Online calendars can be useful and can vary in complexity from a simple calendar to a full blown online booking system. In this tutorial i am going to cover the former of the two.
First thing that needs to be done is to work out what information we will need to collect and display...

Not sure if that's recent news or not, but I've had some request about changing uTorrent 2's peer_id because it's been banned from some trackers. UPDATE: The peer_id I used in this article is not correct. It should work using -UT160B- instead (see article for link)

This is a more optimized Visual Basic calculator. It contains neater code and lets you understand better on how you can code the same calculator. In short, neater code.

This is part 1 of a multi-part series detailing Common Lisp from a beginners viewpoint.

This part will gently introduce you to Common Lisp, before pushing you into the deep end. Expect to come away with an understanding of Lisp symbols, functions, scope, and closures, and hopefully you will be able to write some Common Lisp code too.

While developing across several domains I found AJAX lacking, in that I could only request an XML document from the same domain the script was currently executing from. Since I required some data to be shared across several domains I ended up with duplicate XML documents, updating them meant updating the master local XML document then uploading it to all of the different servers one after another. The following is a demonstration on cross site AJAX using a PHP proxy, pAJAX anyone?

I am a university student double-majoring in Italian and CompSci. I am very involved with helping the Italian department get up to speed with the 21st century in terms of digital media.

One recent project involved getting 120 YouTube videos into MP3 format for the students and the professor of an Italian Music class. A little research brought me to "youtube-dl." From this and two other tools, I put together a script to take care of this task for me automatically!

Recently i was trying to improve search engine spidering on a website, and read several articles regarding spiders, do they like something.php?somevar=foo&anotherVar=bar do they follow them using the entire querystring or not? well the jury is still out, there is evidence google (for example) does at least make a passing effort to spider them. But this wasn't good enough for me, the following article explains how to use custom 404 error pages to serve pages that do not exist.
