About This Blog

I write about things I find interesting, stuff that I’m repairing or modding and more recently, I post a photograph I’ve taken.

Financial disclosure
I have purchased most of the stuff that I write about, except, for example, things like this. None of the stuff has been received for payment for an endorsement.

As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. When you click on a product link on lesliewong.us that goes to Amazon.com, the link contains my referral ID, which gives me a piece of the action if you buy something from that visit – A minuscule… a very small piece. My Amazon Associates earnings from May 2, 2014 to June 30, 2017 (3 years, 1 month, 27 days) was $10.36. $10.36 would buy a Double-Double, fries and a shake at In-N-Out and you would still have $1.93 left!

Technical Notes
This is a WordPress 6.1.1 powered blog, hosted on an Amazon EC2 T4g.small instance.

I recently switched to an Amazon EC2 t4g.small (Arm-based AWS Graviton2 processor) instance from a t4g.micro because the t4g.micro instance was crashing a couple of times a week. I suspect it was running out of memory and gradually slowing because of the 2GB swap file. I didn’t have that problem when it was running on a t2.micro but I don’t seem to be experienced enough to sort it.

  1. Hi Leslie!

    This new style is interesting, too.

    But, I’ve “lost” your webcam access. Or, have you withdrawn it?
