Here are three possible answers for the beard - and - ponytail question. Which do you think it ...
|1237||What proportion of our web traffic is robots?|
We welcome search engines to our site - to index our content and point their visitors back to us where appropriate, but such search engines are a means to an end and not an end in themselves. How much traffic to our web site is true visitor traffic, and how much is automata? An interesting pointer is ...
|2520||Global and Enable - two misused words!|
The word global is used in declaring variables in some languages such as Tcl and Python to indicate that the variable being referred to is shared with the variable of the same name at the top scope. To use the word global, which implies that the declaration makes the variable visible everywhere, is misleading

|1307||Troy, up state New York|
I'm in Troy - upstate New York, at the tidal head of the Hudson river 150 miles from the Atlantic Ocean. Troy is proud to be named after Helen of Troy, with her beauty shown on the top of a tall pillar in the town square.
Troy is also proud to be the town of origin of Uncle Sam - someone else who's ...
|1375||Python v Ruby|
Ruby v Python ... I've been asked for a comparison!
• Both are object oriented scripting languages - or rather claim to be scripting languages, but are really compile-and-run via their own virtual machines, in just the same way as Perl and Java are.
• Both are modern, Open Source languages ...

In answer to an email asking about alternative PHP courses ...

A note from Chris, on checkout duty: "Xxxxx has left - very happy with this stay and previous stays. Leaving for promotion in different company."
We don't like to loose regular guests, nor do we like to have irregular guests choose to stay elsewhere if they're in Melksham again - so we look to keep ...

|1967||LinkedIn - Thrice Asked, and joined.|
I admit it - I was something of a cynic when I got my first invite to join LinkedIn; I saw it as yet another idea / directory and felt that - although I should be networking - there's a limit to the number of profiles I can maintain, and to the amount of information I should put out there to fade, gently, ...

It's exactly two years since we opened our doors at Well House Manor for our first residential training course delegate, and moved from being just a training provider to being a provider of overnight accommodation too.

Caen Hill Locks on the canal run through the town, and as ...

Let me make two statements:
1. When you are popping up a new window from your program, the very last thing you want to see happen is for the window to gradually appear, with bits of it being resized as it comes on the screen - not only is such an operation irritating on the eye, but also it's burning ...
