Did you know: Facebook short url’s already kinda exist

As a side note: facebook shorturls, or at least abreviated urls exist. We all know about fb.me, but fb.com works too…. Random occurance: Was saving down facebook data into a database from the graph api, wanted to save the urls in a mixed url table but didn’t want to bother saving the whole http://www.facebook.com every […]

MySQL datetime examples – first/last day of the year – dates and unix-times

For some reason I had an abstract memory of SQL SERVER 2000, timestamps and pain. Who knows why. Perhaps its a faulty memory. lol. Anyhow working with timestamps in MySQL/MSSQL these days is nothing short of simple. With MySQL Workbench free its ridiculous how far the barrier of entry for database design has come, its […]

Audi A4 B6 (2002-200?) Fix for Airconditioning stuck on ECON mode (Replace High-Pressure Sensor/Thrust sensor G65)

I am no mechanic, not even close, but after a spout of successful self fixes on my Audi I thought I would post this, purely because when I was going about trying to fix this particular issue myself there was about 100 slightly different versions of solutions on google, of which a lot give misleading/confused […]

Hackers wrecking your shared host account? Check your Website Portfolio Integrity

10 days of perpetual issues with hackers. 10 DAYS. 100+ sites bombed randomly between every 5 minutes and 5 hours and that’s only after proper detection, who knows how far it had gone before.
