Deactivate 'Who Visits Your Twitter Profile?' Straight Away!

Who Visits Your Twitter Profile

Over the last week or so I've started to notice a lot of Tweets appearing on my main Twitter timeline advertising a link that supposedly shows you or lets you know who has visited your profile. Sounds too good to be true?

Well as I've been a Twitter developer for nigh on a decade, I can confirm that yes it is too good to be true. It's a massive, and potentially dangerous, scam. There is no(!) way to find out who has visited your profile at all.

And if you've 'authorised' this 'app' (their website address... [read more]

dhIMG Twitter v1.8 Released

dhIMG Twitter

Thanks for all the messages from everyone that uses this program regarding how it was no longer working. I've updated it and tested it (had someone else test it too), it should now work. The reason for the previous versions not working was a security policy change on Twitter's side.

dhIMG Twitter

Note: I have tried my best to keep the framework required to run the program as low as possible, as to cater for those of you that're still on earlier Operating Systems, however this update requires the .NET Framework 4.6, which means if you're on... [read more]

[Day 59] Settled

Well this week has started off with my mood being somewhat different compared to the previous weeks. It has been up and down more times than a whore's drawers. Thankfully though, after calling the doctors surgery this morning, I was informed that my prescription was ready and available to pick up, so I shot out of bed and went straight to the doctors to pick it up. When I got it I noticed that it was for a month (usually, during this nightmare of transferring details and what-not, it's only been for a week, then the rigmarole repeats... [read more]

[Day 58] I Almost Broke

[Day 58] I Almost Broke

What a day. Not a good day. Not in the slightest.

I thought yesterdays blip in my mood would have gone, but today has just added more fuel to that.

I attended my midday appointment with the health person to answer a few questions regarding my general health, had my blood pressure taken and was breath analysed - the reading was 0mg (obviously because I have not drank for 58 days).

That whole appointment lasted barely 15 minutes. I had to pay £4.80 to get the bus to travel 6 miles for a 15 minute appointment. I... [read more]

Sobriety [Day 22 - Day 28]

Sobriety [Day 22 - Day 28]

Monday, glorious Monday. A cold one to wake up to too. Sadly the grass has not turned crisp and frosty white though. I always find that a beautiful sight to see when surrounding fields are just pure white - be it from frost or from snowfall - they always look picturesque.

I've been getting a bit bored recently with the current playlist on my mobile device (I can't walk down the town to and from my day programmes and/or meetings without some sort of music playing), so I spent a few moments rejigging what... [read more]

The Crispin-Buxley Phenomenon

The Crispin-Buxley Phenomenon

You may or may not have heard of the Crispin-Buxley Phenomenon and if you have not then you are probably wondering what it actually is.

In all honesty, I do not know what it is myself. Simple really. However you have probably come across this article after doing a Google search because you had been asked the question 'Are you familiar with the Crispin-Buxley phenomenon?' on the paid-survey website Prolific and was wondering what on Earth it actually was.

I have sat down and thought about what this could be and all I can think of... [read more]

Sobriety [Day 15 - Day 21]

Sobriety [Day 15 - Day 21]

Following on from my previous blog post on here, you are aware that I finished my detox programme at 9am on Monday 22nd October. I will continue to document what I am doing from there on, as there seems to be interest in what I am doing. So here we go.

After leaving rehab at 9am on Monday morning, we scooted back home where I was able to have a quick shave (as my shaver had been confiscated upon my arrival, so I wasn't about to shave during my fortnight stay) and also drop... [read more]

Rehab Detox Day 15

Well, the day cometh.

Woke up at 7am, had the morning meeting at 7:30am, followed by breakfast, then made sure everything was all packed up and forms were filled in. Had my medication for the morning, then sat around waiting.

I was sat in the living room area, then two of the others clocked a car on the drive, they looked out the window and one of them said "Ooo it's a nice piece of gash", I looked out the window and having clocked that it was The Mother, I exclaimed to this other that that... [read more]

Rehab Detox Day 14

Jeez, my last full day already! These two weeks have flown by far too quickly.

Breakfast was really nice, scrambled eggs on toast (coated in Marmite), then we got ready for Church. Church was fun again. Got back and had dinner, which was beef and rice-n-peas, cauliflower and roasties. A different mixture of things, but it worked and was absolutely lovely.

The sun was shining, so after a heavy lunch, we had a nice chill in the garden. Relaxed until about 6pm then went out for a long walk down the seafront.

Passed 7 'triggers' with no... [read more]

Rehab Detox Day 13

Saturday, it is the weekend so not much in the way of groups now. I woke up pretty much as the alarm went off this morning, so was bright-eyed and bushy-tailed at 7am. Had the morning meeting, a few fags and coffees and breakfast.

After breakfast we headed to the Centre for the first of two groups. The first consisted of individually picking out a random piece of laminated paper with a word on it from an envelope and then explain what it means to/for us, then we repeated this another two times and when... [read more]
