Modern Technology

Last Friday, we were at one of the Toyota car sales and service centre and we got interested in one of the new cars in the show room. 
It is the Toyota Vios. 
 The men were interested in the car but I was more interested in taking snapshots.
 It is equipped with a panorami view monitor.
 And a digital video recorder.
 On another day, we were at a shopping mall and this Kawasaki motorcycle and a car were on displayed.
We were travelling on this road when this "motorcycle" appeared in front of us. Told hubby to slow down for me to take a snapshot of this 3 wheels motorcycle.

For some time, my desktop computer was acting cranky. Sometimes, it will decide to restart on its own and this message will appear on the monitor screen.
I sent the PC to the computer clinic for a checkup and they found nothing wrong with it. The problem went into hiding. I brought it back and it was behaving normal for a while. Few weeks later, it started acting cranky again and it got worse.
I took some snapshots of my computer screen to show to the computer "doctor". Finally, the culprit was identified - it was the faulty display card! The "doctor" did the necessary operations and my computer was returned to me in good working condition. Everything back to normal.

The following photos are for joining Tuesday's Treasures & Image-in-ing.
Saw these antique floral ceramic tiles in Lim Ko Pi.
They make beautiful decorations on the wall.

We who believe are carefully joined together with Christ
as parts of a beautiful, constantly growing temple for God.

  8. New cars are such fun to look at, not fun at all to pay for! It sounds typical that the computer problem would hide when the computer doctor was doing an exam, i'm glad it finally surfaced and was repaired.

    Lovely tiles, i like using tiles as accents instead of over a whole area of wall.

  13. These tiles are so pretty! I have been looking to buy some for a back splash behind our sink. It is so true that our tech stuff seems to KNOW when it is going to the repair man, and will then behave! We have had this twice this fall with our car! As soon as it gets to the garage, it behaves. This black motorcycle looks like a mean fighting machine for bad guys!

  17. Es una suerte que se haya encontrado la solución al problema del ordenador.

    Los azulejos son preciosos para decorar paredes y darle un elegante toque.

    Me gusta el coche pero no me gusta conducir, por lo que no tengo pensamiento de comprar ningún coche por muy bueno que sea.

    Besos

  21. We just got a new Toyota, and I'm amazed at the technology incorporated into this car. Just for kicks, compare the car you learned to drive on with the one you saw at the dealership. For me at least, there's no comparison!

  25. The car looks cool and my cousin owns a similar Kawasaki Z bike. And the one on the road with three wheels is also super cool!
    Hope the problem with your pc is quite solved… I have faced similar issues when I used desktop, but ever had a serious problem with my laptop since 2011, when I shifted from desktop
