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!

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.

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!

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.
