  1. You most likely won't be able to do this with a fairly standard card.
  2. If the file is read-only, did you try changing the properties of the file to make it not read-only?? Vista doesn't have a bug with editing files... sounds like a user problem.
  3. Do us all a favor and don't use all CAPS in your thread titles.
  4. .... if it had a better driver/hardware than a crappy one... yeah.
  5. Could be several things: 1) Newer hardware 2) Better driver 3) compatibility with the router 4) general computer performance (believe it or not... if your computer is junked up and running a bunch of stuff, it can slow down load times and storage of downloaded files) There is no magic booster card that would do this.
  6. It depends. I know a lot of people that break queries out like this: $query = "SELECT a,b,c FROM tablexyz WHERE x = y ORDER BY w ASC"; I put all that on one line unless the query is extremely complicated. But good coding standards dictate that you typically break logical portions of code into separate lines for readability.
  7. I have to agree with Ginger here. The responsibility to deal with a client is purely on the part of the developer. Things to think about when dealing with clients: 1) Always demand a percentage up front (I always get 40%). 2) Never deliver until full payment is made (requires a testing ground on your server). 3) If you do deliver before final payment, make sure you have a way to shut down what you've delivered if final payment isn't made. The freelance board is at your own risk. Sorry, but that's the only fair way I know to spin it.
  8. There are 2 design philosophies: 1) Dynamic design that will flow and readjust to the user's browser. (Typically not a good idea on most sites when you have a very large resolution). 2) Fall to the weakest link. That used to be 800x600, but most of my designs cater to the 1024x768 crowd now. It's becoming more the norm. http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_display.asp
  9. You can use Windows Task Scheduler. Just call the PHP Executable file as your command with your script as an argument. Your script can do whatever you want, including calling other files.
  10. I just wanted to follow up on this thread. I just started using this to generate some reports for a client and it is fantastic. I agree that the styling interface could be simplified, but I'll take what I can get. Very powerful and easy to setup and use.
  11. I know this is locked, but I felt it appropriate to add this: [attachment deleted by admin]
  12. Agreed with CV. You can always post in misc... someone will probably pick it up and help you there.
  13. Thanks. I'll report it to the mod creator.
  14. That's what delicious and all those other social bookmarking sites are for. Or you could just subscribe to those threads.
  15. My guess is that it might be leftovers from the IPB days. I run several other boards and the files are all stored with a key as part of their name.
  16. I know for a fact that the attachments are stored with a pre-pended key, so I'm not even sure how you got that first error unless you hit submit twice without waiting for the page to respond. I'm not sure how you got the second error either. Again, I don't think either of these are SMF errors, or I more than likely would have seen them.
  17. Keep it civil or this all goes away, okedoke?
  18. http://www.phpfreaks.com/forums/index.php/board,102.0.html Ask and ye shall receive. Added under the "other" category.
  19. If you need a 5 day forecast, I used: http://weather.msn.com/ They have international feeds and the images are very clean and modern looking compared to some of the other feeds I used. I just parsed out the XML into a styled table and my users simply entered their zipcode into a custom profile field in SMF. Granted, my user base was only in the US, but it should handle codes from around the world.

    That's laughable. I ignore anything below IE6. I have FF3 installed as well as Opera 9.5. I mainly develop in FF now... used to be Opera. Working in FF != always working in Opera. You're more likely to have it working in FF if you develop in Opera. I ignore Netscape unless a client specifically uses it to test (and they have). Safari has only a slightly better market share than Opera so I don't even install it.
  21. I was written by JayBacherto... one of our admins, and an SMF mod writer (among other things). He can post it if he wants, but we're not going to do it for him.

  23. Yeah... I noticed they hand a bunch of code sitting on the site after I visited it. Now I just think you're a cheater
