Niagara Falls wallpaper

Niagara Falls

Last weekend, I went to cherry farm picking with family and we went to Niagara Falls afterward, I took this photo and I really like it, save it as wallpaper as you like. Enjoys.

  • I’m currently viewing two Dell 2408WFP monitors in front of me, these monitors are wall mounted and they are going to kill my sight.
  • This is what I used to wall-mounted these monitors. Each individual wall-mount is for each monitor
  • With a little of spare time I managed to organize my cables by sticking them onto the wall and whooolaaa….here
  • Somebody has given me a great idea that I should wall-mount my Mac Mini behind the monitors. So I did it. Look at the photo below, that’s how it’s mounted.

Magnet Tool Hanger

Magnet Hanger

I have some rare earth (neodymium) magnets laying around the house. I decided to put them in use as a tool hanger, using a hot glue gun and glued the magnets onto the bookshelf. Whooolaaa… Pretty cool stuff…

Little cool setup for a Mac Mini

Wow, it’s been a long time I haven’t done anything here. Recently I’ve got a Mac Mini and I’ve found this thing run a little hot for my concern. iStat Pro read the CPU temp around 50℃ with 1500rpm fan speed. People is saying this is normal temp for this kind of Mac Mini. Well, for me it’s not a good temperature in the long run. I had a 120mm case fan laying around, so I decided to do little mod and soldering the fan with a USB cable and connected to the back of the Mini. I could see some temp cool down a bit… It’s kinda fun huh?

USB (wireless) headset and speakers

Have you ever tried to play sound in both of your USB headset and speakers? You will have a hard time to figure out how to do it. The problem is that most of the time windows audio driver won’t let you do that. You either can set your speakers or USB headset  as your default audio device one at the time but not both simultaneously. Here, I will tell you the solution how to make your USB (wireless) headset and speakers to produce sound at the same time. This solution uses a software called Virtual Audio Cable which is not free but you can still download the trial software. With a little luck you can find full version on rapidshare.

Here’s a snapshot of my devices setup with the use of Virtual Audio Cable software to produce sound on both of my USB wireless headset and normal speakers at the same time. OS is Windows 7 x64 RC as you can see watermark at the bottom right corner.


My Flashlight Collection

Flashlight Collection

Today, my new flashlight NiteCore EZ AA just arrived to my door. I couldn’t wait to “show off” a little bit my flashlight collection. They are:

  • Fenix LD01
  • NiteCore EZ AA
  • Fenix P3D
  • Fenix TK11 R2

In this collection, I think I like the P3D is the brightest torch and the most EDC torch is LD01. I think I’m a flashaholic at the moment but it can’t stop me yet.

DIY Paracord Lanyard

Paracord Lanyard

Parachute cord (paracord) is one of my favorite cord to play with when I was little kid, although at that time I only could tie a round sinnet. I got into Stormdrane’s Blogs and I was impressed with his tying. So I went out and bought about 150 feet 550 type 3 paracord yesterday at Beavers Army Surplus local store. I couldn’t wait to learn some of these new knots and braids, I learned diamond knot and a solomon bar as my entry level.
