Sometimes it’s helpful to see exactly what your CQW is receiving. Put this into a style and see what properties and data you’re receiving:
P:<xsl:value-of select="name()" /><br/>
V:<xsl:value-of select="." /><br/>
I’m doing research to better understand the padding oracle attack that was recently disclosed to affect ASP.NET and thought to provide a quick list of links that I’ve found most helpful:
The ASP Classic is the most unexpected bit to me, but makes perfect sense.
Patch your servers, as the padding oracle is no longer needed. Thanks Matt!
I’ve got alot of irons in the fire and it’s nice to share when one of them is finished. Sometime last year my work began a major revision if its public-facing website. This splintered into two related projects, sites for both Performance Pipe and Chevron Phillips Chemical. The Performance Pipe site went live in January, with the Chevron Phillips site set to go live in the coming weeks. I’m proud of several elements of both sites. I’ll give links to areas of the sites I enjoyed working on along with a brief description of the company.
Every so often I do web site development on the side…rarely really. As I’d like to have a web site to go with the business cards I’ll some day get printed, I put together Ansible Designs. Ansible is a term used in science fiction literature to describe a machine capable if instantaneous communication. Thus, my business is about empowering small businesses and individuals to communicate instantly with their customers and fans through the incredible internet machine. Interesting from a developer’s perspective: Everything worked well until I tested the site in IE6. A little Google diving revealed how to use IE-specific css to force IE6 to render PNGs with correct transparency (I’ve used the pngfix script before, but this is more efficient). Additionally, the portfolio page uses the colorbox jQuery plugin to enlarge the website previews. I’m still trying to think of a unique icon to use for tabs/favorites – let me know if you’ve got any ideas.
I’ll update again when I’m ready to share parts of the new Chevron Phillips web site.
I switched my church’s website over to HostGator prior to going live with the new site design recently. I switched from GoDaddy due to terrible performance with our php/mysql CMS and even poorer support…they told me it wasn’t my site causing the issue and that there was a problem on the server. I asked if they knew when they would fix the problem, and they told me it wasn’t a high enough priority to make a ticket. I then asked if they could notify me when the issue was fixed so that I could retest performance, and they told me that without a ticket they couldn’t notify anybody. To this, my response was: “So you’re telling me you know there’s a problem that’s not my fault, you know which server is having the problem, and you have no eta on when or if the problem will be fixed?” They told me very politely “Yes Sir”….
So I found HostGator. They’re a Houston-based web hosting company that utilizes typical cpanel in their Linux-based hosting. I signed up for the business plan (and found a $2 coupon!) thinking that if they were as bad as GoDaddy I could drive downtown and find them myself. Well – I am overjoyed to report that my experience with them thus far has been phenomenal. I’ve needed help a few times now and all but one incident was solved straight through their online chat support (within 10 minutes each time). The one time I had to email support, everything was fixed up within 3 hours (and it’s way after hours!). Their technicians are knowledgeable and respectful. I couldn’t be happier.
Way to go guys! I’d almost given up on shared hosting.
