Now this may not work for all wordpress skins, but it will for the majority of the magazine/blog types like arthemia and convergence.
First, add a file to the “Media” section of your WordPress admin tools by selecting Add File (or some sort of variation of that depending on the theme you have used) , select Upload file and find the picture you want to use as a thumbnail on your computer. Once The file is uploaded it should look like this:
Note the highlighted area, this will be your picture’s path. Copy that line starting from wp-content for later use.
Next, go to the post we would like to attach the thumbnail to in the posts section of the dashboard. If you scroll further down the edit page of your post there should be a section for a custom field. Create a new custom field by clicking on the text box below name. For name input “Image” and for Value input our path for the image, in this case wp-content/uploads/2010/01/arthemia-screenshot10.jpg.
NOTE: The ‘I’ in Image, must be capitalized!
Now click Add custom field and we’re done, you should see your thumbnail on the blogroll.
This guide will teach you how to make sure that your SMTP mail server is not a relay server.
An open relay server allows people to use your mail server to deliver spam.
If you have an email server on Ubuntu or other Debian based operating system and you are setting it up using postfix and courier then by default they are not going to be open relay servers. There is a very simple way of testing. The mail-abuse.org offers an automated test suite. The way you run this is by logging into your server, this can be done through ssh.
From your mail server run:
This will attempt to connect back to your machine and run a series of mail relaying tests against it.
Upon completion you should recieve the following message:
System appeared to reject relay attempts
If you are inadvertently running as a relay consult your mail server documentation for tips on how to prevent it.
Give your body few enough calories that it will need to feed off its own fat stores, but eat enough protein to keep your nitrogen balance highly positive so that your body does not consume its muscles (to any significant degree)
Who is this diet for?
This diet was developed for people who are looking to lose a little body fat (drop from 16% to 13%).
How long does the diet last?
The diet should be maintained for 7 to 14 days
What foods are part of the diet?
Obviously there is more to this thing than JUST protein shakes and cottage cheese
Protein Shakes (Whey powder + Milk or Water)
Cottage Cheese – 1% or 2% MF
Eggs – Fried (in oil or low fat margarine) or hard-boiled
Tuna (no mayo though – yogurt/tziki/non-fat sour cream)
Yogurt (low or non fat)
Apples, bananas, orages, grapefruit, etc – only in the morning or well in advance of bed
Vegetables (lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, carrots etc – no overly high fat veggies like avocadoes)
Water – lots! But at least 1 hour before easting or 2 hours after as it slows digestion
Milk (white 1% or skim, chocolate milk is allowed after a workout or run)
Coffee – no cream or sugar, only milk (don’t add coffee to your diet, but don’t feel like you have to give it up)
Beans (kidney/black/lima/chick peas ect.)
What level of exercise is required by the diet?
Obviously, the more the better
The purpose of the exercise is to assist in burning more calories than you consume
This can be achieved through diet alone, but if you cut your calorie intake too significantly, your body will go into “starvation mode” and you wont be able to lose weight
Exercise with weights (or pushups/chinups) 3-7 times a week
Jog/Bike/Walk (light cardio) 2 – 4 times a week
Is this diet healthy?
Not really, it’s pretty hard on your system, but it lasts for such a short time (7 – 15 days) that it’s not an issue
Putting it together:
Stick to these pointers and you’ll be set
You don’t need to focus on cutting calories too hard – that will happen on its own
You cannot eat carbs anytime close to going to bed (within 3.5 hours of bed time)
Try to fill up (not stuff yourself, just get to a point where you are not hungry) on high protein, low fat foods – avoids carbs (especially those from sugar) at all times other than breakfast (eat oatmeal at breakfast)
Going to bed starving is the worst! If you are hungry at bed time (to the point where it is going to make it tough to fall asleep) eat an egg and some cottage cheese – both of these foods contain lots of slow release protein that will feed your muscles through the night.
Protein is the best, carbs are MUCH worse than fat – stick to high protein, medium fat, low carbs
Remember you are creating a calorie deficit while preventing your body form going into starvation mode
This guide explains how to put your ads into the arthemia wordpress theme. By default, arthemia has 2 places for ads, the 468×60 pixel ad in the top right, and the 300×250 pixel ad a bit further down on the right side. Both of these sizes are common to Google AdSense.
Adding the 468×60 ad:
Head into your WordPress admin Dashboard
Select Header (header.php) from the list on the right
Find the line of code (about half way down) that reads:
First, get Macspeech Dictate. It’s available for sale at www.macspeech.com, and you can save 10% on MacSpeech Dictate with Microphone by using coupon MACSPEECH during checkout. Once its loaded up it will ask you to create a profile by selecting a microphone. The stock Dictate application will not let you select your internal mic to be used as an audio input source. To get around this, we have to download two applications, the latest version of Soundflower from http://code.google.com/p/soundflower/downloads/list and LineIn from http://rogueamoeba.com/freebies/.
Install Soundflower and launch both applications along with Macspeech Dictate. If we go back to Dictate we can select “Soundflower 16ch” as depicted below.
Now go to LineIn and route the internal mic to Sounflower we select “Default System Input” and Output ” Soundflower (16ch)” then click “Pass Thru”.
Keep all these applications open and go back to Dictate and create your profile. Follow the rest of the steps in Dictate and this should allow you turn speech to text using your Mac Laptop’s internal Mic.
This guide contains a list of ways for you to take the upper hand over your landlord. These are little-known, legal secrets that can help you when you fell like you are being pushed around by your landlord.
Interest on Last Month’s Rent Deposit
Remember that deposit cheque you made out for your last month’s rent? Do you think it’s a little strange that the landlord just gets to use that money for 11 months? As it turns out, the landlord must pay you interest on the last month’s rent deposit. The interest rate changes annually, but currently (2010) it’s at around 1.7%. So if you pay $400 a month, your landlord is legally obligated to give you $6.23 at the beginning of that last month. If you like math… that’s $400 x 0.017 / (11/12).
The concept of paying the last month’s rent upfront seems at first like it might be a scam in favor of the landlord. As it turns out, this deposit provides protection to the tenant – the fact that you have paid this deposit makes it much harder for a landlord to kick you out prematurely.
24 Hours Notice Before Showing
In most states and provinces (Ontario for sure) your landlord is required by law to give you 24 hours notice before showing the residence that you are renting. This is especially prevalent in student housing where landlords frequently take advantage of students by giving them only a few hours notice (or none at all) before showing the residence to groups of students looking to rent the house/apartment the next year. If your landlord tries to swindle you into having your home shown without 24 hours notice, you have every right to deny him/her entry to the residence.
Eviction due to Smoking / Pets
In Ontario, renting a house always brings to mind. “Are we allowed to have pets?” The answer is YES! Unless there is a clause in your lease agreement clearly not permitting pets within the residence (which technically isn’t even enough to keep you from doing it), pets are okay to have. The only real issue that can be justified is that if the pet is causing damages or disturbing tenants, which is the only justifiable reason for eviction in this case. Same of which goes for smoking within your residence, as long as it’s not disturbing other tenants, burning the carpets, or illegal substances!
