Re: Just Write about TXP: win an iPod Touch

Nice write up Stuart!

One comment confused me, however.

Files are stored in the database whilst images are uploaded to the “images” directory and information about them stored in the database.

Is that correct? I thought the files were stored in the file directory in the same way images are stored.

Thanks

Mike

I have no idea what I was thinking about there Mike. You think I would know wouldn’t you? Corrected.

Re: Just Write about TXP: win an iPod Touch

May I share a story of global commerce woes?

It goes like this: Dreamhost ordered the iPod in the US, got the merchant to ship the valued prize to me, and on the receiving end I today was charged with a mere 74.18 EUR in taxes, delivery charges and custom duties for the pleasure of being the lucky winner.

So buyer beware: If you happen to be the chosen one, your tax inquisitor may be after you, too.

Hmm. Maybe the iPod should be the second prize, then. First prize: we WON’T ship you an iPod.

I’ve too have had moments like that. :)

Re: Just Write about TXP: win an iPod Touch

Actually it did occur to me, it being a US model, whether you would be able to re-charge it on this side of the pond?

Nevermind. Textpattern is, and will always be, an expensive hobby.

I was able to charge my devices (netbook, iPhone etc.) last summer when I was in Italy – I just had to have one of these.

Hereis a short blurb on why I, a 17 year old, continuously use Textpattern to develop my sites. Skip to “The Nitty Gritty” paragraph. :)
