Fix this Annoying Security Warning in IE 8

HTTPS warning in IE

“Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?”

If you open a secure web page inside Internet Explorer 8 (one that begins with https  like the Gmail web site or even Amazon.com), you might see a security warning dialog that says -- “This webpage contains content that will not be delivered using a secure HTTPS connection, which could compromise the security of the entire webpage.”

This is annoying because IE won’t remember your choice and the warning message will appear every time you visit that page or web site. It basically means that the secure (https) web page that you are trying to open contains images and other elements that are hosted on a non-https location. They call it mixed content.

Disable “Mixed Content” Warnings in IE

If you would like to disable this security warning forever, go to Tools -> Internet Options and select the Security tab. Make sure the “Internet” zone is selected and then click the “Custom Level” button. Scroll-down the list of options and set the “Display mixed content” setting from “Prompt” to “Enable.”

This video screencast explains the whole problem and the fix in detail. The mixed content issue can only be fixed by the web developer, you are only suppressing the warning in the browser.

Why Planning is important?

One Night 4 college students were playing till late night and could not study for the test which was scheduled for the next day.In the morning they thought of a plan. They made themselves look as dirty with grease and dirt.
They then went up to the Dean and said that they had gone out to a wedding last night and on their return the tyre of their car burst and they had to push the car all the way back and that they were in no condition to appear for the test.

So the Dean said they could have the re-test after 3 days. They thanked him and said they would be ready by that time.
On the third day they appeared before the Dean. The Dean said that as this was a Special Condition Test, all four were required to sit in separate classrooms for the test.

They all agreed as they had prepared well in the last 3 days.

The Test consisted of 2 questions with a total of 100 Marks.
See Below for the question Paper

Q.1. Your Name........ ......... ......... (2 MARKS)

Q.2. Which tyre burst? (98 MARKS)
          a) Front Left           b) Front Right

          c) Back Left            d) Back Right
