So where is the background?

I’ve just run into one of jQuery’s thornier issues. While creating a map viewer for the S:GTC I found my code worked in FireFox and Chrome perfectly but refused to budge in IE7. Some of you may know that the map in Space currently only works correctly in IE6 – not good when most of […]

jQuery for Dummies

Published by . Filed under Programming, Web. Total of no comments in the discussion.

In an attempt to create cross-browser support for S:GTC I thought that learning jQuery would help in making the map work in more than IE6. So instead of getting frustrated at the abysmal PHP code I have to work with I decided to sit down with jQuery and de-stress. Or so I thought. I did […]

After reCaptcha was installed this dropped to 2 per week. Recently however it shot up. I got 4 yesterday, and this morning I woke […]

…but the overwhelming amount of blog-spam I have to wade through on a daily basis makes me almost lose the will to live. I’ve got myself a captcha system for WordPress and will try and get round to installing it sometime soon. UPDATE: I am now running it – spammers meat your death (ho ho […]
