MAMP PRO Changing php.ini, phpMyAdmin, File Upload Size

I was racking my brain trying to figure out how to edit the php.ini file on MAMP PRO to allow for larger PHP file sizes.  We all know it’s max_file_upload and post_max_size but where to change these values?!

Because MAMP PRO uses templates for it’s config file, we need to change the values in the template as every time the servers restart, it’s current php.ini (as displayed doing a phpinfo() ) gets overwritten.

Enter this handy editor found in the menu structure of MAMP PRO.  Thanks!

$30 Free Uber Ride Promo Code

Update: Uber did originally have promo codes for $20 free, however that expired on April 25th.  However, you can now get a free $30 first ride on Uber using the link below!

Thinking of using Uber for getting around town? Check out the link below for $10 off your first ride! Or, when you sign up or about to take your first ride, enter the promo code: ubersators. 

https://uber.com/invite/ubersators

Follow that up by punching in another promo code MS809 for your first ride in Indianapolis to be free!…but make sure you enter in the ubersators promo code above first.

What is Uber? It’s the taxi of the 21st century – install the app on your smartphone, open it up and see where there are Uber cars closeby to where you need to be picked up, click request and it will summon an Uber car to your location, tell you how long it will be, and show you GPS of the car as it approaches, as well as a picture of the driver!  Not to mention a great use of technology, Uber is also cheaper than a taxi, and much more fun.

Free Up Space in GMail – Search Email by Size

Running low on space in your GMail account?  So was I, until I found this handy search:

size:5m older_than:1y

Tweak the numbers around to fit your inbox, but essentially the above will show you emails larger than 5MB and older than a year.  Select all – to trash, empty trash and spam – that action above took my usage from 90% to 60%.

Sweet.  Thanks Google!

Hulu Plus

Hulu Plus Issue Resolved: The Network Is Down

I recently had an issue with a new BluRay player on my home network that could play everything from Netflix, Amazon Instant Streaming, etc, but every time I would try to play a Hulu Plus video, it would attempt to load and play the video, and then when attempting to play the first video I would get the error “The Network is Down” Retry | Cancel.  It would never work.

Trying to browse through the internet and contact support, I had a revelation…the router on my network (Untangle) has Ad Blocking features enabled.  I love it because it blocks annoying ads on websites from loading…but in this case, it was blocking the servers that Hulu Plus was trying to access to display it’s advertisements.

As a result, I have added my BluRay player’s local network IP address to the ad blocker’s “Pass List” allowing all ad requests to go through, and whala – Hulu Plus now functions as normal.

On a side note, I discovered that using Hulu Plus via my PS3 and the Ad Blocker being enabled allows me to watch completely ad free viewing on Hulu Plus…though hopefully they don’t discover that loophole for a while <fingers crossed>!
