Custom T-shirt designs are more readily available than ever before. Long gone are the days where a person could only express their brand of individualism through a particular company or brand. After all, it is kind of hard to pull off wit using a design and/or phrase that someone else thought up for you. Now we have custom T-shirts, your …
I have been travelling so it took me a little while to write about Google Custom Search Business Edition. The name is a mouthful (sounds like the name of one of IBM’s products) but the price won’t give you indigestion—just $100 annually for up to 5,000 pages. So what should a Web site owner think about this offering?
WebmasterWorld has a nice thread going about 25 signals of crappy sites. Fribble starts the thread with the notion that we spend a lot of time looking for signals of quality. But it’s also useful to look at the inverse. It’s a pretty good list, and forum members chip in a few other good ideas.
Recently Bambi Fransisco asked Googler Peter Norvig about using wikis in search, in response to Wikia’s search threat.
Google has a new blog for the Google Custom Search Engine program. Always good to have more Google blogs. Get the feed.
Site publishers can use the Google Custom Search Engine to build the search engine of their dreams, drawing from specific sites and blogs, dressing it up to match the look and feel of the webmaster’s site, and making money with AdSense through its search results.
A lot of custom web site designers are really critical of commercial website templates. I have seen snide comments on Forums and Blogs along the lines of ‘This site has template written all over it’.
One of the many benefits of object-oriented programming is that it allows for reuse of logic. For example, classes can be created that contain a base level of functionality.
In a world where legacy languages often prevail, we are reluctant to move away from them by reciting the well known mantra, “If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it”. This mantra only gets you so far, until your competitor takes advantage of the newer, faster, more efficient, and more maintainable technologies, and you are left in the dust with your “pristine-aint-broke” legacy code.
CyberGuard has developed a custom mobile security appliance – the sVPN or single virtual private network – for remote employees of a leading electronic commerce business.
This week I’m going to show you how to make your mouse arrow customized using simple actionscript in Flash.
This is a neat effect you can use if you want the mouse to match the scheme of your site, but try not to go overboard as lots of Flash developers have done in the past.
By design, the server that hosts your web site delivers a 404 Error / Page Not Found when a surfer clicks on a link that the server cannot find or something else unexpected happens. The most common error page is the HTTP 404 “Not found: The requested URL/whatever.html was not found on this server.”
When visitors to your site misspell your URLs, or follow broken links to your pages, their browser will display a ‘404 Error’ page that will tell them that the page they were trying to access does not exist. At this point, they will most likely leave, rather than trying to guess how to get to their intended destination.
One thing that’s certain on the Web is nothing stays the same for very long. This is especially true when it comes to pages of your website. When you first create your site you may think you’ll never need to alter the structure. But as your site grows, chances are there will come a day when you need to move or change the names of existing pages.
With the release of OS X, business owners have realized a tremendous ncrease in the number of pre-built applications (many ported from the UNIX world). Even with this increase, companies sometimes find it difficult to switch to the Mac or run their business entirely on Macs because of one or two specific applications are available only for Windows.
This is a question I get a lot when I bring up custom tags. A custom tag is a piece of code that you create and you call it from within your ColdFusion applications. Think of it as a “SNIPPLET” that you can implement at any time, anywhere in your site. What can you do with a custom tag? Well, just about anything!
