SIG GUARD Updated
Next update, version .1.8 is available for Silence is Golden Guard
– Arabic translation is added. Thanks to mr. Ahmad;
– shinephp.com news section was removed from plugin’s Settings page, which should decrease this page load time.
Some part of work on version 2.0 was done, some part is left to do. I’m rewriting code almost from scratch. Some new features will be added to make your loving WordPress blog more silent 🙂 in relation of its security. Look for updates in month or two.
NVIDIA driver installation
Do you love your Ubuntu box? I’m too.
Being loyal Ubuntu user, earlier or later you will meet with such scenario:
you’ve bought powerful NVIDIA graphics card, inserted it into your PC box and tried to boot Ubuntu. What’s the <censored>?! Your new graphic card isn’t recognized by your loving Ubuntu box. It just hasn’t suitable driver package for this modern hardware. You can get this or similar message from Ubuntu during boot process then:
“Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode.
The following error was encountered,
You may need to update your configuration to solve this.
(EE) NVIDIA: Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module…
What to do?
WP Sanitize or Simple Optimization
I’m interesting in WordPress security plugins. Recently, going through WordPress plugins repository I found one which looked promising. “WP Sanitize checks for potential security vulnerabilities and keeps your WordPress database optimized”, – this is quote from its description. I decided to test it.
Author: Mr. Vibe
Download link : wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-sanitize/
I thought, how’s that possible with size 2 Kb only to check security vulnerabilities? May be it uses some web service for that? What critical data plugin sends to external site then in order to make security test? So I went through the code and discovered that there is no any real or potential vulnerabilities checking in the current version of plugin.
Ultimate Security Checker
As WordPress blog owner spending hours on its content you should concern about your product security. In other case it’s possible to lose all that hard earned content in a minute. There are a lot of malicious software bots and damn headless young crackers permanently trying to hack our blogs. And if it’s easy to restore original content from the fresh backup copy (do you have it?), it’s more complex (if possible at all) to restore the lost reputation in case your blog was used as spammer base or showed some bad content after hack incident.
Are you sure that your loving blog is secure?

Piza Duomo Italy
Let me leave you for two weeks. I have a long waited and deserved vacation for that period.
I take a plane to Italy today and start my next journey by rented car on roads of Italy, Switzerland, Austria and Italy again.
I’m starving to see ancient architecture monuments, beautiful works of Renaissance Italian artists, nice nature pictures and Alps especially. If you are interested in my route, photos, videos and notes from my way, let me know and I will make some posts about this journey.
