  1. I'm having the same issues, plus the more detailed stats aren't updating either. At first I thought it was just leftover glitches from when my account was suspended, but it lasted over a month after I got unsuspended, so I'm not so sure anymore. I've looked into the problem as much as I can, but without better access to information on the server, that's not much.~Viz
  2. Thanks guys. Two more questions, though.1) The two nameservers (ns1 and ns2) need to be seperate machines, correct?2) How do the names ns1.domain.tld and ns2.domain.tld propogate across the web if the nameservers are responsible for propogating things beneath them across the web.~Viz
  3. Thanks, but more of what I'm looking for is not how to point my registrar to my nameservers, but to create them in the first place. See, right now I don't have machines ns1.mydomain.com and ns2.mydomain.com, nor am I sure what they need to have to work properly.~Viz
  4. So, I'm thinking of setting up a server on my own. Not that I don't love Xisto, but I'd let to get more practical experience. Plus, my college gives us fully routable unique IPs, so I figured I'd take advantage of this. The one hangup, as far as I can tell, is that I need a nameserver to allow my domain name to point to my computer. So I was wondering what is required to create a name server. Is i t something that anyone can do? Or does it require registration? And if it's something anyone can do, as I believe it is, how do I go about setting one up?~Viz
  5. I know that Gamma server is under intense load right now. I'm not sure about the other servers. I'm trying to notify people who have the capabiliy to do something about it. Please be patient, and know that it is likely not your account.~Viz
  6. No problem. It's not the most obvious of functions. I only stumbled across it recently when I was working with the object oriented mysqli interface and wanted to obtain an associative array of the results. A comment by someone at the bottom demonstrated how, using this function, so I wasn't clear on what his code did. I looked up the function, and it turns out it is quite useful.~Viz
  7. Well, if you can get your code to return an array of the arrays to be merged, then it is really simple to pass them in as arguments to array merge. Look at the call_user_func_array. ~Viz
  8. Just showing us the table code probably isn't going to help. If it's layout issues, it is likely to be a problem with the surrounding layout or the placement of the table in the code. If you could show us a larger snippet, maybe we could help you. Also, which browser are you using, because that makes a big difference. In fact, the cross-browser issue makes doing tables with just CSS and HTMLDivElements is extremely difficult. I spent a couple years working on that before I gave it up, because getting it to work in even one browser is just not worth it when tables work fine unless you break something.~Viz

    Sql Db

    If you can do local, as is stated by others, it is the better method. Also, depending on the SQL setup, I believe it is possible to prevent non-local connections, so assuming a remote DB connection will work when you don't have complete control over the SQL setup is not a good idea. However, remote connections are used by large companies that maintain servers devoted solely to DB work.~Viz
  10. There are also several other color picking variations. One very useful one is HSV (Hue, Saturation, Value) where Hue picks the color, Saturation determines how deep the color is, and Value determines how bright the color is. This can be a little misleading though, because yellow is a naturally more bright color than, say, red. One of the reasons for using RGB in screens (and thus computers) is that the human eye only has red, green, and blue receptors. The other colors are mixes of those three, so it is natural to emit light from devices in those colors. Since paper absorbs light more than reflects (emits) it is pigment based, so the primary pigments, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow are used, where each pigment absorbs one of the primary light colors, Red, Green, Blue respectively.~Viz
  11. One thing to remember is that Google Analytics (I believe) uses a slightly different definition of "page view" than we do. I'm not sure why, but it's the only thing I can think of for the discrepancy. I've been the only person (pretty much) looking at my site while it undergoes development and testing, so I know very well how many page views there are, upwards of 100 because I keep refreshing. Google Analytics doesn't count many of these as separate page views, instead, it seems to simply keep that count as time on the page. So perhaps for each visit, a jump from homepage to another page back to homepage counts as 1 view, since it is one person viewing the page on one visit, even though it is two loads. I think that is how the calculation is done. It doesn't seem to be total page views, but visits to that page. Also, I haven't noticed a difference depending on where the code is placed. I agree that the end is best, because it doesn't cause a slowdown of the page loading. Edit: I just stumbled across something on the Google Analytics help that confirms this. For the full article, which explains in pretty good detail differences between analytics and other stat generators, see this help page. ~Viz
  12. Yeah, that works, but it doesn't seem to work if the include function and the call to include are in a separate javascript file. As opposed to an embedded script tag like the one you have now. Right now I'm using a workaround where I load the javascript via AJAX for Safari, but I don't like that, and I hate it even more because I have to directly include where I want it as it seems to maintain local scope. Unless I'm messing something up.Edit: Also, I don't know if this matters, but I'm using XHTML 1.1 (Strict), so I don't know if Safari treats that as different from 1.0 Transitional, but since the page is served to Safari as text/html (due to issues with DOM manipulation when it is application/xhtml+xml) I don't think that would be an issue.~Viz
  13. I've been working on an include function for javascript. It works just fine in Firefox and IE, but for some reason, it doesn't result in the loading of the scripts for Safari. The code is as follows: function include(url) { // Include Guard var scripts = document.getElementsByTagName("script"); for (var index = 0; index < scripts.length; ++index) { if (scripts.src == url) { return; } } // Inclusion var head = document.getElementsByTagName("head").item(0); var script = head.appendChild(document.createElement("script")); script.type = "text/javascript"; script.src = url;}Any suggestions as to how to improve this script so it works in Safari would be appreciated. I used alerts to check and make sure that Safari wasn't returning prematurely, so I know it is being "included", but the included scripts aren't being loaded. ~Viz
  14. That's what I thought. Oh well, it would be a useful feature for robots.txt, but I suppose it might be difficult to develop.Thanks,~Viz
  15. I have a friend who has helped me out a lot with some of the content on my site, so I have acknowledgments to this friend wherever I had help. However, because the name of this friend is pretty common on the page, search engines tend to index the page for searches of this friend's name. However, my friend doesn't like having a lot of results turn up for the name, so right now I have the page set to disallow in the robots.txt. I'd like to both respect my friend's wishes and have the site indexed, so I was wondering if there is some way to tell search engines they are allowed to index the page, but not according to certain keywords.Thanks,~Viz
