The Flintstones

By | August 19th, 2012|Categories: Cartoons, Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , |

Another very old picture that I drew in MS Paint, of the kids from the Flintstones - Bam Bam and Pebbles :) The Flintstones is an animated, prime-time American television sitcom that was broadcast from September 30, 1960 to April 1, 1966 on ABC. The show was produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions. The Flintstones was about a working-class Stone Age man's life with his family and his next-door neighbor and best friend. The show's continuing popularity rested heavily on its juxtaposition of modern everyday concerns in the Stone Age setting From Wiki - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Flintstones    

Twitter galleries launched some users want disabled

By | August 23rd, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Twitter User Galleries User galleries on Twitter aggregate the images you've uploaded in your Tweets into an organized page where you can view all of your most recent images.The images included in user galleries can come from Twitter, yFrog, TwitPic, Instagram and other image sharing services supported in Twitter's details pane.Technical Limitations of User Galleries: User galleries will display up to 100 most recent images in your Tweets, in chronological order. Video thumbnails will not be included. Tweets with video links will not be included in user galleries. Images in Tweets will not be displayed if the Tweet was sent before January 1, 2010. This is how your profile page will now appear, and you won't see more pictures until you click view all, and then it looks like the screenshot above. Fantastic right?  ..... Maybe not so great, people have started to see the new Twitter user gallery on their profiles today and are asking how to remove it.  They don't like their photos being on their profile page.  Another problem that I have just discovered is that if you manually retweet or click [...]

We are seeing these words too much on Twitter at the moment - I've been hacked! Be warned - The Twitter make money fast scam hacks your account This scam or variations on the same theme is still going around Twitter, its been floating around for at least a month now so its spreading viciously.

I must say that is so easy to get sucked into clicking these things, as they are from friends and we'd all like to make a fast buck, but there is one thing to remember, if it was legit [...]

Google+ add verification badges to Celeb profiles

By | August 21st, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Google plus has finally added the ability to verify your account if you are a public figure or a celebrity - in the same way that Twitter does, so that you know if you following/circling/talking the "real thing". All you need to do to confirm the verification is roll your mouse over the tick beside the name and you will see that is is verified like I have on Dolly Parton's account above. Its happened many times on Twitter, where someone has thought they are following a celebrity, word gets out and suddenly everyone is following this fake person. Sometimes it takes a while on Twitter for celebrities to get verified I don't know if that is them not applying for it or Twitter taking a long time.  Hopefully Google won't take too long in "rolling" verification's out. Wen-Ai Yu from Google shared this information last night on her G+ account they are calling them verification badges Google are only allowing this on public figures, celebrities and people who are in a large number of circles at present, but they are working on expanding this to more [...]

Malware Email spreading fast!

By | August 18th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , |

Hitting with force in your inbox at the moment is an email regarding a speeding ticket - Traffic Ticket - that you haven't paid.   This email contains a Trojan horse, which is basically malware disguising itself as a safe program or application. A Trojan horse...  ...may allow a hacker remote access to a target computer system. Once a Trojan has been installed, the hacker may have access to the computer remotely and perform various operations, limited by user privileges on the target computer system and the design of the Trojan.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trojan_horse_(computing)Many people are reporting being caught by or receiving  this email - it is American so if you are not in America you should spot right away that something is not right but you still may be tempted to click!  Which is what they want - Trojans do not self-replicate like other viruses they are spread manually by you. Just don't open the attachment! The email appears to come from a reputable source @nyc.gov which of course is fake and is intended to frighten you into opening the attachment. Also another tell tale [...]

Facebook Phonebook – are my contact numbers on show?

By | August 11th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Here we go again .. There is some confusion on Facebook about your contact numbers from your phone showing on your Facebook profile - this has popped up again since the arrival of the new application from Facebook called "Facebook Messenger"  where you can IM people from Facebook.  (Maybe because you have to Sync your contacts to use it?) There is a viral message appearing in our feeds that says ... All the phone numbers in your phone are now published on Facebook.   This ability (contacts)  has been there since the "Facebook Phonebook" feature at least a year ago, maybe more.   We also had a similar viral message going around then which warned that it was a security threat. This can only happen apparently if you have in fact sync'd your mobile application with Facebook.  Even though I have even searched through lots of my friends to see if I can see any of their friends phone numbers - There is no option to view other peoples contacts. However! ... I can see my own contacts numbers, which include [...]

Twitter and BBM involvement in UK riots

By | August 9th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Riots that started in London have now spread to other British cities, such as Bristol, Birmingham, Liverpool, Nottingham and Manchester. It has been said that networks such as Facebook, Twitter and BBM have helped organise some of the riots.  Police say that the main culprit however is BBM; BlackBerrys Messenger service as it is/was thought that messages cannot be traced, although Blackberry have said that they will help police to trace people which is a little confusing? I am surprised that if the police felt so strongly that BBM was to blame for the start of the London Riots that it still hasn't been blocked, or shut down. Or is it now because now they have Blackberry to help track people, police want the looters to use it. I assume though that police will see from phone records of those arrested, who those people have been contacted by or contacted to arrange the meet ups, via text or BBM. I do believe that Twitter has been detrimental to the riots, but from a small minority of people,  mostly people thought they were [...]

The death of Old Twitter is upon us! #saveoldtwitter

By | August 3rd, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

  It's almost a year since Twitter announced that it was changing to a newly re-engineered Twitter.com  They said you will be able to use it as a preview for a few weeks. You'll be able to switch back and forth for a few weeks to get used to how it works. I love new things, so I eagerly rushed over to New Twitter, only to be bitterly disappointed with what I saw.  So I switched back again, I did try it a few times knowing that the time will come that Twitter will make us change. However I just didn't like New Twitter so I stuck with what I loved; Old Twitter. Armegeddon arrives  Then last night, in the dead of the night, we were informed by @twitter that Old Twitter is being dumped for New Twitter.     We  knew that it was getting closer to judgement day as the message at the top of the screen lately changed to read. I know many people that have embraced the change over and they love the new interface.  I also know [...]
