The 99 Club

I came across this beautiful story on Nikhil’s blog.

Once upon a time, there lived a King who, despite his luxurious lifestyle, was neither happy nor content. One day, the King came upon a servant who was singing happily while he worked. This fascinated the King; why was he, the Supreme Ruler of the Land, unhappy and gloomy, while a lowly servant had so much joy.

Later in the day, he sought the advice of his most trusted advisor. After hearing the King’s woes and the servant’s story, the advisor said, “Your Majesty, I believe that the servant has not been made part of The 99 Club.”

“The 99 Club? And what exactly is that?” the King inquired. The advisor replied, “Your Majesty, to truly know what The 99 Club is, place 99 Gold coins in a bag and leave it at this servant’s doorstep.”

When the servant opened the bag, he let out a great shout of joy… So many gold coins! He began to count them. After several counts, he was at last convinced that there were 99 coins. He wondered, “What could’ve happened to that last gold coin? Surely, no one would leave 99 coins!

He looked everywhere he could, but that final coin was elusive. Finally, exhausted, he decided that he was going to have to work harder than ever to earn that gold coin and complete his collection.

From that day, the servant’s life was changed. He was overworked and chastised his family for not helping him make that 100th gold coin. He stopped singing while he worked.

Witnessing this drastic transformation, the King was puzzled. When he sought his advisor’s help, the advisor said, “Your Majesty, the servant has now officially joined The 99 Club.” He continued, “The 99 Club is a name given to those people who have enough to be happy but are never contented, because they’re always yearning and striving for that extra 1 telling to themselves: “Let me get that one final thing and then I will be happy for life .”

“We can be happy, even with little, but the minute we’re given something bigger and better, we want even more! We lose our sleep, our happiness, we hurt the people around us; all these as a price for our growing needs and desires. That’s what joining The 99 Club is all about.”

Game Over

A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his Customer,
"This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it to you."
The barber puts a five rupee coin in one hand and two one rupee
coins(1+1=2) in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, "Which do
you want, son?" The boy takes the two one rupee coins and leaves. "What
did I tell you?" said the barber. "That kid never learns!"
Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of
the ice cream store. "Hey, son! May I ask you a question?Why did you take
two one rupee coins instead of the five rupee coin?" The boy licked his

Custom Coming Soon Page Plugin 1.0.9 [‘Too many redirects’ Bug Fix]

Recently, while working on another blog, I needed to show a Coming Soon page till I finish up the background work.

The Custom Coming Soon Page Plugin is the most awesome option that I have got till date. I am using the free version, but if you are ready to shell out some cash, you can get a Pro version also.

The plugin worked perfectly just a few days ago, but yesterday, once after deactivating the plugin, it never got activated again !! As soon as I tried to activate the plugin, it went into an infinite loop and after a few seconds, crashed showing the message ‘The site is redirecting the request in a way that will never complete’. After that there was no way in which I could even login to the wp-admin page of the blog. The same error message flashed on the screen every time I tried access the site.

btw, if you are in this stage, just do one thing, go to the file manager and in the wp-content >> plugins folder, just delete the Custom Coming Soon Page Plugin and then try to browse your site again. Hopefully you should be good to go.

Now the only thing is that though you have recovered your site back, you won’t be able to use the plugin

But worry not, I have found out the bug and also the bug fix !! So in just a few or to be specific just 3 code changes, the plugin will be back to work.

Follow these steps and you will be good to go:

1. Install this plugin on your wordpress blog and DO NOT click the ‘Activate’ button.
