Patch, Or Your Solid State Drives Roll Over And Die More about Printer Friendly

Expiration dates for computer drives? That’s what a line of HP solid-state drives are facing as the variable for their uptime counter is running out. When it does, the drive “expires” and, well, no more data storage for you!

There are a series of stages in the evolution of a software developer as they master their art, and one of those stages comes in understanding that while they may have a handle on the abstracted world presented by their development environment they perhaps haven’t considered the moments in which the real computer that lives behind it intrudes. Think of the first time you saw an SQL injection attack on a website, for example, or the moment you realised that a variable type is linked to the physical constraints of the number of memory locations it has reserved for it. So people who write software surround themselves with an armoury of things they watch out for as they code, and thus endeavour to produce software less likely to break. Firmly in that arena is the size of the variables you use and what will happen when that limit is reached.

Sometimes though even developers that should know better get it wrong, and this week has brought an unfortunate example for the enterprise wing of the hardware giant HP. Their manufacturer has notified them that certain models of solid-state disk drives supplied in enterprise storage systems contain an unfortunate bug, in which they stop working after 32,768 hours of uptime. That’s a familiar number to anyone working with base-2 numbers and hints at a 16-bit signed integer in use to log the hours of uptime. When it rolls over the value will then be negative and, rather than the drive believing itself to be in a renewed flush of youth, it will instead stop working.

Small Step Forward More about Printer Friendly

Welcome to "Remake" my highly configurable content based theming system for RavenNuke V2.5 (RN) "Remake" is not about the RN files I edited - that was a one-time thing just to make them compatible with "Remake". Now my attention can be directed at RN integration.

This is not RavenNuke Version 3 or Raven CMS. What it is though is a theming system designed to provide responsive RavenNuke themes. Along the way, I had to edit a lot of the RavenNuke V2.5 core files and modules to meet my goal. I had to make them HTML5, CSS3 compliant as well as responsive.

I have created something new that will have to grow and mature to be truly worthwhile. It is my hope that by releasing “Remake” to the public as BETA release candidate 1 that you will help me reach my final goal. And that is to have a fully integrated theming system for RavenNuke V2.5 or V3 or Raven CMS.  I'm sure that with the dedicated devotion that Neralex has Raven CMS will be reality.  Then I may have to readdress my goals.

In the future files will change because nothing is ever released in a perfect form. It takes a lot of committed and dedicated people to makes things better. I do hope that the finger-pointers and trolls will stay out of the mix. Please post and let me know what needs to change and if it is within the goals I am going to include below, I will work hard to make it happen.


-- Full administration integration.
-- Able to access the themes and make changes on the fly.
-- Having the ability to add content to the theme.
-- Theme creation.

It is available for download without registration but you will need to register to post.  You can contact me via the Feedback form on my site without registering. Download here: under the "Remake" download topic.

I would like to take a moment to recognize someone who we all owe a big round of applause to.  I was deeply concerned when the development of RavenNuke stopped. But then one day someone came along and picked it back up, brushed it off, and  jump started the development once again. It's amazing what this guy has done with it. RavenNuke is back with the release of 2.52 PHP7 version and we all owe a big thanks to neralex for his dedication to this project.  I am now seeing a lot of old timers coming back to the forums and showing a renewed interest.  I'm sure with time RavenNuke CMS will be hot once again.

The Very Best 4 (Active) CSS Lint Tools More about Printer Friendly

Linting tools help improve the code quality and optimize it for better performance. Linting tools have sets of defined rules to verify the code, without actually executing the code. Web designers often overlook the CSS code quality and unstructured coding style. As the product grows, this can create a real mess and usually results in a lot of difficulty finding and fixing the issues. You will find many articles with lists of CSS linting tools, but unfortunately most of the tools are no longer available. Hence, this post talks about the 4 best ACTIVE CSS linting tools which you can leverage to validate and optimize your CSS code. Enjoy!

CSS Grid Layout More about Printer Friendly

southern writes:  

CSS Grid Layout is the most powerful layout system available in CSS. It is a 2-dimensional system, meaning it can handle both columns and rows, unlike flexbox which is largely a 1-dimensional system. You work with Grid Layout by applying CSS rules both to a parent element (which becomes the Grid Container) and to that elements children (which become Grid Items).
