Video professionals used to say that you could always tell when new video effects were invented because they would invariably show up in car dealer commercials, typically piled one on top of another in a desperate attempt to attract attention.  I'm starting to think that widgets are the real esta...
Last night I was trying to set up a free WordPress blog on a new domain. I followed the instructions, created a MySQL database, and uploaded the WordPress files.  When I ran the installer that comes with WordPress, I got the following message:"Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL...
