this drizzle outside reminds my most beautiful memories of my hometown and childhood. in this eccentric city, I sometimes doubting if I a stranger or a nomad. God dad, I seemingly no concern in this world except my son, my Empire of China to reclaim. grant us progress in the task list.
woz 13th birthday celebration after his normal late class near 7pm. proudest dad, benzrad, prepared him a dearest cake he ever bought, ￥128 for breeze & strawberry language (和风莓语) from a nearby bakery he haunted with woz several years ago.
it's a silent morning. my son, woz, reserved joy the new Asus flip chromebook brings, with me, let the gear alone near 2 weeks in his hands intact before unfold its full power and beauty till we together focused its full strength, its durable being cool. we love it. my son proved his affection upon the handy tool, its beautiful screen for larger gaming experience. thx God, we possess it now, and hopefully it lasts at least half decade.
last weekend I left my son in gaming on his new flip chromebook earlier, partially evaded his messy mother's beg for aid to support my son's living. I recorded her loan ￥700/mon to support my son's living expenses, which mounts to near ￥20,000 so far, and told her I penniless each month with my bills and poor salary. my son last night likely upset by his mom's attitude and shown no respect of my query of his ongoing updating his wintel. he don't know his mom's failure and harm in her family education, as normal cheap Chinese.
the chromebook brings another equipment of linux into zhone workspace. never too overestimate to celebrate its fitting our need upon coming US and China trade war. its so smartly slim. I hope my son enjoy it as his new first gaming gear. God dad, how a larger surprise can be after turbulent customs deterrence and hostile PRC surveillance? God dad, its the largest gift we have now, in your mercy.
God, when Chinese in PRC less in dangers and uncertainty as our parcel awaiting approval in Beijing customs? after delayed near a week our ordered Asus flip Chromebook from amazon China dispatched from UK vendor finally, in less than a week it arrived capital PRC then in sinking hole for nearly 3 days. now my son expects it as I am, upon the breathtaking gift's arrival.
this 2 week we assigned to be waiting our ordered product, likely shipped from UK via amazon purchase. my anxious mainly about PRC surveillance and its customs trouble-making. however, this month credit debt due to paid today and I well prepared, aid by dorm canteen operative woman's loan. recent adventure not only left me but also drag my son's deposit penniless. after last weekends, we left literary none in hand. and we planning fruits week menu in the summer coming.
in the past week, and longer than old month, I set precaution about chromebook convertible. its price increasing and supply scarcely day by day in PRC worsening computer market as well as consumer products. however, last night I caught successfully the flashing window and ordered my son such a product, asus c101 pa. what a relief we blessed with!
this year since lunar spring festival has been busy, but recently my workload loosed. still last week can be fruitful: I replace web of agarten.in with new project webapp, and it's amazingly functional. now that security of zhone web outsourced to our hosting plan vendor, my only duty is praying Holy commitment through our ISP's service, and God, we mean it.
near dozen days passed since last post: I had been too busy with settling woz's desktop environment from my old intel NUC2, and exchange our 2 chromebooks. cheaper acer chromebook installed solely arch for woz less frequent usage, while dell chromebook which equipped with more ram, shifts to my linux side by side with chromeOS via a tool crouton to switch. its wonderful fit my fantasy with linux, after funding new linux desktop refuted by my alumni. still we feel sufficient in our computing gears backups.
