Secure Your Home Network Via Bitdefender Box

We are facing a new generation which I safely call the interconnected generation. The information age has enabled us to connect not only our computers but our own home into the ever expanding global network.

PHP Autoloading Class

Many developers writing object-oriented applications create one PHP source file per class definition. One of the biggest annoyances is having to write a long list of needed includes at the beginning of each script (one for each class).

In PHP 5, this is no longer necessary. The spl_autoload_register() function registers any number of autloaders, enabling for classes and interfaces to be automatically loaded if they are currently not defined. By registering autoloaders, PHP is given a last chance to load the class or interface before it fails with an error.

Is Globe GCash Worth Your Time

GCash have recently announced that they will be charging customers with NO TRANSACTIONS in 6 months for P50 per month. All inactive cards with Zero balance will be closed. This move will clean up unused reserved card numbers (virtual/physical) and return them to the allocation pool.
