  1. It has been so long since I have read it anywhere... but the W3schools tutorials are a great resource.


    Please realize that I really did fall asleep at the keyboard last night... so my thought processes were way outta whack

    You would use page templates to form the pages exactly the same and the CSS is used that way as well. However, you would have to create scripts that would load the content from a remote test file with location markers into the target area (table). this would create a seemingly seamless load of the body text for the user.


    Would use script actions or page actions using php (for TCH servers) for the nav buttons (links) in the left panes to load the body text into the target table.

    The trick would be keeping the table sized properly for max text size so it does not resize itself and look jerky. This would not be too hard to do, though, with a web design program (even front page) just to check the table size and set the params at that for your max size encoutnered.

  2. Something Bill forgot (bad Bill... BAD Bill LOL)...

    before editing the registry, you should ALWAYS make a backup.

    Then, after you make the edit, you need to restart for the changes to take effect.

    Once you have deleted the reg key and restarted, you can then search for and remove the file referenced (in this case sfnuploader.exe)


    This file is not malicious in and of itself, but is a tracking agent.



    Ace, what makes you suspicious of something going on? Or did you just happen upon this process during routine boredom?

  3. was working on this, and fell asleep at computer. Will get back to it in the AM... I am sure someone else will have answered by then, though.


    I can think clearly enough to tell you that leaving the height portion out of the cell with your text in it will allow it to grow vertically wouthout problem. Except that it will not automatically word wrap for you.

    Can't think of anything for the tables vertical alignment other than anchors.

    Getting the pages to open like you want will require some more advanced scripting, frames or simply CSS and template pages

  4. Sorry bout that. That is the last thing I want to be known as, sort of :D


    I just get into so much stuff where I am responsible for getting around safegaurds and locks that I sometimes forget to think of the poor folks trying to secure or optimize a network... and typically at the request of someone who has no idea how or why. They just "read it somewhere" that this or that way is better.


  5. I think Jim put it best... it was probably localized to your ISP, or even local/regional DNS servers for your ISP. To have something like this happen to more than even 10% of the world would take a major disruption in the SONET backbones or other main datapaths on which the net runs. And even most of those are self-healing.

    If your ISP told you that figure, then I would seriously consider a new ISP if available... or realize that the tech you spoke with was not very well educated about the Internet beyond the support scripts given to all 1st level techs.


    Either way, it would appear that your ISP had to restore DNS tables from a backup for whatever reason, and they are not backing them up often enough. DNS can be critical to businesses with a web presence and should be backed up daily or at least every few days... a week is too long especially if it is the only DNS server they have for that area. Single-server DNS is apparent in this case due to the loss of data. The secondary should have kicked in and taken over upon failure of the first.


    Glad to see you back online, though.

  6. I made the offer to show a bypass only to try and troubleshoot without the extra effort of approaching IT. I know that sometimes the layman is nervous when approaching IT dept's doors... the things they do in those dark little caves would put the fear of God into some folks, LOL. Besides, I was only going to instruct to check and record the proxy settings and then disable proxy temp to see if the site could be accessed.


    I apreciate you all telling that it might not be the best idea. I am just so used to circumventing everything from the outside trying to get in that I don't even think of what it's like on the other side.


    Go, talk to them and get their answer... then we will go after the bypass <evil grin>


  7. You do have a couple of options here, which I am sure you realize, but do bear pointing out:

    1. If you have the room on your site, create a folder that is separate from your normal images, but at or above the images level (directly off the root for example) and place a duplicate of the images you would consider hotlinking to in there. Make sure to allow hotlinking, though.


    2. Create another folder same as above, but... instead of placing duplicates, place the only copy of those images you would consider hotlinking in this accessible folder. you still have full access to the images from your pages so it is not a big deal. The hard part is remembering which folder has which when building pages.


    As for Pros/Cons:

    Pro: you can link to anywhere you want and your pics and such will not appear with someone else's graphic watermarked on them, or just not at all.

    Con: So can anyone else.

    Con: every time someone opens the page that has the linkind file, or refreshes the page, that file is downloaded again and this, my friend, will cost you in bandwidth.

  8. The array types are very specific apparently. I was reading and saw that there are like 4 different types you need to enter just for rar files.


    If you know the different types, and what they need to be opened with, you can simply edit the php file to allow for those types.


    Bruce, my bet would be that you have encountered that level of accuracy that this file requires to operate correctly.


  9. If you are using an email client other than the webmail, then, yes, you can easily.

    You simply setup two different email accounts within the email client and that's that.

    I know that in the Microsoft products, they allow you to select which account you want to send form (Outlook 2000 and up) and Outlook Express allows similar if I recall correctly.


    Other than that, I make no assurances.

  10. I have been doing some reading around on the Internet and this seems to be a problem many folks have been having.

    I did see this code from that file that makes it appear that it won't work:




    $mime_types = array(



    // mime allow post img type allow avatar


    "application/pdf" => array( 1, 'pdf.gif' , 'PDF Document' ) ,

    "image/x-png" => array( 1, 'quicktime.gif' , 'PNG Image' ) ,

    "video/vivo" => array( 1, 'win_player.gif', 'VIVO Movie' ) ,

    "application/x-compress" => array( 1, 'zip.gif' , 'Compressed File') ,

    "video/x-msvideo" => array( 1, 'win_player.gif' , 'MS Video' ) ,

    "text/html" => array( 1, 'html.gif' , 'HTML Page' ) ,

    "audio/x-pn-realaudio" => array( 1, 'real_audio.gif', 'Real Audio File') ,

    "application/x-gzip" => array( 1, 'zip.gif' , 'GZIP File' ) ,

    "application/zip" => array( 1, 'zip.gif' , 'ZIP File' ) ,

    "application/postscript" => array( 1, 'postscript.gif', 'Postscript' ) ,

    "application/msword" => array( 1, 'word.gif' , 'MS Word doc' ) ,

    "video/quicktime" => array( 1, 'quicktime.gif' , 'QuickTime Movie') ,

    "application/powerpoint" => array( 1, 'apps.gif' , 'PowerPoint Doc' ) ,

    "audio/x-wav" => array( 1, 'sound.gif' , 'WAV File' ) ,

    "audio/x-mpeg" => array( 1, 'mp3.gif' , 'MPEG Audio' ) ,

    "image/jpeg" => array( 1, 'jpeg.gif' , 'JPEG Image' ,1) ,

    "text/plain" => array( 1, 'text.gif' , 'Text File' ) ,

    "image/pjpeg" => array( 1, 'jpeg.gif' , 'JPEG Image' ,1) ,






    You might try adding this into the code of that file, but be sure to back up your original:


    "audio/mp3" => array( 1, 'mp3.gif' , 'MPEG audio' ) ,

  11. not to hijack the thread, but I have interesting story about how those fountains work.

    PM me if you wanna hear it.

    EDIT: fuhgeddit... www.echelon.com/solutions/unique/appstories/WhiteRab.htm

    I have dealt with the LON technology for some time and this is definitely a flagship installation.
