I just came up with this question today morning when I am not able to even check or see old mails in my Windows Live mail account. I had previously blogged about Windows Live policies on the number of email per hour and you know what? I cannot even get ANY email pass through that server to my hotmail live account even though my domain (and all its IPs) are not blacklisted. Check the screenshot that I have been redirected to since morning
I wanted to download something off a sub-domain using wget that I have password protected using .htaccess so the following command was NOT working [code lang="plain"]wget http://secure.asim.pk/myfiles.tar [/code] Luckily, we can pass two arguments to the same command and tell wget what the username and password is [code lang="plain"]wget http://secure.asim.pk/myfiles.tar --http-user=myuser --http-password=mypass [/code] Works Great!! If you are using Ubuntu 8.10, have not enabled root user and trying to download to a directory that has "nobody" or "root" as owner then try pre-pending it with sudo [code lang="plain"]sudo wget http://secure.asim.pk/myfiles.tar --http-user=myuser --http-password=mypass [/code]
I recently felt the urge to have a development testing environment on Linux (LAMP). I tried CentOS first since it is one of the leading industry standard Linux server. I was disappointed to see that CentOS does not have a 5.2.x series of PHP that I could install via "yum" (am not a very advance user so does not wanted to build it by typing long queries in SSH just to find out that I left some core thing in the first place). I did a bit of research and found out that Ubuntu could be a better choice. Luckily I had the latest version of Ubuntu already shipped via Postal Mail (aka Snail Mail) and this time the CDs DID get through the customs. For those new to Ubuntu,…

I found this really great article that I am about to share here. Robin Wauters TechCrunch.com Wednesday, December 3, 2008; 8:52 PM Having working in the domain name industry myself for a couple of years, I've always been intrigued by the fact that there's such a big business formed around something as trivial as a bunch of letters and numbers used to 'translate' IP addresses. And when there's a big business in something, you just know there will be a grey area as well where ethics are left at the door sometimes. Andrew Allemann over at Domain Name Wire has been doing an excellent job researching the hoops The Go Daddy Group jumps through to keep its shady tactics outside of the public view, resulting in this great blog post.…
A Bug in Wordpress v 2.5.1, originally uploaded by asim.zeeshan. Excerpts from PHPCommunity I discovered a BUG in Wordpress Version 2.5.1, the forgot password sends you an email with the "key" that is supposed to generate a new email but the "key" itself contains characters like "&" which appends to the URL like query string and wordpress gives an error that the "key" is invalid.
GoDaddy.com Problem, originally uploaded by asim.zeeshan. I use GoDaddy.com for domains, sometimes, and this time when i opened Godaddy, it was showing me someone else's personal information. I did not even heard of this person before in my life, which tells me its definately godaddy's bug. I sent an email to this guy and to godaddy and still no reply from either one till date.
