I got M1 Mac Mini. The major disadvantage of this computer is costly storage. That is around AUD for $300 for 256GB. In my case, I upgraded the base model from 256GB to 512GB, that is already cost me $300. Because the internal storage is much faster than the external storage, I think that is already about seven times. I believe I do not have many programs to be installed. However, I got many data required to store, such as photos, video, and source codes. In this case, I believe the external NVMe SSD via thunderbolt 3. It has 1Gbits speed. That is fast enough for reading and writing data files. Lastly, it got an aluminum case, and it looks reliable and cool. It is only $300 for 1TB for the price, which is a much better deal than the internal storage.
Inkspace is an opensource alternative of Illustrator. I have used this application for years. However, I got the problems in their MacOS version. Because it needs to use XQuartz server, sometimes, the app cannot start because of XQuartz.
Recently, Inkspace got a new version 1.0. That is a native application. It does not require XQuartz anymore. Thus, I have not experienced that problem anymore. Moreover, that is very much faster too. I like it too.
Although we are getting our live back to normal, but that is still a new normal. I am still not able to go my church in person, due with the government COVID regularations. And I think that has to been like this, protecting everyone. Thus, every sunday, I need to watch a youtube livestream of my church. That is too bad, I got 16 years ago TV. It cannot use YouTube. At the end, I bought a Chromecast from JB Hifi for $59. That is a very reasonable price to make my TV to watch YouTube. Moreover, I can cast 7Plus or ABC iView to my TV, so I can watch the news anytime in my TV. So, that is a very useful tool for me under the "New Normal"
I don't know why my Xiaomi mi 9t pro cannot connect to my car recently, and I got Error 16 - Communication Error in android auto. I got a big red screen in the android auto app. Initially, I thought that is the problem of my COVIDSafe app because it runs in the background. Then I tried to uninstall that to see whether the problem is solved. That is not nothings changed. So, I re-installed the COVIDSafe App. Finally, I remember I enabled the Dual Apps feature in MIUI so that I can have two IG apps opened at the same time. So, I went to settings->Dual App to delete the dual feature, and then android auto is working again!
Contracting the surface which has the droplets from those people got coronavirus, that is possible to get the virus. Thus, stop the virus spreading, in Australia, a lot of shops are prefer to use Contactless payment. As a result, Contactless payment became the mainstream payment now. I think I only used cash only once per week during the six weeks. So, I do not need to get the money from ATM for weeks. I feel Australia became cashless. I like electronic payments. Firstly, I can track my expenses quickly, and I need to get the records from my bank. Moreover, I prefer to bring a card rather than a pocket of coins. Lastly, cards are cleaner than coins and notes.
