How to use T-Mobile/MetroPCS as your Home Internet

Hi guys,

How are you doing.

Today I am going to share a small trick that would save you $50-$100 every month you are paying to your current home internet provider. I did not want to do 2 year agreement with Verizon FiOS, as I will be moving to another city within a month, so I found this setup works for me.

Basically, what you are trying to do is to tether your T-Mobile/MetroPCS unlimited internet plan and connect it to your router. By connecting any device to the router you can access internet on that device.

This method is helpful, when you have a XBox or Roku or any such devices connected to your TV and stream music and videos.

Here is what you require.

MySQLi Wrapper for PHP

I was very much interested in the database class of CodeIgniter, especially the Active Records.

I was quite satisfied with an old mysql wrapper that I have been using for long time. But I’ve decided to start using MySQLi for all my future projects so started to write my own database wrapper for php.

php.net official recommend the usage of mysqli over mysql if we are using MySQL database version 4.1.3 or more.

The mysqli extension, or as it is sometimes known, the MySQL improved extension, was developed to take advantage of new features found in MySQL systems versions 4.1.3 and newer. The mysqli extension is included with PHP versions 5 and later.

The class has been made available online for free and is available at https://bitbucket.org/getvivekv/php-mysqli-class

For a complete documentation, refer https://bitbucket.org/getvivekv/php-mysqli-class/wiki/Home

The code was heavily inspired from CodeIgniter free library. The code is freely available for anyone to download. If you find any error or have any feature to add, please report me. You can also post new issue if you find any bug.

Fuse – Open Source Ticket Management System

Hey,

I am glad to release a free and open source ticket management system – “Fuse”.

Fuse is a simple ticket system which requires nearly zero configuration. It is built using CodeIgniter and Twitter Bootstrap frameworks. Fuse does not boast any special features. It is designed for small size organization with a couple of staffs managing the tickets.

Fuse Ticket Management System is still in development and is available for downloading at Fuse Website

Fuse offers basic functions of a ticket system. This was developed using CodeIgniter framework in less than 8 days. The development is still going on. I am not a CodeIgniter guru, this was my simply try to refresh my memory about CodeIgntier PHP Framework. If you find any bugs in the application, please do report.
