Can’t empty trash

by bintie on 9/02/2016

my preferences is “empty trash securely”.

in my case, there has a file (.jpg) that is locked (don’t know why). and I can’t empty trash even after restart several time.

so I go Google, and found this solution. and it works!

Finder > Preferences > Advanced > un-tick the empty trash securely.

try again to empty the trash. then tick back the empty trash securely button if you wish to.

Cyberduck

I’ve found another alternative to replace FileZilla FTP client, since FZ got a malware. There is no point if the software is free but contains too many malware/virus.

Another free FTP client that I think is good is Cyberduck. If you feel good with this software, you can give them a token/donation to support them to produce more good/quality software. The token is as low as $5/€5.

credit card fraud

by bintie on 25/04/2015

I received notification via SMS from Citibank (refer picture). As far as I concern, I can confirmed that I didn’t make any purchase online via credit card on that day.

I called Citibank call centre, after verified my personal information, she said that there is one who tried to use my account to purchase at Save on Crafts. The amount is about US$1114. But the transaction is rejected since they don’t have the CVC number. Lucky me. Nice try huh!

So Citibank blocked my current card and give a replacement card.

My sister said, if you want to purchase online, especially to book hotel, reserve a rental car, and etc, better you don’t put the correct CVC number. Later, when you have arrived at the hotel or at the car rental company, you can provide all the information. She has practised it.

If you are at the hotel that only enable 2 devices to connect wifi in their room, and you want to disconnect 1 of the device to connect another device, enter 1.1.1.1 at browser.

It will disconnect your current device.

Keynote September 2014

by bintie on 16/11/2014

On 9th September 2014, Apple had launch keynote for iPhone 6, Apple Watch, Apple Pay, and iOS 8. The event is occur at 10am (Cupertino time) and we in Malaysia can have livestream via Safari web browser on 10th September, around 2am. I almost forgot about this, but luckily my home page is Apple web, so it is such my reminder then.

At first, I can’t manage to watch it, since it always buffering. I thought it happens because of my connection is not good. But after several time I tried, then I managed to watch it from the first until the U2 performed. It is like a real thing happens. Like I seat at the event. I feel like, “whoah”.

Actually, the things that I really can’t wait is of course the iPhone 6. Other than that, is iOS 8. And am not so into the Apple Pay & Apple Watch. The Apple Pay still not usable in Malaysia. Unless you are always travel overseas, and have foreign account, then it is applicable. For Apple Watch it’s quite interesting, but I sum it as a “beta” testing. Since it is 1st time Apple produce this kind of products. So let’s wait for another 3-4 years, maybe?

I have updated my iPhone 5S to iOS 8. Although not so much different from iOS 7, but still cool. They are a few features which is help my life easier. It is, now I can answer call from my iPad & Macbook even though my iPhone is not in my room (at least must at in the same internet connection). Not much iOS features can be experience on iPhone 5S. Plus, it makes your phone lag some times.
