Wish fulfilled with the arrest

My kids held up signs saying "Arrest Park Geun-Hye" at the rally on December 3, 2016

Early this morning, Park Geun-Hye has been arrested on multiple charges including bribery. She had been ousted from presidency just 3 weeks ago. Millions of people, including my kids as shown here, had been calling for this to happen for the last several months. Things are progressing - wish us luck.

The impeachment is complete

My kids at the rally and candlelight vigil held near Cheongwadae, December 3, 2016

Less than an hour ago, the Supreme Court approved the motion to impeach the Korean President Park Geun-Hye decided by the National Assembly on December 9, 2016. Much of the nation had been calling for her resignation or impeachment for several months due to the corruption and mishandling of national affairs. That included the rally and candlelight vigil held just a week prior to the National Assembly's motion, which saw more than two million people gathering (including my family) near Cheongwadae, the presidential palace in Seoul. We still have a long way to go, but at least we're moving forward. That's a good thing.

Piecing back shredded documents as a play

Something to be shredded - Celine's drawing

Paper shredders have been used to get rid of sensitive documents for quite some time, but simple ones are barely better than ripping papers by hand. This was clearly proven a couple of months ago when the Korean cable TV channel JTBC's news team was able to recover crucial evidence relating to the ongoing Park Geun-hye - Choi Soon-sil Scandal that's rocking the nation from bags of shredded documents (news in Korean).

Celine shreds her work by herself with the shredder

Since I have a hand-operated paper shredder at home, I decided to have a bit of fun by re-enacting this process with my daughter Celine. We call it the "JTBC play". After Celine created a "document" to shred, she put it into the paper shredder. I think she likes the feel of the paper being cut up by turning the handle.

Server upgraded to macOS Sierra

With major tasks at the workplace wrapped up, I decided that the National Foundation Day holiday would be a good time to upgrade the Mac mini server from El Capitan (OS X 10.11) to Sierra (OS X macOS 10.12). For a warm-up, I upgraded the MySQL Server installation from 5.6 to 5.7 before that, but I ran into some weird issues and took about an hour to resolve. After getting MySQL to work again, I made a full system backup and installed Sierra. With the new OS in place, I restored the server configuration and now you see that the website is back in action. iPhone 7 review will resume shortly.

The slow updating of Google's Mobile Usability Report

Pages with mobile usability issues as Google sees it, as of May 14, 2016

It's been more than a month since I revamped the site to be mobile friendly. Yet it takes quite a bit of time for Google to re-crawl all those pages and realize that they're have been changes. As you can see here, Google Mobile Usability Report still thinks roughly 15% of the indexed pages still aren't mobile friendly despite the fact that the template update affected the entire site at once. These pages would still show up in the search results without the "Mobile Friendly" tag and be ranked lower. I guess I'll have to wait a few more weeks.
