1. It seems to me that when I say “Okay Google. Set my alarm 20 minutes from now.” when I’m not connected to the internet, the Google assistant is angry at me. But when I say the same thing when connected to the internet, the Google assistant is either afraid of me or friendly with me. I’m pertaining to her tone of voice.

2. Since I have KeyCDN up and running for BernardGo.com, I’m sure that most visitors from the Philippines are being served through the SSD-optimized edge servers in Hong Kong.

According to Google Maps, the distance from the Philippines to Hong Kong is 1,332 km (828 mi).

The distance from the Philippines to Singapore is 2,355 km (1,463 mi).

Even if my origin server is in Singapore, since Hong Kong is nearer to the Philippines, I will get served through Hong Kong if I visit my website. This is through the use of IP Anycast. It increases redundancy for uptime, reduces latency for speed, mitigates Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, and balances the load (load balancing) across multiple servers.

3. If an entry-level employee who is a top performer is earning an additional 1,000 USD every month and an additional 500–1,000 USD every three months as a performance bonus, then when I compare these to my long-term goals, these amounts are too low for the price you pay. You have to deal with a lot of shit to get these.

Now I’m not trying to avoid hard work. There’s got to be a better way of earning money even when you’re not working. You could be earning money while taking a shower, while eating, while sleeping, while meditating, while having sex, while doing a bunch of other important stuff according to your own values. It’s not totally passive income, but it’s infinitely better than dealing with shitty people, and being a cog in a wheel for the rest of your working life. Leverage.
