End of an era 時代的終結

A friend of mine told me last night that she would get a new TV for Digital TV Broadcast service. This reminded me the old Analog TV Broadcast service will come to an end effectively on 1 of December.

朋友昨晚談到要買電視接上數碼電視網絡,令我不其然想起舊式模擬電視廣播會在十二月一日正式停播。

Hiking Route – Tsing Yi Nature Trails 青衣自然徑

I normally went hiking in the Mount Parker country park, which is easily accessible and with sufficient distance as a workout. Hiking in the New Territories seems to be rare to me but I had one with my old classmates in Tsing Yi last month.

平日行山大部分時間都會到柏架山,主要是因爲交通方便又有足夠的路程。相對在新界的路線則較為少去,但在過去的十月尾便與老同學們到遠方的青衣島走了一轉。

Windows PC WIFI / Bluetooth Upgrade 無綫網絡/藍芽升級

Early in September, I had upgraded my old Windows based Intel NUC with a SSD. It ran swiftly for all my day-to-day works except one thing, Wireless network support is still missing. In case I would like to use the NUC as a multimedia player, this will impose some constraints especially on cabling and device placement.

早前為家中的 Intel NUC 更換了 SSD 後,日常運作已非常暢順,用起來亦很稱心。稍為美中不足是欠缺無綫網絡的支援,如要作其他用途,在擺位及網路配線上便較不方便。

Milestone 里程碑

On 18 October 2017, I published my first post on this blog.

For a typical techie like me, taking up blogging might seem a little bit wired and quite a lot of my friends were really surprised.

2017年10月18日,我在這裏發放了人生的第一篇文章。

對於一個從讀書、工作都是典型 Techie 的我,入手寫網誌是一個很奇怪的開始,亦令身邊很多朋友感到驚訝。

Long Forgotten 久違了

It has been about two weeks since my boy’s school resumed lessons. Other than having to get up earlier to take him to school, I have the luxury to have more spare time in the morning.

As we did not have any outdoor activities for quite a while, my wife suggested to visit the Mount Parker Country Park today.

不經不覺間兒子回校上課已兩星期多,除了要早點起來陪他上學外,早上卻多了些空閒時間。

很久沒有往外走,今天太太建議到柏架山郊野公園行山。

Let’s Talk About the 4:6 Method

Making a good hand drip or pour over coffee demands good understanding of coffee bean, grind level, coffee to water ratio and various pour over techniques, etc. Beginners or average coffee brewers like me will probably overwhelmed by the tremendous amount of information, jargons and techniques available over the Internet.

Divisibility Rules

Hello guys! It has been a long time since my last blog!

Today I’m going to share some interesting rules in Mathematics that is about “How to determine whether a given integer is divisible by a fixed divisor without actually performing the division”.

Windows PC SSD Upgrade 硬碟升級

I have a 6 years old desktop Windows PC in my home that is mainly used by my wife. However, as my little boy is getting older and needed to use the computer as well, it became quite inconvenient to have them sitting in front of the desktop. I ended up buying notebook computers for them subsequently.

Despite that desktop PC is a little bit old, it still got the works perfectly done if just for daily home use or web surfing. The only downside is the slow PC startup time and that’s why I decided to replace the hard disk with a SSD.

家中一台已購置六年多的桌面 Windows PC 主要是給太太使用,但隨著兒子長大並開始接觸電腦,要他們安坐書枱前便有點不太方便,於是便轉用了筆記簿電腦。

雖然這台電腦有點舊,但如只用作日常的資料處理及上網,它還是升任有餘。唯一不足處是開機時間稍長,最近便決定為它的硬碟升級至 SSD。
