一段驚濤駭浪的過去在這裡凋零。

藍綠政客們想要怎麼製造仇恨分裂國民是憲法給他們的合法投機空間,而過去曾付出青春跟血汗抵禦外敵的基層國軍海陸空官士兵永遠比政客們高貴。

新筆電入列:Surface Pro (2017)

市面上一堆選擇,劉選手為什麼買Surface?

DSC02769

真的很單純。因為它(1)內建立架、(2)Windows/Office不打折、(3)筆寫介面。

有立架,這就打垮一堆平板。沒立架的平板真的很煩。透過第三方殼套取得的立架,不是爆貴就是爆醜。

Android平板的中文輸入種種不便、功能層層限制,算了。Apple很優秀,但我只想維持單一OS,不想給自己添麻煩。

雖然我的繪畫天份是零,但是筆寫介面對我依然很重要,是我生活裡很重要的部份。讀電子書(特別是PDF格式)做註記、或是把腦袋裡的概念隨手即興畫成圖像來幫助自己思考。這是我使用舊款清貧Surface 3時養成的習慣跟依賴性。

現役Surface 3跑Atom,很夠我用了。奇怪的是我並沒有拿它去蓋泡麵墊湯鍋,但是它卻自己開了一條縱貫線,螢幕裂出一條幾近完美的對角線,失去手寫筆功能,也不知何時會整台崩潰還灑一地玻璃。該是換新的時候了。

原本要買搭載陽春M3處理器的清貧版Surface Pro,但是預購打折有贈品,就選了i5/4/128。這一代的Surface i5沒有風扇,所以很安靜。這一點我很喜歡。

搭配現役藍牙小紅點鍵盤後更方便、更有彈性。

另同時購入無線顯示轉接器,還不錯用。

預計服役期限:五年,至2022/6/27。

Gen-8音響新成員先行發表

DSC02761

按照計劃,劉選手正建構中的第八代音響將由互不依存且可各自獨立運作、但也可串聯合體一起運作的三個部份組成:Summer Module、Winter Module、及Mobile Module。全員皆需符合Hi-Res高解析音樂規範。

其中Winter Module於2017/6/22到貨。小巧的床頭音響型式。預定每年11月至次年4月氣溫較低月份使用。今年(2017)12月份Winter Module諸項配件到齊後再正式發表。

前七代簡介如下:

第一代:單聲道廢五金級唱盤;家人的處分品。後來被家裡大人給扔了。心碎。

第二代:二聲道廢五金級唱盤真空管音響;也是家人的處分品。後來也被家裡大人給扔了。心碎。

第三代:便宜的手提式二聲道音響。照例也被家裡大人給扔了。心碎。

第四代:Sony床頭音響。用太久故障,報廢處分。

五代:Yamaha劇院。遇雷擊,全套一發廢機。心碎。

第六代:二聲道NAD後級、Yamaha前級、Harmon Kardon CD唱盤。搬家售出處分。

第七代:Yamaha劇院。服役中。

Surface 3: Plugged in but not charging

I know you are so frustrated to arrive at this page. I know; trust me. I’ve been there.

I’m not a pro; I don’t have any scientific explanation for the causes of the famous “plugged in but not charging” issue.

I’ve tried everything out there only to prove most of them fake hopes.

 

My “not charging” scenario:

When my Surface was on, it won’t charge, no matter what I do. However, it could be charged when completely powered down; sometimes.

 

My solution:

Important: each of the following steps may or may not at all be a relevant factor to the solution, but these steps are what I’ve taken. Here is how I solved this issue trial-n-error fashion.

 

Perhaps you have already updated the battery driver for more than 6 times and is feeling stupefied and is asking God “why me”.  Well, I’m not going to tell you to update battery driver for the 7th time.

Here we go.

1. Having proven that the original charging cable came with the Surface box failed to charge, I turned to other USB cables to try my luck; Sony and other unknown manufacturers alike, they didn’t work. So I thought about the higher quality USB cable that I bought for my home stereo system.

2. I drained my Surface 3 by running video until it shut itself off. Then I charged it over night. When fully charged, I drained it again. I used my hi-fi grade USB cable to charge, with adapter connected directly to wall socket that also supplies power to my hi-fi system. I flipped the power plug polar once or twice.

3. After the 3rd full-draining, I left my Surface 3 at the corner for one full day (at least, I guess).

4. In desperation, I even said to it: “Maybe I should let you go and buy a new one that have all the new tricks.”

5. Full-charge. After which, it worked. It now charges when running. It now charges when the adaptor is connected to any other multi-socket and/or wall socket in my little joint.

 

However, it works only when using my hi-fi grade USB cable. The “plugged in but not charging” issue still re-appears whenever I use other regular USB cables; the ones that have black rubber coating. To make sure best connection, my hi-fi USB cable’s micro end is made significantly “tighter” than the regular micro USB cables that come from appliance/PC manufacturers. This observation presents an obvious conclusion: in addition and not limited to driver, firmware, and power module quality issue, we can not rule out the possibility that USB cable quality may be a suspect, or an accomplice at least, to the seemingly ever-transcendent “plugged in but not charging” issue.

 

Surface users sharing this same issue, please don’t feel lonely; this issue is not unique to Surface devices; it can be found on other brands; even premium models from highly respectable manufacturers.

 

I hope my redneck, hillbilly, duct tape style fix can get you out of the same ____ hole that bogged me down.
