  1. I use to use UltraEdit (IDM Software) on Windows a long time ago. I switched over to MAC and tried several editors, ended up using Zend for a while but I really hate how bloated Zend is. I found UltraEdit has a Mac version and it's pretty awesome and cheap. Plus Free 30 day trial. http://www.ultraedit.com/
  2. By the way... UltraEdit just came out for Mac OSX... this was my favorite editor on Windows... switching over to Mac, I ended up using Zend Studio and don't care for it much, but UltraEdit's file / server browser kind of sucks on Mac so I'm sticking with Zend for now
  3. Don't forget that http://www.webhostfreaks.com (Shared Hosting) and http://www.serverpowered.com (Dedicated Servers / Virtual Private Servers / Load Balanced clusters) are owned by The Web Freaks who owns this site and maintains it!
  4. [quote author=Daniel0 link=topic=111027.msg449650#msg449650 date=1160458124] I believe that they are working on it as I think the entire main site is being rebuild or something like that. [/quote] You are always welcome to apply and become an author to write new tutorials. This site is based on user contributions. I simply do not have the time to write tutorials anymore and I only hope someone can pick up where we left off and start helping with putting fresh new content up.
  5. A Connection Reset message means something in the content you were trying to post triggered our Intrusion Prevention System. There's a whole topic on this in the @phpfreaks forums.
  6. It will be back up once we can convert it to SMF. Sorry for taking down the whole site, but IPB was vulnerable.
  7. For the past day or two, the forums have been offline. We can thank the splendid Invision Power Board team for their outstanding efforts in developing this POS forum that we're stuck with which has so many problems its not funny. I'm about tempted to get us a different forum software. If anyone has experience with something and you recommend it, let us know. We have to be able to port our existing IPB database to it though, so a converter script for IPB 2.1 has to be avaiable. Lets talk about it.

[!--quoteo(post=356167:date=Mar 18 2006, 09:56 AM:name=wildteen88)--][div class=\'quotetop\']QUOTE(wildteen88 @ Mar 18 2006, 09:56 AM) 356167[/snapback][/div][div class=\'quotemain\'][!--quotec--] I'm getting the same problem, however i dont get a notice like you say, but FF does freeze for at least a secound or two this is because of the add service that has been installed. The pages display quickly but then the adservice adds in all the various ad links so this is why the page freezes. Yes, we see it too and we've contacted the ad agency regarding this. It's a matter of this: either we fund the site, or it goes away I think we can live with a second long delay for a short period of time until they get the issues solved. Regards,
  9. We have signed a deal with Kontera to provide advertising on our websites. This is "inter-text" style meaning that certain words will be replaced with advertisements. Before you click the link look at what it is. Now, I know some of you want to help us out and think that clicking like a maniac will make us alot of money. It wont! In fact, "over clicking" or "fake clicking" will do us harm and potentially cause us to lose our deal with this ad firm. So, only click on a link if it actually interests you. Clicking 5 links in a minute will flag your IP address and we won't get anything for your click. So, please be responsible. I know there's quite a few interesting ads, I've found a couple myself. Like I said, if its something you are truley interested in, then click it, otherwise, don't try to do us any fabulous favors! Thanks for your support! Hopefully this will solve all of the issues with running sites like this. Regards,

Good luck, and I'll click on ads every time I visit! It shouldn't be any slower than usual, in fact I think the site is faster now. It's running very well from what I can tell.
  11. We've decided to downgrade the phpfreaks.com server for a couple of reasons. 1.) We're splitting it off of being on the same server as Linuxforum.com, ApacheFreaks.com, and MySQLFreaks.com 2.) Yahoo Slurp is litterlally killing our server. That is the most inefficient web spider I have ever seen. We have to drop temporarily in order to reduce the load on the server because it was killing even our Dual Xeon. 3.) We simply cannot justify at this time to keep running our sites on Dual Xeon processors with the very little support we receive from our communities. There's ads on the sites, we need you to click them and support our advertisers. This has been said numerous times, but doesn't seem to be working very well. We've been building products over at Server Powered that you as developers could appreciate. We've got the VPS, the Dedicated, the Shared with WebHostfreaks.com and etc. We've got the 24 x 7 support and everything you would need to host your sites. Instead, we get minimal interest from phpfreaks.com visitors / members. ServerPowered.com and WebHostFreaks.com are the funding sources for phpfreaks.com and our other sites. All that we ask is if you're a user of this site, why not consider moving your hosting to us and contribute back to this community so we can continue to help you? So, right now, phpfreaks.com is running on a [a href=\"http://www.serverpowered.com/vps.php\" target=\"_blank\"]Virtual Private Server[/a] along with Ajaxfreaks.com. We've already had to rollback the database once due to the Yahoo Slurp hammering the server and exhausting the memory. Where we will go from here, we're not sure. If we don't get support from our communities (yes, people like you reading this post) then we'll have to find alternatives than running these sites. top - 10:43:33 up 10:58, 0 users, load average: 1.51, 1.79, 2.43 Tasks: 72 total, 4 running, 68 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie Cpu(s): 48.7% us, 7.7% sy, 0.0% ni, 43.6% id, 0.0% wa, 0.0% hi, 0.0% si Mem: 1024484k total, 832160k used, 192324k free, 19180k buffers Swap: 1012084k total, 10964k used, 1001120k free, 185404k cached Regards,

It's not even something you can develop that much. It's just a method of sending and receiving information, how much more complicated can you make it? You can't. I and many others will disagree with that. It's not that it's a new technology or really even a new language, it's the ability to streamline applications, enhance server processing, and tie together many of our favorite languages to enhance not just our website, but our web applications. I've seen a few very popular applications already implementing it, and we plan to do the same with Hybodus. It's going to be interesting. Now, I don't think it's going to be as popular as XHTML, XML, or nothing like PHP, but it is catching on and it will be popular.

Would Linux be as popular if it didn't have a name? I don't think so 72dpi has given us the layout for Ajaxfreaks.com: [a href=\"http://ajaxfreaks.72dpi.net.au/\" target=\"_blank\"]http://ajaxfreaks.72dpi.net.au/[/a] It is green yes, and I think some may complain about that, but I and about 5 other people I have given the link to, think it's appropriate. We'll begin working on the site early december. Regards,

Because someone gave it a name, a way to symbolize it and that became a buzzword and everyone is hyping about it. Would Linux be as popular if it didn't have a name? I don't think so
  15. Yeah, Ryan - 72dpi is an old friend of The Web Freaks. He's done some design jobs for us before and he's a cool guy.
