Writing an Article with the ‘Gutenberg’ WordPress Block Editor

So I’ve discussed the Gutenberg Block Editor on WordPress before. The Block Editor is a feature that cam with WordPress version 5.0, which was supposed to completely transform the way you write and build your pages. Clearly WordPress was starting to realise that a large part of their market consisted of people who used WordPress to make actual websites, rather than just blogging and writing. I mean, that’s understandable. In a way. People want to be innovative with their products. But innovation isn’t always a good thing. And the innovation behind the Block Editor is starting to show itself as… [Continue Reading]

The Weird Thing I Miss in Pokemon Go – Team Rocket Grunt Battles

It’s funny what I find myself missing. Due to, well, the world collapsing and a lot of people staying indoors, Pokemon Go has been a bit of a weird thing. But even with the world being what it is, I recently moved house. Because of that, I no longer have stupidly easy access to Pokestops. Sure, I managed to get a Pokestop at the end of my road, but the density of Pokestops just isn’t there. And because of this, I can’t do the thing I weirdly enjoy most in Pokemon Go. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because the… [Continue Reading]

Why I Am Bad At Making Videos

I bet some of you have probably forgotten about our Youtube channel, right? The SPUF of Legend was created years ago by aabicus, as part of our 1000 Articles celebration. That was way back in 2016! Feels like a century ago, if I’m honest. But anyway, aabicus wanted to make a Youtube channel and we’d end up posting video articles on there. Except we never really got into the swing of things. It turns out, publishing a 500-word article every day is far, far easier than publishing a video of any length every week. As we get closer to 3000… [Continue Reading]

Stupid Tips for Pokemon Go’s GBL

It’s pretty clear to me that I’m not the only person who hates the GBL. The handful of articles I’ve written about the Go Battle League constantly pop up with more views than average. In fact, my article about giving up on the GBL completely is one of the more highly-commented and viewed articles on the site. But enough negativity. the GBL is here to stay, so we might as well try and get something from it. Suck it up and use the same fucking meta all the fucking time. Just use meta Pokemon. Get yourself an Azumaril, get yourself… [Continue Reading]

On Having A Lack of Points of Interest

The way Pokestops work in Pokemon Go is that they exist on real-world locations. These locations are called Waypoints or Points of Interest. Most of these have been nominated by local communities, because, well, they’re points of interest. Many of these Pokestops tend to be things in reality that are pretty cool. Things you’d point to and say “look at that!” Of course, with the option for the general public to submit Pokestop nominations, you’re going to get people submitting, well, crap. Which means that people reviewing the nominations have to, well, review that crap. It’s a pretty regular thing… [Continue Reading]

If I Could Completely Rework the Pyro…

I’ll be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of the Pyro. The reason why is simple: Pyro is a close range class in a game filled with mid-range characters. That and the fact that the flamethrower just feels off compared to almost all other weapons in the game. Everything else shoots bullets or projectiles. Everything else is pretty clear that it hit you or damaged you. Flamethrowers are not the same. You get stray bits of flame that hit you or don’t hit you. Pyro overall is a jumbled mess of things that needs yet another complete rework anyway. So… [Continue Reading]

A Random Ramble About Pizza

Pizza is great. Anyone who says they hate pizza is lying, or either allergic to gluten or lactose or something. Or maybe they just haven’t had a pizza they liked yet. Frankly, it’s a nice, filling meal that’s easy to make and enjoyed by most people. Regardless of age. I could be 80 and still want pizza. It’s just so damn versatile! A pizza for everyone. The most obvious cool thing about pizza is that you can have so many different toppings. Nearly anything works, from a variety of cheeses, to grilled vegetables, to a wide array of meats. There… [Continue Reading]

Microwave Cakes

I’ve been stuck indoors a lot more than normal. And when I’m stuck indoors, I tend to get hungry for no real reason. Now, sure, I could always do some exercise or something. I could do something to make my hunger warranted. But I’m a lazy bastard, so rather than exercising in any way, I find myself walking to the kitchen. And then walking back out because there’s nothing I fancy. Then I walk back in and start baking. Before I start rambling however, here’s a recipe for you: Medic’s Microwave Cake Recipe Ingredients (makes 2-4 mugs’ worth of cake):… [Continue Reading]

The Death of SSLForFree.com

Let’s Encrypt is, to quote its own website, “A nonprofit Certificate Authority providing TLS certificates to 200 million websites.” More importantly, Let’s Encrypt is a way of getting SSL/TLS for your website without paying money. A while back, Firefox and Chrome both started enforcing that websites needed SSL certificates. An SSL certificate, to explain it in very basic terms, encrypts the data that goes back and forth from user to website. But when I started looking for SSL certificates for my websites, I was shocked. Prices are all over the place. Anything from $7ish a year, up to about $60… [Continue Reading]

An Update On That Bionicle Game

Back in April, a guy called Crainy revealed a trailer for a Bionicle game, in which you’d be able to explore the island of Mata Nui and play as one of the six legendary Toa. The trailer created waves and brought together a ton of old Bionicle fans. But it also raised a huge amount of questions, a lot of which have slowly been explained over time. Bionicle: Quest for Mata Nui still had a lot of mysteries though. On the 20th of May though, an announcement on the larger side was made by Crainy on the Bionicle: Quest for… [Continue Reading]
