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!

It’s okay to accept a refund

It should come to no surprise to anyone reading this that I enjoy eating fried chicken which has a knock-off effect that I tend to order out a take away quite a bit (although this year I have cut down on that massively) and about three-quarters of the time it will arrive without any problems but this article isn’t about those times – it’s about the other quarter.

Let me set the scene for you. It is getting late in the evening and you get the taste of curry in your mouth. You quickly click on your favorite take away and order yourself a Chicken Korma, some Fried Rice, and garlic bread and you click that magical order button which in just under forty-five minutes will bring you that curry you are dying to eat … and the rice is missing.

My time as a hosting provider

There is no client data there – its the old package page.

With summer coming up at the time of writing this article I am noticing on communities such as Lowendbox that a lot of web hosts are appearing out of nowhere and it reminded me of my experiences, successes and failures in running my own web hosting and I figured my experience would be an interesting read for those that may be thinking of doing the same.

Let’s make some noise!

I am one of the first people that understands, embraces and outright thankful for every single health worker, vital employes, charity worker providing aid, and everyone that works together to keep the clogs of society going but can we all agree on something and that this whole making noise thing for them is a lot of crap.

Don’t click reply-all

If you have ever worked in a large organisation, studied in further / higher education or worked anywhere that is close to being a Government career you will know exactly what I am writing about and that is the insanely dreadful email spam that is “Hey Matthew, I got your email LOL”.
