A better phone or a better laptop?

Posted by on Jul 12, 2013 in Updates

Okay, so I’ve been thinking about this for a long time and I really want a new phone, but I also really want a new laptop. I can only afford to choose one of those two options that I have and it’s bloody difficult. This is the laptop I’m thinking of getting: Processor – Intel Core i5 3230M – 2.4 GHz RAM – 8GB Hard Drive – 1 TB Operating System – Windows 8 (64-Bit) Optical Drive – DVD Super Multi Graphics – NVIDIA GeForce GT 635M Graphics Memory – 2 GB Cost: £539.86 It would be quite the upgrade from my current laptop model: AMD A4-4355M processor Windows 8 Memory: 4 GB Hard drive: 500 GB AMD HD 6520G Graphics Memory – 2 GB £430.00 For the record, the AMD A4-4355M processor is a POS. I bought this laptop a year and a half ago and from the very start it wouldn’t really run certain...

Biting the silver bullet with AdSense

Posted by on Jul 6, 2013 in Updates

I very recently cancelled my AdSense account; this was to do with not being able to be paid and I slowly built up a significant tab, which I was not able to withdraw or cash-in on. A couple days ago I decided to, essentially, bite the bullet and close the account. I mean, why continue building up cash, when you can’t withdraw it. The only way I could see myself withdrawing it is if I went back to Taiwan. Now, unless they owed me $2,000 then it’s simply not worth going back. I had built up around $100 — which is somewhat significant and is of course something that I worked hard in getting. If you’re reading this, you are probably asking, why did you close your AdSense account that still had around $100 dollars in it? AdSense does...

Travelling into Central London

Posted by on Jul 3, 2013 in Featured, Travel, Updates

There are perks with living in every country, but then there are general things that you discover that make working somewhere a pain in the butt. When it comes to working/interning in London, the transport aspect of life goes downhill once you start traveling at peak times. Just imagine a train packed with people, with the train stuttering at many points, and constantly stopping at different stations for a 30-40 minute duration; and because of the fact there are so many people, there are no seats, expect cramped conditions and definitely don’t expect the air conditioning to actually do its job. On that last point, I actually questioned myself as to whether I should bring my coat to work. It’s abysmal, and there is probably nothing that can be done to fix this situation because packed trains mean profit and...

Another design update

Posted by on Apr 1, 2013 in Updates

I’ve changed the design, yet again, as I wasn’t happy with the previous design. The real reason I changed designs was due to the bad SEO that the other design had and it seemed that it was over-bloated more than anything without giving any real reward in terms of search engine optimization. It’s definitely a nice design and everything, but the SEO aspect fails in that regard. The new design on the other hand has many more options to feature articles that are hidden from the front-page, thus any hidden articles are also shown on the front-page and receive more attention thus will rank higher in search engine results. Photography website update I have also updated my photography website; although, that still need working on. I’m almost finished in completing it, but I’m quite sad with the result that I’m getting as the...

New design and organisation

Posted by on Mar 16, 2013 in Updates

From yesterday to now I’ve been spending time on a new look for my blog. I think I’ve done a decent job and I like the new look and theme that is designed by a group called Elegant Themes. (I use their themes for all of my blogs as they look superb) This is 2013 now and this place needs more organisation and a better look. Which is why I’ve also introduced two new categories and they are: Travel & Programming. I have also introduced a coding resources page with resources to where I’ve linked to other sites where you can learn how to code in various programming languages, which is what I’ve been doing recently. Slowness I realise that the site is slow and I’ll be honest by saying I have no idea why. It’s nothing to do with...

Life update post

Posted by on Jan 31, 2013 in Life, Updates

I am sure I’ve made similar posts to this post about my future. The uncertainties, the worries and the “What will happen… questions”. But, I’ve decided that I would like to make a return to the UK to study again or to simply go back to work! I can leave Taiwan in  March/June/July as that is the period that I can stay in the Taiwan; unless I want to do Taiwanese military service, as I am Taiwanese, as well as being British. I would have done the military service last year (I actually wanted to do it then), but I feel that I’ve wasted a year, so I’m no longer interested in doing it and I really need to get studying/working before I become too old and become useless. Returning to the UK won’t be easy, let’s just say that...

Protected: Thoughts

Posted by on Dec 2, 2011 in Updates

I feel like a failure in so many different ways. Coming to a foreign country was a big step for me and now that I'm in this country, I still feel like a failure and don't feel as if I am moving forward in life. I feel like I'm standing in one spot not doing anything even though I'm trying desperately to change my situation.   I'll bullet point why I think I'm a failure, it will give me something to chuckle at in the future:   I'm not making any money In the past, I have spent a lot of cash on trying to start online ventures which ultimately were failures. Although I can say they were learning curves for life, I sure did spend a lot of money on what I consider as nothing.  I have never...

Republican presidential race US

Posted by on Nov 26, 2011 in Updates

  Although I am British I follow US politics as it is somewhat interesting and the debates which occur are to me, very alien. This is of course considering the candidates answer questions in absurd ways, have very little knowledge about most of the subjects which are brought up and to me, their views are skewed.    For example the leading candidates other than Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman (Although I wouldn’t consider a leading candidate), support water boarding, even though it goes against international, and get this, American law.   Just watching the full segment of the debates which occurred with Ron Paul also pointing this out, it seemed it didn’t bother them.   Then you had Mitt Romney saying that if terrorists go beyond the rule of law then they should be tried in such a way....

God does not exist

Posted by on Nov 16, 2011 in Updates

The best argument for an atheist when he makes the following statement:   "God doesn't exist." … and a religious person replies:   "Can you prove he doesn't exist?"   You say: The onus is not on me to prove whether he exists or not. It is you that has to provide the evidence for the existence for such entity since you claim it exists. I do not claim it exists, I purely dismiss having any knowledge of claimed higher being in the case of a human-made idea of such an entity. I merely state the fact that it doesn't exist on the same basis a wooden donkey isn't floating around in space right now talking to other aliens.    If I say there is a military type-war taking place in Switzerland, I made the claim, so I have...
