Fact For The Day

The nearest possible Earth-like planet is far away. Very far. On current technology, it would take somewhere between 15,000 - 20,000 years (at best) to get there. Even adding in technological advance, that’s unlikely to change in any significant way.

Mars will never be a home for humans, not even Elon’s progeny

Hack of the day

This may be old news to some, but I just found out about it today.

If you have a Gmail account, say, [email protected], you can add a + and a number before the @: [email protected]

You now have a brand new email address that you can use for getting free trials etc. but with all mail still sent to the original one. And you can keep doing it by changing the number.

You can also put dots in between characters in your Gmail address: i.e. [email protected] or joe.bloggs or j.o.e.b.l.o.g.g.s will all work.

Still not working on chrome for me

The site’s web certificate expired around midnight on 20th June, so people will have issues connecting until that’s updated. Chrome is particularly strict about things like that, Safari at least lets you accept the risk.

Ah so it ain’t just me then! 100% been trying to get on since the middle of the week. Had to consult my IT adviser (13yo son).
