Rate My Setup

Today I sold my Asus Zenfone 5 for $50.  I bought it 2 years ago for around $200.

For the replacement, instead of getting a better phone. I bought $80 Hisense (chinese) budget phone. And I also bought cheap $15 bluetooth game-pad. And I’m very happy with it.

It’s amazing how fast technology accelerate. My new phone is faster and snappier with less than half the price of my old phone.

Wifi Booster using Android Phone

Yesterday, I rented a work space. 5x4m , bathroom, AC, for kinda-an-office (I heard that separating work-space and house can improve productivity).

But apparently the wifi signal sucks. It works but sometimes the connection in my laptop stop for no reason. It’s not disconnected, but simply won’t open any webpage like there’s no connection. Updating driver, changing device setting, etc don’t work.

But it works fine on my mobile devices.

So, I try to use my android phone USB tethering feature and apparently it works like a charm. So the phone will get the internet via wifi and transfer it to my laptop via USB. (So, my phone works like an USB Wifi Adapter).

Works well on my old android phone. Nice and simple solution. So, if this happen to you, and you have unused android phone, you can use this method.

Note: I tested this method with Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) / 5.0 (Lollipop) and Windows 10 laptop. No additional driver needed. Just plug and play.

How To Full Backup Windows 10

Several days ago, my old secondary laptop (Win 7) suddenly crash. But I did a full backup several months ago. I simply restore it, and everything is up and running again.

Then I remember that I never do full backup on my new laptop (Win 10). Windows 10 have a weird backup system and I’m not familiar with it. So, without further ado, here’s how I do full backup on Windows 10.

Short Korean Drama Series For Your Precious Time

I watch a lot of Korean Drama. Probably around 50+ titles so far. It’s my guilty pleasure.

I watched several US series like “Friends”, “How I Met Your Mother”, “Big Bang Theory” and all was fun only in first couples season. If the series is popular they will keep it going until it turn bad and no one enjoy it. They will end the series with a bad after taste (most of the time).

I prefer Korean Drama because usually only contain one season and that’s only 12-20 episode. But series in this list is even shorter. Only max 3 episodes.
