Scotty Loveless has written this great guide for those of you who have some iOS battery issues.

The first step is my favourite because it confirms my crazy suspicion since iOS 6:

Step 1: Disable Location and Background App Refresh for Facebook

Fake miniature train tracks

My usual train was cancelled tonight so I was waiting for the next one.

I have just finished the latest zelda game: A Link Between Worlds. and what a fun game it is. It has all the regular fun of Zelda but with the added nostalgia of the older top down Zelda games (it's set in the same world as A Link to the Past).

One of a great things about this game is instead of having to play for hours before you get various weapons you can rent nearly all of them very early in to the game. So instead of passing cracked rocks that you know can be broken by a certain tool you can break them right there and then. This also allows you to tackle the dungeons in whatever order you happen to get to them.

I would definitely recommend this one.

I have actually updated this website after a number of years with the same design.

As you can see the blog is no-longer on Tumblr (although I think I might keep posting there too so people can use the Tumblr dashboard. When Kottke.org was redesigned he created a Tumblr blog where he cross-posts everything and found it to be a good thing). I am running the blog on a Ghost installation. I have found Ghost to be really easy to design for; it only has three template pages at the moment that you need in your theme.

I will try to write some posts this year too!

Everyone has the same advantage. It's just that they get annoyed when they can't use it effectively.

A yo-yo in space, what is not to like.

Extra points for calling it "Replicator".

On my Mac the 'Open With' list in the context menu keeps filling up with duplicate entries for apps. Not really sure why it keeps happening but I keep forgetting how to clean it and then not being able to find the solution again.

So this is how to do it:

Enter this into terminal (this is on 10.8 the file path might be different on other version of OS X):

/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user

I have also created an alias for this in my bash profile:

alias cleanopenwith='/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user'
