Congrats to Instagram’s acquisition by Facebook. Not bad for a 13 person team to rake in 1 billion dollars! Individual payouts vary on time spent, but one payout is rumoured to be at around 400 million in money & stock.
Maybe this will help someone else who wears contact lenses.
With my my saline solution and glasses left at the office, I was stuck. It’s late, and I need to take out my contacts. They are not the disposable kind.
I normally store them in saline solution, because most disinfecting solutions bother my eyes, even after neutralizing the solution.
I was forced to put them in a multi-purpose solution overnight. “No rinse needed.” Yea, right.
The next morning after putting the contact lenses in my eyes, the eyes quickly turned red, itchy and burning.
I read the ingredients on the back, and saw it only had a small amount of cleaner it. So, I tried splashing some water on my eyes. Normally this bugs the contacts, but I had nothing to lose.
It gave me instant relief. After a couple minutes, I splashed more water on my eyes. It felt much better.
I was able to go work without them bugging me too much. Rinsing them with saline there did the final trick.
Thank goodness – my eyes just needed a sip of water.
This is post is about getting Wordpress to properly work with WAMP.
I often use WAMP , a full-featured web server with MySQL and PHP and phpMyAdmin to test out website changes and development on my own machine – one of the best things out there for free. When running Wordpress in WAMP, one of the features of Wordpress is using search-engine-friendly url’s. An example of how this url looks would be http://www.foo.com/this-is-my-latest-blog-post
However, WAMP out of the box will not word properly with this feature of Wordpress. Luckily, this is easily fixed.
0) Get Wordpress installed in WAMP – instructions for this are at wordpress.org, so I won’t repeat that here.
1) In wordpress, change the permalink setting to /%postname%/
2) In WAMP, make sure the apache module alias_module and rewrite_module are running.
3) If you are running multiple sites in WAMP, you’ll need to make sure that in the httpd-vhosts.conf file the Allow Override line is replaced with AllowOverride FileInfo Options.
I stopped in my local Best Buy in Windsor, ON, Canada, and they reduced their cd area to roughly two aisles. It previously was about four aisles. This eliminated around twelve thousand cd’s according to someone there.
What are they going to do with the extra space? They are going to display big screen tv’s with gaming systems, such as the Wii, Xbox, and PS3 to push more gaming systems. This appears to be Best Buy finally responding to trends, although it is a little sad to see.
