2018 is awesome year. I feel like I’m moving just a little too fast.
So, I finally got a new laptop. My old one is an Asus i3 with 6GB RAM. It’s already 2 years old. but still works really well, but I got a new job, and it uses several tools that need a lot more RAM, Encryption (Win 10 PRO). So, I bought a new laptop.
So, stuff has happened, and 2018 is here. I’ll keep it simple.
Sorry for all the late emails, I’ll try to reply to all today.
Thank you for all friends and families who helps and visits 🙂 I love you all.
Well, I started it around two years ago. And in two years I lost around 10 kg (22 lbs). So on average only 5 kg/year. It’s great. But not really.
So, On January 1st, 2017. I moved to a new place. It’s a small house kinda in the middle of nowhere.
In 2016, I was always moving from one place to another every couple months and rent small room on monthly basis
(like a grass-hopper, jumping around from one place to another)
I’m old af. And failing at everything.
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.
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.
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.
I feel that I try to do too much this time. Not only I’m busy with client work, but I also have tons of unfinished project. It’s time to be honest and list all what I want to do and prioritize my tasks.
