Ya know, I am certainly not a fan of the democrats but the republicans these days are just as sickening to me. What ever happened to the days when being republican was actually about politics? You know those days when republican meant less federal government and democrat meant more federal government. 

Now its more like, republicans want more religious invasions and democrats want more federal invasion. 

I was once told by a republican friend that New York was the worst of the worst states to live in because it was the most democrat controlled state and it had very little freedoms when compared to other states. 

Well today I went to a graduation in the lovely republican state of Kansas to see my girlfriends son graduate high school. I was so appalled by what I saw that my girlfriend basically wished she hadn't brought me, and unwelcomed me to the graduation party. So instead I am stuck sitting in a hotel. 

And why? Because I couldn't keep my mouth shut about how incredibly offensive it is to have a Luthran Minister say prayers TWICE during the graduation ceremony. In fact the whole ceremony was done in a rather religious fashion in which acolytes preceded the graduates and formed a progression line for them to walk through..... much like is done in church before a priests goes to the alter. 

Well I made statements about it. How could I not.... I find such behavior appalling. This is america! I find it appalling to have prayers in school. I am Christian but how offensive is it that they brought a Lutheran minister... what if I was Catholic? Protestant? Episcopalian? Atheist?

This is why we don't have a mix in church and state.... this is why we are not suppose to have prayers in school. It offends some at the expense of others.

Now my girlfriend pissed at me.... and I am pissed at the whole situation.... and I just don't know whats going to happen because of it. .... 

Ya know this wouldn't even be an issue if America wasn't on such a screwed up path!

What ever happened to those good old perl/cgi scripts :( 

Ya know, I am a web designer by trade. I love designing websites. Truly I love it. I love the advancements in web design, I love creating new looks and feels, and I love working with opensource software......

At least I used to love working with opensource software. 

Most of you probably won't  remember this, but I remember a day long before php existed... the days of perl/cgi. 

Now back when I was first learning to design, I LOVED grabbing new opensource per/cgi web softwares and coding designs for them. 

I didn't have to know a lick of perl/cgi to modify the html. I could simply search through the .cgi files for specific html elements to file the correct files to modify things. 

I modified ubb forum WAY back before php days when they were still perl/chi. I modified dating scripts, membership softweares, CMS softwares, and countless other things. 

And then along came php.... 

In the early days, my experiences with php were fine. I did the exact same things I did wth perl/cgi. I just searched for the html within the files. 

As time has gone on however, and php has gotten more and more sophisticated, this has become harder and harder to do. No longer can I just ssearhc for code, because these days the html itself is generated from the php and may not exist in any sort of recognizable manner when searching the code. 

Often times the best you can do is create templates in a limited way because you really can't modify the core code without knowing php. 

I am working on a script right now where the php generates most of the classes and ids from a "language" file, so finding the correct <div> to move on a core file, is virtually impossible.

Find a flaw in the following statement:

The only way to reach love is by following forgiveness.

Can't find the flaw? Exactly, Christianity is without flaw. 

What other religion teaches the absolute fact that the only way to love is through forgiveness? None? Big Surprise!

Seeing the problem with rejecting Christianity yet?You are rejecting forgiveness and the belief in forgiveness and the belief that the only way to love is through forgiveness. 

God IS love. The only way to love is through the son of love, forgiveness. 

Its not a complex thought. 

What is mind boggling to me is how many seem to reject this and say "thats not the only way to reach love". 

If you do not accept Christ into your heart, you cannot reach God. 
If you do not accept forgiveness in your heart, you cannot reach love. 

Get it yet? Keep denying Him.....

Any PHP people out there that can give me a hand??

I was given the following code and told it needs to be modified to user my tables/colums/rows data. 

I have NO FSCKING CLE HOW TO DO THIS...

The database is properly configured but I need to hook to the table/rows which is where I am stuck.

The table name is profiles, rows are id and NickName

Any help at all would be great. 

<?php
if($Username_And_Password_Match)
{
   $_SESSION['userid'] = $users['id'];
$ses = null; // Return null if user is not logged in 
if(isset($_SESSION['userid']))

  if($_SESSION['userid'] != null) // Here null is guest 
  { 
   $ses=$_SESSION['userid']; //LOOK, now userid will be passed to FreiChat 
  } 

 }
if(!function_exists("FreiChat_get_hash"))

function freichatx_get_hash($ses){
       if(is_file("/path/to/hardcode.php")){
               require /path/to/hardcode.php";
               $temp_id =  $ses . $uid;
               return md5($temp_id);
       }
       else
       {
               echo "<script>alert('module freichatx says: hardcode.php file not
found!');</script>";
       }
       return 0;
}
}
?>

I finally got this completely working. If anyone ever needs to know how to do this let me know I have the exact instructions on connecting freichat to boonex dolphin. 

I have freichat v 10.0 working with boonex dolphin 7.1.5 

This is working to tie the chat into the dolphin user database, to get the avatar working with member avatars, and to get profiles work with member usernames instead of ID's. 

Feel free to contact me if you ever need to do this.

Anyone know anything about setting up ftp servers? 

I need to set up a (win) ftp server that allows an anonymous account to list directory contents but not download the files contained within said directory? 

Is this even possible? It seems the the list opnios and read options are all paired together making it impossible to grand list permissions without also granting read permissions? Is this accurate? If so is there a work around?

I actually am NOT against Polyamory or polygamy and why any conservative would be MORE against this than homosexual marriage is beyond me. 

Although I am using generalization when I say this, I think the majority of conservatives get their beliefs from religion. I can't think of any major religion that outlaws, condemns, or otherwise makes a sin out of polygamy but I can say they do with homosexuality. 

Sometimes, conservatives just don't make any logical sense to me. 
Life is full of delicious ironies, especially if you know where to look for them. Consider the debate over SB 129, Georgia's proposed "Religious Freedom Restoration Act." At this point, the entire argument is over one sentence recently added to the bill by the House Judiciary Committee. That sentence reads: "Courts have consistently held that government has a fundamental, overriding interest in eradicating discrimination." As long as that s...

Also thought I would point out, that is not the only time polygamy is mentioned in the bible. 

If brothers are living together and one of them dies without a son, his widow must not marry outside the family. Her husband's brother shall take her and marry her and fulfill the duty of a brother-in-law to her. - Deuteronomy 25:5

That passage HEAVILY implies polygamy as a normal activity between windowed in-laws without children.

Top reasons I now use bing just as much as google:

#1 Google has increasingly removed results, blacklisted some torrent search sites, and otherwise hinders the ability to search for torrents. Bing delivers top results and indexed torrent sites.

#2 Google censors both images and video's to filter out certain types of adult content, even within adult searches. Content that is otherwise legal yet distasteful. Bing seemingly does this a WHOLE LOT LESS than that of google. 

#3 google will censor content based on its "offensiveness" and is coming out with a new algorithm to "determine" what is "fact" and what is "not fact" and will deliver results based on what IT BELIEVES to be fact (https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2015/03/01/breaking-google-gives-new-meaning-to-orwellian/). Bing has no such algorithm as of this point. 

I imagine the more google makes these kinds of moves, the more people will use the alternatives.

A monopoly can only exist as long as the people actually want the product or service being offered, when they don't want your product or service, you lose the market no matter how big you think you are.

+Kyle Willenburg the fact you find all the points to  be stupid, when all the points are about censorship - pretty much tells me you welcome censorship where as I do not.

Thats a personal choice and I personally choose not to give up on freedom of speech and those who hinder freedom of speech in my opinion, are basically tossing out the US constitution, and that is not something I can accept.
