Galaxy Note 7 Release Date in Singapore and Philippines?

galaxynote7
Because I’m currently in Singapore (sometimes in the Philippines), I’m now looking to upgrade from S7 Edge to S7, after finding out that it will be released this August 19, 2016, world wide!!!! Yep, the newest Samsung flagship phone has this stunning iris scanner, which is suppperrr awesome! I don’t know if this is the first phone with an iris scanner, maybe there are other china-made phones that I haven’t heard of that already has this feature way before Samsung integrated it with their latest phone model. And oh, the Note 7 is built for a better VR experience. The new, all-black “Gear VR 2” will be released together with the Note 7. And yes, it’s safe to assume that it will work exclusively with the Note 7.

Coraleen Waddell is now video blogging!

corawaddel-youtube
Yep, she’s now into video blogging. My number one crush in the world is now video blogging. Subscribe to her channel now at youtube.com/channel/UCAMlaS8ELTqpQDrt46PdKJg. She now has 16,574 subscribers as of August 6, 2016, with more than 100k YouTube views in her 3 videos. Latest video was uploaded yesterday. Her vlog is fun to watch, even if she’s just talking about random stuff that you might not be interested, anyway I’m interested in all that she does. Even if she just eats, or sleeps, or just babbling random things about make-up. I just love her, and I know you will too!

Kickass.to is dead, but there are mirror sites like dxtorrent.com, etc

As we all know, Kickass just died 24 hours ago. The owner of the site was arrested by the he U.S. Government 24 hours ago. It’s all over the news. If you still don’t know about the news, just click the “all over” and “the news” hyperlinks that I just typed before this sentence.

kickassalternative

Right now, I’m using dxtorrent.com and thepiratebay.org as Kickass alternative. Just last year, I switched to Kickass because PirateBay was down. Now, it’s back up, and Kickass became the #1 torrent site in the world. All leading Torrent sites easily get noticed, that’s why it’s now down. Haha!

Anyway, if you have any other suggestions on Kickass torrents alternatives, please feel free to leave a comment below.

PS: Here’s a reddit I found online about Kickass alternative. It’s worth checking out!

Magento Fix on simplexml_load_string error at lib/Varien/Simplexml/Config.php

If you’ve noticed that your system.log’s size is increasing every minute because of the error logs like this:

Warning: simplexml_load_string(): ^ in /lib/Varien/Simplexml/Config.php on line 383

Then consider your problem solved. After hours and hours of googling and searching at stackoverflow, I found nothing. Most of the solutions to the problem that is related to the simplexml_load_string error is something that is related to an XML file. But my problem wasn’t.

git: User was holding a relation lock for too long

Screen Shot 2016-06-16 at 10.06.11 AM
If you encountered this error while pushing your recent change to your git repo, worry not. You’re not alone. Just recently, like a few minutes ago, I’m having trouble pushing my latest commit to my Bitbucket repo. Good thing I found out that it’s just a bitbucket issue, not really an issue with my repo or with my server or with my localhost.

Below is the exact error I’m getting while trying to push my latest commits:
remote: canceling statement due to conflict with recovery
remote: LINE 1: …er”.”date_joined” FROM “bb_repository” INNER JOIN “auth_user…
remote: DETAIL:  User was holding a relation lock for too long.
! [remote rejected] master -> master (pre-receive hook declined)

I actually tried pushing it again and again, switch branches, cloned a new repo, but no can do. Nothing I tried worked, it’s because Bitbucket is having issues, not me. Haha!

Let’s just wait for Bitbucket to fix the issue and not panic.

BryanVeloso.com is not mobile friendly

Yes, that’s right. My website is not mobile friendly and I’ll be switching to a responsive theme very soon. I just love this theme because it’s simple and, not mobile friendly. I was just alarmed, because when I searched for my blog in Google.com, I saw a “Your page is not mobile-friendly.” link right under my URL bryanveloso.com. Alarming isn’t it?

Google Adsense cannot login using Chrome, but in Safari, you can!

adsense-cannot-login
If you’ve encountered this issue last year, it seems it’s still not fixed. When attempting to sign in via adsense.google.com using Google Chrome, you’ll be prompted with this error message: “Looks like this Google account isn’t associated with an AdSense account. That’s okay. You can either sign in with the Google account associated with AdSense, or sign up for an AdSense account today.”. I thought this is just temporary. All I know is that Google is signing in your Adsense account using an individual account data, not your actual account data. This happened to accounts who signed up with Adsense prior to the implementation of Google Single Sign-on. So it’s prompting that your email is not associated to Adsense at all.

Happyfresh Philippines doesn’t guarantee 1 hour delivery

I tried ordering today at happyfresh.ph, hoping that they will live to its promise of delivering your groceries within an hour, but I was disappointed with their service. It’s actually a lie. If you’re expecting your groceries to be delivered within an hour or within 2 hours, then you’ll be disappointed, just like me. They will not and cannot deliver it within an hour, I assure you. I selected the time 1-2PM after ordering at 12 noon. Surprise surprise, 2PM already passed, and the groceries are still not delivered. After refreshing their website several times, the status of my order is “Shopper has started selecting your items 19/05/2016 – 12:42PM”. They just started selecting and will deliver it in my area for 5-10minutes or less? I doubt it will arrive that fast, even if there’s no traffic, it’s literally impossible, unless the grocery shop is just 10 steps away from home.
