Why Use WordPress

Why use WordPress in a classroom and for production websites?  Well, one reason is that one in four websites is now powered by WordPress.

The milestone figure doesn’t represent a fraction of all websites that have a CMS: WordPress now powers 25 percent of the Web.

The latest data comes from W3Techs, which measures both usage and market share: “WordPress is used by 58.7% of all the websites whose content management system we know. This is 25.0% of all websites.” While these numbers naturally fluctuate over the course of the month, the general trend for WordPress has been slow but steady growth.

“We should be comfortably past 25% by the end of the year,” Automattic founder Matt Mullenweg declared. “The big opportunity is still the 57% of websites that don’t use any identifiable CMS yet, and that’s where I think there is still a ton of growth for us (and I’m also rooting for all the other open source CMSes).”

BestOf: Wireless Nework Watcher

Everyone in my neighborhood is so close, and along with XFinity routers, everyone attaches to everyone else’s Bluetooth and WiFi without much thought at all over various times.

When I wanted to monitor my WiFi I used one of my favorite tools Wireless Network Watcher from NirSoft.  I had forgotten one of their other cute little tools WakeMeOnLan which will allow me to shut off my computers and wake them up prior to getting up in the morning.  Inexplicably difficult on the BIOS anymore.

wnetwatcherWireless Network Watcher is a small utility that scans your wireless network and displays the list of all computers and devices that are currently connected to your network.
For every computer or device that is connected to your network, the following information is displayed: IP address, MAC address, the company that manufactured the network card, and optionally the computer name.
You can also export the connected devices list into html/xml/csv/text file, or copy the list to the clipboard and then paste into Excel or other spreadsheet application.
