3.0 out of 5 stars Not Directly or Immediately Useful for WordPress, 20 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Depends what you want to do with PHP. I found, after having bought this book, that what I really wanted was a thorough breakdown of how WordPress works and what the various WP PHP files do and how they actually work together. I'm sure that this book would help with that and I am also sure that a true PHP guru wouldn't even need WordPress anyway. But all I want is something that gives me a better understanding so that I can confidently tweak WordPress and get on with my main job of producing content for ourlife.co.uk.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good All Round and Very Warm, 20 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At first I wondered why it fits with such a gap above your head. Well that's because that is warmer with an air gap, I guess. Folded down it does come a little low down on my face but doesn't cover my eyes. I am not sure why the peak needs to be fur-lined either. But this is a seriously warm hat, it does have a peak, which I like, to keep both the sun and rain off of my face.Not a bad price either.

This works no problems. This is the cheaper way to have a 64GB pocket sized drive than a more expensive flash drive.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm still reading this but having got a third of the way through it I am very impressed. It contains a lot of quotes from soldiers, on both sides, that were in Burma during the second world war and, importantly, it gives little bio sketches of many of the key participants. This is my sort of book. I really am not interested in the high level politics and strategies per se, only as they help form part of the overall story. Fergal Keene has got the balance, between personal accounts, the overall plot and high-level decision making, just right

5.0 out of 5 stars Actually works on Windows 10. Hooray!, 19 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Actually works on Windows 10. Hooray! I had a USB floppy before that wasn't very good.I managed to lose it anyway, I guess someone "borrowed" it at work.I bought this one from Amazon seller eSynic and it arrived in three days. To "see" the drive go to Control Panel > Devices and Printers and it will be in the Devices list. Right click on it and select View Files.It then opens up a Windows Explorer for the A: drive. Anyway, I wanted to use it with DosBox to run my old Doom and Doom2 games. All works fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice and bright without glareing, 11 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice and bright without glareing. Sort of frosted appearence. Warm white is best. "Clear white" is a bit blueish and not like standard electric bulbs (or even candles!) These are warm white. Does give the equivalent to a 100w standard bulb, which is what it replaces, so if it lasts a long time too then is is going to be well worth the cost. I am waiting for these to come out in dimmable too. I got a couple of similar in 12w which are dimmable, so I can wait a whiles for these 16w now. Nice quick delivery by the way too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eye Opening, 12 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a really useful book. I got started on the American Dustbowl problem in the 1930s by reading John Steinbecks the Grapes of Wrath. The worst Hard Time covers the era and includes lots of anecdotal contributions as well as what Franklin D Roosevelt was doing to help the problem. It gives details of why the problem arose in the first place and the history of the great planes them selves.
