mySQL Counter

Ok the last flat-file run script on my site has been converted to mySQL.   It’s like a religion… everything must be converted! :P

Basically the site should load faster, according to what people tell me.   It is more notable when there are more people on at once, where it might actually cause the site to slow down.

New Fort Wars Section

Fort Wars being one of my more popular creations of course deserved a specially designed section, rather than something I could throw together in a few minutes.   The theme took me a bit to come up with - I wasn’t sure what I was going for really, but I think I like how it is now.

Anyways here it is.   Fort Wars

Everything should be fine - do let me know if you find any problems though.

Math Tools

Distance Formula  

        I had a I got sick of doing the distance formula over and over again on my math homework today.    Each problem took nearly 5 minutes to go through and find the distance between each point.   I decided why not make a script that simply does it for you. Instead of punching in formulas again and again into your calculator, all you have to do is type in the points you want. The entire script took less than 5 minutes to write. :P

Check it out - I call it the Distance Formula Tool (duh).   Nothing fancy, but very helpful nonetheless.

Midpoint Formula

        Not long after I breezed through the distance formula problems on my math homework, I ran into midpoint formula problems.   A small tweak with the Distance Formula Tool  and what do you know - I finished the Midpoint Formula Tool!

Heading into mySQL

        Okay, I give.   Using text files to store my stuff just isn’t going to work.   Guess I’ll learn mySQL.   It’s not hard actually - but then alot less portable that’s for sure.

        Pages done currently are:

Graphing Calculator Finalized

        Ok - I can’t quite get all the points to show on the hyperbola one, but I think it’s more that there aren’t enough grid sizes (so just increase gridsize).   When you change the numbers around, it works fine.

        But I’m done with it - spent a tad too much time on that.   Don’t even know why I made it.   It works though.   Hope it comes of use for somebody.

Now on with somethin else! (maybe get back on WiB I dunno)
