Wow... rain is freezing as it hits the ground.
Not that I have ton experience driving in many different weather condition but today was the worst.

Not just the roads but everything outside is so slippery coated with ice. It was hell of a drive coming back from the airport. Most dangerous going down the ramp of RD flamming bridge. I could only pass with help of two police officers pushing cars over ice.

Careful everyone in Pittsburgh.

It has a lot of external wear but I've been taking nice photo until recent. I can send example shots on request.

KEH quote is $74 for body and $47 for lens in "Bargain" condition.
I'd be happy to part with everything at $100.

#김밥   (Gim bap)
Korean favorite picnic food. Except I didn't go out for a picnic and just wanted to make/eat. There are some standard ingredients but it's a sea weed roll with more or less anything you like. In my case, mayo tuna, cheddar cheese, sesame leaf, pickled daikon, burdock plant(?), spinach and cucumber.

Lately, cooking is becoming more fun. Just like the old days when I was living out alone and cooked most of my food (자취).

More thoughts on #Chromecast  

TL;DR;
Youtube app casting is great from android devices, very limited from iphone, and even worse from youtube.com. That is, if you want more than "play this video right now".

Long version
Playing youtube video on TV is cool but often you want to leave the current stream playing and add your's to the "TV Queue". But to even get there you need to connect your device to chromecast without bothering the current stream. Guess what, it's only possible on android devices. iphone's youtube app and youtube.com doesn't support it.

andoid youtube app
Open the youtube app. Don't have to go into a particular video just touch the cast button. Now for every video you have a choice to cast it right away or add to "TV Queue". Also you will see "TV Queue" in the left side menu once you're connected. Disconnecting works smoothly as well, just touch the cast button once more.
Connecting, disconnecting, and adding to queue all without interfering with the current stream. 

iphone youtube app
To connect your iphone to chromecast, you have to go to a video and touch the cast button. This will stop the current stream and play the new video. Once you get it connected, you can add videos to "TV Queue" by touching "share". Now, to disconnect go to a video and touch the cast button again. Unfortunately it stops the current stream while disconnecting.
Very incomplete connecting, disconnecting, and add to "TV queue" support.

youtube.com
This is the only option you have with you're chromebook, laptop, and desktop. There is simply no concept of connecting, disconnecting, and adding things to queue. All you can do is play video right now. Also no way to view the current queue. Only thing similar is that you can play a playlist from youtube.com to stream videos in a row.

Finally got my #Chromcast.
After playing with it for a couple of hours with my android phone, android tablet, chromebook, windows laptop and windows desktop these are my thoughts.

Just as everybody praised, streaming Youtube video through in-app casting was great. Equally great from all devices. Streaming from browser tab was where it got a little more interesting.

Android phone and tablet.
I don't think android chrome supports casting a tab. But I don't really see that as the popular use case anyway.

Chromebook
This one is a lower end samsung chromebook. Casting static content from a tab worked well until I started moving the screen around. The huge lag between movement and screen update was very bothering. On the other hand, TV isn't exactly a device you want to read text with anyway. When it comes to casting video, chromebook simply didn't have the necessary computing power.

Laptop.
This one is a fairly highend samsung laptop running windows 8. Casting video from a tab (or even the entire desktop) worked well up to 480p. Any resolution above 480p stuttered badly while cast was blaming network speed. Considering that I was connect to 5GHz 802.11n network, it was a surprise.

Desktop.
This one is a highend intel machine running windows 7. Casting video from a tab worked well up to 720p. Even 720+ worked quite well with only a little bit of stuttering. This was even more surprising since the desktop was connected to the same wifi network as the laptop. Only explanation I could think of was the difference between single band and dual band connection.

Overall, casting Youtube from any device is great.
Casting video from a tab isn't as great, only works from a device with excellent network adapter.

Back to my laptop, while casting video in a tab on 720p CPU usage is around 45% and network upload is around 2Mbps. Doing the same on desktop uses little CPU and 2.7Mbps network upload.
Now I'll need to figure out what's causing the wifi bottleneck on my laptop.

#족발     (Jok bal) and etc
I never knew I could buy pig feet at Giant eagle. I was planning to cook Bossam this weekend but changed plans and tried Jokbal instead. Though it's very popular in Korea, I never cooked it myself nor seen it being cooked. Also, I couldn't find all the ingredients (herbs) at the super market, so I had no choice but hoping it's okay to skip a couple.
After 4 hours of preping/cooking, I think I made the most wonderful Jokbal in the world. It was better than any other version I could imagine. Meanwhile, during all the waiting time in between I also made some side dishes out of fern brake and radish leaves.

Today was the final day of #WCS  Season 3 finals, top 16 players from WCS Korea, Europe, America gathered to crown the best of the best in #Starcraft2 . There were a lot of good games but I say semi-finals between Maru and Dear was the best.

TL;DR;
Wow, what a experience with #DirecTV.
First, accused of having bad credit.
Second, accused of not being able to read.
Really hope I don't have to call these guys again.

Long version:
I got DirecTV installation today. Having back some TV after a couple of month of nothing on the screen was sure good, but nothing ever works smoothly in the first run.

As the technician was installing the DVR I noticed it wasn't the newer Genie device but one of the older HD-DVRs. Genie is suppose to be the more expensive and better one which was free as a promotion. I also noticed that my order was listing the older device as well. So, as the technician left I started calling DirecTV customer service.

First answer I got is that my credit standing isn't good enough to get a Genie device and I'll have to pay $99. Though I haven't had tons of time to build up credit score in U.S. I'm sure I have enough to get a DVR. The only answer customer service gave me is that there's nothing she can do and gave me a different number to call.

The second call, on top of the inconvenient situation, the mic quality (or maybe verizon was messing up) was so horrible that understanding each word was so painful. I had to talk with this guy accusing that I was misreading the ads, ending up have to read every single letter on the online advertisement (on DirecTV homepage) to prove that it wasn't me having the problem. Than I got transferred.

The third person, thankfully didn't ask me too much of anything and placed an appointment to get the new Genie DVR, though I still had to wait for three 5 minute breaks while looking up things and setting up things.

My car had an engine problem a few days ago. After some web search this is where I found and was able to make a reservation the very next day. Though it took a little longer than first said to diagnose the problem, crew were very kind and explained everything well. After all the problem was cam sensor going bad. I got it replaced the same day and cost was less than expected. It was also a great experience picking up the car with all the graceful attitude.
