TECHKNOWLEDGE

On July, 12 Joomla Project announced the availability of Joomla 3.0 Alpha 1 for download.

According to official Joomla website, this alpha release is intended primarily for extension developers to test their extensions.

It is not yet suitable for production websites.

General availability of Joomla 3.0.0 is due to be released on or about 24 September 2012 (though the date can be changed).

The developers state, that in case you are currently using Joomla 2.5 version, you will probably not want to update to version 3.0.

Joomla developers are going to introduce an updated back-end (admin-panel), which will be placed on the top. It will be accessible only for website administrators and must be displayed on each page.

As soon as the more detailed information about the new version and first reviews on the tested product are available, we will be glad to share them with you!

In Constant Motion

I wonder, if we can comprehend the real speed with which the things happen in web and the real rapidity of web-flow and users’ activity online.

Internet is another universe, and it resembles our world – life is dynamic, not static. Things are in constant motion, and you will never experience a single second, when everything comes to a standstill.

The web “population” numbers nearly 2 billion users, and guess – what happens each minute in web space? Here are some quite interesting facts:

  • users upload in total 48 hours of videos to Youtube;
  • make more than 2 million queries to Google;
  • spend $272 070 in online-stores;
  • send 168,000,000+ emails;
  • build 571 websites;
  • post 510,040 comments in social networks;
  • register 70 new domains.

Impressive, is not it?
And how do you personally contribute to this constant motion?

Google Power Searcher

Knowledge is power.
Francis Bacon

We enjoy being trendy and following the newest tendencies in the web-world.

Recently, Google opened a free online course “Power Searching with Google”. This community-based course showcases the techniques of successful web-search and the ways you can use them to solve some everyday issues.

During six 50-minute classes people, who got registered for the course, now learn new tips, tricks and tactics, which will make the search easier and faster.

The course features closed captioned videos, interactive activities to practice new skills, opportunities to connect with others using Google Groups, Google+, and Hangouts on Air.

Those who pass the post-course assessment will get Certificate of Completion.

The first class was released on July 10, 2012, and what is really cool about the course organization is that one can take classes according to his own schedule during a two-week window, alongside a worldwide community! Wherever you are, Google makes education easy for you.

If you are among the guys, who did not get registered for the course till July, 16 – you’ll still be able to view the videos and do the online activities on your own starting July 24, 2012 (although you will no longer be able to earn a certificate).

So, you still have a chance to become a great Internet searcher!

Never stop learning!

Strong Enough

Recently, the web world witnessed a huge scandal: on July,12 Ars Technica (a trusted web-source for technology news, tech policy analysis, gadget reviews, software, hardware and etc) reported about leak of more than 450,000 plain-text accounts from a Yahoo service.

The leak was “organized” by team of hackers known as D33Ds Company, who posted in web more than 450,000 passwords of Yahoo users’ accounts.

I have to admit that users’ approach to setting passwords tends to be very creative and considered. Please, read below the list of TOP 10 popular passwords all over the world (and you will understand what I mean):
The absolute leader is password “123456” – 1666 users chose it!

Then go:

2. password = 780
3. welcome = 436
4. ninja = 333
5. abc123 = 250
6. 123456789 = 222
7. 12345678 = 208
8. sunshine = 205
9. princess = 202
10. qwerty = 172

Dudes, I believe that you were wise enough to choose secure passwords for your web-accounts!

Please, keep in mind, that you are the one responsible for the security of your website.

And when we complete the installation of your template and send you the credentials to the admin-area (back-end) of your website, please, do not forget to change them to protect yourself and your information.
