Welcome to Randomly Collected Tech Tips, not Radio Controlled TiTties (I’ll admit I chose RCTT on purpose).

The purpose of this blog is to collate all the random bits of useful internet and technology tips that I come across but don’t have the capacity to remember. Whether it be as simple as ‘Ctrl + V’ or as complicated as modifying a BIOS if I find it useful I’ll post it here.

Hi guys and girls.

It’s been a year since I last posted something. I’m not dead yet. I’ve just been distracted by a mistress called “Life”.

There’s a pile of stuff (literally) that I want to post about and I will in due course so watch this space!

I was talking with my good friend Pasha and we were discussing what would be our next smartphone (which I will post about soon) and this video sprung to mind.

The first scene was at the start of the show. The second scene was at the end after the credits.

Youtube High Definition Add-on for Firefox

December 27, 2011 1 comment

First of all this is an add-on for Firefox. Chrome should have something similar. But IE and Safari users will probably have to look at using a Greasemonkey script.

I came across this today because I was listening to some songs that I could only find on Youtube. Problem was they streamed at 360p by default which comes with terrible audio quality (yes I chnaged my account settings to use the best quality available). I had three options. Change it manually at the start of every song, go into fullscreen mode and listen to the playlist like that (auto max quality works in fullscreen) or look for some add or tool to do this for me. Obviously I did the latter =)

What I found was “Youtube High Definition” by Baris Derin. It has the option to select a particular quality setting or always go for maximum resolution. It also has an option to automatically shrink or expand the video.

“Youtube High Definition” on the Firefox Add-on directory: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/youtube-high-definition/
“Youtube High Definition” Add-on homepage: http://barisderin.com/?p=1113

Ever needed to explain the purpose of thermal compound?

Here’s a short animation that is sufficient in explaining the purpose of using thermal compound.


Should the site ever go down I’ve backed up the flash animation but you will have to request it lest it be my hand in the gullotine should there be a lawsuit.
