Moving to 7-zip.

7-Zip conversion is now in effect.

We have decided to proceed with the move converting any archived files into the 7-zip or .7z extension. The reason for this move is to help with getting users the files they need faster. This blog is ready to try new technologies to make communication faster. Thus, 7-zip will be a welcome addition. As an added side-effect transitioning to 7-zip will help with the backups and overall optimization.

Plugin review: Yoast needs to stop linking itself.

Every piece of information is important. Yoast Disagrees!

I decided to write up a quick article/review about one of the plugins that we use here called “Yoast” or as the plugin delicately puts it “WordPress SEO”. In an arrogant fashion that there is only one SEO package out there and that’s it. For those who do not know what this plugin does. Yoast attempts to understand how search engines work. Yoast then passes down automated knowledge to the WordPress blogger on how to write up their documentation to make it more machine likable. Because of machines like your blog entry then you might stand a chance at a human actually seeing it. Crap, we’re living in a rather grim state of affairs but it’s true!

Can you use the chinesse Xbox receiver on an Xbox One controller.

To which the quick answer is: No

If that’s what you’re looking for. Then we’re glad to have answered your question. However, there is more to the explanation and why it may or may not really be an issue anymore. Read on if you want yo know more.

Zero delay USB Joystick Encoder.

This entry isn’t as much of a tutorial but an over view of a device that has been selling on the net known as a “Zero delay USB Joystick Encoder.” It goes by other names such as a a “DIY Arcade replacement controller” or a “DIY Joystick control board.” Either way you slice it these boards are coming from China anywhere from as low as Three U.S. Dollars to as much as ten U.S. dollar depending on the features you want such as wiring harness and USB cables.

DMOZ left and thanked us all for the fish!

The Directory Mozilla Open Source project ( DMOZ ) is now closed!

Standing tall for more then 19 years now the DMOZ has closed its doors to the internet. Source is WHOIS from Janurary 2nd of 1999; To today where the announcement was made on their site March 17th, 2016. Also, there was two years where DMOZ/ODP was known as “Gnuhoo” which totals its 19 year existence. This news was discovered to us thanks to our broken links detection tool . WordPress users such as ourselves have this plugin installed. This hit us personally hard because of what the Open Directory Project stood for. Also the simple fact that after many of years that this very site was listed in the /People/Furry/Personal Pages catagory of their site.

Google AMP does not understand what AMP means.

The greatest enemy of AMP is the company that designed it.

The fast universe of WordPress bloggers installed the AMP plugin as another means of making it easier for people to find their content online. But is AMP itself really serving its purpose? Or is it self-serving as a way of extracting content from individual bloggers? Perhaps there’s something more nefarious behind this simple protocol. Read on if you want to know more.

In 2017 S will skateboard again.

Picking up the skateboard after almost 20 years is hard!

I should throw in the casual disclaimer that this is going to be a more personal blog about skateboarding. Here it is.

Perhaps it’s a state of mid-life crisis that has caused me in 2017 that it’s a good idea to pick up a skateboard again. As a kid the ability to get a good quality skateboard was a little out of reach and when I had a job I was working so much that skateboarding was just about the last thing on our minds. Physically we were not the dainty little flower back then and with years of being a work-a-holic and being stationary it didn’t help matters much. However, despite not having the greatest board in the world I was in considerably better health then I am in now. Out of just the sake of excersize. Skateboarding was the only “Sport” in a sense that I truly liked. It didn’t have many rules outside of the simple ones.

Purple Bed has finally arrived!

A long time ago in Purple Bed ordering.

Once upon a time a giant Binturong decided to place an online order for a purple bed. This was sold to the creature by a princess which has a bizarre fetish with slamming eggs into her bed with giant sheets of glass. There was no need to kink-shame as this is the year of progress, love, and cyborg terror-bots. This Binturong bought a new bed because sleeping on a futon was all well and fine in his young college years. However, it is time to move on to better things. Sleep is important for everyone you know!
