  1. 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!
  2. You want the "DESCRIBE" statement. http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/4.1/en/describe.html
  3. 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
  4. Actually, wasn't PHP recently upgraded to 4.4.2? Or am I mixing things? By the way, welcome to the forums!
  5. Confess, you just love teasing us, don't you? Can't wait to see what this one is
  6. Welcome back, Jim! We missed you swapping british jokes with Andy :P
  7. Yep, I use it a lot, when I don't have any console tools available. It's quite useful, sometimes!
  8. 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.
  9. 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=

  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.

    I thought he had just deleted notepad.exe... Just kidding, I know what you meant
  17. If you see yourself working under Linux again, Revelation may be of interest.
  18. That looks like something that could be really usefull! Thanks, Mark!
  19. Dan and Jordynn, everything will be fine, we are all sending positive energy for you and your daughter. She'll be fine and back home in no time, I'm sure.
  20. Welcome back, Mark! Exactly Chlorophyll
  21. You'll need to subscribe to a service that has agreements with several mobile operators. That service should provide you with an SMS gateway through which you can send your text messages. A Google search for 'SMS gateway' will probably provide you with some answers. If you have a dedicated server, you can also have your own SMS gateway but that's a bit more complicated, given that you need to use SMS centers from other operators.
  22. Hey, it didn't work on my site! A few more: http://www.eeggs.com/items/18686.html
  23. Travis, I won't say anythiong about the PHP 5 upgrade, it has been talked about way too many times. I'll just make a correction to what you said: so far I haven't seen anyone (staff or forum members alike) saying that people don't want PHP 5.
  24. PowerPoint presentations can't be played in a webpage, as far as I know - they were never meant to. But perhaps Eric Meyer's S5 can help you.
  25. I agree with Steve. If you don't know why you want to convert your site from static HTML into PHP, then don't do it. First, learn what PHP is and what it can be used for. Then you'll be able to tell what you can use it for and how you can use it on your website.
