Goodbye year 2007 :_(

It's year end again. I still remember last year I was struggling to finish my study and I bought 2 bookshelf from Ikia using my best car.

For me 2007 is not a very good year and luckily it's also not very bad.

Career:

Well 2007 year is one of the most busiest year. I start with five main projects in hand and until today I still have two and it will going to finish soon. Too bad to said that the reward is less than the contribution :_|. I hope it will be better next year.

Love:

Ok, I had promised everyone that I will give everyone summon this year and I still failed to do that :_|. The fortuneteller had told me that I will getting married on year 2008. I hope he is correct :)

health:

No much problem just getting old. After not taking MC for so many years, finally I utilized one this year ;). Start to have some old man symptoms like back pain. And just for your information, don't worry about my litter brother, still strong like last 10 years, wah ha ha ha...

Money:

Money is always not enough especially when you didn't get mid year bonus/increment :). Maybe will try to find a new high paid job :).

As for conclusion, year 2007 is not on my side but it's also not too bad for me. Hope 2008 year will be more better and wish all my dreams come true next year.

Happy new year everyone!

Fish Leong - Worship



你挥霍了我的崇拜;
我戒掉了我的溺爱


I don't really how to translate these words perfectly, here is the translation that I can manage to write:

You overspent my worship on (you);
I stop my love on (you).


Very lovely poem.

Saving SEG meter

Mission: Saving SEG speedometer

Code name: Road runner

Symptom: As refer to my previous post about my ever make best car, my SEG is running at around 140km/h at 5th gear with 3000 RPM. I hope it’s true, but I know there is something wrong with my meter.

Action: I had been asking around the spare part shop to get a new meter but none of them selling and they told me the meter is very expensive if I want to get a new one. The cheaper way is get it from car scrap. Searching around internet and forum but get none positive result. Finally talk to a mechanic and he told me that there is a PCB board behind the meter, since I’m best electronic engineer in town  I plan to save my meter with all the knowledge I have.

Unscrew all the screw on my car dashboard (total got 6 screws) and unplug the cables (total three cables), the dashboard is detached from the car. Everything looks fine on the flexible plastic PCB behind the meter. So I plan to open the plastic cover of the dashboard. Two screws and compression fitting (not sure how to call that kind of connection :p). Once the cover is removed, the meter is now exposed. There are four screws at the back of the speedometer, so I unscrew it and the speedometer is detached. Looking behind the meter, there is a PCB board. No cool solder was found, no burned component, also no lose connection. Almost give up with the saving mission. Suddenly I notice a black material on the top of the meter. Using a multimeter to measure the connection between the two points. A very funny reading come out, 1.4kohms. Finally I got it.




The resistor behind the meter is 3.9kohms, and the black material is “eating” the PCB track and leaving 1.4kohms. So the additional resistance is causing my speedometer running at around 40% higher speed. 1.4/3.9 = 36%, so that the source of the problem.

Since the track can’t be repair, I just solder a small wire to replace the broken track and the mission is complete buy putting back everything to the car.

Result: No need to say too much, my SEG got it correct speed again.
