My New Water Tumbler.

Posted: 15 June, 2011 by kinz in At Random

Guys. I’ve got a new place to ramble.. Well I just created a Tumblr account to post photos daily. (Lets hope I will have the discipline to post a photo up everyday for as long as I can). I will still post about my photo shoots, video shoots, mini projects, outings, celebrations or what so ever right here. Just that I think Tumblr will be a more suitable place for me to do a daily photo blog.

Be prepared for my daily ramblings in photos. :p

Digital Tick Tock.

Hello there, again it has been a long while since my last post. I was supposed to blog about Nidji during the Nike City Cup Kuala Lumpur finals, however due to infinity amount of school work, I have left this blog abandone once again…

If you are following me on twitter @kin_meng you should know that I have been spending my previous days and nights working on my project.


Here is what I have been working on for countless days, nights and hours with my team buddy, Nicholas.


It is a Digital Clock based on TTL (transistor-transistor logic)


Now this can prove that I did my part…


Our finalized masterpiece.

Lots of drama happened moments before the due time. Both of us were in a very messed up tensed up situation. However, we managed to solve it and get it all sorted and running. I am glad it is all over now and I must say we have done quite a decent job…

Money, time and effort well spent.

Thanks Nic!

Time to go to bed. I have not slept well for the past few nights. In fact I stayed up in Cheras at Nic’s place till 4.30am for two consecutive nights. Two hours of sleep for the entire day and I am still alive. Time to hit the haystack.

Goodnight all and sleep well! Cheers!

Skin Deep!

Would you pay to torture and injure yourself? Apparently I do. I boulder (or some would say rock climbing) to get injure myself. Bruises, aches, cuts and skin rips are no longer stranger to me.

I’ve not climbed for 2 weeks, and I came home with two new friends today..


Say hello to my hands. 😀

Washing my face with the facial foam was a bitch! I could not use anything else other than my palm. I jumped up and down and left and right when I was washing my face.

I am a sadist. I pay to get hurt and I enjoy what I am doing… 😦

Two and a Quarter Terror Bites!

As most of you already know I was bitching and whining about my hard disk which crashed last month. Searched for a bunch of data recovery experts. They are either too expensive, (approximately RM1.2k-2k to recover a 750GB Hard Drive) or they are not able to help me.

Finally, I resorted to Google (about my problem) and I found out that I was not the only one facing such issue with my hard drive. Apparently my batch of the Seagate Barracuda 7500 has some issues with the firmware. Read a whole lot of tutorials on how to repair it yourself and lastly, I realized that Seagate provides a 5 year warranty and some of them mentioned that Seagate will be able to fix it for free. Not to forget the best part of it, the data remains in there, non altered or what so ever. Hooray… Contacted them via email last Wednesday, Friday a UPS rider came to pick the hard disk up from my house to be sent to Singapore. On Monday and Tuesday it was quiet, no emails or calls or what so ever.

I had a shocking phone call from UPS yesterday (Wednesday), stating that they are gonna attempt delivery in the evening. I was told to ensure that someone will be home to collect the parcel.

When I came home, the first thing I did was to open the package and check if my data is still intact.


Tadaaa.. Such a huge box filled with foam to protect the hard disk.. They took so much care of my hard drive.. ♥

My data is still intact. Woohoo.. I actually bought 2 more SATA hard drives on the following day when I discover my hard drive failed. They are for temporary and backup usage. 1 TERAByte and 500GIGAByte each.

Now..


…that my Seagate Barracuda is working again, I now have a whooping 2.25 Terabytes. Bite me! 😀

I will make sure that I backup everything right now. Losing all my photos (without any backup) is really painful. I am not gonna let that happen again.

Yeahooo!!!

I am a happy soul again. 😀

Now that all my photos are back again, I shall dig up some old photos to blog again soon. Till then!

p/s: I am really happy with the service Seagate has offered me. I am so thankful that my data is all back in here.. 😀 Great job Seagate! Kudos!
