I installed an Epson TM-T88VI printer for Kounta printing to work on Chrome. Kounta on Chrome will also not work on a normal network printer like Brother or Kyocera. Kounta only supports intelligent Epson printer if you want to use Kounta on a computer with Chrome. If you have an iPad, then it may have a different requirement.

I followed the instruction as per this video https://support.kounta.com/hc/en-us/articles/203236310-Setup-an-Epson-Intelligent-printer-with-Kounta, I even added the --allow-running-insecure-content parameter on Chrome shortcut, but test print keeps failing.

To fix this issue, login to Epson web configuration page (https://ip-of-the-printer/webconfig-i/), if it ask for a username and password, type epson on both.

One of my friend's iPad was running out of space, there were not much pictures and music. I was suspecting a movie that's causing the storage/space issue, but I couldn't find any big file to delete, I've been to TV, Music, iTunes purchased but it's not adding up the total storage.

I downloaded the free trial of AnyTrans by iMobie - https://www.imobie.com/anytrans/

On previous Stripe Dashboard, you can view the API, either the test and live publishable and secret key on one page.

On the current Dashboard, I got confused why I couldn't see the live API key.

The reason why was because I keep clicking the "View test data" toggle which shows the Test API key everytime I clicked the API menu. I need to click teh "View test data" as I was checking the Events and Logs on the website I was testing.

I need a module to accept Stripe payment on the Joomla website I am working on, it also needs a membership subscription and to be able to be added as MailChimp subscriber. My option was to buy a module called Membership Pro by OsSolutions but I thought of giving a try.

What you need for this to work on your current Joomla are the following:

  • Stripe account (free subscription)
  • SSL certificate installed on your website as Stripe requires it (you can get for free depending on your hosting server if it supports it via Let's Encrypt)
  • MailChimp account (free subscription)
  • Zapier account (free subscription)
  • DirectPHP plugin for Joomla (free)


  1. Sign-up for Stripe account.
  2. Add your bank account.
  3. Get your Test API key by logging into your dashboard. Toggle on View test data then click on API menu. Change your API key to the live one once you're ready to go live. Add a comment

To do an inplace upgrade from Windows 10 Home to Professional edition, go to Settings -> System -> About then click the link Change product key or upgrade your edition of Windows.

Then click on Go to Store link.

Below is a screenshot from a Windows 10 Home laptop, price shows is $149, I am assuming it includes GST.


You can buy a retail version to use for inplace upgrade of Windows 10 Home to Professional. Unless, you buy a Windows 10 Professional OEM licence which is like $249.

Doing an inplace upgrade will save you around $100.
