  1. That's good to know, I'm not interested in a dedicated server at the moment, but I expect to be getting one at the end of this year. (if growth continues...) Thanks again for the quick responses
  2. Thanks for the quick response. I remember there was talk about Windows boxes a while back but it was decided not to use them. I was hoping this had changed, too bad.
  3. It's been a while since I was last here as I am currently with a host that has Windows based servers. Is it likely that Total Choice will ever be supplying Windows Hosting at all? As I was so happy with the service here previously I would gladly come back, but I need to have Windows. Thanks, Marcel.
  4. yeah, me too... Because of the need for a Windows (learning ASP.Net) host I had to drop my account at TCH. I've only been with the new host and have already had to submit three tickets compared to none at tch.... *sigh* If TCH ever decide to host WIndows servers, I will be back in a flash. (I still browse the forums thought, have learnt a lot here.)
  5. Something a little like the menu on the top of my pages? http://www.vandenarend.com/www/galleries/ww2/ This was done with DHTML menus, the program I use is from SoThink, but there are plenty of free DHTML menu generators available.
  6. I myself use Remote Administrator (RAdmin) or RealVNC depending on the situation. I personnally prefer RAdmin due to speed and ease of use, but, because of the need to install software on the clients, I will sometimes use RealVNC.
  7. I don't know if this will help you, but if you set up your form to feed the results int a mysql database (most people here can help you with any queries regarding that) you can export/import all of the information into MS Access via the ODBC. download the MySQL ODBC driver here: http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/odbc/3.51.html _________________ You can import via: File | Get External Data | Import.. Scroll to the bottom of the list and Choose 'ODBC databases ()' Then you can fill in your account and server details to import the data. _______________ Hope fully this will help you, I am at work at the moment, so this has been done in haste. Marcel.
  8. Hello, I've only worked with Kylix for a short while, if you have experience with Borland Delphi or C+ then you will have no problems with Kylix other than the problems with running under a different OS. I've heard rumors that Borland will be discontinuing further development and support with Kylix, so you may want to check that. There is also a 30 day version available at ht*p://www.borland.com/products/downloads/download_kylix.html for you to try. If you have any more questions don't hesitate to ask. Marcel
  9. kaseytraeger, Sorry, I was a little unclear on that, I'm just running the code that TCH-Lisa posted. (the mysqldump) Just change the filename of the backup, ie. /home/cpanelname/backups/backup-monday.sql.gz /home/cpanelname/backups/backup-tuesday.sql.gz /home/cpanelname/backups/backup-wednesday.sql.gz etc. (also a backup-bi-hourly.sql.gz) And let them run on the corresponding day in Cron So the backup made on Monday will not overwrite the Sunday backup, but it will overwrite the backup made on the previous Monday. This way, I will (hopefully) always have a weeks worth of backups.
  10. lol, just like me, another colourblind male, according to my girlfriend....
  11. What can I say? thanks again for the quick responses
  12. Thanks Don, that was one I had seen before, but I don't really understand how it works, could someone enlighten me?
  13. Thanks again Rob, you guys are great. (ht*p://colormatch.dk/ doesn't work well with Firefox 0.9 though)
  14. Sorry, I have been searching for about an hour (constantly being sidetracked by other posts ) and haven't found it yet. A while ago someone posted a link to a page where you could enter a colour code, and a number of complimentary colours would be shown (even clashing colours if I remember correctly). Could someone please help me to find this site again? thankyou, Marcel.
  15. Thanks Lisa, we are currently running a helpdesk database on the servers and a backup is very important for us. This may be a tip for others; We are running 8 backup scripts, one for each day of the week, and also one script that runs every two hours. So, if we realize on a monday morning that something has gone wrong on Saturday, we can always go back to the backup made on saturday morning, and not the 'empty backup' made on the Sunday or Monday morning. Also, if we realize straight away that something has gone wrong, we can always use the bi-hourly backup, with a maximum loss of two hours of data.
  16. Thank you very much dick Thumbs Up, while searching I did find this tool, it couldn't help me with this font, but maybe it can help others: ht*p://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/
  17. Could someone please help me find this font? it was once on my pc, but when it got replaced I forgot to backup the fonts Thanks in advance, Marcel.
  18. Hello Nesdon, you might want to fix you link (there's an 'L' in it)
  19. I'm not sure I understand your question correctly because, if you enter a value for FIELD2 and leave FIELD1 as NULL or zero, MySQL will handle the auto-increment for you when you post. If you want to handle the auto increment yourself you need something like this: result = SELECT MAX(FIELD1) FROM MySQLTable; if result = Null then MyNextRecordNumber = 1 else MyNextRecordNumber = (result + 1) This will most likely not work at all, (it is only pseudo code), but it gives you an idea of how to tackle the problem.
  20. Hi Natalie, Thanks for the reply, I haven't been able to find anything since the original post, so the only option (I think) will be to do a proper upload of the image file and manipulate it server side. The navigation buttons were made with Sothink DHTMLMenu, you can download a 30 day trial there. Also, it integrates into FrontPage and Dreamweaver. Marcel.
  21. This is not exactly what you are looking for, but this is how I would go about it. - Convert all of your text pages to html. (just copy the text, and paste it into any html editor) - Save the files using the same folder structure and naming conventions as with the text files you now have. (this is only to make it easier for yourself) - Make one page that will have a link to each of the folders you just made. When you click on the link you should get a list of all the files you just made. (as long as there is no index.htm) - now go to this page and look for a good script to search your own pages, "phpMySearch" looks pretty good. This is not the most elegant of solutions for your problem, but it will most probably help you out in the short term untill you have a better grasp of php and html. (and hopefully you'll be able to learn enough from installing one of the scripts to be able to adjust it to meet your exact needs)
  22. Changing the name of the "full_efx_mobile_entertainment.htm" (your home page) to "index.htm" should fix your problem, but change the name in your HTML editor otherwise you will have dead links on your other pages. Your other pages will most probably be renamed to index_002.htm, index_003.htm... but that shouldn't be a problem. * EDIT - Dick beat me to it *
  23. Hallo all, I am trying to get a picture resized for viewing purposes only, but am having a few problems. Basically, I would like to have an 'editing area' of 640 x 480 pixels, the file that is put in this editing area may be any size, but if it is larger, I would like it to be proportianally resized until it fits. I understand how to do this when the files are stored on the server, but I want this to be done with files that are on the users computer, so, in actual fact they are not really made smaller, but are just squeezed into a frame. I don't think I have explained myself very clearly, if you go here you can see what I am trying to do. (just browse for a jpg file on your system and click on 'apply effects to this file') Thanks a in advance, Marcel. ps. by the way how can I filter the browse to only show *.jpg files?
  24. This isn't a script at all, but I have been using Express Thumbnail Creator and am very pleased with the results. It costs 39.95, so, it is definitely not the cheapest, but, it does exactly what I need, including watermarking. Here is a Gallery I made with it. Marcel.
  25. Is that also possible with .shtm or .shtml pages? I would like to use the random html generator, but I can't get it to work with .php files, or am I doing something wrong?
