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!

A lost chance at a universal language

This article is not speaking about Esperanto although I am interested in learning this language on Duolingo.

If you are to think about languages that people use what do you think? English? Maybe Hebrew, Chinese or Spanish but I bet you are thinking of a verbal language. What if I told you there is another type of language (and I am not talking about mathematics or programming languages) and I am writing about visual languages such as the British Sign Language.

My favourite method of transport

This is the first of many essays about different topics I will be writing about. While I enjoy ranting on Tweaked for your Pleasure, I also do enjoy just writing about stuff and with this I am going to split my time between them.

“Bike’s” by Nick Fedirko is licensed under CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 

Transport is one of the most vital things for anyone in our modern world as it gets us to places of employment, education, social hangouts and much more but to myself one of the best reasons for transport is recreation and with this in mind I am going to write about my favourite method of transport – riding a bicycle.

Many years ago beyond a number I do not wish to count, I learned how to ride a bicycle with my oldest sister. I still remember the massive park where I was riding my first blue / yellow coloured scheme bike and I still remember smashing between the two slits on the park’s fence which enforced just how important wearing a helmet is.

Why a “card phone” is surprisingly a good idea.

When I first heard about Palm creating a “companion” phone that was designed to work with your main phone I could not help but laugh at the idea as after all if you have your phone in your pocket then why do you care about having another phone on you?

Well, I said the same originally but honestly after using the Ytesky Qmart Q1 for quite some time now I am actually for the idea. For anyone that read Tweaked for your Pleasure I think it is safe to assume you likely use your mobile phone in order to send an email, send a few messages on Discord, play a few games and such and not actually use the mobile as a phone “that” much and that is fine, that is just the evolution of mobile phones.

Funny thing about sleeping

Surprisingly gets harder to sleep.

Surprisingly gets harder to sleep.

It’s a common fact that the more times you do something you slowly get better at doing those things when you gain more experience but sleeping is one of those things that oddly does not work out like that.

When you think about it when you are in your youth you easily sleep just about anywhere you want and when you want but as you grow older sleeping becomes a much harder thing to do.

With most thing in life the more times you repeat something and practice you end up getting better at it but sleeping is one of those things you need to go out of your way to physically alter many things like diet, lighting and other “sleep health” stuff just so you can get more restful sleep where otherwise other things would just improve over time.

Although I suppose its worth saying that if you are reading this and having a problem sleeping there are a couple of things you can do such as having a dark room, going to sleep at the same time each day and just using your bed to sleep. I could also comment on dieting and exercising but I imagine if you got sleep problems you already looked it up online.

But for everyone else I’m sure you can remember a time where you used to sleep easily and then other times where you just could not sleep at all for some reason. But while I might joke around a bit on this website but seriously we spend over a third of our lives sleeping and we never get better at it in theory.

Get a grip sleeping and let us get better with practice already.

Why its important to learn

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Lazy Learners.”

Totally not sitting on a table.

Totally not sitting on a table.

So I was reading the Daily Prompt earlier this morning after finding it on a website I read quite often (am hoping to update Tweaked for your Pleasure quite a bit more) and saw something that caught my eye – being lazy about learning.  Continue reading
