Bigo Live, the Snapchat of SE Asia

unnamed

The Bigo Live app is just getting popular, it seems. After testing it for a day, I think this will shut down Snapchat in Thailand before it ever gets really started. Actually, I think if they can find a way to pay users, either through ad sharing or tipping, or a combination of both, this could possibly be a threat to Facebook. It just suits Thailand very well.

The downside? An even more unfair User Agreement than Facebook, which is saying a lot.

It is inspiring a lot of ideas!!

Finding where Bill’s Bar was located.

Note to self: Look for the yellow building with slit windows. Surugamachi 2? Goddamn Japanese street numbers.

Bill's Bar Sound, Nara ( ????)

DJ Enferno – Higher

Top notch performance by classically trained pianist and DJ extraordinaire, Enferno. He has a launchpad to launch his launchpad on the launchpad, if you know what I mean. At my peak, which was very short (and approximately 600 years ago), the best I could do was two Discmans, a dual tape deck, and two PS1s. This guy is so fucking awesome.

If you liked his song and have a love for Hova like I do, you also need to see this one: F*ckwithmeyouknowigotit

Fixing my trusty ASUS laptop

…and installing an SSD at the same time. This particular laptop has served me for seven years already and I would normally not bother, but SSDs are cheap and it will make a good Minecraft rig for the kids. I already installed Linux and Windows 10. God bless KMS Pico.

The problem, as it turned out, was a small piece of ABS from a case peg that had broken off and settled inside the cooling fan. Made the whole rig sound like it was going to explode.

720, 960, 2048 pixels wide

These are the optimal sizes for photos you upload to Facebook. I had no idea. I knew that FB automatically resizes and formats your photos, but did not know these were the magic numbers. Also:

  • Resize your photo to one of the following supported sizes:
    Regular photos: 720px, 960px, 2048px (width)
    Cover photos: 851px by 315px
  • If you use a 2048px photo, select the High Quality option when you upload
    To avoid compression when you upload your cover photo (emphasis mine), make sure the file size is less than 100KB
  • Save your image as a JPEG with an sRGB color profile
