IT Guide: Use less Internet bandwidth for iPhones and iPads


I wrote two guides on how to use less Internet bandwidth for Windows machine and Android devices.  I am learning to use less bandwidth as being in Uganda, Internet is very expensive (1 GB = $15 USD!).  My wife uses an iPhone 4 and we have a wifi iPad 2 at home.  I will admit I am not an expert with iOS devices.  But this guide should give you a good start on how to limit your iOS devices from...

IT Guide: Use less Internet bandwidth for Windows 7


Compare to Canada and Singapore, Uganda’s Internet is expensive. We don’t have unlimited data. In order to reduce our cost, I started to configue my computer to use as little bandwidth as possible. There are obvious things I can do such as not watch videos or download big files online. I also configured my Windows 7 laptop to not use more data than I need. Here’s what I have...

IT Guide: Use less Internet bandwidth for Android Phones and Tablets


In order to limit our bandwidth usage in Uganda (and save a few bucks), I started to configue my Android phone, Samsung Galaxy S2, to use as little bandwidth as possible.

Monkey Business


Since we settled in Uganda, we had Vervet monkeys as neighbours.  They often travel in packs and will swing past our front porch.  A local told us they are harmless. However, Wai Jia and I stayed a bit far from them in case they bite. The younger Vervets loved to play and wrestled with one another. Here are some pictures and a few videos of them in action.  We always eat our breakfast outdoor...

The Call


I packed Oswald Chambers’ two books in one, So Send I You and Workmen of God, with us to Uganda. One of the joyful moments we have every morning is reading one chapter for devotion. Since following his devotion’s My Utmost for His Highest, I enjoyed reading Oswald Chambers’ writings. His words bring clarity to Spiritual truths in such a profound way I don’t get from reading other authors. I am...
