500 Internal Server Error

If anyone's web site has suddenly started reporting "500 internal server error" this may be due to an upgrade at Apache. Check your error log, via control Panel / Metrics, and you may likely find that your server is reporting an error in your .htaccess file. A strong candidate for this error is that...

Re: underground communication using seismic waves

sounds interesting, Jim. A couple of questions... 1. Do you have a feel for the attenuation in the system? For a magnetic system, we would relate the transmitter's magnetic moment to the received magnetic field strength. What is the equivalent in seismic terms? Would it be to relate the pressure lev...

FTP problems on Britiac2 and Britiac3

If anyone is having problems using FTP on either of BCA's servers, from about 2100 on Thurs 09 Sept - try switching your FTP client from passive to active mode.

Re: Studies on the Ellora & Ajanta Caves (India)

A wired camera might be better. You pay out the cable as the small child explores, and the small child can follow the cable to find its way home. Otherwise, dont you have small child lost in maze that no adult can enter?

Re: PHP DIO module

Have you checked the process has permission to create that directory? Well, I wondered about that, but this is Windows we're talking about, so can permissions be an issue? But I will try what you suggested. Although... perhaps permissions can be an issue after all? In an unrelated exercise, Im tryi...

Have you considered GD Graphics which is already install?
That thought occurred to me in the middle of the night. I tested it just now and ... yes... it works. So no need for Imagick.
