Tito's second to last comment prevails then. Look forward for one of those gorgeous French girls. With hairy armpits :P

Also, maybe you'll tour around someday. It's not too far from Marseille, you should check that out. Anywhere along the Mediterranean coast is just beautiful.

Never miss a chance to travel abroad. Even if you expect it to be boring, it's most likely it won't be. Seeing a new place, new geography, new weather, new everything... maybe you'll even feel like in some movie (of course, if you stay home and bring your girl for the week, it could also be like a French movie without all the travel :P )

No, wait... I think I made a mistake. It was in the Map Vault then. Sorry, disregard my comment.

Thanks, I might do that too :)

I can think of a few examples that use databases but no MVC - such as the PHPBB forum pack. It works well but I have never looked at the back end.

Do you know where could I learn more about a MVC framework? I've never used one.

OH MY! THERE'S NO DATABASE BEHIND THIS?! runs out the door flailing arms

There is a plan to include a new module in the future, to track employees schedules, but the database part of it was the first thing I thought of.

I can offer you to help with the database design for TWHL4 if you need a hand. It seems to be something I enjoy.

It's not much of a dynamic site, as a matter of fact, the only part that uses PHP is a contact form and a clients page. Neither uses any database components. The clients page is the one referred to in the original post here; you enter a code the company gives to you, and it displays images from a folder with the name of the code you entered.

Ok, I shall give that a try.

Also I'm starting to think he didn't say die(); but (grabbing sword) DIE!!!!!!!!!!

Please. As we all know, there are plenty of experts on every field, and many more dumbasses that don't know shit about what they do, yet they earn large sums for doing it [wrong]. I wouldn't know what kind are you, and I don't want to venture saying something I shouldn't, but simply telling us what you are earning or what are your project budgets doesn't tell us anything about the quality of your work either.

Going back to the original topic, I'm not sure if potatis' solution would work, as what I need is a conditional redirect, and as far as I know, header statements cannot have any other statements (including if) before them.

And regarding Penguinboy's solution, I don't mind using a new technology but for now I'd prefer a simpler solution (especially because I only need this conditional redirect right now, maybe I'll use that in future projects)

So how do you think I should use die()?

@Darkie: No, it's uncompilable. It'd have to be rebuilt from scratch.

@kdunivan: Yeah, that's the reason it takes me so long to reach completion on any map now. However, even then I was aware of the invalid brushes. I just shrugged and thought, what harm can a couple of bad brushes do? What I'm sure of is that there are no leaks, because the skybox is well sealed :P

And my first map was a 128x128x128 room with some prefabs piled up in a corner. It was AWESOME. It was ORGASMIC.
Commented 9 years ago2010-01-28 01:49:57 UTC in vault item: de_dracula - bad map Comment #17914
Well sure, go ahead if you like. It'd be cool to see it put to use, anywhere. I do wonder what will you do with it after you look at it :P
Commented 9 years ago2010-01-28 00:32:33 UTC in vault item: Cs_Canbunk Comment #17912
Aaaaa! I'm intrigued! Still doesn't work... why has it been deleted from TWHL?

The first one... a test map by Penguinboy perhaps?
Commented 9 years ago2010-01-27 17:50:56 UTC in journal: #6352 Comment #61804
Yeah that exactly! Cool, thanks PB! :D

What a simple solution. I wonder how it didn't occur to me.

Here PB. Any ideas or suggestions will be welcome. http://pastebin.com/m7d3f07de

Thanks for that potatis. In that case what I want is position:absolute. The test page was so short I didn't have to scroll it, hence I didn't notice the difference.

Edit: Here's what I want.

"And this mod is HARD. HARD on your EYES. You know. This is probably what they call laziness."

What do you mean hard on my eyes? Is it bad texture choices? Bad lighting? Too much contrast? There sure is no HDR there. Bad mapping? Or just because the site is in French?

Also, what do I see in that screenshot? Looks like Aztec ruins or something like that. That's not very Half-Lifey. But, I will check it out.

Surely that case had to come up at some Microsoft staff meeting... at some point, someone has to wonder what to do if the user has no password.

Oh well, M$. Not surprising it doesn't work as intended.

I'm with Jeff. I once came across Goatse (in a completely unrelated site, I always assumed it to be some sort of prank by the server admin) and my life was never the same.
Commented 9 years ago2010-01-25 22:04:52 UTC in journal: #6348 Comment #61797
I found out that it returns the error for every scheduled task. It complains about incomplete user data, that I haven't entered my password. Because I don't have one.

@Naserve: Thanks, gonna check that out.
@Jeff: Because I know in advance I won't be around at the time I want it to shut down?

Maybe triangular could do the trick too. I think I had built a triangle wave generator with a 555 in my early years of school. A friend asked to borrow it to do something similar, and never returned it. At this point, almost a decade later, I assume my notes on it lost, and he moved far, far away where I can't demand my circuit board back. Where was I going? Right, I don't think I'll be able to reproduce the setup just from memory.

A sine wave is the way I'd imagine any implementation of the effect. Of course, I might be wrong, as I don't even have a tremolo pedal to check.

What do you use to draw the circuits?

Heh. I used a computer power supply 80mm fan in hot summer days a couple of years ago. Then I turned the voltage dial on my custom-made power supply too far, and something burned out in it. I'm on the look for a new one. The 20" standing fan should do well meanwhile.

I graduated from secondary school as an Electronics Technician (which I explain would be sort of a half-Engineer to those who ask me what that is) Although I'm more specialised in digital environments.

I feel I have to ask you, why exactly a toggling op-amp, wouldn't you prefer it powered more like a sine wave? At least that's what I'd expect from a tremolo effect-er.

"If George Bush would still have been President, Hugo Chavez would not have said that, because he knows he would have been a dead man the next day."

That.

Also, if he still were the president, and it happened in the middle East, I might have believed Mr. Chavez. And built myself a large underground bunker because the world is ready to come to an end.

"a wide variety of themes are represented, as well mapping skill: ranging from rank beginner to elite."
...also from normal mapper to ridiculously slow. Like some I can't remember.

Try not to take any roads that have steep hills. Stay home and lock the doors if you live in San Francisco.

A couple o nights ago I had a dream in which I was walking through a progression of different rooms, each one of them different from the others, all of them completely unrelated except for connecting hallways. And I ended up in a disco.

Why aren't your RAM sticks a green board with black IC's on top? I've never seen sticks like those.

Good camera! I was considering getting myself a new one and I still haven't decided between the Nikon D5000 and the Canon 500D (aka Rebel T1i). Although after finding out the Rebel series are so incredibly small (as in, uncomfortable to hold for anyone except a 6 year old), I'm fearing I might have to raise the bet to a 50D.

Ah, XHTML. I still don't know what that is exactly. I guess I should look it up someday, it might be of use.

Don't be afraid of learning new languages Striker. You'll find out it's not that difficult.

For a change here, Adobe Reader doesn't crash my Firefox. It just makes it terribly unresponsive while it loads, then only downloads pdf's by half, then freezing when I scroll to a page that hasn't downloaded. After that, I have to manually kill its process as well as the Adobe Auto Updater's - which can't be disabled.

As for Photoshop, I'm with Tito. There haven't been any significant additions in quite a while (other than bugfixes I suppose). I once downloaded "normal" Photoshop AND Photoshop Extended and I haven't been able to see a difference (besides price? I didn't pay for either anyway).

But back to Brendanmint's original post: Just download some keygen if they don't give a useful reply. You already paid for that crap.

That's nice of skals. But I'm sure you posted this journal just to show off that .gif. I saw through your intent of masking it with a CSS topic.
