First, Magento Connect Reviews are gone, now they are closing

First, Magento Connect Reviews are gone, now they are closing. Yep, you read it right. They will now close the good old Magento Connect and will move everything in the Marketplace. Good news is that they will filter all the extensions and will only retain the ones that are worthy to be retained. You can read more about the announcement here: https://magento.com/blog/magento-news/magento-connect-moving-marketplace

Below is the screenshot of my Magento Connect Manager that I took today. It will be practically useless, but still, you can use it when you have downloaded an extension package from Magento Connect using this freegento.com/ddl-magento-extension.php, or if you have your own packaged module from a Magento extension store.

All good things will come to an end eventually, and one of the pretty good things in my life is Magento Connect. I’m one of the Top 10 reviewers in the world in M1 connect extensions, and it’s sad to see that it’s gone for good.

The extremely annoying WordPress 4.8 and its Visual Editor in Text Widgets

Yes, it’s extremely annoying. It should be optional in the first place. Let’s wait for the WP guys to fix this issue once and for all. I hope WP 4.9 will make it optional, or just completely remove it. This. Is. So. Annoying.!!!

For the meanwhile, you can use this plugin:

Add Paragraphs Option to Text Widget

Or just wait for the future release of WordPress.

And nope. I am not alone. There are a lot of us:

And more. Oh please, Matt… for the sake of all the people of the universe, just disabled the visual editor in text widgets. T_T

The INTCoin Scam


Be careful of INTcoin, as it’s an absolute scam. People who invested in INTcoin’s ICO a few months ago lost all their money. It’s a brilliantly orchestrated scam that lured newbie and some veteran investors. It was featured in CoinTelegraph, The Bitcoin News, Cryptocoin News, News BTC, The Bitcoin Wire, and Bitcoin Wiki. All of these news sites are reputable cryptocurrency news sources, but they do accept sponsored post, and scam artists behind INTcoin sponsored a post on these sites to lure investors to their ICO.

It’s also mentioned in CNBC!!! Hahahaha! A known investor Timothy Enneking was also scammed, because according to him (as what I’ve read in CNBC), he invested during the INTcoin ICO. Be very careful as it’s also related to Intellicoin, another scam coin that is listed in some exchanges like Bittrex.

Just be very careful everyone. A lot of ICO and cryptocurrency scams are popping up out everywhere in this very very dangerous world.

Kimstore: they neither confirm nor deny

So what really happened with Kimstore? Are you curious? Because I am. Yuga already posted a comprehensive story behind what really happened with Kimstore, bombarded with mixed comments from Kimstore supporters and haters. Kimstore just ignored what happened last month. They neither confirmed nor denied the incident. If you neither confirm nor deny a certain incident, there’s a high probability (and in most cases, it’s a proof) that you’re guilty.

Anyway they are now back in business. Let’s shop at Kimstore and enjoy our savings rack up!

A company people can go to to help them with their website services

In this day and age, which could quite appropriately be called the Internet Age, there seems to be one fundamental fact that all internet users can understand and agree on. That fact is is that it’s not only important, but imperative for any business out in the marketplace, or individual who wants to get their name and image “out there”, to get a webpage or website.

For new internet users, or those trying to get up to speed in this ever-growing field, the thought of getting a website on their own can be a rather intimidating thought. Especially if they’ve been to a number of sites around the internet and have seen some of the dynamic things they can do. Thoughts of long, drawn out and expensive startup costs go through many people’s minds. But the simple fact of the matter is, this certainly doesn’t have to be the case.

Smart Bro IPs blocked in PayPal.com

If you’re using Smart Bro, chances are you’re also blocked from accessing Paypal.com. Don’t worry, you are not alone. My Smart mobile wifi is blocked as well. Paypal seems to blocked a wide range of Smart IPs. I suggest that you use another ISP or a VPN, when accessing Paypal.

This happened since March 2015. A lot of Smart IP addresses were blocked from PayPal. And lately, last December 2016, more Smart Broadband IPs were blocked by PayPal. It’s safe to assume that it’s an automated block.

Adsense Payment Settings Blank (a.k.a. Loading Forever)


Are you attempting to change your payment settings, like holding or unholding a payment, scheduling a payment, or changing your payment threshold! Now you can’t, because the payment settings page doesn’t load anymore. It’s blank in the classic Adsense dashboard, and it’ loading endlessly in the new Google Adsense dashboard.
