Microsoft Windows 10

It's July 29th 2015. And after all the build-up, the hype, the news stories flooding around technology websites, the preview copies, dev copies, insiders copies, bug reports, fixes and all that. The day has finally come. Windows 10 is to finally be released!

Will I be upgrading straight away when it's released?

NO

Why not?

Simple reason. NEVER trust something as soon as it's just been released.

Take a look at the (public) release of iOS8, for example, they had testers and what-not and guess what happened once it was released? Bugs galore and fuck-ups were constantly happening and they had... []

dhIMG TwitterBarely a few weeks have passed and once again Twitter has been messing around with a few things, which after being prompted by a couple of people who encountered an error, I have looked into it and released a fix. The bug didn't allow you to download any more than 20 images.

You should find now that, if chosen, then more than 20 images will download. I've just gave it a test on my account (selecting 60) and it worked fine.

As with previous releases, the download link will stay the same.

Changes in v1.5

One minute's silence on Friday

Due to the recent events in Tunisia, our Prime Minister David Cameron has annouced that on Friday (3rd July) the country (UK) will fall silent for one minute to remember the victims of the Tunisian beach attack that happened on Friday 26th July.

Now whenever there's some sort of silence, I expect people to do it - all in all it's just a few minutes throughout the year that's taken by it. And by "doing the silence", I do actually mean DO THE SILENCE. No talking. No phone calling (unless obviously it's to the emergency... []

iOS 8.3

I've finally come into the modern world and upgraded from iOS 7.1.1 (of which I had jailbroke) and I am now running on iOS 8.3. So why the long wait?

Well, I've been a right sucker for having stuff jailbroken as I am from a very open and relaxed enviroment (Android) and don't like being tied to certain things (i.e; App *must* be downloaded via the App Store ONLY, audio recordings from a website cannot be natively saved to the device). I've always enjoyed having the freedom to do other things (I've even gone to the extent of... []

There's still a huge amount of confusion, not just with foreigners, but also with the citizens of this great land regarding what certain places are called. The main reason I decided to bring this up is because where the house is that I currently live in is supposedly in about 4/5 different named areas... and it causes major confusion when I try explaining it. Anyway, this isn't about me, it's about this wonderful nation/country/whatever... do we call it Britain? Great Britain? United Kingdom or the British Isles?

To save the confusion, I believe this quick Geography 101 I've... []

The world is littered with morons - and sadly some of them morons are here in the UK. I'm actually surprised these morons know how to file a complaint, which is the reason for posting this. Below are complaints that have been received by Thomas Cook from various disgruntled customers.

Prepare for stupid and also to facepalm.

 

1) "On my holiday to Goa in India, I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don't like spicy food."

 

2) "They should not allow topless sunbathing on the beach. It was very distracting for... []

1,000th Blog Post

1,000 ... yes, 1,000th blog post.

Wow.

Well, for the past couple of years I've been wanting to hit this mark at the end of the year (like as a New Years Eve post), but in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014, I had failed. Now it's the 1st of May, I can't exactly keep the site quiet for another 7 months, so today will have to do.

As it's my 1,000th post, I suppose I should do that whole "let's take a trip down memory lane" thing... so, here we go...

Way back in September 2005 - on the... []

Wurstify

I think I have came across quite possibly the best extension (which the exception of uBlock Origin) for Google Chrome, Wurstify.

The extension is totally free and installs very quickly on to Google Chrome and, as you may have guessed from the extensions name (If you remember Conchita Wurst) it shoves a beard on to any picture it can whilst you browse the internet.

To show it in action, I did a nice simple Google Image search for "female politicians" and the results are like so:

Wurstify

I activated the extension and now, BEARDS!

Wurstify

I personally cannot stop laughing...... []
