Hieroglyph In Temple of Abydos

Posted on Updated on

For me, this is really a controversial piece of hieroglyph in the temple of Abydos. Some people (who claim that Egyptians had some contact with aliens) believe that this hieroglyph is real and in original form.

The Abydos-Hieroglyph
Some other says that the carving was altered by the successors of Ramses II (may be Merneptah). It was a common practice among Pharaohs of Egypt to destroy the symbols and glory of their forefathers, in order to showcase themselves. Example is Hatshepsut’s temple at Deir el Bahri, where statues and wall paintings were destroyed by her own son.

Who built the great pyramid of Giza?

Posted on Updated on

The Giza Plateau has three main pyramids. The pyramid of Menkaure, the pyramid of Khafre and the great pyramid of Khufu.

As per the today’s widely accepted assumptions, the pyramid of Menkaure was probably completed in the 26th century BC. Pyramid of Khafre was built during the reign of Khafre who ruled from 2558 to 2532 BC. The great pyramid of Khufu was built during 2580-2560 BC.

Is Sphinx several millennia older than we think it to be?

Posted on Updated on

Many Egyptologist (including Dr. Zahi Hawas, former Minister of State for Antiquities Affairs) insist that Sphinx was built nearly 4500BC, by the builder of 2nd pyramid of the Giza Plateau .i.e. the pyramid of Chephren (also read as Khafre, Khefren and Chephren).

But other researchers like John A. West and Robert Bauval (who first put forwarded the “Orion correlation theory”) believe that the both pyramids & Sphinx are much much older then Egypt civilization. Here I’m summarizing some extracts from their research paper where they are trying to prove that Sphinx is atleast 10 millennium BC old.

Another iOS, new SDK and new features. Users are happy, and developers are ready to dig into APIs.

iOS-9-features

Like it did for the latest version of OS X today, Apple showed off the big new features coming to iOS 9 this fall but it also briefly gave us a look at 30+ other features that will arrive with the release. If you didn’t catch them all when Apple flashed the slide on stage, here’s the full list.

Some of the notables include wireless CarPlay support, new gaming APIs, app thinning features, third-party notifications, audio unit and VPN plug-in extensions, UI testing in Xcode, and much more.

The full list is below and a similar list of features for the new OS X El Capitan is here.

What do you think of these Egyptian hieroglyphics?

Answer by Aasim Naseem Siddiqui:

Well .. this is really a controversial piece of hieroglyph in the temple of
Abydos. Some people (who claim that Egyptians had some contact with aliens) believe that this hieroglyph is real and in original form.

Some other says that the carving was altered by the successors of Ramses II (may be Merneptah). It was a common practice among Pharaohs of Egypt to destroy the symbols and glory of their forefathers, in order to showcase themselves. Example is Hatshepsut’s temple at Deir el Bahri, where statues and wall paintings were destroyed by her own son.

The temple of Abydos was build by Seti-I and finished by his son Ramses II, greatest of all Pharaohs. So it is natural that his successors tried to erase the trans of RamsesII from the mind of common people, and brought their own image at front.

My personal believes are, even if the hieroglyph were re-carved, the exact resemblance of modern tools/weapons in more then five different shapes leaves too many questions to explore. Merely saying it is a result of re-carving doesn't justify the situation. There is lot more to explore.

What do you think of these Egyptian hieroglyphics?

“Redundant Binary Upload” Issue on iTunesConnect

Posted on Updated on

Hey Devs

If you are having following issue on new interface of iTunesConnect

“Redundant Binary Upload. There already exists a binary upload with build version ‘1.0’ for train ‘1.0’”

then you are not alone like forever alone guy. Like me and you, many others are facing this issue. But no worries, the solution is pretty simple.

More than one binary may be uploaded to iTunesConnect if the the Build number (Select the Target, then Xcode -> General -> Build, see the picture below) is increased by adding .1, i.e. if the version is 3.75, then increase it to: 3.75.1, but the Version is still `3.75 for the App (also in iTunesConnect). The build number just has to be unique for each binary that is loaded up to iTunesConnect.

NAlCV

After a new binary is uploaded and processed (~ 10 min), then you can select the new binary and submit it for review. In the picture below you may see the old and the new binary listed in iTunesConnect in the Build section of the current App version (you click the plus sign). Then the new binary is selected -> Saved -> Submit for Review. (Sometimes an error comes when submitting, then just try after a few mins or upload a new binary).

For those inclined to do this automatically with an Xcode script, here is a description of making an automatic script for updating Build numbers Better way of incrementing build number?
