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.
This really is one of the strangest software bugs I’ve come across!
Dreamweaver crashes and won’t open again. When you try and open Dreamweaver it just closes straight away, with nothing more than a glimpse of the splash screen.
Took my little Flexifoil Buzz (Petrol) out for a fly today. Pretty cool kite actually. It was a little smaller than I had imagined it, but it’s very responsive even under light winds, and very nippy once the wind picks up.
