    Headstand Consulting
    I've been working in the computer industry for 15 years, doing everything from Technical Writing, Project & Product Management, Web Development, and Programming. Over the years I have worked extensively with a variety of database platforms and on multiple Operating Systems. Despite the "Project Manager" title, I've always been hands-on, often taking on some of the more complex projects. In early 2010, I made the jump to full-fledged Developer, working in Java and C#.NET.

    I got involved with IPB in 2007, when a friend of mine started his own site and was looking for a programmer. I taught myself PHP and IPB, and by early 2008 I started accepting requests for custom modifications. In May 2010, I quit my job and moved full-time into consulting, with the majority of my work being IPB-related.

    All of my clients are long-term projects, some of them corporate. My clients look to me not only for development, but because I also have product management experience, I can often help them take a basic, not yet fully-formed idea and expand it into an actual application or project. I have worked with every IPS component available, as well as developed many custom applications.
    Please note that:
    My rates are hourly only. I am not currently accepting any fixed-price projects, although I will happily provide you with an estimate. I am primarily interested in long-term, ongoing projects. I prefer to build a relationship with my clients, rather than delivering a single plugin and walking away.

    ​Would be nice if I got notifications from here, but I don't.  I wish I knew why. Sorry.
    Anyway, I am just confirming that it is fixed. I got an email a minute ago and it opened immediately with no problems. Tabbed between windows and had no issues. ** applause **

    The more I use it, the more I think it's distracting. At first I was like... ooooo, pretty.... but now I find I can't focus on the content properly. I'm not sure if this is just an adjustment thing or if I just really can't read this way. Leaning toward the latter.
    But I wanted so badly to like it. :(

    And after it finally opened, I was reading it, got a Facebook notification in the browser, which took "focus" away from my Outlook... so when I tried to scroll down, Outlook froze again.

    This is still happening. I just got a digest from IPS about 2 seconds ago, opened it, and now my Outlook is totally frozen.
    Immediate notifications seem to be OK.

    Also, it looks a little off when viewing a forum that has both sub-forums and topics. The difference between the 2 layouts (one on top of the other) is a little jarring. 
  7. HeadStand added a post in a topic: TV Shows   

    I watched the first 3 seasons of Game of Thrones but then got annoyed with it because they made too many changes from the books and the books are always better.
    Currently watching: SVU (I am just addicted to that), Bones, Brooklyn Nine Nine, and Gotham. Gotham is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

    More info: this is actually so bad that once the email is open, if I switch to another window and then try to switch back to Outlook, it freezes again.

    Email notifications are killing my Outlook
    When I try to open an email notification received from this site, Microsoft Outlook locks up completely and becomes unresponsive. It eventually opens, but it takes well over 3 minutes.
    This did not happen last week. I still have some emails in my inbox that I received last week and I can open those with no issues. Any emails I received today are killing me.

    Just for kicks and giggles, I hit Add Bug again. And then there were 3.

    Attachments staying in editor
    Just reported another bug and I noticed this issue. When I go to "Create New Bug", the editor is showing 2 images that I attached to other bugs on Sunday. I deleted them from the editor with my last bug report, but they're still here! I just can't get rid of them permanently.
    See attached.

    Not getting notifications from this site
    At all. Not a one. No daily digests for topics, nothing about comments on bugs that I posted. Zip, zilch, nada.
    Checked my notification settings ,it should be fine. Checked my spam filters, should also be fine.

    Couple of questions:
    1. Can you please clarify the following:
    So far, every email template I've checked does use {lang=""}, so I'm a little confused here as to what we're supposed to do (or not do).
    2. When creating my extension (following the instructions in the auto-generated file), my notification options are disabled. In other words, when I go to "Notification Settings" in my dropdown menu, the toggles for Inline and Email are disabled with a message that reads "The Administrator has disabled this option from being toggled." How do I prevent that from happening? I don't see any examples in the other applications. I did find an additional element called "editable" that should seem to do the trick, but when I add it to my extension, it has no effect.

    Due to a death in the family, I have been out of the office for the past several days. I am still catching up on my emails, PMs, and support topics, so please do not PM me if I have been "ignoring" you. I know it may seem that way, but please bear with me as I get back on schedule. Thanks.

    That free BB code table mod you wrote is a hundred times better than the one that cost $20...
