Compare two dates using php string comparison

Here is a small script in PHP to compare 2 dates
This comparison will work if dates are in "YYYY-mm-dd" format

Try this Your self

$date1="2012-05-20"; $date2="2012-05-20";

if( $date1 > $date2 ) echo "$date1 greater than $date2";
elseif( $date1 == $date2 ) echo "$date1 equal to $date2";
else echo "$date1 lower than $date2";

Just changed this to a function

function strDateCompare($date1,$date2){
if( $date1 > $date2 )
return "$date1 greater than $date2";
elseif( $date1 == $date2 )
return "$date1 equal to $date2";
return "$d1 lower than $d2";

call the function as given below:

echo( strDateCompare("2012-05-20","2012-05-20") );
//this will return "2012-05-20 equal to 2012-05-20"
echo( strDateCompare("2011-03-15","2012-05-20") );
//this will return "2011-03-15 less than 2012-05-20"

echo( strDateCompare("2012-05-20","2011-03-15") );
//this will return "2012-05-20 greater than 2011-03-15"

Hope this helps someone
thanks :)

How to turn off BSNL Buzz services - Steps to deactivate BSNL Buzz messages

BSNL Buzz is a service from BSNL for mobile customers, in which when your phone is in idle mode, teasers or small buzz messages related to topics like entertainment, lifestyle, sports, business, fun, polls, daily news updates are delivered to your mobile. When you activate a BSNL SIM card, through which BSNL BUZZ is available, you automatically accept the terms and conditions for teaser delivery.

Recently, I bought a new BSNL SIM card. After the activation, when ever I unlock the phone, I was getting lots of buzz message one after another. I have to click on cancel / back button multiple time to view the home screen. Some times when some call arrives, it was difficult to attend calls due to this teaser popups. So I decided to deactivate the BSNL buzz. Here are the steps to Deactivate or Turn Off BSNL Buzz.
