It has now got to the point that I automatically delete anything that mentions SEO.
Turns out that Google are hassling them over a link I have in my blog sidebar. They interpret the links as advertising spam because they appear on EVERY page of my blog and the website is not about sleep apneoa.
Originally I signed up for the $40 contribution, which would give me a perk of the first two seasons on DVD, plus extras. However, soon after, they announced a LootCrate option at $100. This was described as an “EXCLUSIVE LOOT CRATE BOX with lots of great TableTop Gear inside! Handpicked by Wil, this is a once in a lifetime box that will ONLY BE MADE FOR THIS CAMPAIGN.” (Capitals are from the campaign text)
Margaret Hodge, MP and chair of the public accounts committee, makes a good case that consumer action forced Starbucks to pay tax in UK, and that the same kind of action could force Amazon’s hand.
I am plagued with unsolicited phone calls. Sometimes I think I get too angry about them, some friends say I should just ignore them; but when you receive more unwanted sales and marketing phone calls than actual valid calls from friends, family and organisations you want to hear from, you know something is wrong.
I had been playing with facebook like icons, and noticed that the Wordpress Theme I use had an update. I really like Magazine Basic, so I thought going from 2.7.9 to 3.0.0 must be a good move? Big mistake; and yes, I should have backed up, but normally a Theme upgrade is a trivial and reversable thing. Not this time.
I tried various things, numerous times, including a reboot and a complete factory reset, but it stayed perpetually searching. while my phone and tablet both were picking up satellites galore. In the end, the phone got me through the trip, using Google Navigation. This meant my (work) phone took a small hit on mobile data, but as it was a work trip anyway, that’s not an issue.
Except that has now stopped, with changes to twitter’s API policy. They want anything posted to twitter to stay with twitter, and not be exported or cross-posted to any other system. As a result the IFTTT website has had to remove all of its twitter triggers effective today.
According to the Guardian: “In 2007 Hunt signed a Commons early day motion supporting it and also argued that it was worthwhile in correspondence with a constituent who questioned his stance, which was later published.”
But, finally, I’ve decided to go cold turkey on BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme.
However, I do not understand this other anomaly. Since buying my new laptop, and realising that it is the first computer I have owned in a long time capable of playing decent games, I have been dabbling with various game demos on Steam, which is a gaming distribution platform. In particular one of the demos I have enjoyed is Hard Reset, and I have been considering buying the whole game.
This will come as news to the many people who enjoyed the area before the bulldozers came in. For example, the Eastway Cycle Circuit – a 1 mile public cycle circuit, built in the 1970s, and set in parklands, now replaced by the Velodrome. Does this look like a wasteland to you?
