As SARS Corona II (CoVID-19) wears on Grammar Captive picks up speed. It is hoped that very soon a new test server for the nudge.online, Grammar Captive, and GC Tutor websites will be set up on nudge.online’s new equipment. This test server will be integrated with nudge.online’s new host server, HostLabs (formerly Lunarpages), and the Bitbucket cloud.

The advantages of all of this are the ability to develop online when the HostLabs’ server is down or no internet connection is available, local testing that will be immediately compatible with the remote HostLabs’ server, and accessibility to any and all desired joint development initiatives.

Yes, all of this takes time. This said, patience and perseverance — namely, time — conquers all.

I wish my Saudi and other Muslim friends my very best on probably the most celebrated holiday of the Muslim calendar.

رمضان كريم

It has been a very slow start this year, but things will surely pick up once the CoVID-19 health crisis is behind us.

While you are fasting this year, keep in mind that your immune system is your best protection against the spread of any virus.

Stay strong. Keep your distance. And, stay healthy.

Best wishes!

Address Change

The doubling of address notification under the menu item Contact/Info in the navigation bar has been corrected.

In addition, Grammar Captive’s new physical address has been added and the old address removed.

Further, because the content now loads only upon clicking, the email address and telephone number can no longer be picked up by alien webcrawlers that use the information for unwanted solicitation.

GC Tutor on iPad

The multi-lingual feature of GC Tutor is now available on iPad, though it remains a better entry from a computer.

The iOS operating environment does not take kindly to parallax, but at least the images that highlight the message are now visible.

More Corrective Action

It was recently discovered that the link to the author of the Grammar Captive webdesign, Hashimori Iwato (橋守岩人), was not working properly. This failure has been remedied. You can find the link at the bottom of the page, and you are of course welcome to take a look.

My apologies to the designer.

Damage Control

The still yet unexplained disappearance of the multilingual functionality of the GC Tutor landing page has been remedied and the functionality restored.

Also, the failure of the Captcha functionality in Grammar Captive’s local search engines will be restored soon. A PHP upgrade appears necessary.

Thank you for your patience. This year will be the transition year from development to production.

Happy New Year!

In celebration of the New Year Grammar Captive has completed a long awaited task. GC Tutor is now available in five languages: Arabic, French, German, Japanese, and of course, English.

If your browser language is any of the above, the GC Tutor webpage will now open in that language and upon clicking where appropriate will take you to a panel on the Grammar Captive mainpage that will open in your language, as well. Try it at

Happy New Year! There are many more good things to come at Grammar Captive.

And, thank you, Jafar, for your timeliness!

RSS Feeds Restored

Although it is unclear how it came about, the URL used by the FeedEk application that handles Grammar Captive’s WordPress RSS feeds was pointing to the wrong web address. It is suspected that WordPress underwent a modification that rendered the old link obsolete. In any case, after some research the problem has been resolved, and you can once again observe Grammar Captive’s development as it happens.
