Moving WordPress

My friend is thinking of moving a free WordPress hosted blog to its own domain. Meaning instead of http://www.example.wordpress.com it will be http://www.example.com. It seems a good idea since the blog earn more credibility standing on its own, not relying to wordpress.com. You know what I mean?

Anyway, there are disadvantages though when moving like it may eventually lose traffic for some time since the url will change, unless you do redirection, and change permalink structure.

So far, my blog in wordpress is new. I don’t have to worry about it yet. I don’t have that much of visitors anyway.

Google Translates ‘I am sorry’ in 40 languages

Ever wonder what is I am sorry in Spanish? in French? in Dutch? in German? Well, don’t worry because Google comes to the rescue.

Google has this free online translation tool where you can type a word, or phrase, or a sentence, and the tool will translate it. Of course you have to choose from which language it is written and to what language you want it to be translated to, so that Google translator will do it right for you.

The translation tool does not yield perfect translation most of the time. Google is still polishing their translation technology.

Google Translates ‘I am sorry’

As I said earlier, the sentence ‘I am sorry’ can be translated to different languages using the Google Translate. Below are what Google has translated it to, and I am not sure how accurate they are. But at least we have an idea. The sentence ‘I am sorry ‘ anyway is common, so we should assume the translations here by Google Translate are close to the right translation.

I am sorry though because I can’t read non-roman characters, so I am not sure how they are pronounced.

Disabling Snap View in WordPress

Filed under: Uncategorized — thenson @ 1:06 pm

I have other blogs using wordpress. So setting up a new WordPress blog is not new to me. Since it was just set up, the snap view is enabled, and I tried to disable it by memory. However, my memory failed me because I thought it was in the Users section. When I figured I forgot how to disable the feature, I looked it up on Google and found this article. Oh well, I finally remembered where I had to disable it.

Deleting A Gmail Account

Filed under: Gmail — thenson @ 12:55 pm

Today, I started my day figuring out how to delete a gmail account. I wanted to  do it because I thought it was the best way to avoid this old friend who kept emailing me things I didn’t want to read. Well, our friendship gone sour. Yeah, I know bad.. but anyway since she kept bugging me for something we already talked about, I decided to delete my gmail account and just get a new one.

When I was about to go through the deletion process, I remember though I made an effort to export the Yahoo Address Book to Gmail and inform all my contacts of my new email address. Thus, I just look up online if there is a way to block someone in Gmail. So, yeah, there is and I just followed the steps in the article, and it worked. Maybe labeling could also work.

P.S.

Deleting my Gmail account may have not work too since I have used that email address for two years for work and personal contacts. I can’t even reactivate it if I want it back.
