#3805 Introductions (introduce yourself here)

Posted by HKEd on 15 May 2013 - 05:43 AM

Hi all.  :hello:

 

Gosh, I'm having flashbacks seeing some of the old 'gang' here.  So many names from the past - Troy, Marcia, Tom...

 

In my time, I've been a travel agent, a casino dealer/inspector, recruitment consultant in oil & gas, public relations exec, writer, quite a mishmash of jobs.  I never really settled in any. 

 

In 1999, I was a member of VirtualDr.com, trying to work out some of the more technical aspects of Win95, when I got an email from a fellow member asking if I was interested in working on his SubSeven trojan detection and elimination programs.  I said yes and things just went from there.  The programs were released in 2000 and I was in the malware-fighting business.

 

I continued doing this on a daily basis on various sites until I had a heart attack in July 2010; turns out heart trouble runs in the family as both of my grandfathers died in their 50s, and an uncle has had two stents put in.  I didn't realise the seriousness of the heart problem until I got the bill from the hospital, showing I had had an "acute myocardial infarction".  I had to look that up.  But these days, having a stent put in is quick and painless.  I have had much more unpleasant times at the dentist.  :blink: 

 

In 2011, I retired with my wife of 32 years to the tropical island of Koh Samui, in the Gulf of Thailand.  We had bought a house here years ago with retirement in mind; the heart attack gave us the excuse to move here earlier than planned. 

 

I've lost interest in the technical aspect of computers, so these days I potter around the garden, shop in the markets, cook, read and look after my investments.  That's all I want from life these days...

#3728 Happy Mothers Day!

Posted by rob on 13 May 2013 - 01:34 PM

As I was with my daughter all day, I did not get the opportunity to wish all Moms a very Special Day and Happy Moms' Day!  While aa Mother and Father are sooo important in a family, A Loving Mom is probaably the main reason kids grow up into Happy, Ressponsible Adults, to keep the cycle going!  All Moms are to be congratulated for performing one of the Most, if not the Most Important roles in society!!

  So Be Proud and I hope you enjoyed your day!!!

Hi folks,

 

 I don't know if you've noticed, but when new content is posted in a subforum, the subforum name (link also) turns bold on the board index when there is new content posted in that forum.

 

 Here's an image:

 Notice how the Lounge Games and Music forums have bold text links. If you choose you can click directly into that forum knowing there is new content.

 

 Hope this helps :)

Posted by ranchhand on 19 April 2013 - 03:14 PM

too late for mirrors.

 

Wow, what a title for a blues song! I can hear BB King now...slow, wailing guitar, quiet voice...

"I'm Lookin' in da' mirror, pretty baby

An' I see an old man who do what he can

But I still see that pretty baby

An I see...

Its too late for mirrors"

 

I have to work on it to get the rhyming, but you get the idea...

#4377 What's the best way to get a new web site found?

Posted by Angoid on 10 June 2013 - 08:06 AM

Use meta tags to indicate the content type, as described in this W3Schools article:

http://www.w3schools...gs/tag_meta.asp

 

It's the "keywords" element you're insterested in.

 

If the site is not linked from anywhere else on the Web, then you'll need to either get another site (that is indexed by the search engines) to link to it or otherwise go to the search engine and find up their submission form that you can use to submit your site.

#4316 Just finished my first marathon-style event

Posted by manunkind on 03 June 2013 - 07:50 PM

Just got back home from running in the Reno Tahoe Odyssey 2013.  12 person relay - 178 total miles.  I had 17.7 of those miles in three separate legs of the race.

What a blast.  My toes were bloody stumps at the end.
