• json API examples

    Are you looking for working API examples for the website to work with WordPress, then look no further.

    Firstly you will need to install a plugin called “JSON content importer” by Bernhard Kux once installed you can use the following examples i use on my website.

    This first example pulls end of life dates for Windows (code below) into a nice looking table.

    <th>Home &amp; Pro EOL
    <th>Enterprise / Education EOL
    [jsoncontentimporter url=""]
    <!-- add debugmode=10 to above for debugging -->

    In this next example it pulls Android versions and EOL details.

    <th>Version No
    <th>Version Name
    [jsoncontentimporter url=""]

    Don’t forget to add something like “Data provided by” at the end of your pull.

    If you have any comments about any of the above please fill in our form on the support page.

  • BT Digital Voice

    BT announced some time ago about discontinuing land line services to homes, what this means for you is the physical connection you currently have is being switched over to a digital one using your BT Broadband router. You can keep your existing telephone number, its will just operate over the internet instead of over copper cables.

    You’ll also be able to use your existing equipment “Cordless Phones” by plugging the master base unit into the telephone port on the back of your new BT router. If you have multiple phones, then you may require additional “Digital Voice Adapters” (please contact us if you need help with this)

    Things to bear in mind once you’ve switched to “BT Digital Voice”:

    • you wont be able to use it for emergency calls (during a power outage, or broadband outage / problems)
    • If you have a monitored alarm that’s connected to your landline (like a health pendant or monitored burglar alarm) you’ll need to speak to your providers before moving to Digital Voice (you will need a different service, your provider can help you with this, or give us a call for advice)

    Please contact us If you need any help.

    Further Help and information can be found here

    The ‘”Digital Voice” help guide can be found here.

    • New Life For an Old Computer

      Have you got an old computer or laptop that is starting to get a bit slow and you are thinking of throwing it out in favour for a newer model? Well stop and read on.

      We have found that we can breathe new life into old desktops and laptop computers by installing Linux or Ubuntu that is less processor and memory hungry.

      Once installed you can then download programs like Open Office for letter writing and Mozilla Firefox for internet browsing. There are loads of free programs that will work on Linux / Ubuntu, just do a search in Google.

      • Ubuntu can be obtained from Here
      • Mozilla Firefox from Here
      • Open Office from Here
      • Gimp Photo Editing Program for ubuntu from Here
      • Thunderbird Email from Here
      • Need a Media Centre Program get it Here
      • Need to edit Video Try Cinlerra Here
      • Play Music using amaroK get it from Here

      So as you can see you dont need to stick with Windows to get things done.

    • PCI DSS Compliance

      We at the IT Guru Ltd take your security very seriously and as such we have completed the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) validation process, and have enrolled in Trustwave’s Trusted Commerce Program to validate our compliance.

    • Problems Removing .NET

      I had major problems trying to remove .NET 2.0 it did not show up in add remove programs, and I could not uninstall it using the Windows Cleanup Utility.

      I tried this utility to remove .NET 2.0 and it worked perfectly and allowed me to reinstall .NET 2.0, however this utility should be used in extreme cases and should only be used when all other methods have failed. It also works with the following versions 1, 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.5, 4

      Use with caution, we accept no liability for its use.

      You can download it from here
