Gloucester Road – Year 6

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 16:09:59 +0000

(Late again!) It has been a bit of a tough year as can be seen from the statistics. Discrete businesses are up from 380 to 385 as retailers downsize and vacancies are up from 24 to 29. Other than that there is not a lot to report. The mix remains roughly the same. Again I […]

Gloucester Road – Year 5

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 11:17:37 +0000

Sorry, a bit late this year. No change in the number of empty properties this time, but there has been quite a bit of movement with businesses moving around and a few that have come and gone. Charity shops and Takeaways are both down, Restaurants and Estate Agents are both up a little in each […]

SMS Spam+

Mon, 25 May 2015 16:55:23 +0000

On May 7 I had a spam text message from “Free Msg” which just consisted of a web link so I ignored it. On May 9 a very similar one came from a short-code number (82999). When an identical one arrived a week later it was starting to get annoying—but not as annoying as discovering […]

iPhone move from Orange(EE) to Giff-Gaff

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 16:09:44 +0000

This should all be straight forward: Unlock phone from Orange 30 days in advance, notify Orange/EE that you wish to terminate the service or transfer the number. Sign up to Giff-Gaff and activate their SIM Put in the Giff-Gaff SIM Use Phone Get the number transferred Things are never as easy as that. These instructions […]

Superscript for WordPress

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 22:10:52 +0000

When editing WordPress pages or posts there are a number of buttons in the editor to make things a bit easier; Things like Bold, Italic, Blockquote etc. There are in fact a lot more built into the editor than are actually shown in the menu bars. I rather like having superscripts and subscripts come out […]

Java 8 problems

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 14:23:10 +0000

There don’t seem to be many reports of this but Java 8 was a significant change from v7 and I have found at least two programs that no longer work. It is particularly difficult as the programs concerned are not actively maintained any more so there is little chance of getting the developers to make […]

WordPress Exploit Scanner

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 09:11:32 +0000

The WordPress Exploit Scanner was a very useful WordPress plugin that would check your site for interference by hackers. It does this by checking the hashes of all the modules against what they were when the code was published and also looks (as best as it can) at your posts and comments database looking for […]

Iraq Hoaxes

Tue, 02 Sep 2014 09:19:26 +0000

The following is a HOAX. URGENT PRAYER REQUEST Christians in Northern Iraq are calling for urgent prayer backing as they’re in great danger – serious threat of beheading of all Christians in that area in a few hours. Please forward this request to your praying friends on behalf of our brothers and sisters in Christ” […]

Gloucester Road – Year 4

Wed, 25 Jun 2014 14:25:43 +0000

Well, I may have been a bit slack posting stuff to this blog recently, but I have managed to keep up my survey of shops on the Gloucester Road for a fourth year running (use the search to find previous reports). The good news this year is that there are fewer empty shops, we are […]

Not all USB chargers are made equal

Sat, 26 Apr 2014 15:35:56 +0000

Well, we sort of knew that. Some devices like more power to charge faster so their dedicated chargers will give more power—the iPad is a case in point. But you would think they they would all provide up to their rated power to any device that asked for it. No. All figures are in amps […]
