How to manage multiple gmail accounts?

Manage multiple gmail accounts? But why?

Some people have multiple Gmail accounts and they find it quite difficult to switch between them. Google solved part of this problem by the “Sign into another account” (under settings -> Switch account -> sign into another account) feature which they introduced some time back. But the problem with that is you have to do it each time you login to a new computer or each time you restart your system or if your session gets expired.

There is a better way of managing multiple gmail accounts.  Google calls it gmail delegation. It was created for top executives delegating the “reading your emails and responding to less important ones”  work to a secretary.  But a common man like you and me can also benefit from it.

Is Frostwire safe to use?

Frostwire is a p2p software build up on the popular Limewire code. It is completely free and open source. Teens usually use this to download tons of music because it literally has got millions of mp3 files available. If you are looking for some specific music, there is a high chance that you will find it in there.

But be careful before you jump into using the Frostwire. You do not want to burn your hand in all the excitement. This article, Is Frostwire Safe. is Frostwire Legal. Frostwire Review will put everything in perspective. Remember that Frostwire is not the only option for music download. There is Ares. Here is a good article on Ares. Is Ares Safe : Ares Music Download. Ares Review.

Having a p2p software is like having a Gun. You can legally own a gun but it can be illegal if you do not use the gun wisely. Keep that in mind while using any P2P software which claims to be the best source to download free music, software and documents.

How to prefix www to your website using htaccess

I was wondering why my new website was not showing www infront of my website name. Even when I search my website through Google and click on the link, there was no www infront of my website name in the URL address bar. This will lead to some bad SEO problems in the future. So, I did a search and found that a small change in the htaccess file can sortout this problem. If you are also facing the same problem, edit your htaccess file. It will be in your www folder in your host server. Edit it and insert the following.

# Make all requests have the www. in them
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^websitename\.com
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.websitename.com/$1 [R=permanent,L]

The # sign indicates that it is a comment. You should also modify the “websitename” string with your actual website name. For example if your website name is shellfish.com then you it should look like

# Make all requests have the www. in them
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^shellfish\.com
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.shellfish.com/$1 [R=permanent,L]

WordPress .htaccess issue resolved

.htaccess wordpress issue resolved

htaccess issue with WordPress

I was trying to figure out how to work with this wordpress blog for my new website. It gave me an htaccess issue when I change a permalinks. After I changed the permalinks, I couldn’t see the individual blog posts. It was throwing a 404 error. I am pretty sure I will figure out how to update the .htaccess file but unfortunately that day is not today. As I did not  have the patience and as I just started building my blog, I decided to get rid of the complete blog and start all over again. I couldn’t even figure out the location of htaccess file. I have to get some serious web admin knowledge before I get this thing going.
