One of the things that kinda bugged me about the LiveZilla Windows App was the inability to know what’s going on without being in the actual app. Simply put, there are no visual or audible notifications except for chat requests.
Today I finally decided to figure out a better way to monitor my web traffic… Events! Continue reading Know When Visitors Arrive Using LiveZilla Windows App

I am a long-time user of LiveZilla, primarily due to the availability of a Windows app. Aside from some minor quirks here and there, my biggest complaint is not being able to find the version in the Windows/web management user-interface. When I’m looking for the version, it’s usually to see if I’m running a relatively current release (fairly common administrator task). Continue reading How to Determine Your LiveZilla Version Number
So, I was working on a new theme for an OpenCart store I manage. Since creating it from scratch, I decided to adhere to suggestions from Bootstrap, Google and others that advise loading content-blocking scripts at the bottom of the page instead of in the <head>.
Of course, I ran into the same problem that probably has you reading this article.
How the hell am I supposed to use ‘jQuery’ or ‘$’ before the library is loaded?! Short answer, you can’t. You can however get around the problem with this solution. Continue reading Use jQuery Without Loading Scripts in Document
I regularly use remote access tools such as LogMeIn, RemoteDesktop and TeamViewer to provide remote support for clients all over the country. Since Windows 8 arrived, getting the Windows username from clients has become increasingly difficult. More often than not I hear “I don’t know” or “my PIN is …”, neither of which provide insight to the actual username.

So over the past few months I have been working more with media applications (graphics, video, etc). During this time I noticed my aging Dell Inspiron N7110 laptop was starting to lag as if I was out of memory. Continue reading Windows 10 Memory Usage Capped at Fifty Percent (50%)
A quick run-through to show you how to adjust the volume of individual Windows applications…
- Right-click your “Volume” icon and select “Open Volume Mixer”

- Continue adjusting the volume for other applications

I realize LiveZilla has their own suggestion for performing input field validation, but here is my spin on the process.
Create `validation.php` in your main LiveZilla folder with the following code (update input field IDs accordingly)… Continue reading LiveZilla Input Field Validation (eg: Require Email)
I wrote a post yesterday about testing your internet connectivity using a Windows batch file, but since I cannot leave well-enough alone, I decided to keep working on it.
A few things to keep in mind…
- The line “set ESC=” ends with a non-printable ASCII ESC character (ASCII 27; Hexadecimal 0x1B) that may not be visible in your browser. Editors like Notepad++ show non-printable characters.
- If you add “hosts” you should also add “names” – hosts entry will be displayed otherwise.
- hosts index should start at zero with no sequence gaps
- The “for” loop’s “end” should match count(hosts + 1)
