Departure of a great helper

趕快收起晾著的衣裳,
不是怕下雨;
仔細查看每個抽屜,
不是怕失了東西;
再次看那聖誕咭,
不是忘記了內容。

趕快努力收拾心情,
最終收不起淚水;
仔細了解東西怎樣安放,
最終只肯定失了一個好幫手;
再讀那聖誕咭,
最終只能確認失去...

天氣突然變冷


天氣轉冷,風雨飄搖,街角暗處,垃圾站旁,清潔女工,獨坐一角,殘羹飯餸,形單隻形。

基督降世,捨尊降貴,無權無勢,走進人群,治病趕鬼,卻遭戲弄,釘身十架,榮耀反彰。

寒窗苦讀,稍有所成,時勢造就,恩主引領,學主樣式,卻未死透,苦苦掙扎,恨不成器。

飯後路過,有感而發,亂寫一通,九唔搭八,借題發揮,未能釋懷,祈禱天父,爬著跟隨。


催人太快的世代

天下萬務都有定時,但這世代卻催人走得太快。

未出生,卻已經要找學校;未上學,卻已經要認字;未學懂,卻已經要考試;未滿師,卻已經要畢業。

未夠班,卻已經要獨自挑起擔子;未有經驗,卻已經說資深;未適應,卻已經想轉工;未幹完,卻已經想要退休。

未會生產,卻已經要享受;未出糧,卻已經要消費;未買樓,樓價卻已升得高不可攀;未供滿,卻已經想換樓;未破損,卻已經要換新的。

未了解,卻已經一起;未愛過,卻已經離婚;未懂得為人子女,卻已經為人父母。

未選擇,卻已經錯了;未起步,卻已經乏力;未開始,卻已經注定失敗。

未長大,卻已經老了...

Zopo 958 maintenance

After eight month of very active usage, the on/off switch failed.

I should remind you all that even I've installed an app to turn off the screen without using the on/off switch, but still, the switch failed eventually.

I kept on using it a few days after the failure of the on/off switch, since I can always turn it on with the home key and I could turn the screen off by using that app.  However, one day when the battery drained, I couldn't switch it on again without pressing the on/off switch!  Of course, if I could keep charging it before the battery went flat, it's not a problem.  Anyway... I could no longer switch it on since then.

I've tried to use the backdoor like to press the volume down button and insert the USB charging cable, and yes, it could be turned on, but it only kicks me to the factory menu and so it was still no useable.

On the next working day, I took it to the local repair center.  The service is not bad, the queue is short, and it's rather close to MTR station.  Better than Samsung I would say.   They had sent my phone back to the factory for repairing and they asked me to expect two weeks.

In less than two weeks' time, I've received a call that my mobile is ready.  Good services I would say.

In order to avoid using the on/off switch, I will use the scheduled power on/off feature of the mobile.  In case the switch were dead again, it will turn itself on according to the schedule.

The "Samsung T118" Tablet

It's being marketed in taobao or some other online shops, the price is exceptionally low for a tablet with its advertising specifications.  It's just too good to be true, and thus, it's not real indeed.

To highlight a few:

1. It's not really from Samsung

2. The LCD has low contrast which could be frustrating when compared with modern LCD.  The viewing angle could be rather limited.  The color depth and dynamic range is rather poor.

3. The CPU is not quad-core as advertised, it's dual core only.

4. The CPU is not as fast as advertised, good only for simple applications, could be a bit slow by modern standard.

Here is a snapshot of the benchmark result:




Having said that, it's a very good deal as long as you could live with the above.  The bottom line is, you got more than what you actually paid for.

On 淘寶, 電子產品, 順豐, 香港

On the contrary of what you can see from the Internet, the above combination is possible provided that the seller declares at the custom properly.  It just add complications which common vendors are not willing to spend the extra-effort.

即係話, 順豐可以發電子產品嚟香港, 只係個發件人要報關, 仲要去特定地點寄件

Deactivated 18650 battery

One day I found that one of my 18650 failed.

I tried to use apply a 9V across to wake it up but failed, I tried to put it in charger but it shows full charge.

The last resort is to remove the protection PCB which is extremely easy like below:


And it works again afterward, and I'll buy a small mobile charger with protection circuit and place it inside to extend its life.
