Can you please tell me where to buy a replacement of the top part? My lamp fell and the part you struggled to get out is broken. I need a replacement, but have no idea where to find them. I have searched for hours on the internet and your article is the first thing that has what i am looking for :)

Comment on A quick custom plugin to import redirections into Safe Redirect Manager by Josh Winn

This is awesome! Saved me a ton of manual labor. Because of my server situation, I was unable to just add my 1000+ redirects to an .htaccess file. This worked perfectly. I'd recommend doing in batches, as I got a 502 error after about 600 had processed. The pull request you made is part of the plugin now. Looks like an importer is coming at some point.

Your plugin ignores the limit, but the message will be visible in the admin area. Filter code:

Hi Simon, Thanks for these instructions. Managed to the battery out of the alarm without any problems. Speaking to Kidde Safe in the UK the unit is obsolete and you need a new bass plate for a new alarm. Thanks Again.

[…] I use the Memento app on my iPhone as my diary, it integrates tweets, Instagram photo’s and blog posts, and Moves location data into a really nice diary interface, with excellent search.  Clearly I needed my diary entries to be integrated too, so I needed an RSS feed for just the diary category.  To do this I used a code snippet that I added to the sites Functions.PHP file, as described in this post.

Which config file would one edit to make OS X broadcast as a different machine? i.e. a Mac Mini to be seen a "Rack Mac" by other Macs on the network? I can't find info on that anywhere! Many thanks in advance for anyone who knows!
