I’m in a constant lookout for humours, sofa friendly point and click/adventure games. Please send me a suggestion if you know one. Here’s the list of game I played. I hope it gets indexed for you to find when you are on a quest to find a new game. I highly recommend all of the… Continue reading Looking for similar point and click games
For last two months I’ve been using Virgin Media Hub 3.0 and I haven’t found a single think to like about it. Part of it is that Virgin Media internet isn’t as good as promised – 200Mbps link gives this speed only during benchmarks to VM servers. Real world speeds usually hover around 20Mbps with… Continue reading I’m not happy with Virgin Hub 3.0 (BT Hub 4 is much better)
LBC offers paid podcasts and BeyondPod supports authentication, but not the one http://lbc.audioagain.com/ uses. The typical link to feed advertised on the website looks like this: http://lbc.audioagain.com/podcast_feed.php?channel=subjames But there’s also a “hidden” link that accepts HTTP auth: http://lbc.audioagain.com/podcast.php?channel=subjames And the second one works well in BeyondPod.
Most hotel wifis are open, so to secure my connections I’ve set up myself a PPTP VPN using QNAS TS-453A box (btw. great machine, get one!) to tunnel all my traffic via encrypted connection. Windows 10 and Android are connecting to the VPN and the traffic goes smoothly, but my Mac OS X El Captain caused… Continue reading [solved] Mac OS X PPTP VPN connects, but not forward traffic goes through
I love CloudFlare. Not only because it lowers the load on our servers and speeds up page load time, but it helps us to react to problems quickly. The most obvious case is when our server goes down we can redirect all the traffic to our spare server in a matter of few clicks. But… Continue reading CloudFlare to the rescue!
Update: the OVH hosting caused us a lot of problems and we parted our ways. The post below is no longer relevant. Justhost.com is useless when you try to run a business there (it’s a decent playground when you do not care that some things just do not work from time to time). They offer amazing… Continue reading OVH hosting – first impressions
Our new jewellery store is hosted on JustHost.com. I owned the a standard shared server for couple of years now and it was doing it’s job. My static pages were served, email was working fine. Until we started doing something serious… We tried to run Harry Fay for a week before I realized it is… Continue reading JustHost shared service – standard vs pro
Since google is charging for their translate service and bing translator is crap, I decided to switch to Wiktionary. I downloaded main dump marked “en” only to discover, that it contains a bit more than just English. Below is the list of languages with their corresponding word count. Are all of those languages real? Language… Continue reading 769 languages found on wiktionary.org!
Today British police made available their new service – a complete street level map of crimes in England and Wales. The webpage made to all possible headlines in daily papers, tv and radio. The effect is that the service is virtually down and won’t be usable until the novelty wears out. All web pages have… Continue reading How British police made me set up my next project on the cloud
I spend long hours reading on-line (don’t we all?). Most of interesting material is available in English only (including en.wikipedia.org which is much superior to my native pl.wikipedia.org), so I tend to read all in that language. And as it is my second tongue, I need to use translator quite often. Google translator is doing… Continue reading TranslateMe – my first Chrome extension
