thank you for
defeating crushing us at Memory last evening. It made for a proud, if somewhat humiliating, daddy moment. Quite good for a 3 year old.
thank you for
Now here’s a game I’d actually play. An Open Source remake of the ’94 Microprose classic Colonization. Runs on any OS and it looks like it’s work in progress (v0.10, although with open source that could also mean it’s pretty feature complete already), but quite beautiful. Give it a try.
Tired of my Apple posts? Go check out the ‘latest greatest’ anti-Apple site, Daring No Balls.
I’ve got to hand it to him, it’s a nifty idea. When you have nothing to say, want to create a website and don’t have a clue, simply start an anti-site, target some of the most popular bloggers and enjoy the ride as the backlinks and traffic come by itself (quod erat demonstrandum). The actual site is piss poor of course, hell even the title is unimaginative. No layout, no content, a few very lame stabs at Apple. Android battery life better than iPhone? Yeah, maybe it lasts longer because nobody actually likes using the damn things. And since when is having to buy your own replacement battery every 2 years a positive feature for Android phones? Come on, I love my Apple stuff and even I could come up with a better anti-Apple site. The only valid comment on there is about the amount of leaks on Jobs’ biography.
Too bad comments are disabled for all posts, if he enabled them he could really lean back and enjoy the Flamewars of Doom started by all the Apple & Android fanboys.
WordPress automatically wraps content in html paragraphs. Sometimes this can be undesired, for example when you’re making one-liner posts using the new post formats for links or status updates. The easiest way around this is by setting the filter in your template.
It looks like this, snippet taken from my format-status.php:
First we use remove_filter to tell WordPress not to use automatic < p> tags for the_content, then we output the content, and immediately afterwards we use add_filter to restore the filter or it’ll also be off for all the subsequent posts on the page.
Bought a new 2TB external USB drive by Samsung for the iMac. I know Samsung doesn’t like Apple but this is ridiculous. Whenever the computer goes to sleep the drive ejects, and when the computer wakes up again, the drive doesn’t.
Looking into this I discovered this has been a common problem for a lot of people. It seems several brands/models exhibit this behavior. It’s not limited to Lion btw, older versions are affected as well. So buyer beware.
In my case the problem was easily ‘fixed’ by swapping it with one of my Mac Mini’s drives as that one runs 24/7 and never sleeps (being used as a server and all).
