    Retrieving Files of Suspended Account?

    What all do you need? The url was, with set up as a domain name. The really weird thing is according to the Wayback Machine, the website was still up as late as June 2019 and I can basically guarantee I was still posting after that. So I'd assume I had some...

    Retrieving Files of Suspended Account?

    My account was suspended due to inactivity, and because of the backend upgrades I've been unable to re-create my account for about two months. I've switched to a different host so I could have my website back up and running, but as a result of all this I've lost the content for my blog. I was...

    BOINC on Free Hosting?

    For a school project, I'm dabbling with BOINC for a project. Would BOINC be an unfair use of my free hosting account? My main worry is that it could transmit files and folders that are over a gigabyte in size, and that might brush up against the limits for a free account.

    Can't Create New Database but I'm Not at Maximum!

Using the mysql_* commands I can successfully access the table and display the information as desired. However, I'm trying to look into PDO and currently am attempting to convert the code...

    Boru - SQL Down since April 6th - Boru Maintenance Complete?

    Anything I do that uses SQL doesn't work. PhpMyAdmin now requires a username and password to log in. I don't even know what they want. I've tried the most logical stuff for it (my email address, "shawntc", as well as my database login name). According to, Boru's fine but...
