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.

Gmail Introduced Themes!!!

Just few mins ago, I have logged into Gmail and discovered some changes on interface! I was looking for New Features link at right-top. But did not found. Then I saw a message on top that they introduced themes and colors. I browsed to the Theme tab from settings and tried themes one after another. But none of them suits me. I did not like a single theme. None of themes are comfortable for my eyes. Most simple themes has too many white spaces that were making reading unpleasant. I tried some other non-white themes. The background of those colors are not also comfortable for my eyes.

I am now wondering how to switch to previous looks. I hate current themes :(.

Surprise your friends!

Do you want to read mind of your buddy members? Or at least do want to know earlier they are going to type anything for you on the messenger? I believe, you friend will call you magician 😉 when you can it ;).

Pidgin is a fantastic Instant Messaging software. Using this software you can simultaneously login to Yahoo!, GMail, MSN, AOL and so on. Moreover, you can use multiple accounts for each. I have 3 Yahoo! ID. I stay logged on to all of them simultaneously. Now lets move to our point.

Pidgin has many plugins to use. Using its Psychic Mode plugin you can be that magician. I love it.

What it does actually?

When you have this plugin enabled, you will automatically open a chat window as soon as someone started typing something for you. For example, you friend clicked on your id from his messenger and started typing something, you will instantly get a message that your friend is writing something. Then by telling hi, you can really surprise him! Whenever I get the alert, I reply ‘Hello, what you wanna say?’. They became astonished thinking how I could know that he is writing to me. When they ask me I reply ‘I know magic’ :-).

Psychic Mode plugin is attached with the main installation of Pidgin. Just install Pidgin and enjoy!
