UPDATE 08 OCT 2017: The files linked here were lost. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the original files in my backup files. Thank you to all that have emailed me about the dead links, without it I would not have known I am losing files from my previous projects. I am sorry I cannot help you at this time, until I recover the files I have here.

Downloadable Cost Estimates (use Export option): Cost Estimates of 2S BLDG
Downloadable Specifications: Specs of 2S BLDG

This is my designed MS Excel program for estimating a 2-storey residential building of duplex type; I also included the specifications I used for the said building.

The format used is from Gammatech Construction Corp. YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO CLAIM THIS FORMAT AS YOUR OWN. Please ask for permission if you plan to use this specific format.

The program is still in its primitive state, so if you are planning to use this as your reference, please send me a copy of your improvised program [this way, wisdom is shared ;-) ].

Check If Your Email Account Details Has Been Leaked

News article: Anti Public Combo List with Billions of Accounts Leaked by HackRead
        There is now a platform called "have i been pwned (HIBP)" created by Troy Hunt from Australia, where we can search if our email addresses and accounts are included in "combo lists". These lists contain email address-password pairs.

Searchable database of the combo lists: have i been pwned? (HIBP)
        Search your email address and it will tell you how your account is compromised. It will tell you if your email account is included and in which websites e.g. Yahoo! It will also tell you if your email-password pair is being shared publicly (aka 'pasted').

Learn more about HIBP by the author's blogpost

Here are things I think I should do when my email account has been "pwned": 
     1. Change password or delete the account that has been compromised
     2. Check for details entered in the account e.g. credit cards, IDs....
     3. Change password of the email used in the account, especially if they are the same [never do this, by the way]
     4. Employ a password generator machine, like what is suggested by the HIBP author

Any more suggestions, or updates? Let me know!  (and consider donating to HIBP)
