Keeping up with JavaScript

JavaScript now is very different from what it was when it was created. It has undergone several significant changes over the years that have completely changed the best way of writing scripts. Even more rapid changes to the language are expected over coming years which will presumably have a similar impact. Writing your scripts using the most modern approach available will maximise the scripts useful life before it needs to be rewritten and will help to keep it separate from other scripts you may over time add to the same page.

    Clearing AddressHistory

    Your web browser stores those sites that have recently been visited in its history so as to make returning to them easier. While they will eventually drop off the list if you don’t return on a regular basis there may be other reasons why you might want to delete those entries from history sooner rather than later. Different browsers provide a different option for clearing the list.

        CombiningNetworks

        While just about all modern computer networks are set up using ethernet, there are some older computers still around which are set up to use different hardware for their networking. You can use computers that use different hardware on the same network provided that you have some way to connect them together.

          Save and Save As inWord

          The Save option in different programs do not all function the same way. What gets saved is not always just the latest version of the content of a file. Word is one obvious example of where the Save option works differently than many people might expect.

          Because the changes that you make to an already written file are generally a lot less than the entire file content programs can save your changes faster if the changes are all that they save. Many programs use this method of saving where the changes are just added to the end of the existing file rather than the entire file being rewritten. This has a couple of issues that can cause problems if you are not aware of them. Firstly it means that each time you save the file the file will get bigger and bigger even if all you did was to delete content. Secondly it has security issues if you make the file available to someone else since it is possible for them to actually access prior versions of your file.

              Sharing Drives andFolders

              When you network computers together you will not be able to gain all the benefits of doing so unless you provide some access to each computer’s hard drive from the other computers. Windows XP provides a Shared Documents folder which provides this access to some extent. In this article we look at how you can configure your computers to share whichever folders and files that you want to.

                Moving Your Site – Zero Downtime

                Eventually, if your web site is on the web for long enough, you will decide to move your site to a different web hosting provider either because your current provider lets you down or because your site has outgrown their service.

                Provided that you have your own domain name you will not need to have your site offline for even a second if you transfer your site by following the appropriate steps in the right order. The only thing that may make your visitors aware of the move is that you may want to disable their ability to post comments etc. to your site at its old location during the period that the move is taking place (if you don’t then those comments may be lost).

                  Is Your JavaScript showing its Age?

                  JavaScript has been around for quite a while and during that time it has changed so much as to be almost unrecognisable. If you have been writing JavaScript for some time than what you wrote when you started will be really starting to show its age. Here we look at some of the most antiquated code that really old JavaScript might have used that really needs to be rewritten to use more modern JavaScript.

                      Historical and Modern JavaScript

                      When I suggested that historical JavaScript is not worth learning (from a programming viewpoint not a history one) someone pointed out that just like an old car it still works and is therefore still worth learning. Here I take their analogy further and look at how many ways that the two are comparable and the one that makes the difference and therefore makes historical JavaScript not worth learning.

                        With having set up a number of separate pieces of calendar processing, they are all attached into the one script that you can download and use to display calendars on your own site.
