Deactivate Google-linked account

How does one deactivate their IFTTT account if the deactivation page wants a password, but as it's linked to Google does not have one?

Easiest way to get a degree? [UK]

1Submitted by Izwe - View comments

I've been in the development business for around 20 years, but despite my experience at good companies I still get passed over for interviews and someone in my office mentioned it could be because I don't have a degree.

Firstly, is there any truth to that? Are CVs binned purely because they don't contain a degree qualification, even when they have decades of experience? And if so, to increase my chances, how would I go about getting a degree in our field whilst also working full-time?

Isolated holiday location

1Submitted by Izwe - View comments

Are there any "deep in the woods", "middle of nowhere", "miles from humanity" cottages in England/Wales? I've had a look on AirBnB, but their search filters don't include an "off the beaten track" option, I've also looked through the National Trust cottages website and found a couple, but most seem to me near (i.e. within hearshot) of a main road or are in the middle of moors (i.e no trees).

Ideally I'm looking for a place my wife and I can hear nothing but nature, see the stars at night and walk around naked during the day without some rambler or dog walker surprising us.

Are there any Hue android apps which show bulbs in a grid rather than a list?

1Submitted by Izwe - View comments

I have a tablet mounted to the wall to control my lights which is currently displaying a web-based SmartThings control panel. I want to cut SmartThings out of the loop, but I cannot find a Hue app which shows bulbs in a grid in order to show all bulbs without scrolling. Anyone have a suggestion?

What's wrong with Mars?

2Submitted by Izwe - View comments

As in, the chocolate company.

Cadbury's has gone to the dogs since the Kraft buy-out and Nestlé are widely regarded as having immoral business practices, which got me thinking, what has Mars done wrong, or are they the only big chocolate company worth giving your money to?

My son's pregnant girlfriend's parents want to emigrate with her to Spain. Can I/my son stop them?

2Submitted by Izwe - View comments

Confusing title I'm sure.

Actors -

  • S: My son (under 18)
  • G: S's girlfriend (under 18)
  • P: G's parents

S+G are having a baby, P want to move to Spain with G, G doesn't want to go, S wants to make sure that he will still get to see the baby.

Can G be prevented from leaving the country while pregnant? If they emigrate after the birth can S/I prevent the baby from being issued a passport?

When did web development get so messy?

23Submitted by Izwe - View comments

OK, so I've been in this game for around 20 years and I thought it was high time I taught myself some Angular or React rather than resting on my C#/JavaScript laurels. Soo I had a look at some "getting started"-esque guides and before I can even start doing anything I have to install node, npm, yarn, systemjs, typescript, angular-cli, JSX, webpack, browserify, babel (or some mixture of them) and then compile the code before it can be run!

I do not want to be an old fuddy-duddy who doesn't embrace new technology, but is all this really necessary? When did it all get so messy? What happened to including jQuery from a CDN and that was it?

Can someone help this old guy through this messy new world?

I've tried Googling, but there's not much out there saying one way or the other.

Where can I find a Round battery?

Anyone know where I could get a replacement Pebble Round battery? My wife's lasts about 12 hours on a full charge and was in the middle of a warranty claim when the FitBit whohar kicked off.

WYR have telekinetic powers equal to your physical abilities, or have four times your strength?

1Submitted by Izwe - View comments

With telekinetic powers you can do anything mentally that you can do physically, open doors, lift chairs, pull rope.
With four times your strength you look no different but can lift/pull/push four times your ability.

Both abilities can be increased by working out, or decreased by being lazy.
