Google updates Google App’s maximum number of users for Standard/Free Edition

Today I have received an announcement from Google Apps team that maximum # of users for Standard edition (which is free) has been reduced to 10. Previously that number was 50 (really generous), with which many businesses don’t really need to go and buy the Premier Edition which would cost $50/year per user (email account). Especially when they really don’t want to go for signing up SLA for up-time and all that.

Netbeans 7.0 RC1 Released

Netbeans has been one of my favorite IDE for PHP, I have been using it in my day to day usage for most of my projects. I have been using Netbeans since 6.x. I know it’s Java based IDE which needs powerful machine just like Eclipse. But some of the feature it offers are even not available in commercial competitors. One of the best feature is “Quick Search”, the way it provides search through list of file is awesome. Something similar I have seen is in JetBrains PHPStorm but could not find it in Enterprise class Eclipse.

Google vs Content Farms and Spammers

Google frequently makes changes in Search algorithm, this count reaches somewhere around 350-400 changes a year. It means that there is some change in search algorithm everyday and it creates challenges for Search Engine Specialists and companies who are having SEO and SEM as their primary bread-and-butter. They just have to keep experimenting constantly to find out what works out best.

The change that Google made more than a month back made one of the most consequential algorithm change of last decade which has affected about 12% of search results.

Why IPv4 running out of space? What’s IPv6 and why do we care?

A typical IPv4 address looks like 192.168.88.7 or 99.198.113.90. Where it can not grow after 255.255.255.255 (subnet mask). IPv4 uses 32-bit (four-byte) addresses, which limits the address space to 4,294,967,296 (232) possible unique addresses. However, some are reserved for special purposes such as private networks (~18 million addresses) or multicast addresses (~270 million addresses). This reduces the number of addresses that can potentially be allocated for routing on the public Internet. Read more about IPv4 and IPv4 space exhaustion on WiKiPedia.

Now IPv6 (Internet Protocol version-6) is the one who’s going to save us from this space outage and will be the successor of IPv4. Windows, *nix and other software have support for IPv6 since quite long time now. Typical IPv6 address looks like 2002:7c7d:f78d::7c7d:f78d.
