Bỏ host, chuyển domain đi chỗ khác


Trong một nỗ lực giảm chi phí vớ vẩn, mình lại vừa phát hiện bấy lâu nay đã trả tiền gia hạn tên miền đắt :(.

Hosting đắt thì domain rẻ, hosting rẻ thì domain đắt. Trước giờ lười chỉnh mấy cái DNS records nên hay đem domain về host để. Giờ thì nghèo nên bỏ cả host, tạm thời duy trì domain rẻ để giữ GSuite đã dùng hơn 10 năm qua.

Huawei Honor Band 4 Running Edition review


So on Valentine’s Day I decided to buy myself a gift, just like on some recent events. And I found a new health band that might be suitable for me, Huawei Honor Band 4 Running Edition, at a cheap price. The band is small enough, just like the Mi Band Pulse (1s) I used to wear before I lost it in Hunan, China.

My first impressions were all good. The band is fashionable, with red inside the black color. The box came with a gear to wear the band on a running shoe.

The band ran on low battery after my 2-day Vung Tau trip, after 9 days. I also realized on Feb 20 that it might count fewer steps than the Mi Band and the Pedometer app.

Unluckily, the Huawei Health app was below average. I found that it didn’t sync the sleep of 2-3 days. After a few syncing efforts, I uninstalled the app, and reinstalled it. Then it worked again after 2 syncs each day, but without the first days’ records; I could only sync the recent 7 days. There was no account attached with the app, either Huawei or Google, so I wouldn’t be able to reinstall the app as there was no backup. To make it worst, I couldn’t sync it with Google Fit.

I wore it on a 5-day trip to Thailand, and surprisingly there was still some battery after that. Today, after 13 days, I’ve just plugged it in the charger.

Kindle review


Em trai mình về hôm thứ sáu tuần trước đã mang Kindle mình nhờ mua trong đợt giảm giá 33% Prime Day hôm trước (5.980 JPY = 1.2280.000 VND).

Thì ra quảng cáo cũng k gây khó chịu lắm, dù nó bằng tiếng Nhật.

Mình xài thử với wifi mở liên tục từ đêm thứ 6 (16/8) thì đến sáng thứ 2 (19/8) máy báo 10% kêu sạc pin. Sạc mất 3 tiếng đồng hồ thì lên được 100%.

Để thử chỉ sync wifi khi cần xem xài được bao lâu.

Cập nhật ngày 27/8: Khi bật chế đô máy bay thì dùng được hơn 1 tuần, chính xác là 8 ngày thì máy mới về 10% báo yếu pin.

Cập nhật ngày 2/9: Hồi đêm máy báo 10% hết pin. Vậy là tuần này đọc nhiều hơn, được 6 ngày.

Thank you, Splitwise!


I found so many new apps this year, but today’s discovery is the best. First, it helps me save a lot of money counting money that I owe people or they owe me. Second, it’s free. Third, it works on iOS and Android (app) as well as on PC (browser).

I’m slow at dealing with numbers, so I guess I’ll take full use of the app in 2014. I intend to replace my current financial Excel sheets with Splitwise.

I’m super-excited right now.

Changing web hosting


The change of the hosting was finished after 2 days. And today, I got good news that the domain transfer was successful, too. Finally, I could sleep easily at night.

After 6 years of using DreamHost, I had to switch to a cheaper one to reduce the yearly payment. This time, I paid 4 years ahead to enjoy the most benefits. The 4 year package was still cheaper than the 1 year at DreamHost.

The differences aren’t much. cPanel is also as easy to use as the Control Panel of DreamHost. However, the support wasn’t as good. But I didn’t expect an excellent service for such a cheap price.
