  1. What would cause this to happen? The link structure on the page is as follows: <td> <a href="index.html" target="_blank" class="links">Home</a> <a href="techtorts.html" target="_blank" class="links">Tech Tutorials</a> <a href="downloads.html" target="_blank" class="links">Downloads</a> <a href="http://s15.invisionfree.com/slashdos/index.php" target="_blank" class="links">Forum</a> <a href="funny.html" target="_blank" class="links">Funny</a> <a href="games.html" target="_blank" class="links">Games</a> <a href="randomfacts.html" target="_blank" class="links">The More You Know</a> <a href="personal.html" target="_blank" class="links">Personal</a> <a href="aboutme.html" target="_blank" class="links">About Me</a> <a href="contact.html" target="_blank" class="links">Contact</a> </td> ...and the CSS is this: .links { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 11px; color: #000000; text-decoration: none; vertical-align: middle } The webpage is http://complhex.no-ip.org What would cause it to open a new tab when left clicking on the link? Consider me baffled...
  2. The logo has a faint large "L" written in "caddie" font in the background...I might need to brighten it up a bit...I actually plan on making the logo larger. The interesting text color is going to be done away with...I was just playing around at the start and left it be. I killed the original design because it just seemed too problematic...I didn't really like the DHTML menu that much (seemed a bit too childish)...this design will represent much better content integration. The one thing that bothers me most about websites is consistency...when navigating a site, the tables, nav links and design structure should stay intact (for the most part). The white window of this page design gives me a build area, while everything else can just be replicated for each page and remain intact. The old design was a bit more choppy, if that makes any sense.
  3. Eh, I got frustrated, scrapped that entire design and went with something new. New name too...kind of a play on words. Address = http://complhex.no-ip.org Check it out and tell me what you think...and what all is wrong with it. Keep in mind that it is still in its basic, unfinished stage. Thanks \\DOS
  4. Nevermind, I fixed it. I do question the need for a nested td that is not wrapped within a table tag...it isn't causing problems when there, but if removed the content table shifts below the navigation menu. The reason I ask about this is because the app that I use to check my code brought up an alert of an improperly placed <td valign="top"> tag...
  5. OK, check the link that I provided earlier (http://slashdos.no-ip.org) to see the updated version of this page, which shows the table color problem that I am currently facing. Thanks for all of the help, I definitely appreciate it.
  6. When altering the color for the content <TD>, it still shows up a faint little line around the hidden table (almost like half a border or something). I'm not at the house right now to upload it, so I can't really show you right at the moment. I will update it tonight and let you see. Thanks for the help, it is starting to look just how I want it.
  7. Wow, I can't believe how simple of a fix that was... Thanks! Edit: Hmm...still having issues. The text is appearing too close to the menu and I can't seem to space it away from the menu. Also, if I try to put the <TD> into a <TABLE> it puts the text below the menu again. I want to build a secondary table to work with for text/links. Otherwise, I don't think I can edit bgcolor or define a size for the area of content...
  8. Hello all; I am trying to insert a vertical navigation menu in the left side of every page on my server and I'm having problems. The problem is, I want to put text/links to the right of the menu, but every attempt that I make, it either breaks the menu table up or it places the text above/below the menu. The following link is the page I am referring to: http://slashdos.no-ip.org ....the large open gap of black space in the center of the screen is where I want text/links to go. I want to make this area a different color background and maybe add a scroll function (not sure on that yet). I basically just need to make an isolated area to the right of my menu for text/links. (Note: The DHTML menu design will probably change, this is just an example. Also, don't mind the table borders...I use them as guidelines and then disable them later. ) Thanks \\DOS
  9. Works perfect! Thanks man. One last thing though...what sort of browser compatibility am I looking at here? This is going to be on my index page and I didn't want users to not be able to see it properly... Thanks again \\DOS
  10. He found the backup console within the admin CP, thanks guys.
  11. I'm trying to get this webpage to work with firefox, but it doesn't seem to want to work no matter what I do. I'm starting to think that it isn't supported, but I know for a fact that it is. I will post the page up on my server later, but for now, here is the code: <HTML><HEAD> <TITLE>C:\>SlashDOS</TITLE> <META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"> <META content="slashdos" name=Classification> <META content="SlashDOS" name=Description> <META content="Slashdos" name=KeyWords> <META content="MSHTML 6.00.2600.0" name=GENERATOR> <script language=Javascript><!-- var tl=new Array( "::SlashDOS::" ); var speed=140; var index=0; text_pos=0; var str_length=tl[0].length; var contents, row; function type_text() { contents=''; row=Math.max(0,index-7); while(row<index) contents += tl[row++] + '\r\n'; document.forms[0].elements[0].value = contents + tl[index].substring(0,text_pos) + "_"; if(text_pos++==str_length) { text_pos=0; index++; if(index!=tl.length) { str_length=tl[index].length; setTimeout("type_text()",1000); } } else setTimeout("type_text()",speed); } //--></SCRIPT> </HEAD> <br><br> <BODY vLink=#551a8b aLink=#ff0000 link=#0000ee bgColor=#000000 onload=type_text()> <FORM> <TEXTAREA cols="70" rows="1" wrap="soft" style="text-align:center" style="color:white" style="font-size:30" style="font-weight:bold" style="border:none" readonly style="background:#000000"></TEXTAREA> </FORM> </BODY></HTML> As a side quest to this matter I would also like to reference the styles within a CSS file, but I couldn't get it to work for some reason. You would put a link to the class within the TEXTAREA tag itself correct? I am not sure what I was doing wrong, but here is the CSS too: .texta { background:#000000 border:none overflow:hidden color:white text-align:center font-size:30 font-weight:bold } Also, putting the JS in an external file would also be sweet, I'm not exactly sure how that is done, but I'm sure it must be fairly simple. Thanks \\DOS
  12. A friend of mine maintains a message board and he wanted to archive the contents, as he wants to host it from his home, rather than the host he is using right now. What sort of software would he use to download all of the threads within his forum? He just wants the pages to be viewable (i.e. HTML format) not interactive.
  13. Ahhhh, good suggestion. I shall try that whenever I get back to my home PC (I'm at work now slacking ). Thanks! \\DOS
  14. I have recently been organizing my MP3 collection (God it sucks to sort) and I decided to make a folder for each artist I have. The problem I'm facing is a bit of a slow down happens whenever it tries to load the main directory. Does anybody know how I can make this slow down not happen? Also, if I keep adding folders to the main directory, will the slow down get worse?

  15. white russians and a protein shake
  16. That's still not it. The guy is wanting to use <embed src=""> to stream the file directly in his myspace. Try playing any of those links in media player by going to file > open URL....none of them actually link to the stream. They coded it well...I see no reference to the ID in the HTML. I could probably find the music video elsewhere...it was just bugging me.
  17. I'm trying to get the actual URL to the streaming video coming from http://www.zippyvideos.com/9180237571154796/freeasabird3, but whenever you right click, it doesn't give properties and in the source it has the URL with "+id" at the end. I've never seen this type of encryption before, could someone assist me in breaking it by any chance? I'm trying to help someone stream it from their myspace account. Thanks \\DOS
  18. Why don't you just get this for $39? Oh and I notice no difference in speed between SATA and ATA. The only difference is the cables are neater.
  19. I suggest the Antec "sonata" with piano black finish. It's nice, EXTREMELY quiet, comes with a 380W TruePower PSU (has spot-on power rails...I have 5 drives and a 9800pro on this PSU and it does just fine) it has removable drive trays and it's nice and roomy. Just do a newegg.com search for "Antec Sonata" and you should find it. I think it has gone up in price recently though.
  20. I'm looking into buying a tempature dashboard to monitor/control temps on all of my equipment, recommendations please. Thanks ~DOS
  21. I've got 1 giant golden delicious apple, 3 gala apples and a bag of green grapes...that's all I've got, I swear!
  22. Yeah, I'm glad you're alright. My job has branches in some of the areas that were hit hard. Just today we found out that the manager at our Biloxi Missippi branch is ok and is staying with her relatives in Texas. Another employee from the same branch is in a shelter and she said that she was told that her apartment floor was flooded with just over 5ft of water.
