Trello classic label colours v2.0.0

I have updated my Trello classic label colours CSS hack using the Stylish extension for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

You can find the updates on my GitHub:

I have removed this style from Userstyles.org as it was throwing unknown errors or claiming that the CSS had an error every time I tried to upload changes.

I’ve written a Stylish CSS script that restores the classic Trello label colours after they were recently updated to a colour palette that genuinely makes me feel miserable looking at them.

You can use this example Trello board with all the labels to test if the Stylish script is working for you.

Windows Defender got stuck!

All is quiet on the Windows front

For the last few weeks, I’ve been getting a daily email from Microsoft Defender telling me about a threat it had found on my desktop PC.

Only, I’d already deleted the offending files manually, but Defender got stuck—thinking they were still there, but unable to find them to remove them.

Here’s how I eventually fixed it.

XAMPP Apache won’t start on Windows 10 — a fix

At work yesterday I discovered that the localhost Apache web server on my PC wouldn’t start; it was running XAMPP.

Each time I tried to start Apache from the XAMPP control panel I got these error messages in the console:

08:59:34 [Apache] Attempting to start Apache app…
08:59:35 [Apache] Status change detected: running
08:59:35 [Apache] Status change detected: stopped
08:59:35 [Apache] Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly.
08:59:35 [Apache] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,
08:59:35 [Apache] improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
08:59:35 [Apache] Press the Logs button to view error logs and check
08:59:35 [Apache] the Windows Event Viewer for more clues
08:59:35 [Apache] If you need more help, copy and post this
08:59:35 [Apache] entire log window on the forums

Fix

Reinstalling XAMPP didn’t fix the issue. But this did, spotted on the ever-wonderful Stackoverflow:

  1. Press Windows + R to bring up the Windows Run… dialog.
  2. Type services.msc and click OK.
  3. Scroll down the list of services to find World Wide Web Publishing Service.
  4. Right-click it and select Properties.
  5. Change the Startup type to Manual.
  6. Click Stop and wait for the service to stop.
  7. Click OK.

This is the naughty culprit

That fixed it. Now Apache is running, as evidenced by the green light on the XAMPP control panel:
