Google NCR

Google NCRMost of you would be knowing about this trick in navigating to Google generic website. But I just came to know only a few days before and hence thought I would share the information with others too.
Whenever you type, Google automatically tries to redirect you to your country-specific website. For me, it always redirects to (Google India). But when we specifically want to navigate to Google Generic website for some reason, there are two ways to accomplish the same.Click the 'Go to' link at the bottom of the webpage that is displayed from prevent this redundant click, you can opt to type which would prevent the redirect from happening. The NCR stands for No Country Redirect.

Elegant 'MailTo' Replacement

Elegant 'MailTo' Replacement

MailTo tags have become a bane to all websites since spammers run spam robots which crawl the web to capture the email addresses, add to their catalogs and send spams to them. I just thought of sharing with others a simple JavaScript function which would trigger open the default email client instead of having mailto: embedded in the HTML Page.

Just have the following function included in your webpage

<script language='Javascript'>
function WriteMailTo(user,domain)
location.replace ('mailto:'+user+'@'+domain);

And whereever you want to invoke the mailto, just called WriteMailTo('user','') and the user's default email client should be launching (if configured) without any hassles.

I wrote up a following simple script to import the contacts to AB. The pre-requisite for this script is to hop on to PhpMyAdmin, export the contacts as a PHP array and then  modify the path in our import script to whatever you downloaded from PhpMyAdmin.
Our import script would explode the entries as SQL scripts into the browser window. Copy them and execute into PhpMyAdmin AB database to have the contacts imported.
