Blinking question mark on OS X Boot? Don’t panic just yet.

My MacBook Pro has been acting up again lately. Crashes, stalls, and overall wacky goodness. Yesterday I pulled it out of my bag after getting home and although I had put it to sleep, and confirmed that it was asleep before packing it away, it had crashed on the way home. When I restarted it […]

Search and replace directly within MySQL.

MySQL always amazes me with the breadth of functionality that it has. Too often we just use it to push and pull information from the database. So when I hit an occasion where I can so in a single SQL statement that would require a time consuming PHP I get excited.

Javascript table row highlighting. Then and Now.

Preparing for fully compliant XHTML

Well, I’m playing around with delivering actual xml content for xml aware browsers, or maybe I should say I’m playing around with delivering xml content to everybody but IE, and am realizing how much I don’t know about xhtml. So much changes in document structure it will take a while to find the right balance […]
