Ever since I found out about the source code highlighting feature in WordPress, I have become uncertain about using the Motion theme in Hack.Origin.

Yesterday, I have decided to do a theme rotation to suit the blogs better.

Lightstreams will now use the Tarski theme. I thought the theme is best suited in this blog because, seeing as how the blog is called “Lightstreams”, I thought, that the blog should have a lighter feel.

Lights, Wings, Flight, which I felt needed a change of themes, will use the Motion theme. I know WordPress has introduced a few more themes after Motion but none of them felt like I can use them for this blog.

Though, the theme poses some problems for me, they’re easier to deal with than having to deal with using a theme that I don’t love.

And, Hack.Origin, which needed the change the most, will now use the Monochrome theme which was previously used by Lightstreams.

This was due to the fact that the source code highlighter uses a white background for the source code space – which is very reasonable. Motion, which has a dark shade, does not match well with the source code highlighter.

Thus, the rotation has been set.


One anniversary in the music world comes around the time Haiti got one of history’s worst natural event.

Today, the video of the new version of “We Are the World” has been launched in support of Haiti.

No matter how bad this might sound, I am amazed at how we humans still come together in the aid of those who suffer. If only we have more of it… 

2010. The beginning of a new decade. For most of us, a new year always symbolizes a new beginning – a new day; a time to restart and hope for a better year.

However, it is not the case for everyone. Most especially for Haiti. The year is just beginning and the country has already been hit by a very devastating earthquake that hit 7 in the Richter scale. News tell that about 3 million people were affected by this quake.

Thousands of lives ended. Millions more broken.

Havoc, desperation, and grief are among those that were left for the survivors.

Ironically, times like these are some of those few moments when we can see that humanity still exists in some of us. Hope can still be found.

The international response, so far, has been generally positive. We cannot deny the fact that the world is putting on an effort to help. Even the Philippines, which just recently faced an angry volcano, is also trying to help.

This is when we can say,

Somehow, there is still humanity.

“Is there any good in this world?”

– Sylar

“There is good, there is evil; right and wrong; heroes and villains. And if we’re blessed with wisdom, then there are glimpses between the cracks of each. Light streams through. We wait in silence for these times. When sense can be made. When meaningless existence comes into focus and our purpose presents itself. And if we have the strength to be honest, then what we find there, staring back at us, is our reflection bearing witness to the duality of life. And each one of us is capable of both the dark and the light, of good and evil, of neither, of all. And destiny, while ever marching in our direction, can be rerouted by the choices we make, by the love we hold on to, and the promises we keep.”
