List of significant Flattr users

It’s not particularly easy to find information about who it is that are using Flattr, and which ones that are still using it to this day. So here is such a list, complete with the otherwise deprecated recurring donation buttons, based on my own personal experiences with being a Flattr donor.

How to create a Flattr auto-donation link

So you may possibly have begun to use Flattr, or are at least curious as to how it works. In its current incarnation it automatically measures which internet contents you’re making use of, and Flattrs them roughly accordingly.

But wait a minute, wasn’t there a button at some kind of site that allowed for double-pressing, which has set up recurring automatic monthly Flattrs to that user? Where did those buttons go?

How to access Disney.com from abroad and worldwide

Have you ever lived outside of America, and have been pissed off that you haven’t been able to access Disney’s American websites since 2013? Don’t despair anymore, because I’ve found the solution.

All you have to do is to add /?intoverride=true to the URL you’re trying to access.

Prominent example links:
• http://www.disney.com/?intoverride=true
• http://fairies.disney.com/?intoverride=true
• http://movies.disney.com/?intoverride=true

As far as I can determine, only visiting one /?intoverride=true link will add a cookie to your browser that makes all American URLs (even those without the tag) load the American website versions from then on. Which is a very good thing, if there’s any doubts about it.

This has been tested from Norway with a Norwegian IP address, and I have every reason to think that this will work in virtually every other country on planet Earth as well.

And you’ve found yourself wondering, “Is it time for me to invest in a bigger hard disk?”. However, you can possibly be able to hold off the purchase for another while, since chances are that a considerable percentage of your hard disk is currently filled with practically meaningless caches, temp files and fallback files, that can reach into the tens of gigabytes on many systems.

In this article, I’ll cite all the culprits that I am able to remember from memory, after having undergone a deep cleaning process a few days ago.
