Re: What is "diff engine" ?

Surely if you change things enough its still going to confuse any diff system.

What happens if the changed line is one that you have also changed, how is it going to resolve that?

Re: I want to thank you

Or for those *nix users:

Code: Select all

#! /bin/sh
yes 'Thank You!'

(if you don't know what yes does, then read the man/info pages)

<?php echo "Hello World!"; ?>

I may have just found a bug in that.
It may not work on all setups, what if 'echo' is in the list of disabled functions in php.ini?

Re: Performance and Schema

Isn't it possible your board is slow because you installed a lot of mods? MODs need to be able to work on there own without other MODs so they may be resending queries to the database instead of sharing query results. I assume you have looked at performance tweaking up the chain? i.e. use BSD or Lin...

Re: Bug is less,

1) A formal beta3 provides a fixed, known snapshot that everyone could use for testing, working on mods, reporting bugs, etc. The cvs is obviously going to be constantly changing, you'd need to specify exactly which time-stamp of the cvs you were testing against. This is probably beyond the experti...

Re: Stagger Mass Email

On a large forum with hundreds of users, sending the mails all at once could crash the mail server and/or be interpreted as a DOS attack, I'm not entirely sure about this, so someone with more knowledge than me jump in, but do you really need to send a copy of the email per user to your mail server...

Re: Am I an idiot? Posting HTML?

Well, first of all, it's improper coding practice to USE ALL CAPITALS IN YOUR HTML CODE. Didn't it used to be the other way around? For example, <TABLE align="center" cellpadding="10"> <TR><TD valign="top">[SNIP] Is going to only parse as: <table align="center" cellpadding="10">   <tr>     <td vali...

Re: Why not PHP 5?

I have the problem with php5 some of my applications won't run perfectly with it so I still use php 4. I wish scripts would be fully compatible with php5 because then I would upgrade. . Maybe thats because you wrote your scripts badly? Most scripts should work OK. I switched my PHP4 app onto PHP5 a...
