Sun, 24 Mar 2013 06:22:16 -0800Phantom of the Paradise bombed but was insanely popular in Winnipeg. Flash Gordon did poorly in North America but was a huge hit in the UK. I'm curious: have there been other movies that were relatively unsuccessful but had inexplicable pockets of success?
Fri, 29 Feb 2008 06:58:57 -0800I'd like to learn more about tripods. Whenever I visit a camera store or a store site, or Manfrotto's site, I'm bewildered, and I'd rather not be. Instead of asking for recommendations based on my criteria (as in previous questions here and here), I'd like to understand tripods (and heads) as a category so that I can figure out for myself what I need for whatever it is I have in mind, whether it's my digital SLR, a MiniDV video camera, or even a small apochromatic refractor or spotting scope. Are there any resources online, or any books, that I can start with?
Thu, 22 Jun 2006 13:55:50 -0800Apache on OS X is giving me some trouble. It's been working fine for years on previous Macs, but now I can't load my own user account site folder (/~username/) on my Intel iMac, which arrived last week -- I'm getting a 403. When I load the site (computername.local/~username/) in a browser, I get the 403 page; meanwhile, the error message in the log (/var/log/httpd/error_log) reads as follows:
Thu, 03 Mar 2005 19:33:51 -0800Half the blogs I read have links to the Blogads survey today, which reminds me that I've been meaning to do a readership survey for one of my sites. There are a plethora of web sites offering survey tools (if this page from SurveyMonkey, which is doing the Blogads survey, is any indication); which one(s) would you recommend? (Free or very nearly so is preferred, natch.)
Tue, 17 Aug 2004 10:26:46 -0800I'd like to know the number of athletes from each country competing at the Olympics -- basically, the size of each country's delegation -- for a little project I'm working on. The Athens 2004 site and the news orgs' sites I've checked do not provide such information, from what I can tell.
Thu, 04 Mar 2004 12:10:00 -0800Two questions in one, relating to a new web site I'm working on. First: is there any knowledge base software out there that is reasonably simple to configure? What I have in mind could conceivably be done through Movable Type or a wiki, but the kbases I've seen are a better fit. Suggestions? And second: my hosting provider does not register .info domain names -- can anyone recommend a .info registrar?
