  • Happy New Year And Season Greetings

    The new year is always a time for change. This is the last day of the year. The last day of 2007. 2007 has also been a year filled with changes. 2007 was filled with three moves. We moved from Hsinchu to Sinjhuang. From Sinjhuang to Shulin. From Shulin to Banciao. We don’t plan on…

  • Insulated Socks And Boot Liners

    I’ve realized that most hiking boots aren’t insulated. This is because if they are insulted, they don’t breathe as well. Hiking boots are really great if they keep you warm when it’s cold and cool when it’s hot. Since I am heading into a real winter climate, I was checking out different options of liners…

  • Hard Shells, Soft Shells, and Wind Shells Product Care

    An Arc’teryx Alpha SV Revised hard shell made out of Gore-Tex Pro Shell material.

  • Assassination Of Benazir Bhutto

    I find that following the current events entries on Benazir Bhutto (بينظير بھٹ) in Wikipedia is a great summary of what happened and the international reaction to the assassination attempt. This entry, Assassination of Benazir Bhutto, has a complete timeline of the events and their fallout. It is yet unclear who is responsible for the…

  • Saturday Morning And Buxiban Turmoil

    I went to bed early last light. Last night. I was tired. It had been a long week, power naps aside. I was getting some passive aggressive vibes from my Taiwanese coworkers since I gave notice the week before. I’ve learned some interesting news about one school. My morning work hours are spread around two…

  • Power Nap

    I took a power nap today. I went to bed at around 1:30AM. As usual, I got up at 7:30AM. It wasn’t enough. Today is my busiest day, so I only had an hour and half between classes at lunch.

  • Doctor Who The Voyage of the Damned 2005 S04E00 (BBC)

    As usual with the new series of Doctor Who, there is a Christmas special. This special feature length episode usual bridges the gap between seasons and is a good way to resolve cliffhangers. With the Doctor Who franchise encompassing The Sarah Jane Adventures and Torchwood, on top of the main series, there is a lot…

  • Christmas Problems With Scooters

    Yesterday morning, my scooter broke down. On Christmas day. It wasn’t the start of the day that I’d expected. My scooter had been acting funny the day before. I’d have to continually rev it so that the engine didn’t choke. After a few hours, it was behaving normally again.
