Old Computers Reboot with Open Source #1

Sometimes, it is personal question whether or not getting the old computers working worth your time and money. Majority people nowadays no longer care and will throw away without hesitations. They prefer buying new PC or laptop since it is so affordable and more new features with faster technology. Old computers may be slow and worthless. But for me, it stills got the value and can help to reduced spending on certain new technology. This is where open source comes in. The only problems are in Brunei, not many of them including companies are interested even if it’s a free license. The presence of Microsoft marketing here are so strong so it going to be long for locals start interest using open source. I personally slowly migrating and learning how to use open source especially Linux. To be honest, I do not see the reason keep sticking Windows when they going to release new operating system estimate every two years. I no longer can afford to buy new license and devices to keep up with…

I believe the new issues are the local company’s struggle keeping its business alive instead Of course there are rarely such claims or mentioning from the local news. It doesn’t mean never happen. I know the new policy was meant to help the SME so that they can hire more locals during their growth. Also this is to prevent alibaba business continue as well. The governments even go extends call on every private sectors should keep the requirement percentage hiring more locals in order to stay in business. I’m sure many of you think this is thumb up work…

AMX- 107R Rebawoo (Full Frontal Use)

Finally it’s done! When I first received the Rebawoo kit, my thought was going to be easy to build. Sorry to say this is not true. The worst are the plastic parts came from Bandai factory were somewhat fragile even easily broken and morel like bootleg. I’m not sure how many those who brought it affected but I was among one of the unlucky buyer received two out of three have such problem. There goes the Bandai premium quality. The good one will be kept as antique and the second will be kit bashing later until I got more ideas. There are a lot of hard sanding work involve during my time spending on certain parts. This is why I say not easy. I believe the paintings are the most challenging when it comes to Sleeves crests. I never fond of it because of this kind of issue, I decided to play it simple and change the way it going to look. The decals also took me the whole final day of patience and carefully applied on each area using the picture short story note book from the ‘One of Seventy…
