About healthncode

I like learning and applying technology to help improve life and solve issues in the business realm. By using existing and customized software, hardware, and process changes as wonderful improvement tools. I'm always amazed at how the advancements over the years help make tasks simpler and have a more expansive impact on humanity. I support the concept of wellbeing. Various forms of daily physical activity help in this manner too - solo or in small groups for myself. Keep in mind wellbeing, appreciation, and growth are top items to target, as the success overflows in other areas of your life.

Embrace AND! in your way of living.

A good acronym might be..  Abundant  natural  decisions

Activity N___ 🙂  determination.
But I was mainly saying, try to do a little bit of both things you enjoy.

When faced with two options, pick the better one.. For you

In a discussion with my own life coach, we came to a talk about two opposing choices, and he said something that’s clear as day in retrospect..

When faced with two options, pick the better one.. For you

We all have choices to make in life, why not pick better one? Or there’s the route to take from the Stephen Covey series, The Third Alternative.. Maybe a blend of both ideas, or something completely different and even better fitting for you, right now at this time in your life’s path.

It gets worse before it gets better

Can be true for a lot of things, yet more so with learning, or any kind of personal development, such as health (e.g. dietary changes or fasting), and fitness changes. 

We gotta keep up hope and push through a bit (within current limits), while remaining injury free. And it’s ok to take a break if the body or mind is asking for it. 

Myself these days, I am needing ample downtime, alone time, and bed rest for the healing of my chronic fatigue syndrome.

I have limitations more than normal for social interactions and activity. So I apologize in advance if we cross paths and I happen to appear distant or short with anyone. It’s in the interest of my own health and well-being.

Potential future Android feature – “Predictive copy paste”

This was mentioned on xda-dev. If it rolls out to all Android users, that will be an even nicer experience for the future.


For now, I’m definitely enjoying Nougat’s new features on an HTC10, my current smartphone.

Some of my favs from 7.0 Nougat:

  • Even better battery life
  • Collapsed notifications
  • Dual window display at times for any Nougat supported phone model out there.



Slow charging phone or battery problems?

Reminder that QuickCharge 2.0 and 3.0 is out there for most phones, and definitely something you want to seek when remedying slower charging concerns. Or another option is to buy an external battery bank of at least 10,000mAh capacity, and keep in mind how it best fits in your pocket/purse/backpack. Note that the link for power banks is units that wouldn’t be for QC3 though! You’ll have to find your own QC3 banks.  Ok fine.. here’s one with 4.5 Amazon stars that I pulled up quick 😉

Qualcomm QuickCharge 3.0 and even the “outdated” 2.0 type can really help alleviate your tech device’s charging woes.  Beyond that, it may also be a failing battery, and for phones without a removal battery, that does mean getting a new device 😦 But bite the bullet, right?

You can simply google to see if your phone has this feature, but how do you tell if your charge does? Well, to make it simple for folks, look at the text imprinted on the charger itself and try to use one of the ones you own that has the highest amp rating in it.  Try to shoot for something with a 2Amp or higher value imprinted on the charger’s body.  A 3-5Amp charger+ is ideal. That way you’re either getting QC2 or 3 (IF you device supports it).

Update: QuickCharge 4 coming in first half of 2017 🙂

Have a great holiday season and New Year’s, everyone.
