    Review my blog -

    The template is nice, and the slogan "A minimalists blog" is very effective. The community bar at the bottom is neat as well. Only minor grip I have is that there seem to be too many videos for me. If I visit a site with that many videos on the home page, I automatically think "no, I'm not here...

    How to find the exact PHP template needed?

    Smarty is good, but not very portable. Personally I use the Symfony framework. The templating engine provided is suitable for my needs, and because it uses normal PHP tags, it's also fairly portable to other frameworks if necessary.

    A new money-making website!

    It does look interesting - but as ntsite said, you need to provide a non-referral link in addition to your link with referral: One point to note: no money-making site will work without time and/or money being put into it. The promise of high search engine rankings and huge profits...

    look at my web site

    Looks good overall, nice design and layout. I personally found the grey-on-black body text slightly difficult to read - perhaps increasing this to a lighter shade of grey would help? Or even a larger font, heavier typeface - just something to increase the contrast.

    PDO Connection Error

    Well, for the moment I seem to have found a workaround. I'm running the Symfony framework, and changed my databases.yml DSN to read as follows (new section in bold): When I remove the unix_socket section, it just shows 500 internal server error again. I'm not sure why adding that section...

    PDO Connection Error

    My site has recently stopped working, due to database connection errors. I haven't update any code on the site, but now PHP is showing me the following error: This is repeated every time I try to visit a page which requires database access. I can access the database fine with phpMyAdmin, and...

    Neobux - Real-life experience making money

    Hi all, Just thought I'd share my experiences with Neobux, a relatively well-known PTC network. I signed up a little over a month ago, and purchased a pack of 20 referrals (paid $5 by paypal). As you can see from the banner below, I've earned over $5 in one month from the 20 referral pack -...

    Yeah Star Wordpress Theme

    Looks nice, very professional and the background image works well. Loaded pretty quickly on my (quite average) internet connection. I might look at using this for my upcoming blog. Thanks!

    Pls Review My site and give suggessions

    You might want to make it more clear what the site is about. Perhaps instead of "welcomes you all" you could put a brief description of your site. Also, you'll want to check your English with someone who speaks it natively. Some sentences are hard to understand.

    Suspend or Hibernate?

    I generally suspend, unless I won't be using the computer for more than a few days. Not too concerned about the power (things like your Fridge use more power overall). The fast resume time is fantastic, basically means I can walk up, open the laptop lid and by the time I sit down it's ready to...

    Domain for my new website

    If it's just for India, out of your list I'd suggest But for Google, and promotional purposes is a lot cleaner and more professional sounding. Just depends on how you're likely to be promoting the site in the future. Personally I'd choose

    Would this be classified as host reselling??????

    If you're charging your friends to setup a site for them, I would call it host reselling. However, it's a different matter if you've basically volunteered a page or two for them, and they are "donating" some funds to help you pay for the hosting. I'd think the latter is OK, but you should check...
