Force Refresh the iOS App Store by Tapping the Tab Bar 10 Times

Force Refresh the iOS App Store by Tapping the Tab Bar 10 Times

Every once in a while, the App Store seems to glitch out and get stuck either not properly updating or not showing new updates correctly. Over on Twitter, Zachary Drayer points out that you can force reload everything in the app by tapping an icon on the tab bar 10 times.

All you need to do is tap any of the five menu items at the bottom of the App Store screen 10 times in a row (you’ll need to tap the same one 10 times). When you do that, you’ll see the screen briefly go blank and reload everything. If updates aren’t properly showing or if something’s stuck, it’s a good way to try and get things moving again.

We’re still hearing tons of complaints from “social justice” types over the death of Tamir Rice. They seem to think that a 5’7″ 195 lbs figure, his face obscured by a hoodie, should be able […]

SQL Games

I have just created a GitHub repository called sql_games. It contains games implemented as stored procedures, that can run on MariaDB or (with some changes) on Percona Server or Oracle MySQL.
You play the games via the command-line client. You call a procedure to make your move, then a text or an ASCII image appears.
Of course the same call should produce a different effect, depending on the game’s current state. To remember the state I use both user variables and temporary tables.
Why did I do that? Mainly because it was funny. I can’t explain why. And I can’t tell that it is funny for anyone: perhaps, where I’ve found interesting challenges, someone else would find a cause a frustration. But yes, it has been funny for me.
Also, I did it because I could. This means that others can do it. Stored procedures are not a useless and nasty feature that users should ignore – they are useful tools. Yes, several times I’ve complained that they need important improvements. But I complain because I like them.
Currently, three games are implemented:
Anagram – The anagram game. See a randomly generated anagram and try to guess the word. You can choose a language, and a min/max word length.
Bulls And Cows – If you don’t know the game, take a look at the Wikipedia page.
Hangman –  Try to guess letters and see an ASCII hangman materializing slowly while you fail.
Each game will be installed in a different database. CALL help() in the proper database to see how to play.

The New X-Files Featurette Reveals New Monsters

The New X-Files Featurette Reveals New Monsters

As a teaser for the X-Files revival, which premieres January 24, Fox has put a 21-minute featurette online called “Re-Opened” which gives a primer on the original series for new viewers and a tantalizing look at the six new episodes for the old fans.

Not everything is new. For example, we knew that the first and last episodes of the revival are mythology episodes and the middle four are standalone episodes. Although we now know that the reason both episode one and six are called “My Struggle” is because the first one is about Mulder’s struggle and the last about Scully’s. We also hear that they play with the original mythology for the show and will explain how the Cigarette Smoking Man could appear in the revival after what looked like his demise at the end of the original run.

There’s a ton of new footage in this. Four people on fire, Mulder flung down a hallway, a teary Scully promising to be by Mulder’s side, a description of a horned beast attack, a lizard creature running away from the FBI… there’s a lot here.
