For the most part the location of where certain scripts load on a page will have virtually zero impact on a broad band connection. That depends on the size of the scripts. Some sites have more size in the scripts than in the actual page, and by putting the scripts in the proper place, the page will...

Still pretty damned useless to put javascript into a homepage link in a browser. But I bet there are security reasons why most decent browsers prevent it.

To put this all in perspective, this "posting.php" page of phpBB gets five A's, two F's, a B, a C, and an N/A on the ten categories, with an overall grade of D. At the same time, the page loaded very quickly for me. Most of these type of speed tests are based upon access using a 28k dialu...

Just stay completely away from ActiveX. Most other browsers do not even support it. And not supported on other operating systems so using it is excluding quite a few people. Fortunately, ActiveX is usually used only by obscure, rarely used sites or by hackers trying to gain access and information wh...

You could use this instead...

It identifies quite a few things and you don't need a browser plugin so it works with any browser.

You will still need to use the free_result for Mysqli if you want to efficiently release memory used by any returned resultsets from queries.

function foo1() { $res = mysql_query($sql) . . . return } function foo2() { $res = mysql_query($sql) . . . return } . . . So the unused result-resource after a function call keeps building up in memory or gets overwritten on the next query ? It depends upon the version of PHP. Some versions of PHP ...

Re: rand() or mt_rand()... which is better to use?
