Student reprimands Facebook for bad manners and exposed code

Ian

Its PHP, with a MySQL Database.

Given enough time, any idiot could develop it with a copy of Sams Teach Yourself PHP & MySQL in 24 hours.

Planting trees will not save the planet: official

Ian

All this Live Earthy type stuff is a bit pathetic

The best thing we can do for the planet is to use alternative sources of energy to power our homes, workplaces & transport.

Unfortunately it means the environmental groups might have to see nuclear power stations being built or hillsides being covered in wind turbines, but this is a small price to pay to stop hearing this "offsetting" BS.

Its probably better for the environment if you have to fly to invest in aircraft manufacturer to allow them to better research composite materials, new fuels etc than it is to bury your head in the sand and plant a few trees.

Virgin pulls the plug on mobile video

Ian

What the mobile companies don't realise.

Is all people want is to be able to talk, text and e-mail.

Some cheap bandwidth might be nice or free badnwidth for use with certain services. But the types of "M-Commerce" applications around aren't going to make you a [3G spectrum auction sized] fortune.

Perhaps mobile companies should stop spending a fortune on crap like this and start providing quality such as decent customer service.

It seems strange we're being bombarded with technology that will let us watch cinematic quality movies on our 40+ inch HD tellys with Blu Ray/HDDVD players on one hand and something like an iPod video or the unmentionable phone that will let us watch it in Youtube quality on a 2.5 inch screen.
