This customer is someone important in it's department. He could "move some threads" to fire me from his department's site maintenance. I needed this money... until now. But I'm now I'm too near of the end, and I got much more power on this department, as many other people is or have been customer of mine, and all them are more than satisfied.

Side note: FrankBlack work on TinyEditor and GiJoe's Fastest CacheHack have been critical on latest successes

Next year there will be elections, and the current council has lots of enemies. Ending this crap so they have no arguments to complain will give me a very strong position for new jobs, as I'll have 100% rate on succesfully finished projects, and the only person that can say anything bad about me is the one with most enemies.

I could have fired them a year ago but I needed the money. Now that I don't need the money, I am too near the end.

But I don't like this situation at all.

Anyway, thanks for reading, madFish

This is not XOOPS related, but honestly I have to talk about that.

I have a customer that is bad for my health. Not joking.

This customer contacted me to build their University Research Group two and a half years ago. I was younger, less confident, a bit noob, and needed the money.

I accepted.

I have had three different contact people. Only the last one has given me the full, correct information. They spend three months on every review. The attitude has always been nasty, terrible.

Was a public institution, bill was blocked, price was not re-negociable. Finally I got the money, but at this moment I'd give it back and delete all files form the hard drive.

Every time I put to work on this crap I feel sick, tired and angry. Every communication with this customer is preceded by a night of bad sleep.

I'm pushing myself to finish this, but the more I do the worse I feel. See no clear end to this crap.

Sorry for the rant... I just needed.

I work in the line of fire with XOOPS, and I have to say this is what customers want:

· WYSIWYG editor
· A friendly control panel (people likes EXM edition)
· More powerful image manager

Where is CBB bugtracker?

I found a bug in CBB 3.08 config options, and I can't find it's bugtracker.

This is the bug:

file: xoops_version.php, line 217

$imagesets = array("default"=>"Default", "hsyong"=>"hsyong");

should be:

$imagesets = array("default"=>"default", "hsyong"=>"hsyong");

Everything in lowercases, incluidng the word "default" twice. You can't imagine the mess it causes with the forum buttons when your server is case-sensitive.

The reasons I chose XOOPS the first time are not valid anymore, but these are the strongest points when compared to Drupal and Xaraya:

· Smarty template engine. Templates are easy to understand, can be edited in Dreamweaver design mode, yet the system is very powerful. This template system is used by meny other systems, so the community around it is huge.
· Solid groups & permissions system.
· It's inner arquitecture is easy to understand
· AMAZING DEBUG CONSOLE. Drupal doesn't have any and it's a terrible drawback.
· A solution for multiple language sites a bit complicated to use, but it works fine. Most systems can't say it.

Latest example of what I did using XOOPS:

How the hell did you write a piece of stuff compatible with all these CMS?

Thanks, but the code works fine. I managed to give thumbs proper permissions using "umask" PHP function, but it still doesn't work.

Plesk, file permissions via PHP and a pain in the ass

Hi everyone.

First thing first. Plesk is a PAIN IN THE ASS.

OK, now for the business. I'm using RMSoft's RMDirectory to show some books in this site:

www.anince.es

I upload images. Images load fine. Thumbs are created. Thumbs are created fine.

Then, the pain in the ass.

These are the permissions of the thumbs created by RMDirectory:

600

What does it mean?

It means that only the PHP script is able to read this file. The browser itslef is not allowed to see the image. I have a thumbnail that can't be seen by anyone, EVEN ME. I can't even download it via FTP, or change permissions same way. I don't know whether I can use "chmod" PHP function. I go to Plesk control panel, try to change permissions from it's file manager, guess what? Permission denied.

I have only seen this kind of absessive paranoia in Plesk control panels. So, WTF can I do to change the permissions of MY OWN THUMBNAILS?
