[How to] Log out from Facebook on another machine

How many times it happens that we logged into our account from CyberCafe, library or from a friends computer and forgot to log out and feel scared later as it might be misused.

Google noted it first and came with the option of logging out of your account remotely. Now Facebook has introduced the same feature as well.

Facebook also offers more simplified details and also guesses the Location and device type from where the account was accessed making it easier.

Anyways to do it you need to follow these simple steps:

1) Log into your account

2) Click on Account -> Account Settings

Facebook security feature

3) Click on Change in Account Settings

4) Check out All Activities and Click on End Activity that you want to end.

10 Common HTML Mistakes to Avoid

10 Common HTML Mistakes to Avoid  1. Don’t place Block elements within Inline elements  An HTML element is displayed as Block or as Inline by default. Block elements, such as divs and paragraphs, make up the structure of the document. Inline elements reside in these blocks, such as anchor and span tags. So you should never put blocks inside inline elements.  Wrong:  <a href=
1. Don’t place Block elements within Inline elements

An HTML element is displayed as Block or as Inline by default. Block elements, such as divs and paragraphs, make up the structure of the document. Inline elements reside in these blocks, such as anchor and span tags. So you should never put blocks inside inline elements.

Wrong:
<a href=”#”><h2>Block inside Inline</h2></a>

Right:
<h2><a href=”#”>Inline inside Block</a></h2>

2. Always have the alt attribute for image tags

The ALT attribute is a required one for IMG tags, it describes the context of the image. It helps your user on a screen reader or with a slow connection to decide whether or not the image is important. It also makes the web crawler index your contents better. If the images is just for show, use an empty ALT attribute like alt=””

Wrong:
<img src=”profilepic.jpeg”/>

Right:
<img src=”profilepic.jpeg” alt=”Profile pic of the user”/>

3. Don’t use line breaks to show a list

If you wan’t to show a list of things in bulleted or numbered order, never use line breaks. Use unordered list <ul> or ordered list <ol> tags for this purpose.

Wrong:
1. Steve Jobs<br/>
2. Bill Gates<br/>
3. Linus Torvalds

Right:
<ol>
<li>Steve Jobs</li>
<li>Bill Gates</li>
<li>Linus Torvalds</li>
</ol>

4. Don’t use <b> and <i> for bolding and italicizing

<b> and <i> are used for bolding and italicizing texts. However semantically they are classified as presentational tags. You should rather use the CSS properties font-weight and font-style for these purposes respectively. If practicality dictates to apply the styles on the document, use <strong> and <em> instead. They do the same job as <b> and <i> but are semantically correct.

Wrong:
<b>This is bold but wrong!</b>

Right:
<strong>This is bold and right!</strong>

5. Don’t use multiple line breaks

The line break tag of <br /> should only be used to insert is single line breaks in the flow of paragraph text to knock a particularly word down onto a new line. It shouldn’t be used to make gaps between elements, instead, split the text into separate paragraphs, or adjust the margin styled by CSS.

Wrong:
This is a line
<br/>
<br/>
This is another line.

Right:
<p>This is a line</p>
<p>This is another line</p>

6. Avoid Inline Styles

You have probably heard this a lot of times before. The whole point of semantic HTML and CSS is to separate document structure and styling, so it just doesn’t make sense to place styling directly in the HTML document.

Wrong:
<h2 style=”color:red;”>Wrong</h2>

Right:
HTML =>
<h2>Right</h2>
CSS =>
h2 .red{color: red;}

7. Don’t add(or remove) the border attribute in HTML

Border attribute is also presentational and should be semantically left to be modified in the CSS rather than in the HTML document.

Wrong:
<img src=”mypic.png” alt=”” border=”0″/>

Right:
HTML =>
<img src=”mypic.jpg” alt=””/>
CSS =>
img .no-border{border: 0px;}

8. Never use <blink> or <marquee>

These tags have never been included in the official HTML standard of W3C consortium. Apart from that, their use is considered as ugly and unimpressive. If you need to draw attention to a certain part of your document, use an alternative approach in a less offensive manner.

Wrong:
<marquee>Look at me!</marquee>

Right:
Just don’t use it.

9. Avoid using deprecated elements

There are some old HTML tags and attributes which have been declared deprecated by W3C consortium. Although modern browsers currently support them, they might not in future. Check out this article that lists almost all of the deprecated elements.

10. Don’t forget to put the DOCTYPE

The Doctype describes what kind of HTML you are using. If it’s not there, you don’t know if your code is valid. Plus your browser makes assumptions for you, and it might not workout the way you planned. Its often left off because nobody can remember the long address. You can use a blank document template, so you don’t have to remember it, but it’ll always be available.

How To: Make Windows Look like Mac OS X

Windows to Mac OS X

Credits: Lifehacker.com for the image

Windows 7 is definitely one of the best looking operating systems out there, packs more eye candy than most operating systems but sometimes it can get a bit boring as you see it and use it everyday. That’s when the Snow Transformation Pack comes into play. If you like the simplicity and design of Mac OS X, you can transform your Windows desktop into a Mac OS X look a like. The transformation pack will completely change the way your system looks. It will alter the way your login screen, icons, wallpapers, sounds, dock, dialog boxes, and other UI elements look. The only thing you should worry about is that you have to disable the “User Account Control” to install it, if you haven’t already done so.

All in all, if you want a breath of fresh air for your Windows look, the Snow Transformation Pack is the way to go.

How to hide files and folders in OS X Snow Leopard

By default, OS X Snow Leopard doesn’t reveal its full power or potential to the end user very easily.  You kind of have to dig around to do some pretty basic things that Windows would let you do via a few right-clicks, etc.  The other frustrating thing with OS X is that there are a million ways to do effectively the same thing.  One of those pain-in-the-ass scenarios is simply hiding (or unhiding) a file or folder in OS X.  If you search the internet for “hide file OS X” you literally get 1000 solutions ranging from downloading third-party utilities, to having to download and install the Developer Tools, etc.  Today I present to you a very simple way of quickly hiding and unhiding files and folders, without the need to download and install any other crap!  Here’s how you do it, the easy way!  Let’s get started.

To hide a folder, add a period (“.”) to the beginning of the folder name.  Yes, that’s it!  But wait, OS X won’t let you do this via the Finder (clicking on a folder and simply renaming it), so you’ll have to do it from the terminal.  Ugh. I know, I hate it too.  But trust me, this one is easy!  Open up the Terminal app, and navigate your way to the path that contains the folder you want to hide (in this example, I’ll be navigating to the root of my Macintosh HD (note that the “\” is an escape character sequence, which will allow you to navigate to a volume or folder without having to use quotes around names that contain spaces):

cd /volumes/Macintosh\ HD/

Finder with CrapIWantToHide
Finder with CrapIWantToHide

Ok, so now we are at the root directory of our internal Macintosh HD.  Let’s suppose you had a folder in here called “CrapIWantToHide”, to hide this folder, just use this command to move this folder into a new hidden version of itself:

mv CrapIWantToHide .CrapIWantToHide

Put simply, you are executing the Move command, specifying which folder to move, followed by the new folder name you are moving it to.  Note that this won’t hide the contents of the folder, just the folder itself!

Also note that if you navigate to the root Macintosh HD via Finder, your folder has disappeared (because now it is hidden)!  To navigate to this folder via Finder (so that you can see its contents), use this keyboard sequence with Finder selected:

command + shift + G

Go To Folder
Go To Folder

This will open up the “Go to the folder:” dialogue where you can type in your new hidden folder path:

/Volumes/Macintosh HD/.CrapIWantToHide

Boom! – it takes you straight to the inside of your newly hidden folder (note that you don’t need the “\” escape character when entering the folder path in Finder’s “Go to the Folder:” dialogue.).

If you ever want to unhide your folder again, just do the same process but reverse the two folder names in the mv command:

mv .CrapIWantToHide CrapIWantToHide

Done.  Universe restored to normal.

Ok, so what about files?  This one is slightly trickier, but not really.  Instead of adding a “.” to each file name (and using the mv (Move) command), we are going to use another Terminal command instead to set an attribute of the file that OS X Snow Leopard provides (and the Finder understands as well, so it won’t show the hidden file once this attribute is set).

Open up the Terminal app, and navigate to the folder containing the files you want to hide.  Using our trusty example from above:

cd /volumes/Macintosh\ HD/CrapIWantToHide/

From here, we can hide all the files in the directory via the “chflags” command.  Here is how to use it:

chflags hidden <filename>

So for example if we had a text file in this directory that we wanted to hide (called “MySecrets.txt”):

chflags hidden MySecrets.txt

Bam!  The file is now hidden.  Visit the folder yourself via Finder, and verify it is now “gone”!  So how do we unhide a file?  It’s simple… instead of specifying “hidden” via chflags, use “nohidden” instead:

chflags nohidden MySecrets.txt

Viola!  Back to normal, and the file is now visible in Finder again.  Chflags is a powerful command that you can use very quickly to hide and unhide files in batches as well, using your old Unix/DOS skills.  For example, say we wanted to hide all the “jpg” files in a certain directory:

chflags hidden *.jpg

Boom!  All the jpeg files in the folder now have the “hidden” attribute, and won’t show up in Finder anymore.

Congratulations, and enjoy these simple tips!
