Announcements / Re: Upgraded to PHP 5.4
October 15, 2012, 07:46:53 AM
I think I've fixed the main page errors. My code had some obsolete functions in it that I needed to update. Mainly, check that a variable exists before using it. For the error you were getting, this page explains that it's been removed in php 5.4 As this was removed from PHP since it's a large security issue (since it's basically a replacement for the horribly insecure "register_globals") it's not something I'm likely to revert. I'd suggest you find a new poll plugin that doesn't rely on this, or see if there's an updated version. That said, there are some suggestions in the comments on that page for using extract() to replace the functionality, but I'd really advise against that (for the aforementioned security issues.) I do apologize for the trouble though. Hopefully it won't be too big of a pain to replace. If you have more trouble too, just let me know.

The server has been upgraded to PHP 5.4.6 (from 5.3.15) and other minor software bits were upgraded as well. As usual, if you run into problems, please let me know.

Okay, back and it looks like nothing broke. Yay!

I'm going on a cruise this week, and won't have any form of internet access until I return on the 7th of October. As such, please don't be offended if I don't respond to email or other issues until then. :-)

Edit: Back now, all good!

The pictures aren't bad, but a photo gallery alone fits much better at places like picasa or flickr, and isn't really something that needs the type of hosting I provide. I'm afraid I still have to say no at this point.

I'm sorry, but there's really not enough here for your application to be considered. Your FA account only has 8 images and that's simply not enough of a portfolio to judge. Please don't let that discourage you though. Keep up with your art, work on your comic, and post pages on FA and elsewhere in the community. If you're still at it next year and have more stuff to showcase, feel free to come back and reapply. Best of luck to you! :-)

I'm sorry, but as I mentioned when you emailed me, an application will need to provide more examples than that. There's only one photo for the photography section, two pages for the comic you mention, etc. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying no, but one of the criteria here is to see some evidence that you're committed to whatever project(s) you're asking for space for. That generally means a decent corpus of prior work. If you have more, please let us see it.

I need to... and it is on my to-do list. Sorry I haven't gotten to it yet. Please keep bugging me about it though, I need the prodding.

Sorry I'm slow to respond... been busy IRL this past week. Anyway, okay, good enough for me, you're in! You should have an email with instructions shortly. Please read/follow the initial setup instructions there, and if you have questions (or don't get it) let me know.

I look through some of the comics you have up, and definitely got a chuckle or two. It looks like you've been keeping fairly regular updates since last fall, so that's good too. The comicpress setup is quiet functional as well. Is it something you installed/managed yourself, or was it provided by your current host? I ask because there's no automation of that sort here, and I need to make sure you're able to install/setup whatever you need for your site if you move here.

I've once again upgraded the system software. PHP is now 5.3.13 and apache is at 2.2.22 now. There were a few dozen other packages updated as well, and some obsolete packages were removed (mostly perl modules.) As always, if you run into any problems,  just let me know.

Yeah, any regular html, php, perl, python, ruby, or just about any other cgi language that works under a linux environment.
