Oh GAWD, please don't buy this adapter
This is not the best Wii adapter. Actually, it's the worst adapter for the Wii that probably never got a quality testing done properly. I present you one of my worst purchases I did in 2017. When I plug this in on my Wii console and wanted to use my SNES and NES (スーパーファミコン & ファミリーコンピュータ) controllers on classic games, I notice a big lag (a period of time between pressing the button and movement) and felt that I had a defective unit.

Which of these stickers is the real one? Top one, I just type the IMEI number in an online Continue reading

I was afraid I will get weird phone calls and getting bombarded with spam email . My solution for the email was creating a new professional gmail account and get a free phone number from Continue reading

Android: Need JDK in a USB Drive

One thing I need is JDK in a portable format. Here at college, the school's admin made it impossible to install Java JDK. The solution is to install it in a usb be drive and I could use the JDK and any program that needs its. However, some programs needs the the path and the user needs to go to System Properties -->Environment Variables and change the Java JDK Path. To make it worse, admin (wisely, I may add) locks the path and the user can't chose or add regular JDK or 64 bit version. HERE Is my solution to bypass this problem: Download jdk portable and intall it in usb drive: However, the trick is to change the path of the JAVA_HOME @ environment Continue reading
