Thoroughly disappointed by iPhone OS 4.0. And here I thought it would be something "magical".

What part did you find disappointing? Reading live blog updates on the keynote this morning, I was thoroughly impressed. It seems as if Apple has addressed a lot of the issues I had with the software, and addressed them right! The only major disappointment I'm suffering from is that my iPod Touch 2G won't get the multitasking.

Genius.

<- NOTE: Contains violent language. Nothing you wouldn't hear on TV, though...

As some of you might've noticed, I've been absent for a week or two. Our internet connection broke down, and I've been busy with school and personal stuff. I'm going to Portugal next week so I won't show up much next week either...

Only problem is that this page doesn't have a feed by default so I would have to use an online service to create the RSS feed except that's impossible when the page can only be viewed through logins which the RSS service will not be able to understand and as a result, it will start making an RSS feed of the login page.

I hadn't thought of that actually. But the problem of not being able to access data unless you log in is what the issue for me.

Although, using RSS for this task of mine leads me to the question of whether it is possible using nothing more than HTML & Javascript to find a piece of text on the data page (ignoring the issues of logging in) and display this on another page as a "dynamic" element if that makes sense. boltbait.hmm.png

I do hope I haven't confused anyone.

If you could be a bit more specific: is this your page? Or another page? Instead of JavaScript, PHP works great with file includes.

im missing a soft brush eraser in PDN. :)

Not sure whether you know that reducing the Transparency - Alpha

setting of your Primary color in the Colors window will reduce the strength

of the Eraser tool's action.

Also, using Clone Stamp with the anchor point set on a 100% Alpha layer

with the Transparency - Alpha setting of your Primary color lowered

gives an even better soft eraser brush emulation

I've been reading about file includes but all I want to include is a set of numbers from a page, not the entire page itself, can this be done or am I barking up the wrong tree?

EDIT: To clarify, let's say I was insane about you and I wanted to display the number of posts you have "live" on another web page how would I have a "live embed" of this particular data using HTML & Javascript?

If the page you are making has access to javascript, it is easy. Remind me later this weekend and I'll send you the codes.

In order to "celebrate" the new forums, here is an unfunny joke which is half-baked as standard. boltbait.big_smile.png

When Rick Brewster takes up knitting as a hobby, what does he end up renaming Paint.NET to?

Paint.Knit boltbait.lol.pngboltbait.lol.png (Funny eh?)

Now then, how likely is it that Rick would ever take up knitting as a hobby and end up renaming PDN?

I found that quite amusing, actually. The thing is, all these kids at my school continually say "knit" or "nit" instead of not.

For example, my band director said, "Who plans on helping at the xxxx event next Friday?" A random kid raised his hand and said, "I will." While the teacher was writing down his name, he shouts nit. And for some reason everyone at our school finds this act quite hilarious. The band room erupted in laughter, of course.

ahhh! Ye olde band days. I played a tuba in high school. Even marched in the 2004 memorial day parade in washington d.c.(that was the year they opened the wwII memorial). I was a fat kid carrying an 80 pound silver sousaphone. I got heat exhaustion that day too puked my guts up in a parking lot lmao!

Here's how I've been following you...

<HTML>
<BODY>
<script language="JavaScript">
text="";
// create a request object so that we can connect to the web service
req = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP");
if (req) 
{
   // setup a callback function for when the XML has been loaded
   req.onreadystatechange = processStateChange;
   // specify the URL of the web service
   req.open("GET", "http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/user/48773-vista/", true);
   // go get the data
   req.send();
}

function processStateChange()
{
   // is the XML ready for use?
   if (req.readyState == 4) {
       text = req.responseText;
// find your post count
document.write(text.substr(text.indexOf("posts'>")+7,6));
document.write("<BR>\n");
   }
}
</script>
</BODY>
</HTML>

You need to be logged in for this to work... since guests can not view profiles. Works in IE (the standard browser for the world). If you want this to work in other browsers, you'll have to ask someone else how to modify it for that broken browser.

EDIT: OK, technically, this shouldn't work at all due to cross-site security risks. A proper solution would be to do the "get" and the processing server side.
