    Cool “Out of Office” replies

    I haven’t tried any of these when I went on leave. Chances are I won’t be. 1: I am currently out at a job interview and will reply to you if I fail to get the position . 2: I?m not really out of the office. I?m just ignoring you. 3: You are receiving this automatic notification because I am out of the office. If I was in, chances are you wouldn?t have received anything at all. 4: Sorry to have missed you but I am at the doctors having my brain removed so that I may be promoted to management 5: I will be unable to delete all the…

    Transpose Email now on WordPress Extend

    I have uploaded my lesser known email spam fighting plugin Transpose Email to WordPress Extend. So, now you can download and install and update the plugin from within WordPress Admin area itself. Actually, the plugin has been lying neglected in the repository for several years now, before the directory even existed! However, it definitely wasn’t in usable form. I’ve rearranged the files and deleted the useless ones and the download is perfectly ready now. Transpose Email plugin allows you to use JavaScript to create an encoded link. Clicking that link will trigger the user’s email client to open and create an email. Download the plugin or read more about customizing…

    My Mail is now hosted with Google

    After having thought about it a while I’ve decided to use Google Apps for Your Domain for AjayDSouza.com. I have already been using Google Apps to manage WebberZone email for a while now, and now AjayDSouza.com 🙂 What this means is now I have a 2Gb Email account, which has all the features of Gmail (which IMO is second only to Yahoo! Mail). This is very useful because I can take a considerable load of my VPS. I have also found that Gmail’s anti-spam tools are a lot better than SpamAssassin. I also have complete POP and SMTP access if I need to download any email. I can also use…

    Would you like to Subscribe to Comments?

    Update: STC is now active on the blog. There has been a few improments in the code since I last used it. Just one point I noticed is that the code for the “Subscribe without Commenting” form is not XHTML 1.1 complaint. For that you need to add <fieldset style="border:none"> after the opening form tag and a </fieldset> before the closing form tag. —————————— Thilak suggested that I get hold of the Subscribe to Comments plugin. But, I am reluctant because of only one reason. I had the plugin running on this blog a few months back for a good deal of time. However, I realized that I was getting…

    Some Changes. What do you think?

    I have been making quite a few changes to this blog for the past few weeks now. Feed Changes Feed Redirection Began first by redirecting my blog feed /feed/ to the Feedburner one. So even if you have been subscribing to /feed/ you will be redirected correctly and I have better ways of keeping a count of everyone subscribed. Read how I did it. Feed Flare Next customization was with the Feedburner Feed itself. Have utilized FeedFlare. You can now digg the post and/or view the number of diggs. Also choose to track the comments with co.mments. Also Add to del.icio.us or email your friend 🙂 What other flares would…

    A Funny Farewell Email

    Was out searching for a sample farewell email as today is my last second-last day at work and stumbled upon this really funny one by Chris Kula. How many of you identify / identified with this? Update: sourced from WayBack Machine since the site is down. One might hope that the Monday morning following a long weekend of travel might be a chance to ease back slowly into the dull gray world of Day Job mediocrity. But when that morning is rife with backed-up emails written in office-y doublespeak, Post It note “reminders” placed on one’s monitor for maximum passive aggression, and nary a word of “Welcome back” or “How…
