[insert stream of vitriol] I had/have four domain names managed by my current host. I’ve cancelled two of them recently as they were just a bit of silly fun (if you want monkeybombing.com or galactictossmonkeys.com they will be available soon), the other two are for this site and scottishblogs.co.uk. I also use the same company…

(Great, now I’ve got that Sum 41 track in my head… hmm quite catchy…) Tuesday night is Louise’s ‘night out’ with our friend Susan. They go shopping, go to the cinema, or just veg out with facepacks and wine. I’m left at home (thankfully). I usually have a few items that I want to get…

PHP

Reading time: < 1 min

[geek speak ahoy!] Slowly ploughing my way through PHP tutorials, although I’d be a lot quicker if I actually followed them instead of scanning the page, and leaping off to edit the scripts I’ve created. So far I’ve got a database created, populated, and can read records from it, displaying them on the page. Next…

MySQL. How do you setup a new database? I know my host supports it, but that’s the limit of my knowledge. Rather than spend an evening aimlessly surfing I was kinda hoping someone out there would have some pointers/suggestions/offers of free help… Answers in the usual place please.

I’ve recently rebuilt my PC, whilst doing so I took some extra time to clear out duplicate and old files and I came across the archives for this site, well what passes for archives at any rate as I’m not the most forward thinking or organised person. Looking at those early attempts at HTML (via…

Me bad

Well it seems my ‘delving’ with PHP broke Blogger. Or something. I’d like to apologise to everyone for screwing up their publishing system. Except you lot on MT, and all the other systems that I can’t be bothered naming. Miniblog entries will be added throughout the afternoon, but other than that, I’m kinda busy. (And…

I’ll be mucking about with PHP tonight (my first ‘delve’… ohh what a great word, delvvveee, delve, DELVE!!, ddeeeeeeelve.. ahem where was I?) so the site may appear a bit wonky, hopefully not majorly so but I thought I’d best forewarn you, just in case you think it’s you that’s broken something. … delve ……
