I've been overcharged... Apr 24, 13, 5:37 p.m.
I've been a reseller for a hosting company for a few years now. Have about 50 domains hosted with them. I've been paying north of $420 per month for this privilege on a shared hosting platform. Service has been reasonable.
Jumped onto their website yesterday just to check a few things...lo and behold all their plans have changed and they have a shared hosting reseller plan for 100 domains, unlimited traffic etc etc. - $49.95 per month.
This new plan has been in place since mid last year. So I've been overcharged around $370 per month for about 9 months.
My question is, should they have alerted me of this? I'm bloody annoyed. They are very quick to chase up their money when I'm slightly late.
Should I ask for some refund or credit?
Gay Marriage Apr 18, 13, 4:39 a.m.
In light of the events in NZ, can I just ask, why is this even an issue in the 21st century? Surely if people want to get married, just let them bloody do it and get on with things. There are far more important things that need the attention of our politicians than gay marriage.
One thing that really annoys me is religious zealots who proclaim it is wrong...that marriage must only be between a man and a woman. What the hell has religion got to do with marriage anyway? Why aren't these people campaigning against atheist marriages?
jQuery Product Carousel Apr 17, 13, 10:20 p.m.
I'm looking for a product Carousel that works in a similar way to the Yellowtail website - www.yellowtailwine.com with the wine bottles. If anyone knows of any off the shelf scripts, that would be great.
TinyMCE / CK alternatives Apr 10, 13, 1:52 a.m.
I haven't looked around for a while. Our current CMS uses TinyMCE - it's OK as a CMS WYSIWYG content editor.
Anyone know of any new fresh alternatives that handle CSS and images/files etc?
Flat Icons for CMS Apr 2, 13, 4:38 p.m.
Have had a bit of a hunt for some nice looking flat icons for use with reskinning a CMS. Have found a few but interested if there are any hidden gems out there.
Responsive CMS Mar 27, 13, 7:44 p.m.
We've got a custom built CMS that has been rolled out to about 20 clients. We're in the process of a rebuild at the moment...a couple of clients have asked about a responsive layout for the CMS.
Tossing up at the moment whether to do this...is it necessary for a CMS to be responsive given it's a fairly small installed base? Overkill or a nice feature to promote?
Dropdown Menus - CSS/JS Mar 16, 13, 5:50 p.m.
Any good templates floating around? Have seen a few but a lot of average ones...and I'm too unskilled to develop my own!
Chrome BG image scroll bug? Feb 11, 13, 3:13 p.m.
I've got a page with a background image, with a repeat-x. All looks fine when you open the page. Snippet below.
WHen you scroll the page, the position of the BG image seems to shift by a single pixel - causes a line to appear where I don't want.
You can see there's now a line above the photo...it's actually part of the BG image.
Is this a known bug or is it something I am doing? This doesn't happen in FF, IE. or Safari.
Annoyance of the Day Feb 3, 13, 8:38 p.m.
The mind boggles how anyone could consider something like this as a sport. Wow...you shot a giraffe. They must be a tough one to target.
People like this make me sick...
Show LinkedIn feed on website Dec 18, 12, 10 p.m.
I've been hunting around for a quick and easy way to display a LinkedIn feed on a website in much the same way lots do with Facebook and Twitter.
I've found the jQuery Socialist Social media plugin...seems OK but anyone know or recommend any others?
Dev Question Nov 27, 12, 1:13 p.m.
A client of mine has made a request. They want a page that calculates some results and then spits the results out in a couple of graphs.
So there will be 3 or 4 sliders where you can change the data input - then based on these, some results are spat out. 1 number, one bar graph and one line graph.
Problem is, the client wants these calculations and graphs to change in real time without clicking a button and going to another page. So if you move the slider, the graphs and numbers will change dynamically.
The calcs themselves are quite straightforward but not sure where to direct this one.
Any tips on the best method/framework to attack something like this?
Movie Special FX Oct 26, 12, 3:09 a.m.
I remember a while back someone posted a Youtube or Vimeo movie from one of the movie production houses...like a showereel. It showed scenes being filmed...and split screens with CGI bits added in to show how it's done.
Pretty vague I know but if anyone knows what I'm talking about that would be great. Just looking for a link.
Facebook asswipes Sep 30, 12, 8:52 p.m.
A young woman was murdered here in Melbourne last week. Extremely tragic...she was randomly abducted from a busy street (albeit late at night), brutally raped, murdered and her body buried in the country. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2012-…
There have been a bunch of Facebook pages setup and since this guy's arrest, so much is being posted about him and his past behaviour. It's turned into a pretty vile hatred page.
In Australia, information like this can severely compromise chances of getting a fair trial so the Police have contacted Facebook to ask them to take down this one particular page.
Facebook have refused.
It fucking shits me that they think they are above local laws and cling to their 'free speech' mantra. Sometimes the public good overrides their little social media fantasy.
I reckon the cops should post some photos of women breastfeeding and Facebook would tear it down in a flash.
WTF Univers -> Typekit Jul 16, 12, 2:10 a.m.
Anyone have any recommendations for an alternative to Univers for Typekit?
Muchos gracia in advance
Karma Jun 13, 12, 11:02 p.m.
Just had to pass on this story from a guy I know.
"We're in the process of renovating, and in the spirit of trying to do the right thing we discussed our plans with the neighbours. One had no problems, the other carried on like a real dickhead (for no reason, there's no impact on him or his privacy). Just got the survey back, and have discovered that the fence between us and the dickhead is about half a metre too far on our side, and he's built a deck and some stairs hard up against it.
Looking forward to the next conversation I have with him..."
Web font combinations Apr 18, 12, 3:13 a.m.
Any sites that showcase good web font combinations? ie Headers and copy. Especially using Typekit etc?
Apple Style Slider Mar 23, 12, 3:24 a.m.
Anyone have any good examples of an Apple styled slider, similar to this - http://jqueryfordesigners.com/sl…
I thinks that's an older version of what Apple used to have on their site. I like what they have now at http://www.apple.com/mac/ - if any examples of something like this, even better!
Must be jQuery BTW.
