SmartFTP This action cannot be completed

I’m using SmartFTP 4 with TopStyle (Web/ HTML editor) 3. Every now and then, SmartFTP will freeze up and the error message “Server Busy: This action cannot be completed because the “” program is not responding.

Internet Explorer 9 Black Screen

I don’t know what’s causing this (maybe a plug-in such as the LastPass add-on?), but every now and then (for example, when I visit my banking or another site), my Internet Explorer 9 screen goes black.

1&1 Domain Registration Sucks!

I’ve worked with multiple registrars over the years (GoDaddy, NameCheap, Fabulous.com just to name a few), and never have I encountered such a convoluted billing policy.

Chrome cookie management

I like Chrome, in fact I prefer it to Firefox at this point, since the Firefox 10.0.2 update it keeps crashing on me, especially when I “view source.” Google’s Chrome web browser loads fast and runs great, and doesn’t appear to take up too much memory. Here’s my beef with Chrome though – the cookie …

What is C:\Windows\SysWOW64\GPhotos.scr?

My security software, Online Armor, is asking me whether I should allow the following file to run: Google Photos Screensaver, at C:\Windows\SysWOW64\GPhotos.scr. I don’t actually use any Google Photos or Google Photos Screensaver, so I’ve blocked this file. My PC continues to run fine, but I thought I’d check here just in case my PC is …

PHP – How to select one random number from array?

Okay, I don’t know why I’m having such a difficult time with this. I’ve got an array with non-consecutive numbers (12,14,15), and I’m simply trying to pick one random number out of the bunch. Here’s what I’ve got: <?php$array = array(12,14,15);$rand_keys = array_rand($array, 3);echo $array[$rand_keys[0]] . “\n”;?> But the result is never random, it’s always …
