I’ve only recently come across a keyboard short cut to get a linebreak within a cell using Microsoft Excel which proved to be fairly useful.
A linebreak being carriage return, new line, break, ‘enter’ type of character (now I’m sure someone will correct me and say that they are all different things… but within excel… is it really?) or whatever you want to call it isn’t that hard to do. You can open up notepad/textpad and simply ‘Copy’ and ‘Paste’ the carriage return in excel and it will work, it just isn’t the easiest solution.
So how do you do it? Well depending on if you are using Windows or an Apple machine it is slightly different so find some simple instructions below.
PC \ Windows:
Press ‘Alt‘ + ‘Enter/Return‘
Mac \ Apple:
Press ‘Control‘ + ‘Option/Alt‘ + ‘Enter/Return‘
Just a nice short update. The server tonight will be changing it’s IP address.
Currently it is 220.127.116.11 and is being routed through Melbourne (server is hosted in Sydney). Below is a trace route of the current (soon to be old) IP / route:

The IP change will put the server back within a subnet within Sydney so it should tidy things up a bit. This shouldn’t effect anyone (or only briefly), not unless you are using an IP address to connect to Team Speak.
I’ve also taken this opportunity to add a few more icons and images to the channels to try and stop it looking like every other boring server. I’ll update this post when the new IP has been made available.
The new IP Address of the server is: 22.214.171.124
Also thought I would add the trace route so you can now put everything into context. Huge improvement!

So I’ve discovered a somewhat random youtube channel, and from that channel I ended up discovering a few random videos. Well perhaps the videos on the channel aren’t so random.
The channel: speakeasynyc
Basically the channel is videos of live performances from the Bowery Poetry Club. For more information on the Bowery Poetry Club visit their site: www.bowerypoetrylive.com
The video: I’ve embedded it below, but it is one of many. I thought I would share this one as it makes reference to the digital world we live in today and provokes some thought about how distance from humanity we are becoming.
It is also a different style to poetry which I had in my mind. It is short (a few minutes), entertaining, relevant to today and also engages you on a different level as it is communicated via voice. With out it being conveyed through speach I’m not sure any of the poems would carry as much meaning.
For those who are still not interested, just look at all the popping this guy does during the poem.
