At last

I installed Ubuntu on my laptop. After years of hesitating and considering, I've decided to give Ubuntu a try. Heard so many comments, good comments about Linux especially of it being more secure than Windows.

Now that it is already installed on my laptop, I'm game to explore what Ubuntu has to offer. Hopefully what I read about Ubuntu are true. How I wish that all the games that are currently offered in the shop can be played on Linux. Will be waiting for that time.

Rain rain go away

Come again after 1am till 7am.

Yes, it's been raining for the past few days. And I'm grateful for the cool breeze that comes with it. The air is cleaner, now that there won't be any open burning by the village folks in Sumatera. And it is much nicer and comfortable to sleep at night.

Yet, it also brings the gloomy atmosphere to mind. Stuck at home, having less choices to do. Makes you want to eat more especially the warm or hot food. Slows down my body's metabolism. Doesn't help in my effort to reduce weight.

Not good for the business too. Customers not able to come and play. Low sales, less income, more sighing, more financial constraints and budget cuts for the family.

Why am I so downcast? Put your hope on God. He will lift you up and carry you on His wings above the storms (rain).

Time to upgrade again

I am not sure why I always have this feeling at the end of the year. There is always the urge for me to upgrade the computers in my internet cafe. Either it is to upgrade the hardware of the existing computers or to add in next computers. These urges do not occur in the first three quarters of the year, but only in the fourth quarter of the year.

I wonder whether it is because I started my business in the fourth quarter of the year and as such there is that tendency to feel the urges to think of buying new computers during this time of the year. It is as though it has become a routine. And because of that the business has grown and I am grateful to God for that. The only setback I faced when having these urges to improve my business is the lack of money to do so.

There are many ways to overcome this problem. I have the privilege of purchasing the equipments and paying it in installments. Of course there are other ways like getting a title loan. That is when you use your car to take out a short term loanYou can do this at Auto Title loan Regional Offices in Arlington. If your brothers and sisters are rich, you might want to borrow from them without paying interest or with low interest.

As for me, I will trust that God will provide the necessary money through the sales. In God I trust.
