Cisco SPA303 – Dial Plan

I’m new to the SPA303 phone. I had trouble figuring out how to set it up so I don’t have to dial the area code for a phone number within the same area code. Below is an example I found.

 

Access Modifiers (C# Programming Guide)

All types and type members have an accessibility level, which controls whether they can be used from other code in your assembly or other assemblies. You can use the following access modifiers to specify the accessibility of a type or member when you declare it:

public

The type or member can be accessed by any other code in the same assembly or another assembly that references it.

private

The type or member can be accessed only by code in the same class or struct.

protected

The type or member can be accessed only by code in the same class or struct, or in a class that is derived from that class.

internal

The type or member can be accessed by any code in the same assembly, but not from another assembly.

protected internal

The type or member can be accessed by any code in the assembly in which it is declared, or from within a derived class in another assembly. Access from another assembly must take place within a class declaration that derives from the class in which the protected internal element is declared, and it must take place through an instance of the derived class type.

WordPress – Time To First Byte Slow – IIS

I had a problem with a WordPress website that I recently moved to a new server running PHP 5.4 and IIS. I found that the fix to my problem was in the wp-config.php file. I had to change the hostname of the MySQL db from localhost to 127.0.0.1. Maybe this is an issue with IPv6 being enabled on the server. I’ll try and look at that later.

Hostigation – Good for backups!

Just wanted to share information on this hosting provider. I’ve been using Hostigation for a while now for backups, cheap and for the most part pretty stable. Lately they’ve been problems with a spammer, which is not allowed, but they’ve fixed the problem.

The plans just give you 64MB of RAM but that’s because you don’t need RAM if your just doing backups and these plans are just for backups.

You can get up to 300GB for a quarterly payment of $40. That’s less than $15 bucks a month.
