  1. I just got my computer going (hard drive crash - I had no computer for a couple of weeks while I was sorting out the mess.) and I've been alerted to this thread. I don't know if I can post as I'm not a member anymore, but I'll give it a go:Yeah, I've left TC, and don't particularly wish to go into the reasons why. Thanks for the concern and the emails, I'm as well as I've ever been. I had some fun, and I wish you guys all the best.Now move along, nothing to see here...
  2. Hmm, I think you might be right on that one, it's one I don't think I bothered to check - at that stage I was too preoccupied chasing down the obscure ones I think. Anyway, bit of fun, I enjoyed it...
  3. I'm such a smart *******... [] (Mind you, I did lose a bit of hair in the process, although that's probably a good thing...(!))
  4. For anyone that's stuck and needs a clue - the entries are all in alphabetical order... []
  5. As already mentioned in another thread: - Your browser type and version number (Safari 1.3.2 v312.5) - Your operating system version (Panther 10.3.9) - a statement to say if it worked as described above ( It works for me. )
  6. Another little glitchette to report: If I edit my member details, after the box art checkbox, we get the lovely ASP error: "ADODB.Recordset error '800a0bcd' Either BOF or EOF is True, or the current record has been deleted. Requested operation requires a current record. /member_edit.asp, line 251" ...and as the save button or anything else aren't drawn, it's impossible to update your own details. Cheers,
  7. The two flipmenus in that form work for me BTW - Safari 1.03, OSX 10.3.9. I'd like to try Firefox, but every version I've ever installed has never worked, so I stick with Safari which by and large I'm happy with...
  8. Chris, regarding recovery: In recovery.asp, the links are badly fomatted: from the view source: img6496_01012005171756_1.jpg .. etc Can you please correctly format the picture link with quotes around the href and target parameters, please? - it causes problems here with downloading the pictures. ie Edit: okay, can't show the code as the forum interprets it as html, but you should get the idea. Cheers,
  9. Unfortunately most of my movies are offline once more. I spent many hours moving things around last month so all my movies were online, but the TC crash has reverted everything back to as it was. To be honest I can't really face tracking everything down and relinking them all - I might just pull everything down, rather than have everything sitting up there broken. That'll free up 500megs of webspace as well... [] Fun fun fun!
  10. "Scoobesque" - I like it! Anyone fancy doing a quick "Bash report" for those of us who didn't attend..?
  11. Hmm, I've not used that, I'm always a little wary of such stuff - at least if I have the text data I know I can *always* restore if need be. I've been burned by Microsoft too many times to trust thirdy-party binary formats, although mySQL should be pretty robust. Weird about the holes in data though *shrugs*...
  12. What DBMS are you using? Is it Microsoft proprietry like SQL Server, or an open SQL one like mySQL? SQL Server backups/restores are a pain, but you can restore old backups into new databases, and then extract what you want from that. From memory (it's been a while!), you restore the last complete backup into a new DB, and then perform incremental restores until you get to the most recent data). If they are just SQL backups, then as long as you have the backup files it shouldn't be difficult to get back the data you need. You are wise not to close your options and just restore an old backup and just losing forever the rest of the data. If you still have that data, it will be possible to restore it, although depending on the state of the DB it might be a tricky process. If you need a sounding board or some help, drop me a line. And automated daily backups for a large site are essential, as is checking that restores work ok, you dufus! []
  13. There's an element of truth in most jokes... [] So here's one for ya: Donald Rumsfeld is giving the president his daily briefing. He concludes by saying: "Yesterday, 3 Brazilian soldiers were killed." "OH NO!" the President exclaims. "That's terrible!" His staff sits stunned at this display of emotion, nervously watching as the President sits, head in hands. Finally, the President looks up and asks, "How many is a brazillion?"
