Hoho. So I went to get my 10-metre LAN cable yesterday and set up my powerline adapters. Yes, now my bedroom is no longer a WiFi blind spot! The downside is that the WiFi speed is like 1/3 of the actual WiFi speed. Oh well… It is still much faster than my old ADSL broadband plan though. Well, I had a huge upgrade from my 6Mbps ADSL broadband (don’t ask me how I survived on such slow Internet speed) to a 300Mbps Fibre broadband. Now you get why I am so excited about my new broadband plan? Hehe.
Boo… My wordpress mobile app for both iOS an Android are still not working so I am still stuck at blogging on the good, old web platform instead. I actually asked WordPress support and see if they can fix the issue but it turns out to be an issue with Jetpack plugin. Oh well. I haven’t got the time to reach out to the Jetpack developers yet. Do you guys face any issues like unable to post blog posts or edit existing blog posts?
I guess it is time to clear all my backlog of admin stuff, along with the Jetpack issues, tonight.
On a happier note, I finlly got my Fibre broadband. Yes, I was using ADSL broadband for a really long time. So glad that I can switch to Fibre broadband for higher speeds now. Hehe. The downside? My bedroom is still the WiFi blind spot so that means I have to depend on my powerline adapters to see if I can pull the WiFi signal to my bedroom… I bought the adapters yesterday but couldn’t set it up because my LAN cable is too short. Sigh. Hopefully I get some time to get a longer LAN cable and try to set it up tonight.

Phew. I am finally taking some form of break (in terms of blogging) from my law exam revision.
I’m left with 3 classes of readings to cover this weekend. Hopefully, I can clear them soon.
Oh yes, Dynadot is having .com domain name sale. You can use this link to buy it and get additional US$5 off in your next purchase too!
I got myself a new .com domain name too. Hehe. Now I am thinking the new direction of the new domain name.
I went back to school to do my Network Security project last Sunday. Well, it was supposed to be a 4-person project but Pei Fang dropped the module just before we start working on the project proposal so it is only Alan, Jeffery and I left in the project…
Alan and I was in school since 11am while Jeffery joined us after lunch.
Oh, guess what? Alan and I met Prof Liang Zhenkai (our Network Security prof) at Macdonalds’ when we went there for lunch. Hahaha. Prof didn’t manage to recognise Alan but recognised me instead. Well… He was also the one who pointed my name on the attendance list during my class test to ask me to sign (i.e. knows my name). Lololol.
I think after Network Security project, I would have gained an in-depth knowledge of the math behind SSL, in particular the RSA key exchange variant. Guess that’s a good thing? Oh yes, in case you are wondering… We are working on a project related to DROWN attacks. I hope we don’t DROWN-ed in this semester…
In the end we left school at 9pm. What a tiring Sunday… Now I am counting down to next weekend…

I went to PC Show just now to get my hard disk for my Macbook Pro. It’s like the fastest shopping trip to PC Show since Rui Yun and I were rushing to catch our Beauty and the Beast movie. Yes, it’s that Emma Watson movie! Hahaha. That’s actually the main reason why I wanted to watch it and we planned for it months ahead. We originally plan to go on Sunday instead of Saturday but I am having my Network Security project meeting so have to pre-pone it at the last minute notice. Thanks to her for accommodating and also helping me to shop around for the hard disk so I can just go there and get it immediately.
I was talking to one of the salesgirl at Western Digital counter where I decided to buy my hard disk and this epic conversation came up.
Q: Which hard disk do you recommend me to use if I want to transfer files from macOS to Windows OS (points to the 2 different hard disk options for Windows OS and macOS namely My Passport and My Passport for Mac)?
A: Oh, that’s not possible. Perhaps you can consider the mobile wifi hard disk instead?
Moral of the story: Make sure you know the basics before going to PC Show to buy your stuff. Discounted prices don’t come with sound advice. Lololol.
Rui Yun and I were both amazed at her “sound” technological knowledge of the products that she is promoting.
Anyway, in the end I got the My Passport (for Windows OS) and bought it home to reformat it by myself and started using it now. Hehe. I saved S$10 and got a better looking case (it’s orange!) too. Hehe.
Oh, I have been posting quite a lot for someone who is supposedly on hiatus. Oops.
