What Is To Be Done?

Set the homepage of your browser to http://system.sangkrit.net for making websites and start helping

Migrating Multiple Blogs To WordPress Multisite

  • Export content of your existing WordPress installations from Dashboard=> Tools=> Export
  • Install WordPress
  • Activate Multisite by adding define(‘WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, true); in your wp-config.php
  • Open Dashboard of your new WordPress installation.
  • Open Tool=> Network Setup from Dashboard and do as directed.
  • Create blog for each site you like to import.
  • Import each site’s content you exported from old installations from Dashboard=> Tools=> Import
  • Install all themes and plugins of your old site if you like and network activate them.
  • If your old installations have their own domain names then Map domains to your main site using MU Domain Mapping

Embedding RSS Feed In Your WordPress Posts And Pages

Open Your themes function.php and add the following code at the bottom:

include_once(ABSPATH.WPINC.’/rss.php’);

function readRss($atts) {
extract(shortcode_atts(array(
“feed” => ‘http://‘,
“num” => ‘1’,
), $atts));

return wp_rss($feed, $num);
}

add_shortcode(‘rss’, ‘readRss’);

Save function.php and whenever you need to embed RSS in any of your post or page write the following short code inside your post:

[ rss feed=”http://sangkrit.net/feed” num=”5″ ]

In the above give short code replace http://sangkrit.net/feed with your feed address and in num=5 replace 5 with the number of posts you like to show.

Note: Remember there is no space between [ and rss feed and num=”5″  and  so after you copy the short code; check the space, remove it (if there is some space) and then publish it.

Network Monitoring With Etherape

EtherApe is a graphical utility that allows you to see in real-time where connections are being made on your network, or between your network or computer and the Internet. If you are experiencing unexpected network activity on your computer or LAN and wish to see where the activity is occurring. Both “local” user and “root user” installations are created; in general you must use the root user installation to see all your network traffic.

sudo apt-get install etherape

Features:

  • Network traffic is displayed graphically. The more “talkative” a node is, the bigger its representation.
  • Node and link color shows the most used protocol.
  • User may select what level of the protocol stack to concentrate on.
  • You may either look at traffic within your network, end to end IP, or even port to port TCP.
  • Data can be captured “off the wire” from a live network connection, or read from a tcpdump capture file.
  • Live data can be read from ethernet, FDDI, PPP, SLIP and WLAN interfaces, plus several other incapsulated formats (e.g. Linux cooked, PPI).
  • The following frame and packet types are currently supported: ETH_II, 802.2, 803.3, IP, IPv6, ARP, X25L3, REVARP, ATALK, AARP, IPX, VINES, TRAIN, LOOP, VLAN, ICMP, IGMP, GGP, IPIP, TCP, EGP, PUP, UDP, IDP, TP, ROUTING, RSVP, GRE, ESP, AH, EON, VINES, EIGRP, OSPF, ENCAP, PIM, IPCOMP, VRRP; and most TCP and UDP services, like TELNET, FTP, HTTP, POP3, NNTP, NETBIOS, IRC, DOMAIN, SNMP, etc.
  • Data display can be refined using a network filter using pcap syntax.
  • Display averaging and node persistence times are fully configurable.
  • Name resolution is done using standard libc functions, thus supporting DNS, hosts file, etc.
  • Clicking on a node/link opens a detail dialog showing protocol breakdown and other traffic statistics.
  • Protocol summary dialog shows global traffic statistics by protocol.
  • Node summary dialog shows traffic statistics by node.
  • Node statistics export to XML file.
  • Scrollkeeper/rarian-compatible manual integrated with yelp.

Don’t Buy Leon Max Lederman’s Book, “The God Particle: If the Universe Is the Answer, What Is the Question?”

People outside the scientific community call Higgs Boson as God Particle due to Leon Lederman’s book The God Particle where he calls Higgs Boson a God Particle. Nobody knows why this Nobel prize winner has done such an idiotic thing but it seems like Leon M. Lederman was more interested in the promotion of his book rather than  explaining particle physics.

Although he explains his ploy by saying that he gave Higgs Boson the nickname “God Particle”  for this, this and this reason but what you see on the cover is misleading language of  Leon M. Lederman with Dick Teresi.

Tips For Successful WordPress Site Submission To Search Engine

  1. You can submit your site to search engines through many resources. You may do so manually. Whatever method you choose search engine welcomes the site if your content is good.
  2. Search engine scans all content whenever a site is submitted. So be sure about content, it should be there in your site.
  3. Your site should have at least 9 posts so that search engine can get something to examine and evaluate.
  4. Never submit your site to same search engine more than once a month. Never let a search engine note your anxiousness.
  5. Always be ready to copy-paste or write a brief description of your site in about 200 words.
  6. Submit those categories that belong to search engine’s directory.
  7. Keep a list of your website’s various “addresses/URLs” .
  8. You can submit your site’s root directory,  various categories and feeds to search engines. This expands your search coverage.
  9. Keep a track of what you have submitted and when to avoid random re submission.

If you need help in moving your WordPress blog to another location within your server then this tutorial is for you. If you need something else related to this then you may request that article by replying here.

  • Create new directory.
  • Copy all your WordPress core file to that directory.
  • WordPress core files mean all those files in root directory of your WordPress blog.
  • Login to your WordPress blog.
  • Move to Dashboard.
  • Move to Settings > General panel.
  • In the text box: WordPress address URL,  replace the address to the new location of your main WordPress directory.
  • In the text box: Site address URL, change the address to the new location.
  • Click Save but don’t try to open your blog now.
  • Now move all your core WordPress files including sub-directories to new location.
  • If you use Permalinks, move to the Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks panel and update your Permalink structure to your.htaccess file.
  • Remember: .htaccess file lies in the root directory of your WordPress blog.
  • Existing image/media links uploaded media will refer to the old folder and must be updated with the new location. Do this with the Velvet Blues Update URLs plugin, or with a search and replace tool, or do it manually in your SQL database if can. If you feel any problem then feel free to ask me here.
  • Update ‘store uploads folder’ under Settings > Media or all your new uploads will continue to go into the old folder.
  • Update your menus link from Appearance > Menus.

Brief History Of The Universe, The Big Bang

1. The Planck time: 10-43 seconds. After this time gravity can be considered to be a classical background in which particles and fields evolve following quantum mechanics. A region about 10-33 cm across is homogeneous and isotropic, The temperature is T=1032K.

2. Inflation begins. In Linde’s chaotic inflation model inflation starts at the Planck time, although it could start when the temperature falls to point at which the symmetry of Grand Unified Theory (GUT) is spontaneously broken. This occurs when the temperature is around 1027 to 1028K at 10-35 seconds after the Big Bang.

3. Inflation ends. The time is 10-33 seconds, the temperature is again 1027 to 1028K as the vacuum energy density that drove inflation is converted into heat. At the end of inflation the expansion rate is so fast that the apparent age of the Universe [1/H] is only 10-35 seconds. Because of inflation, the homogeneous regions from the Planck time are at least 100 cm across, a growth by a factor greater than 1035 since the Planck time. However, quantum fluctuations during inflation also create a pattern of low amplitude inhomogeneities with a random pattern having equal power on all scale

4. Baryogenesis: a small difference between the reaction rates for matter and antimatter leads to a mix with about 100,000,001 protons for every 100,000,000 antiprotons (and 100,000,000 photons).

5. Universe grows and cools until 0.0001 seconds after the Big Bang with temperature about T=1013 K. Antiprotons annihilate with protons leaving only matter, but with a very large number of photons per surviving proton and neutron.

6. Universe grows and cools until 1 second after the Big Bang, with temperature T=1010 K. The weak interaction freezes out with a proton/neutron ratio of about 6. The homogeneous patch is now at least 1019.5 cm across.

7. Universe grows and cools until 100 seconds after the Big Bang. The temperature is 1 billion degrees, 109 K. Electrons and positrons annihilate to make more photons, while protons and neutrons combine to make deuterons. Almost all of the deuterons combine to make helium. The final result is about 3/4 hydrogen, 1/4 helium by mass; deuteron/proton ratio 30 parts per million. There are about 2 billion photons per proton or neutron.

8. One month after the Big Bang the processes that convert the radiation field to a blackbody spectrum become slower than the expansion of the Universe, so the spectrum of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) preserves information back to this time.

9. Matter density equals radiation density 56,000 years after the Big Bang. The temperature is 9000 K. Dark matter inhomogeneities can start to collapse.

10. Protons and electrons combine to form neutral hydrogen. Universe becomes transparent. Temperature is T=3000 K, time is 380,000 years after the Big Bang. Ordinary matter can now fall into the dark matter clumps. The CMB travels freely from this time until now, so the CMB anisotropy gives a picture of the Universe at this time.

11. The first stars form 100-200 million years after the Big Bang, and reionize the Universe.

12. The first supernovae explode and spread carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, silicon, magnesium, iron, and so on up through uranium throughout the Universe.

13. Galaxies form as many clumps of dark matter, stars and gas merge together.

14. Clusters of galaxies form.

15. The Solar System and Sun form 4.6 billion years ago.

16. Now The time is 13.7 Gyr after the Big Bang, and the temperature is T=2.725 K. The homogeneous patch is at least 1029 cm across, which is larger than observable Universe.

Twitter Introduced Search Autocomplete And Search Within People You Follow

Twitter has introduced new search features.

  • Search Autocomplete And
  • Search Within People You Follow

In addition to recent updates to searching feature these two new features would be making twitter search more complete by putting you closer to what you are looking for.

Search Autocomplete displays a dropdown set of like keywords while you enter them in the search box. It is more useful if you are searching any topic with hash-tag.

Following list gives a brief introduction to new features. List was released by Twitter with its new search update:

  • Spelling corrections: If you misspell a term, we’ll automatically show results for your intended query.
  • Related suggestions: If you search for a topic for which people use multiple terms, we will provide relevant suggestions for terms where the majority of that conversation is happening on Twitter.
  • Results with real names and usernames: When you search for a name like ‘Jeremy Lin,’ you’ll see results mentioning that person’s real name and their Twitter account username.
  • Results from people you follow: In addition to seeing ‘All’ or ‘Top’ Tweets for your search, you can also now see Tweets about a given topic from only the people you follow when you select the ‘People you follow’ view. Viewing Tweets about a topic from just the people you follow is a great way to find useful information and join the conversation.

Here are some tweets showing how people reacted on this new feature:

Features of related search suggestions, search autocomplete and spelling corrections are also available in Twitter for iPhone and Android.

Should I Change My Mind For New Samsung Galaxy Note Sporting 5.5 Inch Screen

I am not sure whether I should change my mind for Samsung’s new Galaxy Note sporting 5.5 inch screen. It is inconvenient for holding in one hand or against your face but size doesn’t matter if the stuff you carry makes you to keep other stuff aside. Likewise hanging a laptop on you shoulder, holding a tablet in your hand and still keeping a mobile in your pocket is a bad idea.

Nexus 7 is not a subject related to failure of Google Plus. Google Plus was better than Facebook, it was well integrated, fast and really open (unlike to Facebook) but it failed because it was not having critical mass that Facebook already gained. Same thing happened with Facebook’s Email service. This time Facebook was lacking critical mass unlike to Gmail. But quoting this we cannot say that Facebook’s Email service was bad or Google don’t know how to work with social networking.

Nexus 7 and Samsung’s new Galaxy Note both works on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. But I suppose Google knows better working with Android than Samsung.  Samsung was only Android’s marketing vehicle before the existence Nexus 7.

Android is Google’s baby that Google adopted keeping in mind all his services that is why using Android in any machine prompts you to login with your Google Account so that you can get connected with Google services and hence connecting & using Google account becomes most useful and important activity on any Android machine. I have used other Android machines and a few of them like Sony Ericsson Xperia fail to connect with Google account and you get confused between hardware and software conflicts. So why not use Nexus 7 where everything comes to Google and using Google’s machine for Android is a better option as it would be working better than anything else.  So I’ll be waiting till October for Nexus 7 release in India.
