FAQs Can I revoke my cookie consent once it has been given?

FAQs Can I use something from here on my own website?
You should see my copyright policy here
for full details, but the quick answer is tell me what it is and ask me
. If the permission is mine to give, I'll usually give it, so long as I'm suitably credited obviously.
FAQs How can I identify a recording I have?
Go to the main page of either ISIHAC or The News Quiz...
Unfortunately this facility is currently broken. For now, for ISIHAC
shows pick the least played game. You can find a list of all of the games played here
along with descriptions to help identify them. For The News Quiz
use a reader or writer from your recording to narrow down the search. If that fails, for either show, start with the least regular panellist on your recording. That will considerably reduce the number of shows you then need to check manually.
FAQs I can’t find a link back to where I came in.
A few entries have no links to them because they're not relevant to the main purpose of this site. Use your browser's
button to return to the page you came in at, use a keyword or phrase in the navigation bar's search facility to find the item again or reuse the original link that brought you to the site.
FAQs I have a show episode you’re missing. How do I get it to you?
The easiest way is to use the file upload form here
FAQs If I give you my email address, am I going to regret it?
FAQs What do I do if I come across content that I find objectionable?
Stuff I post myself is, I believe, family-friendly. Visitors can post comments freely. So that I don't delay these items they're not usually moderated
. Of course I expect visitors to be sensible and considerate, and not to post inappropriate material. But it could happen. If you come across something that you think is, tell me
. I'll take a look as soon as I can, and where necessary amend or delete it.
FAQs What do I do if I come across something ‘weird’?
This website is constantly changing, so whilst I'm confident that things worked properly when I set them up, it's not totally outside the realms of possibility that something I've later done has had an unforeseen consequence elsewhere. So if you try something, and something weird happens, tell me
, OK? While you're waiting for a response, just carry on as normal. It's unlikely (I hope) that anything you do will seriously break things!
FAQs What powers this site?
It's a WordPress
installation based on the Generic
theme by Bryan Hadaway
. A plugin called Pods
enables customised tailoring specifically for this site while various others provide additional functionality as needed. These plugins change too frequently to maintain accurate details of what is doing what, but you can see a list of those currently in use here
FAQs Which button | key stroke | action blows my computer up?
None. Well, none I've found yet anyway. The site's fairly robust too. And regularly backed up. So the short answer is ... "Try it, see what happens."
[If something DOES blow your computer up, let me know, OK? That would be rather cool!]
FAQs Who owns the copyright to what?
Things generally fall into one of three categories: graphics and text I've created myself; things I've got a licence or the copyright holder's permission to use - e.g. images used in captioned s-t-u-f-f; publicly available graphics - such as product and organisation logos. If it isn't immediately obvious which is which, assume I own the copyright and ask me. (If I don't own it, I'll tell you.) The legalese
regarding copyright can be read here
FAQs Why does this site look ‘weird’?
Although they all basically do the same job, different browsers - of which there are several major
ones in common use - actually render things to your screen in slightly different ways. To complicate things even more, within each type of browser you can usually personalise it quite a lot - for example by making the text size bigger or smaller. If that doesn't make things complicated enough, it also depends on the kind of screen you're trying to view the site on. A wide screen rendering will look quite different from the more traditional 'squarer' terminals, and if you're trying to view in a smartphone app or Blackberry, it will look different again. So with all these variables, it's impossible to predict exactly what you'll see, though I do try to make sure it's something you can live with in most cases. If it isn't, tell me
! Of course, there's always a very small possibility I've just tried to do something that has gone horribly wrong. But if that's the case, I'll already be working on things trying to put them back how they were!
