The latest video game I have completed is a hidden object game. Never did I expect myself to actually try out a game in such a genre let alone complete one. I must admit that I did enjoy the one I played. The developers of Hero of the Kingdom II (HOTK2) gifted a copy of their game to me and I went into the game not expecting much. I mean what fun can there be finding objects hidden in a picture? I was wrong and I think I know why.
Went cycling half-way through the nearby park connector and managed to see the sun rising. After a decade of never cycling I managed to slowly pick it back up again. Have never cycled outside my estate before though. Maybe one day I will be confident and skillful enough enough to cycle along the roads or something.
I must say cycling is pretty fun. Much better than running. I hate running.
First semester has ended! Time flies no matter if you’re having fun or not.

Back to school (college this time around) and I’ve gone on an insane spending spree on nothing but messenger bags. I’ve started using a messenger bag years back mainly because I thought they looked “cooler” (I still do) and it was definitely more flexible compared to a backpack.
When you go to a different place, you will meet different people. Different in the sense that their culture, way of thinking, habits etc will be different. The community is different. The perspective is different. The rules are different. Everything is different. This applies to the online world too.

Here are the thoughts of an indie developer after he finally finishes developing the game he started 13 years ago. Learn from his mistakes as he lists out the six “A”s that you should pay special attention to. The video right after the break.
Have limited USB ports in your setup (especially for those using laptops) or simply need a way to extend your USB port so that you don’t always have to reach all the way to plug in your devices? A USB hub will definitely help in, but not limited to, those inconveniences and problems! The Orico A3H10 is a 10 port USB 3.0 powered hub that will give you tons of expandability, convenience and beauty. Read on for my full review of it.
The Accelero Xtreme III is a custom air cooling solution by Arctic for graphics cards. Custom cooling for graphics cards aren’t that uncommon especially for liquid cooling modifications. We have also seen the recent introduction of brackets to allow the installation of your All-In-One liquid coolers for CPUs on GPUs. Such options definitely do help especially for people who want to go liquid but don’t have the knowledge or means to do a full custom one. The Xtreme III isn’t the latest model (version 4 is out already) but it is something that has been in the market for quite some time and is easier (at least for me) to get. Read on for the full review of the Arctic Xtreme III.
Happened to forget your Windows password and got locked out of your computer/laptop? How about having a password set on your account without you even knowing? Whatever the case is, here is a guide to resetting your password without a Password Reset Disk (I don’t even know such a thing existed. That said, I never ever had passwords set on my computers).
The last piece of the puzzle is finally here. To round up my PC upgrade is the graphics card. If you’ve read my previous update, the only major changes I’ve made are to the CPU and motherboard. I did get new peripherals and slapped on a SSD as well as an additional sound card. The reason I gave for not upgrading the GPU is due to the fact that I wasn’t playing any games that required a more powerful card. Besides, most games these days don’t even need that much power anyways.
My first time experience with eBay’s (not so new) Global Shipping Program (GSP) is through my purchase of a 2nd hand graphics card from a seller based in the US. I made this purchase a week and a half ago and the graphics card arrived yesterday. I am pleased to say that it is in good condition. I have to say though that my research on the GSP after my purchase got me really worried. Read on to find out why.
