So it’s been three years since the giraffe riddle. You know the one which resulted in you having to put a picture of a giraffe as your profile picture when you inevitability got the wrong answer because of how ridiculously stupid it is (that is what I assume anyway). Well guess what, it’s back with a twist. It has the …

You’re awake in your room at night. You’re unable to move, completely paralysed, fully awake and you’re certainly not alone! At first you think that you’ve seen something, then you don’t.

Ask any computer science teacher in the country and they’ll tell you one simple thing. “Flash is dead.” The curriculum leader at my Secondary School, which was also my sixth form college, was particularly adamant on this issue. He would actually regularly exercise his view about flash being dead nearly every lesson when I was in year 12. The rest …

What’s The Wi-Fi Password?

Alex Computers, Extreme Scoffery, General Nuggets, Get You Thinking, Made You Think, Reviews & Opinions 0 Comments

The most common question asked by my generation is not “What’s a cheeky Nando’s”, like a lot of people think it is, no it’s more like “what’s the Wi-Fi password?”.  It saddens me to think that many people are addicted to this technology that really shouldn’t dictate our lives, but it’s pretty clear that it obviously does.

So I’ve been feeling quite a bit under the weather recently which is never good. In fact my productivity decreases by about 60% every time I have a cold. Most of the time, I use first defence nasal spray to get rid of it, but sometimes there is no easy way to get rid of a cold fast and you …

YouTube

YouTube provides no profit to Google

Alex Computers, General Nuggets, Made You Think, Technology 0 Comments

While the majority of the internet were moronically squabbling about the colour of an unsightly blue and black dress on Friday, I decided to look up more useful things on the internet. One article that was written on engadget last Thursday particularly caught my eye and that is the fact that YouTube still isn’t actually making any money for Google. …

Alex Alex's Terminology, General Nuggets, Get You Thinking, Made You Think, The Weird, Wired and Wacky World Of Alex Wornast 0 Comments

When I get asked what my blog is called, people often give me a strange look after I tell them. The main reaction for this is of course “why?” or at least “what does tetracious mean?” seeing as it’s not actually a word that exists in the English dictionary or any other dictionary for that matter.

Ah winter, a season that most would associate with cold, wet, windy, misery and darkness. January is said to be the worst month  and the winter blues are common among many people after the festive month of December. This saddens me, because summer gets all the attention. Oh yes, the summer has long days, not long nights, it’s warmer, it …

Back in 2005 every light bulb in the house was replaced with a new fangled energy-efficient light bulbs!
