Snippet: How To Tell if Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You

November 16th, 2008

Let’s face it cat owners, we all know the little fur balls are plotting on taking over the world (I blame the Egyptians myself!). When they aren’t asking “I Can has Cheezburger?, they are working out how to get rid of us humans. Lucikly, there’s a list you can work down to try and work out if the cute little ball of fluff is trying to kill you. There’s even a quiz for you to check – odds are that your cat is trying to kill you.

Snippet: HSBC Overdraft rates for business customers

October 14th, 2008

I’m just looking at a temporary overdraft with my HSBC Business Bank Account and I’m shocked at their fees. For a £2,000 overdraft facility (i.e. just for it to “be there” and not necessarily be used) – they are going to charge me £100 (that’s 5%) setup fee and if I do happen to use it, they’ll charge 10% interest (5.50% over base rate of 4.5%) pa on a monthly basis.

Ok, that’s for a 12 month overdraft – I did just want £1,000 for a month (31 days) just to cover the difference in having to pay for things to sell and getting the money for the items from Paypal (they’ve sold, but it takes 5 workings days to get the funds from Paypal). For a £1,000 overdraft for 31 days, it’ll still cost £20.00 (just 2% this time), but still the 10% interest rate!

Ouch!

Snippet: Yahoo YUI Datatable and Internet Explorer (IE)

October 3rd, 2008

I must remember that if I’ve using the Yahoo! (Yahoo User Interface) Datatable and the page validates and works in Firefox, but doesn’t work in Internet Explorer (IE), then the problem is most likely caused by an additional comma at the end of an array.

The YUI logger will not record any actions from that point on and no error will be reported by Microsoft Internet Explorer (at least not IE 6 or IE 7) – it’ll just stop the Javascript from working from the stray comma onwards.

Annoying!

Snippet: What a waste of a domain name

September 13th, 2008

http://www.londonjobvacancies.co.uk sounds a perfect job site URL – unfortunately, it’s owned by and only used by the British Board of Film Classification: who have their own website at www.bbfc.co.uk/. What a waste of a high value domain name :(
