Attacks in France – Solidarity by Amazon (and me)

Posted in Did you know, Internet, Website, World with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 14, 2015 by Sirusdark

I was watching the news tonight on the situation in France and nothing less than HOURS later, Amazon.ca had updated their website with these images (did a quick montage):

amazon_montage_solidarity“Solidarity” by Amazon.ca

To my knowledge, this has to be among the fastest corporate social response I’ve ever witnessed. Amazon, I raise you my virtual hat.

To all French citizens and friends, you have my dearest sympathies.

Sincerely,
Sirus

Did you know? Sideshow Collectible runs on WordPress!

Posted in Browser, Did you know, Internet, Website, WordPress with tags , , on July 2, 2014 by Sirusdark

Sideshow LogoHere’s a quick one: Sideshow Collectibles’ website actually runs on WordPress!

Investigation skillz

Here’s a very simple and easy way to find out if a website uses WordPress: using Firefox (or any good web browser) simply right-click any image and choose View Image (if you don’t have that option, your browser sux). Then look at the URL; if you see a sub-folder such as wp-content along with theme… Bingo! It’s running WordPress.

A more complicated way would be to use an online tool (see references) that investigate for you… But where’s the fun in that? :D

Enjoy!

Stay tune for more interesting knowledge!
