  1. I can recieve PMs, but I can't reply to them. Umm... I know the PM system was closed and such, but why can someone send me a PM but I can't reply. Its kind of strange.
  2. Pixies are "michevious imps". And it sounds cool when spoken. What else?
  3. Are you getting an error or is it just doing nothing?
  4. I'd just ask someone with Charlotte to send it to you. My computer didn't come with Century Gothic, and someone just emailed me the TFF. That might be illegal though--but it's just a font.
  5. [quote author=effigy link=topic=105131.msg420437#msg420437 date=1156303083] [quote] That guy has a lot of interesting beliefs about the human mind. It's absolutely fascinating. [/quote] [/quote] Yeah, I've been learning a lot about it in my search for the AA. [quote author=effigy link=topic=105131.msg420437#msg420437 date=1156303083] Agreed. Especially so, considering that two of his biggest interests were dreams and symbolism. [quote] I wouldn't expect it, but have any of you heard of the Argus Apocraphex? [/quote] I have not. Care to tell more? Another author that has caught my attention lately, although I've yet to read any of his books, is [url=http://www.erichoffer.net/]Eric Hoffer[/url]. [/quote] Well, this band I listen to has been constantly encouraging us (the fans, basically) to find it. We've been doing loads of research and find it mentioned in loads of places. But we still don't know much about it. Right now we're looking into Egypt for answers, but the name is greek. Arugs = a monster with 100 eyes, which was a steadfast guard who kept a few eyes open during sleep. Apocraphex comes from the word "apocrypha" which means a hidden text. http://thirtysecondstomars.emiforums.com/index.php?showtopic=295195&hl= You can read our search there. The last 10 pages have been particularly fruitful. :) If you take the time to read the whole topic--it feels like your brain will explode. but it's all part of the journey, right? I'll check that guy out! It sounds interesting.
  6. I've ready several books by Terry Goodkind. He's an amazing writer, even if his stories get a bit dicey. [quote author=effigy link=topic=105131.msg419818#msg419818 date=1156221926] I typically enjoy anything by the following: [list] [*]Mahatma Gandhi [*][b]Carl Jung[/b] [*]Thich Nhat Han [*]Bill Watterson [*]Alan Watts [*]Ralph Waldo Emerson [/list] [/quote] That guy has a lot of interesting beliefs about the human mind. It's absolutely fascinating. I wouldn't expect it, but have any of you heard of the Argus Apocraphex? Supposedly it's a really rare manuscript, but I'm still doing a lot of research on it to decide what I think about it.
  7. Looks good, but I hate the black background. Try something lighter. :)
  8. Whoa, I was just needing something like this too! :)
  9. Read any great books lately? I'm not looking for suggestions as far as PHP or other computer-related topics. Just good books. :) I've been really interested in philosophy and greek literature lately, but any recommendations would be great. I'm on a quest for knowledge. As for my recommendations, I've recently read: "The Art of War" - Sun Tsu "The Alchemist" - Paul Coelho And I'm currently plugging through "War and Peace" by Leo Tolstoy and -trying- to order this book about Occam's Razor. Amazon is being a pain, though. I also recommend Harry Potter books for anyone looking for an easy, yet imageinately thought provoking read.
  10. That is funny! :D You should tell them.
  11. A Book. Called "PHP and MySQL for Dynamic Sites" by Larry Ullman. They recommend against the book, but I learned everything from it. I always recommend to people who want to learn: buy a book! I love books.
  12. The thing is, chances are you'll know just as much as those people with degrees (and possibly more).
  13. First things first: buy a book. Seriously, just reading through it and trying out the examples will help you SO much. We've got a thread here with book recommendations: http://www.phpfreaks.com/forums/index.php/topic,58799.0.html Loads of PHP books have User Login walkthroughs in them, and they explain it so well how you create one. If you actually read the book, you'll understand it and be able to add on your own features and stuff. Thats my advice. Read a book. :D
  14. Of course, dear. You'll have to be more specific about what kind of menu you want to make if you want us to help you.
  15. So, I can embed my flash SWF files and it works in Firefox, but it's invalid code. It doesn't show ANYTHING in IE. Is there a way to embed a flash movie with valid code that works in both Internet Explorer and Firefox?
  16. Yeah, I have to change some stuff for IE. I hate Internet Explorer. I just do it in PHP: if (strpos(strtoupper($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']), 'MSIE') {   // IE stuff } else {   // FF stuff }
  17. I hate frontpage. I use Dreamweaver 8 because of the syntax coding. I can't stand the designer view.
  18. I agree with nethnet. I think pretty much anybody can learn just as much, if not more by themselves than going to schooling for it. I've taught myself HTML, CSS, PHP + mySQL, and I'm currently learning Actionscript and 3d Modeling. Going to college for that kind of thing would cost so much money, but I've spent less than $200 on books that teach me just as much.
  19. I've been having all sorts of trouble with this function. It's giving me huge values, negative numbers, etc. It's for converting a money value into it's respective parts. I am making one with galleons, sickles and knuts. This is how they convert: 1 Galleon = 493 Knuts 1 Galleon = 17 Sickles 1 Sickle = 29 Knuts I'm converting from knuts into all the other units. So if I had 235354351521 knuts, I want it to tell me know many galleons, sickles, and knuts that makes. [code] <?php function money($cash) {   // First, find out galleons   $galleons = round(($cash / 493), 0);   $remain = $cash - ($galleons * 493);   $sickles = round(($remain / 29), 0);   $knuts = round(($remain - ($sickles * 29)), 0);   if ($galleons !== 1) {     $galleons = $galleons .' Galleons';   }   else {     $galleons = $galleons .' Galleon';   }   if ($sickles !== 1) {     $sickles = $sickles .' Sickles';   }   else {     $sickles = $sickles .' Sickle';   }   if ($knuts !== 1) {     $knuts = $knuts .' Knuts';   }   else {     $knuts = $knuts .' Knut';   }   $money = $galleons .', '. $sickles .', '. $knuts;   return $money; } ?>[/code]
  20. I just do this: <LINK REL="StyleSheet" HREF="style.css" TYPE="text/css" MEDIA="screen">
  21. I have a bunch of problems. Any help is GREATLY appreciated. Firstly, the background won't repeat. You'll see in the pictures, the background doesn't repeat where the text goes. I have it set it repeat it: <td background="whatever.png"> But it's not showing up.... 1. I can't get the sidebar to repeat only instead of creating gaps. On the left is what it looks like okay, on the right is what it looks like bad. [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v72/vanillachick/problem_sidebarokay.gif[/img] [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v72/vanillachick/problem_sidebarbad.gif[/img] This is my basic code I'm using: header.php [code] <table id="Table_01" width="750" height="801" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" align="center"> <tr> <td colspan="10"> <img src="layout/images/newlayout_01.png" width="750" height="151" alt=""></td> </tr> <tr> <td colspan="4"> <img src="layout/images/newlayout_02.png" width="429" height="68" alt=""></td> <td colspan="6"> <img src="layout/images/newlayout_03.png" width="321" height="68" alt=""></td> </tr> <tr> <td colspan="5" rowspan="3" background="layout/background.png" width="476" valign="top"> <!-- Here begins the sub-table --> <table border="0" cellpadding="0px" cellspacing="0px" align="right" width="95%" valign="top"> <tr><td> <div align="justify"> [/code] footer.php [code] </div> </td></tr></table> <!-- Here Ends the Sub Table --> <!-- <img src="images/newlayout_04.png" width="476" height="481" alt=""> --></td> <td colspan="3"> <img src="layout/images/newlayout_05.png" width="190" height="432" alt=""></td> <td colspan="2"> <img src="layout/images/newlayout_06.png" width="84" height="432" alt=""></td> </tr> <tr> <td colspan="5"> <img src="layout/images/newlayout_07.png" width="274" height="49" alt=""></td> </tr> <tr> <td colspan="5" background="layout/sidebg.png" height="100%" valign="top"> side text<p> this is cool</p> okay amazing<p> but the thing is, i still have to type to get them to be even! <p> why is this?</td> </tr> <tr> <td colspan="10"> <img src="layout/images/newlayout_08.png" width="750" height="16" alt=""></td> </tr> <tr> <td> <img src="layout/images/newlayout_09.png" width="19" height="84" alt=""></td> <td> <img src="layout/images/newlayout_10.png" width="260" height="84" alt=""></td> <td> <img src="layout/images/newlayout_11.png" width="89" height="84" alt=""></td> <td colspan="3"> <img src="layout/images/newlayout_12.png" width="174" height="84" alt=""></td> <td> <img src="layout/images/newlayout_13.png" width="105" height="84" alt=""></td> <td colspan="2"> <img src="layout/images/newlayout_14.png" width="90" height="84" alt=""></td> <td> <img src="layout/images/newlayout_15.png" width="13" height="84" alt=""></td> </tr> <tr> <td> <img src="layout/images/spacer.gif" width="19" height="1" alt=""></td> <td> <img src="layout/images/spacer.gif" width="260" height="1" alt=""></td> <td> <img src="layout/images/spacer.gif" width="89" height="1" alt=""></td> <td> <img src="layout/images/spacer.gif" width="61" height="1" alt=""></td> <td> <img src="layout/images/spacer.gif" width="47" height="1" alt=""></td> <td> <img src="layout/images/spacer.gif" width="66" height="1" alt=""></td> <td> <img src="layout/images/spacer.gif" width="105" height="1" alt=""></td> <td> <img src="layout/images/spacer.gif" width="19" height="1" alt=""></td> <td> <img src="layout/images/spacer.gif" width="71" height="1" alt=""></td> <td> <img src="layout/images/spacer.gif" width="13" height="1" alt=""></td> </tr> </table> </body> </html> [/code] 3. There is a color different in IE vs. Firefox. The pictures above show that the colors in the image and the background match, but in Internet Explorer the colors dont match: [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v72/vanillachick/problem_colordifference.gif[/img] 4. Colors in Photoshop look different than outside of photoshop. Example: [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v72/vanillachick/problem_inphotoshop.gif[/img] [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v72/vanillachick/problem_inbrowser.gif[/img]
  22. The top graphic is kind of blurry, especially around the text. Maybe try saving in a higher quality JPG setting?
  23. You [b]NEED[/b] more cellpadding on the sides. It's to cramped. I personally think you should widen the layout.
  24. pixy


    1. The main text needs to go up at the same height as the menu. 2. You should use some rollovers on your top menu. 3. Incorporate a bright color like blue or green throughout the page so it's not so monochromatic.
  25. You can look at what your visitors are like in your Cpanel. It says what web browser their using, how long they stay on your site, number of visits, number of repeat visits, etc. How are you planning to collect data from the viewer?
