Followings are some of the questions I spent most of my time, contemplating, reading, watching when I am not working on engineering/techy stuffs. These are more for myself not to forget about the thread of my thought. Just in case there is somebody who is seeking to have the answer to the same questions.. or have interests in the similar topics in this page, just try to
use these as a kind of keywords to search more information in your search engine. I am also using this page as a keyword finder for further search. Now as I get older, I found myself more absent-minded. My brain require more frequent 'refresh' or sometimes 'rebooting' :)
