With summer coming up at the time of writing this article I am noticing in 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 web hosting and I figured my experience would be an interesting read for those that may be thinking of doing the same.
Those that know me well will know that I hate random lights on when I am trying to sleep and this is the tale of the motherboard that refused to turn off.
For the last few weeks, I have been upgrading my PC and although it is not yet done (still need to get more RAM, a new I/O panel and whatnot) the computer itself turns on and works fine although it is a very loud device (the I/O panel has a temperature sensor on it to fix this).
After quite a long delay with Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure I am pleased to say it is now coming back although it will no longer be weekly as originally planned but “as and when”.
Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure will be coming back in two forms – the reviews and the rants which both have their style of editing and other things I am sure you do not care about.
For the reviews I will be carrying on as I normally have – just get something, whack it in front of the camera and then review it in a half-arse way – much like how Dr Ashens does them which is what my reviews are influenced by. The next one though is the rants and honestly, I figured I would go back to the original idea I had for them – allow people to give ideas!
If you are a long-term reader of Tweaked for your Pleasure then I am pretty sure you are aware that I do not like the public bus service that runs near me and yet again today we have another horror story.
So the other day I was coming home from a place that is long dead when I had to get the bus which the school children use. While I normally have no problems with that bus as the children go upstairs and there is room below, I seem to have it on the day when a few people who were getting on the bus had the biggest ego in the world – an ego so powerful that it makes Final Fantasy’s Kefka look like he is a normal jester.
It is not often I find things to moan about, it just looks that way by how often I post but today I came across something that I figured was worth writing about.
So today I was in the local town picking up a few things I needed when I came across a woman who was with her child. Now there is not much you can say about that but after I picked some things up, I then went up to the local library so I could pass a few hours until the next bus came so I could go home where this woman and her child once again turns up.
As I highly doubt you have noticed nor care, but I have finally got around to looking Look at my Spam back online after it has been down for around three to four months.
In case you do not know but Look at my Spam is a website that is a small project to find how easy it was to get spammed by just leaving one email link at the bottom of a website. Well I can say safety so far with the project, I am getting roughly five emails a minute. Some of the emails are coming from Yahoo groups, random marketing and some people who feels it is funny to email stuff there hoping their email will be published on the website.
