Here’s something to keep your computer desk tidy and free up some space. The Samsung Space Monitor, a minimalist design monitor that let you reclaim your work space.
In a side-by-side comparison on a 47.2 inch x 19.7 inch (120cm x 50cm) desk, the Samsung Space Monitor provides up to 40 percent more usable surface area than a conventional monitor of equivalent size – and makes it that much easier to maintain a clean desk.
When not in use, the monitor could be pushed back to sit flat against a back wall and leave your entire work surface clear. When it’s time for use, the unique arm stand allows the monitor to be easily tilted or extended from the wall.
The Samsung Space Monitor will become available from 25 March 2019. Pre-order is now on. The 27 inch and 32 inch model will retail at S$728 and S$898 respectively.

Personally, I’m a bit disappointed. It is sad to see the most retweeted tweet title being bought using money. So long as you are rich, you can get that title. Sigh.
There’s no doubt that Yusaku Maezawa will honour his tweet and give out 1 million yet to 100 people. But the problem with this is that we can be sure there will be scammers trying to copy him. It’s not every day that a billionaire give out free money on social media.
I don’t remember what happened almost 10 years ago when I moved my web hosting from Dreamhost to HostGator. I know it wasn’t a smooth process but I don’t remember it to be this tedious. Maybe also because back then I was just migrating a few years worth of data. This time round, I’m migrating more than 10 years worth of data.
I tried using the default WordPress export feature. But it seems like it wasn’t able to take the load. The process keeps on time out. Since the export feature is able to pick up from where it stopped if I restart the process, I simply didn’t search for an alternative and keep restarting the process whenever it time out. BAD IDEA. I must have restarted the process more than 20 times.
Long story short, never ever do that. In the end, some data were not copied over.
I tried copying the entire database server and file folder from my old web host and copy them over manually. That that created some issues too. For some weird reasons, I can’t upload any files to WordPress after I copied the old database over.
So finally, I decided to use the default export feature to just copy the database entires. Then I manually FTP the files over to my new web host. Tada. Finally done. Sort of.
I’m still fine tuning the site. Trying to find a new WordPress theme. It’s been a long time since I changed my WordPress theme. My old theme doesn’t load well on some mobile devices. So I need to find a new theme that is mobile responsive. In the mean time, I’ll use this basic theme first.
OK, next step is to cancel my old web host. Goodbye HostGator. Hello Vodien.
PS: Note to self, you’ll need this link next time when you migrate to a new host.
