  1. Connecting just the cable souldn't do anything, all its doing is extending the reach of usb port, if there is nothing plugged into the other end windows will not recognise anything. Unless it is more of a cradle, then i might recognise it as a usb hub, but even that will not create a drive.


    Very strange problem this.


    You could try temporary changing the drive letter of ur CD drive then plugging the usb drive in and see what happens.



  2. Hmmm, highlighting ur block elements using the WebDev mozilla extention, show things are a bit higgeldipiggledy (if thats even a word!). There should be a much simpler way for you to achive what you're trying to do. Try using alot less divs and adding borders to them to get your black boundary.


    I'd put all your formatting in an external style sheet aswell, makes things alot clearer.


    Hope that helps a bit, any q's just ask!


  3. Why does everyone seem to prefer Firefox to Mozilla?


    I've been using Mozilla for about a year now, I tried Firefox at one point but didn't like it, it didn't have as many features at Mozilla and lacked some useful things I always use.


    So whats wi Firefox over Mozilla?



  4. Looks like you need to copy that code into a file and call it something like mp3download.php


    Then to link to an mp3 to download you'd use something like "www.yoursite.com/mp3download.php?filename=mymp3.mp3" if not, try "www.yoursite.com/mp3download.php?file=mymp3.mp3".


    Let me know if that works, if not, I'll try the script out for ya and see what I can work out.



  5. Using to advantage the subject:


    As to configure outlook to separately receive this Spam (from SA) in a folder, as in horde ?



    This is possible by enabling SpamAssassin but NOT Spam box, then just create a new mail account with a name such as "spam" and setup a filter to put all the mail marked by spamassasin into the account you just created. You can then check this pop box when you wish using Outlook or Webmail.


    Hope that helps


  6. I've tried to get this script working without success, all I get is "Could not open directory /home/syqbsbxa/tmp/awstats" which sounds like its cause it need a password like Dick said.


    But it would be great if it was possible to get it working, cause then I could view the main stats of all of my accounts on the same page and compare them. Will it take much work to make it take a password?



  7. So I suppose if I configure my settings in my account, all times I see in forums are accordingly to my local settings, right ?

    That is correct.

    With 1 exception, when a post is quoted, the time which stats when the post being quoted was posted, is in the timezone of the person quoting the post, no matter what your settings are set to.


    Not that important, just thought I would enclose it for completleness (and to confuse some ppl! :) )



  8. I'm currently in the process of redesigning one of my sites using CSS instead of tables. I've got this far:


    www.brookfieldra.org (EDIT: Problem now solved)


    What I cannot work out how to do is make the menu column automatically repeat all the way down the page no matter how long the content is.


    Is this possible in CSS?





    Here's my stylesheet:

    (Note: I currently have a fixed height for the menu, this is needing changed, but I don't know what to!)


    >/* CSS Document */
    body {
     margin: 0px;
     padding: 0px;
     font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    #header {
     border-bottom: 2px solid black;
     margin: 10px 45px 0 245px;
    #menu	{
     border-bottom:3px solid black;
     border-left:3px solid black;
     border-right:3px solid black;
     margin: 0;
    #nav_cont {
    #nav {
     margin: 1em 0 0 5px;
     padding: 0px 0px 0px 25px;
    #nav li {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 3px 3px 3px 0px;
    /*	list-style-type: none; */
    #nav a, #nav a:visited {
    text-decoration: none;
    padding: 3px 8px 3px 8px;
    color: white;
    font-size: 13px;
    #nav a:hover, #nav a:active, #nav a:focus {
    color: #5C1211;
    background-color: #EFF183;

  9. I wouldn't think 1000 users would effect the perfmance considerably, but using .htaccess for the 1000 users would make things rather difficult for you to manage. I'd reccomend finding a PHP script from hotscripts.com.



  10. Hmm, ok, personly though I wouldn't call changing the DNS 'transfering' the domain. But I spose I can see how it can make sense, but mabey not technological sense (cause your just changing where the domain points to, not where it resides).


    Perhaps it could be clarified by adding "but keeping it with your current registrar".


    Might help to stop people getting confused.




  11. Hmm, never realise TCH blocked exe files, although it does make sense, (even Outlook Express blocks exe's!!) but remember its not hard to zip the exe up before you send it.


    Where abouts in the UK are you Glen? I'm from sunny Scotland!!


    Hope you make the right choice and choose TCH!!



  12. Hey Skeptismo,


    If you first sign up with your new TCH hosting account, then upload your site to it, you can then just change the nameservers at your registrar to the TCH ones and your site will not experience any downtime atall.


    However, if you wish to change the registrar of your domain to TCH, there will unfortunatly be a couple of days downtime while this is carried out. If you're happy with your current registrar then I'd reccomend staying with them. Not that there is anything wrong with transfering your domain to TCH, its just whether its worth the down time.


    Hope that helps



  13. I think that would benifit from being re-worded, its not right. Changing your DNS is not the same as transfering your domain to TCH, that would be changing the registrar/IPS Tag (UK domains). Changing the DNS just changes where the domain points to not where it is registered.


    (I know you know this Bruce, just clarifying it for others)



  14. Well thank you all so much for the advice guys! You've been as helpful as ever!


    Looks like I'll be sticking to Photoshop for the time being, now back to learning CSS so I can actually structure the designs properly!



  15. If your happy with the sound coming out of your motherboard, I'd stick with it. The latest motherboards have v good on board sound cards, some even with inbuilt 5.1 audio. Which brings me to ask, are you after 5.1, 7.1 audio or just a plain and simple 2 speaker job?



  16. The reason you're having problems is because you havn't changed your nameservers to point the domain to TCH. The nameservers are still godaddy ones, which is forwarding your domain to your website at homestead through the settings in your godaddy control panel. You need to use godaddy to change your nameservers to ns1.totalchoicehosting.com and ns2.totalchoicehosting.com


    Hope thats helps


  17. Photoshop beats fireworks 100 (PS) to 1 (FW) I don't find fireworks to be a very good program... even though I only used the trial  :P

    Yeh, your prob right for photo editing, I'd never consider using anything other than photoshop for that, but I've heard that for web design fireworks can be quite good, especially the latest version (MX 2004) which is a significant improvement over previous versions.


    The thing that made me start this topic was in a UK internet magazine called .net they have a mini mag for web design, and show tutorials for creating web sites in fireworks, and using it to optimise images etc. However they also seem to like photoshop, and I just wondered if it would be worth giving Fireworks a try, but from your opinions it doesn't look like it!




    Edit: Ooooo! My 100th post! ;)
