I got my BBB, metal box and a USB Wi-Fi adapter today. I have several ideas and projects that are on my mind. Now that I have the hardware in hand time to write some code.

Apache Server Side Includes (SSI)

Image
When I first started using Apache way back in the previous century I used Apache Server Side Includes (SSI).  Today I decided to fire up this old technology on my development server.

I am reading a HTML  5 Forms book and so I am creating a lot of pages using the Linux VI editor.  Coding web pages in a terminal allows me to learn and examine code examples by typing them.  One thing that I did not want to do is develop a bunch of pages that did not have any navigation.  I chose to utilize SSI to load a simple menu file onto my example form pages.



My Browser HTML 5 Test

I am going through a training exercise to brush up on my form development.  I am reading a book on Safari Online Books titled Mastering HTML 5 Forms. I decided to do my own browser check to see which one would display my first form correctly. Check your browser here on my form.




Great SQL Tool

I really got excited this morning when I was researching a solution to a database problem.  I always find myself pouring over other peoples questions on sites like Stack Overflow until I find a solution or a clue to my error or problem.  today I was looking at a solution and discovered that the correct answer was posted using a cool online SQL site, http://sqlfiddle.com/

I know I am not always up to date on stuff, but this site is really great.  It will allow you to build a schema and test your ideas without doing any real damage to a database system.  I have always set up a test database for this purpose, but being able to quickly write a SQL statement and se what idt does all on one web page is really cool.  I can test out ideas quickly and then use the SQL code on the production database.

I had a lot of fun drawing this.  Drawing in multiple layers is what I like to do with my art.  I also rarely have any sharp corners in my drawings. Most of the shapes are rounded and smooth. Here is the finished drawing.  You can buy a print of this drawing here.

PHP Parse error in wp-config file

It was a hard start for this WP Blog site.  I had to use my error log to figure out a syntax error in the wp-config.php file.  I went to the Sample file
/** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */ define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8'); /** The Database Collate type. Don't change this if in doubt. */ define('DB_COLLATE', ''); /**#@+ * Authentication Unique Keys and Salts. My file after correction
/**#@+ /** The Database Collate type.
