Minimum fan speed at MacBook Pro

If you have any experience with loudness of fans or high minimal fan speed with your MacBook Pro, this could be solution for your problems:

1) Uninstall Fan Control app (maybe you or some previous user has installed it on your system):


Uninstall Instructions
Please follow these instructions to uninstall FanControl permanently:
  1. Remove the following files and folders (both on your start disk):
        /Library/StartupItems/FanControlDaemon
        /Library/PreferencePanes/Fan Control.prefPane

     (You will be prompted for the Administrator's password when deleting these items.)
  2. Reboot
  3. Reset the System Management Controller (SMC). Please follow these links for instructions: PortablesMac MiniMac Pro
2) To repeat the last step of the first step - reset SMC. Before starting your MacBook Pro, hold left shift, control, option and power key at the same time for a few seconds and release them at the same time. Then turn your MacBook Pro on.

3) If you have installed smcFanControl, then reinstall it.

4) If the fans are still loud while CPU load is low, then you have to probably open the bottom case and clean the fans manually.

These instructions worked for me on my MacBook Pro (8.2 15" Early 2011 with OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.3) after cleaning my fans twice and few hours of surfing for the help.

First Hawaii, then Oregon

Why? Hawaii - the international conference on MR (ISMRM) happened to be in Honolulu in 2017. Oregon - to counterbalance volcanic islands with sunny beaches and volcanic mountain with snow.

Part One: No Glamping in Hawaiian Islands

Island One: Kauai



After comfy 24-hour economy flights with Eva and Fabian, and just as I started to watch Moana, we landed in Lihue (Kauai). I assembled with Pedro, we took a rental car and quickly found our room in cosy Kauai Palms Hotel. For lunch next day we met Andrea in Kapaa and together we headed to see Wailua Falls, not far from Lihue. We left Andrea in Kapaa later that day and for our next night we were going to camp at Koke'e State Park Campground (thanks Evka for help with fixing my tent!). The night was very cold, roosters were loud and views from Kalalau Lookout were astonishing! It was time to warm up and see some beach so we decided to get a nice cup of coffee and visit a beach with restricted access for rental cars - Barking Sands Beach in 

Yamaha S08 - sticky keys repair

My keyboard Yamaha S08 suffered from several "sticky keys" disease already a year, perhaps more. That saying, I am pretty bad piano player. However, I like to have my devices fully functional for any cases.
I have found a very helpful guide, but with no photos. I made some for better visualization of the repair.
First, I unfastened all screws from both sides:

Second, I unfastened all screws from a wooden base plate which were holding the part with electronics.


Then I unfastened the golden screws holding the whole keyboard to the wood. The keyboard was now accessible from both sides.

The last step is described in the following video. It was just removing the sticky keys and reinserting them without a metal spring coming inside. The end of the metal spring has been left outside of the key:


So far it works well!

Inspiring music in Casey Neistat's vlogs

After watching a few vlogs by Casey Neistat on Youtube, I couldn't help notice the well-chosen music in the background. Particularly music by one artist named Julian Avila. Here is his music: https://soundcloud.com/julian_avila
Inspired, I took several months old videos I shot on GoPro Hero 2 when I was biking to Kahlenberg in the rain. After a few hours and two whiskeys, this came from my computer:
