Im still impressed at this forum being 3 hours of work
Isn't this just an install of existing code and point the database connectstring the right way?
I'm more impressed at the organization effort. Kudos, AHA!

I think he does freelancing.
BTW, he has often mentioned that he has ASP.NET like framework for PHP, which he built himself, and that is what makes him super productive. I remember mailing him once that why doesn't he open source it, he could have more contributions but he wanted to keep it closed. Now you know why. :)

"Isn't this just an install of existing code and point the database connectstring the right way? "
no, I dont believe so.
he said (I think) that he scraped the code from the ?off site and then wrote the php(?) to output that...basically a reverse engineering effort.
I assume that the database was made from scratch..just a couple of fields I think he said.
"I'm more impressed at the organization effort. Kudos, AHA! "
yeah, he brought it all together pretty quick.
"I think he does freelancing."
Not freelancing. I work for a company who's product is a web-based application. Prior to that, I worked for a small web / software development firm designing a content management system and implementing some very popular websites in it. (One the sites was in NY Times last week)
"BTW, he has often mentioned that he has ASP.NET like framework for PHP, which he built himself, and that is what makes him super productive."
This is not built with that. This is built with a tiny stripped down framework I wrote to do websites on the site (when I did that sort of thing). It's absolutely perfect for this project because it doesn't do much.
I actually didn't have a copy of it so I have to FTP into one of those old sites and suck it down.
"I remember mailing him once that why doesn't he open source it, he could have more contributions but he wanted to keep it closed. Now you know why. :) "
Hehe.. well that framework still needs some work. In fact, right now I have to figure out why my input validation for radio button groups isn't working. Arrg. I might open source it one day when the project is done.
"do websites on the site"
.. should be..
"do websites on the side"
so you dont do work on the side anymore? have you got any personal projects going?
No. I'm way too busy. I still do work for my old employer a bit (keep his sites running, clients happy, and train new people) and the site I'm working on keeps me up very late most nights.
This is my only personal project.
I'm afraid you guys might have to wait a little bit for some updates as I *have* to do some work soon! Reading all the posts in this forum have sucked away a good part of my day!
I wonder if anybody has asked yet....
So you stole a lot of Joel's CSS and layout?
I dont really care, I was just curious how JoS it looks?

Hey hey, lets give credit where it's due. Personally, I had to log into the domain control panel and enter three, count 'em: 1-2-three, name servers!

(actually, I could take credit for the banner, but I think the opinions pretty split on that anyway...)

LOL, sorry jeff. I was *also* very impressed by the slick way you nailed that DNS stuff.,,,all those complicated numbers and fullstops, navigating the website(?)....
thanks for the setup, anyway :)
LOL. That reminds me, I actually did enter one of the in wrong the first time, to many dots. ;)

This forum is wonderful.
One thing that would be nice, though - right now on all HTTP requests it's returning the header:
Cache-Control: no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0
So everytime you forward/back it reloads the page. This is unlike the behaviour at ?off, where a reload generally had to be manually performed (which means that as you browsed around Firefox would remember all of your scroll positions)
