Fuck modern smartphones

Over the last few weeks, I have been looking in buying a new phone and tablet to replace the ageing ones I have and so far I am liking the Surface Duo and a Surface Pro, mostly based on my experiences with Surface products in the past, but fuck me they both show the problems I have with modern phones nowadays.

When to pass on the torch?

Over the last month or two during the process of passing over leadership of a community to someone else, I have been thinking about all of the communities I have run over the years and the question in the title popped into my mind – when is it time to pass on the torch to a community and I figured I would speak a little about my experiences on the reasons why I did before I comment on when it is time.

Phasmophobia: My Review

You may have noticed that over the last few months I have not been releasing Playing Games with Snat and there are a couple of reasons why I am going to be relaunching the series on a different channel but one of the reasons of late is I do not enjoy gaming as much as I used too but Phasmophobia … is interesting.

Phasmophobia explains itself pretty much in its name but the idea of the game is to go ghost hunting and collect evidence to figure out the type of ghost and then do a few objectives and get out there all without being murdered by the ghost.

Why BAT could change the ecosystem

Privacy is something that many people don’t find important until it is lost and lately a lot of web browsers has started to take a heavy hand where it comes to their user’s privacy as that data is worth so much to companies such as Google, Facebook and it is something that the Brave Browser aims to share upon its users by keeping the user’s information within the browser and not sharing it to either themselves or advertisers. To the end-user, they are paid via a token which they can exchange for fiat currency.

The token I will be discussing is known as Basic Attention Token (BAT for short) and the basic idea is every time you are shown an advert you are given some tokens in the form of a cryptocurrency that is based on ETH which you can then cash out or more importantly – tip it.

Stop scaring the children

Just like how I imagine most people reading Tweaked for your Pleasure have at one point had to go to a physical shop in order to buy some food due to a delivery company not delivering, barely anything came or any other reason and today was one of those days with a catch.

So today I went to the local CO-OP in order to buy some food as ASDA, yet again, did not deliver a third of the order and didn’t replace it for anything nor took it off my bill and with my diet, I couldn’t really keep ordering out food every day so I got into the car and drove. Once I arrived I did something that so many people in the United Kingdom seem to refuse to do and popped a mask and a pair of gloves and went inside.

Wear that mask!

How I do backups

If there is one thing I will stress repeatedly to everyone is that it is very important to not only make backups but to also test those backups and today I thought I would go over how I do my backups for a couple of websites.

The first thing I will state is for personal websites I myself prefer to do these manually rather than automatically but each step is easy to automate and for the database side of things I do run a plugin that does that part. Without further delay lets go into a bit of detail how I manually make these backups and why I do it this way!
