I bought an SSD from Taobao months ago. It was on sale at that time. I thought it is a good deal. I paid RMB399. Convert it to CAD $75. Compared the price on Amazon.ca, $102.94. I did get a great deal.
I installed it on my desktop yesterday.
Look at what I got.

The PC I am using right now is more than six years. I checked my blog and found the post of flash the bios in Feb 2013. I did a search in my Gmail. Wow, I found the receipt which I made the order on NCIX. NCIX has closed for years already.
There are three items. All are running on my desktop now.

Western Digitial Caviar Blue 1TB (HDD)
AMD A8-3870K Black APU Quad Core Processor and MSI A55M-P33 mATX FM! Motherboard (MoBo CPU bundle)

7) Look at the back panel of the router and hold the power plug and router.
Plug the power, watch the lights of the panel, they are all on, then all dark. The LAN port with cable is on, then off. ( Hit the enter Key now). There are only about 4 seconds for me to run the command. So I prepare the command before the step.

Last weekend, I went to the Fido store at the Brentwood town center. My old cellphone is Jianguo YQ601. I used almost two years.
Now I feel the old one is too slow and its battery can only run 4 to 6 hours. Just one week before, I received the txt message from Fido. It gave me an exclusive promos. Two years plan, free LG Q6 smartphone. Small plan is enough. So I bought this LG Q6 at the store.
