KruXoR - September 2022 - Newsletter #1

View this online here...

So its been a busy week for me anyway, like most weeks. I actually decided to start getting up early after reading (or started reading) the 5am club book. Im still not up to the part why its so good to get up early, but so far it seems good.. and Motivating. 

Not only is this the first newsletter for september, but its the first newsletter! Well the first one i have written anyway, and hopefully i will stick with it and then write more than one.

Interesting things i have found this week

Car Manufacturer Vehicle Specifications

Yeah i know this is a weird one, but i for some reason created a database with a bunch of cars in it, and then an api and then a front end for it, which is not that exciting, unless you really like cars.. But you can look up the car data here. ;)

Simple File Cache in PHP

I was working on a script this week where i had to download a file, and rather than download it multiple times i thought i would add a simple file cache that can be re-used fairly easily.

Winamp Released a final version!

I know, i thought they did that years ago, but apparently they are working on it again. Its still tiny on high res monitors, but it does the job still, i installed the new version and could not really tell much of a difference, but hey, i guess its still good.

Subscriber Updates

I have switched to mail chimp, rather than well nothing, which is what i had, just a list in a database that was getting filled with spam or seemingly bots, so i have added the list into mail chimp and will see how that goes, if you all unsubscribe i guess you are all bots and ill cry a bit.

How to switch and use multiple desktops in windows 11

I know this is probably an old thing, but i just figured out how to use it, its quite good if you are always juggling multiple apps and moving them all around the place.

"Olivia, my eldest daughter, caught measles when she was seven years old. As the illness took its usual course I can remember reading to her often in bed and not feeling particularly alarmed about it. Then one morning, when she was well on the road to recovery, I was sitting on her bed showing her how to fashion little animals out of coloured pipe-cleaners, and when it came to her turn to make one herself, I noticed that her fingers and her mind were not working together and she couldn’t do anything. 'Are you feeling all right?' I asked her. 'I feel all sleepy,' she said. In an hour, she was unconscious. In twelve hours she was dead. The measles had turned into a terrible thing called measles encephalitis and there was nothing the doctors could do to save her. That 1962, but even now, if a child with measles happens to develop the same deadly reaction from measles as Olivia did, there would still be nothing the doctors could do to help her. On the other hand, there is today something that parents can do to make sure that this sort of tragedy does not happen to a child of theirs. They can insist that their child is immunised against measles. ...I dedicated two of my books to Olivia, the first was ‘James and the Giant Peach’. That was when she was still alive. The second was ‘The BFG’, dedicated to her memory after she had died from measles. You will see her name at the beginning of each of these books. And I know how happy she would be if only she could know that her death had helped to save a good deal of illness and death among other children."

I just checked google books for BFG, and the dedication is there.
