How-To disable AMP on your WordPress.com website

I have grown an aversion to Google AMP. Playing with the new template I saw that when it was made available here on the WordPress.com platform I’ve enabled it.

Since I manage my blog/website in the ‘old school’ way I could not find anywhere over the Dashboard a setting to disable it. A quick search on the official support forum gave me the answer, simply point your browser to:

https:// wordpress.com/settings/traffic/ $YOURSITE.wordpress.com

…and you’ll be propted with the new WordPress.com interface (still under development) and the option to enable/disable this AMP technology…

macOS ‘Sierra’: how-to set a POP3 email account in Mail.app

Did you notice? On macOS 10.12 ‘Sierra’, when you try to add a new email account with Mail.app using the guided procedure it seems that you can only have an IMAP one…

Of course you can still have a POP3 account but, like it’s in Apple style in those last years, you have to use a gimnik to achieve the result [if you’re not going Apple-way-of-doing-things be prepared to this].

So let’s see how to do this. Open Mail.app and go to its Preferences, here point to the Account section and try adding a new account… make sure to give a wrong password on pourpose when asked:

Sierra add email account 01(My System is set with Italian, so forgive me the language)

After some work behind the scenes, the procedure will say that something is wrong and will ask some more details for this brand new account we’re setting up. As you can see in the following screenshot some more fields to fill will appear, along with a courtain asking the “Account type” we want to set up: IMAP or POP3

Sierra add email account 02That’s it… all we have to do now is to put the correct valule for the POP3 incoming email server and the correct password!
Hope this can be of help to someone…

How to Use iMessage (to Annoy the Hell Out of Your Friends)

Rickroll Your Friends With Apple Music Integration


Step 1: Make sure you own Rick Astley’s classic “Never Gonna Give You Up.” (But why would you not already own Rick Astley’s classic “Never Gonna Give You Up”?)

Step 2: Send the song to all your friends via Apple Music in iTunes. Step 3: Repeat until you have absolutely no friends left who will respond to your text messages.

This has made me LOL very hard. [via →]
