I started using thunderbird more and more and began to swing away from outlook or live mail. I think it is by far a better email handling program
My WordPress got hacked today. This is a personal site that I use to post tips and fixes for various systems and programming languages. I found these log entries in my webhost log :
126.96.36.199 – - [14/Dec/2011:03:46:35 -0500] “GET /page/7 HTTP/1.1″ 200 27695 “http://www.bing.com/search?q=ip%3a188.8.131.52+wordpress&go=&filt=all&first=11&FORM=PERE” “Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:8.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/8.0″

I am following certain steps from http://codex.wordpress.org/Hardening_WordPress in hope that my wordpress blog becomes more secure to help mitigate this problem.
I am posting all the steps I am taking in hopes that I am doing the correct thing and to make it easier available to help other WordPress Bloggers that might be new to WordPress as well not have this situation happen to them.
1. Rename the default account to something else. For ex: Admin or Administrator account renamed to “onlyIknow-name”
2. a password with atleast 20 characters
3. set the permissions on the wp-config file to “400″
4. got new secret keys from WordPress key generator
to be continued…
If you have any tips for me to help secure this site please submit a comment.
I got this error on my WordPress Blog:
404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request
These are the steps for fixing it, go to your permalink settings on the Dashboard of your WordPress Blog.
Next copy the custom string that you already have set.
Then set it to Default.
Visit your website and the page should be there now.
I hope this is helpful.
Was up my techs, did you ever wonder how to make those old .bat files disappear by themselves so that the user would not have to close it themselve and maybe making a mistake and clicking on the shut down button!! Oh no yes that would be a disaster!! So yes the easiest thing just setup the script to clse the terminal window when it loads but after it opens the program. Here is what i have in my calculator.bat file:
start /b calc
Thats all just put that
start /b for start in background you got yourself the disappearing prompt :)
Let me know if this was helpful, the link to where I found this fix can be found here:
