Call to undefined function: file_put_contents() Error

Found this error Call to undefined function: file_put_contents() while
updating my content grabbing module in a php file.

Tried lookup the Net and found that file_put_contents() are supported in
PHP 5 only, while the local JSAS system that I am using is php 4

Looks like time to update my local php4 to php5…


Fight for some URLs that interest you?

Found some interesting examples on situation where

1. You own some trademark or terms that related to you

2. You try to register the URL

3. The URL already registered by other party

What do you do?

Here are two examples:
1. The domain name at issue is “50PLUS.COM”, registered with Network
Solutions Inc. (“NSI”).

2. The Complainant is Fifty Plus Media Corporation, Mountain View, CA,
USA (“Complainant”). The Respondent is Digital Income, Canada
1. The domain name at issue is , registered with Tucows.

2. Complainant is Seaway Bolt & Specials Corp., Columbia Station, OH,
USA (“Complainant”). Respondent is Digital Income Inc., Penticton, BC,
CANADA (“Respondent”)

In both cases, Digital Income wins…

So a note to myself: register before its too late!


Advolcano Bugs

In my previous post I talked about joining Advolcano.
Now I try to browse their publisher websites and the first website I
already hit an error:

No suitable nodes are available to serve your request.

Hmm.. Perhaps more robust testing before roll out the site? Also I found
the site really not stable, you will find many page not found/time out


AdValcano – Cost Per Term Advertising Program

Just join a new ads network, Advalcano. Got heard about it from John
Chow’s blog.

Basically a very nice concept, and they only take 25% and the rest is
given to us.

However, their site is not very stable because I am having some problem
(page not found/timeout) when I was adding my websites information.

We will see if Advalcano is worth the time and hustle…

Negative Vibes? What an answer from Yahoo Mail

I downloaded Mobility Email

very much like ThunderBird..

When I tried login to my yahoo mail and I gave a wrong answer, the
response is “Negative Vibes from Yahoo”… I was, WTF! Why can’t just
say “wrong password or wrong user name”, making things complicated, as
like my life is not complicated enough..
