  1. Aloha, Okay, so I have this script working: http://www.triviacafe.com/stamps/fonttest-working.php However, there are a FEW things I need help with. 1) I need it to use a multiline box, instead of an input box. a) I need the GD Exported image to MIRROR that of the typed text. So line breaks MUST appear where they are in the multiline box. Example: GD Output: This is a Test Content in the Multiline box: ____________________________________ |This is a |Test | | | | |____________________________________ B) Each individual line must be centered. That means calculating the width of the font (which will be variable, detemined by a dropdown box, I'll add that in myself) and dividing it by half of something or other... I don't understand the math, I'm a designer. That's why I'm here. If anyone can help me, without just spouting a bunch of numbers at me and expecting me to understand, I would greatly appreciate it. If you need to email me, my addy is msfn [at] phazm dot net
  2. I would have an example, but I cannot for the life of my find the site that I saw yesterday :-/ Basically, I want to have a real-time update of a selected font, as you type. I am somewhat familiar with the GD Library + PHP, I mostly need help interfacing it with whatever non-ServerSide language (probably JS) I need to. And if anyone can find the font site that has a text box, and as you type, it outputs an image with that text in it, I would REALLY appreciate it! e: Found it! http://www.abstractfonts.com/font/11912 Anyone know how I can make something like that? Thanks,
  3. As the title and sub-title indicate, I have set up a webcam at home that has an option of sending me an email if it detects motion. However, it requires an smtp server. I have tried two "free smtp" programs (that set up a local smtp server) but they do not work. Does anyone know of a public-access smtp server? I will only be sending like one email a day, really, if that. fake edit: ****, it's been forever since I've logged in! +1 to me for remembering my password!
  4. can't open 'cmd' ++

    okay, start -> run -> cmd: opens the console box, black bg, with nothing writting in it, and gives me this error: |[u]16 Bit MS-DOS Subsystem[/u]__________________| |C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.com |The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction. |CS:055c IP: 0102 OP:ff ff 83 3e 51 Choose 'Close' to teminate the application | [ Close ] [ Ignore ] |_____...| Ignore and close both close it. Then, when I open 'command': I can "dir" and "ipconfig" but I cannot 'ping', it gives me an identical error to the one above. Any ideas?
  5. I have an email forwarder from another domain and I would like it to be moved to a separate folder. I can't find a "where the to/cc/bcc line includes" rule, but it would help a lot... can anyone tell be how to do this?
  6. Adding Socks5 to my computer?

    I want to add a socks5 server on my compueter, so I can proxy my IP to this one from afar... how would I go about doing that?
  7. Well, I just figured out that you can set the tolerance if you right-click and make work path (I was making it from the path tab) and that helped a lot, by setting it to 0.5pixels. However, because I need it in EPS form, I need to export it from photoshop to EPS, which means I han't have a thumbnail preview... Any workarounds?
  8. I'm having a bit of trouble. I have taken over 70 images, cut them out in photoshop (using erase, not a path) and then brought them into illustrator, and seved them out as .EPS. My problem is, when I put them into quark, they are transparent in thre preview, but whe nI print it out on paper or PDF, it makes the background of the box white. The only way I can seem to get around this is to make a clippign path with illustrator or photoshop, then use the quark option for using the path to clip. Is there any way in illustrator to automatically create a path around a raster object, and keep the path clean? I can create a work path in photoshop simple enough, but the path is never any good. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you, Jon Hughes, Linx Tech
  9. Boot Disk Problem

    MMkay, I switched my ribbon IDE cables with my new pretty round IDE cables, and that is when my problem began. I boot my comp, it goes through the POST all fine, then when it gets to loading windows, it gives me an error, I will paraphrase. "BOOT DISK FAILURE. INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER" I tried everythign I could to get that to go away, but alas, it would not. Then I found a VERY TEMPORARY SOLUTION!!!! (:-P) I put in my xp disk, changed boot order to read cd before my sata drive, and then when it says "press any key to boot from disk" I do NOTHING. annd let it boot to my harddrive, and it WORKS! Anyone know why my system would need to have the xp disk in to boot? Very strange, considering I am not actually using the cd. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
