Adding photos to iOS Simulator

I am writing an article for MacTech that includes selecting photos from the iOS app. As iOS Simulator does not have any photos by default, I wanted to add some photos to it. The process is as follows:

  • Drag and drop a photo to iOS Simulator
  • It will open in Safari
  • Click and hold the image
  • You will then see some options
  • Click Save and you are done!

Menu Manager -> Rebuild

After upgrading to Joomla! 2.5.3, one of my sites showed something strange: It added the word "Smart%Search.html" after the proper URL.
I solved the problem by doing the following:

  • Go to the Menu Manager.
  • Click Rebuild.

Joomla! 2.5.3 released!

More Joomla!

If you read this, you should know the problems that I had with Joomla.

Last week, my provider's server crashed (actually the hard disks) and it lost all its data. The good thing is that I had backups and now my sites are all up and running.

Why am I telling you this: After the restore, I can now edit and create large articles without problems!

About my Cisco 877w setup

After getting the Cisco 877w from I had to set it up.
The process was not as painless as I expected. As it is second-hand, in order to use it, I had to change its IP address and connect it to my iMac.
Its previous setup did not allow me to reset its IP address to the default ( even after using the Reset button so I had to do the following:
  • connect it to a PC using the (light blue) Cisco console cable (RJ45 to DB9)
  • get console access using HyperTerminal
  • delete its configuration
  • change the IP address
  • connect using an ethernet cable
  • set up the ADSL connection and the WiFi access

Joomla 2.5.2 released

It is a security release.
