Find GPS coordinates on Google Maps

Within Google Maps, simply right-click on the location – be it a business or place – and select the ‘What’s Here’ menu item. The GPS coordinates then appear in the search box jut above the map, which you can select and use as you see fit.

Making your Facebook business page visible to non-Facebook Users

A lot of businesses on Facebook probably don’t know this, but people who don’t have a Facebook account won’t be able to read your business/fan page. If you are on Facebook and not logged in you may see a “You need to sign-in to view this page” message or “Sign up to Facebook” form. This is what users who do not have a Facebook account will see.

To turn this off it’s quite cryptic but also quite simple to check. It’s all down to the restrictions that you may have accidentally set up or are Facebook’s default settings:

step 1) Login to your Facebook page and click Edit Page

Click Edit Page

 

 

step 2) Set Age Restriction to Anyone (13+)

Also if you’re still having problems after you amend the age restriction I recommend deleting any Country Restriction (above Age Restrictions)

step 3) Click Save and you’re done!

The best way to check is to open a fresh web browser or log out of Facebook

How to close the Hotmail image gap in HTML Email

Very simply, when sending HTML emails to Hotmail an image gap appears even though in Yahoo, Gmail and Apple Mail it looks fine.

To stop this from happening there is a very quick and easy fix for this issue that doesn’t affect the look of the email in other email clients.

Within the Email’s image source code:

<img src=”an-image.jpg” width=”150″ height=”250″alt=”Hello I am an Image” style=“display: block; />

Voila! You will have no more problems with image gaps in Hotmail.

What Does Cache Mean?

OK, I’ll admit it: for reasons unbeknownst to myself and the people around me I actually pronounce it caché – with an attractive acute accent over the ‘e’ that makes it sound a lot like café. I know what you’re thinking, “My, he seems very suave”. I bet you can almost imagine me sitting by the computer holding a long-drawn cigarette pouting excessively to the air after saying it, can’t you? Well, I don’t smoke but yes, I do pout excessively after saying it. It’s actually pronounced “cash” and it’s known in many forms when talking about computers but today I am going to quickly mention about web cache and how clearing it can cure a few browser headaches.

An internet browser’s web cache helps speed up your web viewing by temporarily storing (or caching) files and information about a website and it’s pages you once visited. It actually helps minimise information passed across your network as your browser calls on a version of the website already saved on your computer.

When should I clear it?

  • If you think a webpage is not opening or operating properly. Let’s say you’re logging in with a new username and password combination with webmail and an error occurs
  • To view fresh website changes (even after a page refresh/reload)
  • Clearing the cache is safe and should not delete any important information. Clearing it every now and again is good maintenance

Clearing a web cache is easy, and can be found in your web browser’s preferences, tools or options under the privacy tab. It may be hidden in a sub-directory under “Clear History” in some browsers (i.e. Firefox), but doesn’t clear your Web History as that is kept separate from the cache.

Hope that helps!

What Does Beta Mean?

If you’ve seen the word ‘Beta’ on a website or software and always wondered what it meant, then here’s the simple answer:

It means the website or software is in its testing stages and you may encounter some problems, bugs and errors. Beta versions are usually released and honed before a final more complete version is released.
