EgyptXO, Hugs and Kisses from Egypt

EgyptXO, Hugs and Kisses from Egypt

I’ve never cared about any project in my life than caring about EgyptXO. It means a lot to me, well as a passionate person about history and myth, it means a lot :)

 

What is EgyptXo?

In Egypt, inside Egypt, this is what we’re trying to show you, the media can be a big delusion, EgyptXo does not have personal interests except the knowledge and the joy of being aware about something exciting.

In this website, you will see, listen and read about the Egyptian people, from the Egyptian people, about history, music, traditions and almost everything.

We care about knowledge, we care about the real knowledge, we promise to be true, whatever happens.

P.S. Editors are group of Egyptians and non Egyptians, their major concern is presenting the real image of Egypt.

xoxo hugs and kisses from the real Egypt :)

WordPress MU subdomain wildcard – A Common Mistake

WordPress MU subdomain wildcard – A Common Mistake

Hi,

I’ve found that most of WPMU developers make this mistake, they misconfigure the multisite subdomain wildcard.

First of all, WP creates the .htaccess and wp-config part for you, with full instruction, just copy and paste of course according to the notes above the boxes in the network settings page, use common sense ;)

When you’re done with the WP part, go to your cpanel or whatever server manager you use, find the subdomain creation page, create a wildcard or asterisk subdomain, which is *.domain.com, and point it to the root folder of your WP installation, this is important step, cpanel will add the /wildcard part, delete it, and leave the slash trails to your WP installation root folder.

Start creating your network and enjoy WPMU :)

What would you do if you saw a freezing child?

What would you do if you saw a freezing child?

You’re waiting for your bus when you see a boy sitting on the bus stop bench, clearly freezing due to the cold weather. You learn he had his jacket stolen and was separated from his school group. He’s now waiting for his teacher, but he doesn’t know her cell phone number.

What do you do?

As you’ll see in the video below, if you’re a Norwegian, you help by giving him your scarf, gloves, sweater, jacket — anything.

The social experiment, which employed an 11-year-old actor and great story line, was organized by SOS Mayday to test the kind-hearted nature of strangers and bring awareness to children suffering from the terrible effects of war in Syria.

According to SOS Mayday, countless kids are forced to spend nights — which tend to be cold — outdoors on in torn down homes with no heating.

The group hopes the moving generosity of Norwegians will inspire people to donate to their cause and help children in Syria.

Would You Help A Freezing Child?

Facebook buys WhatsApp for the same per/user value as Microsoft’s Hotmail Deal

Facebook buys WhatsApp for the same per/user value as Microsoft’s Hotmail Deal

mark-zuckerberg-facebook-buying-whatsappFew hours ago, Mark Zuckerberg (Founder/CEO of Facebook) announced in a post on his timeline that Facebook has reached to definitive acquisition with WhatsApp.

Later, the official Facebook blog posted about the deal’s total value, ” for a total of approximately $16 billion, including $4 billion in cash and approximately $12 billion worth of Facebook shares.”

Recently WhatsApp has announced that they have 400M users, this makes it:

 

400,000,000 active users
16,000,000,000 USD
—-
$40 per user

And it’s the same per/user value of the Microsoft’s Hotmail acquisition in the late 90′s

 “Microsoft paid for Hotmail in 1998 : $400 million for 10 million users = $40 / User”

The bottom line of this results is, the majority of WhatsApp users have Facebook accounts which makes the deal very expensive and primarily ineffective. This depends on what Facebook really wants from this acquisition, will this be helpful in its expansion? especially after WhatsApp’s last announcement that they will start to charge users with a fee of $0.99 USD “WhatsApp is free to download and try for the first year. After, you have the option of extending your subscription for $0.99 USD per year”

TechCrunch has created a poll to say whether this deal does worth this value or not

UPDATE: WhatsApp founder Brian Acton was rejected by Facebook and Twitter before $19 billion deal

My Freelance Lab Experience

My Freelance Lab Experience

Simply, my life has changed, my abilities are being developed every day.

Some people think about freelancing as just an extra income source, but in fact, your abilities are most likely to be enhanced as freelancer 10 times more than being a fulltime employee.

Why? as a fulltime employee, you are asked to work at the same kind of tasks, in different ways, every day.

As freelancer:

1-Most of the time you are picking the tasks you want to work, which is things you love to do.

2-You will always set challenges for yourself, and exceed all your limitations.

3-You will feel all the appreciation goes to you, only you, as an individual super rock star.

4-The better your talent, the bigger your chances are.

5-In future, companies will outsource services via freelancers, because it’s better in cost and quality.

They say -in proverbs- your best year in life is your 23, well, one of the most amazing things that ever happened to me is deciding to be freelancer.

You always need to think out of the box if you ever wanted to change something, ordinary solutions can take you from x to y, improvisation can take you everywhere.

WordPress 3.8 – Parker?!

WordPress 3.8 – Parker?!

“Version 3.8 of WordPress, named “Parker” in honor of Charlie Parker, bebop innovator”

Is the headline of version 3.8 from WordPress.

WP announced that Parker 3.8 will have:

-a modern new design

-Modern aesthetic

-Clean typography

-Refined contrast

Personally, I find the new Parker is awesome, except for the editor that WP has never considered to update!

And once again, they promised the community of “WordPress on every device” and it was.

I like that expression “High definition at high speed”

The full introduction of WordPress Parker 3.8
