Yeah, happy birthday, Neal, I hope you have/had a great birthday. I'd sing "Happy Birthday" to you, but then I'd have to pay WMG (the destroyers of YouTube) $10,000 for royalties. If your birthday has passed already, did you do anything special?
WPR - Calling all pets, looks like you could try this program. I heard a promo today for it and immediately thought about your request for a "dog training class", usually they have a lot of call-ins about raising dogs and such.
I am now... And I had to warp the space-time continuum to do so (since I posted my journal entry today (the 15th). Every Pi Day for the last few years I anticipate it and remember it for the few days before the big day... and then when the clock strikes 1:59, I have completely forgotten that it's Pi Day. Then later in the day I remember and swear to myself, "I'll remember FOR SURE next year!" Until I forget again when it matters the next time.
I'm not quite sure why, but when I tried to add the info below as an Open Link, the response page errored out on me on line 44. It doesn't seem to be because of the use of quotes... perhaps the text is too long for the DB field?
Title:List of websites about "here"
Description:Since everybody creates links to other pages and use the word "here" for the link instead of something more useful, like the description or name of what the link is pointing to, it's neat to see what everyone links to the most using the word "here", as in "click here to download".
Caught red handed, I guess. Just "subtly" pointing out that the back-end processing could handle empty and invalid values a little better. I was just curious about what would happen if I didn't select any options and then voted.
It's important to always think of "how can I break this?" when working on something. Difficult to remember to think about it, and you don't always find every way it can be broken, but it does lead to "sturdier" code that doesn't fall apart if used in a way you didn't think of or plan for. Like the email form on the lakeland website - I had briefly considered people using it for spamming when I was working on it a while back, but thought it wasn't too likely, and didn't think it was worth the effort to code properly. Later, I forgot to ever go back to code it the "right" way - and now I had to go and fix it since it was in fact being used to spam people, unfortunately. My coding process is basically, code 5-20 lines, test, fix anything that is completely broken, test again, then try to break it - throw every kind of value and combination of values at it. If the code is recording the number of guests, for example, I would try entering 0, -5, 4, and 5000, just to see what happens, and verify that it works as it should, and not have it allow you to sign up for -5 guests and by faulty math (number of guests * price per guest = total owed) end up paying the registrant the amount. Well, I think I'll end my long-winded reply here.... or maybe here.
Yeah, the header does look kind of funny. Not too bad, but just kind of "different", mainly that colored bar just before you get the white background and the text links appear off-center vertically too because of that bar. Ooh, and now have their new 99.99% uptime guarantee banner - woo!
About your newest link - I found it somewhat surprising how many people on there gave such harshly negative reviews of 1&1. Admittedly, they aren't perfect, but for the price, they seem to do a good job, at least in my experience. It is weird too how the reviews seemed to be extremely positive, or extremely negative with few being "right in the middle".
Yeah, the page half loaded for me, didn't bother going any further, yet... I might try at school Thursday when I bring lappy along. It was posted on hot-deals.org, and probably a bunch of other sites. Haven't seen it on /. yet though.
Yeah, I've seen those before. I believe some older versions of IE also had a friendlier URL. Also, there's some registry keys you can create/modify to create your own special URLs like that, but I'm not sure what they are. more info.
I know we talked today about your site, but still... that sucks. So far, I had about two non-consecutive days of downtime within a week of each other a couple years ago. Well, that's all that I've ever noticed anyways.
I "upgraded" my package from the "Professional package preview" to the "Beginner hosting package". I still got to keep the old sub-domain at onlinehome.us as part of my package, plus I got 1 free domain name all for myself.
Also sort the processses by their CPU %, anything using more than 50% of your CPU for extended periods of time are probably part of the problem. (to sort them, click on the letters CPU at the top of the list of processes)
Yes, all in the sake of backwards compability to DOS days where there were shortcut "files" which pointed to physical devices (i.e. a printer) so that a program could "save" something but have the output actually run to the printer. A bit f-ed up, possibly, to still reserve those filenames after all these years.
hey, try creating a file or folder with the filename, or extension being any of the following:
CON, PRN, AUX, CLOCK$, NUL, COM0, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, LPT0, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, LPT9
Yeah, that one. I noticed the sorting feature as/after I posted the parent post. I think that a threaded message board would be a nice improvement, but of course it's your site and you can do what you want. I have a commenting system set up for news postings, but not for blog posts, never bothered to do that for some reason. I guess the message board thing on the bottom-center of the home page will do for now.
Hey, your page on PageBuildr sucks!!!!!!!111!!!one!!!1 Just kidding, but have a look at mine: here. I took your page, tweaked the CSS a bunch, and enlarged the IFrame (works in FF, haven't tried IE). Put whatever URL in there you want, and voila! Can we upload HTML files with the file browser?? think not, otherwise it'd be a really great hack. I think you might actually be able to upload an HTML page with the extension changed to jpg or whatever, and then have the IFrame source and content-type or mime-type set to text/html. Maybe I'll try that later. Well, see ya.
Hey, the poll booth pages (two of them) show "Poll #" for the three polls, but the numbers should go in the opposite order, i.e. the oldest poll should be #1 instead of #3, and the newest poll should be #3 instead of #1, etc.
you mean: "LF.net Netzwerksysteme GmbH"? Anyways, yeah, me and Nic are trying to see how fast we can fill the inbox for that email account that he created. (and you'll never guess what the password is either.)
Maybe you could have a few buttons for the sorting order on the message board, i.e. show only the main threads, sort by date (oldest first/newest first), most replies, least replies, and anything else you can think of. Think that's a good idea?
Seriously though, I have a semi-login system on my website, some things require you to be logged in, while others it is optional. Also, you could set the cookie to last like a month or two so that it would actually be more convenient to log in once, then post whenever (on the same computer) and automagically have your name be attached to the comment. Also, it would help prevent someone from voting a bazillion times on the same poll.
I also noticed that yours are filled while the ones on weasel.net aren't or maybe it's the other way around, so, anyways, did you change the code slightly to do this, or is it some odd glitch, or am I on drugs again?
Directions? To where? The airport? But yeah, each brand/type of computer chair seems to have a random way of locking in the upright position, some even have a "pressure knob" to adjust how easily it'll tilt back... perhaps everyone should reply with how their chair operates... Mine: "stick shift" - pull out to tilt, push in to lock, twist to move up/down. And another, separate knob to adjust ease of tilt.
Nice stars on your homepage's title... too bad they don't seem to show up correctly on win98 (my be just the font I'm using). They do show up correctly on the tab in firefox, just not in the browser window's titlebar, nor in the taskbar. Nice to see you "stealing" top-secret star-creating character codes from weasel.net
I already have it downloaded, just haven't gotten around to installing it yet. Also, you should still try to see if you can fix it for other people who can't/don't want to upgrade, and for the few random Opera users out there.
