How do you know?
Your browser says there is no connection.
The router gives you an IP that starts with 169.X.X.X which means it hates you and won't allow you to use the internet.
This happens very often to me, especially if the router has been turned on non-stop for weeks or months. So the solution which I know most of us will do is reboot the router. That almost always solves the problem.
The problem is on public WiFi. It's a little more difficult to get the owner of the establishment to reboot the router. I tried this at my local mamak shop and the worers reply is that "Sorry. Boss takde. Tak tahu camner nak tutup and on balik router".
Example. Here's my settings:
The 188 is abitrary. You can choose any number between 1-255 except '1' because usually the router takes that IP number.
Advantage is pretty clear. Since no one else is connected except me, I have the internet all to myself :)
My usual snack while getting my internet fix at my mamak shop.

I am sure they will in the near future and I can't wait to use it then.
The above is my Petai plant delivered by DHL from Muar to Teluk Intan for RM 15.
No prizes for guessing petai is one of my favourite food and with the prices skyrocketing lately, I thought it would be nice to plant my own petai.
Anyway, when they do go nationwide, I will definitely use our own innovative local service PostoExpress. Seeing our currently bleak economic climate, it's good to support local !
Also, I don't mind earning extra cash delivering their stuff around my town on my bicycle !! :)
P/S: Their iOS app needs a bit of fine tuning as I couldn't select my address. It kept pointing to a school which is not where I am at.

At the post officenow to send a hgeavy package.
Ok la.. rm 31.80 to send 10 kg of parcel.
Hmmm here's an idea.. use the Uber model to get anyone interested in doing delivery within the area to make the delivery ad-hoc!
Name the service and app "UberPost Expresso". :)
Customers win coz they get their delivery fast and cheap. Wins for Motor cyclist, motorist without work can become part delivery workers to earn extra cash .
I for one wouldn't mind paying RM 20 for instance instead of RM 31.80.
Downside of course is the trust issue. Just like Uber, do I trust the rider/driver? But unlike Uber the dangers are less as it is the package at risk and not my person. All of it can be elleviated with driver/delivery rider ratngs on trustability and personal record.
Will be in direct competition with Dhl, post laju etc.
Good idea, yes?

Mineral water bottle RM 4.75
Fish (red eye guppies) RM 3.00
Perlite RM 7.95
Total RM 15.70
Price exclude water pump (not in picture) as I already have an old one lying around.
My only problem is the water pump is too big and powerful for this small system. I am manually scooping the water up a few times a day to the perlite for the moment. There are tiny holes made in the bottle cap so the water will slowly trickle down back to the fish.

One pin number is given in each Starbucks receipt meaning one device use only.
No sharing !!
Quite disappointing if you are there with more than one person.
Internet speeds? Starbucks Cameron Highlands still a little backwards with their internet. 1Mbps?? Probably a year ago it's ok.
My nasi lemak stall in Shah Alam is still 10x faster.. :(
Ok to be fair, Unifi is not yet here but old Streamyx is available in 4Mbps. Time to upgrade.
Asked for their members card and it's now RM 20 to get one. I got one last time for free after buying some coffee.
