[iPhone] TVCatchup No Adverts

TVCatchup No Adverts

TV Catchup, like a load of apps these days is getting more pants by the minute - mainly because "broadcasters" don't want them streaming their channels ... welcome to the digital age people! Welcome.

Anyways, if you're like me and prefer to watch your non-commercial stuff (i.e; BBC) on the BBC iPlayer then you don't get bugged by adverts, however using TV Catchup to watch already commercialised broadcasts requires you to sit and watch yet another boring advert (this is obviously to help fund TV catchup), well if you don't wish to see this advert at...

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

How Do Americans Watch TV?


Every few nights I sit and watch a few feeds from America and I'm still surprised at how annoying it is trying to watch a programme over there.

Pretty much anything and everything is sponsored. When they show the weather forecast, it's sponsored, when a programme finishes, its closed-captions (subtitles) are also sponsored. Also most of these sponsored messages and normal commercials are constantly cut-short. If that happened here in the UK, advertisers would go mental!

Talking of commercials, for the BBC channels, we don't get mid-show commercials, but other channels either have one after 5 minutes, then 25... [read more]

Maximum Execution Time in Phirehose

Maximum Execution Time

I was working on some PHP stuff last night and decided to use the Phirehose library and when running one of the scripts, I kept getting this error:

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in C:\php\libs\phirehose\Phirehose.php on line 587

Now it obviously doesn't take a genius to understand the meaning of the error, for those that don't understand, basically in the settings of my PHP setup I have told it that if any script takes more than 30 seconds to complete, then time out... and that's basically what's happened here. So how do I... [read more]
