Delicious alternatives to creamer for your morning Coffee

In my search to drink the tastiest possible coffee, I have left no stone unturned.  I have tried non dairy creamers as well as almond milk, and both have their weaknesses.  Almond milk tends to clump up, and does not taste very good with coffee.  Many of the non dairy creamers either taste extremely artificial, or are extremely unhealthy.   Some even have dairy ingredients while claiming to be non dairy which should be some kind of a warning sign.

What are lactose intolerant people supposed to do?  Try the So Delicious unsweetened vanilla Coconut milk.  In my experience, I found that it adds a nice and subtle flavor to your coffee without interfering or overpowering its native taste.

In terms of ingredients, the worst offender is Carrageenan, so keep this away from infants (which should be common sense with most non dairy alternatives) as they may not be able to properly digest it.   According to Fooducate, this product rates a B+, which is decent for occasional consumption.  It also has no sugar, is low in calories, and a decent amount of vitamins and nutrients.

For those of you who don't mind dairy or who do not suffer from any degree of lactose intolerance, my suggestion is the excellent Skim Plus Half and Half.

It's even less processed than almond or coconut milk, tasty, and is low on sugar and calories.  Fooducate rates it a "B" and it also works great in coffee in a pinch.

Retron 5 hacked to launch RetroArch and play ROMS off your SD card

It appears that a someone going by the screenname of RetroN Labo on Youtube has successfully hacked the Retron 5 console to run the full version of  Retroarch.  In the video shown, various emulators that are not part of the original firmware are playable including the PC Engine, Playstation One, Nintendo DS, and Wonderswan.  As the stock firmware from the Retron 5 is programmed to load games from an original cartridge when it is inserted, this hack appears to run ROM and ISO files, most likely from the SD card slot built into the back of the console.

In most of instances shown in the video, emulation appeared to run smooth, and the games previewed looked playable. Currently, Hyperkin (Retron 5 manufacturer) is in hot water with Retroarch's creators due to using their emulator cores without permission.  After being discovered, Hyperkin has shared their code, and claims that they have removed any infringing code from their console.  The Retroarch group feels differently.  Details o…

Your Wii's second life as an emulation and media center powerhouse

Lifesperience is now Raycommend, which can be found here:Ray Commend

While the Wii was initially a very popular console for Nintendo, for most people, it has gone unused for years gathering dust.  More powerful consoles and devices have taken its place and even Nintendo themselves have practically abandoned it with many of their own channels going offline over the last year.  Chances are that by this point, your Wii is long out of its warranty period.  If you're willing to take about an hour of your time, you can turn your old Wii into a great emulation station and decent media center for the kids.

The things that you will need to get the most out of your old Wii console are:

An SD card (up to 32gb)An internet connection The first thing that you will need to do is softmod your console which will allow it to run unsigned software outside of Nintendo's ecosystem.  Yes!  One of the great things about the Wii (for our purposes) is that you don't need to buy an additional hardwa…
