In case if you are coming to my blog to find out why Grab Yahoo demo is not available anymore – here is why. Few weeks ago I found that my hosting service has been terminated by Bluehost – reason given was that one of my domains is acting as a phishing site.
When I called up Bluehost they referred me to my Grab Yahoo demo page – which is broken for a while now. Apparently Yahoo! complained to bluehost that the demo page for Grab Yahoo is a phishing site. Well, FYI Yahoo!, this PHP script that I wrote a long long time ago uses PHP’s cURL library to authenticate users and then allow them to put their contacts in an array. Since you (Yahoo!) have been constantly changing your login forms, added captcha etc the class (Grab Yahoo) had to be modified to keep working – which I stopped doing for a while. Due to the fact that it stopped working – when authentication failed it took users to Yahoo! login page – as I had follow redirection turned on for debugging at one stage. Anyhow, if you want to validate you can always download the PHP file from phpclasses.org – just look for Grab Yahoo.
We are all used to taking screen shots for various purposes on a PC or Mac. In case if you’ve something on your screen you want to share with someone quickly, this is a handy feature. There are many other reasons why we would like to take a screen shot, to create a documentation or user manual for example.
As I am getting used to different features of my newly bought iPhone I discovered it also has the option to take screen shot. The process is very simple. Press the Sleep/Wake button (on top) with the Home button (at the bottom) together and your screen shot will be saved in the Camera Roll section of Photos application.
I believe iPhone 3GS has lot more features and I will keep posting them as I explore.
Today I’ve released a WordPress plugin called “Recently Updated Pages” which is a WordPress Widget that displays your recently updated page list on the sidebar.
I was looking for a similar plugin but after searching for a while I wanted to write my own plugin. I followed some instructions on couple of websites and created this plugin. It uses WP_Widget class from WordPress core and extends it to build the widget. You can download it form WordPress Plugin page at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/recently-updated-pages/

UPDATE AS OF SEPTEMBER 17, 2009:
I’ve updated the plugin and committed the latest version (1.0.1) to WordPress plugin directory. The updated version will allow users to include list of blog Posts in the Recently Updated list. Originally the plugin only displayed list of updated Pages and now with this optional choice you can toggle between the option.
