Of course something happens to the car same day of blog post

Later that night, I was planning to go to a friends house.  I drive down the street and notice the car feels pretty bumpy and making some weird noise.  I pull over 5 houses down, get out, and notice that back driver side tire is flat.  I tried to pump it up and it wouldn’t even inflate.  Therefore I had to change the tire.  I was hoping to get another 5K from the tire.

Next morning I go to a neighborhood tire shop.  Turns out another one of my tires has a nail in it.  That tire is worn out pretty unevenly.  A tire guy at Wal-Mart had told me something about that but didn’t think much about it.  Turns out the Prius needs new shocks and struts.  Quoted me $750.  Dam


Wow time flies

Finally got around to getting my WP blog site back up.  My web server renewal occurred in Nov and haven’t got around to getting the site back up.  Now I’m on a digitalocean droplet.  Figured I’d be hosting multiple sites so might as well get a droplet instead of only getting web hosting space.

I did lose some posts from the migration but don’t even remember what it is anymore.  The Updraft backup saved me.  I thought i exported to XML but couldn’t find the file anymore so I had to do a DB restore and since I changed URL of the blog things got all screwy.

Looks good so far and hopefully I’ll have more updates.  Though the goal is make a better landing page for mitchellfang.com

What to say when stopped by police

“Excuse me officer. Are you detaining me, or am I free to go?” If the officer says you’re free to go, leave immediately and don’t answer any more questions.

Panda Express: No Free food w/o purchase

At Panda Express today because they are giving out free surf and turf.  You didn’t even need to buy anything to get it, just show up with a coupon on smartphone and you can get free food. Not a smart idea. Made the line long and maybe half the people were there only for the free food and then left.  That sucks for the company and that sucks for customers who are waiting.   Panda should’ve made it people buy something like some kind of combination in order to get it.   I think soda would’ve made it even longer wait for people to pay for soda.

I’m just saying I’m all for free food but I’m ok with some strings attached.
