     Is there a certain youtube channel that you subscribe to, or don't, but you want to download there new videos when they come out, well then you're in luck, 'cause in this post I'm going to be telling you how to achieve this. You're going to need a few scripts, but don't worry its all painless, and if I could figure out on my own, you can figure it out with my instructions. ;)
     First things first, you're going to need to have a script installed on your system called Youtube-dl. (Source and installation instructions here) and then you're going...

     Firstly let me mention my system specs so you will know if this is going to help you should you be facing the same problem. I'm running Linux Mint 15, 64bit version, and have an Nvidia gtx 660Ti graphics card. My desktop environment is Cinnamon, version 1.8.8 but I expect it should be the same in future versions, though I haven't verified that.
     I just recently got myself a new, to me, 23" monitor and decided that like any true geek I'd double up my screen space by using both the new and the old monitors. Plugging them both in was no trouble...

     Reread that post title, let it sink in for a moment. Yes you read it right, in this enlightened year of 2014 we're still turning non-sexual objects into sexual ones, kinda sad isn't it. So how are we doing that, take a look.
     Anything strike you odd about this garden sculpture? Reptiles, wearing bikinis. Notice the problem? Think about it, reptiles, they lay eggs, and they don't feed their young milk, and to top it off, they don't even have breasts. Yet some "genius" decided to put this...

My latest submission to

      I've created about thirty trim/moulding profiles, using curves in Blender, because I used curves you can easily trim up a room just by using a curve with interpolation set to vector and not have to worry about getting good corners with a mesh version.
     I'm going to add more profiles to this blend as time goes on and I want to add some more textures and a little system for creating picture frames, right now I'm having problems with that, because of the rotation needing to be...

     If you love old school games and have a palm pilot, or something running PalmOS, you'll be interested in this post, however if you don't have a palmpilot there isn't much reason to keep reading.

     So what is Kyle's Quest you ask well it's an easy to play, yet entertaining game, for PalmOS, I can't stress that enough, this is for PalmOS, something that is quickly dying out, but PalmPilots are still around, I have four personally, and this game plays well on most. With all the different levels I can't just give one story line that all the...

     I'm hoping that this blog post will be useful to some people, who such as myself are taking the plunge and building their own computer, well I've already built my own computer, and am now sharing some of the things I learned. Don't plug anything in until you have everything put together, you don't need the system live when you build it, you're only asking for trouble. Instructions are useless. You heard me, USELESS, not because you don't need them, but because they are so poorly made. I'm not suggesting you don't look at them, or read them, no, not at all, please...

     In this post I'm going to show how to get notifications from people or pages on Google+ with limited work on your part. It only takes a minute or two to set up, and you get to reap the results forever.
     To start with you're going to want to have a Google+ account, if you don't have that, I can't see that this is going to be much help to you.
    Visit the Google+ home page and from there go to the people tab, in the drop down on the left upper corner. Click on the Your Circles and in the lower left portion of the...

     So another song has started playing at my workplace all to often, and this time it really has some serious problems, one of which is I can't even tell what it is suppose to mean, but here are the lyrics, my discussion underneath, as usual.
"Call Me Maybe"
I threw a wish in the well,
Don't ask me, I'll never tell
I looked to you as it fell,
And now you're in my way
I'd trade my soul for a wish,
Pennies and dimes for a kiss
I wasn't looking for this,
But now you're in my way
Your stare was...

     Sometimes you just really want to be able to get an RSS feed of a certain twitter user, are they called tweeters? Be it because you don't want them to know you are following them, and I'm not promoting stalking here, well not directly ;) Or maybe, and more likely, you just don't want to miss a tweet from somebody, but you aren't always checking twitter, and you don't have a mobile device that you can get a notification every time they tweet. Now it used to be possible in the past to get an RSS feed directly from Twitter, however with the API change that no longer...

             Welcome back, if you haven't read part 1 you can find it here.

     We'll be looking at more of the options that Variety gives us, starting with the Manual downloading tab.
     Manual downloading is actually pretty cool, say you're browsing the web, and stumble upon a cool picture that you'd like to have as a desktop background, well you can just click'n'drag that image, or URL and drop it on the Variety icon in your status bar and the image will be saved to your...
