Sub Today

Perkins Image

I’m off today writing the Perkins Technology Application for the district.  This should be my last period off (except I will miss 3rd Period May 21st).  Here’s an outline of what you should be doing:

  • KeyBoarding/Microsoft Office:  Start Excel, EX A-4 to Ex A-11.  If you need more time on your Newsletter, do that AFTER the new Excel work.
  • AP Java:  Continue on with the Ant Lab.  The Gridworld Case Study booklets are behind the whiteboard in front of Gideon.  Ask the sub to get them please.
  • Advanced Web:  Please finish up on the XML section.  The media player will work in BOTH BROWSERS as long as you have NO SPACES inside the attributes.  Take a look BELOW AT THE LAST BLOG POST and notice that there are no spaces after the ? inside the URLs.
  • Web Design:  Please continue with Style Sheets and do the best you can.  Ask others near you to help.  I will be back to answer questions tomorrow.

Have a great day,
Mr. Eliot

Adv. Web AS16: phpBB Install


We’re going to install phpBB shortly.  Like WordPress, the phpBB authors recently came out with a 3.0 version of the software.  To install that, take a look at my OLD phpBB message board HERE for install instructions.  Note that this time, we are going to install a “BZip 2” archive (.bz2 file).  BZIP is a different, but similar program to GZIP that we have used many times.  The command to use it in Putty is:

bzip2 whatever.tar     (create a .bz2 archive from the .tar file)
bunzip2 whatever.bz2     (get the .tar file out of a .bz2 archive)
