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

P.S.: Found other companies who made a similar gesture? Share it!

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!
