Anone Anone…

It’s a new semester and I still haven’t gotten a new laptop.  I’m living a cave man’s life at dorm. Worse, I only have one classes per day. I still don’t know when I’m gonna get a new laptop. I’m doing well with just a phone and I’ve gotten used to it.

I haven’t watch any anime since I lost my laptop. I’ll resume again when I get a new laptop and a new headphone. Ugh… I wish my parents would finally give me spending money for new gadgets.

Well, that’s about it. It’s a short boring post. Why do I even bother updating my blog when I know practically there’s no one to read it anyway.

A very important announcement

June 27 around 15:00-16:00 GMT+8:00, my laptop was stolen along with my external hard drive and headphones.

While the laptop isn’t that great of importance, the files it houses does. I’m not supposed to make this announcement but now that I’ve thought how great the damage the theft would incur, I now feel obliged to disclose as much as possible to what happened before the damages are done. To avoid finger-pointing, I won’t disclose how the theft happened.

We’ll start from the least important

More than two terabytes of projects are gone. These aren’t related to my academics and are just a hobby of mine. I do feel bad about it, though. Most of them are irreplaceable. Actually, nearly all of them are irreplaceable.

Most memes there are also lost and I don’t have backups of those at home.

Some save data of my games are also lost but I almost never play these days.

My friends’ email accounts is there. I’ve informed them to change their passwords immediately. The thief has access to the accounts but the important ones are protected with two-factor authentication.

Assuming he has my password to login

Because of lack of computer access, I am yet to start changing passwords. The laptop has my Last Pass credentials so he practically has access to all of my accounts not protected by two-factor authentication.

My computer at home can be remotely controled but I’ve shut off the ports to prevent anyone from doing so.

DNS settings of my domain is accessible. This means this site can be brought down in a few clicks without needing to hack anything.

The bigger issue

The laptop has my facebook data generated some two weeks ago. While my laptop is password-protected, that doesn’t stop anyone from plugging the hard drive in a different machine and mining data. The mined data may be leaked online which includes messages of everyone I’m connected to on facebook. While he doesn’t have to take actions like changing passwords, it is better he’s aware of the colateral damage done by the theft. I am in no way responsible beyond this for I am not in control anymore and anyone aware agree to waive their rights to pursue a case against me for leaked messages.

These are only possibilities. I’m not saying these will happen but I’m saying these might happen. This is as far as I know to what may occur. I do doubt the worst can be done but we never know what happens next.

Next actions

I don’t know but I will figure it out soon.

For starters, consulting with an expert before deciding for a more appropriate actions. The police has done their preliminary investigation and it is under my discretion to pursue a case or not. For now, my objective is to lower further damage before recovering the gadgets. Pursuing the case is a story yet to be told.

The damage is of small magnitude but may be worsen if an effort is made by the fugitive.

Projects Site Launched

Link: http://projects.ridon428.xyz/

Because of limitations with WordPress (actually, I’m just too lazy to explore it), I created a subdomain using WordPress Multi-site to create a dedicated page for my projects. This page will focus on everything I do. I won’t be specific with what I’ll be releasing but the categories should help you out.

To explain a few things: Fansub projects involve anime and subtitling while Karaoke projects involve music, animation, and subtitling.

Final word: I am not that active with projects so don’t expect to see much posts here.

Mid-year Term

Welp. After a one-week break, I’m back to school. While I’ll only be attending three-hour classes per day from Monday to Saturday, I’m still sad I never had a decent break. Although, after the first term of the next school year, I’ll be giving myself a three-month break. I just hope my parents agree on that. I’ve been studying for three years straight without having a decent break. Perhaps a change of pace would be nice. I’m already a year late so I know I should keep enrolling and finish my studies but I’ve lost interest to study for now.

The classes I’m taking this term are Advance Engineering Mathematics and Discrete Mathematics. It’ll be my first time taking those two but I’ll do my best to try and earn a high grade. By next term, I wish I can start taking my majors so I can finally advance to higher classes. But eh, with the Computer Engineering population in our school is getting lower, my chances of graduating sooner are getting slimmer. Not only that but the new curriculum for the upcoming college freshmen would be… fresh. This means I’ll have a harder time enrolling in to classes. Hopefully, there’s a way to transfer over to the new curriculum when that happens.

That’s it for this post. I know it’s a boring read but if you managed to reach this point, thank you for taking your time to read.

Relaunched Site

Welp. I finally got my chance to get my site back up. I reinstalled Windows on my desktop so I decided for a fresh install of WordPress.

There isn’t so much changes but I hope you like the header video. It took quite an effort to make that!

My site is not fully done yet. I still have to re-add and re-organize things like adding Discord invite links, contact information, and probably more. I’ll do them when I feel like it.
