    Hey Everyone!

    Hey guys, Raúl here, a.k.a borfast, ex-TCH-Raul, for those who might still remember I still see a few familiar faces on the team page: Thomas, Dick, Bruce, and of course, Bill - glad to see you are all still around after over ten years! Every now and then I open TCH's website on my browser just to check how the business is doing but today I decided to stop by the forums and wish a Merry Christmas to everyone. TCH was a great place, not only for hosting my websites, but also for chatting and having a second "family". I spent good times here and I hope new customers feel the same! Congratulations to Bill for keeping the business up and growing!

    Php Version

    You're right, 4.4.1 on my accounts, too. Odd, I could swear I had read a thread about a PHP upgrade to 4.4.2 just a couple of days ago

    Php Version

    Actually, wasn't PHP recently upgraded to 4.4.2? Or am I mixing things? By the way, welcome to the forums!

    Anyone Ever Use Http://www.dnsstuff.com/?

    Yep, I use it a lot, when I don't have any console tools available. It's quite useful, sometimes!

    Could Someone Tell Me?

    If I recall correctly, the only problem I see with cheap certificates is that since they don't belong to well known companies, browsers will not recognize the issuer as a trusted one and a warning will appear to your site visitors. Other than that, it seems a nice service.

    Stealing Images?

    Bob, I don't know what yimg.com is and pointing my browser to that domain leads to nothing, there's no website there, so if I were you, until I knew what's going on, I'd block that domain from accessing my site. There's also one other thing you may want to look at, I've posted the link somewhere here on the forums, let me look...... here: http://www.totalchoicehosting.com/forums/i...topic=24086&hl=

    Cms Suggestions

    First of all, welcome to the family, Livelyretro! As for a CMS, stick with PHP, because you won't get many good Free CMSs available written in ASP - at least not as far as I know and I've spent a great deal of time investigating this. I ended up using Drupal, which, if you want to do some custom stuff, has a bit of a learning curve to overcome but once you get the idea, it's a really great CMS. If you just want to use it as a blogging tool or a simple content management system, then you can do it without much hassle. It's not as user-friendly as Mambo's.. errr... sorry, Joomla's administration panel but it's still quite simple and easy to use.

    Ie 7 Beta 2 Is Available

    Just a little suggestion: change the topic to "IE 7 beta 2 available", to avoid frustration feelings like I just had when I thought that the Beta was over and it would finally be launched By the way, for those of you who may find it strange for me to be eager for the launch of IE7, it's not because I'm changing my opinion about it. I still won't trust IE until it proves itself as a safe® piece of software. It's just that when IE7 launches, people will slowly start to upgrade and that will mean the beginning of the end of many headaches caused by the terrible CSS support IE 6 and its previous versions have

    Ms Access To Mysql

    LOL You have a point there, Steve I must be out of my mind to talk about MS Access and not mention OpenOffice.org 2.0 - it has a new database application called Base, which can use a lot of different standard database backends, including MySQL.

    Image Recovery

    wampthing, your files are probably still in your compact flash card. If it uses a FAT filesystem (which it probably does), when you delete a file from it, the file isn't actually deleted, instead, the space is marked as free, so when you copy some stuff onto it, the operating system knows it can use that space and overwrite whatever it is you had there before. Try some recovery software, in a FAT filesystem most of them should work. Of course some are better than others. R-Tools have some of the best known software for this. Ontrack is also pretty good (actually, I still consider them the best). They're the first two results you get from searching for "data recovery" in Google. EDIT: Do note that all those pro-level tools are quite expensive, so you may want to try to get some free ones.

    Ms Access To Mysql

    Steve and black cat, guys, I think you're asking and replying to different things. I believe black cat was referring to MySQL when he (she? argh! the internet communication's biggest problem ) asked if it is as good as it sounds and Steve I think you replied about the BullZIP.com application, right? Well, I don't know about the BullZIP.com stuff but I know about MySQL and it's a great database engine but it is not the same thing as MS Access. MS Access is more than a database engine, it is a database user interface, which allows you to do lots of stuff, including using other database engines. For instance, you can <a href="http://www.nusphere.com/products/library/devshed_mysql_odbc.htm">configure MS Access to use a MySQL database</a>, if you want. That gives you the power of MySQL and all the ease of use + functionalities of MS Access.
