Google you have failed
In case you hadn't noticed Google Suck at the main thing they claim to do well, not email, search results. Over the years Google have been trying to make their search results more user focused and relevant to what they assume you mean when you type in to their search box. The reality however is that although you probably know what you are looking for when you type in to Google or any other search provider Google makes the assumption that you are probably stupid and haven't got a clue what you are doing, nor would you be interested in anything that is not sourced from social media, a shop or some other branded entity. Many years ago I used to make a good living by making web sites that sold c

I recently spilled a can of fizzy drink on my laptop and rescued it and the keyboard from any lasting damage very easily and using a method I had not seen on the internet despite being told I would need to buy a new keyboard. The most important thing to do it remove the battery and power cable so there is no current going through any of the components, everyone knows that! Sadly the sugars and salts in most drinks is conductive and leaves a residue behind when it dries.

Searching remote web servers for files

Searching remote web servers for files
A command line PHP script for searching and downloading from web servers with directory listing enabled.  There are many web servers online today with directory indexing and browsing left enabled, this is either a mistake or people actually want you to be able to search and browse their files and resources. Being able to find these servers is the first point of interest as you won't know how useful they can be until you have seen what some people host publicly. Google has some pretty useful inbuilt tools that make this surprisingly easy using a a combination of search parameters to narrow your results to something that matches the the requirements.
