Count emails on gmail.com

As the app says they will generate report in which you will see various information about your year using of gmail.com.

I disappointed a bit after i couldn't login into the site on chrome.
And finally it will take up to 72 hours to generate report. So i still didn't got mine yet :)

We’ll scan your emails, and email you a private link when it is ready. Due to the overwhelming demand for these reports, we're advising everyone that it may take up to 72 hours as we get through everyones Emails.

Anyway i think that its cool tool too found out how effective was your gmail account.

Joomla K2 watermark image

We need to edit file - item.php which exists in our administrator folder, full path:
\administrator\components\com_k2\models\item.php

first we need to define the variable:
$img_url_watermark = "../images/watermark.png"; //(line 202)

near the comment line
//Original image

Then we need to paste the lines after each image comment to which we want to add watermark (i recommand not to add to small and xsmall... images )
$handle->image_watermark = $img_url_watermark;
$handle->image_watermark_position = "TL";

Than we need to add the code:
//gallery watermark
if($dir = opendir($savepath.DS.$row->id)) {
while (false !== ($file = readdir($dir))) {
$handle = new Upload ($savepath.DS.$row->id.'/'.$file);
$handle->allowed = array('image/*');
$handle->file_auto_rename = false;
$handle->file_overwrite = true;
$handle->image_resize = ture;
$handle->image_x = 1024;
$handle->image_ratio_y = true;
$handle->image_watermark = $img_url_watermark;
$handle->image_watermark_position = "TL";
$handle->image_convert = "jpg";
$handle->jpeg_quality = 85;
$handle->Process($savepath.DS.$row->id);
$handle->Clean();
}
closedir($dir);
}
//end

After the code:

if (!JArchive::extract($savepath.DS.$handle->file_dst_name, $savepath.DS.$row->id)) {
$mainframe->redirect('index.php?option=com_k2&view=items', JText::_('Gallery upload error: Cannot extract archive!'), 'error');
} else {
$row->gallery = '{gallery}'.$row->id.'{/gallery}';
}
JFile::delete($savepath.DS.$handle->file_dst_name);
$handle->Clean();

Its about 430~ line

That is all.... done :)

p.s. some sources where the solution was fount

Prestashop CMS block location header



Several days ago i faced with prestashop problem. I tried to hook right column cms block to header. But as prestashop developers says, that it was developed to hook only left or right side.

So here is my solution for this:

in global.css i changed right_column class position to relative and moved it up.

CSS looks like this after my changes:

position: relative;
left: 0px;
top: -200px;
width: 191px;
margin-left: 21px;
overflow: hidden

After this my center_column looked weird ( not full width ) and chaing it's width changes everything ( right_column drops down and starts to move... ). So i figured out this solution for the place: I changed center_column position to absolute, added padding-left so it dont overlay on left_column and added width which i was required from the beggining.

CSS looks like this after my changes:

position: absolute;
padding-left: 290px;
width: 810px;
margin: 0 0 30px 0;
overflow: hidden


Good luck with you prestashop hacking!

[Solution] user agent stylesheet override site stylesheet on Chrome but not Firefox


My problem was this: i wanted to put bold on text which was in select's option by putting style - wont-weight. I had succeed only on Firefox. Because chrome user agent stylesheet were overriding my stylesheet.
I tried to solve the problem for hours. Finally with my friend's help i found the website - electrictoolbox. And it says that only firefox allows to do that... that means we cant use wont-weight on chrome for option, select and optgroup.

My solution was for the bold text changing wont-weight style into color, with dark color for normal text and lighter color for bold required. Also i needed disabling option of bold, so i just added " disabled='disabled' ". That is all..

My result:


Good luck.

CSS compressor

Today i have created my own css compressor. I often do css compression, but i always used other sites. So today i created my own and using it! All you need just copy your css code, paste into css code field and press compress. The compressor will compress css code for you. Mostly i get 20% compressed code. Compression can be high and can be low, it all depends on your CSS code writing. The more compressed code you write, the less it will be need to compress.
So now you dont need to write it compressed. Just write as you like and after compress into compact size called "min" aka "mini" ( most of programmers use .min tag for jquery files , like jquery.blabla.min.js )

Optimize your website

At work as programmer i need to optimize page load time.

So here is some tweaks which you can use for your own web sites.

1. Optimizing your CSS and JS ( Javascript, Jquery and so on... ).
All pages uses css and js. Most of time they are huge. like 50-500 kb for css and same for JS.

Most of time i use the tool to see how fast my page is loading:

http://tools.pingdom.com

Best way to optimize CSS is:
Explode CSS files by parts and use only required ones for pages you are using. After compress it with such tools as http://www.cssdrive.com/index.php/main/csscompressor. And in same time combine these ones together into one single load ( search google for CSS.php combiner ).


Best way to optimize JS is:
Explode by files and use only required code you are using. Compress these files with tools like this: http://www.compress-javascript.com/ ( Some codes don't work after compress, you can try to find another good compressor which will compress better than this one. Let me know if you find anything.. )
In same time combine them with combiners into one file. ( search google for JS.php combiner ).

2. Cache! Best way to optimize website is to use cache.
There also some good tweaks about cache. For example using GZIP cache.
Most of time gzip compressed code with 80% success. For example if you code is 100kb, gzip will compress into 20kb and load it into user browser.
To check gzip compression im using such tools as this one: http://www.whatsmyip.org/http_compression/

3. Images! Less images - better. But as you know, logos and so on.. are important for web sites.
Big web sites as facebook using very nice technique - one big image with all images: http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/rsrc.php/v1/zi/r/uVYVvAILt0K.png

4. HTML, PHP code optimization gives some results too. Spaces, tabs, else { } and so on are pretty good on lowering some kbs...
but each kb less will be some gigabytes less for server load per day-week-month if your web site is big!.

5. Javascript lazyloading - it is very nice tool for loading images. It will load image only if user sees the image. If the image is not in visible spot, it will not be loaded.
Source: http://www.appelsiini.net/projects/lazyload

And remember, that visitor is important of all web sites!

Broken image. Failed to load images fix with JQuery

Today i was solving problem with failed to load images. There was 2 solutions for this - 1) php with getimagesize and 2) JQuery check.

getimagesize showed me warnings so my choice was JQuery.

And it was great choice, because using jquery is always fun.

Code i used for all img ( CSS attribute ):

$(window).load(function() {
$('img').each(function() {
if (!this.complete || typeof this.naturalWidth == "undefined" || this.naturalWidth == 0) {
// image was broken, replace with your new image
this.src = 'http://www.example.com/replace_no_image.jpg';
}
});
});

MYSQL - Deleting duplicated entries huge DB

The problem occurred when i had to delete duplicated entries

like this:

id name value
502 john null
503 john null
1000 john smith

solution for this was to group by name and export them to other table

so here is mysql codes:

1. Exporting to new table
CREATE TABLE new-table-name as
SELECT * FROM old-table-name WHERE 1 GROUP BY [column by which to group];

2. Renaming old and new tables ( 'different-new-table-name' , not new-table-name )
RENAME TABLE old-table-name TO different-new-table-name;

3. And finaly renaming new table to old table's name
RENAME TABLE new-table-name TO old-table-name;

Google chrome Program too big to fit in memory [ Solution ]


Today for first time i meet the problem.

I was browsing as always... many tabs - like 10. Most of them are text. Suddenly my pc showed BSOD. After restart google chrome want start. And shows cmd windows for a second.

With cmd.exe ( start > cmd.exe ) , you can run same google chrome to see error message. It was - "Program too big to fit in memory".

After some google searches i read nothing interesting but only complains and questions about the problem.

I was not worried about my bookmarks because im using google sync.

1. So i just opened firefox.
2. Went to Google Chrome download page.
3. Downloaded / Ran setup
4. After installation all came back to normal.

Also last session was saved... and i could see pages which was opened before BSOD.

In worst situation you can lose your bookmarks. So its up to you...

Leave a comment if your bookmarks haven't erased after install. If you didn't used google sync. Cheers.

Hope it will help you guys.

Input is not proper UTF-8, indicate encoding !

I faced with the error while exporting huge xml.

My solution for this was changing the code:
foreach($adData as $itemData )
{
$xmlData .= "<item><![CDATA[".$itemData."]]></item>";
}


Into this:
foreach($adData as $itemData )
{
$table = array('&' => '&amp;', '<' => '&lt;', '>' => '&gt;', '"' => '&quot;');
$data = str_replace(array_keys($table), array_values($table), $itemData);
$date = str_replace(" ","",$data); //there is one strange square symbol. after converting into chars //for blogspot it was removed :(
$data = htmlspecialchars(html_entity_decode($data, ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8'), ENT_NOQUOTES, 'UTF-8');
$xmlData .= "<item><![CDATA[".$itemData."]]></item>";
}

Hope it will help you solving your problem.
Anyways. Good luck!

Video editor online free - JayCfut


I was trying to find freeware which will silent videos audio track and add another one. I tried some of freewares like - wax , windows movie maker, avidemux ( linux video editor on windows ). Maybe they are good and maybe im not so experienced for the freewares but i found better free ware for myself - jaycut.com . It is website which contains java video editor, and so you can edit videos online.
After finishing your project it will generate file and send url to your e-mail.

Website of the project: http://jaycut.com/

A little about JayCut:
Why edit video online?
No need for downloads or installs
Instant access via any web browser
No specific hardware requirements
Access uploaded content anywhere, anytime
Works on all computers and browsers
Use content on the web in movies, e.g. YouTube videos
Collaborative editing, work together with other users from around the world.
Fueled by a passion for web video and creativity, JayCut was founded in 2007 and has since worked with some of world’s leading brands and received several prestigious awards.
In early 2006 we started asking ourselves if web video couldn't be about more than just consumption. We wanted to add creativity into to the equation. Nine months later, in December 2006, we had laid the foundation for what would come to be the world's most advanced technology for online video editing. The company was founded early 2007 and since 2008 we license the video editing tool to other companies and websites.
Today, JayCut is a privately held company based in Stockholm, Sweden. Our customers include some of theworld’s leading brands, and the company and technology has received some of the most prestigious awards in the industry. But our firm belief is that we've just scratched the surface of what web video can be.
Ask yourself what would happen if anyone could edit video, anywhere, with any mobile device, using any media on the web and finally publish the result to any device or website. Join us in starting this creative revolution!

Solution 1030:Got error 139 from storage engine

Today i meet with one big problem while updating MySQL database. The error is 1030:Got error 139 from storage engine.
The problem is that rows has limit.
I was trying to change limit, but there is no need.

Solution for this is very easy. All you need to change ENGINE of your table. While engine almost does nothing, and it will not effect on your values. ( Please read http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/storage-engines.html , before doing something ).

I had no time to read this so i executed the query:
ALTER TABLE `table_name` ENGINE = MYISAM

It worked for me. Hope it will work for you too.

CSS trick to cover with perfect background width and height


There is one cool trick to fill place with background, even if their sizes different. Just use the code for css:
body {
background-image: url(bg.jpg);
-webkit-background-size: cover;
-moz-background-size: cover;
-o-background-size: cover;
background-size: cover;
}

The goal here is a background image on a website that covers the entire browser window at all times. Let's put some specifics on it:

  • Fills entire page with image, no white space
  • Scales image as needed
  • Retains image proportions (aspect ratio)
  • Image is centered on page
  • Does not cause scrollbars
  • As cross-browser compatible as possible
  • Isn't some fancy shenanigans like Flash

We can do this purely through CSS thanks to the background-size property now in CSS3. We'll use the html element (better than body as it's always at least the height of the browser window). We set a fixed and centered background on it, then adjust it's size using background-size set to the cover keyword.

Works in

  • Safari 3+
  • Chrome Whatever+
  • IE 9+
  • Opera 10+ (Opera 9.5 supported background-size but not the keywords)
  • Firefox 3.6+ (Firefox 4 supports non-vendor prefixed version)

border-radius: 15px; /* Opera 10.5+, future browsers, and now also Internet Explorer 6+ using IE-CSS3 */
-moz-box-shadow: 10px 10px 20px #000; /* Firefox */
-webkit-box-shadow: 10px 10px 20px #000; /* Safari and Chrome */
box-shadow: 10px 10px 20px #000; /* Opera 10.5+, future browsers and IE6+ using IE-CSS3 */
behavior: url(ie-css3.htc); /* This lets IE know to call the script on all elements which get the 'box' class */

}

There should be like this: "behavior: url(path/to/ie-css3.htc);"

Download url of the ie-css3.htc file. Put the file into root and css folder. ( and into other folders in other cases.. ^^ ):

Last inserted ID of query in MySQL

For example: You just inserted something into database with query, and you need to receive ID of the last insert. You dont need to create another selection with `id` DESC. All you need to do is just receive id with function called - mysql_insert_id().

PHP: $last_id = mysql_insert_id();

Hidden new line in string PHP


I guess you seen the problem, or maybe facing with it at the moment. So if you echo the string with pre tags, it will show normally. But without pre tags, it shows ugly... just like a plain text.

The problem is that there is hidden new lines symbols like /r or /n and so on...

Just by replacing the with str_replace is not enough. So here solution for it:

$value = preg_replace('/[\r\n]+/', '\n', $value);
echo htmlentities($value);

How to test your hardware for problems

To find problem in your hardware you need to test everything... But you need to think... I mean, if windows loads up it means that video card, hard disk, rams, and so on works... Possible case - they works not good as "good", but they still works.

Anyways..

Here is some list of programs and other tricks i found while searching internet how to test your hardware parts.

Ram ( Random Access Memory ):
To test your RAM, you can do just by checking your Task Manager ( Performance tab ). Also you can see how many rums installed by going to "my computer"'s properties.
In harder cases people recommend to download these programs:
Most of the information was fount on ehow.com

Hard Disk ( Hard Drive ):
Most of test which you can do for your hard drive is installed in windows. It called "checkdisk" or chkdsk.exe, you can run it from command line. In other case you can do that from your file explorer:
  1. Go to computer, 
  2. Select hard drive
  3. Open properties
  4. Choose tools tab
  5. Press "Check Now" button, in "Error-checking" section
  6. In showed up windows check all possible check boxes and press Start.
  7. Wait until finishes and press Done. 
Also you can test your hard drive with SeaGate tool ( http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools ). 16,7 MB

Funny part of this, is that you can listen for sounds which hard drives are making ( in case if it is still working ), and check if it matches one of these ones: http://datacent.com/ . If it does,... i guess you need to change it.

More useful freewares such as "Hitachi Drive Fitness Test" or "Samsung HUTIL" and so on... can be fount here: http://pcsupport.about.com/

GPU ( Graphic Process Unit ):
First of all windows has included tool for this - dxdiag . You can run it from Command line.
  1. Press Start 
  2. Run 
  3. Cmd.exe 
  4. dxdiag 
  5. hit Enter
  6. check Dispay tab, for video card information.
Most popular method to test your video card is to install and run one of Benchmarks product 3DMark. http://www.futuremark.com/

Motherboard:
If motherboard is not working properly you will notice it. Some of these facts says about it:
  • Computer does not boot, and instead gives beep sounds.
  • Computer random crashes.
  • Computer randomly reboots.
and so on..


One of great software to test motherboard is Hot CPU Tester.
