How to spot fake Jordan 4 white cements

First of all, I am not knocking Knock offs. I think these look good and the quality isn’t bad, and authentics will run you over 2oo retail. Spotting a fake is not too hard, but there may be more than one line of fakes available, so here’s some tips:

1. tag on the back of is one tone grey, the authenics are cement speckled. Back side of this tag is glossy on the bootleg and matte on the real.

2. the inside of the tongue of a real is black, fakes are white or grey.

3. From side view the soles on a real shoe is grey black grey, on the fakes they are white black white.

These are easy to spot differences, theres lots of less obvious ones, google it. and if you see a “Nike Air” instead of a Jumpman you got yourself a99 release!

Repairing SR-250 Remote


Of course you want to fix this remote.. you spent a lot on it and now its not working.. I hate to be that guy, but just chalk up a loss and either switch to IOS or android versions (slower because they use your network instead of the zig-bee network the remote uses)  you can get an old ipod touch or android tablet much cheaper than another sr-250..


Ok so you’re really cheap and still here.. ok here is my proof that your are on a fools errand attempting to repair this remote..


there.. you happy??  single board, nothing to look at, clean or degunk.. all you got is wasted time and a paper weight that was once over 200 bucks of electronics.


Actifry Chicken Karaage


I Love fried Chicken and I love to fool myself into thinking the actify isn’t killing me by making me experiment with fried chicken.. but here goes.

Nothing is better than real fried chicken, not marriage, kids, accomplishments, religion, nothing..

Actifry cant be as good as deep fried but its still pretty good..

I used wings for this recipe but traditional cut pieces of chicken will work similarly.

1 tablespoon ginger – fresh grated
1 clove garlic grated
2 tablespoons soy sauce use tamari to make it gluten-free
1 tablespoon sake
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1/3 cup potato starch

Mix ingredients except potato starch and marinate chicken for 30 mins to an hour.

dust wings in potato starch.

transfer chicken to actifry with a half spoon of oil (if you left skin on, plenty of oil will come off your chicken)

12 minutes or when juices run clear.



Danger 5



I am a naturalized Australian, I know theres lots of things Aussies do wrong, race relations, reversing carbon taxes, treatment of aboriginals, but all can be forgiven is you see how right we got Danger 5.

Danger 5 is a live action tv show that is a “piss take” on old tv shows, foreign action shows and the like.. if Adam West’s Batman, italian Spiderman and Archer had a baby, Danger 5 would be born..

Im a total non-command-line kinda guy, but when I had to look for a lightweight OS for some really old computers I found Lubuntu to be awesome, plus the name is two things I like Ubuntu and Lube.

My laptop is an old pentium 3 or 4 and so far lubuntu has handled all the online streaming, playing movies and browsing that I need (mind you the browsing is not snap-fast, but its an usable) the OS is nice and really responsive, the software manager has everything you need, its pretty ubuntu-y in most aspects.


didn’t have to get any drivers, everything works on my old sony laptop like magic!


bandwithd on openwrt

Screen Shot 2013-12-03 at 11.26.46 PM


Roommates, guests, children, neighbours, tenants, spouses, parents, employees- they all have one thing in common. THEY CAN’T BE TRUSTED. my ISP has been shitting lately cause our bandwidth is outta control. numbers are important, bandwidthd to the rescue, with bandwidthd you can see who is hogging all the precious bandwidth. then you can find the mac address  of said hog and block the IP and when they come crying to you cause they cannot seem to connect you can say .





you can even let it run so you can monitor the day, week, month and yearly use.  so, do build your case before you send any nasty texts when really you downloaded a 40gig ps4 game during peak hours.

TP-Link TL-WDR4300 V1.4 with OpenWrt and Bandwidthd


We share wifi with some riff raff. They mean well but everyone these days is online all the goddam time and its driving our data through the roof. I made threats and had talks to everyone, but me likee the control. So I spoke to a higher nerd and he said openwrt can do this and go get the TL-WDR4300.

So I did and I LOVE it. Router is amazing OpenWrt has loads of features and Bandwidthd is performing well and hasn’t seemed to slow down the routing.
I was too stupid to figure out which firmware went on 1.4 it wanted a specific build off the trunk, ok I don’t know what Im talking about. Said nerd prepared the firmware for me.

Heres the Details: (for TP-Link TL-WDR4300 V1.4)

OpenWrt Barrier Breaker r38862 / LuCI Trunk (svn-r9934)

I think it includes bandwidthd,

Here it is.


Been rock solid ever since.

Stuff you didn’t know about the Terracotta Warriors


Recently wanted to find out more about the Terracotta Warriors and found some stuf that was interesting (to me)

  1. Warriors were buried around 210 BC.
  2. There are over 8000 Warriors as well as horses, chariots, etc
  3. The Emperor was only 13 when he started the project
  4. Soldiers were armed with real, sharpened weapons that were used by the soldier that the warrior represents.
  5. Those weapons would later be taken by enemies to overthrow the next emperor.
  6. Weapons recovered indicated that ancient china was blast forging weapons hundred of years before the west.
  7. Historians claim that each warrior is unique, but there are only 6 faces, historians didn’t want to come off looking racist.


Get [partially] reimbursed for your drain cleaning from the city of Vancouver

If you ever have waste water in your house backup, you’ve probably had to call roto rooter, milani etc. they charged you 400 to 600 depending on how bad the stoppage is.

speak to the plumber’s who doing the work, if theres any blockages on the citys side (ANY, does not have to be the main blockage) get the city to come and clean the drain again, make sure you get the paperwork from the city cause it has the case ID #.

Write this letter to this address:

453 West 12th
Vancouver BC

case id

on this date sewer services confirmed that robmelms on city side and enrolled this address for annual preventative cleaning.

On (Date), (Plumbing Company) were called to my house to unblock a sewer backup, After the blockage was cleared, the plumber used a camera to show where the blockages were. They found blockages on the city side as well as my side. I called the city and Sewer Services came by, confirmed the blockages were present and proceeded to use the auger machine to cut the roots that had caused the blockage.
