Solved: Facebook Cover Photo Not Uploading


Recently I tried to update the cover photo on my Facebook page. I clicked the ‘Change Cover’ button, attempted to upload a new image and waited…..and waited…..and waited. Nothing. So I tried to do the same thing in three different browsers; Internet Explorer, Firefox & Chrome as I had read that many users solved the problem by doing this. It didn’t work for me though! So I got to messing around with some of my Internet settings for IE and managed to figure it out, Continue reading “Solved: Facebook Cover Photo Not Uploading”

Starcraft 2: The Complete Noob’s Guide

A list of resources for Starcraft 2 beginners.

A good list of resources for Starcraft 2 Beginners at the end of the article.

After playing through the (thoroughly impressive) Starcraft 2 campaign lately I decided that I was ready to give multiplayer a go. So I fired it up, logged into my trusty battle.net account and joined the practise league. The addition of an unranked practise league was a pleasant suprise as I had a sneaking suspicion that my Win/Loss ratio would be well in the negative range after a few games.

I decided to stick with the Terran as I was already familiar with their units from the campaign missions. I was paired up with ‘Nathan’. As the timer ticked over and the game began Nathan informed me that this was his first time online and that I should go easy on him. Needless to sayI was wiped off the map in less than 25 minutes by a giant fleet of Motherships. My poor 50 or so strong batallion of Marines didn’t stand a chance.

I think Nathan may have been a bit dishonest or maybe he was just an RTS natural or Korean or something. Feeling a bit disgraced I moved on to another game. In an effort to prevent the same thing from happening again I concentrated a bit more on air defense but the next game only lasted 15 minutes after another so-called ‘first-timer’ sent a column of Siege Tanks through my base.

This brings me to my first piece of advice. Starcraft has a replay feature. Use it! If you get completely annihilated make sure you save the replay and watch it back. This way you can see exactly what your opponent did to get himself in a position to completely trample your inferior efforts. Continue reading “Starcraft 2: The Complete Noob’s Guide”

How to unlink your YouTube and Google accounts

This little problem had been bugging me for a while. I got myself a new e-mail address with G-Mail and wanted to link it with my existing YouTube account but I could not find anywhere to unlink my old G-Mail account from YouTube in order to link it again with my new one! (I hope that made sense).

A quick search revealed many other people with the same issue and finally I stumbled across this on the YouTube website which solved all my problems: http://www.youtube.com/my_account_unlink.

For those of you who don’t know what I am on about. There are currently two types of YouTube accounts, those that were created before Google owned YouTube and those that were created after Google bought YouTube.

Google is planning on phasing out the old YouTube accounts by forcing people to link their existing YouTube accounts with a Google account, users will then have to login to YouTube using their Google account details. This Google account will then act as a master account for all of Google’s services including G-Mail and YouTube.

Thanks for reading.
