Christmas is Coming

Christmas is only a few days away. It has always been my favorite holiday especially because it brings families together which in turn brings many happy memories with it. I know that many people like Christmas because of the presents although in actuality it was not that important.

Nonetheless, many people will want to give or have a nice Christmas presents for or from their loved ones. Blessed are those who still have someone that is willing or even looking forward to give them Christmas presents. There are a lot more people who won’t have anything to give or receive this Christmas. Read the rest of this entry »

A Helping Hand

It was not an easy task to travel alone, especially if you travel a long distance and is driving by yourself. There are a lot of things to consider especially since you don’t have someone to switch driving when you are tired. Of course being tired is just one of the many factors that you have to consider when traveling alone.

If you are tired you can pullover at a restaurant, gas station or even a motel to rest and continue your journey afterward. Of course there are problems that can be more crucial than that, such as when you got a flat tire or even a problem with your car’s engine. If that happened during the day and on a busy street or area it was not really worrying. Read the rest of this entry »

Upgrading Cyanogenmod 6.1 RC2 to RC4

Cyanogenmod 6.1 RC4I just upgraded my Nexian Journey NX-A890 from Cyanogenmod 6.1 RC2 to Cyanogenmod 6.1 RC4. At first I was reluctant, but yesterday I finally decided to risk it because of several things. I found that the battery drained quickly when I was still using Cyanogenmod 6.1 RC2, although I don’t really remember any other bugs that I found annoying.

I remember that the battery goes from fully charged to empty in less than 12 hours which is very bad, and it was due to light usage. I don’t know how long it will last when under heavy use (gaming, browsing, multiple synced apps, etc). So I decided to risk upgrading to 6.1 RC4. I found the battery lasted a while longer although still not significant enough. Read the rest of this entry »
