Engineering News, Heating Oil and Lubricants on The Daily Engineer website

Engineering News, Heating Oil and Lubricants on The Daily Engineer website

This is one of the larger web projects where I was involved.

Not only have I worked on this engineering news website but I also worked on the lubricants website that was there in the first place. Eventually we just ran the engineering news on the lubricants URL. And then we added videos, blogs, podcasts, ecommerce shops and many other areas to the engineering website.

The website has plenty of information about industrial lubricants and also heating oil for domestic purposes. In fact we have great web positions for both lubricants and heating oil.

Looking for home heating oil or industrial lubricants? To find or purchase lubricants or to buy heating oil just visit www.lubricants.co.uk

Looking for UK engineering news? BTW, I think it’s probably one of the best engineering news websites that I have ever worked on. The Daily Engineer is an engineering news website that has News, Videos and Shops for the UK engineering community.

So if you ever want to know what an 80K website can provide in the way of news about UK engineering, heating oil, lubricants and many other industrial products and services, have a look at the website.

Buying land abroad

September 24th, 2010

Through my web design company I’ve recently done a job for a company that offer land buying services in some of the warmer and more attractive parts of the planet. If you’re interested in the procuring of prime plots—and the development of modern bespoke villas in the Caribbean or the Cayman Islands—you will find the links below very useful.

The three main options are:

How to convert WMV to FLV on a Mac without installing extra software

November 5th, 2009

I’m on Flash CS4 and it seems on a Mac (probably due to a licensing problem) the media encoder won’t accept .wmv. There is extra software you can buy to do a direct convert but there is a free way you can do it with the software that comes on your Mac.

It requires that you have a version of OS X with iMovie HD (I’m on Leopard and it works fine).

Simply start a new project in iMovie, import your .wmv and then go to Share > Share…

Choose Quicktime and then Expert Settings then Share. Now you are essentially converting the file to a .mov which the Flash Media Encoder has no problem with. If you choose Options… and then Settings under video you can choose the setting for the export.

Once you have your .mov file simply encode as normal.

SQL to delete all post revisions in WordPress

April 16th, 2009

If you want to trim down your WordPress database here’s a MySQL query you can use to do so.

DELETE FROM wp_posts WHERE post_type = ‘revision’

If it doesn’t work, check your table name.
