Day 56, 2023: Community Property

We went to see Steel Panther at Anaheim GardenWalk House of Blues . As we waited in line, the rain starts falling down. First it looked like a societal breakdown as the staffs made us stand in the rain. We decided to find shelter while maintaining the line. Score one for us, concertgoers.

My friends didn’t want to go through the opening bands, Tragedy (All Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees & Beyond) and Crobot. We didn’t get to the front of the stage because of that. We’re there only for Steel Panther.

It was amazing to see some of the same people we met at various Steel Panther shows. We all had a great time.

P.S. we get to talk to Steel Panther

Day 44, 2023: What Packaging?

A lot of time we have to wonder why our order is packed inefficiently. Is it because they need to ship as many orders as possible?

Oh, that is the aptly named Seven Inches of Satanic Panic vinyl by Ghost.

Ghost – Seven Inches of Satanic Panic

Day39, 2023: Tuning Guitar with Floyd Rose Bridge

Apparently today is a good day for me to tune my guitar. Since it is equipped with Floyd Rose bridge, it took a little bit finessing to get proper tuning. Oh, it is an EVH Wolfgang Special with D-tuna.

The hardest part to tune this guitar is making sure the D-tuna works properly, dropping from E to D on the bottom E-string.

On an unrelated news, I just signed up for account.

Day 37, 2023: HomePod mini and Dual USB-C Port Power Adapter

I have just installed a pair of HomePods mini at the office and discovered that I would need more power outlets or a different power strip. Thanks to the prong orientation of the 20 Watts USB-C Power Adapter.

20W Apple USB-C Power adapter and it’s 96W counterpart.

I have a Dual USB-C Port Power Adapter, which I now use to power up one of the HomePods mini; no, it cannot power two HomePods mini. I use the second port for a Apple Lighting cable.

Day 36, 2023: Brunch at Hof’s Hut

After dinner with co-workers and a guest last night, we went for brunch at Hof’s Hut. This particular Hof’s Hut has “Rossie”, a Robot Server.

On other news, apparently today is 65th annual Grammy Awards ceremony. Still couldn’t care less about the Grammys.

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 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.

Day 26, 2023: Humidity and Temperature Sensors

I finally got around to installing Apple TV and HomePod mini software updates (16.3) today. The latest update enables Humidity and Temperature Sensors in HomePod mini; which are also enabled in HomePod 2nd Generation.

Update: one HomePod mini is still installing the update. I am going to leave it running and check back tomorrow.
