Have you noticed the recently added street view cameras on Kapiolani Blvd? They’re not that big and really the signs posted on the traffic lights about these cameras are bigger than the cameras themselves. But yes, these have been installed for the upcoming World Conservation Congress coming to Hawaii next week, potentially causing messy […]
Testing posting with new version of WordPress mobile app.
Never really noticed this in the past, but have ever tried to eat healthy at the Costco food court? While you can’t beat the cost of the hot dog/soda combo, it can’t be that good for your body. Pizza, sandwiches, sundaes – all no so healthy. Of course, the Caesar salad is the answer. Nothing […]
Bye VGA, bye DVI. Got Dell UltraSharp U2515H displays that only have HDMI and DisplayPort inputs. But there’s this “weird” DisplayPort that wasn’t working for me…until I learned that it’s an ouput for DisplayPort, not an input. But why would a monitor need an output port? So you can daisy chain them. Yup, I learned […]
So you probably heard that Pokemon Go creator, Niantic Labs, is banning users from the popular game if they suspect you for violating the game terms. In other words, you’re cheating at the game. Commonly, this cheating takes the form of using an app or service that divulges the location of Pokemon. Instead of you […]
Well, that was unexpected. At work, I came across a list of recent award recipients and posted the list of names on our company’s SharePoint-based intranet (like I typically do). The reaction to this list of winners though was not expected. Instead of an overall congratulatory spirit for the winners, there were questions about the visibility […]
Wow, I was hopeful but uncertain. But sure enough, Nike pulled through with great customer service and support, approving my return of my Air Max Lunar1. Although two years old and technically right outside the defective products period, I had nothing to lose by trying a return. Nike.com purchases: Flawed shoes, apparel and gear can be […]
This took me completely by surprise. Today, as I was walking around the office while eating a black sugar manapua, I had two coworkers stop me and ask what that was. They only knew of the regular pork-filled manapua aka char siu bao and had never seen the black sugar variety. What’s so surprising is […]
I don’t know why local clothing designer Sig Zane has his items available on Nike.com, and I don’t really care. I guess Sig has collaborations with Hurley that is affiliated with Nike. While I love the designs, I wasn’t about to pay full price for the goods. Luckily, now that summer is coming to a close, this […]
While I don’t have a badminton set at home, I can too easily believe how backyard badminton is “played.” From the 2004 Olympics, listen and laugh at the truth.
I have no idea what this means, so if anyone can explain this… Yes, this sign is really above a toilet and seen below. So is the toilet the one place where one can dream?
The signs of the apocalypse are mounting. This past week, the stalwart escalators of Ala Moana, the “flat” ones near Macys, actually broke down. These were seemingly the most reliable set of escalators in the entire mall. I’ve even seen the newer ones near Nordstrom being repaired, but those flat ones just kept on running. […]
