Lack of updates

July 7th, 2011 Comments off

Yes, I’m well aware of the lack of updates to my blog these days. Mostly due to lack of time, focus, and whatnot. My focus is being scattered at this time I really am not sure what to do with this blog.

Always be prepared.

March 13th, 2010 Comments off

This popped in on my proverbial doorstep. And so I looked into it as it sounded somewhat familiar to what I had to go through when my dad was diagnosed with cancer and later passed away. And if you know me, you know how I feel about end-of-life issues. It’s nice to know someone in the media understands what kind of emotional hell it is to watch someone die. And as much as it is a shameless plug, it’s also nice to know that someone in the media understands why you need end-of-life discussions. As much as people don’t want to have that talk, as much as people don’t want to think about it, it is a necessary ordeal. That preparation is something everyone should have because you never know. And Americans in general, don’t seem to know or understand that this preparation is something people should have when the time comes.

People don’t know or understand that you and your loved ones can choose what course of action to take when you become ill. You and your loved ones can choose to what treatments or care to try, or whether to try any at all. You and your loved ones can plan this all out in advanced and that’s the point of end-of-life discussions. If you plan this out, you won’t need to try an guess what to do next. You can have that piece-of-mind that you and your loved ones know what to do if and when the time comes. You can chart out what to do and when to do it. But Americans just listen to the “catch phrases” without actually researching and figuring out what it is those “catch phrases” actually are which makes this all the more disappointing. You can prepare for the worst while hoping for the best but people don’t seem to understand this.

DLink DPR-1260 printserver dropping wireless

January 17th, 2010 Comments off

For anybody who’s ever been using a DLink DPR-1260 print server and have it drop wireless constantly using WPA or WPA2, here’s the solution:

It’s using TKIP for its WPA alogrithm first, then AES. Every time it tries to sync with your wireless, which seems terribly short from my observation, it will try TKIP first then AES. If you only use AES, it will be wash-rinse-repeat every time it attempts to sync. If your router has an option to use TKIP and AES at the same time, set it to that option and you should be fine.

Too much nostalgia

December 17th, 2009 Comments off

Maybe it’s me but as I’m reading some forums, I find that vocal minority being kinda bullish about remembering stuff from when they were kids. “It doesn’t look like the old series” or “That’s not how it looks like”, or the infamous, “OMG, they just raped my childhood!!!!”. Maybe it’s just me but don’t you think it’s time you joined the current day and move on? Most movies based off comics or some old franchise DO NOT translate well from their medium to film. Even a film like Watchmen had to change some things to look right on screen. Stuff as flashy as that probably won’t work too well on screen if they did a look-for-look interpretation. And really, don’t you think it’s time some of you people move on? We’re talking about shows from the 1980s which are now moving to new mediums of entertainment. Maybe it’s because I’m getting older (which I admit, is probably where this is coming from), but come on people, stop hoping and waiting to relive your childhood. You ain’t young anymore. Your childhood will always exists in DVD/Blu-ray discs and that ain’t going away.
