Add Me to have more neighbours from game – FarmVille2 beginning.
Every time, when you start a new game at Facebook, you need friends or fans to participate it and be your neighbours. Then, you and your neighbours will play smoothly and faster.
It is hard to get new or active neighbours to play FarmVille 2. I created a page for you. You can post on it and ask for help or get neighbour there.
It has a name called FarmVille 2 Neighbourhood.
You will like it and it is simple to do it.
It is always lacking friends when someone starts to play CastleVille. Even you have a lot of neighbours, you still need more active neighbours.
Active friends will accept your requests and visit your castle often. You will always need stuffs to complete tasks. You send the stuff request to your neighbours, and neighbours help each others.
Here is the list of tips which can let you have more neighbours in CastleVille in a short time.
My first project for Raspberry Pi is game emulator. Oh, no, it is the second. The first is to make a case for Raspberry Pi.
Let us look at the Raspberry Pi’s status when it working inside of the case.
The board is sitting inside of the box perfectly. The white lan cable connect from left. Usb keyboard and usb mouse connect from left. orange HDMI cable is from up. The mini-usb power cable from right.
I followed the instruction of Shea Silverman’s blog.
I tried the Namco Galaxians game when I first run it.
I read the PC Magazine sometimes. One term is coming often and often. It is Thunderbolt.
It is a new standard for I/O device of computer.
Thunderbolt (codenamed Light Peak) is a hardware interface that allows for the connection of external peripherals to a computer. It uses the same connector as Mini DisplayPort (MDP). It was released in its finished state on February 24, 2011.
Compared with other ports of PC, the speed of I/O is much more fast. See below.
USB 3.0 is a fast speed connection between PC and portable disk. But the Intel said Thunderbolt can provide double speed of USB 3.0. It is not enough. 10Gbps is just one way. Thunderbolt can do same speed at the both directions. So max total is 20Gbps.
What is UEFI, I mentioned it at What is GPT, but not clear. Here I would like to give more details about it.
The Unified Extensible Firmware Interface, UEFI, is a new firmware interface specification that is designed to replace the familiar BIOS interface.
When turn on the computer, UEFI’s firmware will run an inventory of the hardware installed on the system; after checking that everythinkg is functioning properly, it will launch the operation system and turn control of the PC hardware over to the software. UEFI supports a wider range of chip architectures, including 32-bit and 64-bit processors like the ARM chips, than does BIOS, which is limited to running on 16-bit processors.
The new spec works very well, and nearly all UEFI firmware images include support for older BIOS services, so it has no problem upgrading from a motherboard flashed with BIOS to one flashed with UEFI.
When I received the Raspberry Pi board, I thought I will make a case for it.
So, first I made a paper case here to have a little idea. Then I am looking for the box or case with similar size.
I went to Daiso, called as Toonie store, everything is two dollars.
I found paper clips with box. The box is perfect right. I bought it and gave all clips to my daughters. They need it for homework.
It is a box, need to be cut the hole or opening for ports of Rasperberry Pi.
To do this job, I need the tool for cutting.
After two days research and comparison, I decide to buy Dremel 3000 tool. Today, I went to Canadian Tire and paid $78.39 with Tax.
It is a set.
The blue small case is to store the accessories. There is a big gray box to hold all these staffs.
Before install Apache2, PHP5 and MySQL, install CentOS 6.3 server first.
Followed the steps to install these staff.
1) Installing MySQL 5
VirtualBox 4.1.22 is the latest maintenance release or VirtualBox 4.1.

VMM: fixed a potential host crash under a high guest memory pressure (seen with Windows 8 guests)
VMM: respect RAM preallocation while restoring saved state.
VMM: fixed handling of task gates if VT-x/AMD-V is disabled

I bought Sipura SPA-2002 VOIP phone adapter about six years ago.
When I clean up my folders of hardware documents, I saw this guide.
To save the space and for reference purpose, I scan it and you can download it here.
