Well, I broke it.

The main weatherangel.com server is going to be down for a while, until I set up the scripts to show the hurricane tracks on a newer CMS. It was bound to happen – I updated PHP, and well – that set the tone for the issues littering the site. Trust me, you don’t want to […]

Proxies, you’re doing it wrong!

If you do a search for User Agent Strings, you will find that there is a VAST number that use the following string: “Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; InfoPath.1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; MS-RTC LM 8; .NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.30729)” While normally, I wouldn’t think this is that big […]
