Hot Tips and Tricks to Speed Up Wordpress


Performance is one major factor for any successful website. A website with driven by Wordpress will be more popular than ever, if it is easy to navigate and speedy as could be. Here are some things you should do if you want your WordPress site to have best performance and avoid upcoming problems at high traffic.

1. WPCompressor - Increase loading time up tp 80%

We couldnt believe it! Just by this small plugin, which activates GZIP compression of your website without any changes to your server, you can reduce your site weight to 80%. It uses PHP to activate GZIP instead of .htaccess. wpCompressor automatically compresses the data output and boosts the speed performance of your blog. You can test your speed here.


2. Remove unnecessary Plugins & upgrade current one
Remove all unused plugins wordpress site. Disable them and then physically remove from your web server. Plugins are disabled will affect the speed of a site for WordPress plugin will check whether activated or not. You also must keep up-to-date with the latest version of the plugin you use. Developer would have released a new version because they have modified the code in several ways to make this plugin work better.


3. Minimize PHP and database queries
I also have read great tip on Wpcandy’s simple ways to speed up WordPress. The article makes a lot of sense, cutting down on PHP and database queries.Jadi when the page loads on your site, and your browser must execute PHP query, it adds to the burden of time. If you change the query PHP with static HTML, every time the page is loaded, the browser you only read HTML.


4. Optimize and Repair your Database from myPhpAdmin
Every week or so you should login to your myPhpAdmin and optimize your db. Locate your Wordpress DatabaseTables, check all the tables in the Check Boxes, select the Optimise Tables Option and repair. You would be surprised how well this trick might work, it saved more than 10% of my current database size


5. Use Reliable image hosting service
Try moving the common web images, CSS, JavaScript and other static files to Amazon S3 Storage service and you will notice the average CPU load / memory requirement of the web server will be reduced a lot. Read this step by step guide. Signing up for reseller hosting gives you more power for your own projects. You will have more control of system ressources.



You can also try WP-Offload . This plugin will boost the performance of your blog by seamlessly offloading static content like images, documents and movies. This will greatly reduce bandwidth consumption and the number of HTTP requests issued to your web server. Additional features such as remote image manipulation and thumbnail generation are provided.


6. Install WP Super Cache Plugin
This plugin will generate static html files from your dynamic WordPress blog. After the resulting html files, your webserver will serve that file instead of processing the relatively heavier and more expensive WordPress PHP scripts and would not actually load content from a database at all, so the post will load faster with less stress on your server.


7. PHP Speedy WP
PHP Speedy WP can quickly and easily speed up your WordPress site and increase your blog’s response without too much effort on your part. PHP Speedy WP also allows us to automatically combine all the JS and CSS files into only two files - which in turn helps the opening page of times. CSS Background Images are automatically converted to URI.Dan this data will be useful in reducing the number of HTTP requests even further. And, importantly, is compatible with Internet Explorer, although the data do not support URL

8. Speed up access to your favorite frameworks via the AJAX Libraries API
The AJAX Libraries API is an attempt to make Web applications faster for developers in simple ways by becoming a content distribution network and loading architecture for popular javascript libraries including:
jQuery
prototype
script.aculo.us
MooTools
dojo

You can either link to the source code directly:


Or you can use Google’s API:


By using the google.load() method, your application has high speed, globally available access to a growing list of the most popular, open source and up to date JavaScript libraries.


9. Optimize your images with this great tool
Shrink O’Matic AIR is a great application to easily (batch) resize (shrink) images. This will be able to handle JPGs, GIFs and PNGs. Simply drag and drop images and they will be resized as you wish! Options allow you to choose the output sizes, names and formats.


10. WP CSS
This plugin GZIP and strip whitespace from your CSS file. This plugin allows you to confidently use @ import in the CSS file and not have to worry about what happens at the end user. This can be seen through the style.css file and put all @ import files into it. You also can set the cache expiration time. In addition you can also add CSS files to a specific page or post and put them all into one file.


11. Display page loading time + number of queries
Here is a simple code that can be inserted in your template. This code is useful to know how long it takes to load your page, or how many sql query is executed.

Top 9 tweaks for a faster (and less annoying) Vista PC


The following is what I do directly after a clean install of Windows Vista . This does not mean that everything I do will work for you. Keeping that in mind, ensure you are fully aware of the risks of tweaking your system before doing so. Several of my performance tweaks "reduce" the default functionality of Windows and removes some built in security features. If security is a top priority for you or you are a new user to Vista, refrain from disabling any functionality noted as a security feature.
Point to note: Ensure that you are logged in as an "Administrator" or have Administrator rights before performing any of these steps.
Even though I do these steps directly after a clean install, all of them be done at any time.



Number One: User Account Control

User Account Control or UAC is a new feature in Vista that asks for permission to do system software tasks and also run programs. Unfortunately, this security feature is also annoying. I cannot predict the future of your system or what kind of security vulnerabilities will be used to attack systems, and as such, you need to decide for yourself if you desire to keep UAC active, but if you wish to disable it, here is how I do it:
With the default Category Control Panel:
  1. Head to Start
  2. Select Control Panel
  3. Select System and Maintenance
  4. Select Administrative Tools
  5. Select the System Configuration button
  6. Select the Continue button (if UAC is active)
  7. Select the Tools Tab
  8. Select "Disable UAC"
  9. Select the Launch button
  10. Select the Ok button to close the panel
You will have to reboot for the setting to take effect.

Number Two: System Restore and Indexing Features

If you are experiencing "random" slowdowns and "high" CPU usage for no reason, these two features are the most likely cause of the problem. These features are also a major cause of "missing" disk space. System Restore could be taking up to 15% of your hard drive space, just on its own. On a 200GB hard drive, that is 30GB!
System Restore Service creates system snap shots or "restore points" for returning to at a later time. Every time you install a program or new driver, plus on a schedule, this service creates a restore point to roll back to if a problem occurs. This is the first thing that I get rid of on a clean installation. If you use this and enjoy it, good for you. I never will. I feel it is faster and less hassle to just install clean. If you do not use System Restore Service, I highly recommend you back up your important files using, for example, a CD/DVD burner or an external USB 2.0 hard drive. A rather good (and possibly the only) reason to use this "feature" is to roll back your OS after installing an unknown program or testing software. For example: BETA software of any kind or before installing a Service Pack . NOTE: If you disable this service, your previous "restore points" will be deleted. If, for what ever reason, you do not want this to happen, do not disable this service.
The Indexing Service, by default, searches the start menu and the user account directory (C:/Users//) to assist in faster searching. However, with the tasks that I personally do, I rarely, use the Windows Search feature. The indexing feature has improved, though, as it is much more sensitive to an active user and will reduce the resources used while a person is actively using the system.
Get rid of System Restore and Indexing. Where do you find it?
With the default Category Control Panel:
  1. Head to Start
  2. Select Control Panel
  3. Select System and Maintenance
  4. Select Backup and Restore Center
  5. Select Create a restore point or change settings (on the left side)
  6. Select the Continue button (if UAC is active)
  7. Select System Protection Tab (should be there already)
  8. Uncheck your hard drives listed under "Automatic restore points"
  9. Select the Turn System Restore Off button
  10. Select the Ok button to apply the settings
With the Classic View:
  • Head to Start
  • Select Control Panel
  • Select Backup and Restore Center
  • Select Create a restore point or change settings (on the left side)
  • Select the Continue button (if UAC is active)
  • Select System Protection Tab (should be there already)
  • Uncheck your hard drives listed under "Automatic restore points"
  • Select the Turn System Restore Off button
  • Select the Ok button to apply the settings
You can now disable the Indexing Feature:
With the default Category Control Panel:
  1. Head to Start
  2. Select Control Panel
  3. Select System and Maintenance
  4. Select Indexing Options
  5. Select the Modify button
  6. Select the Continue button (if UAC is active)
  7. Select the Show all locations button
  8. Select the Continue button (if UAC is active)
  9. Double click "Users" in the "Summary of selected locations"
  10. Uncheck Users directory
  11. Double click "Start Menu " in the "Summary of selected locations"
  12. Uncheck Start Menu directory
  13. Select the Ok button to close the panel
With the Classic Control Panel:
  1. Head to Start
  2. Select Control Panel
  3. Select System and Maintenance
  4. Select Indexing Options
  5. Select the Modify button
  6. Select the Continue button (if UAC is active)
  7. Select the Show all locations button
  8. Select the Continue button (if UAC is active)
  9. Double click "Users" in the "Summary of selected locations"
  10. Uncheck Users directory
  11. Double click "Start Menu " in the "Summary of selected locations"
  12. Uncheck Start Menu directory
  13. Select the Ok button to close the panel

Number Three: Windows Sidebar

The new Windows Vista Sidebar uses between 12MB and 20MB of RAM with the default 3 Gadgets and no news headline feed.
Desire to disable the Sidebar? Several ways exist, but here are two of them:
  1. Locate the Windows Sidebar icon in the System Tray (lower right, near the clock display)
    1. Show hidden icons if it is not displayed
  2. Right click the icon to bring up the context menu
  3. Select Properties
  4. Uncheck Start Sidebar when Windows starts
  5. Select the Ok button to apply the settings
You can disable the Sidebar also by:
  • Right click on an unused area of the Sidebar (between Gadgets or at the bottom) to bring up the context menu
  • Select Properties
  • Uncheck Start Sidebar when Windows starts
  • Select the Ok button to apply the settings
If you wish to close the Sidebar now:
  1. Locate the Windows Sidebar icon in the System Tray (lower right, near the clock display)
    1. Show hidden icons if it is not displayed
  2. Right click the icon to bring up the context menu
  3. Select Exit
or:
  • Right click on an unused area of the Sidebar (between Gadgets or at the bottom) to bring up the context menu
  • Select Exit

Number Four: Remote Assistance and Remote Desktop

Remove Remote Assistance and ensure Remote Desktop is disabled.
Take Note: Remote Desktop is not available on Vista Home or Vista Home Premium, so the option will not be there.
Where do you find it?
With the default Category Control Panel:
  1. Head to Start
  2. Select Control Panel
  3. Select System and Maintenance
  4. Select System
  5. Select Remote settings (on the left side)
  6. Select the Continue button (if UAC is active)
  7. Uncheck "Allow Remote Assistance connections to this computer " option
  8. Ensure "Don't allow connections to this computer" option is checked
  9. Select the Ok button to apply the settings
With the Classic Control Panel:
  1. Head to Start
  2. Select Control Panel
  3. Select System
  4. Select Remote settings (on the left side)
  5. Select the Continue button (if UAC is active)
  6. Uncheck "Allow Remote Assistance connections to this computer " option
  7. Ensure "Don't allow connections to this computer" option is checked
  8. Select the Ok button to apply the settings

Number Five: Vista Aero (Themes)

Reduce the overhead associated with Windows Vista's new Themes. As a side note, the new Aero is a big reason to upgrade to Vista and I really enjoy the new look. However, if you are using an older system that does not meet the recommended requirements to run the new Aero Glass engine, disable the themes to make it look like Windows 2000/XP (with its new theme disabled) and save the memory.
With the default Category Control Panel:
  1. Head to Start
  2. Select Control Panel
  3. Select Appearance and Personalization
  4. Select Personalization
  5. Select Theme
  6. From the drop down box, select "Windows Classic"
  7. Select the Ok button
With the Classic Control Panel:
  1. Head to Start
  2. Select Control Panel
  3. Select Personalization
  4. Select Theme
  5. From the drop down box, select "Windows Classic"
  6. Select the Ok button
Fine tune visual performance options:
With the default Category Control Panel:
  1. Head to Start
  2. Select Control Panel
  3. Select System and Maintenance
  4. Select Performance Information and Tools
  5. Select Adjust visual effects (on the left side)
  6. Select the Continue button (if UAC is active)
  7. Select "Adjust for best performance."
  8. Select the Ok button
With the Classic Control Panel:
  1. Head to Start
  2. Select Control Panel
  3. Select System
  4. Select Advanced system settings (on the left side)
  5. Select Advanced Tab
  6. Under Performance, select the Settings button
  7. Select Visual Effects Tab
  8. Select "Adjust for best performance."
  9. Select the Ok button
After that, Disable and Stop the Themes service.
With the default Category Control Panel:
  1. Head to Start
  2. Select All Programs
  3. Select Administrative Tools
  4. Select Services
  5. Select "Themes" service (Double Click)
  6. Select General Tab
  7. In the Startup type: select "Disabled"
  8. In the Service status area: select "Stop"
  9. Select the Ok button to close the panel

Number Six: Updated Drivers

Download and install all updated drivers from the hardware manufacture sites. I cannot tell you what site you need to go to for your system components as I have no idea what is installed in your system, but do your computer a favor and get updated drivers for everything. Contact your PC builder or each manufacture for each item installed in your system.
As with every Windows release in the past, updated drivers fix bugs and also usually increase performance from the default OS drivers installed.
Usually, after the installation of each driver, you must reboot. If the driver installation program does not ask you to reboot, I still recommend to do so.

Number Seven: Lighten System Tray

After updating all my drivers, I remove any excess icons (all of them, basically) from the system tray (lower right) and check the services (Number Nine) to ensure nothing else was installed (like NVIDIA's "driver helper." Contrary to popular belief, those little "quick access" icons take up a lot of room and increase boot time.

Number Eight: Add/Remove Programs

Uninstall Windows Vista features that are unused:
With the default Category Control Panel:
  1. Head to Start
  2. Select Control Panel
  3. Select Programs
  4. Select Programs and Features
  5. Select Turn Windows features on or off (on the left side)
  6. Select the Continue button (if UAC is active)
  7. Check or Uncheck needed/unneeded Windows features
  8. Select the Ok button

Number Nine: Services

Adjust for any additional unneeded services. Windows Vista Services Configurations.
With the default Category Control Panel:
  1. Head to Start
  2. Select Control Panel
  3. Select System and Maintenance
  4. Select Administrative Tools
  5. Select Services
  6. Select a service to adjust by double-clicking
  7. In the General tab, Startup type section, select Automatic (Delayed Start), Automatic, Manual or Disabled.
If you like, you can also do: Start --> All Programs --> Accessories --> Run --> type in services.msc --> Select OK.
After configuring all services that you desire to change, reboot to see the effects of your tweaking.
Note: Do not use msconfig to stop services. It basically is "disabling" a service. Use the above procedure and set to "manual" instead for testing purposes.
If you have not already, reboot now.
If you have rebooted, do it again.

How to play a Video as your DeskTop Background like a Wallpaper


Are you bored of those static images on your Desktop Background? Do you feel the need to use a Video in its Place? Ok then, I will tell you how you can do it! Just do as I say and you will have a cool video playing as your Desktop wallpaper.
Let me tell you(most of you will already know) that Windows Vista Ultimate has a feature known as DreamScene which allows you to set a Video as a BackGround. But this feature is not present in any other versions of Windows Vista. As most of the people have already shifted to Vista from their old OS, I will give a detailed tutorial on how you can get started with DreamScene.
Download the DreamScene pack for Vista. It is a RAR file. Extract the RAR file in any folder and then follow the steps:
  1. Run “Install.bat” file with Administrator rights (i.e. Right Click on it and Click on: Run as administrator)
  2. Follow the steps in the command prompt
  3. Reboot, or Run “Reload.bat” file with normal (non-Admin) rights (i.e. just Double Click on it)
After you follow these steps Right Click on your Desktop. When the list opens up, you will find an option called “Play DreamScene”. This shows that you have installed this Vista Add-On properly.
Just remember that you can only play .WMV or .MPG files as your video Backgrounds. Now Right Click on the Video file you want to play as your Background. Select “Set as Desktop Background”. Once you do it, you cam see the same Video playing in your Desktop as the Wallpaper.
If you want to Pause this video in the Background, just Right click on the Desktop and select “Pause DreamScene”. You are done now!
Many people who still use XP miss this feature! You can use the XPScene software for Windows XP to use this feature.

3 Amazing Firefox Hacks


What good is a browser unless you can tweak it, hack it and bend it to your will? No good at all. The more you can hack it, the better it is. And that means that Firefox must be a great browser as when ever you feel that you know everything about it you come across a bunch of hidden (and some not-so-secret) tips and tricks available that will crank Firefox up and pimp your browser. Make it faster, cooler, more efficient. So today I have come up with 3 amazing firefox tricks you might not be aware of.

1. Save Session For All Tabs Opened In Multiple Firefox Windows

If you are an ardent user of Firefox then you may be aware that when more than one firefox windows are opened up, in that case when you close a firefox window, it does ask me the option to save the session and exit, rather it ask to close all the tabs in that firefox window, but it wont save the tabs in other windows. So this way you could not save the session for multiple tabs opened in multiple firefox windows.
In such a case, there is only one option left to save the session for all the tabs opened in separate firefox windows by terminating firefox through task manager, here is how you do it.
Press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to quickly launch task manager, click the process tab and locate firefox.exe and right click selecting the exe and click End Process Tree.
Next time when you will open firefox it will open all the tabs in all the windows that were previously open.

2. Open & Log In to Multiple Accounts Gmail, Facebook, or Twitter Accounts In FireFox

Firefox extension CookiePie manages Firefox’s cookies—small bits of text stored on your computer that tell a site you’re logged in, for example—in such a way that you can log into the same site multiple times.
How to use it?
Just follow the steps given below:
  • Install CookiePie Firefox Extension.
  • Create a new tab or use an existing one.
  • Open the context menu of the tab (i.e: Press the right mouse button over the tab) and select “Toggle On/Off CookiePie”.
  • A cookiepie icon will appear over the tab.
  • Go to a site (e.g.: http://www.gmail.com) and login into your account.
  • Create another tab.
  • Enable CookiePie on that tab too.
  • Log in with another account on the same site.

3. Bypass Download Waiting Time On Rapidshare, Megaupload, zShare, Mediafire etc

SkipScreen is a really useful firefox  addon for lot of users who download  various types of files from the popular file and media sharing sites like Rapidshare, Megaupload, zShare, Mediafire, and more.
Most of these file sharing web sites have a annoying waiting time limit before a free user can start downloading the requested file. So, SkipScreen can be really useful in saving your time wasted seeing the download waiting time as it removes the screen of download waiting time from these media sharing sites.
SkipScreen monitors the pages where you see the download time and will get the content you want before the download waiting time completes.

Samsung Wave - Review and Specifications

Samsung Wave review:

Samsung has released its highly-anticipated bada-powered phone Samsung Wave in India. Samsung Wave really boasts of some impressive tech specs that combine a super AMOLED screen, 1GHz processor and a slim design. But how does it fare against the established heavyweights such as mid-range Android, RIM, Apple and Symbian devices? Does this handset pose any potential threat to the leading players and existing mobile platforms?

Undoubtedly, first impression matters. And Samsung Wave is the clear winner on the first inspection as far as looks, feel and quality is concerned. It's a slim and lightweight device with a stunning Super AMOLED screen display. Surprisingly, the device appears equally impressive when it is switched off. Furthermore, the latest Samsung bada phone gives a sturdy feel in the hand with its polished metallic body.

Before, we delve further let's recap some of the credentials this device has been accredited with in the recent times. Samsung Wave has garnered enough curiosity with the many 'firsts' this device has been labeled with lately. Samsung Wave is the first DivX HD certified phone, the first device to operate on Samsung's new Bada OS platform, the first Bluetooth 3.0 enabled device, first one to introduce Super AMOLED screen and the first smartphone to feature the latest Picsel File Viewer.

Now back to the basics. The most stunning feature this device incorporates is certainly its Super AMOLED screen display. You need to see it to believe it! The moment you switch on the device, that Super AMOLED screen jumps to life – and, believe us, it is quite a sight to behold. The Wave's 3.3-inch 480 x 800 pixel touchscreen is amazingly crisp and vibrant displaying colours and details in the highest quality. And we believe, the Wave could easily give some high-end devices – such as the Nexus One – a serious run for their money.

The next feature to look for is Wave's touchscreen interface. Again, Samsung has surpassed its previous standards with regards to the touchscreen interface on the Wave – it's responsive, tactile and seemingly flawless. For instance, if you compared it to the touchscreen fluidity of a device like the HTC Hero, there really is no comparison – and the Hero, in many respects, is generally considered a better device.

However, there are some flip sides to this device as well. Similar to other devices in the market, Samsung Wave too cannot guarantee perfection. If you are using this device for the first time, you will face a tough time to get accustomed to this device and to learn how it actually works at first place. You might experience UI reasonably tight. Also, you will not get any video introduction like the one you get on the HTC devices. Ultimately, you are pretty much lost in limbo to figure it out for yourself.

The other cool features that come embedded with Wave smartphone do nullify the very few negatives it has got. The device offers two home screen modes: The first one comes with five home screens where live widgets can be stored. While, the second one is somewhat like a generic menu, but just laid out over an additional three home screens and features things like Twitter, Facebook, Address Book, Email and Settings etc. Also, you can easily switch between the two "screen modes", as all you simply need to do is to press the Wave's main button, which is located in between the Call and End-Call button. However, for the first-time users, it may take some time to figure out this feature, which again can be a bit annoying.

Apple admits iPhone 4 antenna issues


Since the iPhone 4 went on sale Thursday, numerous reports have begun to appear online about consumers having strange issues with the antenna. Namely, that if they put their hand over the new steel band that encases the iPhone, they lose reception.

Apple has responded with a statement:
"Gripping any mobile phone will result in some attenuation of its antenna performance, with certain places being worse than others depending on the placement of the antennas. This is a fact of life for every wireless phone. If you ever experience this on your iPhone 4, avoid gripping it in the lower left corner in a way that covers both sides of the black strip in the metal band, or simply use one of many available cases."
We did a test call today, and found that yes, indeed, put your hand on the bottom of the iPhone (something most people tend to do) to hold it while chatting, and reception takes a nose dive. Then we tried putting one of Apple's new "Bumper" products, similar to a case, over the phone, and reception improved. The bumpers come in several colors, and sell for a whopping $29.99 each. All it is is a plastic strip that goes around the iPhone. But if it lets you hold the phone while speaking, it is worth considering as an investment.

Firefox 4 is on the way and the beta version has been released for the testing purpose. The new version 4 of the most popular browser is stunning in looks and performance. Here are some tweaks and ways which can be used to Speed Up Firefox 4.

Now in the filter field type in the following values one by one and set its value accordingly. For eg, type network.http.pipelining, you will see the corresponding value appearing below, double clicking it will set the value to true or false and if its some thing which has a value to be set, a popup window appears where you could enter the value for the field.

If any of the above value doesn’t appear, then follow the steps below.
For a setting with true or false value. For eg, if you don’t see the value being displayed below while typing content.notify.backoffcount on the filter field just right click on an empty space and select Boolean from New. Type content.notify.ontimer in the box and set its value to true.

The same is applicable if you are setting a integer value, except that you need to select Integer from the right click menu.

  • For this, Press Ctrl + Shift + J in your firefox browser. You would see the error console window being displayed.
  • Click inside the code field and paste the following code and press on Evaluate.
    Components.classes["@mozilla.org/browser/nav-history-service;1"].getService(Components.interfaces.nsPIPlacesDatabase).DBConnection.executeSimpleSQL(“VACUUM”);

For some reason if you don’t remember the password used to login to your google accounts or any other, and want to get back the hidden password, there is an easy way to view those passwords hidden behind the asterisk (*) characters.

You might have given the option to save the password for that particular site when your browser asked, the first time while entering the user name and password while logging in. The browser will automatically display the password if you have saved it before and you only need to press the log in button. But if you need to know / don’t remember the password that is hidden behind the asterisk characters here is dead simple way to see those passwords quickly.
For Firefox users, there’s always the option to see saved passwords. But this trick is far more simple than that and works on Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, Netscape, Safari and Opera. Here’s what you have to do.
Visit the log in screen of the desired website.

The browser will automatically shown the passwords in the fields, but will be hidden with the asterisks characters.

Iphone 5 Leaked Screenshot

iPhone has always been the talk of the town due to Apple’s brilliant marketing strategies and a great fan following. iPhone 4 has not even reached various markets, even after 1.5 million sales on the very first day of being made available to the public. And here we have a crazy update! iPhone 5, successor of iPhone 4, we know nothing about the Hardware and other specifications, but we surely have a leaked screenshot.

Iphone 5 Leaked Screenshot

iPhone 5 Leaked Screenshot
I came across this screenshot on Twitter when someone posted it. I am unable to trace back, who posted it. (Sorry for that)
According to the screenshot, it appears that iPhone 5 may have an Antenna. The obvious question is WHY? It may be because of the iPhone 4 Holding issues which led to reduced network coverage. (Just guessing)
Or that antenna may be an extra accessory which would have been included while taking the photo. We never know!
And after all this, we are not even sure weather this is a real Leaked Screenshot iPhone 5 or not, as it appears very similar to iPhone 4 with just an Antenna attached. (I can also be a Photoshop trick) Some guy would just be kidding around with all those Apple enthusiasts out there.
Note: Currently I am considering it as a Rumour, but it may well be true!
