Testing: Live Writer

I’m trying out Windows Live Writer, again. I think it may be easier to use than the web interface WordPress has.

Here is a video from vimeo.

And now a photo I took.

How to: Keep a tidy desk

clean deskA clean desk can really help your workflow. Not only does it mean you have space, but the lack of clutter means you have less distractions, and in my case less stress from looking at all the mess. I find it very difficult to maintain a clean desk, I always leave stuff on there to fiddle with later or that I think might be useful, but never get round to using it so the mess just builds up.

A simple method I learn for helping keep your desk clean is actually pretty obvious, and only requires discipline. The rule is this: if you get something out, always put it away again when you’re done.

Basically if it doesn’t permanently belong on your desk, it shouldn’t be ther unless you’re actually using it. This means no build up, no mess and no stress.

How to: Take a screenshot on an iPhone

iPhone ScreenshotExtremely easy. Press both the home button and the lock button at the same time. Your screen will flash white. Go into the images app and you’ll find it there. You can email it, mms it, put it on your blog, whatever. I imagine you can do the same with an iPad.

How to: Find a good web host

Easy! Just ask me! Seriously, my web hosting is with xilo.net and it’s brilliant. I used to host with dreamhost, which was ok with their “unlimited” space and bandwidth, but it was horribly slow when running a blog using mysql. So i went with xilo after reading some review, and thinks it’s fantastic. If you peruse around this site a bit you’ll get an idea of the speed. Sure they don’t have “unlimited” plans, but they don’t oversell, so your site is always going to be lightning.


How to: Show every song on Spotify

Have you ever wanted to know how many songs there are on Spotify? Ever wanted to know what the most popular song is? Well now you can.

Simply search for year:0-3001, and you’ll get every song between those years, which turns out is every song ever! At the time of writing this there are 6830300 songs, and the most popular one is Fireflies by Owl City. I fucking hate that song.

Enjoy.

How to: Find images of a specific size in google

There are quite a few nifty commands that you can use with google’s amazing search engine. One that I use quite often is the imagesize command.

Say you want to find a new desktop background for your computer. It you’re like me you don’t want the picture to be all stretched and poor quality in order to fill the screen. In google image search you can you the command imagesize:followed by the dimensions you want to use.

For example my monitor’s resolution is1680x1050, so I would use imagesize:1680×1050. Remember no spaces! This only gives resulting images of that resolution. So if i google background imagesize:1680×1050 then i get a load of background of the right resolution.

Magnifico!

How to: Get passwords for usenet files

So, spent ages downloading some big files off usenet? Extracted it only to find another bunch of rar’s only with a password? Pretty fucking annoying isn’t it?
Well apparently it has pissed off someone else as well and he has created a database of passwords for the files. You can find it here.

Simply search for the name of the file you downloaded and hopefully someone who knows the password will have posted it. If you figure out the password to something you downloaded, you can submit it to the database as well!

If you don’t want to download any more passworded files you can use another section of the same guys website. The password free section lists files that people have downloaded and found to not have a password protecting them. Saving you a shit ton of time, and also your santity.
