IT IS GLAD TO BE BACK!!!

Windows Crashing after Windows Update error

Windows Crashing after Windows Update error

Thanks to Microsoft Update, a “routine” update from Microsoft crashed my PC to an infinite reboot loop. There are several users who experienced the same or similar problems and unfortunately there was no fix to it becuase it would NOT let you access safe mode or restore from a previous point. The only way to fix the issue was to completely reinstall Windows 7 which means will wipe any data in your hard drive. The good news was, all my files and pictures were still intact. I was lucky to have an IT friend who pulled out all my files before we reinstalled the OS.  But the whole process took more than a month since other things in life got in the way.

if you have a Windows 7 or Windows 8 System be weary about your Microsoft Updates. Make sure to always have a restore point and back up your data.More information regarding this issue can be read at  Windows Crashing after Windows Update error

Now that’s out of the way, I would like to plug my Local 3DS Street pass. StreetPass is a feature for the Nitendo 3DS system to allow users to meet and exchange data with other Nitendo 3DS users. A Nitendo 3DS user can connect with another StreetPass user within a 20-30 Feet radius. Many of the Nitendo 3DS games benefits with pinging as many StreetPass Mii characters (Mii – being a users created avatar) and they even have downloadable games created solely for the Mii StreetPass Plaza characters such as Find Mii and Puzzle Swap.  For more information about StreetPass and 3Ds games read  http://nintendo.wikia.com/wiki/StreetPass

In the Southern California region, the most popular monthly StreetPass event was the Los Angeles Street pass that was often held in a mall inside the Little Tokyo District.  Living in San Diego, travelling to LA every month was just not convinient, not to mention there is also a huge Nitendo 3DS community that resides in my city.   Luckly StreetPass San Diego was formed. The monthly meet up has been around for at leat 2 years or more or less but has gradually gained momentum under David’s (can’t remember his last name) and his teams organization. Recently most of the Streetpass Events are being heled inside the beautiful newly built San Diego Public Library located downtown. At the 9th floor auditorium right underneath the steel sphere.

The events are fun, often with competitions and raffle prizes. And the occasionnal home backed cupcakes Today I wanted to share pictures from Sunday’s March 16th event.
