips reaches 200 unique original tips personally concocted by me. They are unadulterated and unrated, so watch out for some wacky ones that might pop up randomly. They now link to ecotwits, as well - with additional details about the tip (if any). Plus, the greentips (a.k.a EcoTwits) now has its own URL, so you can forward it to your friends for reference, or simply to laugh about. Here's a sample.
Also, the EcoTwits Widget has been approved by Widgetbox, so it is now included in their directory. For those who have been clamoring to install the greentips on their own sites and blogs, you may now do so using that widget.
EcoTwits now has 15 twitter followers in a span of less than a week! So why dont you join the bandwagon and follow EcoTwits as well.
And lastly, EcoTwits now has its own blog. Hurrahh! Its not much yet, but I will be aggressively developing all these things like a mutant octopus.

Spin-Off from Green Tips: EcoTwits !

EcoTwitsFolks, I noticed something about the Green Tips: They actually look like tweets! Or that they may make good tweets! Most of them are naughty, funny, witty, wacky, short and sweet--quite perfect as tweets.
I decided to send these Green Tips as Tweets at least once a week via Twitter. And not only that, I just realized that not only bottles and paper can be recycled, but webapps as well! So I will try to make some widget out of it.
But for now, I'd like to introduce you to a spin-off from iBlackle's Green Tips. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you EcoTwits! The greatest thing that ever happened to ecofriendly tweeting!
You may follow EcoTwits to receive these updates via Twitter. Or you may install the EcoTwits Widget in your own blog and/or website.

Green Tips now reaches 150!

My self-compiled green tips now reaches a total number of 150! Most are wackier than ever! But still relevant and practical enough to save energy, avert global warming, and reduce carbon emission.
My favorite original green tip is still the same: Turn the lights off when making love.

Dance for Earth

Earthling, if you don't yet feel a sense of oneness with the earth just yet, at least maybe you'll feel it among its crazy dancing inhabitants. :)
I've learned the Dance step myself. Maybe I'm going crazy but I feel like crying if I just sit still.

The 11th Hour

The 11th HourI watched The 11th Hour several times, learning that it is the Global Awareness to Environmental issues that must be spread to the public before a massive action can take place to avert global warming. Failure for the whole of humanity to take action can further increase the Earth's temperature to a few more degrees - further amplifying climate change. And you've seen what the continued climate change can do - flooding, more powerful hurricanes, and deadlier tornadoes, landslides, drought, animal extinctions. These are the effects we are reaping now because of our continued reliance on fossil fuels which releases more CO2, our destructive practices such as deforestation, and dumping toxic wastes that kill the oceans.
A few more degrees of increase to the average surface temperature of the earth can throw of the Earth's balance in a destructive way against man himself.
It's actually not the planet that we must save but humanity and life itself, because Earth can and will recover...when mankind is gone.


Fight Global Warming from the Heart of Humanity

Fight Global WarmingFor those who would like to know more details about how climate change and global warming is destroying our planet and hurting us, please visit
It's strange, but its really not global warming that we should fight: its the culture of consumerism and the apathy to the environment that we should fight. The battle begins in the heart of humanity.

Earth Day 2008

The Earth Hour came, now Earth Day cometh! Let me be a li'l ridiculous now by saying Earth Year is next! Let me beat them to it because I'm sure all the skeptics will point that out. On Tuesday, April 22, 2008 I hope you'll take time to enjoy the Earth on that one fine day, whether you love the earth or not.

When the Parody becomes the Parodied

I couldn't believe my eyes. I thought that Google hacked my iBlackle logo! Google finally turned their search page into black! And take note of the message at the lower part. It seems so like iBlackle!
The snapshot you see of the Search Giant's page will probably last only an hour, but it will forever be in the annals of iBlackle's history!
What makes me so happy is that Google supports environmental causes such as Earth Hour.
And in this particular case, the parody became the parodied, but for a wonderful reason. Environmental Awareness!
Now, what are you waiting for?! Turn off your lights!
