Looks like we are back to Alwah
I am getting some time now to get back to Alwah.net, it has been few years since I stopped that website and lost all these clients, not a good start.
However, I am back now and this time is not going to be stupid as last time
A long past due project that comes to life within 3 weeks.
IraqiNames.com with flexibility to add new names by users, add transliterations and name means.
I admit, I am having some free time. Read more >>>
I am not sure if the hacking attempt late last year or I messed something up while using my Excel-based website admin, my DB was messed up and I had to spend around 3 hours to clear and restore.
I really need to finish that Excel-based DB autobackup application soon.
It has been few months, and all my attempts to bring back Alwah were a complete fail
I admit, I am not spending as much time as I intended, but I was not planning this, and it is bugging me with nightmares. I have to fix it, I need to fix, it is such a lose.
So the limited plan I thought I have is not so "Limited"
My files online have crossed the 25GB limit, that made the people at my hosting company to contact me and complain that my files is taking too much space and I need to delete some.
IT was a shock, but I remember that there was talking for a while about how "Unlimited plans" are not so "Unlimited". Read more >>>
Spent few hours (when was trying to fix one of my clients email issues) into moving most of my sites to my own server.
This was prepared for few weeks now, in addition to my client sites, I also moved File1.net, DCave.com, TrioCouture.com, VBAXLMan.com. Most of them were linked to this site.
The new challange now is to host email server on my own and start providing email services.
After few hours of digging and playing, I managed to run the SQL server 2008 on my 1st Server.
Now I am ready to go, Online server with SQL database that support Arabic and ready to go.
I might just tweak the speed a little bit. Go on ANmar, the road is plain in front of you
I started these days uploading my own VBA function lib to my website.
You can find them by search for VBA function
These are the actual tools that I am using in my daily VBA programming in Excel (and sometimes in Classic ASP). Let me know if you have any question regarding any of those.
After few months of working in ANmars.com (also ANmar.us) I notice that the home page is kind of slow.
So I give it a thought and decided to go a head and update my SQL commands in the home page only to be faster.
Basically what I did was combining all home page SQL commands into one (actually two) instead of the way it was executing (was executing around 15 SQL commands).

I have to do it. And I did.
After few years of pushing the CMS away from me, I finally joined it.
Created the website XL f(x)s (I already had the domain for a while now) using WordPress, and did some updation.
No knowledge is bad, so learning WordPress, even late, is good, also after all these months of experiences of HTML and CSS, the WordPress does make sense.
Some updates were made to Folder8 during recent few days.
After I received our family videos from Baghdad (with tons of old family photos)
I decided to share these videos with family. I have to admit I built Folder8 having that in mind. Read more >>>
I had to notice that having a lot of tags in my Questions and Answers causing a delay in reading that page.
Blog tags mechanism had different approach, but tags for Questions and Answers are kind of wider and open for more in future. Read more >>>
Attempt failed to establish my own server.
I was looking to a simple cheap easy-to-follow method to create my own server hosting my own website(s) on one of my machines, but it failed.
It is clear that the DNS/IP/CNAME settings where I don't have any experience in were the main thing against me. I tried to avoid that using No-IP.com or DNSExit.com with something called "cloaking" to stop showing IP to end user, but it wasn't what I am looking for. Read more >>>
I had to learn this technique, linking two domains to one actual site, not redirecting.
And after few searching, I got it and finally linked ANmar.us to ANmars.com.
That was joyful and promising, now I just need to remember how to do it to link Alwa7.net and Alwah.net to Alwa7.com after it is ready to be used.
I might also revisit that procedure and generate screenshot for it, sounds a very good idea now.
And now for the second time, I bought another host with the same company. It is all thanksgiving blank friday's fault, the discount was too much that I couldn't resist it, especially when they include renewal price with it.
This time I got the domain ANmar.us (or as I call it ANmarus) and we yesterday bought another domain Shoozii.com preparing it for the new diary site (or journal), the idea was Afnan's and the domain name was manely from Shukran's name.
Let us hope that we all keep the energy up regarding this project
After few days of trying and failing, I managed tonight to have access to my own server, it is actually a folder on my own laptop that I can access using an IP address+Port.
It was indeed one of my oldest dreams, to get my own server, I don't have one yet, but I know how to do one, I was lost among the IPs, ISPs, DNSs, and stuff like that until made it.
The trick was that my ISP was blocking the port 80, so I have to add another port to my Firewall, then add a port forward in my router firewall (Since I am behind a router) to have access to it.
Check my free subdomain linked to my ip here ANmar.Hopto.org Read more >>>
After few days of ideas and thoughts, I added my all testimonials to my site (ANmars.com) with a small slider at home screen, still need to add the "Testimonials" page, which will be in few days.
Folder8.com is now online, I have this idea for a while now, could finaly save few days to implement it.
Folder8 is my vision on how sharing should be, user can create folder (of three types of folders) with no registration.

Few days ago I had that app in facebook to help me import all my facebook status posts and links into an Excel sheet.
Link to first post
The challange was to combine them both, since Get Me My Data does each type of post in a seperate process, and the one that does all wall is not alighned well.
So I created an Excel spreadsheet called fb.xlsx that does that, which is:
- Reads from the CSV generated by Get me my data into Excel sheet (both Status posts and links posts). Read more >>>
After few months now, it looks like Alwah is going up.
And the Google PR is 3.Read more >>>
They have been trying that for a while but after some attempts they could access the database.
File1.net my first website faced a hacking attempt.
I liked that, that proves that the website is grabbing some visitors now, and it is becoming more and more popular.Read more >>>
This is not good.
It has been more than 6 months since I last added features to Alwah.net, and I don't like that.Read more >>>
Shukran is now has her own blog, it is here Shukran's Shake and it took me longer than I planned due to some changes in the template.
Anyhow, I am learning new stuff doing all these blogs, and will be doing more soon.
Searching for a blog for my middle lovely daughter Shukran
She has really good attitude and really may be the one that will involve into online stuff the most.
Let's hope that
This is a very good diagram that shows how the web developing and related design knowledges are structured.

I just found out that I have 24 domain names that I need to track and control.
Most of them are not online yet, hoo, I got to keep up working on this to make them online.
After doing some searches, I found the design I am looking for.
It is more like me, and attractive.
So, after buying it, started to implement. this process will take a while.
Now my eldest has her own blog, using the same old skin
Which using the same engine I talked about earlier.
Advancing needs more aggressive rules
It is true, I tried it and still doing it all the time.
Meanning, that if you want to advance in any subject, you have to got some rules that are more aggressive than usual
Yesterday, my youngest daughter asked to have her own blog.
I said, yes sure
After we searched for a free CSS templates, we found one and I spent the next 4 hours working with it.
Now, she got one, much easier to deal with, much elegant. (Thanks to my growing experience)
Check out her blog here: ANmars.com/Afnan
After doing my youngest daughter blog, (Afnan's corner), I tried to do kind of universal blog enging that can fit any HTML template skin after some work need to be done in HTML > ASP coding, this will also help when any of my kids or relative asked fo a blog, in my website domain.
So here are what I have done so far:
I will try to post also more blog skins
That is it....
Why DCave? that is another story, read the full article to know.....!!Read more >>>
This is the new banner
They said "Needing is the mother of invention", or somthing like that
That is what is hapenning here with me, I had to go to the graphic section to make some beautiful stuff.
More graphic changes are comming... especially in VBAXLMan.comRead more >>>
It looks like sometimes the complicated solution (advanced one) will not be as effictive as the simple cheap one.
I was used to reCaptcha for a while now, even though i am facing some spam recently though that.
So I am changing to a simple one, after few searches, I got this one.
It is stupidely simple, let me see if it will work and prevent the spam or not.
I am thinking now that I do the VBAXLMan.com website idea to another domain.
May be a storage that enables users to host all thier digital work, I am thinking of buying domains like:
Or somthing similar.
After that, VBAXLMan.com can have my work as VBAXLMan, my answers and classes in addition to some lessons in ExcelLEt us see where these ideas will take me
VBAXLMan.com is also back, will try to finish it by the end of this month.
It enables you to host all your digital work.
