This was eventually very easy, although it took me ages to find out since every article anywhere was hopelessly outdated. I presume you know the MTU and RWIN values you want to set. If not, this is a good tool to test your packet drop vs. success rate – Broadband ReportsRead More
Update: Spryfox were kind enough to contact me and let me know that they have reduced the price of Triple Town to $3.99. Whilst this is fairer and a great improvement, there are those of you who may still not want to pay at all. For you, this post still applies, and still works.
It really annoys me that they want $7 for unlimited turns in this game. It is addictive, but not worthy of $7. So here is how I’ve managed to keep playing it for free.Read More
What is SOPA?
SOPA stands for ‘Stop Online Piracy Act’. A piece of proposed legislation that the United States government is considering to make into Law. If it passes the Internet will not will loose a great deal of it’s freedom. A view voiced by many people. Its supposed aim is to help intellectual property holders (film and music companies mostly) have a bigger voice in stopping ‘Illegal’ websites that distribute their content. The companies can accuse websites of infringing their content, and the government can shut down a website for just this accusation. It is sentence before trial. It’s the start of Internet censorship, and governments making attempts to get a latch into controlling it.Read More
Just a quick one… A mini-rant.
Please don’t get terminology confused. I hate it very much.
ChromeOS from Google is NOT an Operating System. Take my word for it.
Instead, ChromeOS is nothing more than a GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE (GUI) for a LINUX BACKEND. Essentially no different from GNOME, KDE, or even XFCE in many ways (for Linux). Same for Explorer on Windows.
Linux is the Operating System. Chrome is the FRONTEND.
Whilst I love the idea of ChromeOS and support it all the way right now. I am hoping I don’t have to keep correcting people. I am a grammar Nazi as it is, I don’t want to become a terminology Nazi too.
Think how much stuff relies on GPS today. Here is a short list and I am sure you can think of others:
Aircraft, personal navigation, deliveries, emergency services, hobbyists.
Think how many BILLIONS of people use GPS everyday, very VERY dependantly.Read More
Just a little rant about Microsoft…
Mr Peter and I have been raging about their ‘Cloud’ advertisments on the telly-box recently for 3 reasons. Firstly, the adverts are crap, secondly, they shouldn’t be allowed to reserve the word ‘Cloud’ like that, thirdly, some of the ideas they have for ‘Cloud’ are nonsense.Read More
As I write this, I am on a train bound for London. In the booth-ette one-forward-one-right of me is a Scottish businessman with his (I assume) British colleague who has a Northen accent. I presume they are both from two related companies up North down here for a business venture, since they are in suits and it is Saturday.Read More
The MSN messaging network is barely ever used anymore, that’s just an written fact.
Most people only sign on because their laptop is set to do it automatically, and they never talk to anyone unless they are talked to by someone else first. Whom they themselves are bored stupid and can think of literally nothing else to do.Read More
The quoted part of the title is somewhat of a motto amongst geeks across the Internet. Usually when somebody asks a noob question somewhere, some Guru will pipe up with that statement, and that’s the problem solved.Read More
