Chinese New Year 2011

Happy Chinese New Year (Rabbit-yummy)!

So the main question is: how many kgs have you gained this past week? Not that it matters, heh heh...

I didn't do much this year, just visited some people's open house, ate lots of nice stuff and experimented with the video function of my Canon 60D.

First of all, I went to Jna's tarping session at her house on the 1st day of CNY.



I also went to Sakuya's open house on the 2nd day of CNY, and there was MADness there as well. I brought along my friend's Mad Magazine board game and had a few people play it. We all laughed until we split our sides, had headaches and even had tears coming from more than one person during the session:



Hope you all had an enjoyable holiday.

Streamyx OK Pt. 2?

We had a TM tech come and change the wiring from the post to the house today (yeah, Chinese New Year 1st day) and the connection seems to be a lot better now. He came yesterday and did some diagnostics, but I guess he couldn't find anyone to change it, so he came today.

After changing the cable, he did another ping test to the server, and it seemed to be muuuuch better. Yesterday's ping was around 1700+ ms, and after changing the cable: 57+ ms.

I'll need to keep the connection on for another day or so, to see if there are any more complications.

Finally my downloads are back to maximum speeds again (for now) - yay!
