Whilst browsing the Internet I recently ran into an interesting (and probably totally unreallistic) idea: universities should be free from charge for all students. Their (i.e. universities') income should be funded exclusively off a tax charged unconditionally from all alumni for the first years after they graduate. This would - in theory - lead to… Czytaj dalej Economical mumbo-jumbo
While surfing the Internet I recently found an interesting (although completely incomprehensible) proof of a conjecture stating that 0, 1, 8 and 144 are the only perfect squares in the famous Fibonacci sequence. For greenhorns: Fibonacci sequence starts with 0 followed by 1, then each subsequent terms is a sum of two preceding terms: 0,… Czytaj dalej 0, 1, 8, 144 (EN)
A little bird told me that car insurance prices are going up again this year - both in Ireland and in other EU countries. It is slightly against the common sense; the usual logic used to be: "No claims? We'll reward you with a lower premium next year!". Not anymore, unfortunately. For some totally incomprehensible… Czytaj dalej Reflected-sound-of-underground-spirits, again
As Confucius used to say, shit happens. He was a smart lad so there is no point not to believe him. Shit that happens to happen is usually a bad shit. More or less. Ocasionally you discover that some of the bad shit happens only to unravel a surprisingly good shit later on which… Czytaj dalej Sh*t happens
This is what my fellow colleague used to say when someone was trying to explain Things to him. Being lazy is actually a good thing. It's just that some people mix laziness with sloppiness which creates a negative perception of the former. Need examples? Here we go! I work with computers so here goes a… Czytaj dalej „I’m lazy, not stupid”
Few years ago I made a small purchase for my blog: a WordPress menu plug-in called UberMenu. A really nice, fully featured, with all the necessary bells and whistles menu replacing the dull and boring thing you get from WordPress by default. And it was working perfectly fine with the theme I was using at… Czytaj dalej A short story about (in)consistency
Actually, this is just a place for my stuff, ya know? That's all; a little place for my stuff. That's all I want, that's all you need in life, is a little place for your stuff, ya know? I can see it on your table, everybody's got a little place for their stuff. This is… Czytaj dalej George Carlin: A Place For My Stuff
If you still remember my recent post on moving my hosting onto a brand new, shining VPS server (from an old, equally shining one) then I feel deeply sorry for you. The entry was dull and boring like an opening session of the legislature on import / export regulations of reaper binders. And also useful… Czytaj dalej A Third Variable
If you ever wondered why, despite all your efforts and Goole-jistsu, you still couldn't get W3TC to detect your local memcached install, well. You haven't googled enough 😉 The hat trick is to swap 127.0.0.1 for localhost in /etc/memcached.conf: # Specify which IP address to listen on. The default is to listen on all IP… Czytaj dalej Memcached and W3TC
So, you think you know what "boring" means? You think you've watched some three hours of Parliament discussions about legal ways of composting farms' waste, and you got bored? Well, you haven't seen anything yet. The site you have just reached is the most dull, boring and useless part of the Internet. It is the… Czytaj dalej Bloody Thursday
If you are reading this post, chances are you are either one of my three returning visitors (although there is a possibility that some - or even all - of those three, died of boredom) or you recently tried to update the Yop Poll WordPress plugin from version 4.9.1 to 5.0, you lost all your… Czytaj dalej Yop Poll – do not upgrade to 5.0!
Gmail went down for about half an hour this afternoon. This is a second disruption of the service in the last two weeks. I am starting to wonder whether I should move my email to another provider. Any hints? Thoughts?
Somewhen in June 2010 I got my very first smartphone. It was a Samsung Galaxy S. OK, to be completely honest, I used to use one or two Windows Mobile based phones since around 2006 but let's face the truth: Android is to Windows Mobile as is a Tyranosaurus Rex to a cow. Well, maybe… Czytaj dalej Back to roots
