About a week ago I bought a VPS to host a VPN on it so that my classmates could play games in class. It's now gotten very popular and I grew tired of passing around my flash drive to distribute certificates so I decided to add a new command to my Slack bot: !vpntoken <CertName> [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/Q0eyetE.png[/IMG] [t]http://i.imgur.com/Hjq0fMx.png[/t] Pressing Redeem generates a .ovpn file that includes all your credentials and downloads it to your computer. Each token can only be used one time and expire within 15 minutes.
Talking of busting firewalls. I'm staying in student accommodation and the firewall has this annoying 'feature' where it intercepts HTTP downloads and downloads them itself then takes years scanning them. HTTPS downloads aren't affected. I made a Rails/Angular app that can download a file on my VPS'es end and then return a nice HTTPS message. Still need to fix percentages but other than that works great! It's all asynchronous with delayed_jobs and uses UUIDs to securely organize files downloaded. Theoretically you could plop it on something like Heroku as well if you wanted. [vid]https://f.benbristow.co.uk/suxckq.webm[/vid] Open source! [URL]https://github.com/benbristow/bucket[/URL]
Nice work dude! Why do you think your School does that? My school blocks traffic to torrent trackers, so maybe it's scanning for torrent files?

That's what I meant by school: university. My College blocks torrent traffic. The guest wifi blocks steam

Just finished this photo portfolio website for my friend (notlabbet here on FP) for my intro web publishing final project. All hand coded, pretty happy with the outcome! Was a very fun project. [url]http://webhawks.org/~dm60dageni6933/jacobphoto/index.html[/url]

Also don't do your GitHub if you don't have any activity or public repositories. I wouldn't place your Skype there either, place either a telephone number or your professional email.

Not showing any of your work is [I]really[/I] going to hurt the chance that you'll get hired. If I was given a link to a developer's website and it had no work samples I'd likely leave immediately. If you've got projects you've worked on already, put them up! If you don't, do some side projects and put those up. Make sure to talk about the problem you were solving and how you solved it with each project. People hire developers to solve problems, so show people that's what you do. I'd also add an email address and maybe a phone number. I've never had a prospective client contact me via anything other than email or phone initially.

I'm hosting a game server for some friends and I bought a domain so they don't have to remember an IP address. There's an additional benefit that now I can have a bit more of a personalized (i.e. not professional) website. So I made this [URL]http://prtcl.space/[/URL] The string at the bottom is generated by executing a static DLL via a WCF service in an Ajax request. :v:
I've come to terms with the fact I am awful at web design, I am however pretty decent with back-ends. If anyone fancies teaming up to make some cool shit, pm me.
Why not just try to improve your design ability?
Been working on a new forum. Any tips on how I could make it better? [url]http://theflawless.net/index.php[/url]

Working on a site for my brother's business. Currently it is fully working with animations and javascript. Sidebar is fully CSS3 with animations and so far it works even on mobile inclusive iOS. The only device group I could not test was Windows phone, but I take it if it works in Internet Explorer and Edge it might work on these devices as well. In retrospect, I should have used a framework like bootstrap.

How, no idea.[/QUOTE] I think that the border radius on the main image is far too high, try something smaller like ~3px - the border is also a little too dark, so try to lighten that up a little. Likewise with the image picker at the bottom too. The sidebar is almost perfect I think, however the shadow seems a little too harsh and the dividers between each item might be better if they were a lighter red than the background instead of white. [editline]16th December 2015[/editline] Another thing, try making the dropdown arrow in the sidebar a little smaller.

How, no idea.[/QUOTE] This is pretty bias but these are the things I think you should change. - When hovering over a navigation item, as the background is light, change the text to something dark. - Don't have a border radius on the main content. - Put the footer in the navigation bar, it's only small and helps the website look less like you're viewing it through a window. - Remove the margin between each of the slideshow images. - Only use a maximum of 6px border radius on any of your elements. - Use text-align: justify for the text. - To remove that top border on your first navigation item use li:first-child{ border-top: none; } I'd also change the color scheme to something smoother, assuming they're colors you chose and not logo related ones. As I said I'm very picky about how I like things but give some of these a go and see if you like them too :p Good luck :D Edit: Also if you want to keep the margin between the slideshow images, consider using li:last-child{ margin-right: 0; } to get it to sit flush with the edge of the container :)
Thanks for the suggestions, I really appreciate that. Most suggestions are small, subtle changes, but they do make a good difference. The colour theme, however, is here to stay. Those are the logo's colours. As in Orange, red, dark red. It fits since it is a business about fireplaces. [t]http://diwako.net/snaps/2015-12-16_13-48-27.jpg[/t]
-snip- That's something similar I made a while ago, sorry for breaking your neck and the aidsy phone picture quality, I'm at college and apparently they think image hosts are satanic. Edit: It makes my eyes bleed, fuck that.
