Microwave Food: The Week Experiment

A week or so back I did some recording with the help of Wrights Productions and a comment came up that if the owner was left to his own devices he will live purely of take away and microwave food. Now the reason for this is simply because he is very lazy and would prefer not to cook (if he can) but it got me thinking – what would it be like to actually live only eating microwave food.

Now really I should do this for a month but seeing I am lazy and prefer cooking a good meal, I am doing this for only a week and below are the results. This article will update daily. Should note I may pull this earlier if I decide for health reasons it is not wise to carry on. Should also note if you want to read more about possible bad tasting food, do go over to my food review blog at Is it Nice?.

Farewell Co.CC?

Update 5/03/2013 ~ I am noticing a lot of people are finding this website via Googling if Co.CC is going to return. Sadly I doubt it is going to come back at all.

For those with better memory than a gold-fish on crack, a year or so back I wrote an article about Co.cc and how you can use them with email and I also did a Co.cc referral review but it seems as of today they might have pulled the plug.

For those that may not know, Co.CC was a free sub domain service that gave you a sub domain (like snat.co.cc) and then gave you full DNS access so you could use it as you would a normal domain and the service worked great – even I used them for a few throw away domains but that is where the problem came in.

Latest page and mobile friendly stuff

Within the last few days I have been getting some messages from some fans of Tweaked for your Pleasure whom has alerted me that the site is actually kinda hard to read and find stuff. Originally I decided to change the layout of the website so that the homepage is spilt into the different sections – rants, videos and reviews.

The reason for this is the same as I said before – some people only liked reading certain sections, others liked the different sections and while I did put a link to the latest article on the home page, I have seen and been informed this is not so helpful. The reason it isn't helpful is that it only informs you of the latest articles within that section and to check for new content over the whole site you would need to visit each section whcih does take a bit of time.

Another one bite the dusts

For my more loyal readers, you are likely aware that in the year 2008 I wrote an article called “Reasons why you shouldn’t use a free forum host” which outlined a few problems with using a free forum host. While it was not my best written work (is any ?) it did explain that if you was to use a free forum host then make sure to keep backups if you can.

A few days ago I learnt that IPBFree went off-line suddenly and so many forum administrators have now finally lost their forums and likely had no backups what so ever. Searching around, all I can see about what happened was that IPBFree was taken off-line relating to DMCA matters which does not surprise me as IPBFree was a forum service filled with warez forums.
