HTML | Javascript | Websites | Tutorials

Ever ran into the lovely "Unresponsive script" error in your browser? This comes from several issues. 

  1. The persons running out of memory on their machine and the browser is taking longer than expect.
  2. The script that was created is doing to much and needs to be broken up.

In this article I will explain how to get around this and provide a method I developed for a recent project I am working on for ShoreGroup.

Multi Site CMS(Ware) CMS 1.0

PHP | MySQL | Websites

I have been developing my own CMS for roughly 2 years now. And only now starting to see the benefits of it. I haven't spoken much on what it is capable of but figured it was time to talk about one of the neat features it has!

Multi-Site handling. Sure WordPress recently has this functionality in it it. But my CMS has the ability to work on multiple pieces of content (articles, dancesteps, movies, and more.) All in one page. In a lot of ways you could consider it the GMail of CMS's.

Streaming Local Media with RokuPlexApp for Roku

Network | Websites | Roku

It has been long awaited that someone would make an app that would connect up to your local machine and stream local videos, music, and photos to your Roku.

I was getting ready to actually buy an AppleTV and then I saw this and about flipped! I haven't given it a go yet, but it looks super promising. It also comes with a neat way to "queue" various videos on the net with a boomarklet. This bookmarklet can tag items into your queue similar to Netflix and basically create a "instant queue" for you to watch later on your Roku.

Get Married the truth behind the closing.Why Start Ups Fail

Websites

A friend and collague of mine spent the better part of a week. Or for good ole time's sake a "Get Married Two Week's." On this article. I am still working on my article that will show all the main revisions of getmarried.com, but until then please enjoy his article.

Tedlee.net

He really does do a good job, without making to many punches, but in truth being honest. There was so much more drama that happened in between each event, but he does a really good job summarizing the reasons why Get Married Media, Inc closed.

Get Married Media, Inc Closing its doors.After 5+ years GetMarried.com is closing.

Websites

It sadden's me to find out a company I recently just left will be closing down most of its major operations today. The rest will follow on December 16th of this month. I had worked for them for over 3 years starting as a base level web developer and grew into a Lead Senior Web Developer. Over the years they definitely had there bumps in the road. It is unfortunate that they could not make it past what was always told to us. "We are not going anywhere." Taylor Corporation assured us that we were a center product and that we were a necessity.

Unfortunately GM is coming to a close and the work I had done over the last three years will now be gone forever.

Website Hosting SolutionsWebsite Hosts

Websites

I have been thinking on this topic for a while and have come up with a couple easy steps to figuring out what will be the best hosting solution for you.

Firstly you will need to ask yourself these questions.

  1. What can I afford?
  2. How big of an application / website am I going to run?
  3. What level of traffic are you expecting / have?
  4. What is your technical knowledge of administrating servers?
  5. What kind of application / site are you running (Terms and Conditions may prevent you from doing some...)

These five questions should really help you decide in what to go with. So now ill go in depth and explain each portion. Aft ert this ill explain the differences in the different types of hosting.

  1. Shared Host / Grid Hosting
  2. VPS Hosting (Virtual Private Server)
  3. Dedicated Server

Yes there are other hosting types that exit, but to not complicate this decision more ill leave that for another post. I have been round robin with several different hosts now. Each I have found things I like, and things I do not like about them. So with my research and sit back and enjoy. As a side note this will be a two part post as I want to go into details about each host that I will review.

Development TheoriesUI Testing all guessing?

Tutorials | Websites

Something I have been saying for a long time now is how the Web World is a guessing game. The same thing can be applied to many other occupations. Facebook, Twitter, and so many other "start ups" that have succeeded in becoming a house hold name in the beginning had no idea if they would be viral.

Facebook had a humble beginning that lead to a insanely addicting social network that allows you to connect with everyone you know and their trash cans. Twitter provides us with a 140 characters or less thoughts. Which is nice as Facebook friends to give us WAY to many details about their lives.

Suddenly with these two start ups they created a new fad. Status updates!

What does this all mean? Basically they chimed in on what they thought to be a "hole" in the market. This hole they filled or rather created.

Wysiwig Editor Example Code IssueConvert special characters between certain tags.

HTML | PHP | Websites

One of my issues lately with my CMS system has been the TinyMCE (Wysiwig Editor). Doing example code has been extremely painful. As everytime I would go back in to make an edit I would have to rewrite the examples as it would convert it to real HTML and or Javascript. Because of this I found myself wasting a lot of time fixing these articles every time I would make an edit.

Luckily I found an easy fix. I switched from using blockquotes to pre tags with code tags. Not only this but I found a PHP script that cleans the code behind these tags to make things as they should be.

Website LoadingWebsite Speed, Website Images

Plugins | Websites

The speed of your website loading is still a common issue with websites. Looking back in the past 56k modems were the majority of people online. Now days its common for average speeds above 2-10MB per second! It would seem that with the increase of the speeds that size would truly matter. However, because faster download speeds are more common larger sites are even more possible.
