For a short, while now I have been trying out a service called Gener8 that has a simple goal in mind – they will replace all the adverts you see on websites with their own and instead of the owner of the website being paid, you are.  Continue reading

Plans for 2018

I have no idea how long it has been from when I last updated Tweaked for your Pleasure but I figure it’s worth speaking a bit about the changes I will be making on this website which I am aiming to start doing this year.

The first thing is soon I will be updating the website with new rants weekly. These rants are ones I have had for quite a while but one of the main issues I have had right now is making a cover image for each one even if they are only made in MS Paint although I now have a solution ready for this. I will also be doing monthly short stories from ideas found on Reddit as I did for the last one I posted a very long while ago.

I am also going to be posting programming tutorials which you will find a new section soon on this website (likely to be called Developer’s Compendium based on an old idea for a website in the past). The section called “Is it nice” may be removed as I do not see updating these often but if I decide to keep it I will be moving it into another header on the site itself.

With all that in mind, I will be changing the email subscriptions so you only get the content you want to read and further information about that will be posted in due time.

Video wise I will be releasing Playing Games with Snat two times a week although they will now be cut down to about 15 minutes or less and more edited to remove the more boring parts of them. I am also hoping to be work on Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure again although there is no time frame for this yet.

And lastly, it is quite likely I will be redesigning the website once again!

Why the sugar tax will fail

Why the Sugar tax will fail

I don’t think there are many people who honestly don’t believe there is an obesity issue going on in the world and an issue that will take a massive mindset to change with education being the major thing that will be able to help but one of the ideas that have been floating around is the idea of a sugar tax (or “soft drinks industry levy”) which for the last two weeks or so officially started in the United Kingdom.

The logic behind this is pretty simple in that if you increase the price of sugar products that one of two things will happen. The first being the price of the drinks, foods etc will go up and the products that have less sugar or none will be cheaper and people will go over to buying them. The second is companies start using less sugar in order to keep the price around the same. Continue reading

My child is special!

Please ... be quiet

Please … be quiet

Its a simple fact of life that biologically most people are able to have children and in our modern society for those that want children but unable to do so naturally could adopt a child (although I will not go into the fact most people want babies and leave actual children to stay in the care system) but society needs to learn that not everyone wants children and even more so not everyone think children are all that special.  Continue reading

What have we became?

Just put the phone down, okay?

Just put the phone down, okay?

I doubt very few people will disagree with me that driving can be hard work and even more so when you are first starting to drive by yourself if you can not avoid flashing lights or a random beep then you really should not be driving.

I read an article the other day on the BBC (Signal-blocking phone pouches’ for St Patrick’s pupils) where a school gave up with an idea where they would give their students special bags that is able to block mobiles signals from working so they will not get any phone calls, text messages, emails app alerts or social media notices and in theory this idea is not a bad one … until you think that the students they are giving this too can not just turn off their phone or hell turn it to silent.
