One or two of the taxonomy columns are too wide

It happens that a column in your main display look too wide. Say you use three columns, one may be real large and two are the normal size (1/3rd of the screen.)

In general this happens because you have a URL in one of your description. (If the URL is in the title, I strongly advice that you move it to the description.) Then the description shows up as wide as that URL. Long URLs will have a real bad effect making the column much wider.

There are two ways to solve the problem:

  1. Create a tiny URL, although tiny URLs may still be too big, it may help
  2. Change the settings of the ...

Adding a Table of Contents to a view with parameters

It is possible to add a Table of Contents to a view that has to accept parameters1.

In this case, you do not want to use the solution of including the view in a node (with the Insert view filter, see Can't find doc_table_of_contents_for_views to include!) because then you lose the capability of assigning different parameters to your view (although, if the number of parameters is relatively

  • 1. Note that you need to write some PHP code. If you do not know how to do that, I'm afraid that this won't work for you. You may want to check out the Table of Contents and Insert view solution instead.

Your cell phone is hackable...

This is a quite interesting article which I thought I should share and keep a copy of!

Most of us, even if we can determine whether a piece of software (or hardware!) can be hacked, we just do not have the time to spend on testing each device we use to ensure that no hackers will be able to get it. We rely on the manufacturer to do that work for us.

This article shows that even though all manufacturers have protections, all are vulnerable! And that means your data is vulnerable on your cell phones... Hope this does not scare you too much!

Note by the way that those people who have plenty of ...

Example of Cute Menu usage

Example of usage

The Turn Watcher website, a commercial product by Made to Order Software, now uses the CuteMenu module in two places:

  1. The main top-bar menu: Turn Watcher
  2. The User Guide navigation menu: Turn Watcher User Guide
  3. The main top-bar menu: Linux Geek Page
  4. The main top-bar menu: Sacramento Copiers
  5. The main top-bar menu MORE...: Order Made!®

In Turn Watcher, I removed the default background from the top CuteMenu items. The top bar menu is pretty standard and shows as a nice drop-down, the User Guide has two cool features: it is right aligned ...

Pointers and proper exception handling...

Many C++ programmers have been C programmers first. Therefore, a lot of times, you find statements written this way:

ptr = new type;

if(ptr == 0) // handle error...

This is a C programmer that does not yet know that the new operator will throw an error if the allocation cannot happen. This makes a lot of sense, but what does that mean to the C++ programmer?
