Sony vs. Microsoft

How to do it.
How not to do it.

Round 1: Sony.
Maybe more execs will learn that having fun and believing in what you do makes you more believable (and thus gets you more results) than drowning in marketing research reports and demographic nonsense.

WordPress Security: Limit Login Attempts

Limit Login Attempts

The picture says it all really. There are bots active trying to hack WordPress sites all over the web by trying to log in to your account using any and all possible password combinations.
This plugin allows you to lock it down by setting the amount of retries you allow before the ip address of the person trying to get in gets blocked. It’s effective, and necessary.
Also make sure you rename the default admin account as this is the username the bots use for their login attempts.


Yellow shrimp


Sneaky little buggers, sometimes I don’t see any for weeks and I’m convinced they’ve all been eaten and then all of a sudden; there they are. Kinda like my posting intervals.


Mountain Lion on an older Mac


If you’re still stuck on Lion because your Mac isn’t compatible with Mountain Lion you might want to take a look at this project where people have created an app called MLPostFactor. It allows you to install Mountain Lion on pretty much any Mac that can run Lion. It’s still beta software and you have to know what you’re doing (which goes for most things in life) but it looks good, might have to give it a try on our old white iMac.


I gots ads yo

Pigs are flying, it’s raining frogs, I’ve signed up to an affiliate program.
From now on you can see some banners around the site advertising Jbox/J-list, a shop specializing in Japanese quirkiness.
Why this one and not others? Because they sell stuff like this, this and this. Which is all awesome. So if it’s good enough that I want to buy it it’s good enough to advertise for it. And if you go there and buy something I get a little store credit so I can buy something there too.
So check it out. :D


One emulator to rule them all


Coming soon, looks sweet. Multiple emulators in one and a nice interface to manage the games.
For the brave or the impatient you can grab the OpenEmu source on github and compile it yourself.

Work in progress... home!
Trying to get all/most of the new code working before I start on the eyecandy.
