It has been quite a long time from when I have written a news update. As you may have seen by now unless you are one of the few that gets email updates, there is a new pop up on the bottom left that is alerting you about cookies. The reason for this is simple that the EU decided to bring a new law in to help privacy but their solution is like nuking a nuclear weapon that is about to be used on another nuclear weapon – pointless and useless.
Aside from this this alert will only pop up once when you first ever visit the website and will never bother you again. Naturally the pop up explains how to opt out of all the cookies and all that so it is worth a look if you want your privacy. Continue reading →
Now it is quite rare that I find something on the World Wide Web that is worth looking at and today I am writing about one them. So someone I follow on Twitter discovered a new interesting project called “Dotsies” and after having a look at it – I have to say that I am very impressed. The idea behind the thing is simply to look at replacing the Latin script for reading. As you may know that the Latin script is now over 1000 years old and it has served it’s time well.
Having originally being designed to allow people to easily write, it takes up too much space today when devices are getting smaller and smaller. Dotsies is little different to how the Arabic numbering system replaced the old roman numeral (such as how we write 12345 and not MMMMMMMMMMMMCCCXLV).
Yesterday I published the following news and there has been some “wondering” related to it. In case you missed the news, I have posted it again below.
I have been informed that there is a few copyright issues on the videos of Wrights Productions and this includes Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure for certain reasons.
This is not however bad news for my fans. For your pleasure I am going to be re-uploading these to my YouTube account (remember originally I never was able to upload long videos) but will be editing them to fix them up at parts. These will include the new modern intro, HD resolution although it will be on a dolphin backdrop and the start of each video will be re-done to state what happened.
I am sure many people may have noticed that Tweaked for your Pleasure went offline some time in the morning only to come back online at a later time. Well, I figured I may as well write why so. Basically what happened is my vps provider called VPS.NET on Feb 8, 2012 decided for a reason I do not know to do a SAN synchronization at the database that the vps is located.
Well this was all good but what happened is the I/O on the SAN unit went nuts and well it crashed a lot of things and forced VPS.NET to ultimately having to stop the SAN synchronization and delay it until a later time. Continue reading →
Well it has been a few months from when I said to people on Tweaked for your Pleasure that I will be doing a contest and well, I have no idea what to do a contest about – until today!
In the past I was thinking of doing something like “who can comment the most” or “who can do X the most” and then I was thinking of something like “Try to work out what X means” and while the second one is very interesting, I have found many people simply are not able to work it out.
So I thought for some time what could be a fun contest which would both be interesting to see and would actually allow people to think but also for anyone to enter. With all this in mind I have decided to start a contest so welcome too…. Continue reading →
As many people may know from reading Tweaked for your Pleasure, I do tend to eat a lot of fast food and other non healthy food. I am sure many of the reasons why people do tend to these food like this is mostly for two reasons;
They do not have time to make healthier food (although it is NOT that hard nor long to do).
They believe that the “healthy” food does not taste as good.
While I can understand the first option, it is the second option I do not understand. While I will agree food like that does taste very nice but it does not last. Now I am not sure if I am the only person who this happens too but when I am eating something like chips & cheese that I will enjoy while a lot of it but after a while I start to get a salty sickly taste that will start to appear.
