Some time ago, I installed MySQL on my local computer (running Windows XP) so I can use it as a test server. I took the steps to make secure it by making sure that it is set up to only allow connections from localhost. But apparently, this still leaves the MySQL port (3306) open, so hackers can still try and attack the port. To close the port, you need to have the following lines in your my.ini file.


Then, to make your scripts connect, you just need to change the host names to '.' (dot).

When installing MySQL on Windows, the default setting for table names seems to be to set them all to lowercase. The problem is, on Unix, the default allows upper and lower case and MySQL is case sensitive so your code will break if the table names don't match exactly. To fix this problem, simply add the following line in the my.ini file.

It seems like everybody is using the free blog services nowadays but if you happen to have created your own blog, you can submit it to the Google Blog Search by going to this page. You need to ping it everytime your blog updates. For help on how to make your site do this automatically, go here.

Sample PHP bode

$req = "name=".BLOG_NAME."&url=".BLOG_URL.'&changesURL='.RSS_URL;
$host = "";
$page = "/ping?".$req;
$header .= "GET ".$page." HTTP/1.0\r\n";
$header .= "Host: ".$host."\r\n";
$header .= "Content-Type: text/plain\r\n";
$header .= "User-Agent: request\r\n\r\n";
$fp = fsockopen($host, 80, $errno, $errstr, 30);

if ($errstr != "")
	echo $errstr;
else {
	fputs ($fp, $header);
	while (!feof($fp)) {
		$data = fgets($fp,4096);
		$res .= htmlentities(trim($data));

	if (preg_match("/Thanks for the ping/",$res))
		echo "Google blog ping successful.";
		echo "Error: Could not ping Google blog search.";

As I've written in a previous blog, 'Sympatico Ultra Highspeed / Speedstream 6520 Modem Problems', Bell provides you with a really crappy router/modem with their Sympatico Ultra Highspeed Edition. I decided that I didn't want to use their router so I turned it off and just used my own D-Link router. Here's are the steps on how I accomplished this:

I recently got a new hard drive because the 100GB internal hard drive in my Acer Ferrari 4005 notebook was getting full. One of my options was to get a bigger internal hard drive but I decided that that was too expensive and not really worth it. So my other option was to get an external hard drive.

When you load up a web page with a form, sometimes the fields are yellow. This is because you have a Google Toolbar and the autofill setting has been turned on. For website designers, this can be annoying if you are styling your form colours. For instance, I am using yellow text in my text field which makes it clash with the yellow colour of the text box background colour. One way to bypass this, is the use the !important declaration in your CSS.

For example:

input.autofill {
   background-color:red !important;

Add the class to your form:

<input type="text" class="autofill" />

If you place this class on your text boxes you will now have red autofill input boxes. You may have to let your users know about your colour change so that they know it's an autofill box.
