This is a tip for those who might run where giant swarms of gnats sometimes loiter by the side of the road. This tip stems from a run on the Mayan Riviera in Mexico, but I've encountered swarms of gnats in Virginia and Kentucky as well. After your run, always stop and look in a mirror before going into public. Otherwise, you might actually complete a transaction at the resort store and greet five people before realizing you have up to 15 gnats stuck to your face and neck.
We've all been there. We're looking at a site and keep refreshing to see if what we're looking for has been updated. But, often times our browsers will cache items on the page (especially images and Flash™ documents.) This enables faster page loads, and less data transfer, which is actually nice. However, if you're a web developer, or someone who checks the tips site a lot for comments, you want to know that the information you're viewing is perfectly accurate. And, you don't want to empty your cache every time you look at a site. So, here's what you do. To get a page to refresh, and not draw from a cache, simply put a good old-fashioned question mark (?) at the end of your URL, and hit "Enter."
Show yourself anonymous!
conjunction & relative adverb chiefly Brit.
ORIGIN late Middle English : from whiles + -t as in against .
Still anonymous, you better watch out or I'll disable anonymous comments.
Based mostly on the curves in your d's.
Every comment is sent to me via Gmail, which puts ads next to my email based on what it's talking about. Here is one I actually got:
Messy Ear Wax?
Loosen & Drain It With Beautiful 12" Ear Candles You Make Yourself
Whoa, and I've just realized that "my" second post on here is not from me (and i don't believe it's the original anonymous). I didn't even see that when I came on this morning. Not only is someone lying, they're hacking. And no one likes a hacker.
Pete/Jay? What can we do about this?
I'm really not sure how I feel about this. I'm sure it's just a friend messing with me, but it makes me feel a little uneasy. I'm sure if it was someone else who was being copied, I'd think it was grand fun. In this case, however, I'd rather this little game was wrapped up quickly.
They're not necessarily hacking. If you sign your comment as "Other" you can make it say whatever you want, and point wherever you want. They could just sign it as jules and make the hyperlink go to your blogger profile.
For example, this is Andy. Or is it David Bowie???
Um. Is that crossing the line?
I'm so glad I don't have Pete's in box!
So, I'm curious! Did anonymous blogger identify themself??
