MS-Access Report not printing

Reports, Print and Load() Event

I wrote many forms and in general everything works just fine.

In this case, I wanted to enter the data with a function so I could properly format several of the fields (especially the billing and shipping addresses.) That was done on the Load() event. That function working great when looking at the report from within MS-Access (on screen report). However, when directly sending the report to the printer, it was not working well at all.

SeaMonkey 2.0

I guess I liked Netscape just way too much... I used Mozilla after Netscape went down and bust, then I continued with SeaMonkey 1.x and now I just finished installing SeaMonkey 2.0.

There are features in this system that are just better than in FireFox. However, SeaMonkey 2.0 is a re-sync. with FireFox 3.x. In other words, this is very similar to FireFox, with the correct display features of the HTML code. But it keeps the menu, preferences and look in general of SeaMonkey. (although the fonts have changed... I'll have to get used to those!?)

Moving a website from one server to another

Moving a website to a new server

Now and again, you have to move a website from one server to another.

There are good and bad things about that, the main problem is with dynamic websites. Why is that? Simple: a dynamic website expects to access a database and if you hit the wrong server, that will go bad.

What's the best solution?

1. Install your website on the new server, make sure it loads okay (you may want to use a test sub-domain name to make sure, although that's not a rock solid proof since some things may use a fully qualified URL)

2. Change the IP address in your ...

Changes to a Drupal theme & ThemeKey

I use Drupal for most of my sites. I use it in many different ways and it has been working real good for me.

On one of the sites, I use the ThemeKey module to select a different theme once you are logged in. This means, when I want to switch themes, that one theme selected for logged in users sticks, whether you disable it or not, it remains selected by the system.

And?

Well... one thing sticks from themes, their .info file. You just cannot refresh the cache properly unless you disable the theme, then re-enable it. (By the way, when disabled, don't go to the Blocks administration screen ...

My title, test #7

Hmmm... Okay... so Facebook has a latency, but ping.fm does not seem to take anything in account!?

I'm wondering whether ping.fm checks the PTR (whatever that is, hey?!) and if incorrect, refuses to forward the post. That would make sense since the PTR is 99% of the time wrong when spammers send emails.

Well! Today it worked 8-) After more than 7 tests because I did not always increment that number, but still. That's good. I'm moving forward. More soon!

This is the title of your node: [].

Twittering without being in Twitter!

I was wondering whether I could twitter without having to add my posts to twitter each time...

That works, of course, but it is time consuming.

The website I'm using runs on Drupal and it includes a Twitter module. And that module will automatically twit my posts titles to twitter. There you go!

This message is a test to see whether that works...

Twitter and emails

Today, I finally registered with Twitter. I'll be looking into a way to connect that to my blogs so each time I blog, I get a tweat eliminating the need for me to actually tweat for real.

Okay, that's fine, but guess what... they want me to verify my email address and it does not work.

reCATPCHA for Drupal

It took me a little time, but I finally search and found the reCAPTCHA.

The default CAPTCHA for Drupal looks awful. It is called Image and creates very ugly extremly hard to read images. So I always wanted to switch to reCAPTCHA that is not perfect but looks a lot better and has audio availbale.

So today I found it, it is here: http://drupal.org/project/recaptcha

Note that you still need the CAPTCHA system, it just adds one more option which is reCAPTCHA instead of Image. (at leat, that the way I use it.)
