CAD and houseplans.

Nov. 22, 2006, 9:45 a.m.

I am about to build a new house. The architect that I hired to design it is a dud. True he has come up with a pretty good design, which will be easy on the eye (hopefully) and practical.

Nov. 4, 2006, 11:53 p.m.

It was bound to happen sooner or later. The developers of the PHP engine were going to heed the numerous requests made for file upload hooks so that it become possible to track PHP file upload progress without third party tools like my own MegaUpload.MegaUpload of course is the original PHP file upl ...
