I've made a couple of lengthy posts over the last couple of days and have noticed a few bugs with the editor. Nothing show-stopping but some make the editing process more difficult or some content vanish! (I added the 'nerd' Emoji in one of my posts, it saved without errors but all subquent content in the post was missing!). Rather than me add them here, is there a tracker somewhere so they can be categorised, verified and dealt with? If there is, I'm happy to post detailed steps, screenshots, even animated gifs if that gives whoever will be looking at …

The recently active list for admins and mods (team) appears broken, at least regarding myself. Currently it says I was last active 4 days ago, yet I've been on and active every day for the last 4 days (including posting and admin duties - the infractions list even shows my last infraction given 2 days ago for example). Odd...

Bugs are, and always have been, a fact of life for the software developer. However, if Microsoft researcher Andrew Begel has his way, they could be a thing of the past. Last month a paper entitled '[Using Psycho-Physiological Measures to Assess Task Difficulty in Software Development](http://research.microsoft.com/apps/pubs/default.aspx?id=209878)' was published which Begel co-authored. This week, Begel spoke at the annual Microsoft Research Faculty Summit on the subject. Basically what Begel and his research colleagues are saying is that the existing work looking at dealing with programming errors tends to focus on the "post hoc identification of correlations between bug fixes and code" …

Hey guys. I'm new to this site. I just wanted someone to look over the code I have so far for a hash table that operates on linear probing. I don't have anyone to really check these things for me as my professor is always busy. Can anyone tell me if there are any bugs, errors, typos, etc? This code compiles, but has I think 2 warnings. Please give me some feedback if you have the chance. It would be much appreciated. #include <iostream> using namespace std; const int tablesize=1001; int lcounter=0;//# of linear probes int qcounter=0;//# of quadratic probes …

So my laptop is about 3 years old and getting due for replacement, its recenetly gone wonky too but i want to see if its worth taking in. So after starting up it seemed like a had a stuck key as my password field was just filled up. I shut it down, fixed the key and rebooted it, it gets to the Gateway sign and then goes black and makes loud beeps. Also for while it would flash greenish rapidly, I figured was just a loose connection as I'd adjust the screen and it would stop, meant to take it …

in the Forum: XML, XSLT and XPATH and I maker a named entity like [CODE]&quot;[/CODE] (ampersand-name-semicolon) it comes out as raw, like it should. if I make a code block and insert a *numeric* entity in the format ampersand-#-number-semicolon it comes out converted to html. apparently the php function htmlspecialchars is not being called when displaying what's in the code block. I would not be surprised if this is happening in other types of code editors throughout the site as well. let's try this one: [CODE]= ampersand-#-61-semicolon[/CODE] nope, this one fails too. also, I can understand what CODE is, but …

Hello everyone, First of all I would like to introduce myself, I'm tom and I spend hours developing websites. Right, down to the serious stuff... I have made a nice little AJAX based commenting system, it shows the 5 latest posts, so, when a user posts a comment the list auto updates showing the latest 5 comments (including the new post the user just made). Here is the problem. It works beautifully as expected in firefox, opera, safari and chrome, however, when it comes to IE... Nothing! If I make the new comments that are refreshed a simple page that …

Hi, I will try describe the algorithm. I have a website, with articles. Administrator can upload image files and then put them into the article. Sometimes it can happen that admin uploads file but does not save the article and closes the browser. So the file isn’t needed anymore - it is a trash in the server. To solve this - I made a table, which contains filenames together with article id’s. When admin saves the article - the filenamaes of images to that article are also added to database table. So now we can make a function which deletes …

When I was studying computer programming in college many years ago, I didn't imagine that our work could impact lives, particularly in a negative way. We've heard reports (mostly true) of death, dying, and destruction as a result of software problems, such as the time a plane flew right into a mountain due to the users not being informed of changes to the software. (For more interesting tidbits, check out the check out this [URL="http://www.cs.tau.ac.il/~nachumd/horror.html"]Software Horror Stories page[/URL].) We can never predict what kind of bizarre things will happen as a result of software bugs, but today's news is certainly …

I have noticed that since the upgrade, when previewing the text that we are about to post, the previewed text is smaller than it should making the number of words per line misleading and at times hard to read. Also in this same preview area, code boxes with a line of code that's really long makes the code box go off screen where as when the post is submitted the code wraps. Again annoying as editing a post is the only way to find the correct display result intended. I'm using Opera 9.63 and suspect it's a css bug. Can …

Safari 4.0.3 is out now and available for [URL="http://support.apple.com/downloads/Safari_4_0_3"]download[/URL] from Apple, for both Mac OS X and Windows operating systems. While there are the usual claims of making things more stable when using third party plugins and in particular for handling the HTML 5 video tag, it is with regards to security strengthening and bug squishing that the real interest lies. So with the latest update Apple says it has fixed issues which impacted upon users logging in to the iWork.com document sharing service, an Apple service embarrassingly enough and I should have said prevented users logging on to be …

Steven Sinofsky, the Senior Vice President for the Microsoft Windows and Windows Live Engineering Group, in an attempt to quell a beta tester rebellion over a perceived lack of feedback concerning bug reporting has made an astonishing confession: Windows 7 has at least 2000 bugs. Sinofsky [URL="http://blogs.msdn.com/e7/archive/2009/02/25/feedback-and-engineering-windows-7.aspx"]states[/URL] that more than a million people installed and used the [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry3766.html"]Windows 7 beta[/URL] in the first few weeks of release, and admits it has been a lot of work coping with the feedback.

Look, I know it is fashionable to knock Internet Explorer. It is an easy target, and I will admit to aiming my own fair of kicks over the years. But when Beta software gets slated for having some bugs, well isn't that just taking things a little too far? That was my impression when I first saw some of the [URL="http://www.zdnet.com.au/news/software/soa/Users-report-IE8-Beta-2-issues/0,130061733,339291706,00.htm"]reports[/URL] breaking online, but as I dug deeper I realised there was more to this story than meets the eye. The problems go further than just the usual software bugs, it would seem, and instead look like they could actually …

Linus Torvalds, creator of the Linux kernel, posted a [URL="http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/706950"]nasty smackdown [/URL]on security nerds and their obsession with security in the gmane.linux.kernel newsgroup. Linus is referring to security professionals who feel that security should be the only focus for bug fixes and patches. His argument is that all bugs are equally important and security bugs are simply a part of the greater whole. Linus often posts his irritation with security [I]experts[/I] in this newsgroup. In his most scathing reprimand of the security-focused, he states the following: [INDENT][COLOR="Green"]Security people are often the black-and-white kind of people that I can't stand. I …

The hackers are of course, anonymous, which is perhaps part of the fun of doing such a project. They say that they're going to expose a new bug every day for a whole month, just like the other "month of bugs" projects have done (for example: Month of Apple Bugs and Month of Kernel bugs). As much fun as it seems, I'm skeptical on how successful and how much of an impact this project is going to have on MySpace. One point that I …
