I have been struggling for the last half an hour trying to embedd a youtube video into my girlfriend’s wordpress blog. In the end I found the easiest way was to simply turn off the default WYSIWYG editor (Options > Writing > Formatting > untick “use visual rich editor by default”), and then you can just paste the object code straight from youtube. If you don’t want to turn this off then take a look at Embed How to get YouTube working with the WP2 WYSIWYG Editor.
This flash game, Phosphor, is mightily impressive. It is a 3D first person shooter with graphics on par with that of the original Quake. It shows you just how far we have come in the last few years that we can now embedd games like this in a web page!
Blogs aren’t just for guys, girls too have embraced them since their conception, and here is a new girl-focused blog called The New Pink that deals with everything from the latest fashion trends to diet advice and gadget reviews.
I just got a new 3G phone from Orange, and wanted to see the nearest 3G masts near my home, but their website navigation is a bit of a nightmare, so if you were looking for the coverage map then you will find it on this UK mobile coverage page.
If you get an “ERROR 1030: Got error 28 from table handler” error from MySQL then check the size of your /tmp/ mount. MySQL uses the /tmp directory for quite a lot of things (creating temporary tables, repairing tables, optimizing tables etc..) and so if this is too small you might find yourself getting the error 28 a fair bit.
I signed up to the Picasa Web Albums last week, and have been testing it out. So far, I am really impressed. See for yourself with these pictures of my back garden. It will be good when they add video support (and tie it in with Google video), in fact I think it will start to pose a serious threat to YouTube and Flickr then.
