Welcome to my Web-Page :D
This page contains updates of what's been happening to this site.
(Day being day I've worked on it, not Day it's been up -_-)
Day 82.) Greasemonkey Scripts To "Fix" Google Searches
Direct-Link Google Search (Makes Google faster) --> http://userscripts.org/users/23652
Direct-Link Google Image Search --> http://userscripts.org/users/79816
Day 81.) Web Cam + Fast Internet = Hours Of Fun!
http://chatroulette.com/ <--- Also fun if you don't have a webcam :p
Not for people under the age of 16 (Totally Uncensored - You get what you get)
Day 80.) Epic SA Home / Cell Number regex!
Trust me - It rocks :)
Day 79.b.) My Master Plan - Ruined
"If the page with the XMLHttpRequest is on a http:// URI (on a webserver), it is not possible to fetch data from another domain. This is a security measure."
My quest for Dynamic Content on an HTML page continues...
Day 79.) Microsoft Annoyance (SQL)
The following code technically should, but does NOT work:
"ALTER TABLE tblName ALTER COLUMN id_num ADD IDENTITY (200, 2);s"
Microsoft decided it would be a good idea to disable the ability to add identitys onto existing
Tags (Since it took so long to find - Go Google!):
SQL IDENTITY ADD COLUMN ALTER MODIFY TABLE
Day 78.c) Google Site Annoyance
It seems Google Sites automatically removes HTML comment tags, visibility: hidden CSS,
- Edit -
"*Insert My Name Here* broke your page lock while you were editing and saved changes to this page. Your save will overwrite their changes. Continue with save?"
I am the ONLY user :|
Day 78.b) Annoying SQL Error Fix!
SELECT * from strField1, strField 2 FROM tbl1 INNER JOIN tbl2 ON tbl1.ID = tbl2.ID WHERE tbl1.strField1 <> tbl2.strField2
Cannot resolve the collation conflict between "SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS" and "Latin1_General_CI_AS" in the not equal to operation. (Or some such)
SELECT * from strField1, strField 2 FROM tbl1 INNER JOIN tbl2 ON tbl1.ID = tbl2.ID WHERE tbl1.strField1 COLLATE DATABASE_DEFAULT <> tbl2.strField2 COLLATE DATABASE_DEFAULT
Day 78.) Mixups...
More Google Sites / Pages issues - Site is back up though...
And yes, I AM aware that the bottom of this page is whacked,
and the apps in "Links" are EXTREMELY out of date :p
I'm messing around with some XMLHTTPRequest stuff, that will hopefully make it cool :)
Day 77.b.) Weird Deletion
My site recently got moved from GooglePages over to GoogleSites.
In doing this, it got renamed to "reelix2" (reelix being a test site)
I deleted "reelix" (The test site) and now my site no longer shows...
Only way I'm editing this is because I left the edit window open :)
Hope my site still stays... :|
Day 77.) Quote
"Teaching is wasted on those unwilling to learn" - Reelix
Day 76.) Some Lols
You say I'm weird? --> http://i.imgur.com/NWYiq.jpg
Day 75. Life!
Current Host Of My Site! :D
Day 74.) More hosting issues..
Whilst Hostultra would have been perfect, It turns out that they don't do Nameservers for Sub Domains.
Eg: za.net is a Domain (One .) whilst reelix.za.net is a Sub Domain of za.net...
So close, yet so far! The search continues...
Day 73.) This site is currently:
Day 72.) Hosting (Or lack thereof)
On my quest for free hosting (Preferably ASP):
First host: 987mb.com - Stopped free hosting
Second Host - atbhost.net - Closed down
http://www.7host.com/ - Only paid hosting provides nameservers
http://www.freeasphost.com/ - Not accepting new registrations
http://www.alexusmedia.com/ - Nothing clickable on their site
http://1asphost.com/ - Registration page 404's
http://www.hostultra.com/ - Only PHP - Possibility?
- Can't find nameservers - Hope they answer support queries...
http://www.brinkster.com/ - Not free
Day 71.) SQL Inter-Table Update Statement
I can never remember this...
UPDATE tblA SET tblAVal = tblB.tblBVal
WHERE tblA.tblAVal2 = tblB.tblBVal2
Day 70.) A guys mind
Day 69.) SQL Query To Show What SQL Commands Are Running
This shows all the SQL Queries currently being run (Including itself)
A.host_name HostName, DB_NAME(B.Database_ID) DBName, B.command, ISNULL(B.cpu_time, A.cpu_time) CPUTime,
ISNULL((B.reads + B.writes),(A.reads + A.writes)) DiskIO, A.last_request_start_time LastBatch, A.program_name
ON A.session_id = B.session_id
OUTER APPLY sys.dm_exec_sql_text(sql_handle) D
WHERE A.Session_ID > 50 AND D.text IS NOT NULL;
Day 68.) Video Stuff!
It's the Video Player / Codec Pack I use -> Download: Mirror 1 / Mirror 2
Ogg Theora Encoder (Firefox Plugin - firefogg) : Here - All Hail Ogg!
Day 67.) Harmonic Ciphertext
Day 66.) Updates to my Links Page (Thanks Prowerse!)
Day 65.) Epic 8-Bit Video (With Lego!)
Day 64.) Google Fail
Chrome was not updated during this time.
The Google display error is on ONLY chrome (Bottom image), and was the best IMHO :P
Day 63.) LIFE + Reverse Image Lookup!
My site has come back to life! http://www.reelix.za.net/
Reverrse image lookup - Upload an image, see where it appears online! http://tineye.com/
Day 62.) Domain Update!
On my eternal quest to have free internetting, My site is changing hosts yet again!
My new host is atbhost.net (1GB Free hosting, with DB, FTP, CPanel, No ads and namespaces)
After thinking awhile, I actually prefer reelix.za.net to reelix.co.za - It just sounds better :p
If anyone can find similar specs to that (Don't need 1GB) with .asp hosting, give me a yell! :D
Oh, and if you want to know how long till it's ready?
Click -> Here <- (183 in the queue at time of writing)
Day 61.) Epic YouTube Vid! (And a tick)

✔ <--- A tick (That's text, not an image)

Day 59.) Changes and Code!
Shrunk the picture of the dragon.
Added "Counting results in an ASP SQL Query" to my Coding page.
Day 58.) Dragons are cool! So now there's one at the top!
Day 57.) New domain! http://www.reelix.co.za/ is now up!
http://www.reelix.co.za/ <--- This site!
Day 56.) Flutter - For when 140 twitter characters is too much to read!
Day 55.) Brilliant Sims 3 Blog Story - Highly Reccomended!
Day 54.) php Easter Egg
Day 53.) 987mb.com Free Hosting Has Been Depleted
It is with great sadness that one of the subsections that have made my site work -
The free hosting provided by 987mb.com - Has come to an end.
It seems that THEIR hosts have decided to stop all free hosting, and, since everything about my
site is free (Hosting, domain, etc), I regret to see it go.
As of now, all "http://www.reelix.za.net/*" links will be broken
(Including plain http://www.reelix.za.net)
If anyone can find an alternate free hosting solution (With 100MB+ FTP),
please don't hesitate to inform me :)
Since my main site (What you are looking at now) is hosted by Google, it will not go down,
although I was looking to move off Googles WYSIWYG Editor (And get proper URL redirection)
Day 52.) How The Fix To The Worlds Most Annoying ASP Error.
Result: Instead of calling the URL, call the external IP.
From: url = "http://mysite.com/whatever.php"
To: url = "http://184.108.40.206/whatever.php"
(Find the IP via: ping mysite.com in CMD from external PC)
