A little lucky day

Monday, May 19th, 2008

Today I was in luck. What happened to me is actually something trivial in daily life but very rare. In the morning I didn’t watch weather forecasts to inform us that it would be rainy tonight, and went to our office by bike as usual. When I arrived at the office, my colleague told me what the weather forecast had said. So I managed to finish working and leave the office before it rained.

At the precise moment that I stopped my bike in front of my house, a delivery person brought a package to me. It contained the books I had bought on Amazon yesterday. It was just a perfect timing for me. Moreover, it began to rain gustily just a few minutes after I entered my house with the package and my bag! It was my lucky day.

Setting up my home server again

Sunday, May 4th, 2008

I launched this site again on a new home server. A previous home server had something wrong with its CPU fan, and it does not seem a good idea that I would continue to repair and run it as the server for 24 hours a day, every day. So I bought a new computer for my home server about three weeks ago. I am now really satisfied with this nice computer, although, of course, I spent some money.

The computer is so quiet that I cannot hear its running sound at a distance of several meters. And as this is usual with a new computer, it has a faster CPU, a larger memory and a more capacious hard disk drive.
