  1. Spambot observation: Do spambots only hit the first form?

    A few years ago, I set up a web page that contained several different forms. I don't really know much about how spambots work (does anyone?) but, after a few weeks, it started taking hits - the usual junk about mail order brides and marketing advice, etc. The strange thing was that the spam only ever came in on the very first form - that is, via the form that appeared uppermost in the HTML - and it happened with too much predictability and regularity for it to just be coincidence.

  2. Transferring videos from Google Drive to YouTube

    You can transfer videos from Google Drive to YouTube by sending them as email attachments, see, for example: https://www.oxhow.com/upload-youtube...m-google-drive. But when you use this method for transferring videos to YouTube, you cannot upload files larger than 25MB, since the maximum file size of an email attachment is this size.

  4. The case against animated page flipping publications

    During a recent meeting I was asked to explore the possibility of presenting existing PDF newsletters in a flipping book format. You know the sort; online interactive magazine layouts presented as a 3D book where pages are navigated to and animated in a realistic flipping motion. This wasn't new ground for me as I'd already completed the exercise (and dismissed them in favour of PDF) 5 years ago, but the topic had raised its head again, and this time it was interesting to relook at things from a ...

  5. Messing with Javascript

    Hey all,
    I've been fiddling with JavaScript and decided to share a neat little thing (its completely useless).

    Finished Code
    Code:
    console.log(+[[-~[]<<~[]][+[]]+[]][+[]][++[[]][+[]]+[+[]]]); //Prints 8
    Now for the break down -

    Pre-note - I use this function while playing with variables. It outputs the value and type of a variable. (The counter is to force the developer console to display each seperately)
    Code:
    var counter = 0;
