Black Ops 3 Beta Optimizations

  
  Set the CPU priority to high, here is how to make a shortcut and always launch BO3 in high priority. Don’t alt-tab from the game, appearantly it can break the priority.

In your steamapps folder, locate the BO3 Beta folder and go inside the “players” folder and edit the ini file. Set the value of “ResolutionMultiplier” to 1 instead of 0.85 to get proper pixel ratio and increase visibility.

Set everything to low, disable shadows and transparency.…

Howto downgrade iPhone from iOS 4 to 2.2.1 or 3.1.3 and all other firmware versions

This evening I’ve downgraded an iPhone 3G from iOS 4 all the way back to 2.2.1. It was a little bit tricky but I finally figured it out. I’m back at 3.1.3 since not enough apps worked on 2.2.1 (for a brief iOS history on what has changed, see here).

Should you ever want to do it, this is how you do it. Note: The guides that were out there did not work for me, I kept getting Error 1600 all the time so this is what I did to make it work.…

Speed up Safari 4

Safari Icon

Safari 3 started up a whole lot faster than Safari 4 final and it’s been annoying me up until now. Disable some of the rather useless eyecandy for Safari 4 to restore the more speedier Safari:

Do you facecamp? Do you punk?

Yesterday when me and some random dude, Axel (pronounced “ASS-el”),  started a conversation in a comment thread of an old study mate of mine I realised we – inadvertedly - had invented a new phenomen. Perhaps people have been doing it for a while but me thinks none have invented this nice catch-phrase for it and therefore I rule and yes I invented it. It is awesome.

Automator folder action upload to ftp

automator-icon
Automator ftw!

 

I haven’t really tried out folder actions all that much but today I decided to give it a whirl. Usually when I write a blog I’ll end up wanting some movie poster..or like with this post, an icon, to go along with whatever crap I’m writing. I don’t really like hotlinking images from others since I wouldn’t really like anyone to hotlink my stuff and steal bandwidth.

So lately I have been downloading whatever image that I want to use and then upload it to a Google Pages account that I have and then linking to that image – this because I don’t really want to host these random images myself.…

IMDB Movie Ratings in WordPress

Edit March ’09: Duh. Imdb provides well hidden RSS service for this, this is an example of my IMDB vote history RSS feed: feed://rss.imdb.com/mymovies/list?l=8062614

You can just grab that feed and change my number “8062614” for your own number and add it to your site. Just use the WordPress plugin I mention below that shows RSS feeds from your sidebar and you’re golden.

Edit Jan’09: Here, I made a service for you, just enter your IMDB ratings page to scrape and go nuts!…
