Intel or AMD?
...travel the World. I've already been to many places, but there's still a lot I haven't seen.
I'd also like to HALO jump which is from 35,000 feet, which I believe is more than twice the height...
I'll be getting the iPhone 3GS, but probably not just yet. I'm planning on moving out a buying a new car so need to save every penny, and the iPhone 3GS is damn expensive.
English is my native language, but I'm fluent in German, and I can speak a little Latin.
Macs and PCs both have their advantages and disadvantages.
Macs are brilliant for the creative professional (which they're built for), the OS and build quality, but they're expensive.
The Hangover is a brilliant film, it's definitely a must see and worth the money (if you watch it at the cinema lol).
Personally, I don't want to see DP die.
Over the years it has helped thousands of people, and deserves to stay. It has also given me a lot of work, and still does. It just needs some TLC.
I believe mine was also from AdSense, when I was a gamer, I setup a website for my clan and got my friends to click the ads lol.
The most I've spent is $75 on a brandable 5-letter .com.
I use Firefox, simply because it's fast and has a ton of useful addons.
On another note, as Gaya mentioned, don't use tables, they're so Web 1.0.
I don't read many, but yes, I'll read a personal blog if I want to know more about the blogger.
I'm here today to sell a WordPress design which was originally for a client but fell through due to time constraints.
Included in the sale is an organised .PSD and full rights. If...
I have to say, today's been very interesting.
I live about a mile away from a Village where they often film for Movies and TV Shows (Harry Potter is one of them), and in a few days they're filming...
I found this article on TheNextWeb to be pretty interesting: http://thenextweb.com/2009/06/02/web-death-google/
I have thought about buying multiple domain extentions in the past, but decided not to as I didn't feel it was necessary.
If I was the owner of a big company, I'd probably think otherwise.
Sex sells, it's as simple as that. You have to remember, Prostitution is described as the World's oldest profession.
When there's a way to make money through 'exploiting' Women, everyone will do...
Welcome to WMP, Hector. Enjoy your stay. :)
I second that. Roller Coaster Tycoon is one of the most epic games, ever.
Yes. It suits me fine.
Are you subscribed to any magazines?
Nic, go here: http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=funny&go=&form=QBLH&scope=video&filt=all
Rollover the thumbnails, that's why it's better.
Farrhad was looking into brightening up the forum with new colours, but I'm not sure where he's at with it at the moment.
I also collect coins, along with Zippo lighters.
How long have you been collecting for, Farrhad? I got my first collectors coin from my Nan when I was 6, and was pretty much hooked from then.
That looks pretty sweet, I'm definitely going to have to check this out.
Currently working on a design for a client.
I haven't designed anything so simple before, and it's actually quite challenging.
Very true, I think people think about their About page too much sometimes, which goes against what Simon said as it won't include any personality. It'll be too 'corporate'.
Welcome to WMP, GeeOne. Enjoy your stay. :)
For the Wikipedia entry, click the link and add a closed bracket to the end.
This will work: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pet_Sematary_(film)
It still surprises me how many people still think .tv was created for websites related to television and video.
Yes, it's mostly used for that, but it's actually the ccTLD for Tuvalu.
I haven't tried it out, but I will.
It's been getting good reviews too, surprisingly. It won't take over Google, but they're saying it has the potentional to be competitive.
A whiteboard would be so handy, I keep meaning to buy one.
I guess I didn't put that on my list of tasks, so thanks for reminding me :)
I use Google Tasks in Gmail to write down an idea in brief, then every Sunday I take those ideas and expand on them in Google Docs, going into fine detail.
Overall, the design isn't bad, but there are a number of issues in my opinion:
1. The 'Popular Posts' area doesn't look too good, although the placement is great considering that's where visitors...
This is more of a Comedy Horror, but Shaun of the Dead is the best I've watched.
Comedy Horror is much better than Horror, in my opinion.
I don't play many online games, but the one I play the most is 8 Ball Quick Fire Pool - simply because I'm a Pool/Snooker player.
I also play on OMGPOP sometimes, but not very often.
For a host, I'd recommend ThisWebHost.com, in the cPanel (as with most hosts) you're able to setup a WordPress blog with just 2 or 3 clicks.
When you purchase hosting, enter the domain you'll be...
I didn't drop out of School, but I messed it up big time. Didn't go to classes, took drugs, was always getting suspended etc. You name it, it happened. This resulted in me getting poor grades apart...
I think 404's and other error pages are a good idea to look into.
One of my favourites is the 404 page for the Carsonified events website: http://events.carsonified.com/404
1. It obviously...
I understand you might not have time but if at some point you do, watch the video and you'll understand why it's so full of awesome.
I have to agree that they did screw it up with their latest update, although now I'm used to it, I have no reason to complain. :)
Ah, I apologise. That's just the impression I got.
Good luck in getting work. :)
Your MySpace design was designed and coded by DesignMySpace.org, not you.
Also, Enk, don't advertise your services in somebody elses thread, I'm sure Marcell doesn't appreciate it. Start a new...
Yes. Definitely moderate comments, I don't know how many people here actually read comments (apart from their own blog), but I do and I don't want to be bombarded with spam.
While I haven't come...
He's on about 'Read More' buttons on blogs.
Like on Teenius you have 'Continue Reading' on your most recent post.
Welcome to the community, Mac. Enjoy your stay and be sure to keep active, you'll learn a lot here. :)
Of course it's not just to benefit, although a little self-promotion doesn't hurt does it?
As an example, a blogger may write a post about promoting your blog, but he might miss something out that...
Nic SEO - True, I wouldn't want to use something which had a lot of bugs, although I expect they'll thoroughly test it before releasing it to the public to find as many as they can.
I just can't...
Last.fm is my favourite as I'm very passionate about music, and I enjoy meeting new people with the same taste in music.
I find their recommendation system to be very good too.
As I'm sure most of you know, I have quite a strong opinion about the fact Google won't rule the roost within the next 10 years. Well, change that to had.
After watching the Google Wave demo, my...
The top two are definitely sharing links and posting comments. Posting good/useful comments also helps support you, as people will notice it and may check out your website/blog.
Do you own more than 30 domains?
I try to stay away from other domain extensions other than .com, but if I have no choice, it'd be either .net or .org
If somebody asks me to tell them about an idea I may have, I'd be a little suspicious that they'll take the idea and use it themselves, so I'd keep it to myself, whether they're successful or not.
It's still quite early in the day here in the UK, and apart from waking up with a hangover, the day's been brilliant so far as the weather is lovely :)
Yes. Several :P
Do you like Blues?
TweetDeck is my application of choice, and really the only one I'd recommend. Apart from Tweetie if you're on Mac.
The best domain I currently own is probably TalkNetbooks.com, but the best domain I've ever owned would be Plurg.com in my opinion. Looking back, I wish I had kept it :(
Yes it does. A good design draws attention, the design of a website says a lot about the company in my opinion.
I'm not saying I'll immediately close the window if the design is poor, I'll check...
Well, I don't blog. I make money online through web design. :)
Electricity, without a doubt.
"Step Right Up" In My Pants :O
Other than browsing WMP, I'm checking Facebook and working on the branding aspects of my new business.
Do you really think that?
People used to think Yahoo couldn't be beaten until Google came along. Google won't be the top Dog in 10 years time.
People still use LimeWire? lol
Some of the work on deviantART is mind-blowing!
Apologies for the bump, but I'll let this go for $35 for the next hour only.
I need a lot more than 5, but here it goes..
4. Design Inspiration Websites
Although I rarely use a search engine at all, the obvious answer is Google.
I don't know how many of you watch this, but what a finale!
I won't spoil it for those who haven't seen it yet, but if you have, what did you think?
Personally, I thought it was a brilliant...
I'm not saying they can't be compared, of course they can. What I'm saying is that Google aren't invincible. Sooner or later they'll make a big mistake, just like Microsoft did with Vista.
I don't think Google will succeed in everything. One day, they'll be where Microsoft are right now. This is Google's decade, just like IBM and Microsoft had theirs.
Microsoft will be the industry...
So, when you designed your first website, you didn't think it was amazing? I know I thought mine was.
Just because somebody might not be as good as you are, doesn't make them any less of a...
I check my emails and subscriptions.
@akira07 - Mozilla isn't owned by Google at all, although they do have some sort of relationship, but I can't remember the exact details.
As for my choice of browser, it has to be Firefox. I used...
Nope, it's me! :)
Back to Farrhad A again..?
It's regged at NameCheap and I don't really have a price in mind, hence why I'm happy for people to make me offers, and if I feel the price is feasible, I'll accept.
In all honesty, I know nothing...
@Stefan - It's played through circular breathing, it takes a lot of practice to get it right. I'm far from perfect but I can play for a good 30-45 minutes.
You can read up about circular breathing...
I'm currently selling TalkNetbooks.com as I haven't got time to develop it. With Netbooks growing in popularity, this is a fantastic domain to begin a community.
The domain expires on 6th...
I can play the Piano and Didgeridoo very well, along with the Guitar but I'm not super great as I haven't practised as much.
As soon as I have the money, I plan on buying a Saxophone. As a big...
There's so many, but here's a few I'm subscribed to.
Home Design Find
I Believe In Advertising
I Love Typography
I feel it's a great way to market yourself or your business and network with others.
I can see why it might distract others, but that isn't a problem for me.
Oh man, there's so many.
Prison Break, LOST, South Park, House, Heroes, Dexter, Friends, Battlestar Galactica, The Big Bang Theory - just to name a few.
But if I had to choose one, it'd have to...
35 really isn't a lot, if you know what you're doing and you're organised, it'll be easy to maintain them all.
Or perhaps he has other people maintaining them for him.
If I coded .PSDs to XHTML/CSS, I'd probably use something like Notepad++ but as I don't, Notepad works fine for me.
Even if a lot of code editing is needed, I can work fine without syntax...
Yes, that's right. Unfortunately I'm unable to code from scratch so I can't offer that as a service.
Just noticed your website, the design you have is one I created. :) Although I'm not quite sure...
Thank you, I appreciate your compliment :)
OMG @Farrhad A double posted, he should get a warning lol j/k
Welcome to the forum KidBlogger, glad you could join us! :)
I doubt it's just about money, although that may be a big part of it.
Although their traffic has been falling, they were still getting 11.5 million unique visitors a month. If it was all about...
Nope, just the box standard Notepad. It does exactly what I need it to.
This looks like it'll be very helpful, thanks a lot!
Yahoo Quietly Pulls The Plug On Geocities
Although it's been a long time coming and about time, it's a sad day. If it wasn't for Geocities, I may have never found a career in web design which I...
Although I'm not a blogger right now, these tips will come in handy for the future, so thanks! :)
Yes, most definitely.
It won't be too long now though, I give it about a year.
Wow, they just keep getting younger and younger every year.
Welcome to the forum, young man. :)
There's so many reasons, but if I had to pick one, it'd be advanced customizations. There's just so much you can do with WordPress, and that's why I love it.
Nope, I don't use a WYSIWYG. I used to many years ago, but now I use Notepad when it comes to editing code.
For me, it's Social Media every time. SEO isn't as important as it used to be in my opinion.
There's so many more ways to promote yourself now, and Social Media is the next big thing, so focusing...
@Gaya - Thanks for your kind words.
@razztek - Yes, it's all custom work of mine. In order to turn the .PSD into a WordPress theme, you'd have to hire a coder. Unfortunately I'm not a coder so...
I'm here today to offer my WordPress design services at the low price of $100. For $100 you will receive 2 .PSDs, one for the homepage, and one for the post page with comments.
Hey Clydee, you have an interesting way to introduce yourself.
Enjoy your stay here at WMP. :)
Hello Alan, welcome to the forum. I hope you enjoy your stay! :)
Well, I don't currently have a blog but I'm in the process of launching one. When it comes to the consistency of my posts, I'm going to aim for 3-5 posts a week, maybe more.
I shouldn't struggle...
Excellent post, Swas. Thanks!
Considering they've done work for the likes of Kellogg's, Fiat, Coca Cola, Samsung and the U.S. Army, I'm sure none of that really matters to them.
Businesses know who they are and what they do,...
For your first blog, it seems to have taken off nicely, so congratulations on that! :)
Content-wise, you're doing well but definitely need to update maybe 2 or 3 times a week when possible. What...
I've never been a fan of full Flash websites, and this is a clear example of why - most of the time, they aren't very userfriendly. While Flash looks great, I didn't find this one very impressive. It...
Welcome to the forum, enjoy your stay :)
That's a good bit of advice, Swastik. I've never thought of doing that before, but I think I will in the future with certain services/products as it's a great idea.
Would be interesting to see...
Along with the points already made, I feel that in order for somebody to qualify as a moderator, they should have already made a considerably large contribution to the community - helpful and...
I'm 19, I started making money through web design when I was 14.
I'm @jgreenaway :)
Thank you for the warm welcome fellas!
I've always used NameCheap. I feel they offer a great service so I've never even considered using another registrar.
I also stick to .com domains. I think the last time I purchased a domain that wasn't a .com was back in 2004.
I'm Josh, a 19-year-old web designer from England who has a passion for music, making money and technology.
I want to launch a few projects in the coming months so hopefully I can...
