Do you own your PS3?

According to this post the game-developer David Braben doesn't think you do.

Are you using Linux & need a video downloader which isn't browser based?

If you do then you should download ClipGrab.

It also converts videos too.

YouTube Problem

Have you ever had a problem on YouTube where you can't subscribe to a channel?

There are many theories as to why you can't subscribe such as you may have subscribed to over 20 videos in an hour or that you might have reached the maximum number of subscriptions, which is apparently 2,000.

These theories don't seem to be correct as within a few hours I can subscribe again, the problem seems to be caused by maintenance work being carried out on the servers.

Alps Touchpad in Ubuntu

I've recently brought a netbook computer which I installed Ubuntu Linux on. Everything worked fine except for the fact that the touchpad is incorrectly recognised as an ImPS/2 Generic mouse. This is extremely annoying as the 'tap to click' functionality of the touchpad can't be turned off.

Apparently a lot of people have reported the same bug here on launchpad but there is no solution yet.

ProBoards iPhone App

Earlier this morning I was quite surprised to discover that someone was using their iPhone or a similar device to browse the Basic4GL forum.

After a little searching I found a free ProBoards App available here.

The App is also compatible with the iPod touch too.

Is a nice & lightweight Twitter client available from here.

It makes really good use of the .NET Framework & the ClickOnce installer technology.

In the past I've encountered problems playing MP4 files on my computer.

I've tried many different media solutions such as K-Lite & VLC but they've still caused trouble like playing sound but no video.

I have now uninstalled all the other media players on my computer & use SMPlayer which has dealt with every file I've thrown at it so far.
