There's a handy reference at the Park Tool Co. website, a bike repair map; it's a diagram of a bike with all the parts labeled, and is very handy! At the moment, the diagram is up at parktool.com/blog/repair-help. (They've changed the URL in the past, so this link may break.)

A road bike has the following parts (source):

eWeLink could not detect new Sonoff switch

eWeLink could not detect new Sonoff switch

Spent a few hours troubleshoot the eWeLink could not add Sonoff switch issue.

  • Tried to move the switch near to WiFi router
  • Separate bands in router
  • Connect to different router
  • Change phone, between iPhone and Android phone

After a few hours, still could not detect Sonoff switch.

In the evening, the suddenly can detect, but could not download device info, got error 401. Then I think it was caused by me after reset password, then used the phone which performed password reset to try again. Finally the device was added successfully.

Then tried at night again, everything ok.

Possible cause

I think it was caused by eWeLink website issue, which could not register new device. And once issue happened, need to reset the device to let the eWeLink App detects again, and I didn't notice the message as well.

eweLink has made some changes last week. API needs updating

Strange result of verifying APE Audio File

Strange result of verifying APE Audio File

In Monkey’s Audio, there is a function called Verify, which should verify integrity of APE audio files.

But after I downloaded the latest version of Monkey's Audio (version 7.21), then I don't believe it can do any more.

I got a few files which are different than another set of same files. They come from same source, shoud be identical, but there are a few bytes different. Then I used Monkey's Audio to test all of them, they all past the verification.

There are some other issues too, the Monkey's Audio could not add directory, I tried many time, just nothing added. But I can add files.

Placing fingers for FPS gaming

Placing fingers for FPS gaming

Frames per second (FPS) gaming requires muscle memory, fast response is not only needs for screen, but also for player, there is no time to move eyes from screen to hands at all.

Keyboard

Place fingers correctly while gaming can take advantage, such as fast response, less mistake, less stress, etc. Following placement just a guide for some games, such as genshin impact, etc.

  • Middle finger on W and alternate it between S
  • Index finger on D
  • Ring finger on A
  • Pinky finger on shift alternating to Ctrl when needing to crouch
  • Thumb finger over space alternating to C/X/Z for the commands

If you put keyboard flat, you may able to use the palm near to your pinky finger to hit control. In this case, you need to use Middle/Index/Ring to hit C/X/Z, anyway, thumb is not easy to reach them as well.

Controller

Most of buttons and sticks are very obvious, except bumpers and triggers.

  • Index finger on bumper
  • Middle finger on trigger
