  1. I do freelance Web Design / Development. I mostly use Inkscape for design, and GIMP for post processing.
  2. I'm not arguing with anyone, but I read the mailing lists. People point out problems that no one noticed before, all the time. The back-end of GIMP (GEGL) has support for 32 bits per channel, and there is a patch in the works to support white balance on high bit depth images. Its a matter of not having enough developers. I use GIMP professionally, it can produce professional results. I hope people would spend their time constructively, and make GIMP better instead of bashing it constantly.
  3. First of all GIMP is an open source project. If you don't like it -- if you find it frustrating to use, let developers know. They're actively trying to make it a better program. Second, you might want to check out Inkscape, Or if you want to get your web 2.0 on, try Pixlr.
  4. I do a bit of Urban Exploration. So, having rope and other tools is helpful in certain situations. The spray paint is for the stencils, in case I need to create "promotional materials" while I'm out.
  5. It usually changes depending where I'm going, but the staples are: Macbook Canon Rebel XT iPod touch rope leather work gloves small bolt cutters spray paint stencils
  6. Podcasts are RSS feeds. Just need to find the url in itunes. This might help
  7. I think you mean Audacious, Audacity is the audio editor. I prefer Banshee for music and VLC for video. XMMS is available, you need to add the Universe repos (under software sources) then "sudo apt-get install xmms2".

  9. First things first anti-virus and firewall software are already useless. Software that protects against other software doesn't work. Next, just because the source is released doesn't mean its less secure. Open Source software tends to be more secure. Security through obscurity is no security at all.
  10. The way most websites are written is that only a unique ID is stored in the cookie, and all data regarding the session is stored on the server. Depending how that ID is generated it could lead to session hijacking. PHP's default session ID are usually prone to hijacking because it doesn't automatically check the ID for validity. So, it really depends on how the site was written.
  11. uxtheme multi-patcher for windows. Compiz-Fusion for linux, but if your using Ubuntu install "compizconfig-settings-manager" and "emerald" for full control.
  12. I was working on this for the evil server logo contest, but it would also make a great t-shirt. :D
  13. So, I've been working on the concept of JavaScript allowing "non-traditional" variable names. I wrote about it in my blog yesterday, and I was wondering if you guys/gals could help me compile a list of browsers that support it. So far I've tried it in Opera and Firefox, which neither fully support them. The test script is here. If you could, post the last three lines along with the Browser, Version, and OS. Also, (so this isn't just big fat plug for my blog) what could be done with non-traditional variables? Well, besides making the ugliest code ever. :P EDIT: I should probably warn you that the script takes a long time to execute. It tests almost 14,000 characters. UPDATE: I got my VM up and running again, so I've tested Firefox, Opera, Chrome and IE under windows.
  14. unfortunately php isn't very good with utf-8 (or utf-16, utf-24, or utf-32 for that matter ;)) some functions are unicode aware but not all. this page seems to be a good resource on how to make php and mysql not puke when they encounter multi-byte characters.
  15. Thats odd, I've never seen that happen. It appears that the bar is collapsing, which happens when an element is empty or the contents has taken out of the document flow by using "position: absolute". The div's could be causing firefox to render in quirks mode, which is well... quirky. And when you "saved the source" was it the just the html or the css too?
  16. I browsers prevent that type of access, unless the page in the frame is from the same domain as the page containing it. Its a XSS vulnerability. you could have a form like: &lt;form action="cleanMe.php" method="get"&gt; &lt;input type="text" id="url" name="url" /&gt; &lt;input type="submit" /&gt; &lt;/form&gt; and cleanMe.php could look like: &lt;?php $page = file_get_contents($_GET['url']); //process $page echo $page; ?&gt; when you process $page you would then rewrite all the links as cleanMe.php?url=<url>
  17. To answer the original question, Xampp is great, but you could try Simple Server from analogX not nearly as powerful as xampp but its a great quick server.
  18. most wifi routers have mac address spoofing built in, its usually called mac address cloning heres a tutorial for exactly what your looking for http://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,717381 assuming your using a linksys router, but most routers have those features too.
  19. Hmmm... I didn't know about DeviceIoControl(). I'm assuming mciSendString() is just a wrapper for it and a few other functions. Who needs a loop anyway? All you have to do is turn on auto eject. which will continuously eject the tray even after the program closes. In the MSDN blog post i linked to earlier it cleverly disguises the program as a web accelerator, while secretly ejects the cd tray at random intervals.
  20. sometimes you need to have a little fun... unless you're the one trying to stop the cd drive from opening and closing, but there is always revenge. :twisted:
  21. This can be done under linux using the eject command $ eject -a on cdrom you could also write a similar program under windows using mciSendString() in winmm.dll. http://blogs.msdn.com/coding4fun/archive/2.../01/918646.aspx
  22. application/xhtml+xml image/png I can't believe those aren't listed... Nevermind, that explains it.
  23. You can do that using beryl under linux(I think its windows key + scroll wheel), and maybe use VNC or a VM for windows, as previously suggested. EDIT: need to learn to spell.
  24. I have a felling Sparda is right, don't trust anything with a flashing "Free Download." The software appears to be (poorly) rebranded warez, For instance "Total Video Player" is Winamp with the default skin modified to say "Total Video Pro". Your best off, finding who really makes that software and using that version.
  25. First you need to make sure you have hosting (not just a domain*) then get the ftp info (username, pass, url, etc) in windows you can use explorer, and just paste the url into the address bar, enter credentials, and just copy to it. and what do you mean by a template? Is it just a page that looks like what you want your site to look like? * no, I don't think your stupid. It just a common thing I deal with all the time.
