I'll definitely be buying this album in the near future. I listened to the previews on Itunes, and really enjoy what I hear. The sound puts me in mind of Bjork, Natalie Merchant, The Cranberries.... all of which I love. After watching your tutorials for years, I can finally give back a little lol.  Thanks Justin

The quicker people learn that it's not about "which sounds better", but rather it's about "which one is best for "this song"", the quicker they will advance in their ability to control tone, and their recording mastery. The wrong rig can kill a song if it's not geared toward it. These "which has the best tone" videos are a joke.

That negative critique of the video aside, WOW at the playing involved. Nothing negative to be said there for sure lol.

+Ole Aass I think it was you that referred me to this. Do you have any idea? I've not heard anything from anyone on there regarding the mentoring, and it's been quite a while. Just curious

Every where I go on the net to try and learn Php, I see comments about how the tutorial is all wrong, and especially when regarding web forms and updating database with the inputs. It's always someone saying that it's a poor example and "not secure" against hackers and ect.... Where can I find some tutorials that want to teach people the actual right way of doing things from the start, rather than bad habits? This is starting to tick me off.

I am in search of a mentor/friend who would be up to helping me with Php, possibly by putting a project together even. Preferably, I'd like their location to be in the USA. I am most familiar with doing things the PDO way, so someone in that nature would be great. If not no worries, and perhaps I can share my little knowledge on the subject with someone who isn't familiar with it.

Any takers? Serious replies only please.

Anyone interested in a little side project? I need a javascript image slider that pulls images and titles from an rss feed. The images appear as the large images in the slider, and the titles appear as the pagination links that show which image is being displayed at the time. 

Piece of cake right? Hit me up for more info, and your quotes.

Just curious, but how many of you out there use services such as Odesk.com, that allow you to apply and bid on jobs posted on their website? And if so, what are your experiences with them. Feedback?

You make a very valid point there I'll have to admit. The middle man enforcement probably isn't really such a bad thing, and the escrow style account setup is more of a blessing than anything. Thanks again for getting things in the clear for me. +Joachim Larsen

Why does installing an IDE sound like such a intimidating task? Should it be, or is my brain making a mountain out of a mole hill?

+Robert Fisher IDEs are hard to integrate with other IDE platforms but each platform supports just about every language there is.  JetBrains is now in the process of adding TextMate bundle support to their IDE's (I requested that feature on their issue tracker a while back).  That will be really cool because Sublime Text and Notepad++ (and TextMate, obviously) can also utilize the TextMate bundle format.  

Other than that I don't see how the IDE precludes you from using the simpler tools you already have.  I use SourceTree and the Terminal instead of IntelliJ's built-in VCS and console, just because I like them better.  Sometimes I work in TextMate 2 or MacVim.  They all work perfectly together.  As long as another developer on the same project isn't creating a super complex build configuration in Eclipse there aren't any interoperability concerns.

I agree there is a learning curve associated with IDEs, but it is well worth it in most cases.  I guess what I do see happening is sometimes people are using an IDE and they never bother to learn or use its features -- so then there's no point; they would be better off with something lighter weight that starts faster and doesn't use up so many resources.

Randy Cramer's +1's are the things they like, agree with, or want to recommend.
I had a very positive experience with this business. My son was screened at school by an optometrist who diagnosed him for needing some glasses. I went to the Woody Willimams Vision Center and was very pleased with their timely service, and ability to diagnose the prescription for my son's glasses on the first try with no problems. The frames and lenses were made on the spot, and I was out the door within an hour with one very happy son who could see the world in a whole new way. I couldn't imagine anyone having a better experience anywhere.

Terrible customer service, half cooked crust, and ridiculous wait time for the food, and they are not honest about their deals or specials. I called in, asked about the specials, and they quoted buy any pizza get one for free. I said okay, I'd like the taco then. I show up, and they only had one pizza. I call and ask where my other one was, and they say, Oh sorry, you have to "ask" for the special. I say I did, but regardless, if you say you have a buy one get one free, and "I buy one", did I not indeed buy the special? The dude on the phone tells me sorry and to have a good night and hangs up. I would some this up in one word with "thieves". They aren't honorable, and are not worthy of a dollar.

I'm going to add to what's already been said, but I'm afraid I can't be unique about it. Namely because I've had the exact same issues. The Customer Service is Terrible! It takes forever and a day to get anything done, and regardless of what you do or say, you are getting some sort of sales pitch about something you didn't ask to hear about, no matter what way you choose to contact them. Hold time when calling in is no less than 10 to 20 minutes every time I've called. My service kept stopping on my internet, and I had the misfortune of having to call in for about a month straight to figure out what was going on. FINALLY, they sent a service man out to my house to see what was going on. Turns out the line had a bad connection at the pole. The guy they sent out was really nice, but he looked to be about 60 - 70 years old, God bless his pea-pickin little heart! He showed up in a van that wasn't a Time Warner man, so it was likely a sub-contractor that they were paying peanuts to do the work cheaply for them. He climbed up the pole, and his little knees were just a knocking away, and he was scared to death. I left him to go about his business, thinking he would be okay. I got a knock on the door about 30 mins later from him asking me to come help him out, and hold the ladder. I kinda felt it coming and obliged because I felt bad for him, and feared for his safety. He never should have been sent out alone anyways. Rule of thumb when working with heights is to always have a buddy. Poor guy! I called in recently, seeking information (1 simple question) about adding a bundle to my service since I only have internet through them. I simply wanted to know whether or not if I ordered cable, would I be able to use it on more than one Tv for the quoted price, or if there were additional charges for each room. I inquired about this using their chat tool on the website. Well wouldn't you know it, it takes about 2 or three minutes in between each response you get from the agent, and rather than answer my one simple question, he proceeded to ask me a dozen questions about my account. What's you telephone number.., so I give it and 2 minutes go by, what's your address... I give it and 2 mins go by, what's your Name on account... and 2 mins go by, and then... what's your SS#'s last four digits... Finally at this point I'd had it, and gave him an ear full, stating that I wanted one question answered, and my account info was irrelevant to it. Instead of just answering my simple sales question, he continued to demand my info. Well... I now have my phone and cable through someone else do to this guy thinking I owed him half a nights worth of my precious time, just to get a simple question answered. I fell behind on a payment once, and they stalked my phone for days, always during regular work hours. When I got a moment, I was understanding and gave them a call to let them know the money was coming, and that I just didn't get a draw off the job I was doing yet. I made payment arrangements with them that we both agreed on, and all was "well", according to them. Well, wouldn't you know it, I continued to receive calls from them, at least 4 times a day, for the next week, asking me to call in and make a payment arrangement, though I had already done it. I called in and complained about it, demanding they take note of the payment arrangement I'd made, and to quit calling already. The lady stated that there was nothing she could do about it, and though I'd already made a payment arrangement, they were still going to call and ask me to set up "a payment arrangement".... What the...! Overall, I'd have to say it's some of the worst service I've ever gotten out of a company in general. Unfortunately where I live, there isn't a better alternative. When working, the actual internet connection itself, is pretty good. It's the only thing they have going for them, and if it weren't for that, I doubt they would exist as a business in general. Trumped the market, so they do whatever type of thing, if you get my drift. Nothing new I suppose.
