Converge Speed update

Image
  I recently updated my router to an Asus TUF Gaming AX3000 I'm still on the FIBERX 2500 plan which according to their site  will give me 100 Mbps I picked this router to future proof things since it supports Wifi 6.  I dont have a wifi 6 phone at home yet. I wonder what the speeds would be when i finally get one..

Cryptocurrency boom

A few years back, I didn't believe in cryptocurrency. it was like a fad - and like any other fad, it will soon fade and die. A few friends have been encouraging me to get into it but I wont. The old man in me believed it was the stable stocks and bonds that will make great investments. I started trading stocks in 2017. The dividends, are small - a few hundred pesos each year but  the price of those stocks keep on dropping. Philippine stocks were at their highest when I started. By March 2020, some of my stock investments are at their lowest. The price of Bitcoin (BTC) Ethereum (ETH) and even Dogecoin (DOGE) have been going up this 2020 and 2021 but its a rollercoaster ride. Last Friday (May 7, 2021) The price of DOGE went up from 0.58 to as high as 0.73 I NEED TO BUY CRYPTO. I added funds then waited for the "right time" That "right time" for me came on 10th of May. I bought DOGE for 0.4995 It was a BIG MISTAKE. It went down to as low as 0.350 in the next few da

Pulling the trigger

Image
  I had a Facebook account since the "Mafia Wars" days. I loved posting stuff too much that i know its annoying already. I have a small circle of "friends". They were the first people I added on Facebook but as I jumped from one call center to another, reconnected with old acquaintances and met people along the way, my friend list grew. At the start, i loved seeing my "friends" posts but i also started seeing garbage from people i dont really care about. tags and stuff started popping up left and right. The finale of the series I was following was spoiled by a post on Facebook! I dont know what exactly triggered it but I deactivated my Facebook account around 2013. I activated it every few months to check. Eventually I forgot about it.  Fast forward to 2021.. I have decided I dont need this account anymore.  *Mafia wars is not a historical war.

Converge

  I've been using Converge for a few months now and I really like their service.  They send SMS alerts when they detect downtime in your area.  They have a Viber account that gives Service Advisory.  Their App shows you your bill and lets you pay it ..and of course, FAST INTERNET!! They debut on the stock market back in Oct 27. I dont own shares yet. I should buy some soon.
