As you see and hear the devastating details about the tornado in Oklahoma City, stop and ask yourself “Am I prepared?” What about your family? Your friends?
Do you know where you’d go in your home if a tornado came to town? What about when you’re at work? Or during your commute?
All to often we have seconds to seek shelter. Seconds that could be the difference between life and death. So are you prepared?
Tornadoes have hit every state in the US and everyone needs to have a plan in place. Some states are more tornado prone than others, but no one is immune.
I love trailers where they mix and match!
Star Trek + Looney Tunes would make an epic movie!
Last week I was able to fly out to California and visit Facebook headquarters. One of the cool things about the area I was in were the quotes on the walls. Some were large, some where small, but they were all true to Facebook.
They also had an art wall that showcased some pretty cool, Facebook inspired artwork.
Back in October, Echofon released a statement saying that they were ending support for their Mac Twitter application. They had no plans on updating to Twitter’s API version 1.1 and so it’s days were numbered.
However, just today, they quietly updated the desktop app with API 1.1 support so it’ll live on. Not only did they upgrade the API support, but they also had various bug fixes.
Oddly enough, it seems that my ads are gone too. Actually the ads are still there, they are just so subtle that I don’t always notice them.
I asked Siri if strawberries like the sun or the shade more and she looked up strip clubs!
Also, I checked out Time Music Agency and it’s not a strip club. Just saying.
And just so you know, strawberries like the shade, but want at least 6 hours of sunshine.
If you have a D-Link wireless router chances are there is a USB port on the back. With this, you can set up a printer wirelessly.
Sadly, you can not just plug it and be happy. That’s too easy. Instead, D-Link created Shareport. Shareport is their software that is supposed to make the magic happen, but it sucks. I hear it works OK on Windows, but not very good, if at all, on Mac. But there is hope.
It’s been 6 years since I released a WordPress plugin so it’s about time. My new one even includes cats, bacon and zombies! Introducing the CBZ Auto Create Posts WordPress Plugin.
As a WordPress developer, I often setup new sites and have to create dummy posts so that I have something to develop and test with. One or two aren’t bad, but when you need 11 or more to test pagination and other features, it’s not quite as fun. So I created a plugin.
If a site asks you to login, then someone will try to hack it. WordPress is no exception. The good news is it’s really simple to make your site even more secure.
1. Strong Passwords
This should be a no brainer, but people continue to use simple passwords. I’ve seen major companies using horribly easy to guess passwords. WHY?!
Now you don’t need to go all crazy and make something you’ll never remember, just get creative. Like cowsEatingIceCream4fun! or I’mBrining$xyBack4u. Those passwords have a lot of characters, include a number, and a special character, however, chances are you can remember them. According to one of the password testing tools, the sexy one will take a computer 364 quintillion years to crack. That’s a long time!
Recently our garage door started being really finicky. It’d start to close, then go right backup as if something tripped the sensor. Turns out something was; the sun.
To fix it, I simply took a paint stir stick that I found in my garage and placed it on top of the sensor making sure the sensor lens was completely in the shadow. Fix time, 10 seconds.
It’s worked like a charm every day for the past month. No more confused garage door.
There is lots of buzz on the internet right now about Facebook’s Home app.
- Facebook Home is an application that puts people first, apps second.
- It’s not a phone, although Facebook partnered with HTC and ATT to build phones that are built around Facebook Home.
- Facebook now has ‘Cover Feed’ this is the main feature of the new app.
- Cover Feed allows you to see the latest posts from friends by just glancing at your phone.
- It’s kind of like a fancy Facebook screensaver with some other cool features.
