Review on my Android based Chinese clone of IPad!

On November 2, 2010 I have ordered this item from eBay! I was skeptical whether I will get the item in hand or not because our postal service is still of medieval age! And the most shameful thing is that the dishonest custom and postal service officers even keep the items for themselves it attracts their attention. Moreover, last time Apress.com sent me two books for reviews however these bloody custom officers asked BDT 2000 tax for these though the books were gift! My bad luck is that, being a student I could not afford that high tax/excise duty!

All such experiences made me thinking that I won’t get things in hand! However, on the last week of November, 2010 I received the items (I have also ordered a speed light for my DSLR). Most interesting thing is that two items came from different countries and order in two days gap. However, I received both at a time. Now, let me say something more about the APad!

Waiting for ‘Monpura’ to be released!


‘Monpura’ is to be a wonderful cinema yet to release. People like me is waiting for a quite long time for the grand release of this cinema. Why the waiting? Its the songs of the movie! The songs of this movie are already released and attracted the listeners. The melancholy songs of ‘Monpura’ is really heart touching.

According to http://monpura.blogspot.com/ the cinema is supposed to be released on coming valentine day. Its a wonderful choice too. So far we have heard about the cinema, choosing a valentine day for its release is the perfect match as it is mainly a love story.

The most amazing thing of this cinema is the songs of some casual singers. That is Fazlur Rahman Babu and Chanchal Chowdhury. We have heard Babu’s tone in some dramas. But he sung outstanding in this cinema. His songs ‘Nithua Pathare’ and ‘Sonai hai hai re’ is really heart touching and heart breaking ;). I really became fan of Babu’s song. To me he is best casual singer :). But I admit other professional singers like Krisnokoli also sung well. But they are not a surpise for us as of Babu. Hat off Babu :).

I am waiting for the cinema to be released. I wish to visit as soon as possible after releasing.

Best contacts importing script written in PHP

All you know letting visitors/users invite their contacts is one of the cheapest but proven way of marketing. We can get it by placing a contact importer script in our site and requesting users to invite his/her friends by providing email address and password. The script will then contact the server and download contacts from the address book and finally will send a custom or preformatted email to bring them to our site.

But problem is the cost of such importer script. More than one year ago I have purchased such a script most probably at US$30. It can import from popular email services like Yahoo, Gmail, MSN etc. Later I have found some other scripts that can download contacts from a few more sites.

But throwing all them behind, lately I found the most fabulous, most fantastic, most robust and cheapest contact importing script titled “OpenInvite”. If may not believe the previous sentence until you visit their website. It can import contacts from nearly all major email services and social networking sites. I have counted about 48.  Continue reading →

Purchased a new Modem….Anik modem is dead :(.

Today I have purchased a new EDGE Modem for internet access as my previous modem died yesterday. The new modem’s brand is Histon. My old one was Anik modem. Today morning I visited Anik’s head office and showed my non-functioning modem. After a few minutes of testing, they said it is dead. But I it seemed to me that they could solve it as almost same problem occurred  one year back. That was within guarantee period. That time, they said “it is a small problem. My engineer is not available otherwise he/she could fix it momentarily. Then they have given me a replace. But not new one; they gave one old/used modem. I asked “why old one?”. A man replied “Should we give a new modem for a small problem?”. Then he replied the above line. Now the modem’s warranty period is expired so they don’t care it anymore.

I am not sure about the quality of Histon modem. But it takes longer to initialize and to become accessible than that of Anik’s modem. Don’t see any significant changes in browsing or downloading. Same freak about connection speed. What does it mean?

he he. Yes, Anik’s modem always been connected at 460kbps but it could never cross 228kbps. This modem shows 384kbps on its package and other places. But it connects at 460kbps. So don’t they know their modem’s connection speed? Why they put low on label? Very opaque.

Anyway, lets see how much it serves me. The worse thing is that this modem also does not work in Linux :(.

OOP with PHP5 Manual

“OOP or Object Oriented Programming is a good programming practice to create manageable projects more easily. Procedural programming means writing code without objects. Procedural programming consists of codes with or without routines. OOP enlightens any language for better coding, for best performance and for writing very big projects without worrying a lot about managing them. OOP gives you facilities to create reusable objects that you or other developers can use in their projects without reinventing them again and again. OOP removes the hassles and difficulties of writing and managing big applications.”

If you are a novice PHP programmer or even working with PHP for a quite long time but you are not familiar with Object Oriented Programming then the book Object-Oriented Programming with PHP5 written by Hasin Hayder should be your bible for learning OOP. Continue reading →

Creative VPS :: Creative(!) Business Idea

During the first week of november, visiting WHT I have seen that Creative VPS has an incredible VPS deal (Halloween promotion)! That is really an attractive offer. I instantly signed up with them on Nov 5. I got the account details on Nov 8 :-O. Even I just received webmin access (i requested its installation during order). I did not get formal account account info mail. I got that after asking 3 times even 3-4 days later. Anyway, i could login to webmin and shell using that info and prepared the server and moved a forum there. I was very much happy seeing the performance. After 2/3 days later, at morning I have seen that mysql is stopped. I started it. Same happened for next day too. I again started it and install monit to monitor its activity. Surprise was waiting for next day morning. I see that my site is not coming. I failed to login in shell. Then logged in to VZCP and see the container is off :-O. I started it. After a few mins, I received a email telling that CPU abuse from my VPS and offering to purchase server management. This is first time I heard for any VPS. Seems that I am in a shared hosting. Being VPS I should have separate partition of everything. Moreover, the site the VPS service is not anything intense. It was running fine with more 90+ domains in a VPS with WiredTree. The vps load remains below 1 most of the time. Continue reading →

Some tasks requires only times, some requires devotions and time, some requires skills, times and devotions. If you have proper skills, you should get it find easy to make money online. If you have IT/Programming or related skills, freelancing sites should be your playground. Recently I have had familiarity with some of the freelancing sites. So I write my own review about them.

  • Rentacoder.com (RAC) – It is the first site I knew within this industry. More than one year ago I have signed up there and never logged in second time. I don’t know why. After a period of time, I have unsubscribed from mails to. But recently I am again regular there. My comment about them is their site may be good for the buyers. This site charges fee from the coders. They charge 10%-15% for of commission which is extreme high. Even their minimum charge is $3. Once a buyer have given me $5 bonus and they cut $3 apart from the commission for the main payment, he he. Continue reading →
