Windows 10 not detecting the wifi network

Recently, I changed the wifi channel of my router to channel "12" because I wanted to be on a different channel than the default channel used by many routers. I was hoping I'd get better speeds by being on a different channel used by my dear neighbors. My phone detected the wifi network on the new channel but Windows 10 did not. Turns out, we need to change the adapter settings to allow wifi receiver to detect wifi networks on a different channel.

This may not apply to all Windows 10 users but It did affect me and I found a solution.

Here is how I did it:
Press Win+E and enter Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections in the address bar.Right-click the wifi adapter and click Properties.Click the Advanced tab.Select Preferred Band under Property.Select the required band.Click OK.
The adapter will reset and you will see your dear-old wifi network. 
Note: Even if you have configured your router not to broadcast SSID, Windows should detect it as a network.

Unconditional Love?

I don't think the love between two people can ever be called unconditional love. The moment the love becomes exclusive to two people, the love becomes conditional. If your lover cuts your ear off, can you still love him/her? The person we love can change, for the bad or good but will we ever be able to sustain the same love throughout?

Unconditional love is always directed to all beings, without judgment, good and bad, towards people of different moralities, to the person who ran his/her car over your dog, etc. It sounds impossible, impractical and naive, and that's why unconditional love is rare. Only an enlightened person can love unconditionally, which is often reflected in the stories of great humans such as Lord Buddha and Jesus.

A Perspective of Sri Lankan Bus Conductors

You judged already! Didn't you? If you thought that this blog post is a negative, complaining rant about the cussed behaviour of Sri Lankan bus conductors, you will find me irritating (or wise) at the end of this post.

Sri Lankan bus conductors are often criticized for treating passengers as goods and not returning change, among many other 'bad' traits. Is it always true? Are we being judgy? Maybe we should put ourselves in the slippers of a bus conductor to step into the world of bus conducting.

For me, being a bus conductor in the over-utilized transport sector is worse than a nightmare. Imagine spending most of the day in often-moving-slow-due-to-traffic? Being a tropical country, we get more than enough sun which peaks at the peak hours which is also the busiest hours for the bus conductors.

Let's look at the job description of a bus conductor:
Loading passengers to the bus by calling out the destinationsConducting the passengers through the bus (as people often st…
