在NZ要拿到Full licence駕照要至少為期一年的時間，非常嚴謹，大大的降低馬路三寶的數量。考過Theory test（35題問答題至少對32題）時拿Learner licence，持有半年後才能再報考Restricted licence practical test (RLPT)。考過之後拿Restricted licence，持有半年之後才能再報考Practical test轉成Full licence（如果有參與課程，Restricted licence與Full licence practical test (FLPT) 之間的時間可以縮短到3個月）。三種考試跟三張駕照的金額都不大一樣。以下的表格中，class 1是汽車，class 6是機車。
|Application fee||Test fee||Total|
|Learner licence (class 1 or 6)||$48.20||$45.70||$93.90|
|Restricted licence (class 1 or 6)||$48.20||$86.60||$134.80|
|Full licence (class 1 or 6)||$49.60||$59.90||$109.50|
上週收到了Thomson 27.2mm x 250mm的坐桿以及star nut（在台灣俗稱梅花）之後，趁這個週末將單車走線、調整變速、碟煞。不過因為還缺少一個1cm的前叉墊片，現在車子還是不能上路。
Last week I received the Thomson 27.2mm x 250mm seatpost and star nut. I installed both of them as well as adjusted brake/shift during this weekend. It was almost done, however, I still cannot ride this bike, because I am waiting for the last missing piece: 1cm fork spacer.
Because I have serious back pain, this touring bike has the different setting from my previous road bike. There is almost no handlebar drop. But my Fuso steel road bike has 5cm handlebar drop just like my previous road bike (So I rarely ride it…). The 650B wheelset with the small frame has better ratio than the 700c one.
經過了漫長的九個月等待，終於拿到了我的客製化鈦合金旅行車車架。自從2014年去義大利騎單車旅行之後，我就越來越確定自己不會再參與比賽。我想要的是一台能陪我上山下海到處流浪的耐操旅行車，這樣的念頭催生了訂做鈦合金碟煞旅行車的目標。期間曾經survey過Independent Fabrication, Firefly, Hampsten, kualis，但是這些廠商訂做鈦合金旅行車架並不便宜，不包含S&S coupler就要US$3500起跳。這樣的價格我實在是花不下去，且還有其他事情要忙，因此訂做車架的事情也就一直擱著。
After the whole 9-month long waiting, I finally received my customised titanium touring bike frameset. Since I went toruing-cycling in Northern Italy with Bottle in 2014, I am very sure I won’t attend cycling race in the future anymore. I want a reliable and portable touring bike which can be with me around the world. Because of this idea, I want to customise my own titanium touring bike. I’ve surveyed some handmade bike factories e.g: Independent Fabrication, Firefly, Hampsten, and kualis. However, the customised titanium bikes made by these factories are really prohibitive. The price is usually up from USD$3,500, and it’s not including S&S coupler. I cannot afford this price, and meanwhile I was busy on other things, so this idea was pending.
SSL plays an important role in website, because in the last year Google announced that they will be using HTTPS and SSL as a ranking signal in their search results. This means that using HTTPS and SSL will help improve your site’s SEO.
Using an SSL certificate for your WordPress site means that your data, as well as your users’ data, remains safe from prying eyes. Since WordPress is a particularly large target for hackers due to its popularity and transparency, it’s important to take all the appropriate steps toward securing your site.
If you host a wordpress website by yourself, you may need to install SSL certificate on your website. I found a simple way to install SSL certificate through commands and the most important thing is this SSL certificate is free. Oh yes, you need to have the basic knowledge of SSH, Linux and Bash.
