    Most used/useful Visual Studio addons?

    Currently installed in VS2012: - Source control / SharePoint specific stuff - Indent Guides - Spell checker - Web Essentials - ReSharper - NuGet It's interesting to see so many using ReSharper. KingKaeru turned me onto it a couple years ago and I can't imagine visual studio without it. It...

    What kind of project would anyone use Python/Django for?

    Every programming language, framework, technology, etc I have learned throughout my career has taught me something valuable. If the only tool in your belt you respect or like working with is PHP / Drupal, expanding your horizons will certainly be of benefit to your future as a developer. If you...

    Paid IDEs, how many use em?

    Day job? Visual Studio 2010 because of the projects being worked on (SharePoint, WPF Apps, ASP.NET). Anything other than Visual Studio would be unacceptable. We are currently switching to 2012- so far so good. I am a huge fan of NetBeans though. In my own time or on side projects I am usually...

    The dead horse, PHP or asp.net?

    Yeah, they developed HipHop for that. Pretty cool stuff. Though, as you noted in your post, it is still largely written in PHP (syntax; and likely debugged as such by their developers? obviously I am not a Facebook dev). I am sure they have some good standards in place to avoid the massive...

    User Authentication with PHP?

    You mean without storing a username and password to the database? Well, as long as we are talking PHP, then trying to get that file directly (via wget or a browser, whatever) will not result in access to that information since it is stored in a variable server-side, and not sent to the client...

    Which technology(s) / language(s) to write linux web application/service?

    Given your desired platform Python seems like the obvious choice. You know it will always be there and available on raspberry pi and likely any modern Linux distro that someone may have replaced Debian with (or if on different hardware). Plus it is perfectly capable of the task.

    Which Windows OS for home web server?

    Right, with the cost of hosting right now (srsly, unlimited domains/bandwidth/space at a decent host for less than $50 / year) about the only reason to host your self at home is to learn how it all works. It's a great way to get an understanding of web servers, linux, etc and can actually be a...

    [H]|Gaming IRC Channel?

    I'd recommend using the GameSurge network. I think it is the network most TWL folks are on and it's full of game specific and community channels. irc.gamesurge.net http://www.gamesurge.net/

    Stalker SoC what are Propane and ethane used for?

    The only real use they have is setting up traps and such (they explode). I bet they were left in the game but whatever real use they had never made the cut.

    Looking for 1 or more Web developers for [H] related project.

    What you did here was weed out anyone who would say "I'll do it for 10k" as well as alienated anyone who would say "I'll do it at cost for the community, and will help maintain it for no cost as I'm a gamer too" as cost will certainly not be $0. Hopefully with your clarification you will get...

    Looking for 1 or more Web developers for [H] related project.

    We are only at post 18 and what you are asking for and willing to give has changed a couple times. What's the deal? If you are looking to have this project programmed from the ground up you are either going to have to fork over some serious cash or end up with some pile of unmaintainable...

    Time Draws Short for Office XP

    Two fails, one sentence. <reward> :) It took me awhile to get used to the new ribbon interface, it's obviously the superior interface, but that still didn't make it easy after a decade of the old interface. I'm still not thrilled with 2007 which we largely use at work but I do really like...

    A series of ignorant JS cross domain scripting questions!!

    If I remember right, I believe jQuery is using JSONP to implement getJSON. Basically, instead of performing an actual XMLHttpRequest (which is limited to the domain) it creates a new <script> element with the src attribute set to your request. Since a script element is not limited to the domain...

I used to avoid JavaScript like the plaque until decent cross browsers frameworks like jQuery and Prototype came into existence and stabilized. Frankly, I can...

    I'm not sure how well Joomla! is going to expand if it takes off. You may also want to combine those css and js asset files from the templates/plugins you are using. Other than that... your login box looks nice :)

    Client wants to update portion of the site themselves ... Easiest solution?

    Why not just make the file a .txt or .html file and include it? Why restrict the client to editing a variable which will likely require teaching them escaping. Either way, it is a poor solution. If the OP does not know a server-side language (and his answers would indicate he does not), then...

    jQuery searchable paginated tables?

    Oh indeed, once you get Tablesorter matching the functionality of DataTables, you are going to be looking at similar footprints. For what it does, DataTables is tiny at ~60kb in minified form. I use DataTables a lot for web application interfaces that deal with LARGE sets of data. It handles...
