With Internet Everyone can Publish

With internet (and blog) everyone can publish, and everyone will. And what an amazing willingness it is when opportunity comes. Have a look at the following statistic:

One thing that we have learned in our industry is that people have a lot to say. They are using the Internet to publish things at an astonishing pace. 120K blogs are created daily — most of them with an audience of one. Over half of them are created by people under the age of nineteen. In the US, nearly 40 percent of Internet users upload videos, and globally over fifteen hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute. The web is very social too: about one of every six minutes that people spend online is spent in a social network of some type.

Publishing used to be constrained by physical limitations. You had to have a printing press and a distribution network, or a transmitter, to publish to any sort of critical mass, so broadcasting was the norm. No more. Today, most publishing is done by users for users, one-to-one or one-to-many (think of Twitter, Facebook, Wikipedia, and YouTube). Free speech is no longer just a right granted by law, but one imbued by technology.

Page load error invalid or unsupported form of compression

When I try to open this blog a few hours ago, the Firefox browser send this error message: "Content Encoding Error. The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression." I tried again several times, it still send the same error messages.

So, I looked for such case at Mozilla Firefox forum. Several responses with various solutions are offered. The one which works fine for me is this: "Cleare up private data, cache and cookies."

On how to clear up the private date, cache and cookies on Firefox see here for details.

If the above solution doesn't work for you, see here for more.

Oh one more thing, this problem after I upgrade the mozilla firefox browser into Mozilla 3.0. Is this firefox 3.0 the main problem? I am not sure.

Wordpress Fatal error: Allowed memory size of x bytes exhausted (tried to allocate x bytes)

Whenever I wanted to edit the Pages of this blog, often times this kind of error messages comes up:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 88080384 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 262144 bytes) in /home/wordpress/public_html/wp-includes/post.php on line 3075

I ask my host to solve this problem. It's ok for a moment. After a few days, however, this error message comes up again at the same place i.e. whenever I wanted to open / edit PAGES.

Curious, I try to find out what's the problem. And after some search, I find this answer and solution from wordpress forum:

It's likely not a problem with your database, but rather a need for more PHP memory. Methods for increasing the amount of memory a PHP script may consume:

1. If you have access to your PHP.ini file, change the line in PHP.ini
If your line shows 16M try 32M:
memory_limit = 32M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (32MB)

2. If you don't have access to PHP.ini try adding this to an .htaccess file:
php_value memory_limit 32M

3. Try adding this line to your wp-config.php file:
Increasing memory allocated to PHP
define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '32M');

4. Talk to your host.

If you're confused with point 1, 2 and 3, just do step no. 4: Talk to Your Host. :)

A similar answer can also be found in this thread:

I host with MediaTemple, so they let me change my own PHP.INI file. Some hosts don't, and will limit your memory limit allowed for php calls. If you can edit your php.ini, add this.

memory_limit 32M

Then, add this to your .htaccess file.
The modus operandi is the same: losing money and request money transfer. The country of origin is the same: Nigeria. The different this time is the name. It bears an Indonesian (Javanese name). Possibility: the spammer either the same person with more sophiscated method i.e. using local name to particular people or they are just really an Indonesian who smells that spamming is a good business. Or at least, a good try to earn money the easy way.

Here's the "money transfer request" spam from person called himself Sutikno Hardjosuwarno send to my Gmail. It's sent to multiple destinations:
