If you do not want to keep your files in the xampp/htdocs directory and type in a long URL for every page load, you can create virtual hosts for each of your sites instead. For example, you may like to keep all your sites in your My Documents folder for easy backup. Or you could create a root directory on your hard drive such as c:/sites/example/ which will make using shell commands easier. Wherever you choose to store your sites, you can always easily move them at a later date. Continue reading

Sometimes it’s important to have only one instance for a class. For example, in a system there should be only one window manager (or only a file system or only a print spooler). Usually singletons are used for centralized management of internal or external resources and they provide a global point of access to themselves. Continue reading

Workers Continue Efforts to Prevent a Nuclear Disaster in Japan.. Picked up from voanews.com, This is IN THE NEWS in VOA Special English.
A huge earthquake and tsunami destroyed a large part of northeastern Japan last week. Survivors and rescue workers stopped for one minute on Friday to remember the hour when the earthquake struck.
The quake and tsunami killed at least six thousand people. More than nine thousand others are missing. About three hundred eighty thousand people have left their homes after they were heavily damaged or destroyed. Those displaced are now living in more than two thousand shelters.
There are shortages of food, water and fuel. Each day more roads are being reopened for trucks to take supplies to the survivors. But some communities remain cut off.
The Grapes of Wrath IS the American Pain
and Maeve Grant makes you see it, feel it even more through her wonderful multimedia profile of that wonderful masterpiece by John Steinbeck
The Grapes of Wrath
One of the best books I’ve read so far, featuring the worst times in America, blessed by John Steinbeck’s magical narrative and descriptive way of screaming out heartless infernal pain in silence, since when we read, we read in silence
I was 16, fond of internet and I never liked reading books, but with the Grapes of Wrath, it was different. I found this in my father’s bookshelves. Trust me, I’ve read it with tears in my ears in the end and I trust everyone with a heart will as well; for instance, the last paragraphs talked about a man dying of hunger and what a woman had to do to stop him from dying..
The official webmaster of bookdrum.com, Mark Negus, send me a personal email and that really touched me; so I decided to post this to my blogs. One of the Contributors at Book Drum, bookdrum.com, Maeve Grant, has created a wonderful multimedia profile of the book.
The multimedia profile on the Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck, contributed by Maeve Grant, really is impressive and contains images from all parts of America that pertains to each and every chapter of the book. From Oklahoma to Winchester rifles, she took great care in assembling the pictures, displaying them with descriptive paragraphs of what the pictures mean and, on some occasions, how it comes into play in the book. From my perspective, it’s nearly a multimedia profile combining the literature of that masterpiece, notwithstanding how she neatly classifies it by chapters. Now that IS impressively patient !!
Right now Im hot with fever and my wife’s nagging me to go to bed but hey, you call this addictive blogging ! When it comes to my blogs, it’s hard, really hard to stop me from writing something, even a line
You’ve seen American Beauty? American Psycho? American Pie? Now I urge those who haven’t read this to please read it and know the real meaning of American Pain..
The Grapes of Wrath IS the American Pain

That first day…
The first day of learning guitar will be, for some students, an exciting journey of knowing the magic of playing a tune, whilst for others, it’ll be a black eye two hours of obstacles and wanting to give up banging the guitar on the edge of your wall HAHAHA
That was not funny, cos it’s quite an investment nowadays, a good guitar; it might cost around Rs. 5000 (MUR) a good Yamaha, Taurus is not bad either (you just have to tune the Taurus every day before you play it, so enter the electric guitar tuner – there’ the manual one too, depends on you) You get good guitars at Venpin Rose-Hill and Columbia at Quatre-Bornes; I recommend this to all of my students: the rest I don’t know. When it comes to me, in terms of quality and affordability, these two are the best places for buying a good guitar to start learning.
Do Re Mi…
Fa Sol La Si are the seven notes to master before you do anything else, especially when you will be accompanying someone or singing it all by yourself. There are a variety of ways to play the notes, it depends on you and on how you want it being played.
The Guitar Posture
It’s the way you will hold your guitar. ACHTUNG! It’s your lady, your Madame Adoré, Your Amore Mio, so hold it well, the way it should be.
For me, is the most important thing to take control. I lay a lot of emphasis on the body posture. And this not only applies to playing acoustic guitar, this applies everywhere. I’m not telling to take the guitar posture to type something on your keyboard for God’s sake, I’m talking about what is the right posture to take when you tackle any instrument, a body posture for each instrument. So there is one for the guitar as well.
The back of the guitar body has been created and conceived to be laid on the knees, so lay in on your knees, gently, all the time. This is not hardcore after-party sex.
Your hand should be adjacent to the guitar’s soundhole so you can riff out tunes with your mediator to burp it out maximum. The soundhole is in fact the amplifier of the acoustic guitar.
You might note that many electric guitars do not have soundholes. That’s because they don’t need one, since the riffs you’ll gag out are being reproduced through an electric amplifier (that’s a pleonasm here – electric amplifier – but i have to say it, since i used the word amplify figuratively just above)
The Rule of Thumb
The way you place your thumb at the back of the guitar is important since the thumb will tell how the other fingers automatically position themselves on the inlays and the frets of the fretboard.
WOW, that’s quite rare I’m using technical terms like this, but I have to say it though, I have no choice. You must ask your guitar tutor for more detail
The Right Hand
is the one that will hold your mediator and riff out tunes. Sometimes, it’s quite savvy and kewl to pick the notes the tips of the right hand; try it and see for yourself.
The Frets and Inlays
will be where you will use the left fingers, except the thumb. Since the thumb will be used as the saddle, pivot and slider at the back, the fingers have to be placed properly on the inlays and not on the frets to create melodious tunes
is very important to create a beat so that you don’t play too fast or too slow. When guitarists usually play, especially in bands, you can see their left foot (or right) thumping the ground constantly for harmonious beats with their other peers. Try to do the same as well
There are of course other aspects to learn when you start playing guitar, and they slowly come with time. The more you practise, the more you will be exposed to it and exposure creates familiarity and drastically increased the learning curve. In no time, you’ll be John Lennon crying out Yesterday to your girlfriend (now what is that cacophony, she’ll say oh well) at the back of her window pane
The first tabs
Here goes out the tabs for C, D, E and F respectively:
If you consider the index finger to be number 1, then the next two fingers that follow will simply increment, stopping till 3 at this moment
C: 5.3.3, 4.2.2, 2.1.1
D: 1.2.3, 2.3.2, 3.2.1
E: 5.2.2, 4.2.3, 3.1.1
F: 4.3.3, 3.2.2, 2.1.1, 1.1.1
The F chord will have your index finger pressing the 2 inlays together, hence the same number for the two notes.
Enjoy ! I’ll post some links when I come around to it !
