Gmail accidentally resetting accounts

Seems like a bug started to do some exploit of it owns in Gmail system. As many as 500,000 Gmail users lost access to their inboxes, I am not one of them after checking out on the gmail account. I have been using outlook for years now, which has downloaded all my gmail mails.

Slashdot.org - Gmail Accidentally Resets 150,000 Accounts
Many users have reported loss of their Gmail accounts, as they signed in to find their email accounts reset — losing years of email history. This appears to be a result of a bug which treats existing owners as new users. For those affected, Google is currently trying to resolve the problem. For the rest of us, perhaps this is a timely reminder to backup our data and be less trusting of the cloud.”

Update: No fix yet, but Google's revised its estimate as to how many users might have been affected by the issue -- "less than 0.08%" -- which means we're probably looking at closer to 150,000 individuals, rather than 500,000. We're assuming that the revised estimate means that the initial count wasn't precise, and not that customers are ditching Gmail in droves.

Update 2: Google's provided promising but terribly vague guidance on when the situation will be resolved: "Google Mail service has already been restored for some users, and we expect a resolution for all users in the near future. Please note this time frame is an estimate and may change."

Fish spa at Kg. Luanti Baru– off Ranau

Went to Ranau yesterday (Saturday) to go the fish spa near Sabah Tea. It was located just 10 or 20 meter after Sabah Tea Entrance.. wait.. maybe more.. I am not sure but yes it was just after Sabah Tea Entrance:

Google Earth Coordination:

Garmin:

See it is just after Sabah tea entrance but not sure how many meter… ok nvm. I heard of this place like since last year and never did try out fish spa as in my mind.. is it really clean? or Safe? After google’ing up a few sites and yes seems to be safe but not for the fish. You need to throw the fish away (or kill it and not eat it), as it cannot be eaten anymore.

Click here for google result on “Is fish spa safe?”

It is like using the same needle on another person after the doctor use it on you. Would you want to continue on using the needle? But as for the fish, yes it is safe to go try it out just for fun. Where I did that and yes it was fun haha plus I could not stop laughing because it was like someone tickling my feet.. Anyway check out the pictures of the area I took

After parking your car, you will see the entrance to the fish spa area and few small stalls selling some local hand made stuff.

DSC_0007

Some of the rules you need to know, and yes only 15 minutes spa..

Just after you bought the ticket from the main entrance into Kg. Luanti there (Forgot to mention that) you need to register yourself in this boot. They will announce your ticket number then it is your turn to go down too into the river.

No faces.. just to be fair with everyone else. Sorry I forgot to take picture of Griselda, Ben & Irene.. Because I just took picture of the fish lol But we had fun getting sucked by the fish, they have no teeth but it might still hurt a lot after a while haha If you have a small stool and plan to go there.. Bring it because it might hurt after a while standing there.

Here is a video of how it looks like:

None of us was in the video because I only thought of recording after we finish..

 

DSC_0037I took a picture of Griselda hehe

 

We did do Sabah tea after that but just to check out the place, I didn’t really feel like taking any pictures there. But on the way home, we did take some pictures together.. only wish I brought my tripod.

War in Office

Updates – all the poison are being taken, there might be some result but no. I do not know where those rats died, but the food and the poison is gone. None of it was taken inside the office area, but in the corridor area yes. So A & B were move towards the corridor area for the rats to finish it.

I don’t think there be anymore rats in the office room area but will make sure no new hole leading into the office for the rats to enter.

War in the office–RATS

I am going to war with the rats this time, they have been running wild lately disturbing the peace and order in our small office. They messed up my phone wire, the cables, even the carpet is not safe with them around. They have done so much damage and yes it is time to attack them back. Back then with the weapon guy help I manage to secured the bio-weapon he sold to me to defend against the black army. But he seems to be missing for few months now, with little help now I had to use what is left in our weapon inventory.

To my luck I have found one of the best factory manufactured weapon created by Fumakilla weapon industry with some leftover stock which I hope should be enough to last the war for few days.

Now to make sure the rats be killed by this weapon we be using a bait to attract them from my lunch box I made in the morning before going to work:

DSC_0034

Bread with egg and butter, I am very sure the rats with be attracted by the smell and taste of my lunch!

Now to prepare them, I got to fuse in both bio-chemical weapon and my lunch to make it work. It is not a easy job but I got the experience to do so, plus with my food knowledge I am very sure this will work. I have created 3 war zone plate form for the rats to come and get poisoned by my weapon.

DSC_0035 DSC_0036 DSC_0037

 

I have place 3 area in the war zone area as shown on the office layout:

layouot

All 3 area are the most likely area they will hang out after being inform by my intelligent officer who scouted the office. I have place all the plat form there and took image of all 3 location:

Wikipedia Rats
Rats
are various medium-sized, long-tailed rodents of the superfamily Muroidea. "True rats" are members of the genus Rattus, the most important of which to humans are the black rat, Rattus rattus, and the brown rat, Rattus norvegicus. Many members of other rodent genera and families are also referred to as rats, and share many characteristics with true rats.

Rats are typically distinguished from mice by their size; rats are generally large muroid rodents, while mice are generally small muroid rodents. The muroid family is very large and complex, and the common terms rat and mouse are not taxonomically specific. Generally, when someone discovers a large muroid, its common name includes the term rat, while if it is small, the name includes the term mouse. Scientifically, the terms are not confined to members of the Rattus and Mus genera, for example, the pack rat and cotton mouse.

Best burger in Kota Kinabalu

Finally manage to try the big burger I been hearing since last year in Tanjung Aru Plaza stall area. There are 2 burger shop, don’t go for the bigest burger signboard, as that is just the normal burger(not that I am trying to promote the other one, but the reason I am posting this is for the big burger and not the small burger). Anyway the stall name is… erm.. ok just have a look at the picture..

 

DSC_0120

 

DSC_0152 DSC_0150

The price range is from RM5 to RM17, so like that can you order with this amount? I took the one which cost us RM16 and see for yourself how is it cook and at what size lol. I got worried when I saw 3 plates being prepare there at first  and asked the guys there is that for 1 plate or 3 plate?? Because we only ordered 1 burger and thought of sharing it with 3 of us together and we were the first to order..

DSC_0126DSC_0127DSC_0131DSC_0132DSC_0133DSC_0134DSC_0135

I would like to advise you to bring a wet tissue along when you go to this stall, make sure to take out a bit before you start eating. Because it is going to be a really messy when you start eating it haha

DSC_0139 DSC_0146 DSC_0147

It was really a messy dinner for us, but the burger was just really good and not that I didn’t want to order another one.. but can I finish it?

DSC_0160DSC_0162
Griselda had the last bite, the burger was splinted into 6 slice and 2 of each for me, Griselda, & Aubrey

 

I would try to go for the rm10 or was it rm9 burger if you are alone and feel like eating a big burger. I would not dare try to eat the RM16 all by myself, why am I saying the price and not the burger name? I forgot the name, see it on the menu I took above if you want to know what is the RM16 called lol

How to get there? well here is a picture of Google Earth:
