Gray Matter


Gray MatterGray matter refers to certain parts of the human anatomy. It’s present in the brain, brain stem and cerebellum, and throughout the spinal cord.

A walnut when cracked open, looks a lot like the top view of a human brain. It contains omega-3 fatty acids, which help support brain functions.

Below are the latest 10 posts featuring ideas that have leaked from my own gray matter at one time or another.

RT Cunningham | August 4, 2020 (UTC) | Blogging, Web Development

I ask this question about comments and comment systems more for myself than anyone else. You see, people rarely post comments for any post on any of my websites. When they do, there's a chance that it will be pure comment spam. In the end, I think I'd rather have no comments than "iffy" comments.

Politically Correct Nonsense and Native Americans

RT Cunningham | August 4, 2020 (UTC) | Culture

I'm not a politically correct person and I never will be. I believe in calling things what they actually are, not something contrived. Although I've been accused of being a racist and a bigot at times, it's not true but it doesn't matter. I'm not running for public office.

Bikinis in the Philippines are Rarely Seen

RT Cunningham | August 4, 2020 (UTC) | Culture

Take a look at the picture I'm sharing. You won't see bikinis that even remotely look like the one in the picture at most beaches in the Philippines. It's most likely a thong bikini.

Removing Scratches from Plastic Display Pieces

RT Cunningham | August 4, 2020 (UTC) | House and Home

Way back in March 2010, I received an interesting e-mail message. A microwave oven service person scratched the plastic on the control panel of a customer's microwave oven while cleaning it.

Red Cement, One of Many Cement Colors

RT Cunningham | August 4, 2020 (UTC) | House and Home

Everyone's familiar with the traditional gray-colored cement. It's the color of sidewalks as well as driveways, carports and patios where no further finishing has taken place. So far, I've seen that color as well as red and white while living in the Philippines.

Prevent Direct Access to a PHP File

RT Cunningham | August 3, 2020 (UTC) | Web Development

Over the years, I've seen many ways to prevent direct access to a PHP file. I'm going to show you some of them. Certain applications have their own way of preventing direct access but it's totally unnecessary when instructions for doing it at the web server exist.

Street Food in Olongapo, Philippines

RT Cunningham | August 3, 2020 (UTC) | Food and Drink

Despite what you may hear from other foreigners, some street food in Olongapo is as good as what you would find at any American backyard barbecue. I'm being generous. There's probably more food to avoid than not.
