Casual review of upgrade cable, Linum BaX from Estron

Linum-1

One way to improve the performance of your beloved headphone or IEM is by getting an upgrade cable, although whether the improvement is noticeable remains debateable. I have never been a cable believer and the thought to upgrade my cable never actually cross my mind. Until recently when I got myself a Radius HP-TWF41 and I genuinely hated the cable that comes with it, which brings me to some valid reasons for getting aftermarket cable: less microphonic, not easy to tangle and easy to skin.

Blog successfully updated to WordPress 3.2

Here is another major update from WordPress. Now, this blog has been successfully updated to 3.2. Thanksfully, nothing need to be changed in the theme. 🙂

A lot of changes has been made for this version, and one that is noticeable is the new look and layout for the administration area. It looks a little better. The sidebar is changed. The color of the boxes also changed a bit, it is more light. Some fonts are also changed. Overall, I liked the new look. 😉

There’s no yet compatibility issue so far is all that I can tell.

The pain of upgrading to Xubuntu 9.10

Well, this is the third and hopefully the last day for me to upgrade my Xubuntu install to 9.10, or also widely known as Karmic Koala. It is painful..! lol But this experience is worth it, except that it really kills my time which I suppose to do my work… 🙁 I don’t know why, or probably because of the lack experience of me, I got into the series of failure while upgrading from Xubuntu 9.04 to 9.10. Actually, my first install was Ubuntu 9.04 but I later change to Xubuntu by installing the xubuntu-desktop, probably that’s the culprit of why the auto upgrade fails.

The first day – upgrading the current Xubuntu

So at the start, I have a well working Xubuntu 9.04. Updates for 9.10 came in October 29, but I do upgrade on the next day. My internet was running slowly -it probably just my connection to Ubuntu server, since I got a great download speed on others- to download all of the updates (which surpassed 800MB), that takes more than 12 hours to complete. Well, during that time, I can do everything in my PC until, the upgrading process which takes another hour to complete, at this time it loads heavily and almost impossible to do anything. It seems everything run smoothly and it asks me to reboot.

Upgrade to WordPress 2.7

Now, I have upgraded to WordPress 2.7 “Coltrane”. The new admin interface is pretty cool, alot of improvement has made. It is now available to download on the WordPress website.

If you aware how to upgrade your current WordPress to this new version, then read this whole story. 🙂
