Hex Slideshow

This is totally and utterly pointless, but in case someone finds it interesting besides me, here’s a page I like to call “Hex Show”.

Hex Show

It does have some pretty neat JavaScript, and it’s not too complicated. Feel free to use, modify, or steal the code, just put my name on it if there’s enough of it to matter.

A Website in BASIC

So I’ve gotten a lot done on this website. It feels like I’m hammering nails with my head. What a tool! At least there’s a little bit of information on it out there, but google doesn’t like to actually find stuff about BASIC when I type in the word (it’s basically stuff about simplicity 🙂 ).

Programming a Website in BASIC

I’ve been given a new job, to program a website in BASIC. I feel like I’ve gone from using a motorized screw driver back to using a manual one by hand. I don’t even know BASIC, but I’m trying to learn it. Besides that, I have to learn exactly how http works, because I’ll have to do it all manually. It will be good to learn, but it’s going to be a challenge without the shortcuts that PHP has to offer. No cookie, or session handling. The only security will have to be coded by me.

I’m building a website that was previously in COBOL, and even though I don’t think moving to BASIC is a very big step, the previous program only allowed Internet Explorer.
