The Amber Light

I have recorded what happened in this rant. I will upload it this week and will embed the video at the bottom.

For those that knows me well will know that I hate random lights on when I am trying to sleep and this is the tale of the motherboard that refused to turn off.

For the last few weeks I have been upgrading my PC and although it is not yet done (still need to get more RAM, new I/O panel and what not) the computer itself turns on and works fine although it a very loud device (the I/O panel has a temperature sensor on it to fix this).

Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure returns

Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure

Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure

After quite a long delay with Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure I am pleased to say it is now coming back although it will no longer be weekly as originally planned but “as and when”.

Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure will be coming back in two forms – the reviews and the rants which both have their own style of editing and other things I am sure you do not care about.

For the reviews I will be carrying on as I normally have – just get something, whack it in front of the camera and then review it in a half arse way – much like how Dr Ashens does them which is what my reviews are influenced by. The next one though is the rants and honestly I figured I would go back to the original idea I had for them – allow people to give ideas!

The wheels on the bus

.... a sight I am sure you all seen

If you are a long-term reader of Tweaked for your Pleasure then I am pretty sure you are aware that I do not like the public bus service that runs near me and yet again today we have another horror story.

So the other day I was coming home from a place that is long dead when I had to get the bus which the school children uses. While I normally have no problems with that bus as the children go upstairs and there is room below, I seem to have it on the day where a few people who was getting on the bus had the biggest ego in the world – an ego so powerful that it makes Final Fantasy’s Kefka look like he is actually a normal jester.

Your child is not my problem

It is not often I find things to moan about, it just looks that way by how often I post but today I came across something that I figured was worth writing about.

So today I was in the local town picking up a few things I needed where I came across a women whom was with her child. Now there is not much you can say about that but after I picked some things up, I then went up to the local library so I could pass a few hours until the next bus comes so I can go home where this women and her child once again turns up.

LAMS back online

As I highly doubt you have noticed nor care, but I have finally got around to looking Look at my Spam back online after it has been down for around three to four months.

In case you do not know but Look at my Spam is a website that is a small project to find how easy it was to get spammed by just leaving one email link at the bottom of a website. Well I can say safety so far with the project, I am getting roughly five emails a minute. Some of the emails are coming from Yahoo groups, random marketing and some people who feels it is funny to email stuff there hoping their email will be published on the website.

Yet another Javascript redirect

Google Safe Browsing Warning PageThis article is not really a rant but rather an alert for any that is currently Googling this. I have found on a few websites that I hosted on an older system had random PHP script inserted into the start of the index.php file.

The code below is what is being inserted into index.php files. So far I have not seen it attack any other pages.

However with that said, lets see what this PHP code is doing and hopefully what you can do about it.

As you can see this is clearly just a encoded PHP script – much like the same I do on Can you work it out. So if we just decode it, we now get what the server is actually executing.

“I refuse to STAND in line”

Another day of hearing crap, listen to this.

So the other day I was standing in line at a Government building awaiting to meet up with someone when this foreigner walked into the building. Now that in itself was not surprising and heck, there is not really anything wrong with that but it was the next bit that happened was the interesting bit.

Me standing in a line and not being an arse to everyone else.

Random person walks behind me.

Random person going on about "shitty" English people and having to stand behind them when he should be going first because English people to him are second rate people and this has now started to get  too long.

Do not get me wrong, I would prefer a world where anyone can travel anywhere and live, but if you come over to a country then expect to see their people, their culture and their way of living and do not go bitching when you suddenly meet up with the people that has been living there way longer then you.

So that’s my rant for the week, not a lot but a few pretty pictures. So to sum up – if you go anywhere for any reasons, respect the people and culture over there and no one will actually give a shit that you are there.

Get your voice out there

For over eight years now I have enjoyed posting many different articles, documents and many more on the World Wide Web and it is quite amazing to see not everyone even does this (other than not wanting to, of course).

I was reading an article someone wrote today, an article that actually made me think about a few things which I already knew but in ways just could not be bothered with.

For many, many months now I have always wanted to update Tweaked for your Pleasure once a week. There is “always” something I can write about weekly but yet I do not. There is always that little bit of time on the bus, trains that I often have now and then in which I could use to write but I end up not doing so. I have always wanted to want to make sure all articles on Tweaked for your Pleasure was over 500 words and something you would enjoy reading each week.
