This section of Tweaked for your Pleasure has the many different rants I have posted over the years. Just a bit of light-hearted reading!

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”.

The negativity of the Internet

If you are worried about the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, please do check out the NHS’s website for further information. Good chances are you will okay but stay at home – don’t pass it onto someone that might not be!

At the time of writing this rant, there is a pandemic of SARS-CoV-2 that is affecting most nations at this time and while it looks like something that the masses will survive, it is something that is very important to deal with but as a former microbiologist, I am starting to notice just how horrible the mass amount of false information on the Internet can be and why it is harmful.

The hardest part of losing weight

Doesn’t matter that you want a break

If you have been reading Tweaked for your Pleasure for many years you will likely think I hate children but you could not be further away from the truth. It is not children I hate but rather their parents and sadly I got another story of yet again another parent who likely claims having a child is a miracle just to be the first one to disappear the second someone else looks after the child for a while.

My story begins at a public library that has a computer section, a children section, a reference / quiet area, and a general reading area and in order to kill some time I decided to read a copy of the Torah. I imagine it is the same as in most libraries but religious books tend to be in the reference area which is normally nice and quiet.

So I grab my tablet and boot up Discord, pull out a small bottle of Irn Bru while I put the Torah on my lap ready to read and to no surprise I hear crying. Sadly children do cry and sometimes parents can find it hard to pacify a child but their parent took the child to the reference area away from the children’s area rather than trying anything which seems meaningful.
