I came across a strange problem with Outlook Calendar recently where every appointment which was added to the Calendar and then edited suddenly repeated forever! A scary concept! It seemed to be related to a piece of software called ‘OutlookAddinSetup’. From what I’ve read (http://www.eggheadcafe.com/software/aspnet/29012397/re-recurring-calenda…), this seems to be something which comes installed with Dell computers. After I uninstalled this program (from Control Panel, Programs, Uninstall a program) the problem has stopped and events only occur once. If anyone knows what the program is supposed to do please drop a comment below :)
It’s that wonderful time again! CodeIgniter 1.7.0 has been released, so it’s time to upgrade.
Upgrading looks fairly straight forward - here are some notable changes (http://codeigniter.com/user_guide/changelog.html):
I went to the Live Diggnation at the end of the Future of Web Apps Expo. Excellent show - I really hope they come back again next year! :) (video below)
Here's the video from the recording!
Here’s my first “Flickr picks” picture selection. Every now and then I’m going to pick some photos from Flickr with a particular theme. I thought some nice autumnal pictures would be a good place to start as it’s one of my favourite seasons for taking pictures (winter being the other).
The great thing about autumn is not only the colours from the leaves but also the moody weather - rain one minute, sun the next - it really creates a stunning atmosphere.
What is hotlinking?
Hotlinking, sometimes called image leeching or hot linking, is where another website embeds an image which is stored on your web host. So, for example, if you want to add an image to your website, you can upload the file to your web host then embed the image into your HTML referencing the source for the image as the location of the file on your web host. When someone accesses the HTML page where the image is embedded the file will be downloaded from your web host. If you don’t protect against hotlinking, someone could embed that same image on their web page, which means that every time someone accesses their page, the image will be downloaded from your web host and drain your bandwidth. Don’t do this, it’s not cool and some sites see it as stealing.
