Snap no more!

January 26, 2007

Apparently I am not the only one to think that "Snap" is one of the most annoying trends in the web/blog-sphere these days! When I mouse over a link I almost always am doing it to either 1) click on it or 2) see where it is pointing to in the status bar. When that window pops up it always grabs my a... [More]

What on Earth?

January 26, 2007

I was just browsing some spots on Google Maps and noticed some pretty strange looking water! Anyone have any ideas? Is it just in some frozen state? Is there a nuclear power plant nearby?

Jeff Atwood posted up a C# implementation of Identicons the other day. While I do not see them being all that useful, they are pretty neat. I whipped up a little [csl] Add-on that can display an Identicon. The code is more or less right from Jeff; I modified image caching to use [cs] cach... [More]

A couple of members on the Community Server forums wanted a way to block new members based on known SPAM domains. This sounded like a great idea for a CSModule. I looked at the list of events and saw that there is an event fired off before and after a user is created! Great! The PostUserUpdate ... [More]

Defrag your server

January 17, 2007

It seems that my fancy dancy server needs to run defrag every couple days. The site is running a well visited site (and some other not so visited sites) and is creating 300MB Log Files from IIS, as well as user uploaded files, etc... All of this is really fragmenting my nice and speedy data drive (a... [More]

Drivers on a Floppy?

January 15, 2007

A little rant here... I purchased a Zonet GigE NIC (ZEN3301E) card a couple months back and finally got around to installing it. Installing a NIC shouldn't be too difficult, right? I threw it in, powered up the PC (actually, my backup web server) and let Windows (Server 2000) configure it. Win... [More]

DVR Rant

January 10, 2007

  I just want to rant a little about Cablevision's IO HD DVR. The thing sucks! Sure, DVR's are great; when they work! I have been really busy every night working on the house and last night I quit early and wanted to catch up on last Thursday's episodes of "My Name is Earl" and "The Office". G... [More]

I am posting this just as a teaser, and to force myself to keep to my word... I have other CS Add-Ons that I will try to release when I get time to package them up. I wrote a few good ones about 6 months ago and have yet to release them. My favorite of the bunch is a "Site Supporter Add-On!" The Si... [More]

  "Rocket City Web" of the Community Server forums asked if it is possible to limit top posting members to a certain forum. At first, I had though the member points system would be perfect for this. However, Member Points is an add-on and not available for the "Personal Edition" of C... [More]

I am running a Linksys NSLU2 with the uNSLUng firmware with TwonkyVision Media Server installed.  Attached to my NSLU is a standard external 300GB USB drive that holds my MP3s, movies, pictures, etc... On the home theater side of the equation I have the D-Link DSM-520. I must sa... [More]
