Hmmmm…

Not sure what happened there. Normal service will be resumed shortly…

The joy of versioning…

Sorry to bang on about this, but I’ve made some pretty major under-the-bonnet changes to the projectGenie system. Most important is the security system which I’ve made a whole lot more … secure. But there are also a few other tweaks. I’ll be using this current version (version 0.5) in a real life scenario soon, so I’m sure there’ll be more changes very soon.

AJAX goes mainstream…

Nice to see that a large UK newspaper is sounding the DOM scripting horn. Good on them, I say. And with JavaScript making more and more appearances in the wild (check out Adactios latest thingy), the future is looking interesting. In fact I may have a new site live within the next couple of months that uses a smattering of nice unobtrusive DOM scripting techiques in its shopping cart and account management system. Watch this space.

Look mum, no wires!…

Following the successful installation of a Netgear DG834GT 108Mbps Super Wireless ADSL Router and a WG311T 108 Mbps Wireless PCI Adapter we now have a wireless network running. Because this is an old house with very thick walls, and the router/computer with the wireless card in are opposite ends of the building from each other, the signal is weak. But it works.

And to test it what re we going to do? Run diagnostics? Nope. test connection settings using a variety of automated scripts? Nope. Start a SET@Home type data exchange thing? Nope. We’re going to play Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon. Bring it on.
