As they were jumping the big gate to enter the cemetery, 2 oranges fell out of the bag behind the gate’ but they didn’t bother to pick them since they had enough in d bag.

Few minuets later a drunkard on his way from a local bar passes near the cemetery gate and heard a voice:
One for me, one for u. One for me, one for u.

He immediately sobers up and runs as fast as he can to the local priest. “Father father pls come with me’ come and witness God &Satan sharing corpse at the
cemetery.

They both ran back to the cemetery gate and the voice continued: “One for me, one for u, one for me, one for u, one for me, one for u.
Suddenly the voice stop counting and says:Hey, What about the two at the gate?” , come see marathon.

Even the priest almost pass church gate shouting we are not dead yet

News & Happenings / Jonathan Declares State Of Emergency
« on: May 15, 2013, 10:39:56 AM »
President Goodluck Jonathan has declared a state of emergency in three north eastern states following an escalation of terrorist activities.

The order is for the states of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe and at this point it simply means more troops will be deployed there as Jonathan has vowed not to remove state officials from their posts. It is unclear how these steps will resolve the fighting as these hotspots are already heavily militarised.

The announcement came as the president acknowledged that some villages and towns in the north are now controlled by Islamist extremist groups, the most well-known of which is Boko Haram.

The president made the announcement in a nationwide television and radio broadcast. Jonathan said: “After wide consultations, and in exercise of the powers conferred on me by the provisions of Section 305, sub-section 1 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999, as amended, I hereby declare a State of Emergency in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states.  Accordingly, the chief of defence staff has been directed to immediately deploy more troops to these states for more effective internal security operations."

Jonathan took the decision in light of recent incidents of violence in "Borno, Yobe, Adamawa, Gombe, Bauchi, Kano, Plateau and most recently Bayelsa, Taraba, Benue and Nasarawa states". Scores of lives have been lost as a result of the violence. The death toll since 2010 is over 1600 lives according to Associated Press.

He concluded: "I want to reassure you all that those who are directly or indirectly encouraging any form of rebellion against the Nigerian state, and their collaborators; those insurgents and terrorists who take delight in killing our security operatives, whoever they may be, wherever they may go, we will hunt them down, we will fish them out, and we will bring them to justice. No matter what it takes, we will win this war against terror.”

Introduction
Have you ever wondered that having to remember and type the URL of your webpage over and again might be frustrating for some users of your website? That was why the internet shortcut was created to help out.

The Internet Shortcut / URL file (*.URL) is a windows file which can however be used on other OS or better stated by browsers on other OS other than Windows. This is used extensively in IE to store bookmarks and favorites but can also be used to create a double clickable file (shortcut) similar to a file shortcut rather pointing to an internet resource and recognized by all major browser.

The file format
The file format is similar to an INI file and has the .URL extension (note .url doesn’t seem to work for some people but .URL works in all cases)


Code: [Select]
[InternetShortcut]
URL=http://www.example.com/index.php
Workingdirctory=c:\Windows\
ShowCommand=7
IconIndex=1
IconFile=c:\Windows\system\url.dll
.
.
.

There are still some other field but the most important are the URL, and ShowCommand field

URL: This is self-explanatory. It is the url of the internet resource. Note this is not limited to the http protocol, it can be http, https, ftp or some other supported protocols

ShowCommand: This the state the browser should be when the URL is opened. 0 or not setting this means normal, 3 means maximized, while 7 means minimized.

IconFile: This is the location of the file containing the icon that should be displayed for this file. This can be a .ico, .dll, .exe, or any file which can contain an icon file. Note that this is not limited to ffiles on the local machine of the user, it can be on your webserver e.g. IconFile=http://www.example.com/myicon.ico 

IconIndex: the index of the icon to use in the file specified in IconFile.


Benefits for generating this on the server side
Being able to generate this on the fly on the server side and letting the user download it their computer will be of great benefit in that

1. The user can save the file on their desktop like a file shortcut but pointing to your website
2. Your website is one click away from the user
3. The user don’t have to remember your url to visit your site
4. The file can be shared with friends and is OS independent compared to the Mac OS / Safari .webloc counterpart

Generating on file from the server
The code below shows our to set the URL field (which is the only necessary and most important field to set) from the server side, preparing the file and shipping it to the user for download

Code: [Select]
<?php
    $protocol 
"http://";
    if (!empty(
$_SERVER['HTTPS']) && $_SERVER['HTTPS'] !== 'off' || $_SERVER['SERVER_PORT'] == 443)
    {
        
$protocol "https://";
    }
    
$shortText "[InternetShortcut]\nURL={$protocol}$_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'];
 
    
// We'll be outputting an internet shortcut file
    
header('Content-type: application/internet-shortcut');
 
    
// It will be called myShortCut.URL
    
header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="myShortCut.URL"');
 
    
//output URL file
    
echo $shortText;
 
?>


The mime (content-type) could be any of wwwserver/redirection, application/internet-shortcut, application/x-url, message/external-body, text/url, text/x-url but application/internet-shortcut works fine.

Saw a joke about an error occurring while trying to display an error message a while ago. Well, an error has probably never occurred like that, so can't help to think why programming can't just be like that (where no errors occur)
