making real web shooters ?

Well i have been searching the web for real tech like the movies. and i've always been a spidey fan unfortunately the web shooters don't exist. because no one knows about the fluid or the shooter  i got some idea's for the fluid i think  most people believe that there is glue in the mix but i think maybe liquid rubber would work as long as it's still liquid until it squirts out or like some kind of string to shoot out with it to stick to it to make it a solid web .and for a very important part of the shooter a small narrow nozzle  i'm not a science wiz so please give me some ideas  or comments.

A-Jax - Speed - Web Developers

Why use slow flash when faster better ways are there? AJax is great, fast, and does the job. Here is some simple code for your site: xhr = (window.XMLHttpRequest) ? new XMLHttpRequest() : new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.xhr"); xhr.open("POST or GET", "PAGE-URI", 1); xhr.onreadystatechange = (function() { Code to run for the result.. }); Simple yes? My site uses the code above but within lots more Javascript hacks included. My site is http://sitegen.com.au/ My js file is minimized so to get to the code just goto http://sitegen.com.au/js.php?min=false and the same deal with my css file..

Web design & development series

Hi, I am web designer & developer form Nederland. I've been looking around here for some time and it seems like there are not many series that cover everthing about how to design and then develop a website. I thought it would be awsome to create a instructsble serie that let's someone develop there own website in pure HTML & CSS. So I have a couple of ideas. - explaining the basics of flat design (todays standard in web design) - creating a website in pure html & css from the ground up - creating a compleet wordpress theme - much more If you like one of the above ideas or if you have one of your own, please let me know. Thanks for reading. And let me know what you think! Greetings from Holland.

Any advice on setting up a personal web server, please? Answered

Allow me to apologise in advance: I have checked with Google and am still a bit confused. Currently I pay for webhosting and I'd like to do away with those costs. I want to set up a reasonable fast pc to act as a server for my websites. Has anyone here actually done such a thing and was it (very) difficult? Also, once I have bought my web domains, how do I point to my own server? I don't need the detail of the how to as I can research that - what I need to know is just how much work this will entail and what range of Linux/Microsfot products will be needed. Many thanks.

Need help with web script? Answered

I know a little about scripting web pages, but I'm mostly a hardware guy.  I need to figure out how to make certain text on a web page change based on where the client's location is.  (For instance, I need to say "serving (client town here) and the surrounding area since......." and I also need the phone number to change.  So far the best option I have come up with is creating a different web page for each town.  I know this script is possible, but I just don't know how to make it.  If anybody out there knows how to script this, I would help me a lot.  Thanks!

SPyware - The Web Of Trust? ( WOT)

Recently Ive been very jumpy about spyware. it seems that on99% of everywebsite I see, there's a spyware ad in a corner. Ive been wondering how much spyware I've installed without knowing.... Antispyware software is good, but it doesnt always do the whole job. Most only block a program after its already started. Ive heard about the Web Of Trust. Supposedly, its a network or people who rate the safety level of a website. Ater you install the program, a safety rating will appear next to it on google, IE or Firefox. I tried researching it, but I cant find any RELIABLE sources. I was wondering if you guys have heard about this or know of something similar. Im ver worried about spyware and would like to know of other safety precautions. Aso talk about spyware in general here.

How can i assign a domain Name to a local IP address?

What I am trying to do is network all of my computers in an intranet and I don't want to have to use an ip adress to access one computer from another in my intranet on a web browser. By domain Name I mean like how Google has Google.com even though they have a different ip address. Let me clarify what i want to do. I want to be able to access any computer from another through a local intranet "web" adress like "Http://Computer1.com This is for several reasons but one main reason is that i am planning on connecting a router to my intranet to allow my ipod to access my computers but the ipod doesnt use backslashes so i couldn't enter \\192.168.1......  or \\Computer1. I would have to enter  something like Http://Computer1, hence why i want to do this.

Easily edit a custom web page? Answered

I recently created a website for a local church in my area- everything went great, but now the secretary wants to be able to edit those pages as she wishes. The thing is- every thing I have done is through Dreamweaver and is all custom coded. She wants to be able to edit it like you would a Word document. Is there an easy way I can export the pages into an easily editable file that almost anyone can figure out even if they have little technical know how?  I know the computer it is editing on is WIndows (I think) Vista (or XP), if you need a program to edit the files. Thanks in advance.

Web Hosting Help for a Non-Profit

Hi,So this year I joined a non-profit organization called The Student Free Press Group. It distributes a newspaper called The Independent about once every 2 months or so. Here is a little blurb about them. The Independent is a student-run, student-owned, student newspaper and non-profit organization. It is important for us to emphasize "student" because we are in no way affiliated with the school district or Memorial High School.Philosophically, The Independent strives to be an open forum for students to express their views without oversight from school or governmental authorities. While news articles are required to be objective, editorial opinions are not censored; inclusion in the paper is based upon the quality of the writing rather than the nature of the opinion. The Independent serves the community not only by providing a forum for expression but also by giving students an opportunity to develop skills in writing, reporting, leadership, and independent initiative by becoming writers or editors of the paper.The Independent was born during the 1990-1991 school year after a censorship dispute between the administration and the student-edited school newspaper, The Sword and Shield. The administration, once a staunch supporter of student journalism, began to exercise the powers granted to it by recent Supreme Court decisions and sought to review each issue prior to printing. After encountering fierce opposition to publishing a news article revealing sub-par minority grade point averages at the school, all but one member of the editorial staff of the official school newspaper resigned in protest and, the following year, began publishing The Independent. Since that time, The Independent has gained the readership and the respect of students, faculty, and administrators.So here is my task. I need to create a professional looking website for the newspaper. I'm already have a domain but I am looking for a good, free hosting provider.So I am looking for a free web host that will give us a lot of space and a decent amount of bandwidth. In return I will allow them to put ads on the site and in the newspaper which is distributed to about 1,300 people. So I'm wondering if anyone would be interested in sponsoring the site/newspaper. If anyone knows anyone who would be interested please give a link or there email.Thanks for your time,Joe Rowley
