Fixing Unifi!

Alright here's the deal... I just got unifi installed and got all excited over it! Epic!! Went on installing the wireless settings for my laptop, uncle's laptop, brothers laptop... and when it came to my dad's laptop, we couldn't detect the unifi network! After trying and trying and restarting and restarting... things didn't get better... especially it being an old underpowered machine, the startup time takes about 5 to 10 minutes, which frustrated me even more!! Hence...
Yeah... I wish...
Anyway I went ahead and did some research which brought me over to this dude's blog, which reveals some security flaws with unifi. Check it out here! This dude knows all the shit about unifi! Except when it comes to the latest firmware 7.09 for the D-Link router. 
Like seriously I spent 3 hours medaling with the shit trying to use it as a bridge to my previous router, but naaaahhhhh... doesnt work with the latest firmware. REMEMBER: ALWAYS BACK UP YOUR SETTINGS BEFORE TRYING ANYTHING!

Well let's cut to the chase... I noticed this on my dad's laptop wireless network center 

- The capability of your network adapter does not match the requirements of the network

I figured that it's probably my the computer's network adapter just ain't "canggig" enough to handle N-wireless settings and that I had to buy an external network adapter. Luckily, I'm a cheapskate and don't want to give the tenants of digital mall that hundred bucks or so, therefore I gave it one last search before giving up and I came across this in LYN!

1) Login to via a LAN cable.
Username: admin
Password: telekom (the password could be blank)

2) Click "Wireless Setup" on the left-hand menu.

3) Click "Manual Wireless Connection Setup" button.

4) Go to "Wireless Network Global Settings" section.

5) Untick "Enable Auto Channel Selection" checkbox.

6) Set the "Wireless Channel" number to 11.

7) Click "Save Settings" button.

Your router will reboot and it'll take a while, i.e., 2 to 3 minutes.

Once it has come back online, you should be able to detect the wifi and connect to it.

And Waaa-LAaaa!! It works! My dad's computer can now use Unifi!!

For those who faces a similar problem! Do not fear, salvation is just 2 minutes away!

Have a great day ahead!!

Got the Monday blues??
Today I shall be grateful!!
Shall I name 10 things I'm grateful for?
1. My family
2. My friends
3. My girlfriend
4. My band
5. My talent
6. My job
7. Being able to live a comfortable life
8. Having an optimistic and positive personality
9. Being able to enjoy the simple things in life
10. God!! For blessing me with all these things I can be grateful for!

It's good to take some time of reflection to see how wonderful your life really is. Having a good life doesn't mean everything is going well and good all the time. There must be balance and balance is everything. With every up there will be a down, with every sad there will be a happy, with every good there will be bad. Uncertainty makes life exciting and grief makes every happy worth while! Appreciation is the key, have you told that special person how much you cared for him/her? Have you thanked your friends and family for being there for you? Do you realize how much you DO have compared to what other's don't? It may be a nickel but a nickel may buy a meal in some countries facing poverty.

What could 4000 dollars do for you?

Here's a thought... Have you been spending your money wisely? If you had a lump sum of cash, what would you do? When was the last time you made an investment that really paid off? And in how long did it take to mature?
Have you ever heard of the term 
“Let your money work for you”? says, “If you desire to become rich, you must let your money to work for you. We can’t become rich by working hard and saving hard. We only can become rich by investing, that is letting your money to work for you. You can always ask the rich how to become wealthy. The rich save and invest not save and spend.”

Hmm sounds pretty much like an entrepreneur!! Let’s name some famous entrepreneurs here...

Oprah Winfrey, a television host, actress, producer, and philanthropist, best known for her self-titled, multi-award winning talk show, which has become the highest-rated program of its kind in history.

Walt Disney, a film producer, director, screenwriter, voice actor,animator, entrepreneur, entertainer, international icon, philanthropist, and founder of the Walt Disney Company.

Steve Jobs an American business magnate and inventor. He is the co-founder and chief executive officer of Apple Inc. Here's an epic picture of Steve Jobs with his 1984 Macintosh.
Clement Cheng or better known as GapNap to some, a Malaysian entrepreneur who started off selling guitars and music equipment in his blog site ( and has formed one of the most well known music shops in Malaysia, Music Master.

What did these people have in common? They all worked their asses off and had to invest tons and tons of time, sweat and money! But no one in history can compare to the great Georgina Kelly!!

This overly under-rated entrepreneur has invested a mere 4000 dollars and has received worldwide recognition. This includes over 135 million YouTube views, a nomination in the MTV O Music Awards in the same category with the famous hip hop artist 50 Cent and even featured in a Jay Leno show. And her investment has paid off in a mere three months since the investment.

INTERESTING EH?? But who the hell is Georgina Kelly??




Here is what Georgina Kelly has created!

Yes that’s right!! Mrs.Black paid USD4000 to a record label, ARK Music Factory, to write and produce a single accompanied by a music video. On the 10th of February 2011, the single “Friday” was released on YouTube and since then has made many accomplishments.

- Receiving over 135 MILLION views on YouTube
- Black appearing on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”
- Peaking at number 58 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts
- Making it to the top 50 in Australia (#40), Ireland (#46), New Zealand (#33)
- Nominated in the MTV O Music Awards for the Favorite Animated GIF with 50 Cent and Bert
- Parody of the song played on Hitz.FM every few hours
- Recently announced that the Cast of Glee will be covering “Friday” in their upcoming episode

Don’t you think that’s a 4000 bucks well spent??

And that it all paid off in a mere 3 months!! DAMN!! Compare that to Paris Hilton’s “Stars are Blind” which only has 1.6 million YouTube views and no other achievements other than peaking higher on the charts… (don't get me wrong, I personally think that it's a good song and I really do like it a lot)

Wouldn’t you agree that this is just pure genius? Imagine creating this little monster rising star with just four thousand bucks… Imagine the possibilities with more?

Makes me think,
