There used to be quite a few problems, when installing Drupal on GoDaddy's shared hosting. There is a lengthy discussion of the related issues. However, recently GoDaddy fixed a few most serious ones, in particular, they gave users permission to invoke MySQL "TABLE LOCK" command, which was the greatest problem of all.
Firefox is an open source cross-platform web browser, which supports latest standards and is very secure. If you don't have it yet, you can download it for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and others from here for free.

Luckily, there is an extension for Firefox, which gives you similar functionality. SpellBound works for Windows and Linux builds of Firefox. Multiple languages, including English, Russian, German and so on are supported. The version, found on the main site, actually doesn't support on the fly spellchecking, but if you download the latest development version, it will do it happily.

The problem with Flash 7 is that Google Analytics are not displayed properly with it - all t
I am quite disappointed with the knowledge demonstrated by wannabe C++ programmers today. Hardly anyone knows what
x##y preprocessor directives do, and only few can explain the danger in preprocessor macros with parameters. If the things keep going this way, in 5 years no one will know what
extern "C" means.
