  1. Add the correct doctype to force IE to standards mode. Actually, if you're going for 100% width -- do nothing. Divs are always the full width of the container that they're in (i.e. width: auto).

    Interesting article about "happy slapping"

    A bit of the old Ultraviolence never hurt anyone.

    If you had $50,000 seed money ...

    5 years? I'd invest it all. I could easily turn $50,000 into $75 or $100k in that time. No problem paying back $50k on that.

    [web] Hexagon Tables

    You'd have to overlap images (with clear corners), which works very, very poorly in HTML. Flash is probably your best choice here.
  9. Quote:Original post by DaBono If you go with technomancer's plan, don't forget to lock the appropriate tables during the multiple deletes. Otherwise another query might be getting some weird info in between the deletes.So far as I've seen, a multiple-table delete won't be executed until an appropriate lock has been made on all tables being deleted from. For MyISAM, this means that you have to wait until all tables are available (that is, until any currently executing SELECTS [ which may be concurrent ], INSERTS, UPDATES, or DELETES have finished). Normally, this is a fast process, but I'd recommend avoiding it if you can. You might also want to try the LOW_PRIORITY modifier to prevent lock up scenerios. This is less of an issue if you're dealing with InnoDB, which does row level locking, thereby allowing for concurrent selects and modification, but if you're using InnoDB you should just be using the foreign key constraints to make life a lot simpler anyway.

    [web] PHP and -&gt

    Quote:Original post by markr -> is used in php to refer to an object's member variable or call a member function. It's like . in c++. Of course they couldn't use . because it was already used for string concatenation. Mark They most certainly could have, but they chose not to. I'm obviously not privy to what the Zend guys were thinking at the time, but I wager that the total lack of re-use of operators has a lot to do with the fact that all scripts have to be compiled at run time. I suspect that we won't see any real operator overloading features in the language for quite some time as well, as a result.

    Einhander was probably the single most challenging game I ever played, but I'm happy to say that I was able to beat it without cheating.

    Sci-Fi "superior beings"

    Quote:Original post by kSquared Quote:Original post by Max_Payne Why do there have to be "superior beings" anyways, and if there really are, how could any human (author) have any idea of what they could possibly be like. Geez, sounds like someone's got a case of the Mondays. What's the deal with trampling all over creative license -- you do realize these are works of fiction, right? In any case, your logic doesn't hold water. By the same reasoning, how could any human being possibly understand what wizards are like, since we can't wield magic? (Bye-bye Harry Potter, The Hobbit, Chronicles of Narnia, etc.) It's just a plot device. Sheesh.Speak for yourself.

    OMG I have a girlfriend!

    Quote:Original post by smr Quote:Original post by denver Quote:Original post by Ainokea What are you doing in that picture? It looks like you are modeling on a runway. Yes - Autumn London Fashion week. Some friends needed male models for their small collection show. Was quite good fun - but I'm glad they offered us plenty of free Corona before going out on the runway. They called that fashion?I've seen worse.

    Pink Floyd at Live8

    Quote:Original post by grungery OH. MY. GOSH. I would pay so much to go see that. That's like one of those dream-come-true tours that you can only fantasize about, like (for me) when the alice in chains played with Maynard from Tool and I think, the Heart band. Anyway, why would they make such an important event so exclusive?!75,000 people is exclusive? Did you completely overlook WHY they're getting back together?
