  1. What I usually do is have a "last_login" (date_time) in my users table. When the user logs in I just update this with NOW(). If you want to calculate how long your users have been logged into your site check this out: http://www.bytemycode.com/snippets/snippet/736/ I wrote that for a few of my sites and it works well. Hope that helps! -Chris
  2. Here is the best way to do this: products ======== id name cat_id ect... categories ======== id parentid name This is the easiest and most efficient way to work with categories.
  3. yeah you always have to think of "worst case" when it comes to naming things. for example... one of my clients is now in it's 2nd generation. The dad's name is Harry. They were thinking of getting an eBay account to sell some old things here and there but didn't want to use their own name on there. The now owner (son of Harry) suggested the name "Harrys Tools" to keep everything simple I started to use that as a username when i was going to create the account (without the space) making it "harrystools". I soon started laughing pretty hard because now it looks like "Harry Stools"...so I had to make a new name after that.
  4. yeah it does look like "beast tit" haha. It would be a great beastality site though
  5. good point. I have an AS in Web Technology and Netwoking and I think it's a problem when one of the teachers didn't even know what PHP was!!! (true story) So this degree was a total waste of time since I knew way more then all of the teachers that I was taking classes from.
  6. haha ...too funny! my day has been pretty boring so far.
  7. I've been in music for most of my life. I've been playing drums/percussion for something like 13+ years then a dabble enough in guitar, bass, and piano to get by. Neither of my parents are very musical...so I don't know where I got it from but thats cool with me. I'm in 1 serious band and a few side projects so I'm always pretty busy on top of everything else. I have a massive list of equipment too, but I don't wanna type that much now . I actually have a gig tonight which should be a lot of fun!
  8. Check out my MySQL class here it gives you the class and a few other examples.
  9. Self taugh. I have a few books that I use for reference sometimes but I'm mainly on this site and others looking for tutorials and other things of that nature.
  10. I have a test directory so that I can try out new things and keep them if they work out so that I can use them later. If I'm testing something in a site I usually use zzz_test.php so that it drops to the bottom of the files so later I can find it and delete it quickly.
  11. Don't forget that living in the Europe or the US is a LOT more expensive. I'm waiting for the government to tax the air that I breath... :-X cost of living is expensive in all over the world you expect your government to tax the air you breath well we're wait for our government to tax the SH*** that comes out in our as* haha yeah pretty much
  12. Yes, I agree...#2. Just think about what you would have to do to create a search function to say "I want every user with an age of 25-30". What would you have to do for each one? #2 would be a lot easier to work with, don't you think?
  13. i do love my music I'm listening to it constantly. Most of the time I'm just listening to the things I need to learn for the bands that I'm in. But when I'm not learning the tunes I like to listen to: Dream Theater, Metallica (older), Mudvayne, Pantera, Stone Sour, Disturbed, Godsmack, Hell Yeah, Breaking Benjamin, Iron Maiden, Poison, Motley Crue, Skid Row, Nckelback, 3 Days Grace, and a whole lot more. My whole digital music collection is about 65GB...not including a bunch of CD's I haven't gotten a chance to "archive" yet. I like more of the technical music that has a lot of cool tempos and time changes. It seems to keep everything a little more interesting instead of just the regular 4/4 time signature rock...
  14. I like the newer layout a lot better...good job
  15. here, check this out: http://saila.com/webdesign/shadow/
  16. Here ya go...this will help you out a lot: http://www.phpfreaks.com/forums/index.php/topic,131506.0.html
  17. you can do the same thing with just one table very easily. categories ======== id parentid category_name
  18. it's just short hand (short tags) for echoing a variable <?=$name?> is the same as <?php echo "$name" ?>
  19. From your "Create Account" Does this mean that you will delete my account even if it's active after 30 days? I don't think thats what you want to do...or intended to say.
  20. Yeah, I have a bunch of good ones IMO. Here is (some of) the list: AllLocal.info - I want to make a search/rating site for restaurants, clubs, venues, hot spots, and maybe have a "singles"/dating section. AllLocalBands.net, AnyLocalBands.com/.net, SyracuseBands.NET (which I use and it's good for here in Syracuse,NY), NationalBands.net, Nationwidebands.com/.net DailyRandomShit.com/.net/.info - I wanted to do something with funny/random pics, vids, jokes, ect. getmysurvey.com, greatparentinfo.com, learnallabout.info (in use), SUBMIT-SEO.COM - all sites that have potential for google adsense Getmypcfixednow.com, mywebgraphic.com, PCHOMEEXPERT.COM, PCHOMEEXPERTS.COM, SYRACUSEPCSERVICES.COM officiallysexy.com, UAREHOT.COM - idea for dating/pic rating site SCHOOLINFOZONE.COM - another wanna-be project YOURSTUNT.COM, YOURSTUNTS.COM, YOUSTUNT.COM - yet another wanna-be project (which I posted on here a while ago in the freelance board but haven't done anything with it since) ...so pretty much it comes down to I have a lot of domains with potential...and no time to do anything with them right now. PS. Sorry for the CAPS I got tired of re-typing domains so I just copied them out of my GoDaddy account. Also sorry if I posted something not allowed...feel free to edit. Only 2 of the domains listed are live.
  21. you should check out www.tagworld.com I think they have a good idea going. It's right in between MySpace and Facebook. The site and the profiles are a lot cleaner then myspace, but it gives you a lot more flexibility then facebook. They offer pre-made and approved templates for your profile. They also have a lot of cool ajax stuff...better then facebook in most instances. I would set up an account on there and poke around. Thats how I get ideas for my sites. Take the best features from each, combine, and improve on them.

    No, you have to make a system to input the data. So that would just be a form being written to a database. Then you can output that as RSS. If other sites have RSS you can read this information and put it into your database also.
