Where have you gone?

What do you expect from the title? This post is either about love or I am searching for a lost friend…but when you see the category, it falls under Tech…Why…why?

Without further whimsical, actually this post is about something called cache. “Where have you gone?” was the question I asked when I streamed videos or music in the internet. Quite sometimes ago I heard about cache which in my opinion (purely just my opinion) is a bunch of temporarily downloaded files when we surf the net. So what’s so interesting about it? I’ll tell you later…

Happy Chinese New Year!!! for Tomorrow for Today…

me.jpgAaaaa….Finally…I got back to my blog. My internet addiction is so chronic. Yesterday I was having a little problem with my laptop. By little, I mean Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD) which is mmm… quite normal for a Windows computer (sorry Microsoft).
