Computers in Hollywood, never realistic… but fucking Jurassic Park is the worst.

You have a Velociraptor bashing (no pun intended) at the door, you need to lock the doors quick as it’s only Sam Neill holding the nasty little fucks back.

So what method do you think the brains behind Jurassic Park decided would be the best way to secure a big fucking metal door.

  1. A fucking lock on the door?
  2. A switch next to the door to lock it?
  3. A fucking archaic Unix graphic file browser where you have a 3D representation of the file structure, and you have to find the program to lock the doors?

Of course, it’s number three. For fuck’s sake.

Just interested in where the fire alarm is, the parent folder?

It is actually a real piece of software called FSN, or Fusion by Silicon Graphics.

Internet Explorer CAPTCHA

Trying to decode some CAPTCHA’s can be a pain in the ass, but when this one came up, well I thought I had it nailed.

ie-cpatcga

Just so you know, describing IE10 as crap, shite, bollocks and pisspoor didn’t work.

Armoured Warfare camo

Finally got paid, so now I can play around with the new AW camouflage options on my lovely new T-80.

Doesn’t it look beautiful! Nothing quite like trashing Leopard 2’s and looking fabulous doing it 😛

Domain searching… and now I can’t stop laughing

Following a high level web team meeting yesterday, we wondered why no one had registered sh.it as a domain. It seems the Italians were one step ahead and it’s current status is Unassignable.

Well that’s a little unfair, but still, there’s other possibilities. Is there a .ks TLD? Well yes there is, it’s for Kosovo but given that no one can agree on the status of that country, it’s not yet available. That’s bolloc.ks fucked then.

Can’t quite think of any more right now… but I know there’s a .ck TLD, so let’s have a look. Ah the Cook Islands, and it looks like they have a few second level domains as well, let’s just have a look… what the fuck!

Seriously Cook Islands? You think it was a good idea to have a company level domain called .co.ck? Do you have many registrations by any chance?

Experience with an iPhone 5

Well someone was selling an iPhone 5 cheaply, so why not, and with an unlimited 4G data plan from Three, so thought it would be a time for an experiment.

First thing that got on my tits was the screen size. After using a Nexus 5 since it’s release, it was a strange experience to go back to a smaller screen especially when it came to the poxy keyboard on the iPhone. Swiftkey was the first app to be installed.

But on the whole, the iPhone 5 is quicker at loading apps and with Chrome installed instead of that crap called Safari, I’m liking the experience and maybe if it was an iPhone 6 I would get on with it better, but I think I’ll be upgrading to the new Nexus 5 when that is released later this year rather than the expense of a iPhone 6. It’ll make a good work phone as no one other than PPI salespeople seem to know the outside phone number of the web team’s desk phone!

But you know the best thing about an iPhone?

MacOS media keys stopped working

The Play/Pause media key in iTunes stopped working recently, and while ploughing through pages and pages of answers, I suddenly remembered the last experience of when the Next and Previous media keys stopped working.

That solution involved killing off the Google Music extension in Google Chrome as it hijacked the keys, so it couldn’t have been that screwing up my Play/Pause button.

So just for shits and giggles, I went to chrome://extensions and scrolled down to Keyboard Shortcuts at the bottom, and what do you know, Black Menu for Google was hijacking the Play button.


Click on the dropdown where it says Global to In Chrome and hey presto, I don’t have to click to iTunes to pause music anymore.
