Show Post Summaries on Blogger Blog Home Page

Just like what we see in WordPress blogs, blogger also supports showing summaries of published posts on home page with"read more" links to the original post. When I started blogging, I was confused whether I should show multiple posts on home page or single post. That time Blogger had not introduced the "After the Jump" feature. So showing multiple articles on home page was not a good idea at that time. The jump feature lets you display the summary (or the first paragraph) of published articles on home page. The major benefit of this feature is the non requirement to change any HTML changes by yourself. All you need to do is, just select the position of jump in text editor (in content) and the article part till that jump will be shown in home page. To read content after this jump position, reader should click on "read more" link displayed below the summary.

Steps to Display Post Summaries on Home

To display the published articles summaries on blog home page, follow the steps below.
  1. Open blogger Post Editor

  2. Select the position in content where the jumper set by placing mouse there

How to Enable Flow Control on Network Adapter

In some Network Adapter and Connection related troubleshooting we need to either enable or disable flow control property of the adapter. This article is a supporting article for our other network troubleshooting guides. Before going to the steps to change flow control property of the adapter, let us define what is flow control. If a Network Adapter receives input frames more than it can handle, without flow control enabled option, you may witness frame loss/ packet drop. It is because sender is not getting information about the possible frame loss and it will not stop sending packets. With flow control enabled option, your Network Adapter will be able to send pause frame which tells the sender (sender of frames to our NIC) to pause the transmission until its buffer is free. So if your NIC is not a high speed one, while connecting to high speed network, you may need to enable Flow Control property to avoid packet loss.

The Last Address Book Operation Did not Succeed due to a Server error (Error code: -40402)

I am not using Yahoo Messenger (YM) very often but at least keep a relation with my old Yahoo chat contacts most are from my college days. This time I ended up with a failure message while trying to delete an old chat contact to update his new chat ID. The error message I received while trying to delete Yahoo messenger contact is "The last address book operation did not succeed due to a server error (error code: -40402)". I tried to log out and login to check whether the contact was deleted from the address list. It was still there and the delete operation I did is a failure.

Reasons for Code 40402

In support forums many users say error 40402 occurs when you attempt to delete a contact, which had been added in yahoo email, from messenger. Another reason for "The last address book operation did not succeed due to a server error (error code: -40402) " is actually that address already deleted but some how shown in messenger contact list. So when you attempt to delete a contact from YM which is actually not present, you will get this failure code. Another reason found from their support blog is when they are doing maintenance or upgrading server, users will receive the same message.

The Last Address Book Operation Did not Succeed due to a server(code: -40402)

So the possible reasons are:
  1. Address is already deleted from address book and waiting for server synchronization

  2. Yahoo team doing maintenance on their server

  3. Contact is added by yahoo email instead from YM

Solution for Error code 40402

They suggest, try to delete the user from the yahoo mail first. Then come back to messenger and do the same. If the issue persists the possible reason is the server maintenance process. So it is better you wait for a reasonable period of time and try to delete the address again. So I am listing you possible troubleshooting steps to fix this failure.
  1. Log off and log in back

  2. Log on to email and delete the ID

  3. Come back to YM and check whether the user is removed fully. If it is still there try to remove

  4. If all the three steps mentioned above failed, wait for a reasonable period of time (say 3 hours)

Common Reasons For Google AdSense Application Rejection

Yesterday I have seen one comment from a reader asking the procedure participate Google advertisement program. He is trying hard to get AdSense account for his blog but Google rejects his applications every time. Most time he gets different reasons from them and he is not sure what is the exact reason for this continues denial. Every time after applying for AdSense account, he receives an email telling him his application is rejected due to following reasons "Insufficient Content" , "After reviewing your application, our specialists have found that it does not meet our program criteria" "Page type" etc... Though I am not a PPC guru (still trying hard to understand the working of this PPC system) in my best of understanding one website should have following qualities before applying for AdSense.

Tips to Get Your Website Approve By Google AdSense
  1. It should be updated regularly

  2. Quality unique content

  3. Reasonable domain age

  4. Genuine website(not MFA [Made For AdSense] website)

  5. Potential for decent traffic in future

  6. In AdSense compatible niches

  7. Avoid any black hat SEO methods to bring traffic

  8. Google loves content, make sure your website is content rich

  9. Having an about me page with sufficient blog owner details and privacy policy may help

For publishers from third world countries like China, India etc, Google needs your website at least 6 months old to participate this program. It is because of Google's continues efforts to avoid MFA sites from joining. To build decent traffic and quality content, webmasters need at least 6 months. So I feel Google's decision about domain age is fair. Another common reason for rejection is the niche of the blog. Google will not support certain niches and you can get more details about it from their TOS. I do not think current traffic is not a big deal while applying for their Ads program but they may consider the potential of your blog to get traffic in future. Google should feel you are a genuine webmaster and doing business with you is mutually benefited. One more thing, even if your application is rejected keep building your website and apply again later. It is better wait for one or two months after a rejection and use the time to build more quality content. After all, ads cannot bring any revenue if the blog doesn't have enough traffic. So build content and traffic to your blogs in the mean time.

Backward Compatibility Check Of 802.11a/b/g with 802.11n

Today I received an email from one of my blog reader asking if Wireless G Router is backward compatible with wireless N Access Point. He is planning to purchase a new IEEE802.11n Access Point to expand his home network. Right now he is using IEEE802.11 G router but it is unable to transmit signals to his computers situated at different floor. He knows without using a range expander or AP, he cannot extend the signals to different floor. From range expander and AP, he selects AP because of its extra benefits. He is attracted with the higher speed of n standard but it is costly compared to 802.11g AP. He is worried because even if he spends money to by 802.11n Access Point, will it work properly with devices in his network. Right now most of the devices in his network are 802.11g standard.

Wireless N is backward compatible with wireless G

802.11n is backward compatible with its predecessors. Wireless n works properly with 11a/b/g standards. Right now let us examine the g and n standards. Both IEEE standards work in the same frequency( 2.4GHz). However, there is a drawback. If you connect one n device with g device, the maximum speed of data transfer between them is 54Mbps because wireless g supports maximum 54Mbps data transfer speed. If you do not care the speed difference, you can use both technologies in a single network because both n and g standards are backward compatible. It is true for 11b standard too. However, IEEE802.11n standard operates in both 2.4GHz and 5 GHz bands. If the 11n device operates in 5GHz band both 11g and b devices cannot work with it. In that scenario, you can say both 802.11g and a standards are backward compatible because 11a works at 5GHz.

Practical difficulties between Wireless N and G

Though IEEE 802.11n and 802.11g are backward compatible, some practical difficulties are there.
  1. Wireless n supports MIMO but g, a and b don't.

  2. 11n can operates in 2.4GHz and 5 GHz but 802.11g and b supports 2.4GHz only.

  3. Data transfer rate of IEEE802.11n standard is between 54Mbps to 600Mbps but the maximum data transfer rate of 11g is 54Mbps.

My Android Phone Boots in Safe Mode

Few days ago I rebooted my Android phone and after that I see a label "Safe Mode" on the left hand bottom corner of the screen. After reboot, it starts operate in safe mode but I never noticed an option to select safe mode while rebooting the device as we have in desktop computer. In Android discussions some users say safe boot is designed to disable the working of third-party apps on Android to make troubleshooting easy. If your handset has a lot of third party Apps installed, they might cause incompatibility with each other. In that case your handset may show many troubles. However, it is a mystery how come my phone get in to it because I never did anything intentionally.

Reasons to Work my Android Phone in Safe mode

In some technology communities, users mention a way to safe boot Android device by pressing menu button while restarting the device. I do believe I might pressed the menu button when I rebooted my handset and as a result now it operates in safe mode. This method is confirmed while reading a few user-manuals about the effect of holding the menu button while booting a mobile handset. However, depends on the models and version, the steps to bring Android in different boot mode varies. You cannot safe boot Samsung Galaxy with the procedure to start HTC handset in safe mode. The same procedure may not work with LG or Motorola handsets.

How to Recover Android Phone from Safe Booting

In safe mode none of the third party apps works. So it might be annoying to continue in it. To recover your mobile phone, press power button and restart it. After a proper restart, it will be back in to normal mode. When it backs to normal, you will face no troubles with running third party applications on it. If you read the mobile handset user manual carefully, you may find other steps too. Anyway I have found a way to boot my Smartphone in safe mode though I didn't intend for it. So if you want to boot your Smartphones in different booting orders, you can refer this method.
