Dropbox installation error 2

I faced these twice, once on a new Windows 10 machine and another occasion on a fresh re-installation on a Windows 8.1 Pro machine.

A simple google search reveals nothing useful, for example, running the offline installer.

But then the no-brainer solution works flawlessly, i.e. do a Windows update.

QED.

Camping Head Lamp 露營頭燈

The first one is the cheapest, using 3 AAA battery.  I used re-chargeable ones and they work great.  

Not very bright, but enough for hiking and camping. 


The second one is nearly double in price, using a single 18650 battery.   It is exceptionally bright and the lighting area is huge, that's great when you setup your tent in the dark.  Excellent for hiking and camping, but if you jump around, it might turn itself off and you will have to switch it back on again manually.

It features a motion sensing mode, so that you can swipe your hand in front of it to switch it on or off.


And that's why I brought this one from Nitecore, more than double the price of the second one, and  it's lighter!  It features a red LED in the middle which could be useful for stargazing, but then it's a bit too bright for that purpose.

It has a built-in rechargeable battery and no problem of turning off even when you jumped around.

grcpool and wallet update

I did some mining on grcpool, since I had been doing seti@home and similar stuff anyway.

Upon payout from grcpool, I found that my wallet was not updated at all.

And after much research, I am confident about what I did was probably correct and through the process, I understand the whole mechanism more.

Then after around two days of time, I found my wallet was updated. 

Just to keep this note to everyone, and please be reminded that it could take one or two days, or even a bit longer.

Keywords: grcpool, wallet not updated, payout not received, wallet failed to update, grc, grc mining

反光風繩

買咗新的風繩好耐,但無心機剪,懶得搞。

但去咗幾次露營後,發覺有反光都好重要,唔使掛燈仔,帶少啲野。 所以的起心肝搞,呢度分享一個我諗好多人都識既技巧,就係剪完啲繩頭散開,可以用火機燒一燒:



靚晒!

馬鞍山昂平營地


今次原本預算馬鞍山站打的上燒烤場或甚至係馬鞍山村,奈何我們找不到的士,結果竟然一口氣從港鐵站行上去,還每人帶著 5L 食水,因為我們知道那營地是沒有食水供應的。

本來我們可以從燒烤場,或甚至是馬鞍山村取水,但因為我們部份人沒有水袋,所以只好老遠搬過去。

不消兩小時到了,大家體能都不錯吧!

是次目的是測試自己遠行能力,營幕取用三峰一人金仔,輕便但空間狹少。另一方面,我又帶了天幕和天幕杆,也帶了兩支行山杖,方便行山和起天幕。

另外,今次特意用了酒精爐,煮了頗多食物,一支大酒精足夠有餘。

賽後檢討:

1. 今次帶了那個真空壺冷藏了丸和蝦,保冷程度極好,那些冰塊一直健在!

2. 新買的個人保溫袋大概只可以用一晚時間,包類隔天還可以吃,大概因為是冬天吧!

3. 18650 頭燈不能承受輕大震動,否則會因為接觸不良而自己關掉

4. 新天幕杆跟金仔營配合不錯,但外帳拉鏈可能未能拉上,要再了解  -- 已解決,下之上山影張相就明

5. Alcos 小桌子在斜坡上頗難運用,特別難配合酒精爐,有潛在危險 -- 基本上解決了,主要問題係風擋會移動

我對自己負重遠足頗有信心,似乎去東灣絕不成問題

露營小蒸架

去得多咗露營,就會開始諗唔同食譜,今次當然係諗蒸...早餐唔一定要食頹面,但又唔想太複雜,咁點好呢?蒸包好似唔錯吧。

本來想買蒸籠,但又懶帶大件野,所以就諗蒸架,咁就要同個煲夾一夾:


Perfect fit!  過兩日試咗再 post 上嚟


反轉個架放底,然後放兩個杯互套,中間放埋酒精爐都仲得。杯與煲之間仲夠位放一支鹽、一支油。

--

第一次用後感:

1. 帶上山會比較重
2. 原來蒸野用好少水,速度亦快


日後可能會蒸點心做早餐,好過煮面食。

Remarks: 酒蒸爐下面有墊架,唔好直接放草地,免得傷害啲草
