For users who had disabled or turned off post revisions tracking or versions history feature in WordPress (added since WordPress 2.6), it is also made sense to delete and remove all existing stored post revisions and changes made on pages stored in the database in order to reduce the wp_posts table size, especially when there is already tons of revisions or changes been kept.
To delete and remove all existing post revisions entries and rows from WordPress database Posts table, simply login to MySQL command-line interface, phpMyAdmin, SQLyog or other MySQL GUI tools. Select the appropriate WordPress [...]
Android: The desktop version of Trillian Astra won (however fudgingly) our Hive Five for best desktop IM client, and now you can get the same polished, account-syncing, tabbed-messaging IM client on your Android phone.
Trillian has been out on the iPhone for a little while now, but unlike the iPhone, Android doesn’t have a feature-packed, over-the-top awesome IM client like Beejive to compete with it. Even in beta, Trillian brings a few things to the table that currently-number-one eBuddy has yet to implement, so its release is exciting for IM-hungry smartphone users.
The first and best [...]
Do you like to decorate your home with lots of black drapes and black lights? Maybe with a disco ball and a fog machine? Well, have I got the pool table for you.
The Cavicchi Millennium Billiards Table looks straight out of a strip club set in a sci-fi movie, complete with unnecessary angles and a strip of LED lights that goes all the way around it. Sure, having the edges jut out so far from the playing surface itself will make playing actual pool more difficult, but who cares about stuff like that when it’s just so terrible looking?
If you buy a Tivoli radio, chances are all you want is a stylish table radio that just performs extremely well. But if you’ve owned one for a while, you may lament its lack of conveniences like a clock, an alarm or a display that tells you the song playing. Then you might want the Model 10.
Although much of the touch screen attention has been focused on Apple’s iPad, one group hailing from the Ecole des Gobelins school in Paris has come up with a singularly unique, touch-based, interactive teaching tool for children. Dubbed the MÜ, the table is designed for children 5 to 6 years old and allows them to collectively interact via fairy tales and games.
In addition to the installation’s touch capabilities, the MÜ table also includes RFID enabled objects. You can see video of the MÜ in action here.
Who uses a stylus anymore? I guess it still makes sense in certain instances — like with a Nintendo DS — but all in all I find them cumbersome.
Microsoft thinks you still want to use them, though, and makes a pretty good case for why. Remember the Surface? It’s Microsoft’s tablet-sized tablet, and the company is showing off its Manual Deskerity system, which sounds like a dream come true for architects, designers and the like.
Manual Deskerity doesn’t rely on just one way to interact with it via touch. Instead, you use your fingers, a stylus and even voice and gesture controls [...]
The Light Beam coffee table is packed with thousands of little LED lights, lights that are able to have their colors changed on the fly. Made of reclaimed teak packed in resin, it was apparently inspired by railway sleepers. But to me it just looks like a table from the future, if in the future we want our tables to be the center of attention in whatever room they’ve been placed in.
There’s no word on pricing or ordering information, unfortunately.

Getting kids to eat food that’s good for them is never easy, but what if those Brussels sprouts actually looked like solid gold nuggets? That’s the thinking behind Esslack, an edible food paint from Germany. You simply spray it onto whatever chow you want add some bling to, and it suddenly looks like a gilded table decoration. Of course you’ll probably want an equally fancy table to complete the look.
Available in both silver and gold, this looks like a great idea if you have fussy kids, even though the effect might not work more than once.

If you want to feel like you’re having dinner in some sort of futuristic space station, this LED table should do the trick. Featuring 278 white LEDs spread across the safety glass surface of the table, it’s pretty amazing.
Of course, for $23,175, I’d hope it’d be amazing. But hey, nobody said living in the future would be cheap.
