    review my forum

    Some sort of focus perhaps? You have so many freaking topics that there is no way for your userbase to grow. Everyone is going to be so spread out that no one is going to form any real ties to your community. Communities should grow. So start small with just a couple core topics. Make...

    Small validation problem (vs. I'm learning xhtml/javascript/css)

    Please do not use capital letters in your html tags IE <IMG SRC="" HEIGHT="" WIDTH="" ALT="" /> as with XHTML these should all be lowercase. Generally accepted way of doing ids and class names is using camel case. thisIsACamelCaseString

    Hot/Warm Vizio 47" LCD 1080P $1649

    I also have the 37" 1080p vizio ... I love it to death. Works great with my wii at 480p (hd component) and my digital cable (hdmi not idea on the rez, I assume 1080p). If I get an HD dvd player that can do 1080p I'll know for sure, but that wont be for a while now.

    Want to learn a new scripting language...

    you obviously haven't ever tried it have you? Support for forms is next to zilch. Sure some apps can run on either. But not consistently.

    Want to learn a new scripting language...

    I never asked you to stop. Get off your horse. Secondly c# apps don't run on linux or osx, or any other operating system except windows. So everyone would have to include other operating systems. While I admit that java doesn't alawys run everywhere, it does an ok job.

    AJAX compatibility with older browsers?

    I did read your post and I gave you feedback on your problem and potential solution. I'm apologize to you if you didn't like the feedback I gave. I'm sure as you progress you will realize what I said holds water and I wasn't as off base as you think I am.

    While this last post was uncalled for and the previous one while relevant came across a bit harsh. It still made me laugh to think people post in here just for their post count. Didn't realize this was genmay. Anyway, back to the OP's question. Learning a language really is about problem...

    Feedback on our site for Business Professionals of America

    The flash intro almost killed me. I strongly dislike menus with sound. In fact I dislike all sounds that play w/o me telling them to do so. As mentioned above there are a lot of issues with the html. NOTE: Since you are missing your doctype the following errors are only a small set of what...

    AJAX compatibility with older browsers?

    While I don't know exactly what problem you are trying to solve. I am gathering that you do not understand enough about javascript to safely implement such a feature. That being said, from my point of view, with as little as i know about your current problem, I would not be using ajax to...

    Integrating mile radius into location search

    Or you can do some math :) Since the census data gives you lat and long of each zipcode you can approximate the distance between those two zip codes. R = 3956 miles dlon = lon2 - lon1 dlat = lat2 - lat1 a = (sin(dlat/2))^2 + cos(lat1) * cos(lat2) * (sin(dlon/2))^2 c = 2 * atan2(sqrt(a)...

    Grand scheme of things... how hard is learning BASIC?

    How much is C++ used in web development?

    You've already said you don't like OO so we know you don't follow MVC or any other popular design pattern. So what happens when you want to upgrade that code base? How do you grow with your client? How do you change presentation tiers? How do you change data tiers? Do you force them to...

    How much is C++ used in web development?

    A lot of people "know" mysql and php. Very few people (in comparison) know php and mysql. As I have recently found out while interviewing new hires, it is very apparent that most of those who are self taught write more spaghetti code and those who have had some sort of training write less...

    college concerns

    Well not for a Tier 1 school like Cal Tech, MIT, etc.. But for Middle ground schools like RPI, RIT, and Clarkson the method I outlined does work. I should clarify. By slacker I mean High C student. Obviously if you gave up all together in high school, perhaps education isn't quite your thing.

    college concerns

    Well the thing is this. Lets say your high school didn't challenge you so you were an under achiever and slacked off. You suddenly can't get into the college you want to get into because you were a slacker. You get into that school on a less demanding degree, take core courses, pull As and...

    college concerns

    I believe he is trying to figure out which degree is easier to get accepted under, and then transfer to the harder one after he has been accepted. (Very common practice for getting into a reach school)

    WTB Mac Mini (Intel 1.8 core duo)

    I just need the mac mini ram/hd doesn't really matter as I'll replace them anyway. Lowest price wins. (You could sell me one w/o ram/hd long as you promise it will boot/run fine). I plan on using the mini as a web server and coloing it. So it MUST work.

    good start to a website. The colors are very hard on the eyes, especially since I just woke up. I agree with the copy issues, and the lack of proofreading. I would also like to point out that the text is overall very small and not easy to read. The majority of the time I was squinting at...

From there you can just start to climb the ladder as your skills increase. Again, not knowing how old you are, I might suggest college...

    virtual dedicated server running PHP and ASP?

    to be quite honest php (ISAPI) on windows is just horrible and NOT good enough for production as it will crash your application pools from time to time. (The reason why most virtual and shared hosts make a new pool for each site.) The CGI (php.exe) extension does not crash your application...
