The same guy who created the ever-crazy Super Mario 64 Online last year - which Nintendo quickly hit with the copyright hammer - is back with a brand-new creation. This time, he's taken the world of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and stuffed it full of Super Mario 64 characters. Before Nintendo's lawyers grab their Super Stars and come running over to stop him, here's how you can play Emanuar's mega-mashup for free.

Instagram is like that friend that tells you they'll be at the party and then they sort of just rock up late in the night unnoticed, while everyone is already off having their fun. Wanting to get in on the portrait mode phenomenon, they've just released a background-blurring mode they call Focus.

Here's how to get Instagram's new 'Focus' Feature.

You check into your hotel after a hard day of travelling. All you want to do is kick off your shoes, set the temperature to whatever hot or cold extreme you wouldn't be able to get away with at home, and say hello to your Netflix queue before some much-earned rest. And then you realise the terrible truth: Your Wi-Fi connection is horrible or, worse, non-existent.

I am the absolute worst at this. I know I have to go to bed at a reasonable time, but when lights-out time hits, there I am: on the computer, on my tablet, or on my smartphone, usually doing another lap of YouTube/Facebook/Instagram/Twitter just to make sure I didn't miss anything.

Homemade pizza nerds are a passionate bunch; for a timid novice, the sheer amount of conflicting information available on various pizza-enthusiast boards is anything but encouraging. I'm here to tell you that you don't need to build a backyard brick oven or even buy a stone to make great pizza - in fact, you probably already have everything you need.

Algorithmic feeds, how I loathe thee. I hate Twitter's, minor as it is. I hate Facebook's, because I just want a simple chronological News Feed. And I hate Instagram's, because its Explore tab can fill up with all sorts of weird shit that the service thinks I should like. There's not that much you can to do get a handle on the ever-unruly Explore, but you have a few options.

Facebook is kind of a mess right now. And there are plenty of equally messy reaction pieces cajoling you and everyone you know, to delete your account in a massive middle finger to the web's prevailing social network. That's the easy take and, honestly, we've experienced this mob response before. Did you #DeleteFacebook then? Me neither.

Broadway superstars Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt dropped a bomb for theatre geeks early this morning, remixing two songs from their always-sold-out musicals into a lovely duet you can purchase or stream for free across a number of different online services, like YouTube.

As Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen fans burn through their data plans putting this hot track on loop, it's a great time to revisit all the different ways you can save YouTube content offline for obsessively watching later.
