Another Internet Selfie Craze - Sellofie

The internet's awash with random crazes and I've got a feeling this (old-ish one) will become another big one... basically it's you taking a Selfie (a picture of yourself by yourself) but whilst you've wrapped your face in Sellotape (hence #Sellofie [Sello]tape+Sel[fie])

Simple idea, harmless and as you can see below, a bloody good laugh! I'm still struggling to stop laughing from these pictures. :D

Christmas Offends Muslims

Well the wonders of social media, here daily to help recirculate stuff that's been around since the dawn of time and make it seem like it's something brand new and exclusive.

Well, here's a prime example. I noticed a fair few people posting and "sharing" this newspaper headline, "Christmas Is Banned: It Offends Muslims" on Facebook earlier...

Christmas Is Banned: It Offends Muslims

I also had a flick through a few comments on it too (there were thousands, so couldn't have gone through every single one of them) and it's amazing that people are thinking this is a recent headline... [read more]

Are Pop Up Blockers Really Needed Anymore?

Are Pop Up Blockers Really Needed Anymore?

I remember the days when I first started using the internet and the worse thing to come across was websites that bombarded you with popups - not just adult based sites, but security ones or personal ones made on free services such as Homestead, Geoshities, Lycos, Bravenet, etc..

However during a conversation of the good oldé days with a friend of mine a few weeks ago, we decided to be brave and do an experiment by browsing a few "naughty" sites using Internet Explorer 6 (the best version they did, before Microsoft... [read more]

Bypass Stupid UK Internet Blocks

Bypass UK Internet Block

By now you'll notice if you're from the United Kingdom at least, many websites (mainly torrent sites) are blocked by your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and soon most adult sites will be blocked too (but at least with the adult block you'll be able to contact your ISP and ask for the block to be lifted), however what happens if you want to actually view torrent sites? Well you could use various proxy sites, but every now and then, they seem to fail or get overloaded. However there is one service that has been set... [read more]

PHP Drug

Earlier on today, I was comparing how instead of learning French or German when I was growing up, I decided to learn a web based language - PHP. Normally when I mention about PHP people usually say to me what is it?! And this always reminds me of a fake news story from many years ago of a case where someone didn't know it was a web programming language - and the story did fool a fair few people at the same time. (I own up, I believed it at first until I got near the bottom and noticed the... [read more]
