We're not encouraging anyone to do drugs, but we're also not going to pretend that our readers don't do any. If you do and have to, say, take a drug test for a job, it may be helpful to know how long certain drugs stay in the places they're most likely to check: your urine, blood and hair follicles.
Dear Lifehacker, My father started a family-owned business from the ground up in 1999. We had a customer that owes us a lot of money but has gone bankrupt. My father spent years building this business and I'd hate to see him lose the money he has earned. It broke my heart when he told me there was nothing that can be done. Surely there is something we can do to get what we're owed? I do not want to believe there is nothing that can be done.
Late last week, the commissioner of the Australian Federal Police revealed that an officer has accessed the personal metadata of an Australian journalist as part of an investigation into that reporter’s sources for a story about the AFP. While Commissioner Colvin put it down to "human error” there is far more to this. What we have seen in this specific case is a complete breakdown of the protections we deserve as private citizens.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is Samsung's first big phone launch after last year's Note7 disaster. It's a huge moment for the world's most popular smartphone manufacturer. For a lot of everyday smartphone buyers - the talkback radio listeners and tabloid newspaper readers of the world - Samsung is a tarnished name. The Galaxy S8 is the first, and potentially only, chance for the company to change that opinion. Here's how it fared during our in-depth testing.
While many of the jobs done by system admins is now automated or simplified through GUIs, wizards and other graphical tools, there are times when you still need to get down and dirty, entering information on a command line. If nothing else, it’s often faster to type a string of commands and options that shuffle through a bunch of screens, hitting a “next” button. PuTTY has been an essential tool of admins for years. And it’s just been upgraded to Version 0.69. At this rate, it could reach version 1.0 by the time I’m retired.
Google Classroom is now available to everyone with a Google account - not just those with gSuite for Education accounts. That means that, as well as enrolling and participating in classes, anyone can now create online courses.
OzHarvest Market is a Sydney-based "rescued food" supermarket that invites customers to pay what they can - even if that's nothing at all. The business follows a "take what you need, give if you can" model, with all money reinvested back into the charity.
Earlier today, we paid a visit to OzHarvest's flagship store to check out what was on offer. The sheer variety of supermarket goods on display astounded us. Here are the pictures.
I don't know about you, but my world has been a little more stressful since... say, last November. Even without the continuous news updates — and the time I spend reading them, along with the various Twitter threads that try to game theorise them — I've got a lot to manage and balance in my life: I work part-time as an editor, my debut novel comes out this May, I'm completing assignments for a number of freelance writing clients, I teach writing classes and I'm a volunteer tutor. (And that's just the work stuff.)
Earmarked the Galaxy S8 as your new phone and want to do something more exciting to stand out than fiddling with the Bixby button? You could always crack out the industrial solvents and make the thing transparent, as demonstrated by this video from JerryRigEverything.
It was once the case that if you wanted to do serious video editing, your choices were limited. Outside of expensive commercial options from the likes of Sony and Adobe, you'd have to make do with Windows Movie Maker... or worse. These days, free options abound. The hardest part is actually picking one.
