Add SEO Friendly Page Titles To The WP-Forum WordPress Plugin

Awhile back I found some code that described how to make the page titles for the WP-Forum WordPress plugin SEO friendly. By default WP-Forum includes the site name and title of the forum itself for every page generated by the forum. To generate more web traffic for your site it will be beneficial to modify the page titles so they include post title and/or forum group name. Follow the directions below to dynamically generate new page titles for each forum post.

I have been using Angsuman’s Translator Plugin Pro to provide language translations on numerous WordPress blogs for a long time. Recently I noticed that when visiting translated pages the links contained within those translated pages were linking back to the default language which in my case is English.

Windows XP: Turn Off Auto Play For External USB Hard Drive

By default when you plug in a external hard drive via USB to a Windows XP computer auto play will automatically launch. This can be beneficial if you rarely plug in USB hard drives and when you do you like to decide what action to take such as copying pictures from the drive to the local computer or printing documents from the drive to a network printer. In most scenarios  though you will probably be moving files to and from the external hard drive to your computer and the auto play pop up is annoying. It is even more annoying if you almost always have the external hard drive attached so every single time you reboot your Windows XP computer you have to deal with one more annoying pop up. Below is information on how to disable the automatic auto play pop up per USB hard drive.

I originally thought that I would just be able to drag the applications directly into iTunes, sync my iPod Touch with iTunes, and begin using my new application. I believe this used to be the case before iPhone OS 3.0 was released which is the version of firmware installed on my Touch. Anyhow I attempted to proceed by following the below steps and ran into an error also noted below.
