I just started practicing maybe three days ago, but coach put me there a little bit just to run up and down. My legs aren’t there yet and I’m still feeling weak, but it’s an improvement from before.”It’s not just Dillinger, though, who needs some acclimatizing, as the Bolts also eye to blend in rookies Jonathan Grey and Ed Daquioag, new acquisition Joseph Yeo, and injured big men like Justin Chua and Rabeh Al-Hussaini to their system.“Bigger picture-wise, we got basically six guys that really haven’t played in our rotation, so of course, it’s going to take time to adjust,” he said. “We have a week before our next game so we got to figure it out.”ADVERTISEMENT “I need to focus on getting better. I need to focus on myself first before I can really put myself as a leader,” he said as the Bolts look for someone to take the role of captain left by the now-retired Jimmy Alapag.“I got to get better, I got to perform and lead by example before I can be a leader and start making speeches. You got to earn respect first before anything.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra teammates show love for SlaughterSPORTSWe are youngSPORTSFreddie Roach: Manny Pacquiao is my Muhammad AliDillinger was far from his desired shape on Sunday, posting two points and three rebounds in eight minutes on the floor in the Bolts’ 86-84 loss to Blackwater.It was his first game since returning from the hamstring injury he incurred in the semifinals of the 2016 Governors’ Cup, and the 32-year-old admits he is still struggling to find his groove coming from a long layoff.

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… GitHub really comes together for most users when you start talking about the social features. Every user and project has a profile (here is one for co-founder Chris Wanstrath, and here is one for the Ruby on Rails project) which tracks progress and participation. Users and projects also have public activity feeds which display activity on public projects such as commits, comments, forks, etc.Users have the option to follow specific developers or projects to keep tabs on their activity.Some might wonder what the point of a centralized host for a decentralized, open source product really is — i.e., is not Git meant to be installed locally? As Peter Cooper points out, “If you just want one reason why Github is relevant, it’s because the Web interface provides the connection BETWEEN hosted projects and the forks of them. Hosting your own Git repository is not hard […] but co-ordinating efforts of forking and merging amongst people you don’t personally know is tough. With a system like Github, it becomes a lot easier.”In other words, what makes GitHub special is the social aspects. With so many high profile projects already on board, it’s easy to imagine GitHub could be the next SourceForge. josh catone 1 Related Posts Tags:#Product Reviews#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Git is a decentralized version control system created by Linus Torvalds that is used by a number of open source projects, most notably perhaps the Linux kernel. GitHub is a new hosted Git repository service that’s being called a “social network” for programmers and with good reason. It also already has some high profile projects of its own on board: Ruby on Rails, Capistrano, Merb, Prototype and Scriptaculous, among others. “[GitHub is] the way SourceForge should have been,” gushed one beta tester.Git decentralizes version control by giving each developer a local copy of the development history, and then changes are copied from repository to repository. Because Git makes it simple to fork and merge code, it makes the system ideally suited to collaborative development projects. But what really sets GitHub apart, is not that it uses Git, but how elegantly it pulls everything together around a set of core social networking ideas.Though GitHub is a pay service with a business model aimed squarely at commercial development shops in need of a secure, hosted, version control system, the company also offers a generous free package that would be suitable for many open source projects. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more
