Authorize.net using PHP and curl

by jcroson In reply to pcnorb's Rants 'N Raves

<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">I needed a method to collect donations from patrons to the museum website that involved something a little less that what we offered before, PayPal. Not that I don't like the idea of PayPal, mind you, but it requires that the user create an account if they haven't got one, and that is a pain in the ***.

Wow, it's been awhile since I've posted...

by jcroson In reply to pcnorb's Rants 'N Raves

Much has been going on in my life. My wife had foot surgery, which is good and bad. Good because when we go on walks with the pooch [<--new puppy, black lab] she won't experience pain anymore. Bad because she is stuck in the house while I'm at work for 2 months and is going nuts.

I've been screwing around with more PHP and MySQL and want to do more! I like it, Mikey, I really do!

New job!!!

by jcroson In reply to pcnorb's Rants 'N Raves

<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Got a new job at techWorks as a Tecnology Architect. I am STOKED! Can't wait to start.

I will be a hired-tech-gun for 10-15 clients. They call, I respond and repair/deploy/whatever-is-nesessary. This will be a great experience for me, and I'm sure I'll be introduced to many new things. I'm pretty much a sponge for technology, so this will suit me fine.

Database updates

by jcroson In reply to pcnorb's Rants 'N Raves

I needed a method to update a database application across a WAN, and found that I could do this with my Linux firewalls, and Windows batch scripting. The topology is this:

Win2k Svr -> Linux FW -> Internet <- Linux FW <- WinNT Svr Win2k Svr batch file: "%filename%"
set status=
goto :eof

:eof
end

Linux FW Script: /tmp/mydb
mail -s "Mydb transfer results." hostmaster@domain.org < /tmp/mydb rm -f<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://pcnorb.blogspot.com/2005_10_01_pcnorb_archive.html#112835757147553132">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Windows Automated Maintenance Scripts

by jcroson In reply to pcnorb's Rants 'N Raves

<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">I had a need to automate a number of tasks for remote administration, and used Windows WShell, since I am fairly comfortable with VB/VBA.

This is an automated defragmentation script that uses dirms.exe, a defragmentation utility found here.

Automated CD Burning using AutoMount

by jcroson In reply to pcnorb's Rants 'N Raves

<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">One recent project for my employer was to create a headless (pc with no keyboard, mouse, or monitor) CD burner that automagically detects an inserted flash card, renames the files, and burns them to a CD along with a Flash Projector application that plays the images on PC's or Mac's.

My solution was to use the AutoFS automounter daemon, and shell scripts. Much of the scripting ideas borrowed</div><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://pcnorb.blogspot.com/2006_01_01_pcnorb_archive.html#113660917633988183">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Output MS Publisher to PRN files

by jcroson In reply to pcnorb's Rants 'N Raves

I needed a method to programatically check a series of directories for .pub and save as .prn for later batch processing to .pdf through Distiller. There were hundreds, and I just couldn't make myself do it by hand... After a little Googling, I found some useful code snippets from MS, and Google groups.
