No “www” – htaccess redirect

I go just long enough between websites that I’m always forgetting this little number. Putting it here so I can just grab it next time.

Podsift

After a few podcast databases disappeared and after I really could have done with one I set upon the task of creating one of my own.

Yogs DB

How do I remove ALL apps from Facebook in one go?

Ok this has been bugging me. I recently got a notification from Facebook saying I had been blocked from creating Open Graph things for a day. Honestly couldn’t think of any reason as to why. As for you folks out there that just want to get to the part where I tell you how to remove all apps from Facebook in one go just jump down underneath the images it’s there under its own heading. I do apologise for waffling it’s just that without typing a bunch of stuff Google doesn’t care about your content so you never get listed anywhere on its search engine. Hence this story. Such is life.

The source code that got Apollo 11 to the moon

Blast off! Oh that’s cheesy. If you’re into your code and you’re into your space you may be interested in hearing that the source code for the Apollo 11 guidance computer has been put up on GitHub: Apollo 11 Guidance Computer source code. Of course the internet is having its way with it right now, filing issues such as adding a pull request that provides an extension pack for picking up Matt Damon{.

My screen keeps going black whenever a video plays and its really annoying

Like most of the posts on this site something’s been bugging me for almost years at this point (ok, a year.. probably less) and it’s finally pushed me over the edge to try to fix it. – My screen keeps going black, seemingly randomly whenever it decides it wants a breather. Let me preface I’ve got an NVIDIA GPU of some sort for the gaming and whatnot. It uses the NVIDIA GeForce control panel to sort its inner workings. If you’ve not got that you might be able to play along here but also you might be out of luck. Let me know in the comments if this helps either way.

Thud

What is a thud?

It’s a loud sudden noise, hyuk hyuk.

If you ever break your hip, don’t do it before Christmas

Oh man. Whoo-boy. I have tripped over.

No I don’t mean the event that caused the actual hip break, I have a full on post about what happened there in the works but it’s a wordy boring one.

Christmas with a broken hip. Not a good idea! Whatever happened to the days when people would give you shower gels, deodorants and socks? This year it was all chocolate! No word of a lie I wouldn’t be surprised if the amount of chocolate in the house right now weighs more than me!
