    I'm not sure if im posting in the right thread, let alone society :lol:

    I have an IPod touch and I have many apps on the device.
    I have a good idea for a game app but I'm not sure where to start.

    I really would like to avoid paying entrance fees etc and from what I've searched on google, Im not sure I can trust them.

    Can anyone help?

    It's been like this for days.
    My router has been off and on a few times (are there other ways to force dynamic IPs?)

    Another issue: Windows is reading 22:51 when it's actually 21:51, and this is with Auto Detect DST checked. I had it unchecked to counteract this problem but apparently that can interfere with Google stuff. I've changed it back and reloaded Chrome and nothing happened.
    No idea about the IPs. If you're on a static IP then I don't think there's anything you can do to change it, if you're on a dynamic system then you've probably been through a few already anyway. Do you have any other computers you can connect from? And, what happens if you try to connect to other secure sites, e.g. https://www.paypal.co.uk/uk ?

    I'm not 100% sure what you're asking, are you wanting to write an iOS app yourself?

    Sorry, I have an idea for an app but I want to submit that idea to game developers. I don't know where to start or who to go to. I'm no tech guy so I know nothing about all the tech stuff behind it, so I can't make the app by myself

    Try making a thread in the Webmaster forum or the Mobile Phones forum, see if anyone else has had any experience with what you want to do

    Have any of you taken the plunge and completely ****canned Facebook in favour of Google+?
    (Original post by alexsheppard11)
    Nope, i use it quite a lot for finding out what is going on in terms of student societies, photography related stuff and for posting a tonne of photos.
    I use a chat client for google talk, msn and facebook chat so i dont have to look at the facebook site all day.
    Not yet, and again, I find out too much about what's going on at uni on Facebook

    Just doing some cleanup on my web server, I discovered that Linode have added 4 GB of space to it since I last did any housekeeping. Not sure what I should do with that, try another distro maybe? :holmes:

    Also, not had to reboot the server for over six months. :awesome:

    Hi guys, wasn't really sure where to post this, but i'll try here!
    Basically, just setup a paypal account to use for ebay. Do I need to add funds to use paypal-as in is that the whole point of paypal? so money comes from that instead of directly from my bank account?
    Any help appreciated!

    If any of you run a Linux server, you need this script. :awesome:

    Code:
    /usr/bin/uptime | perl -ne "/(\d+) d/;print 8,q(=)x\$1,\"D\n\""

    It's a graph of uptime, nothing too sinister...

    Unfortunately not, they'd blocked off the admin tools pane which was annoying. Ended up having to buy a new one because the work had to be in that afternoon. £6 for a 1GB stick, I felt like I'd been stabbed :\
