"Depending on the client, if the current URL can be made to permanently redirect to the new URL the client should be able to pick up and use the new URL from then on. This is something that you'd have to experiment with and try out." - Stuart Woodward

"When you take it to the Apple Store the first thing they are going to do is to run the diagnostics on it: See https://support.apple.com/en-za... When I went with a battery problem they could see that that there was a problem with one of the sensors in the battery and changed the battery immediately for me." - Stuart Woodward
stuartcw on Booked a flight to Tokyo for 4/4 - 4/13 - only to find that almost all hotels are fully booked. What's going on in Tokyo? - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Try booking.com reserve a room somewhere and then cancel it if you find a better one on the site. Once you have a place try again at regular intervals to try and get better one. Or also consider Airbnb it hasn't really taken off with Japanese people yet but there do seem to be quite a lot of people with places to rent." - Stuart Woodward
stuartcw on Moving to Japan. Please help me find a team to root for in Kyushu! - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"..oh! And don't forget to go early. The cheerleaders and team lineup announcement, warmup start about an hour before the kick-off. Make sure you are seated for that. Usually there is better food and drink outside the stadium along with local performances and stuff for kids. So leave time for that. Beer is also sold inside the stadium. Cans are not allowed in the stadium but you can pour them into paper cups at the gate if you declare them" - Stuart Woodward

"If you want go J1 matches then definitely Tosu. It's nice stadium not too far from the station. Make sure that you buy a 自由席 (free seat) and you can get close to active supporters who will be singing, jumping and waving flags for 90 mins. The J2 teams are well supported too and J2 matches tend to be more high paced exciting football than J1. If you just going occasionally, then check out the stadium and try to chose one without a running track to be closer to action." - Stuart Woodward

"**The Longest Cave** – by Roger W. Brucker , Professor Richard A. Watson Ph.D. > “The Longest Cave makes the reader get down on hands and knees, to crawl through the tight spots and the false leads and the boulder slides. But somewhere in the rocks and mud under central Kentucky, the reader becomes self-reliant, begins crawling around the next twist of cave, begins to care. . . This spare and underwritten book is a primer in self-reliance and self-worth.”—The New York Times **An Island to Oneself** – by Tom Neale > Thomas Francis "Tom" Neale (November 6, 1902 - November 27, 1977) was a New Zealander bushcraft and survival enthusiast who spent much of his life in the Cook Islands and 16 years in three sessions living alone on the island of Anchorage in the Suwarrow atoll, which was the basis of this autobiography." - Stuart Woodward
stuartcw on The Firebombing of Tokyo. 70 Years ago today 100,000 people were killed in a single air raid. Yet barely anybody knows the deadliest day in world history even happened. - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"I talked to an old chap once. I think he had waited for all his life to talk to a foreigner about what he had saw in the firebombings and we just happened to be in neighbouring hospital beds. He said that so many people drowned in the rivers jumping in to escape the flames. As a result huge numbers of fish were attracted to the bodies and the people were able to catch them and feast on them. Everyone knew that the fish had eaten the dead but they were grateful of the food even though they felt guilty. A family I knew had packed up their wooden shop and carted it out into the countryside before the raids. I saw a fantastic sushi shop counter now in a second house in the woods of Karuizawa that was saved from being immolated in the Tokyo fires." - Stuart Woodward

stuartcw on Best way to look up Kanji from a novel. - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"This works for me. * Pay for the app "Japanese" for iOS. * Create a folder and label it with the name of the novel. * Create a word list and label it with the chapter number. * Each time you come across a word that you don't know, look it up with handwriting input search or the by radical. If you don't know how to look up by radical that is your first task. * Save the word to the word list for that chapter. If you have already looked it up before, you should be able to see which chapter it occurred in as that chapter's list will have a tick mark (✓) next to it. * Use the word lists to review the vocab you learned in each chapter using the Study feature. * .... * profit." - Stuart Woodward
stuartcw on Best way to look up Kanji from a novel. - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Actually kids novels sometimes have so few Kanji that all the words just run into each other. If you have already got good spoken language, like a kid, then by just reading aloud you'll catch the words. However, if you are still learning the language Kanji are easier on the eyes as you can make out the words breaks easier. Also watch out for kids words which are generally not taught to adult learners but ever kid knows." - Stuart Woodward
stuartcw on After visiting liveleak, my mac has randomly started saying the word "Donkey", in a male robotic voice. - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Was that something that you, or someone who manages the machine put there? If not, it's either placed there by some software that you installed or was placed there by something strange. Try commenting it out.." - Stuart Woodward
stuartcw on How far is to far from the train station? - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"The distance from the station is not always the major contributing criteria for desirability. Near to a supermarket, kindergarten, school, choice of eating places could appeal to some renters even if the walk to the station is a trek. Obviously, the further it is away, the parking spaces do factor into the choice more. Having 2 parking spaces might make it super desirable to someone one who has a hobby car for instance." - Stuart Woodward

stuartcw on TIL that in 1985 Phil Collins first performed at the Live Aid concert at Wembley (UK), 5 hours later he joined the Live Aid concert in Philadelphia (US) at the same local time as in London, thanks to the Concorde. - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"TIL that if you remember watching Phil Collins playing at both Live Aids you are probably over 40." - Stuart Woodward
stuartcw on After visiting liveleak, my mac has randomly started saying the word "Donkey", in a male robotic voice. - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"If you can execute arbitrary code via a vulnerability you can install code on the machine to do anything you like. A cronjob that runs a script to execute the command line command "say donkey" is probably the least malicious thing that you could do. Adding a little randomness to the chance of it executing would be more effective in provoking sanity loss. That machine is now tragically compromised and probably should be reformatted and restored back to a backup before the fateful day that it made an ass of itself." - Stuart Woodward
stuartcw on Trying to Learn SNMP and it's implementation - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"* Install SNMP on your own computer and get it running. * Using snmpget, practice getting some values from the standard MIB like the System Name, Uptime. etc. If these are not working, then it nothing will. This is what you do when when debugging connectivity etc. * Look at the traffic on the wire with Wireshark and see how it relates to the SNMP spec. * Try finding something to set. Maybe you can ask the device to reboot or clear some of it's data. Oh, heres a good time to consider security. Note how you can see the password in plain text if you sniff the traffic with Wireshark if you use some of the earlier protocols. If you can see it so can everyone else. * Look at the standard MIB for network related information and learn how to get a table of information. * Download and take a look at some fancy MIBs for exotic devices and see what they are exposing. * Learn about traps. I guess "link up"/"link down" traps are probably the easiest to provoke. You could try taping over the air..." - Stuart Woodward

stuartcw on Question:.. any way to print a large high-quality Portal Map of my town ? - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"No, but I was only half serious. Tokyo is massive and there are portals every 100m in some places I walk. If you just rode on the Yamanote line and got off at every station you could rack up serious points in a day. I think the best way is to get a pocket map book and mark them on yourself." - Stuart Woodward

"Is the data going to be freely available to the clubs as a service of the league? Or will they have to subscribe to it? I guess that they have to cooperate to facilitate it at every match..." - Stuart Woodward

"Can anyone shed some light on how this actually helps to improve the overall level of the competition apart from providing eye candy for the TV coverage that gets in the way of viewing the match and providing dubious comparisons for the commentators? I think good football is like obscenity, it's difficult to define quantitatively but [you know it when you see it](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki...)." - Stuart Woodward
