The BBC's Fifteen Web Principles
Posts about "web development"
Over the last few weeks my humble email form has been getting a slowly increasing amount of spam emails sent through is - usually with Japanese email addresses for some reason. Now as the web form just gets sent to me and doesn't go near the web site so I just sighed and put it with the rest of my spam.
Some time ago, I released myCommute out into the wild - a personalised way to view public transport travel updates from your PC, using the BBC's Travel feeds.
It's with a sense of trepidation that I today reactivated the first of my PHP built webforms since the email injection attack on my site nearly three weeks ago. Ever since then, I've had an ever increasing number attempts on the Hitoplive based forms which remained. None successful of course, but it's meant that I've been a little cautious about unleashing my new script on the world.
Thanks to the script/person who hacked a webform on planetbods.org this evening and started using it to send out junk email to goodness knows who. Enjoy rotting in hell once you and your moronic kind have finally killed off the internet once and for all.
Well all good things must come to an end. After over three years, I've finally moved Movable Type over to using mySQL instead of the old Berkley DB database. Wiith several hundred posts in it, things were just getting a little too slow to work with, so it had to go.
For well over a year or so, I've been working, in my spare time, on a content management project for the erstwhile Transdiffusion - a project which has, ultimately, resulted in the neglect of this blog, the upload of my photos and goodness knows what else.
Because I don't have my browser set to full screen. And I don't want my browser to be set at full screen.
Well it's taken a year and I've finally fixed most of the issues with the CSS on my sites, and Firefox not displaying it, thus leaving the site looking plain and white until you refreshed.
