  1. You're welcome Jaci. Get back with the blog software you are using and the folks here can definitely help. I'm not used so much to blogging software but there are plenty here who are. Best wishes.
  2. Does anyone have a good link to the differences between 4 and 5 that may cause a problem for us? I'm hoping that there is something simple and not a bunch of mumbo jumbo stuff - a bullet list or summary would be great. After all the delays in upgrading to 5 for compatibility reasons I would think there's more than a couple of things changed.
  3. It was on YouTube. I doubt Gizmodo found it here before the YouTube version hit their radar.
  4. Thanks for the explanation, Madman. BTW, it's not my server, just something I noticed... the 100% seemed a bit high based on forum discussions.
  5. I'm just wondering how good the uptime statistics are and if they are correct. I looked at the stats for 9-10 and they say: From: Sep 10 2007 12:00 AM (US/Eastern) To: Sep 11 2007 12:00 AM (US/Eastern) ... 43. server101.totalchoicehosting.com (server101.totalchoicehosting.com) HTTP Test (Port 80) - uptime: 99.142% - downtime: 10min - outage: 1 However in this thread it seems that server101 was reported down at 3:14 AM and at 6:25 AM Vivek said they were still working on that server. Am I reading it wrong?
  6. There has been some talk lately about FrontPage and the end of Front Page Extensions. For those who are of medium skill level who want to try it, there is an interesting article I found about how to take what FP creates and turning it into HTML and CSS. It's not terribly difficult and has very good step by step instructions if you are game.
  7. If this is a silly question just say so and move on. Wouldn't it be easier on the servers to just accept the emails than to send a call-back, check the reply, validate or invalidate the email, (bounce a message?) ? It seems that you are placing a great strain on the servers to eliminate a few emails. Does this method work if they spam from a legit email address? I suspect that's why they are using all our email domains as the froms and why we get the "You spammed me" messages... but again, I could be totally off on this. As for how to solve this, I'd recommend using a hosted email serv
  8. Lots of people say what Peter did in the last post - "Frontpage was a dog and still is with all it's belated coding" - (I assume he means bloated coding). Anyway, I recreated the front page of a site I have using FrontPage 2003 at www.jimscomputing.com/test.htm and I fail to see where all the gosh-aweful bloating is everyone gripes about. Yes, there is a <p> </p> in there and some "align=left"'s which are the default and could be omitted... but it's really not all that bad. By the way, I did no code-tweaking - everything was done in the wysiwyg editor. If someone doesn'
  9. You would need some kind of database on the server, so if "alone" means just FrontPage and no database then no it can't. You also will not find, IMO, a FP template that will do what you want. PriceLine spent probably tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars to create the programming they have. I also suspect you'll not find it for free. FrontPage creates webpages, and if you know what you're doing it will do a good job of it. It does not create entire database-driven, feature rich, search and find, price comparison programming -- unless you are an expert at it. In that case you could
  10. Here's a topic you may find of interest. Also there's a whole set of promotion tutorials you can read through.
  11. Hey Dan, I've always said that the degree gets your foot in the door, your experience and personality do the rest. Personally, I don't think certs hold much weight in most cases, but specifics may vary. Also, I'm not sure about now, but when I was in college (mid 80's) the commonly accepted fact was that employers were looking for managers that can program rather than programmers that can manage. The thinking I was given was that when you burn out on programming you can be moved into management which is more valuable to an employer... code monkeys are a dime a dozen. (no offense to
  12. Hi. I just wanted to throw out my $0.02 on this. Yes, a lot of answers say "this assumes you know how to do __" but have you ever seen someone ask how to do it and not get answers back if it's necessary? Also, when I bought my car they assumed I knew how to drive and didn't tell me that the brake was to stop. Not to slight the ones who do this, but how many questions are here that say basically "I got my host thing - now what - how do I make a web page?" I'm surprised they take the time to answer half they do but they are just helpful like that. Contrary to popular belief, runnin
  13. It's not a flaw in my statement. My statement that you can get around any quirks with a little effort is not based on whether folks will do that. FrontPage has a reputation of being for the "newbies who don't know or care about learning the quiks", which I find prejudiced (from pre-judge) and unfair. My neighbors thought I had no money because I didn't deck out under my stilt-house and even said something to the effect, but when the hurricanes come he is asking me to park under my house because he can't get into his. Just because someone uses FP doesn't mean they are a noob and can't/ha
  14. Jayson, (and others) FP has changed about as much as your computer has over the years. It used to be the worst piece of junk in the world for putting garbage in your pages... not so much today. There is still a little bloat but it's a respectable product that, like any, if you take the time to learn its quirks you can get around them with little effort. You can tell FP to upload via FTP, which is what I do, and it works just fine for what I do - and I do make money at this so it's not like my sites are trivial. Truly, to each his own.
  15. Did you also remove and reinstall Firefox itself? It's a stumper for sure.
