Clock ticking

Time is the most important asset. Time does not equal money. Time equals life. And you only have one chance to make it right.

Every human being is fighting a battle inside themselves. It’s your obligation to help and inspire them. Regardless of what you do, you can always inspire others to do good.

Nobody is better than you. And you’re not better than anybody else. Be humble. Being in the comfort zone is wonderful, but nothing ever grows there.

$ sudo memtest-setup

Slow speed on git clone

16 March 2018 | 1 min read

Previously, on my last project, I have huge of git repository, I find that the fetch speed can be extremely slow (KB/s).The workaround is to fetch only the latest revision first and then fetch the rest:

$ git clone --depth=1
$ cd pitabytes
$ git fetch --unshallow

You also can try to use higher compression

$ git config --global core.compression 9

If you still have the problem, you need to retired early and go back to you hometown.

Fedora - Setting power management when low battery

Peace be upon you, I have issue with Fedora power management when my DELL Inspiron 14R 7420 SE battery are low, my laptop just shutdown and I lose what I currently working on.

Some how our spining disk also can get corrupt if it often happen like this. To be honest, I normally sleep at late night and mostly with my lappy on my desk (bad habit pun intended huh >_<)
