Friday 7th links n things

Off to Edinburgh tomorrow to meet up with some developers & domainers, should be fun.

The lawn sign based business is a great article where the author investigated the origin of multiple dating lawn signs, an enjoyable read.

Humour: This video is old, unrelated but pretty damn funny.

The Pirate Bay has always filled a gap that Hollywood seems reluctant to fill, rather than withhold and sue they could embrace the online world, The Pirate Bay broke a new record recently with 22 million users. sells for $34,800 crickey that seems a tad expensive.

Make sure when you download your versions of WordPress you do it only from the official site, seems to be some trojanised copies being offered for download which would make for a bad start to your new site. I presume that should also apply to downloading plugins as well.

Game: Build the highest tower possible with 99 bricks, tetris with a spin.

  1. Hmm, hadnt heard of that, something to look out for although I get my WordPress installations directly from my host via Fantastico and then use the WordPress upgrade plugin to keep it upto date.

    An important warning!

  2. That domain name is probably over-priced!

  3. I love British humour. Although, I’m really not sure if this is real or not!

  4. The domain is a little bit overpriced in my opinion. Doesn’t look that much worthy.

  5. I loved the video. Quite funny. Got my day started with a good giggle. 😉

  6. Oooh have fun in Edinburgh. I just finished a chapter in “A Cooks Tour” by Anthony Bourdain all about Edinburgh and it sounds like an awesome place. Bring back haggis! 🙂

  7. What a joke that freeporntube sale is, fair play to the seller is all I can say!

  8. I really liked to story about the lawn signs, very interesting investigative work. I had seen the signs when I was in the US on holiday a few months ago, they are everywhere. Obviously a lucrative business.

  9. Who would have thought that such a simple looking sign could be at the forefront of a really interesting story – “lawn sign based business”. I love the fact that they stole the sign, as if it was for evidence. Excellent detective skills though!


  10. LOL great video Scott, I hadn’t seen it before. They should do a new one about pirates! 🙂

    Cheers, Jon

  11. Just been on Piratebay this afternoon.
    Almost 23 million users now! So another 1million users in less than three months.
    All this negative publicity that is thrown at them by the big corporates – just makes them stronger, the harder they try and close them, the more popular they become – love it!
