If nothing more then to help this girl out, I will share this video. I believe that her willingness to stand in front of what I consider greedy self serving politicians speaks volumes to this topic. You really have to stop and think why a 15 year old can put things into perspective while the people we elected can’t get out of their own way.
Without me having to create another fucking online account I would love to know why the new Jetpack 2.2 for WordPress WILL NOT UPDATE!! I have been searching for an hour now and unless I want to Join another site or forum I cannot find any information why this update service is not working. Tried the automatic update and it brought my sites down!
This is just Sloppy!
if you are having problems updating your Jetpack using the automated option within your WordPress site try freeing up some bandwidth if you are performing this process from home. Make sure you are getting the best internet speeds you can. Try updating it again. If anything like the issue I was having you might be in the clear. GOOD LUCK!
Yesterday many received the following e-mail from adBrite.
Dear adBrite Publisher,
Over the last few weeks, adBrite and its management have been evaluating the go-forward plan for the business. Given market conditions and certain financial liabilities, in working with our lenders, we have decided to cease operations on Feb 1, 2013.
This is a difficult decision for all of us at adBrite. However, after much deliberation this seems to be the best course of action despite the impact it will have on all the employees, clients and partners who helped build this business. There will be a team in place as needed to assist with winding down.
Thank you for being part of the adBrite community.
The adBrite Team
with adBrite closing down their operations publishers all over the web are scrambling to fine new advertising.
Who will you switch to?
If you are reading this today (January 11th, 2013) then you are one of the lucky ones! For most of today Godaddy’s Service has not been performing. Geek-Weekly and my other sites are loading (when they load) at a crawl.
At the moment Godaddy is experiencing a massive outage that is affecting hosted sites, services and mail for many of their users.
UPDATE: It looks like Godaddy is getting back to their standard speeds so that tells us that the challenges they were having with their servers is just about under control. As of 5:20PM EST on 1/12/13 they still had the alert on their support page.
Well here we are at the end of another year and while many people are recapping the top tech for 2012 we here at Geek Weekly would like to revisit the top tech fail’s. No particular order…
What is more delicious then a new Apple product? I will tell you, it’s a new product and a new app with the promise of all the Apple goodness. Good job Apple! Your cult like followers are still driving around looking for their destination but if you ask them there is nothing wrong. I would like to know where your brain wash app is saved. All that aside it’s good for the big dogs to take a hit from time to time. Let’s face it no one is perfect.
The evolution of competitive devices is starting to become apparent, so much so the future of the PlayStation Vita is concerning, with the failure of this handheld being blamed on iPad and Android apps among others. There’s no denying the PS Vita is a cool gaming device, but other avenues have also been producing some great approachable applications on other platforms, giving us cause to question how Sony’s handheld will fair as technology increases throughout the gaming world.
We are under the impression that the PS Vita is not fairing too well in Japan, in fact, it seems to be dying in this territory, and this could have a knock on effect in other countries. Highlighting the Vita’s poor reception Forbes report on how the PSP has sold 14 million units in Japan with 17m in the US, but the performance of the Vita has been questioned in Japan because the unit volume was a shocking 4,021 by the week ending on the 11th of November. The PSP sold 12,000 units during the same week, so the Vita has failed to dislodge the old one, which wasn’t forecasted.
The Christmas special is following Moffat’s tradition of adapting Christmassy stories, and this time it’s The Snowman. As with the previous two Christmas specials, it won’t be a truly faithful adaptation, and obviously has a science-fiction twist to it.
The Snowman (or possibly Snowmen) isn’t/aren’t actually made out of regular snow. They’re made out of alien snow. Living snow with its own consciousness. And the snow is very, very hungry. Packed together into a humanoid figure, it’s deadly. Also, Vastra is narrating the episode.
