mi fit band doesn't pair error 96013 cant create a mi account

Just bought a Xaomi Mi fit band, and tried to set it up using my smartphone and the play store.

It didnt work, and told me that I couldnt create an account error 96013.

Easy solution is to go to  on a PC of laptop

and sign up for an account there.

You should then be able to log in on the smartphone & pair it


Good luck!

The lie that is Las Vegas and Conservatism

Here I am, sitting in room 20071, on the 20th floor of Treasure Island hotel, in the middle of the strip in Las Vegas. It`s 4 am Vegas time, and I`m wide awake. Being here has perhaps partially answered a question I have long been at odds with. Why do working class people vote Tory. I think it maybe the same reason that some people come to Vegas. I'm sure many gamblers have a deep seated belief that they are special, and more lucky/deserving than the next guy, and will therefore win more money, and working class Tory voters will do better out of right wing golitical changes, than him. The stark reality that they are not is the reason that big business wins in both cases.

People genuinely believe that they will end up better off in both scenarios, and ignore the fact that not everyone can 'win'. Big businesses reap the profits.

SOPA Emergency IP list:

SOPA Emergency IP list:         

So if these ass-fucks in DC decide to ruin the internet, here’s how to access your favorite sites in the event of a DNS takedown

        # News

        # Social media

        # Torrent sites

        # Social networking

        # Live Streaming Content

        # Television

        # Shopping

        # File Sharing

Here’s a tip for the do-it-yourself crowd: 
Go to your computer’s Start menu, and either 
go to “run” or just search for “cmd.” Open it up, 
and type in “ping [website address],” 

Once you have the IP for a website, all you really need 
to do is enter it like you would a normal URL and hit enter/press go. 
Typing in “” should bring you to 
the front page of AO3, for example, just as typing “” 
should bring you straight to your Tumblr dashboard. Since we’re obviously 
bracing for the worst case scenario which would involve you not being able to 
access the internet regularly, you should, save this list.

The Ghan

kindling the flames

I followed my own advice to Nick, and added a Kindle to my Amazon wishlist. Lo and behold, a beaut of a Kindle Wireless Reader 3G Wifi Graphite turned up today, thanks to my lovely missus & family

It's even better than i thought, and now it's linked to Kim's account, I can read all her books, too.
