It's because the links to the photos on Mike's history page have a backslash in their URL in the webpage's source code, instead of the Web standard forward slash--

Code: Select all
<img src="photos\andoverad1986.jpeg">

should be:

<img src="photos/andoverad1986.jpeg">


Here's a direct link to that photo: http://www.mikeking64.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/ssar/photos/andoverad1986.jpeg

Nice work! If I was half as smart as you, I would have used my firefox developer toolbar add-in and "inspect this element". I could have corrected the lines there. I'll post the greasemonkey script in a bit so all FF users can see it.

I became interested in HTML when it was brand new. Then I learned the stricter XHTML and liked it and loved CSS (cascading stylesheets), but I veered away from web technology when Javascript and Java became prominent, and then PHP/MySQL dynamic sites (although that's what a store.com is) and now all kinds of stuff like AJAX (I still don't know that that is), Ruby on Rails, etc.

Being a well rounded web developer nowadays looks like it would be pretty tough. There's so much and such diverse technology that it would almost seem mandatory to develop a specialty (like CSS design or Javascript or whatever). :)

You are right Steve. There are quite a few different languages and aspects to knowing web design, that it's very difficult to know a lot about all of them. I think that I am like most web programmers in that I have one fairly strong area and basic knowledge of a lot of others. I know enough CSS, HTML, Javascript, AJAX, and a minimal amount of ActionScript Flash that I can get by. My strongest areas are PHP and MySQL. I also know a lot about search engine optimization, which has helped grow this site so quickly.
Steve_D wrote:all kinds of stuff like AJAX (I still don't know that that is)

AJAX is actually a pretty simple concept. You basically use javascript to make a call to the backend and return data without having to reload an entire page. When I've written AJAX stuff, I've made calls through a javascript function to a PHP function that then queried the MySQL database, returned data all the way back through the javascript to spit out HTML to the screen. Similar stuff is being done on the community portion of the site. Anytime a little window pops up to write a message or when you write in your blog, that's AJAX.

Neat-- I wondered how those popup windows were done. I've seen similar effects at other websites and wondered what was going on under the hood (but too busy with other things to really dig in to find out). AJAX looks very interesting. Thanks for the explanation.

I know it has been a long time since this thread has been active, but I was wondering what the green trash cans on the bottom of the picture are for? Were they for rain water storage? (That was my first guess but there are no visible pipes connecting them)
