Hi, China how you doing?

Fixed that issue with Hong Kong yet? You know that issue that has been going since 15th of March 2019? Ooh no, Hong Kong is still fighting for it’s freedom 💡

I have noticed something interesting, ever since I wrote this article. China has been visiting site noticeably more, I can tell by the statistics on the back end of my blog. Don’t get me wrong, before I wrote the article I would get the occasional visit from China. But since the article the amount of visits from China has been dramatically increased. I discussed the matter with my mom (Sonia ❤ ).

See China you should have left me alone! Checking this shitty little blog (sometimes multiple times a day!) that only has one critical article about Hong Kong? Seriously 🙄 wtf???!!! CHINA IT IS ON!!

The thing here is what is going on in Hong Kong, hit me hard, it went straight to my core. Like the game HALO did many years ago. Don’t get me wrong me wrong I am aware of the protests that are going on right now in Chili, India etc. etc. But Hong Kong, the protests there are the only I literally feel ^^’

So what to expect? Frequent articles about Hong Kong and the atrocities committed by China. This is not a news blog, the topics I write about will be old news. What kind of blog this is? I don’t fucking know anymore 😎

Here is 3 minute vid that shows what happened in Hong Kong in the past 7 months.

The vid is created by soaringturnip.

Just in case, I am not planning on committing suicide. And if I ever say good things about China and or the backward honor culture I had the bad luck to be born in, but I managed to escape at 17. Something happened to me, something BAD. Also you can always do the cliccy for the larger piccie 😛

Manual to the Casio Collection W-216H-1BVEF watch

It is the manual to this watch

Watch

It is not a complete manual  💡  just two pages that covers the most important shit (like setting time, date etc. etc). You can find the manual here.

I like this watch, it has a big display with the information I care about. Yes, I know it is not a smart watch 🙂 I don’t like to be traceable all the time. When I go out to commit a murder, I leave my phone at home. The watch tells me how much time I have, before the police might consider it suspicious that I walk around without emitting a phone signal 😎

There is a first time for everything, I guess…

I have been hanging around the internet since 1995, yes I am old, yes I know the sound a 28k8 modem makes 😀 And I have been watching porn online ever since, but I was never caught by a stranger. That was until yesterday…..

I was doing homework in an internet cafe and stranger who sat next to me, started talking to me. And she wanted to show me something on my laptop. The moment she hit “PO” on my keyboard, I knew it wouldn’t end well 😮

My entire pornhub history showed, you know the titles off all the “movies” I have been watching where there for her to see. We sat there like 4 seconds in complete silence….. In that silence I contemplated saying “Listen, I was extremely horny last night” I decided against it. After those quiet 4 seconds we continued like nothing happened 😎

I shared this story with my real family (not the backward retards I have the bad luck of sharing a name and dna with). We all had a good laugh about it,  the best reaction was given by Sonia (my mom ❤ ). Her reaction is in the screenshot below:

How to change fonts in tty on Fedora

This tutorial is for tty only! This how to did not work in Konsole, I got some funny looking error message 😮 Which I didn’t care too much about, since I am tty junkie and terminal emulators have unlike tty a menu in which can you change the font. This also explains why the usual screenshots are missing, I had to take pictures. And yes they suck, I can’t take pictures, I know 🙄

I entered tty3 by hitting

Ctrl+Alt+F3

(read more about getting in and out of tty here).

Where I was presented with this screen:

logintty

I logged with my username and password, the regular ones, no need to login as root.

Then I typed:

cd /lib/kbd/consolefonts

libkbdconsolefontsThis moves to directory where all the fonts are stored, to see which fonts there are, type:

ls

showfonts

These are the fonts you can choose from:

allfonts

To see what a font (for example sun12X22.psfu.gz) looks like type:

setfont sun12x22.psfu.gz

Yes you can use TAB completion in tty too!

Here you can see what earlier mentioned font looks like:

resultsetfont

Keep in mind this is a temporary solution, for a permanent solution the .bashrc file needs to modified 💡

 

Remember you can always do the cliccie for a larger piccie 😛 Yes, people my laptop is so gross, so am I 😎 Yes I have a piece of tape on my camera, the world doesn’t need so me naked o_O Yes there is a can of beer there (Hertog Jan) deal with it.

Wow! What a nice suprise!

So I was just checking out my stats page, of which you can see a part below.

statspage

And I noticed that files were being downloaded from my blog. I was like 😮

“Huh, people actually download the stuff I upload??!!??? WTF, seriously???!! How is THAT even possible??!!”

Then I went to check how many times files were downloaded in 2019. Turns out file download counts were not recorded before July 2019. So this are the downloads from July till now.

downloads

I must say it is pretty neat, since I always wondered if other people gave a fuck about what I put up on the site. To be fair, it is quite humbling and it encourages me to do better.

What I want to say is, thank you, thank you so much! This made my day, I really needed this today 😥

Remember, you can always do the cliccie for a larger piccie 😛

Save Hong Kong!

Hong Kong is a safe place, protected by the law. People are demonstrating because the government tries to pass a law of China extradition. Which means you can get arrested in Hong Kong by China even if you’ve never physically stepped foot in China.

China recently sentenced someone 10-year jail just because she (“Lady Tianyi”) uploaded some homosexual comics, not to mention thousands of mysteriously disappearing persons who’ve said things the Chinese government disliked.

HK was a former British colony till 1997 which have been exercising rule of law and partial democracy, as opposed to China which is an authoritarian state with their own set of laws. Sadly, our law can be amended and the Chinese have the authority to interpret the law if there is any disputes.

What you, as foreigners can do, is to remember today’s as a historical fact because this might get erased in our future textbooks. Know the difference between HK and China and why HK is special. Many of us are considering immigrating and if we do move into your country I hope you’ll understand our situations. I’m sure we don’t want any trouble with the locals as well. Lastly, stay safe when you travel to HK if this bill does get pass.

Text above is not written by me but by  redditor /u/expressexpress The line I put in bold, triggered me to create this post. The pictures are taken today in Hong Kong, you can click on a picture for a larger version.

To add some perspective Hong Kong has a population of 7.4 million people, more then 1 million people are protesting. This is huge…..Unfortunately we all know how this is going to end. The drawing below is a pretty good representation of how the protest will end. Even though I dearly hope it will not be the case.
