The latest edition of International PHP Magazine has been released. This time I showcased this extremely cool site called “Netdisaster.com” - this guy does some hilarious things with websites, all with PHP. It’s pretty amazing. Go ruin some competitors’ sites and have fun.
First it was Ramsey, now it’s Shiflett. Unfortunately these poor souls don’t realize the adverse effect linking to my blog will have on the overall quality of their own. Sigh. Someday they’ll learn , as a few others have.
So it was my task to send out our email newsletter for giftsforengineers.com - we had a bunch of things to let our customers know about (50 new items, upcoming sales, gift certificates, that sort of thing). Usually I shy away from flashy emails as many of our subscribers opt for the “text-only” version.
So basically this was a rich-text format, no biggie. This time when the emails went out, some people got 5 copies of the email and some didn’t get it at all. (Nice and professional, huh?). I’m still trying to discern what might have caused this, and I’m wondering if it has something to do with HTML vs. text-only versions when the customer subscribed. We’ve sent these out in the past without incident but this time was squirrely for some reason. If you have any ideas, let me know!
So I’m messing around with our camcorder (no, it’s not what you think– we don’t shoot those types of movies)… and I realize no one’s ever downloaded the still shots we’ve been collecting for a while. Sure enough, I pop that baby in the card reader and voila! I see pics going back to Christmas 2004. Most are blurry and not very well-lit, but I was able to post some of them to our photo album. If you’ve got nothing better to do and you want to see some photos of our family, feel free at http://www.naramore.net/photos.
