Visual Basic Chapter 10.3

Visual Basic Chapter 10.3

Hey,

Well, what a day. Thought I’d post my VB Chapter 10.3 assignment.

Figured someone might take a look. Nothing really important or interesting. But hey, I’m just learning this stuff.

Of course to see in action you have to make the form yourself. And the database as well. ;)

So if you see any bugs or have any ideas, please comment.

Thanks and good night,

Will

When Spammers Attack

Attacked By Spammers – Disabled Comments :(

Hey,

Well, that was odd. Thanks to whoever reported the problem. Well, apparently some spammer thought it would be cool to try and hack my web site. Notice, I did not say hacker. Because he/she is clearly not, and was trying to “hack” my web site so she/he could post their spam. Which instead of being successful, he/she instead shutdown commenting all together.

I was using some custom code that disables comments if I believe I’m under attack. I had it set to disables commenting all together for 72 hours when this happens. Well, I forgot to make a disabled page. So instead of displaying an error you simply got a blank white page. lol Sorry about that. hehe I was tired.

Anyways I have corrected the problem. :p Oh and not using code any more since it obviously does not work as intended.

Well, see you tomorrow. Good night!

Need For Speed Most Wanted PC Demo Fix

Need For Speed Most Wanted PC Demo Fix

Hey,

For those who do not know, the Need For Speed Most Wanted PC Demo is out.

Download It Here

Well, if you are running Windows XP, then you will more than likely, encounter a major problem when trying to install the demo.

The demo installer will say that NFSMW requires DirectX 9.0c even though it is already installed.

Luckily, there is a simple fix. After downloading and running the demo installer simply run autrun.exe in Windows 2000 mode.

So, when you run the demo installer it simple extracts all the files to the directory specified. When it is done extracting, go into its directory and right click on autorun.exe and select properties. Then select the Compatibility tab and check “Run this program in compatibility mode for” and select Windows 2000 and click OK. Then run autorun.exe to successfully install NFSMW.

Well I hope this helps some of you out with getting this sweet demo installed.

Take Care,

Will
