Day 33, 2023: Dark Materials

I recently got into “His Dark Materials” series on HBO. I have not read the books, so I don’t know much about the series. I do remember the movie adaptation, “The Golden Compass” but never actually watch it.

I’m pretty sure going to binge-watch it this weekend.

Day 32, 2023: Month Two

It is February already…

I just deleted a whole block because certain things should remain unsaid for now.

Anyway, I just finished updating my iPhone 5s to iOS 12.5.7 today. I also accidentally screwed up portion of my Music Library. I would have to restore it from my backup.

Day 30, 2023: Visiting an Apple Store

I went to an Apple Store for a Genius Bar Appointment. One M1 MacBook Air is having trouble charging the battery. We were able to replicate the issue and parts were ordered. I decided to get another set of Power Adapter and USB-C Charge Cable, to see if the issue was not caused by the internal components in the MacBook Air.

I have swapped the Power Adapter and the Charge Cable in troubleshooting the issue. Unfortunately the result was inconclusive. I’m hoping the new Power Adapter and Charge Cable would give me better ideas on what’s going on with the MacBook Air.

By the way it was raining today, again.

Day 29, 2023: English Pub Food

It started raining when I went to a local “English Pub” to meet some friends. I ordered Chicken Tenders with chips (fries) and green peas. Apparently the green peas is the “English Pub” part in the meal according to my friend who used to work in London. Overall it was pretty good meal.

I also visited a few kittens at my friend’s house. They were spayed earlier in the week and recovering without any complications. they are currently wearing vests to prevent them from excessively licking the stitches.

Day 28, 2023: Cats Day

Found some photos, actual printed photos of Porkchop T. Cat from the year 2000. Pretty sure there a lot more in digital format somewhere in tons of old hard drives at the office.

Anyway, here is Tuna T. Cat, he needs to go on a diet.

Day 27, 2023: New Jersey

Last week during my daily commute, I was listening to “Hair Nation” channel on SiriusXM radio. Bon Jovi song was playing and the host mentioned how great the “New Jersey” album was. So I went to Amazon.com and found a sealed copy of 2014 reissue deluxe edition of the album. Well it arrived today and I took it home. Then I realized that I do not have one single optical disc player in the house. I’ll have to take the CD back to the office to add it into my digital library.

On other news, I finished updating my Apple TV and HomePod minis at home. Apparently,

HomePod and Apple TV Apple TV 4K has eARC support built in. Pair it with up to two HomePod speakers to enjoy home theater audio across all your TV -connected devices.

I’m going to try it out this weekend. I am so tempted in getting a pair of new HomePods.
