Banks and financial institutions are constantly giving out advice about email safety, helping customers to avoid phishing scams. Make sure the email is genuine, don’t click on links, never give your personal information away online. Sensible advice, unless the financial institution doesn’t make it easy to actually verify their emails.
I have updated the template for this site to use the Responsive theme from ThemeID.
The theme is one of the most downloaded in the WordPress theme library and seems to scale really well for screen size, including on phones and tablets. It is also wider and long posts that contain code and images look much better.
I have previously raved about BatchPCB, a low cost prototyping service run by SparkFun out of the USA. However, it seems that you now can’t select shipping to the UK (and perhaps other parts of Europe) and they don’t seem to be doing too much about it.
I emailed a few weeks ago and have received no reply, so all I have to go on is a few posts on their forums which confirm I’m not the only one experiencing the issue.
I finally upgraded my old iPhone 3GS to iOS4, but it wasn’t a smooth process. It seems O2 have a problem with their provisioning process because, after the upgrade, all of the carrier settings had disappeared. There was no way to setup Visual Voicemail in the menu and no internet services worked when I wasn’t on wifi.
Every time the phone was plugged into the computer iTunes would say that there was an update for the carrier settings, but it never applied and the menu entries remained blank.
