    I thought this deal was worth sharing. Get a $20 Amazon Gift Card for $10 today at living social. If you haven't heard of Living Social it's a Groupon competitor offering local deals at discounted prices. I don't often get excited about the local restaurants/spas, but I shop at Amazon...

    Solved: ASP.Net ListBox problem

    Any control that causes a formpost is causing a postback. So your button is causing the postback. If you search for "asp.net page life cycle" you will find charts/etc that spell out the order of events. (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms178472.aspx) It gets even more confusing as...

    Solved: ASP.Net ListBox problem

    I think the best way to help would be a simple explanation of webforms. In a traditional web development environment, the only way to collect data from the user is through forms. A form is displayed to the user in HTML, the user completes the fields and then posts the form by clicking a submit...

    Solved: ASP.Net ListBox problem

    On page load you are calling displayContacts() and the first act of that function is to clear all values out of the list box and add in new ones. This is what is clearing the selection. It might seem like you are adding the same items, but .net treats it as all new items with the selected item...

    My website is not displaying properly in IE 6 and IE7

    It looks good in IE8. If you need to have it look correct in IE6 you will probably need to an an IE only stylesheet. Create a stylesheet caled ie6.css or something similar and add it to the top inside conditional tags. <!--[if lt IE 8]> <![endif]--> Make sure it is after your main...

    My website is not displaying properly in IE 6 and IE7

    Most of your problems seem to revolve around the box model. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Explorer_box_model_bug I would fix your problems in IE7 and ignore IE6 until you see how many users you have using it. IE6 is dead and major websites are phasing out support for it, including all...

    My first website...what you think?

    I was going to make a post of items, but lordmurf did a great job of that. You mention outsourcing design, do you also outsource your HTML/Web Code? First, definitely pay for your own site, having a bad site is worse than having none at all. Second if you are going to advertise web design you...

    Sql

    The way it's set up you'll need three joins to your Cmp table each with a different alias. You can also do it with subselects, but I don't recommend it. You should read about normalizing your database as the current structure is not very efficient. Select E.*, c1.*, c2.*, c3.* From...

    Fastest language?

    That argument has been made every time there are advancements in programming. C was going to make bad programmers as you learned a lot more about memory allocation and what's truly going on with assembly. Then Java was going to make bad programmers as it did too much for them. In the end, it...

    Fastest language?

    It's called Rapid Application Development (RAD), not dumbing things down. When a companies programmer can create applications, or websites, faster and more efficiently because of smarter tools companies benefit. You sound like one of the people who railed against IDEs and WYSIWYG editors...

    Fastest language?

    C#, VB.net, J#, C++/CLI, etc are all compiled into the Common Language Infrastructure (CLI). Although it's not byte code it is much faster than interpreted languages like PHP and Classic ASP. It's much the same way Java works. The CLI code can then be run on the .net runtime or mono for...
