In most areas of the Philippines, as well as many other places in Asia and Europe, UHT milk is the only milk you can buy from the stores. UHT stands for either “ultra-high temperature processing” or “ultra-heat treatment”, whichever you prefer.
Someone invented UHT milk in the 1960s. It became generally available in the 1970s and I consumed my first “box” of UHT milk in 1983. (more…)RT Cunningham - August 8, 2017
iflix is an Asian streaming service, like Netflix in the Philippines, but less expensive.
I wrote about Netflix back in March. I sampled it, off and on, for the trial month and then canceled. There weren’t enough choices to support the amount they wanted from me every month. The amount of movies and television series available was far less than that of Netflix in the United States.
I signed up for a trial subscription to iflix today. I’ll probably keep this streaming service and in a moment, you’ll understand why. (more…)RT Cunningham - August 7, 2017
I just deleted seven articles about creating a static site generator with WordPress. They were outdated and updating them was something I didn’t care to do.
I discovered a WordPress static site service called HardyPress. While the service doesn’t target people like me, it’s still something I may consider in the future. That is, if I’m still doing this in the future. (more…)
This website is a static website built with WordPress. I didn’t set it up with pagination in mind. That’s going to change as soon I figure out how to do it.
My home page is a single list of 10 article introductions. My author, category and tag pages are complete lists of articles, but only the titles. When I add pagination, each of them will have links near the bottom of each page, pointing to the pages before and after the one you’re on. (more…)RT Cunningham - August 6, 2017
If you’re a Windows or Mac user and you want to learn Linux, it’s easy to do so. You don’t even have to install any Linux distribution on your computer and mess up what you already have going.
There are three things you need and you only need to install one. That one is the software you need to create a bootable USB flash drive. A USB flash drive of 16 gigabytes or less is inexpensive compared to buying and ruining blank CDs.
You need a USB flash drive of eight gigabytes or more and the ISO file of almost any Linux distribution. Which distribution doesn’t really matter. I recommend using one based on Debian, but not Debian itself. (more…)RT Cunningham - August 2, 2017
I didn’t have to read this article to know the most popular sport in the Philippines is basketball. It’s so popular, in fact, that it’s annoying to some people (like me) who aren’t into it.
I can’t play any kind of sport anymore because of injuries but even if I could, I wouldn’t play basketball. It’s not a contact sport, like American football, but every time I played it (when I was much, much younger) I got hurt. I was a lousy player anyway because I wasn’t aggressive enough to enjoy playing. (more…)
I’m familiar with warehouse club stores even if I don’t want to be. My first experience with one was unusual, to say the least.
My first 13 years of life were in a small city. The biggest grocery store was Safeway and I can’t even remember the name of the biggest department store. There was only one franchise store in the city that I can remember, Dairy Queen. And it only served ice cream. Times have definitely changed. (more…)RT Cunningham - August 1, 2017
WordPress functions are easy to add to a WordPress theme. A function to massage the content for a post, page or feed is easy to create. One becomes many, once you see how powerful it is.
More than a decade after I used WordPress for the first time, I’m still discovering things. I knew about “the_content” filter for posts and pages, but I only guessed about the others. (more…)RT Cunningham - August 1, 2017
My wife, Josie, bought our electric stove shortly after we moved into our new house in 2006. It was long before we added the extension to the back of our house. The right half of that extension became our dirty kitchen.
I don’t remember dates (or even years) very well. I can remember events and place them between certain years, but that’s about it. The electric stove still sits between cabinets and cupboards in our original kitchen, inside the house, but we rarely use it.
We should replace it. I’ll explain why. (more…)
There are multiples ways to remove an image from your content. It mainly depends on where your content is located – where it is on your website. I’ll use my home page and the image on this page as an example, but first…
If you search Google for “remove image from content”, you’ll get a bunch of results but only first few really matter. The examples they give, while they work, aren’t the best ways to go about it. (more…)« Previous 1 2 3 4 … 59 Next »
