    So I'm trying to figure out CSS and HTML...



    How did I do for a first try?
    text on the right side is confusing because there's no divider between it and the post content, i would take it off the lined paper and put it to the side of it. the date text on the left side of the page should be smaller and a bit further from the red line (more padding), the top navigation bar text is a bit too big and the bottom bar needs more padding. the design itself though looks really cool. you should mess with line-height or w/e and try to get the text to line up with the lined paper.

    need a bit of freelancing advice

    long story short, i wrote an ecommerce system for a local business 2 years ago and said "i'm not going anywhere, i'll be able to help whenever you need it". 2 years later they're still hiring me and giving me more and more work that i just don't have any interest in doing (i don't need the money that much and honestly i could probably be making more if i had time for other jobs), but i've felt obliged to work for them because of how long we've been working together and because i claimed i would be there for support. now they're asking me to rip out a huge part of the backend and replace it with services from fedex and their bank's merchant services, and i simply don't have the time (or desire) to do it. i called them today and tried telling them i simply can't get all this done in the timeframe they need it done in, and they guilt tripped me saying that i claimed i would "always be there", and saying they wouldn't have hired me in the first place if they had known they would have to deal with this headache of finding someone else to pick up where i left off. i told them i would help their new developer and give him all the info he needs to log in and edit the site, as well as explain how the system itself works, but they've managed to twist it into "ill have my fedex guy call you tomorrow so you can get some help" and hang up. they're absolutely convinced integrating it is a 1-2-3 setup, and i'm assuming it's because fedex thinks we're using an existing ecommerce framework which they already have a plugin ready for (we aren't). now i feel like i'm stuck with a todo list i never agreed to, but i'm afraid to be too blunt about saying "i'm done" because the client has given me so much work in the past (and theyre very wealthy and i'm afraid they'll muck up my reputation).

    any advice?

    Everything that you do is so clean, refined and a pleasure to look at but I really think you should try using colour more... and not blue.

    Logos should be able to carry a feeling even in black and white so I think it's a better idea to design them like that.

    Just start squeezing money out of them until they cannot bear you anymore and they'll let you go.

    I've been playing around in a virtual machine for a little bit, because I plan to move to a vps, and I have been trying to setup Nginx as it's much faster than Apache. I've followed this HowToForge tutorial as well as a few other miscellaneous articles, and everything has gone okay so far. Except,
    I can't figure out Nginx's equivalent of Apache's VirtualHosts, and I'd like to host multiple domains on a single vps. Right now I still have the "default" and a "costeira.local" sym-linked in sites-available and sites-enabled like they should be, and I've edited default to point to a different location, and it does work, but costeira.local isn't going to where I've set the root.
    Code:
    server {
    	listen 80;
    	server_name costeira.local;
    
    	access_log /var/log/nginx/costeira_local.access.log;
    	root /var/www/costeira.local/htdocs;
    		index index.php index.html;
    	location / {
    		try_files $uri $uri/ /index.html;
    	}
    }
    I do have it setup in my computer's hosts file.

    Hur, Chrome apparently didn't pick up on that whole hosts file part, even after restarting the entire computer, apparently. Works now.√
    Wordpress cannot connect to MySQL. I've connected to it within the vm, but for some reason WP can't login or connect. Maybe I'm missing something?
    Any other tips I should know are greatly appreciated!

    Thanks.

    I think domain names are pretty cheap no matter where you get them and I think it's definitely worth it to spring for someone with superior service/product like gandi.

    Depends if you want shared hosting or not. Some people here buy VPSs since they want the full core and stuff. But it just depends on the site, somethings you shouldn't put on shared hosting in order to be a good neighbor.

    [4:12:37 AM] stykky: race = (winner, runners...) ->
    print winner, runners

    how can it do this?

    race = function() {
    var runners, winner;
    winner = arguments[0], runners = 2 <= arguments.length ? __slice.call(arguments, 1) : [];
    return print(winner, runners);
    };
    [4:12:55 AM] stykky: it is impossible logically
    [4:14:38 AM] stykky: but logically it is impossible that the different istructions can do it the same, a part of istruction aren't written
    [4:16:48 AM] stykky: this has a logical for me
    number = -42 if opposite
    means
    if (opposite) {
    number = -42;
    }
    [4:17:01 AM] stykky: but the previous example doesn t
    [4:19:12 AM] stykky: but without logical, i think that...also to fix it, i think there is a logical in what you write...my mum makes me so lol
    [4:22:39 AM] stykky: coffeescript is easier than javascript but, i think, must have more logical...infact to fix a program written in cs, i think you must have it in what you write
    [4:26:12 AM] stykky: i have dinner...i leave the pc switchs on (spero si scriva cosi pd)
    Trying to explain CoffeeScript to one of TerabyteS_ Italian friends. It's... a challenge.
