  1. Samantha I don’t know if this makes a different or not, probably not in your case. My old PC running Windows 98 SE has Outlook 98 running, which I used for the longest time to keep a Calendar for my appointments. When I purchased the new PC that contained Windows ME and Office XP along with Outlook 2002, I quickly uninstalled Outlook 2002, it wasn’t running the same way as my old Outlook was and installed Outlook 98, I don’t use mail connections in Outlook 98, just the Calendar set ups. I did use Outlook Express 5 to receive and send mail as a back up method. When I installed Internet Explorer 6, Outlook Express 6 came with internet Explorer 6 and I continue to use OLE 6 as a back up mail method. I hope you work your problem out. Richard
  2. Bill I always wanted to play around with Streaming Video .wmv files. I put together a quickie video together using one of Windows sample .wmv files and using an .asx file so Windows media player would open. There was not any problem with what I did, there was a problem when I substituted the Root 66 URL in the .asx file. My test site is at, http://rjskon.com/streaming_video/. I eliminated a lot of the .asx file that you posted. Here is what I used, <ASX version = "3.0"> <Entry> <Ref href = "http://www.rjskon.com/streaming_video/Windows Movie Maker Sample File.wmv" /> <Banner href="http://www.rjskon.com/streaming_video/Richard's_Video.jpg"> <Abstract>Test Video By Richard</Abstract> </Banner> </Entry> </ASX> Richard
  3. Jim, Thomas A few weeks ago I had to renew my hard drive which had been toasted. The replacement of the new 120 Gig Hard Drive went good, the only problem was that I had gotten a lot of Adware from somewhere, some of the Adware was even showing up on my Desktop as program icons, one being “business.exe”. Off to CompUSA I go and pick up myself a program called “Spy Sweeper” $29.95 and well worth it, The first run of Spy Sweeper picked up 135 Adware programs and cookies, the program places the Adware and cookies in Quarantine and either the Adware or Cookies can be deleted or kept if they are needed. The program works like Norton Anti Virus definitions, you can update the Adware Definitions with Spy Sweeper. I run Spy Sweeper every couple of days it takes about 24 minutes to go through the hard drive, Spy Sweeper is continually finding the same Adware, I’ll have to do a test and see where the Adware is coming from, they have to come from a site that I frequent a lot. I never had this problem with Adware when my old Hard Drive was running fine. Richard
  4. Nat Have you set up Windows Media Player, Tools Options, Format, check the video file box, that will tell the media player to play .avi files. There is also a set up in real player. Richard
  5. Eric Here is something interesting evidentially the is no version 5. On page, http://www.macromedia.com/support/dreamwea...s.html#updaters For trail users of dreamweaver about 1/2 the way down the page, "Trial users (English only): If you have a trial version of Dreamweaver MX 2004 You can download the updater and extend your trial by 30 days. All you need to do is:: I don't know if that upgrader would help you any. Rihard
  6. Eric Wasn't the problem just with version 3 and version 4 and isn't there now a version 5. Richard
  7. Eric Yes, I saw that page when I went to their site. I registered to download a copy of dreamwaver and to be placed on their mailing list, that's when I saw system requirementsand that page URL I placed in an earlier post. While I was sending you that previous post I tried that URL and it sent me to their 404 page, the browser window was still open that contained that page, so I took a snap shot of it and published it, it's here, http://rjskon.com/Dreamer/, the bottom of th page is cut off a little. Richard
  8. Toadly I used your form and substituted one of my Cut and Paste Form actions for yours. Try your form, it will send you a thank you email and if you don't enter your email address it will send you to an error page, give it a try. it's at, http://rjskon.com/toadly_form/, some of the fields on your form may need cleaning up. Richard
  9. Toadly Perhaps I can help you a little, I have used MS Publisher in the past to generate forms and web sites, if you go to http://www.rjskon.com/cut_paste/, the two largest forms there were created using MS Pub. All those forms that are shown on that page use a remote Cgi-Bin that contains the FormMail Script that make the forms work, there is no need for perl, cgi or php script. I use http://cutandpastescripts.com/ to do that, There is not any problem setting up any FormMail perl script, it's all done for you. You can set up a Error Page and a Success Page plus the script will mail a thank you Email to the sender of the form, there is not any recipients email address shown in the code. All you have to do is register at Cut and paste Scripts, it's two easy page to fill in on how you want your form to work an than they will post a couple of lines of code that you copy and paste where you have the Form Action an example<form action="http://www.cutandpastescripts.com/cgi-bin/formprocessing/forms.pl" method="post"> you will also paste in your user ID. If you need any help, just let me know and I'll be glad to help you. Richard
  10. Eric It looks as if there is a patch to correct the problem of Dreamweaver 4 not running with Windows ME it's at, http://www.macromedia.com/support/dreamwea...preview_me.htm., from what I see the problem was related to hang-ups when Previewing. When you said that ME and Dreamweaver were not compatable, I was supprised, because I was thinking of downloading a trail version of Dreamweaver myself to see what it's all about, I run Windows ME also. Richard
  11. Jim The best part about using an WYSIWYG Editor is that there isn't much time wasted writing code and you can get a web page up and published in just a few minutes, instead of spending a lot of time writing code. My sites do extremely well with the Google, it takes about two weeks for them to get listed in Google. Eric You may want to check into the academic version of Dreamweaver, if you qualify, you may be eligible to purchase it, it would probably be cheaper than Net fusion and you will have something decent. Richard
  12. Eric I also use a program called ViaPage it's a WYSIWUG html Editor, to create forms and do some HTML that I use in CuteSITE Builder, you can enter html code in CuteSITE builder either through the page or in a "Insert HTML" container. For the Flash menus and Flash animations I use Swish2. For the css stylesheets , I use TopStyle The Help Page at TCH, http://www.totalchoicehosting.com/help/, was created using CuteSITE Builder, by one of the gurus here TCH KW KW, also has a CuteSITE Help site that he has created using CuteSite Builder, it's at, http://csbsupport.com, there are all sorts of tidbits there. There is also another CUteSITE Builder Help site at, http://samisite.com, with more goodies. And if you should need additional Design Templates, I have some Freebies at, http://rjskon.com/templates. Richard
  13. Eric If you're looking for a WYSIWYG Editor, you may want to try the 30 day free demo that CuteSITE Builder offers at, http://www.globalscape.com/cutesitebuilder/ Don't let the name CuteSite be miss leading, it should have been named "EasySite Builder", this software is created by the same folks that have Cute HTML and Cute FTP, plus many other software programs. TCH also has a Help Forum for CuteSite Builder users, from what I see many folks that visit this Forum are users of CuteSite Builder, about a year ago TCH was promoting CuteSite Builder and was to sell the software at a discounted price, I don't know what happened. I Have used Trellix Web in the past which is now renamed CuteSITE Builder. Here is a sample of what it can do, http://meowwebdesigns.com/graphics. I figured I might as well jump on the bandwagon and toss my hat in the ring and sell something like everyone else that uses a HTML Editor. BTW, CuteSITE builder has a FormMail wizard which uses GlobalScape's Cgi-Bin and the form is very easy to set up. Richard PS, if you are looking to save money, you can use Microsoft Publisher, that usually comes packaged with MS office, or you could use MS Word to publish a site, I have used both in the past.
  14. When I put something together, I usually run it through Netscape 4.7 and if it works there, it will run in any browser. I don't know how many folks still use Netscape 4.7, but they say it's very little. Your home page, http://www.totalchoicehosting.com/ is a complete disaster when viewed in Netscape 4.7 When viewed in Netscape 6.2, the Flash banner recycles and the menu tabs don't cascade upward. I get the same results in Firebird 0.7 It seems to run good in Netscape 7.1 Richard
  15. Kaula Not saying that this is your problem, but I had a similar experience With Windows ME and IE 6 a few weeks ago. I purchased Turbo Tax and received Norton Professional with a super rebate package, I loaded Norton in and started to have a problem with IE 6 hanging up. I uninstalled Norton Professional and exchanged it for just plain Norton AntiVirus, which didn't have the Norton Firewall and other stuff, everything is now back to normal and running fine. Richard
  16. vendlus This font seems to be a close match. When brought up in Paint Shop Pro, an outline can be applied to the font and colored. I don't know where this font came from, it's just listed with the rest of my fonts. Richard
  17. Robert It's all well and good, if you have some type of control panel to access your Domain Name and make any changes or update the information. When I first signed with register.com, I did have the luxury of a control panel, but than after about two years when my Domain Name was changed over to register.com's partner, that ended the control panel. Unfortunately I was paying register.com $35.00 per year for their services. Securesever.com is excellent, as a matter of fact when I was getting no-where unlocking my Domain Name, they offered to return my transfer moneys. Anyone read the small print at Securesever.com, evidently they are backed by "Wild West Domains" Richard
  18. Thomas Here is a similar problem that I had back in September of 2003. I was trying to move the Domain Name of RJSkon.com from register.com (where I originally purchased the Domain Name) to TCH securesever.com. Securesever.com said that they were unable to move my Domain Name from register.com to securesever.com, because my Domain Name was locked and that I would have to unlock it for them to actually make the change. After many E-mails to register.com, I come to find out that they had moved my Domain Name to a partnering company, register.com provided me with an E-mail contact for the company that was now currently holding my Domain Name. After many E-mails to the partnering company, they sent me a URL to some sort of Control Panel, where they said I could unlock my Domain Name, the problem now was, that there was not any place to unlock my Domain Name, so I sent them another E-mail and I quote their E-mail answer, "Hello, We have removed the lock for you since there isn't actually a place to do it in your tool. Partner EU" It seems that they did not want to let go of my Domain Name and I guess that must happen to many other folks who are trying to move their Domain Name, any place where dollars are involved, they just don't want to let go of what they have in their pocket. Thomas, the holder of your Domain Name has to unlock it, in order for securesever.com to make the change. BTW, there were 26 E-mails involved by the time I switched my Domain Name to securesever.com. Richard
  19. youneverknow I have to agree with you. If your site is down, there is not much that you can do about anyway, and of course you know that your site is in good hands when it's hosted at TCH. Unless the down time is the fault of the person that maintains the site, than again he or she should know better. I used to have a site monitored at my old host and I received a few warnings that my site was down, there was nothing that I could do other than contact my host and wait. Richard
  20. KW I agree, truer words were never spoken. Richard
  21. Beth So what you are telling me, is that you enter the CuteSite "Insert HTML Place Holder" which contains your code after every copyrighted word or text on your page or where your client requests the copyright symbol, which is fine and I can understand the copyright laws. But, doesn't it become awkward placing those 150 x 50 pixel CuteSite "Insert HTML Place Holders" on the page that you are creating, of course if you created another "HTML Place Holder" image which would be, say 10 x 10 pixels image with the copyright symbol incorporated on the image as identification and are using that instead of the one that is supplied with CuteSite, than that would make more sense to me and would be something that I would use. I have just about stopped using those standard Trellix "Web Gem HTML Place Holders" and the CuteSite standard "Insert HTML Place Holders", what I have been doing for my Flash menus, Flash animations along with Forms, is taking a snap shot of the page when it is previewed cropping the actual image and using that image for the "HTML Place Holder", that way it makes creating a page a little easier task when you can see a actual image and it's placement instead of a 150 x 50 pixel "HTML Place Holder" Bruce, thanks for the correction. I just took Beth's code and placed it into a Trellix Web Gem and added some text. Richard
  22. Bruce In CuteCite Builder or Trellix you would have to place that code into what is called a "HTML place holder" and your final code would look like this, <!-- Start Gem Build Your Own Web Gem --> <font size="-1"><sup>&copy Copyright 2004 Meow Web Designs. All rights reserved;</sup></font> <!-- End Gem Build Your Own Web Gem --> I used Trellix to create this place holder. Any HTML, Script or any code that is placed on a page must be placed in that "HTML place holder". CuteSite Builder and Trellix Web are WYSIWYG editing programs and not a HTML Editor. In the past I have run Trellix sites which I have created through validators and wasn't too successful with being able to get any of the pages accepted. Richard
  23. Bill When I first visited the Total Choice Hosting Home page, to gain information about hosting packages back in October, your web site sold me on signing up with TCH, it wasn't your prices, Cpanel or Forums. I think that Total Choice Hosting has one of the most professional web sites that I have seen pertaining to hosting. I see no need to create a new site, just update the existing one and improve it as you go along. That's my two cents. Richard
  24. Beth The keystroke, Alt + 0169 will give you the same effect in text format, no need to use a Web Gem or insert HTML in Trellix or CuteSite. Richard

    Thomas When I placed your image on a page and publish it, the animation does not work, yet in CompuPic (Digital Content Manager) the animation works. Check it out here, http://rjskon.com/thomas/ Richard
