Slegnor's Random Gaming (@Slegnor) on How to use ZoomFloppy

Tuesday, 12th March 2019

For some reason when I use CBM Transfer to create a new Dnn, i enter the d64 name and add a label & ID and then.....nothing. No d64 gets created. Conversely, if I create a d64 with D64Editor, select that in the disk image of CBM Transfer and select a PRG to copy, hit the green arrow, it shows me the copy progress aaaaand, nothing. Cant figure it out, I can read the disk contents after setting up the ZoomFloppy but just cant get it over to a d64

For anyone who finds this post -> remove stuff from admin bar: function remove_admin_bar_links() { if (!current_user_can('edit_posts')) { global $wp_admin_bar; $wp_admin_bar->remove_menu('dashboard'); // Remove the dashboard link $wp_admin_bar->remove_menu('site-name'); // Remove the site name link $wp_admin_bar->remove_menu('wp-logo'); // Remove the WordPress logo $wp_admin_bar->remove_menu('about'); // Remove the about WordPress link $wp_admin_bar->remove_menu('wporg'); // Remove the WordPress.org link $wp_admin_bar->remove_menu('documentation'); // Remove the WordPress documentation link $wp_admin_bar->remove_menu('support-forums'); // Remove the support forums link $wp_admin_bar->remove_menu('feedback'); // Remove the feedback link $wp_admin_bar->remove_menu('updates'); // Remove the updates link $wp_admin_bar->remove_menu('comments'); // Remove the comments link $wp_admin_bar->remove_menu('new-content'); // Remove the content link $wp_admin_bar->remove_menu('my-account'); // Remove the user details tab } } add_action( 'wp_before_admin_bar_render', 'remove_admin_bar_links' );

Jay Versluis on What is my YouTube Channel URL

Sunday, 10th March 2019

Tricky one. I have one Brand account and one personal account, and the URL change option seems to be the same on either one. Perhaps Google need a bit of time, give it four weeks and try again. I’ve heard that some eligibility perks will only kick in after 30 days.

S_h_a_r_k_93 on What is my YouTube Channel URL

Sunday, 10th March 2019

The thing is, I do NOT have any Custom URL yet! I have just passed the eligibility requirements and I was looking to claim it for the first time, to get rid of my YouTube Legacy Username for good (Username93ful, yeah ... ). But this is what I still see in the Custom URL menu despite having changed my name on Februrary 27th (just the name, I left the surname blank) on Google+ to "Shark93": https://i.imgur.com/eAA3gn4.png Perhaps I should try and change it to "Shark" (name) "93" (surname) and see if that makes YouTube approve my display name as a viable pick for the Custom URL, but I don't think it will kick in anyways ... Secondly I do not feel like moving to a Brand Account because A) I would lose all my comments and I have several of them pinned under many YouTube videos of other content creators, B) at the end of the day it's my personal YouTube Channel, it's not really a brand ... For example refer to this Reddit post where you can see it all, Legacy Username, Channel ID and Custom URL based on the current display name. That's what I'd like YouTube to approve for me. :-/ (the display name "Shark93" or "Shark 93" to have a Custom URL like that ... ). Post: https://www.reddit.com/r/youtube/comments/3gwhfd/can_you_remove_your_legacy_url/cu2599s/ Are you positive that if I move my existing Channel to a new Brand Account, the Custom URL menu will change and it will take into consideration the Brand Account's new display name instead of my Legacy Username? :( Thank you for the reply!

Great, I'm glad I could help :-) Getting this box going felt a little bit like pulling teeth I must admit...

You are my hero, I was to point of tears trying to get the audio correct. You my friend are a gentleman and a scholar! I will try this when I get home.

Jay Versluis on What is my YouTube Channel URL

Thursday, 28th February 2019

Gosh, that's just YouTube being difficult again :-) I've had a similar issue, I've changed my user name and wanted my URL to match, but I already had claimed a custom URL. So what I ended up doing was to change my display name first, then relinquish my custom URL to claim a new one. That was cumbersome, had to go over to my Google's Brand profile or some such. Once the new display name was in place, I could claim a new custom URL, which would now no longer suggest the old user name. Perhaps, with your new display name in place, leave it for a few days, then relinquish your old custom URL and claim a new one. That's all I can think of. Good luck!

Jay Versluis on How to prevent direct file access in your wp-content directory

Thursday, 28th February 2019

That's strange. Try changing "PDF" to "pdf" or vice versa in the code, or add both capitalised and non-capitalised versions, maybe it'll help. I didn't think this was important and haven't experienced your issue, just thinking out loud.

Jay Versluis on The RUIPU 121 – 24000 mAh LED Power Bank Review

Thursday, 28th February 2019

Hmmm... mine starts as soon as I plugged it into a USB port. On the power bank, I *sometimes* have to press the button. Have you tried it in your computer's USB port? If it doesn't work there, it might be faulty. Drop RUIPU support a line, they might be able to help.

S_h_a_r_k_93 on What is my YouTube Channel URL

Thursday, 28th February 2019

Hello, I was wondering what were the requirements that YouTube uses when evaluating your "display name" as a viable option for your approved Custom URLs ... in other words, I am eligible to claim my custom URL but YouTube is picking my legacy username only for the choices in the Custom URL menu and nothing else (like my display name) ... and my legacy username is exactly what I am trying to get rid of. :D Much appreciated!

Jay Versluis on How to run Commodore BASIC as a Scripting Language on macOS

Monday, 14th January 2019

Oh wow, thank you for the tip - that's a great way to use modern text editors for BASIC input. I love the idea of TEM lines that don't make it into the C64 memory, yet they're still part of the text file. How exciting, thank you for sharing :-)

GDS on How to run Commodore BASIC as a Scripting Language on macOS

Monday, 14th January 2019

My favorite use is to edit large BASIC files as plain text, "myprog.bas" with some empty lines for section separation and formatting, and lots of REMs for annotation, which don't even need to have line numbers. (The REM lines, that is. Program lines still need numbers) Then, at the end of the file I add a line SAVE "MYPROG" (no line number) In my Mac Terminal, I type "cbmbasic myprog.bas" and the file "MYPROG" appears in my MacOS directory, but it is a Commodore file. I can then open that file on an emulator or on a real C64 using my Ultimate II+ cartridge.

Jay Versluis on How to install MySQL on Mac OS X El Capitan

Thursday, 20th December 2018

Sounds like you may have installed mysql rather than the mysql-server package. Could also be that MySQL is installed properly, but it's not actually running. You can use the Activity Monitor to search for the process, see if it's running. These two links may be helpful: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/11657829/ and https://stackoverflow.com/questions/15450091/.

hi, thanks for the write-up. I am getting an error 2002: HY000: can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2) when I type in mysql. However, mysql --version and --help works. mysqladmin gives me the long list like you mentioned. I tried some solutions posted on stackoverflow like chown and ln -s but I am still getting the error. I reinstalled as well, but no luck. I can't find a working solution.

Jay Versluis on How to fix the Visual Editor or Text Editor in WordPress when it’s not working

Monday, 17th December 2018

Great news - I'm so glad it worked for you too! I suspect that under the hood, the Classic Editor (as it's now known) has quite a few bugs. Maybe that's why the WordPress team were so keen on removing TinyMCE. Still, for me, Gutenberg is not what I need and I'll stick with the Classic Editor until I find a new content management solution.

Jay Versluis on How to fix Spotlight Search stop it from disappearing on macOS

Saturday, 15th December 2018

Thank you! I've read about re-indexing and didn't want to believe that was a solution (when I tried it last, it took forever too). And meddling with .plist files is more like a punishment for developers, let alone users. I found this solution in one of the Apple Forum threads. One tick box solves all our problems - #RESULT

billpennock on How to fix Spotlight Search stop it from disappearing on macOS

Saturday, 15th December 2018

That was fabulous, so much easier than the two other "solutions" which didn't seem to work for everyone. reindexing takes forever only to find it didn't help some people and deleting the .plist seems invasive. This worked like a charm, how did you ever find it?

Ah, thank you so much for clarifying this - it makes perfect sense. I would have probably seen those warnings with DEBUG mode on, which was not active. I really appreciate you taking the time to share this :-)

Kaji on How to disable JetPack nag messages in the WordPress Admin interface

The second argument in a hook is a function name ("callback") to invoke. In this case, __return_false() is a special function in WP Core that does exactly as it says—returns FALSE. The reason it was likely working in spite of the mistake is that a bad function name would produce a notice/warning, but not a fatal error, which in either case is enough to change the TRUE value originally passed to the filter to something other than TRUE, causing it to abort execution.

Clive on How to add something to the_content in WordPress using PHP

Sunday, 2nd December 2018

Thanks, using phpMyAdmin changes every record, I am trying to add a #hashtag to a post then when there is a reply add that same hashtag to each comment after it has been made, I think maybe I need to look more closely at the WP Query and the Header-Ad.
