Cooking Dash Sundae Fundae Tip

The episodes in Cooking Dash’s Sundae Fundae can be tedious to play especially when you have to serve two or multiple orders to a customer. The trick is not to pick up orders by individual item but to focus on each customer’s order(s) collectively. I experimented with picking up items individually versus picking them up and putting it on the counter simultaneously and the latter has proven to be more time-efficient. See the video comparison below:

 

However, I do notice the Auto Chef does get my order confused sometimes:

 

Do not prepare the orders in advance, unless you’ve played it too many times and you’re already familiar with the upcoming orders. Still, I find that doing it in that manner confuses Auto Chef and it gives you a different order needlessly.

Needless to say, this tip does apply to all Cooking Dash shows. Sundae Fundae is just one show I made an example of because I’ve had several glitches when it comes to orders involving bananas.

RCBC to GCash Cash-in is Back

Earlier today I got an alert on my iPhone to update my GCash mobile app and that the new update not only includes the RCBC-GCash and BPI-GCash cash-ins but also a list of their over-the-counter partners right within the GCash mobile app.

For a few months registering GCash within the RCBC Online Banking platform had been disabled. It’s a good thing they have brought the feature back. If you access your Globe sim menu and select GCash > Registration by dialing *119#, you will see the option to register your BPI and RCBC accounts. For a refresher, here’s the video for the registration for RCBC:

 

 

How To Send Uncropped Images Via Instagram Direct Message

When I first started sending out group direct messages to my friends on Instagram, I didn’t mind that the images sent via direct messages are partially cut off. That is, until I started to send more images or photos with text on them and the obsessive-compulsive personality in me inwardly protested. I found a workaround for it and it does solve the partially cut off dilemma in most images.

Right within the DM feature when you select a photo, an arrow up button sends the photo. From here it’s obvious you don’t get the whole of the photo uploaded.

Instead of uploading the image directly within the DM platform, an alternative would be to go to the photo feed or the home menu of Instagram and click on the Plus button which serves the same function of uploading photos.

After clicking on upload photo, this is what you would then see on the screen. On the left side is the adjust image button. Just click on it to retain the original size of the photo.

Viewing Public LinkedIn Profiles Even Without A LinkedIn Account

For some time I would think about borrowing a LinkedIn account whenever I encounter a link for a LinkedIn profile in a Google search result. I don’t remember how long it has been since I last had a LinkedIn account; I decided to delete my account there long before I decided to delete the hotmail e-mail address I signed up with it.

Whenever I do a Google search on Safari on my mobile phone, I would not be able to click through on a LinkedIn profile link even though the LinkedIn account is set to public. I used to be able to do this without having an account in the distant past but Google must have altered something in their algorithm. I was doing a search yesterday on an entirely different topic when I stumbled upon a workaround for viewing public LinkedIn profiles even without logging in to your LinkedIn account.

I found out that by doing a search via www.deeperweb.com in lieu of http://www.google.com, I could click through the public LinkedIn profiles and read most of the information listed by the account owner without having to be redirected to the login page as search results clicks from Google.com would have it.

 

Withdrawing Upwork Funds to GCash via PayPal

As I promised in a previous article, here is the video I made for withdrawing Upwork funds to GCash via PayPal. I  have started using PayPal because Skrill will no longer be supported by Upwork as a withdrawal method by April 24, 2017. Withdrawing funds in Upwork to GCash via PayPal is instant. Do not forget to link your PayPal account first with your GCash account. Only one GCash account can be linked to your PayPal account.

Cambiar El Tamaño de Una Imagen a 1 MB desde Camera Roll en iPhone

(Versión española del artículo original)

He encontrado una solución para reajustar imágenes dentro del iPhone para ajustarse al límite de tamaño de archivo en BWS. Ayer traté de enviar un artículo en BWS con un archivo adjunto. Sin embargo, el tamaño del archivo excede de 2 MB. El tamaño máximo permitido es de sólo 1 MB por lo que mi artículo se publicó sin una imagen. No tenía acceso a una computadora portátil. Intenté acceder al sitio PicResize.com en mi iPhone, pero me quedé atrapado en la página de la carga de imágenes. Fue frustrante que no podía usar PicResize ni ningún otro editor de fotos en línea.

Afortunadamente, se me ocurrió una solución más rápida. Lo que resolvió el problema para mí fue los siguientes pasos:

1. Seleccioné la imagen que quería cambiar el tamaño y hice clic en el icono Compartir en la esquina inferior izquierda.

2. Elegí Correo y la envié a mi propio correo electrónico.

3. 1MB equivale a 1.024KB. Elegí Medio y la envié a mi correo electrónico.

Descargé la foto redimensionada al Camera Roll. Volví a BWS para corregir mi artículo y encontré, por fin, la foto recién ajustada a 1MB correctamente.

Este tutorial corto y sencillo funciona si:

– actualmente no tiene acceso a una computadora portátil y sólo tiene un iPhone a mano.

– tu iPhone está en iOS 6.

– la conexión a Internet está muy lenta para acceder a cualquier editor de fotos en línea desde Safari.
