For those who breathlessly wait for QOTD to arrive every day, I have created a QOTD category and moved all the QOTDs (there are almost 2500 and counting) into it, with the help of a nice little WordPress plugin called “Batch-Move Posts.”
The plugin works very nicely, though it could do with clearer instructions.
I would have preferred doing it with an SQL query, but I couldn’t find where in the tables WordPress hides the link between the categories and the posts, as it’s changed since I first started using WP.
Once more, it’s only a matter of time . . . .
From a high-rise rooftop on the west side of the Schuylkill, a 20-year-old Drexel University student allegedly operated a flying camera drone recklessly all the way to the Ben Franklin Bridge, and it nearly collided with a police helicopter Wednesday evening.
At one point, Joseph Roselli allegedly flew the drone as high as 1,500 feet, which is restricted for use by Philadelphia International Airport.
Roselli was charged with risking a catastrophe and recklessly endangering another person, court records show.
I was in my local drug store the other day. They had quadcopters for sale on the toy rack.
Thinking is a lost art.
Fumbling fake news.
There’s another word for “fake news,” y’know. When I was a young ‘un back in the olden days, we called it “lies.”
Selfie Sticks are officially passe.
How do I know? There’s one for sale in my most recent Publisher’s Clearing House mailing. (PCH is one of my secret vices. Entering the sweepstakes is cheaper than entering the lottery, and the odds of winning the big one are just about as good. A first-class stamp is a cheap price to pay for a dream.)
“Sharing” works both ways.
A Las Vegas man who rented his house out through Airbnb is facing criminal charges after Metro Police allege he used “spy” cameras hidden in bedroom smoke detectors to record guests without their knowledge.
A District Court grand jury last week indicted the homeowner, Christopher Gregory Rogers, on five counts of capturing an image of the private area of another person, a gross misdemeanor, court records show.
