The first thing I did was to build the database tables.  The I sat and thought about all the different actions users and administrators were likely to want to take and started making the stored procedures for them.  Then came the business objects that wrapped up those database calls.  Then on top of that came the business logic that wasn't database related.  Finallly, around then, my graphic designer turned over some HTML and graphics and it was time to put it all together with a UI.

My forums are pretty basic, but so are my users and they don't like lots of functionality. You can see the end result here:
I had a lot of fun writing them, and they've evolved quite a bit over the past 9 months that they've been around (they were done to mirror the functionality of an older, VB6 based messageboard DLL).
One thing that's not obvious from the UI is that I log the IP of EVERY post. Trust me, if your site starts getting some traffic you'll thank yourself for it later when you can ban unruly users' IPs.

Running FF 2.0, Win XP, wireless connection. Using Tab Mix Plus and Firefox Preloader. When I shut down FF and then shut down my computer, I get a message when I turn the computer on again. It says your last FF session closed unexpectedly. You can restore tabs and windows or start a new session, etc. This is happening even when FF is turned off using the X in the upper right. What is making this happen and how can I stop it? I'd be happy to just always start a new session if necessary. But I would prefer to only have this option when FF really did close "...

Converting classic to .NET 2 code, and .NET gets an error back from ADS?
 For future-proofing, our Internal Phone Directory is being moved onto our AD servers, and obviously we're using LDAP for queries.To get the phoneboook queries working, I adapted the current classic ASP code to use LDAP, and that works fine. However, we're wanting to move these pages to .NET, and that's where the problem comes in. Using the same basic logic from the Classic code (90% of its unchanged) to produce an LDAP query, I get the error  155 Unknown error (0x80005000)This is using the same website, and so the same credentials  - unless aspx pages run und...

Embedded Perl with persistence/caching; How does one get a new version recompiled (code with run-time errors does _not_ replace good code ...)
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, I am hacking a hack of the Peristent Perl interpreter shown in the 5.005_03 perlembed man page (the code itself is below ..). The problem is that when the path in the code to eval a new or changed file is chosen, the behaviour is unexpected in that when a new version of the file that is syntactically correct but has a run time error (eg missing module load), the new code is _not_ the code that runs, the old (no run-time error) code continues _to_ run. If the host program (that embedding the Persistent interpreter) is restarted, then all is well: the ... How did it get on to my machine

getting a new start up message
Hi, I searched the other messages in this string and no one seems to have replied to Chetana who had a similar problem. For no apparent reason today, whenever I try to connect to Firefox as my default internet browser, it asks me which profile I want to use. When I click default, it says that it's already in use and should create a new one. Well, I did but I lost all my bookmarks. What's that all about? Why would Firefox do such a thing without first verifying with the user? Thank you for any help you can offer. Kat Kat wrote: > Hi, > > I se...
