Thanks, Mike.

Why would all of a sudden I get a "Address not found error" on FaceBook when all other sites work. hmmmm

clear your dns cache (or reboot)

Did both .. nada ... would it be my ISP's problem?
 
  2009-01-10 12:29:36 AM
what OS?
 
  2009-01-10 02:34:13 AM
Vista ...
/hangs head even lower ... if possible.

No updates installed before or after ...

really nothing done between happy and sad ...

No_47: I think they're both derivative of the 50s' idealistic society. Yes the little cartoony guys look a lot alike, but they're both based on a time when those little cartoony guys were in everything, and all looked the same.

Well, that's a given. My point was that Fallout was the first game to reference it, Bioshock followed suit, Fallout 3 followed the design of the first two games, and now a bunch of clueless critics apparently believe Fallout 3 is aping Bioshock.

I haven't been in here for a while, forgive my absence.

Anybody know of a good mouse for a laptop?
Sounds like a simple question, I have 3 already.

1: A wired cheap one, the scroll wheel goes up when you try and scroll down, and is generally not useful
2: Microsoft wireless, says 1054 on the back. Got one of them left and right scroll things on the middle button, and thus the middle click doesn't work for shiat.
3: Logitech, wireless laser. Dunno the model, doesn't say, but not a cheap one. Best of the bunch, but now seems to double click when I single click more often than not.

Since they package them up in that plastic packaging that requires sharp instruments to get in, you can't really try before you buy.

I just want a decent mouse.

Is there a piece of software, other than in the BIOS, native to XP Pro or a trusted free software, which will give me the temp of my processor and such?

I have been looking here and there for a long ass time for a temperature gauge for my computer, but can't find any which use a red LCD/LED read out instead of a blue one. I figure my only choice at this point is software. I have six 120mm fans in this case and I'm thinking about ditching some of them because my computer sounds like a lawnmower.
 
  2009-01-10 10:35:31 PM
Fan monitoring software is usually motherboard-specific.

RabidDog, I have a $10 Genius notebook mouse (USB - wired) for my eeepc which is just grand

TehNacho, if you're running Vista there's probably a hundred different Sidebar Gadgets that'll do that..

Mike: That's what that Sandisk thing looks interesting, though their way of measuring durability in that press release is a bit bogus...

SanDisk... I wonder, does it also have that unnecessary p.o.s. software that temporarily hijacks your system when you plug it in and asks you to reboot?

Every time someone comes to me at work with a SanDisk (small/portable) flash drive, I wail in despair.

Well, installed speedfan and above is what I got. My machine had been on for about 45 minutes, nothing but internet browsing.

I have a GeForce 8800 GT(X?) 320mb card. 55 is pretty hot eh? Particularly when I haven't been playing games...

I have 1x 120mm fan bringing in air on the front, 2x 120mm fans in the top exhausting, 1x 120 mm fan in the back exhausting, and 2x 120mm fans on the side, exhausting. I am using the stock Intel Cooler on the processor, stock fan on the vid card, and my PSU is a thermaltake toughpower which has a single 140mm fan, which I think may be a problem because it blows straight upward into the case.

Thoughts on what I ought to do?

Blow the dust out of your videocard's HSF.
But GPUs do run pretty hot so I wouldn't be concerned unless it started bluescreening all the time.

The PSU fan is designed to exhaust hot air out the back of the case.

That all looks perfectly normal. GPUs get extremely hot. Don't worry about it if it isn't causing a problem.

For comparison: I have a 7600GS without a fan idling around and Nvidia's xserver-settings tool says it's at 49°C at the moment.
The other piece of (thermal related) information the tool gives is something called the "Slowdown Threshold" being at 120°C..
 
  2009-01-12 07:23:26 PM
Soooooo... I guess I'm not going to worry...

Well, if it gives me an excuse to add some new crap to my computer... I could worry a little.

How do I use Dreamweaver to:

-- Give my site its own favicon? Do I need to manually paste the code into every page I have, or can I use CSS magick?

-- Customize the subheading for the site when it shows up on search engines (e.g. "Interesting, bizarre and amusing news stories, along with regular photo manipulation contests")?

N. S. Radieaux: Give my site its own favicon? Do I need to manually paste the code into every page I have, or can I use CSS magick?

You'll need a line of code like this:

<link href="favicon.ico" rel="icon" type="images/x-icon"/>

on every page - though hopefully you are using code that generates pages on the fly or shares a common "header" so you would only need to add that line to one file. Sorry, no CSS magick for this.

The subheading thing is this:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
 
  2009-01-13 05:30:48 PM
Uh, sorry I meant the subheading thing is this:

<meta name="description" content="Interesting, bizarre and amusing news stories, along with regular photo manipulation contests." />

/Preview? Damn the preview men, full interweb speed ahead!

The only thing you have to do to make a favicon show up is to dump it in the root of your webserver (ie where your index.html is) and make sure its called favicon.ico and that its formatted properly.

obviously not a geek: is there a way to hook up a camera phone to your pc direct to download pictures/video or do you have to send via email to your pc? any thoughts are appreciated

crunchief: obviously not a geek: is there a way to hook up a camera phone to your pc direct to download pictures/video or do you have to send via email to your pc? any thoughts are appreciated

Depends on the phone. Some come with USB cables, Bluetooth, or both that may allow you to do this. Other have SD or memory stick cards that you can just pop out and stick into your computer or card reader. Basically, it's all over the map and depends on what you have, so your best bet is to Google your phone and/or see what the manual says.

I lol'd. I thought it had to be a parody, but the website seems to be real.
 
  2009-01-15 05:04:05 PM
So I FTP stuff from my eeepc to my Mac Mini... I have a new router and tried doing it over the wireless and it was extremely slow, around 90 kilobytes a second. Signal is good and internet access over the wireless is fast. On my old gear, with the wired connection I could FTP and about 11 megabytes a second. It's a 100Mbit router.

Any ideas? (apart from trying a cable and seeing if it's still slow - I'm getting me a 20m cable later)

Is this a wireless G router? Theoretical throughput on 54G is 27.3Mpbs. If both clients are wirelss you can chop that in half so you're looking at 13.5Mbps in each direction-theoretically. Throw in some collisions and renegotionation and you've got your sloowww speed.

Long story short-get a cable.
 
  2009-01-15 07:45:16 PM
Fenis-Wolf:

The theoretical maximum throughput of 54G is 54Mbps. It's not just a clever name. That's Megabit per second. Not byte. This is abnormally slow. I should be getting 4-6 Megabytes per second.
 
  2009-01-15 08:13:15 PM
O'Reilly (new window) disagrees. 54G is 54 megaBIT per second-at the very best you will get 6.75 megaBYTES over 54G. Assuming one way traffic and no collisions as I said.
 
  2009-01-15 08:17:01 PM
Thanks Benny and Fenis.

that's exactly what I just said, and not what you said at all. You said it's 27.3 megabits per second (Mbps).

and I'm getting 90 KILOBYTES per second (KBps), which is about 0.1 Megabytes per second (MBps).

I said I should be getting between 4 and 6 Megabytes (MBps) per second.

O'Reilly agrees exactly with what I said, and now I don't think you know what you're talking about. You most certainly don't need to half the bandwidth if both clients are wireless, either. Do you know the different between MB and Mb?
 
  2009-01-15 08:34:11 PM
that should be: 0.01 Megabytes per second**
 
  2009-01-16 01:12:03 AM
and it's fine through the cable. Even hit 13MB/s

OK then, what's the code (or Dreamweaver command) for centering an image on the page? Not just horizontally like this, but vertically?

Regarding vertically centering something on a web page:
see that scrollbar over there? --------------------------------------->


That's something that makes the vertical part a bit difficult..



For the horizontal part, a CSS-less way would be

<div align="center"><img src="image url"></div>
 
  2009-01-16 12:29:28 PM
N. S. Radieaux: what's the code (or Dreamweaver command) for centering an image on the page (vertically)?

CSS: vertical-align: middle;

Keep in mind this centers it based on the size of the parent element.
 
  2009-01-17 11:54:14 AM
Gah, I hate Microsoft mice. Why do they make the scroll wheel so bad? They must have had a meeting and decided to make it suck.

I've heard good things about TigerDirect, but my first experience with them has been total suckage. Did I miss a memo, or just get bad luck of the draw?
 
  2009-01-19 08:52:45 PM
Most people I know recommend Newegg. Never tried TigerDirect, what did you order? Maybe the part was just a lemon.
 
  2009-01-19 10:06:47 PM
They've got better customer service than newegg in my opinion. Newegg is all "well, we'll take care of you this ONE time" but TD is all "our bad, we'll fix everything for you, and anything else it takes to keep your business."

One monitor was DOA, but Tiger replaced it and covered the extra shipping charge. I was happy.
 
  2009-01-19 11:42:06 PM
Haven't even gotten the stuff yet. They took down the order wrong, didn't put in my shipping address (different than billing), screwed up my name which was spelled out for them three times, credit card didn't work because it didn't match my incorrectly spelled name, appear to be shipping to wrong address although no one there is sure where to. Dropped call, and a couple days of an IVR not picking up. I had called before the order was processed to make sure the shipping address was my workplace, but different web sites report different things. So I expect something within the next couple days, but I'm not sure where. At this point all the parts should be the expected parts. We'll see.

Along with other more minor issues.

Man, I've worked in tech support and customer services, so I've been very polite and cool and all to this point, but I'm about to farking lose it. I emailed to ensure at least the one backordered hard drive would be sent to my correct address, but I am getting the runaround, vague answers, and basically "I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that".

Can a apache / linux admin tell who (what IP and when) accessed a page, even if this page has no tracking code on it? Maybe some log of some kind thats kept automatically for every visitor on every page? Is there a setting for this?

Yes.

Maybe some log of some kind thats kept automatically for every visitor on every page?
Yes.

Is there a setting for this?
Yes.

It's done via the apache config and it's usually enabled as a default, so if you don't want to log the IP addresses, you usually have to change the values.
The log files itself are usually somewhere under /var/log/, e.g. /var/log/httpd/ or /var/log/apache.

There are also programs to analyze apache log files, for example lots of web hosters use "webalizer" so their customers can get a few stats about the visitors their website had.

Thanks Benny and V o' D. Now that I've finally updated my site, I have one last question:

Google is still linking to obsolete pages that I've removed. I've read that I can train robots to prevent search engines from linking to my site, but I do I arrange them to stop the search engines from linking to particular pages? (Hints on how to get my main page to the top of the search engine results for searches on my name are also appreciated.)

Google "robots.txt" and you'll find information on how to set up a proper file. Note that bots are supposed to follow those rules but that doesn't necessarily mean they will.

You can also Google for "search engine optimization" and read more than you'll ever want to know about SEO. Google has a section of their site discussing that topic.
