  1. Guys, I've got this document today and post here to share with you. I hope it is helpful to you. Notice from jlhaslip: added quote tags. DO NOT cut and paste
  2. I use both IE and Firefox. Because I am a web developer and I have to make sure the webpages display normally in mainstream browsers.Well, I think IE run faster than firefox in windows platform.
  3. Well, if you wanna enjoy your travel more you don't need to plan the photography.But if your main purpose is taking photo shots, then you really need a good plan.
  4. There's a function in PHP: system()Find some tips on the PHP manual and try it. Maybe it can help.
  5. At the very beginning of your script, adding the following codes:<?phpheader("location:somepage.php");?>
  6. Just like all parts of a vacation, the photography portion must be planned. Photo opportunities should include local culture and famous scenes that would make it apparent where the vacation took place. Since the shots will most likely be taken outdoors, a time of day must be chosen to offer optimal lighting.PlanningPhoto Location OpportunitiesWhile researching the area that the vacation will take place, find locally significant sites that will reflect the beliefs and traditions of the area. These could be historic churches, temples, and parks.Find sites that the area is famous for. This could be certain theaters, amusement parks, famous restaurants, world record sites, and just about any site that is known outside of the vacation location.Even after locations are picked, keep your eyes open for other spur of the moment photo opportunities.LightingKeep in mind that most lighting for travel photography is going to be natural.In general, for rural areas, morning and evening are the best for optimum lighting. The light is not as harsh so it is easier to get portraits without squinty eyes. Sunrise and sunsets also cast an interesting glow over the landscape and the angle of the light will really bring out the textures.If it is a bit cloudy, lighting may be great all day long. The main thing is to get out there, enjoy yourselves, and capture the moment.When photographing outdoors, I always recommend using a polarized filter.LensesMost photographers want to incorporate at least some of the landscape in their vacation shots. The best lens to use for this is a wide angle. This lens will allow a person to still be prominent in the shot by being closer to the camera, while still keeping the background scenery perfectly in focus.A standard lens is fine for general photography throughout the day, but a wide angle lens should be used for shooting a person and landscape in the same scene. The short focal length allows the wide angle lens to keep everything equally in focus.
  7. I won't turn off Javascript. Because some website need JS to display crectly. Without JS support, the pages maybe a mass.
  8. Well, guys. This is my PS website: http://www.ldv007.cn/ If you use IE, it'll show you a webpage base on JS. If you use firefox or other browser, it'll show you a webpage base on flash.
  9. Try this codes: <?phpheader("refresh:0;url='http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/;
  10. I suggest use Fireworks to shrink image size. It has a better quality than Photoshop.
  11. I tried this nice tool to convert some movies to rmvb format and they work great. You can find the software here: http://www.freewarefiles.com/ Not sure if it supports direct rip of DVD's but it definitely supports a lot of video format. It can also convert some non-Nokia 770 playable rmvb files to playable ones. Anyways, enjoy.
  12. Can't you specify the very port in CS settings ?Since you got a ethernet card on motherboard, why you install another one ?In my opinion, one ethernet card is enough for LAN and ADSL.
  13. Cool site, but I don't think it can help people to do something useful.We've already have a windows on our computer anyway.

    Java Or C++

    C++ run faster than Java. But Java can run on lots of operation system without changing any source codes.
