Cd&: The kind of things we get now as developers struggle trying to deploy GUI client server apps to the web with a browser interface. I end up moving a lot of them to other TAs because the problems are in the way the underlying app works. There is a big trend to this
kind of conversion and the Web Dev TA is right in the middle of it, with some of the best multi-skilled experts anywhere.

Artistic side of web site development
Cd7: Good collaboration, a great comment by webwoman (I think that should have got the points) and a link to a site where the use of CSS is absolutely beautiful. It is the kind of Q I love because it gets the experts involved in teaching, not just posting possible solutions.

Cd& on pepsichris:"The lastest newbie to break through in Web Dev by getting his first Cert on the site in the Web Dev TA. Chris will work out fine. He does get it." Coming from an old curmudgeon like Cd&, high praise indeed.

DX, as he's fondly known, joined Experts Exchange in August, 2000, and quickly established himself as one of EE's more eclectic members, and became a Mod in November, 2002.
After a brief hiatus for university work and members of the opposite sex, he returned as a Moderator a month ago with a special project in mind: he is heading up the daunting task of cleaning up the Previously Asked Questions -- the PAQ -- with the idea of retaining their indivuduality and sense of community, and at the same time making them cleaner and more valuable to those members who use the search system. We're glad to have him back.

|My mother-in-law called me the other day to ask me what that "clicking sound" coming from the back of her computer was. She said it wasn't coming from her hard drive -- but she wondered what it might be.|
There are two fans, and usually the clicking sound is a sign that one of them is about to give up the ghost. One of the fans is in your power supply -- it will probably keep on cliking until the power supply stops ticking, at which point you replace it and move on (don't even think about fixing it). I've seen power supplies click for months, or even years, but it can get annoying. On the other hand, if it's your CPU fan, your problem can become a lot more serious a lot more quickly.
If you hear a strange clicking, shut down your computer, and wait until it has completely cooled down. Then take the cover off, turn the computer on, and see if you can figure out which fan is making all the racket. If it's the little one on your CPU, shut the computer down and go visit your local computer store NOW, because if you fry your CPU, you'll be visiting them later and spending a lot more money.
And don't think for a minute that running your computer with the cover off will take the place of the fan. The case is designed to pull air through in a given pattern, and without it, the air flow won't be correct, and you can overheat your mother board (or something else) pretty quickly.
|ameba has spent a lot of time at Experts Exchange, and during his tenure has come up with all kinds of interesting and useful ways of looking at the site. His latest project is a list of all of the Certified Experts, which he updates daily at his site. We'll be publishing the list of new certificates awarded every issue; what follows is those earned from April 3 through April 16. Thanks for your great work, ameba!|
|At the bottom of each question near the new comment text box is a link that says "Split Points". Clicking it changes the view of the page to allow you to assign a portion of the points on the question to the separate Expert(s) that provided you with valuable information. Also, select one of the Experts as the "Accepted" comment. The other Experts will be marked "Assisted" automatically. The grade you assign applies to all the Experts you selected.|
