.au Domains

Those domains that end with a two character code are country specific while those that have a top level domain of between three and six characters are international. When you are targetting your pages just to people in a specific country then it makes sense to use the top level domain for that country. Depending on which country it is you may then find that there may or may not be a second level domain structure established within that country. Most of the larger countries have a second level structure like this (the most obvious exception being .us sunce the majority of Americans seem to prefer targetting an international market rather than a local one).

The .au top level domain belongs to Australia and there are only a small number of second level domains for use for targetting your site at Australians. This article lists those that exist and also identifies the criteria that you need to meet to obtain a domain within each of the SLDs.

    Changing StylesheetAttributes

    The attributes set in your style sheet completely over ride any of the old deprecated HTML attributes that used to serve the same purpose. This means that if you define your page appearance properly then attempting to reference the deprecated HTML attributes from your JavaScript will have no effect.

      It Wasn’t Broken UntilThey Fixed it

      Not all program updates are improvements. There have been a couple of occasions where I have installed a program update only to find that one of the features I got the program for in the first place no longer works.

                Last Day oftheMonth

                While most months have a constant length the same is not true of February. When we need the last day of February we can either write our own code that applies the leap year rules (assuming that you know them) or use a couple of lines of simple JavaScript that can easily get the last day of any month regardless of how many days the month has in the specified year.

                    Numeric test

                    Here we look at three alternative ways to validate that a variable contains a number. Each of these is shorter than the many alternate ways that I have seen people use where they use functions not intended for this purpose.

                      Lotto Picker

                      When I last rewrrten my lotto picker example code I removed the bias from the “random sort” by replacing it with a shuffle method. This means that the code uses even more Array methods in combination than it did before (including creating the shuffle Array method). I have also made the full script a lot less obtrusive and dramatically simplified the validations.
