  • For a week now I have had a warning when shutting down saying that there was yet another update to install on shutdown...

    I did not really check on it for that long, but today I decided to check the auto-update as I was running the computer. There was the installation ready to be run. So I clicked on the button to start the installation.

    After a moment, the installation process stopped with a really weird error:

    Error message: Code 13EC, it's an unknown error.

    It's funny that any programmer would create an error that the computer cannot figure out... Way beyond me.

    This being ...

  • Introduction

    Often, when you build a website, you want columns.

  • I've got those 3 button mice from SGI as I was working with Indy's and O2's. I also have keyboards. Those are real good quality!

    Yesterday, I tried to right click and somehow, nothing happened. At first I thought maybe it was X going banana, but trying again and restarting did not change anything. I reset my KVM too, just in case. Still nothing.

  • Today I played around with my feedback button (a button that sticks on the edges.)

    The one I had worked on manually was fixed on the edge just fine, even in Internet Explorer.

    Today, I felt like testing a few more things and thus tested with some HTML code. The code was very simple, a few paragraphs, one div with the feedback button, and a few more paragraphs. The style for the feedback button was in the <style> block in the header.

    It worked just find in SeaMonkey and I found something of interest! (see below) but the position of the feedback button was fixed.

    My Boring Story

    Microsoft Office is making progress... or... is that really progress?!

    I got a great little surprised when I met face to face with Access 2007 and all the menus were gone. I wasn't warned about that one! Not only are they gone, you MUST use little tiny icons in the place of menus so it takes you an awful long time to learn the icons, but not just that, YOU have to choose which icons will appear on your toolbar.

  • I have noticed that quite a few people were trying to create UDP communication and I thought that proposing my class could help them. This is very basic as it does not define anything such as the size of a packet or any protocol to ensure arrival of the packets. However, it can be useful if you want to send a signal from one process to another, which is exactly how I use this implementation.

    This code is part of the Snap! C++ implementation. It can be found in the corresponding SourceForge.net repository.

  • I spent hours today to find this one module: Rules.

    In most cases, you can set up a rule in Drupal with their Actions and Triggers and it will work just fine. The fact is that these options are extremely limited if you want any kind of condition on the Rule before triggering the action.

    The idea is very simple:

    1. Something happens

    2. Check whether it is of interest1

    3. Trigger the action

    I needed that functionality for a couple of websites because I wanted to get an event whenever someone created a new page, but not for any type of ...

    • 1. This part is what is missing in Drupal Core v6.x
  • Ada variables are complex objects. When developing a compiler, you must definitively take that in account. You have several sides to your variables: one you need to be able to handle dynamic variables since the compiler will have to be capable of doing all the operations on all the constant variables just as if you were executing your program and it has to handle all the tests necessary to ensure integrity.

    So... we need a library that can handle integers, a library to handle floating points, a library to handle arrays, etc.

  • Several times, you may have been creating views and wondered: how the heck could I add a link to my node Edit page, or if you are like me, my node Outline, Track, Convert pages on top of the Edit page.

    This is actually pretty easy.

    To your fields, add a Node: Nid then click the Add button at the bottom.

    In the setup of the field, select Rewrite the output of this field and enter the text of the link as it should appear (i.e. 'Edit' or 'Convert'.)

  • Today AddThis is down, big time! For hours...

    So to make my websites load faster (although I did not delete all the caches, which is a problem too?!) I removed the functionality. If you have Drupal, there is what I have done to leave the settings the same but still hide the AddThis button and thus get all the pages of all my websites to load fast.

    First we remove the link by returning an empty array:

    /**
     * Implementation of hook_link(). 
     */
    function addthis_link($type, $node=NULL, $teaser = FALSE) {
    return array(); // immediate return
      $links = array();
    
      if ($type ===  ...

  • dump

    The dump command, under a Unix system, is used to dump the entire file system to another device. By default, the dump output device is a tape device (/dev/tape). Now a day, however, it is often used with other devices such as another file system (from one hard drive to another.)

    Other systems use that same keyword. It is particularly the case of database systems. For instance, the PostgreSQL database has a pg_dump command.

    The opposite command is restore. That command is used to get the data from the output device and put it back on your hard drive.
