Disconnected from the 'Information Superhighway' 

There was a FedEx truck going through the neighborhood and it ripped the cable internet line right off the telephone pole by my house! Incidentally, the power got knocked out for about an hour. But the real bummer (especially for a home web server admin like myself) is that the internet line took about 8 hours to get back online again! So all my websites were sidelined and crying... Now everything's happy again and running like a dream!

Here's the article as it made it into the Telegraph-Forum, our local newspaper: http://litlurl.net/30d8.

Code-Bin Update 

Here's what I'm working on to improve the codebin:

Here's my post from a year ago:

3. Make a search feature. (difficult)
--Would be able to search by topic, type of code, poster...
Still working on this one... (Yes, I know it won't be THAT difficult)

5. Stop bots from rating the scripts. (easy - I think!)
-- Search engines go to every link they find, and thus rate one script 8 times, leaving an average of 4.5. They do that to this blog too. Arrrggghhh!
DONE. It was simple


Other updates:
1. A favicon.ico!!! Like it?
2. Implemented GeSHi, a syntax highlighter
3. Support for many more types of code
4. Cool web buttons on the left column

Make your own buttons --> http://pksml.net/antipixel_ajax

New Code-Bin URL 

The Code-Bin now has a new URL!

http://code-bin.homedns.org



I thought the old URL was a little long. :tongue:

Both the old and new URLs are completely functional.

Thanks to those who have posted so far!
