Just to the right of centre on a pre-2019 Mazda 3 is the boot release button. But move further to the right there’s a second, smaller, round button. It’s not mentioned in the owner’s manual, so what it do?
I ran the above using a carbon footprint calculator available at websitecarbon.com. Bearing in mind I’ve done nothing to keep the footprint low, I’m quite happy with the result of this.
My 2012 MacBook Pro lives on, despite coming close to what appeared to its final demise at the weekend. I gave the MacBook to my wife a couple of years ago and she’s loved using it – but before I did, I’d replaced the battery and the hard drive. But, at the weekend, the diagnosis […]
Back in 2014 I started using a pair of Creative T30 wireless speakers. Considering how small they are, and lack a subwoofer, the sound was always pleasingly good. For the last 2.5 years, they’ve been paired to my work MacBook to great effect. But that’s now come to an end.

Just to be clear from the start, I am not a fan of most grammar “rules” (especially as they’re usually anything but). My writing may give that away. However, I thought I’d share something I learnt recently about the use of bullet points which does make sense. But, feel free to ignore them.
I’ve been using svnX for years now for managing my WordPress plugins with the svn repositories that WordPress.org provide. It’s pretty old-school and I keep intending to move to Versions but, yeah, time always seems to be against me.
