In The Future, There Will Be Only Garages

This morning I discovered, whilst laying in bed listening to Rob Da Bank on Radio1, a term for a genre of music which has probably been around for ages (especially given that it seems to encapsulate Burial in some way): future garage. It’s like, garage, man, but it’s in the future! Or, the present, as…

Facebook’s “Most Recent” – New Method

Seems Facebook have removed (or, given the distributed nature of their codebase, are in the process of removing) the “sk=top” kludge that powered my old script. So, if that’s stopped working for you, here’s the replacement method. It’s been replaced with a new command, so here’s a new script to default the logo and home…

Everything’s nice and clear and tidy (except for that opening sentence, but ho hum). Internet Exploder has other ideas, of course!…

Facebook, It’s Time I Killed Your Little Cat

I’ve been “reliably” informed by a buddy of mine that there is an actual process to get things a little more back to normal on ye olde Facebook News Feed. I’m in the process of trying it, so can’t verify, but thought I’d post it up anyway, because of stuff. Go to Account Settings, then…

Facebook, It’s Time We Had A Little Chat

You see, I have just arrived home to discover the latest changes to what you think I want to see in my news feed, Facebook. As is probably implied by the fact I’ve written a blog post entitled as this is, I’m not exactly enamoured with the changes. The core problem is basically this: Your…
