I just read a long ass post about why graphic artists shouldn't stretch type or slant a face. "no duh" as we used to say in school.
Ironic Sans has a fun quiz where you try to identify which font is Arial, and which one is Helvetica.
What a pain in the ass. Drupal updates look so slick when they work, but when they fail, it's a nightmare. I ended up reverting to a backup and doing it by the book (which seems to matter a lot), and lost a few posts. Oh well. They were mostly programming posts so the code's around somewhere, and probably slightly improved, and may end up on here again.
Recently, I saw an ad on Craigslist that described a job, and stated that they would not accept telecommuters, all work was on-site, and "independent contractor." This ad might have been illegal, because there are laws about what defines an independent contractor and what defines an employee. Small businesses that misclassify workers can get an unfriendly visit from the tax man.
This seems to happen a lot - and it took several searches and many pages of reading to find the solution. This page will try to even the odds a little more.
If Windows 7 seems much slower, try changing the theme. Click the Start Menu, then type "theme". The option to change the theme should appear. Click on it.
I was on the Ralphs website, and found some image URLs that looked like this:
A short list of things to make purchasing an SSL cert easier.
This is a rough watchdog script to restart apache on the local machine when the website gets slow. If a GET to the url fails, or takes longer than 60 seconds, the local web server is restarted.
