Music & Earphones

Honestly, I'm losing friends...mmh, that's totally bad.
I'm not saying am an Island. The point is, My friend is that one guy talking to me through my earphones, accompanied by beats and tunes. In simple terms, well-conveyed lyrics.
I like these people....I have friends. One of them told me my eyes will pop-out if I listen alot using earphones.
Please, if yours popped out because of earphones, let me know... It might be true. I know not. But I looked around and spotted something worth of sharing.

Pop ém out!!

that freaky htaccess

Htaccess - Evolved

The Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP) was initiated at the CERN in Geneve (Switzerland), where it emerged (together with the HTML presentation language) from the need to exchange scientific information on a computer network in a simple manner. The first public HTTP implementation only allowed for plain text information, and almost instantaneously became a replacement of the GOPHER service. One of the first text-based browsers was LYNX which still exists today; a graphical HTTP client appeared very quickly with the name NCSA Mosaic. Mosaic was a popular browser back in 1994. Soon the need for a more rich multimedia experience was born, and the markup language provided support for a growing multitude of media types.

Htaccess file know-how will do several things for you:

Make your website noticeably faster.
Allow you to debug your server with ease.
Make your life easier and more rewarding.
Allow you to work faster and more productively.

NF - Not the Same (Audio)

Word of the Day

Here is your word for today:

Verse:   2 Chronicles 16:9

'The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him.'

- The Lord wants to step into your situation and show His strength.
- The Lord wants to show Himself strong on your behalf.
- Our hearts are perfect towards Him when we have placed all our hope in Him.
- No situation escapes His view, so let's be confident in His strength and ability.

PRAYER: Lord, I pray that You will come and show Yourself strong on my behalf. Move in my situation and may I see the powerful and mighty hand of God at work. Amen.

Have a blessed Tuesday.
