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

oDesk Test (English Spelling)

Took the oDesk English spelling test and got 80%.  Pretty silly test. That’s what spell check is for. A lot of the words being tested on is not commonly used either.

Holy the oDesk PHP test was pretty hard. Bunch of functions I never used. Didn’t even pass.

$12B Border wall?? WTF


We better not be building this dam wall for $12B. Stupid policy is starting.


SWGOH: Heroic AAT Raid completion

Our guild, Dead Man Ewoking, finally completed the Heroic AAT raid.  The officers of this guild are great. They spent time looking through everyone’s roster to coordinate what teams get sent to what phase.  We had tried twice before in December and November.  It really helped that the newer people recruited have crazy good rosters.  We were actually stuck around 10% and an unintentional mercenary finished it for us.  He had joined thinking we could easy defeat HAAT and left after he finished it.

I’m an average middle of pack in the guild so not too shabby.  Bad part about being in this guild is feeling the itch to spend $$ to keep up with everyone.

CA Marijuana donations

I wonder how many people are actually on the fence about an issue about legalization of marijuana.  I figured most people would have strong opinions based on their previous history with/around marijuana.  well there is that 50% of people who never used it so maybe they on the fence?

Anyways I thought the $$ spent in CA on marijuana legalization is pretty nuts.


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.



New Netgear AC1450 Router Speedtest.net Results

I have an ASUS Win7 i5 with 6GB ram and the speedtest results from my desk is 27.23 Mbps / 12.24 Mbps (Down/Up).

From the location on my desk, I ran it on my work computer, Macbook i7 8GB ram had speed of 117.68/11.47.

From Samsung Note 7 table, 53.76/12.41

From Ipad Mini v1, 28.62/11.89

Wow, need to get a new Wifi adapter.  Amazed that the Macbook is killing my laptop.  Good to know it is not the router than.  The Macbook speed is the same speed as my notebook connected directly to modem so that’s good news.
