Hall Of Shame.US - group at My World Of Work

Hall Of Shame.US - group at My World Of Work: " there are rules, and there are exceptions to the rules. Here is one such company formally nominated to the Hall of Shame.US:

http://directlinecruises.com/

This company simply put profits before people, and when I went out of my way, to request assistance (and it was not even my money, or a cruise that I was going on) all with reasonable requests, the customer service person said that they are not "making any money" on this cruise based on the number of conversations they have notated.

When I was merely being assertive and requesting that the company "compromise on it's policy" the representative simply said, that they can't do this for everyone. Later to someone else they spoken, they even had the nerve to "call me rude" when I was politely yet assertively, requesting to speak to a supervisor. "

When the methods you have used lose their effectiveness, its time to change.

When the methods you have used lose their effectiveness, its time to change.: "People doggedly remain loyal to concepts that either never worked well, or are no longer effective.

In order to develop a new method, plan, agenda, procedure or paradigm, it is useful to take a long hard look at where the old method has failed. If you skip this important step, there is a strong likelihood that you will simply grasp hold of another paradigm which will also leave you out in the cold."

Science Proves You’re Stupid

Science Proves You’re Stupid: "When Sperry flashed “WALK” to the right hemisphere in charge of visual representation, the patient got up and walked across the room.  When asked why he did that, he (the left hemisphere, in charge of language) said, “To get a Coke.” Imagine Sperry’s astonishment at that moment, knowing the real reason why that person walked across the room. The language hemisphere spontaneously contrived a reason, yet the person who owned the brain had no notion of this.

Whether resolving the issues at the meeting, or putting people in touch with other experts in the community who are willing to help out, our goal is pointing people in the right direction and hopefully finding a solution for the problem.

Introduction to Ajax for PHP Web Applications - NetBeans IDE Tutorial

Introduction to Ajax for PHP Web Applications - NetBeans IDE Tutorial: " NetBeans IDE that allow you to program faster and more efficiently when working with Ajax-related technologies. While learning about the low-level functionality of Ajax, you build a simple application that employs auto-completion in a text field. Content here has been adapted from Greg Murray's article and sample application from Using Ajax with Java Technology.
Ajax stands for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML. In essence, Ajax is an efficient way for a web application to handle user interactions with a web page - a way that reduces the need to do a page refresh or full page reload for every user interaction. This enables rich behavior (similar to that of a desktop application or plugin-based web application) using a browser. "

Integrated Device Technology Case Study Drupal Case Study: "IDT approached Mediacurrent to help migrate the ColdFusion site to Drupal. The legacy site was starting to show signs of age, and IDT wanted to avoid being locked into yet another CMS that would fail to evolve.
IDT required a solution that would prove to be fast, have an extremely easy-to-use interface, scale to thousands of products and offer the flexibility to grow and change quickly to keep pace with the company's markets. Mediacurrent and IDT turned to Drupal to leverage its vast array of features that allow non-technical product managers to easily and quickly deploy product updates."

Farming can be dangerous | Farmer Health

Farming can be dangerous | Farmer Health: "Farmers have a higher risk of experiencing a serious or fatal workplace injury, have higher incidence of cardiovascular (heart) disease, some cancers, mental illness and suicide. Some of the challenges for farm men and women are that they often live and work at the same place. This means that some of the work place risks are present every day, even when not working.

In NSW from 2000 to 2005, there were 6798 people admitted to hospital as a result of an injury on a farm. These most commonly occur through slips, trips and falls, livestock handling, machinery use and farm vehicles. Older people are at increased risk of injury through falling. "

Purim from the Torah

Purim from the Torah: "No other Biblical text exhibits such a density of Kabbalistic idiom. The fact that this abundance of mystical expression coexists alongside a total absence of reference to G-d Himself can perhaps be understood by way of analogy to a panorama of stars that only becomes visible when the radiance of the sun has receded from view.

The term sefirah itself, perhaps the most basic within the lexicon of Kabbalah, finds repeated expression in this book through the related term sefer , "book" (Esther 2:23, 6:1, 10:2, 9:25, 32, et al), constructed from the same Hebrew root, s-f-r."

a) By self-funding, you are able to create real, tangible value in the business, so when you begin talking to outside investors you have a more valuable proposition. This helps your negotiating power and should result in you getting a much more positive equity-for-cash deal."

The importance of the canonical link is primarily to clear up duplicate content issues. That is, to help search engines not make the mistake of confusing two different URLs that are actually the same page as two different pages.

It doesn’t help if you actually have duplicate content. Also, to give Google a clean representation and suggestion of what you want your URLs to look like and how you want Google to index and display them in search results."

WordPress Backups « WordPress Codex

WordPress Backups « WordPress Codex: "How many backups should I keep? 
Excellent question. Most people make a backup and then just replace it every time. It saves space and is less to worry about. But what if that backup file is corrupted or lost? Then what? The general rule of thumb is to keep at least three backups and keep them in three different places or forms, like CD/DVDs, different hard drives, a thumbdrive, web disk, your e-mail account, etc.

My database backups are huge! Can I do anything about that? 
Possibly. Typically, anti-spam and statistics plugins can add large amounts of data and because they are constantly gathering information, the database can swell significantly. When backing up the database, such information is probably not important to keep. Do not mark those tables for backup when selecting them during the backup process"

Changing File Permissions « WordPress Codex: "user account that lets you FTP files back and forth to your server, but your server itself may run using a separate user, in a separate usergroup, such as dhapache or nobody. If WordPress is running as the FTP account, that account needs to have write access, i.e., be the owner of the files, or belong to a group that has write access. In the latter case, that would mean permissions are set more permissively than default (for example, 775 rather than 755 for folders, and 664 instead of 644)."

Creative Licence » Blog Archive » The power of being (not) anonymous: "Vice Magazine caters to tragic youth across the world, serving up snarky fashion commentary, adventure journalism, creative profiling and at least for today, cuddly snow leopards. It used to be cool, but is rapidly becoming not so, thanks largely to my knowing about it and now putting down a form of words.

The comment streams under articles and their legendary Do’s & Don’t’s (caution, not always SFW) used to be a fine example of the internet at its callous, bigoted best. As users trolled each other for a reaction it almost always got offensive.

In the last few days, Vice has implemented a plugin that requires users to authenticate before they post a comment using facebook or another third party account."
