  • [QUOTE=OrYgin;34454650]any particular font in mind to replace the current one ?[/QUOTE] Lobster and Helvetica Neue alternating by character for the entire page, bonus points if you use javascript to swap them every half second. I don't think this is really going for a professional look, more about fun, and I think that the font in use is alright for that, even if it is by itself a pretty bad font. I'd say thank the heavens for small blessings that it's not Comic Sans and call it a day, personally.

  • Kohana's docs are terrible. I cannot for the life of me figure out how validation errors work.
  • Made this funnel page: [url]http://stepdub.com/publish-dubstep[/url] My friend is working on the uploader script atm. I'm turning [url]http://stepdub.com[/url] into a dubstep publishing/promotion website, I also modified the theme on Stepdub, to reflect the new logo more.
  • I can't take a screenshot because I don't know how to linux, but are the first few pixels of the header text supposed to be cut off like that or is it just happening for me?

That image is pretty pointlessly huge also - don't do that with jpegs it's a lot more wasteful than a PNG. Why aren't you using a PNG?

Why aren't you using a PNG?[/QUOTE] Listen to him, pngs are great for representing very large adjacent areas of the same color. Also you could just have the text as a transparent png and center that over a black bg.
  • on the topic of that header, I think it should be a little smaller, takes up way too much space currently [editline]30th January 2012[/editline] not the actual text but just the padding above and below it

  • Alright I made this actionscript/flash visualizer for videos that i'll be publishing on Stepdub: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kovw5HFMrS8&hd=1[/media] As you can see, it's dynamic and reacts to the beat. Any improvements I can make on it? [b]Uploading a better test video[/b]
  • You've gotta watch this, best geek video I've seen in a long time. It highlights some quirks of Ruby and JavaScript while being hilarious at the same time: [url]https://www.destroyallsoftware.com/talks/wat[/url]
  • Alright here's a much better version of the dynamic flash visualizer I made, with an actual dubstep track that I also made. With dubstep it's alot more beat-aware and looks better. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RR0qlHlMwSc[/media] [b]HD THAT SHIT[/b]

  • Does anyone know why when using SimpleXML my page takes up to 21 seconds to finish loading? I'm trying to get the current state of Steam users using Steams profile XML and when I test it locally it takes a second or two to finish loading. When I upload it to my Directspace VPS I get a loading time of 20ish seconds, it's only this page however. I've never used XML before and I found a tutorial on some website and I've been using that (I'm probably doing it wrong). [PHP] <?php $source = "http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197996055158?xml=1"; $sitemap = new SimpleXMLElement($source,null,true); echo $sitemap->stateMessage; ?> [/PHP]
  • May be interesting to some of you lot here, but I've got a work placement at a comprehensive school as part of my degree, and the project they want me to undertake is to find ways to intergrate their custom VLE into day-to-day classroom activities, then implement them. I'm looking forward to starting it!
  • [QUOTE=zzlawlzz;34409147]he probably said that to make you feel better or something. I mean seriously... look at that thing.[/QUOTE] [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/5D2Co.png[/IMG] Yeah man i get ya. Just a heads up for outraged webproz~~ -was forced into the class b/c everything else was full -didnt know i was forced into the class until 2nd semester started -class is a joke, 100's errbody errday -i have no interest in a web design career (although with my excellent track record maybe i should consider it : ) )

It highlights some quirks of Ruby and JavaScript while being hilarious at the same time: [url]https://www.destroyallsoftware.com/talks/wat[/url][/QUOTE] Javascript may have its quirks but at least those quirks are well understood and documented in the specification. I'm quite proud that my JS interpreter handles those quirks correctly!

[/QUOTE] Well, I've used SimpleXML to parse API files before and it's not remarkably fast, results can vary depending on your VPS setup, file I/O speeds, net speeds and other VPS or hardware related problems. You might be better off storing the XML data in SQL and updating it with a cron job every so often, it would reduce page-load times for whoever is using your site and you can update it at whatever interval you want.
