  1. Zarel added a post in a topic: How do I install Filecharger into my website   

    Instructions are provided in readme.txt .

    Reproduced below:



    Installation: \---------------------------------- 1. If you can unzip files online (i.e. with CPanel): Send fileman.zip to the directory of your webserver you want it to be, then extract it. Otherwise: Send the contents of fileman.zip to the directory of your webserver you want it to be. Note: Sending readme.txt or devdoc.txt is optional. 2. Navigate to the directory you installed it in (example.com/fileman/) 3. Follow the on-screen instructions.

    Creating or editing config.inc.php is usually a last resort for if the guided installer fails (or if you don't have FTP access to your server).

  2. Zarel added a post in a topic: Disable maximize button - Google Chrome   

    If you're going for a pop-up, it's usually easier to simulate a pop-up window, like Lightbox, than to try to control external windows.

    This is Lightbox: http://www.huddletogether.com/projects/lightbox2/
    Click on one of the images, to see the kind of pop-up I'm talking about.

    IE9 is good, but not great. It's on par with current browsers, but there's a lot of HTML5 stuff it doesn't support. Drag-and-drop uploading, for instance.

    This is exactly why we did it.

    Well, that, and "Novawave" sounds a bit better, and "novawave.ca" is shorter than "novatechnetwork.com"

    I used to play it a decent amount. Not nearly as much nowadays. My friends aren't playing it as much, and playing it alone isn't all that fun for me.

  6. Zarel added a post in a topic: Review Site Please!!!   

    Hmm. I see two backgrounds, an "inner" background and an "outer" background. I think the site would look a bit more compelling with a single background - it'd look more like a single cohesive website that way, while right now it looks a bit more like one website inside another website.

    As for the borders, I think pure white is a bit too bright for it. The most important part of your website should be the content (in this case, the text). That should be pure white. The other stuff would probably look better as grey.

    The sidebar menu doesn't look that much like a menu - it looks kind of like a list of text, at least until you move your mouse over it. I do like the mouseover effect, though.

    Those are my thoughts on design.

    The menu looks a bit long, as well. 16 items - that's a bit much to have in a flat list. Maybe categorize them, or merge them, or something?

  7. Zarel added a post in a topic: AT&T DSL Elite vs FIOS   

    Well, for me, I've found that DSL speeds are usually enough. Faster speeds are nice, but often not worth the price.

    On the other hand, bandwidth limits can cause problems. I once used a connection with a 15 GB/month limit - that was not enough for my day-to-day usage.

  8. Zarel added a post in a topic: Server down?   

    :( Oh, man, this is the first time we've slipped below 99.9% uptime in months . I've been around here since NovaHost started, so I'm being entirely honest when I say this is only the second time we've ever had downtime this long.

    Sorry, guys; won't happen again.

    I'm not sure if it's possible to add an exception for a cert with a domain conflict. That's pure man-in-the-middle-attack domain-spoofing right there, I wouldn't be surprised if some clients block it outright - most browsers, for instance, break out the solid red alerts for that instead of the normal yellow alerts they use for unrecognized certs.


    No, you would need one IP address ($3/mo) and one SSL cert (bring your own) for each domain.

    Well, we got IPB back when this board was more active, so our current activity doesn't really reflect the conditions in which we got IPB. We have a few projects in the works that should renew recruitment.

    In this thread, we post the earliest design we can find, and the latest design we've made, so we can see how much progress we've made! :D

    I've made earlier designs, but this is the earliest one that I still have a copy of up:
