If there was one thing, one thing, keeping humanity safe from total enslavement to the grind of World of Warcraft, it was the fact that you have to pay to play the game for longer than a couple of weeks. Well, now we’re all doomed. Blizzard is replacing its 14-day WoW trial with a so-called Starter Edition of the massively multiplayer life usurper, which lets you reach level 20 without shelling out a penny. Of course, like any good gateway drug, this freebie is capped at the thoroughly insufficient 20 number and is sure to agitate folks into buying the full product. One small step for a software company, one giant leap forward for global obesity rates.
OK… perhaps this just happened to me. I was working on some new posts today and ran into a situation where the built in lightbox or shadowbox plug-in would not work. I started searching the web for an answer. Hours of searching and trying other plug-ins I had NO luck and was just about to give up. Then I figured that just changing the properties on each image was all I had to do… Thank you Triggabytes.com for some help…
So if you go to the image and edit the properties you might see that there image link references an “attachment” but that is where the problem is. Click on “link to image” to fix an excising image. If you are adding a new Post or new Image to a post your options a little different. For the Link URL you want to click on the File URL button. This will link the image correctly so that the lightbox works correctly.
I still do not know why this happened or why i need to edit anything when I never had to before.
Bungie may have divorced itself from the Microsoft family, but there’s no chance in hell that Microsoft would let its biggest gaming property just fizzle out. No, the reins have been given to 343 Industries, a games studio owned by Microsoft, and that means that there will be a Halo 4 hitting the Xbox 360 during the holiday season of 2012.
Kwame Opam — If and how Apple fixes the notification system tomorrow is anyone’s guess. But the above image, courtesy of TechCrunch, seems to suggest something akin to accessing an active phone call from the springboard will be the solution.
Any guess beyond that is an even bigger speculation. This doesn’t look as great as we hoped notifications would look like, but it does make sense. Obviously, this could still totally be ‘shopped (who knows, the 11:54 PM on June 5th is in the future but the 23 degrees Celsius would mean it’s a Euro phone) but MobileNotifier, the popular jailbreak app designed by recent Apple hire Peter Hajas, does comes to mind. At the very least, we’ll find out more tomorrow.
Well, this was inevitable. After Sprint’s website snafu outing its Android 2.3 intentions for the EVO 4G, we’ve received evidence that points to June 6th as its release date. Better yet, if you’re willing to manually check for its availability, you might even find a happy surprise this Friday. In addition to Gingerbread, users will find SMS and Gmail fixes, along with a tweak to the phone’s power management software. Hopefully you’ve got WiMAX, because this update is coming over-the-air. Should everything go according to plan, users will have less than a week to say goodbye to Froyo. It’s a trusty companion for sure, but that spicy aroma is quite enticing. Hit the break for some corroborating clues.
