I Hate Spam

Nobody likes spam email or junk mail, but at least junk mail is a little easier to manage. If it’s random crap about enlarging your penis or using Viagra (I visited those sites once by accident- I swear) it’s almost acceptable because those trying to sell you such products know that in all likelihood, you’d be too embarrassed to buy those items via mainstream outlets so they have nothing to lose. They’ve literally got a captive audience by the short and curlies.

Taking the Wizz

I had to book some airline tickets for later on in the year and like most other people, I wanted to pay as little for them as possible.

There’s several airlines to choose from; each offering different routes and vastly different prices, dependant entirely upon what you want from your flight. I went for the ‘no-frills’ approach and booked my tickets with Wizz Air. Continue reading “Taking the Wizz”

Man of Mystery

An unknown man keeps sending photos of himself to an equally unknown recipient, using a non-existent email address from one of the domain names registered to me. I’m talking hundreds of photos at a time, and none of them are particularly interesting or unusual. The peculiar things about it are the sheer amount of photos and the fake  email address the sender has chosen to use in order to send his photos.

Website Overhaul

The Ninja Hedgehog website was making me feel antsy and I came to the conclusion that it was too cluttered.

As a result, I’ve simplified it so it’s not longer ‘messy’.

I’ve also introduced a new short URL service, so shortlinks to articles will be n00.uk/shortURL.

Hopefully you don’t mind these changes.

If you do, then tough shit I guess.

Warm Apple

I’ve written before about how I’m an iPhone fan. What I like best about iPhones is that they only slow down when they’re really old and that the build quality is second to none. The only flaw in the iPhone design is that you can’t easily change the battery, which is a shame because after 2 years, the battery level of my iPhone started to drop by 3% at a time right before my very eyes. I’d blink and my battery would go from 23% to a black screen with a picture of a cable on it. Facebook was a real battery killer, with any video application coming in a close second, making simultaneous online socialising and porn-watching something which I had to save until the end of the day, because no one wants a dead phone before they get home from work, do they?

Short URL Issues

Currently, the Ninja Hedgehog short URL service (niho.me/shortURL) isn’t working and I have absolutely no idea why. I’ve tried a fresh install of the necessary code from the original service I used and the code of alternative services but I’m still getting the same errors. This is a major inconvenience. I’m currently waiting for my web host to look into the matter and come back to me, but I’m willing to bet that they tell me there’s nothing wrong on their side…

Watch Out!

The thing about Wish is that it’s slightly addictive. You know damn well it’s cheap shit which is primarily sold on there, but you can’t help thinking your next purchase will be a good one; that you’ll get good quality at a good price on that one glorious occasion. Surely it’s possible that some of the items for sale at such ridiculously low prices are of superior build quality and will last more than a week? Statistically, it’s got to happen at least once, right?

Manchester Bombing

As we all know, there was a terrorist attack at Manchester Arena last night  at the end of an Ariana Grande concert.

At approximately 22:30, a suicide bomber detonated a nail bomb, injuring dozens and at the time of writing this, killing twenty-two innocent people; some of whom were just children. Islamic State have taken responsibility for this attack. I was going to refer to this as a cowardly attack, but when isn’t detonating a bomb as part of a calculated attack against hundreds or thousands of people not cowardly?
