  1. if (isset($_POST['note'])) { $note = $_POST['note']; $author = $_POST['by']; $sql = "INSERT INTO notes SET note='$note', by='$author'"; if (@mysql_query($sql)) { echo 'News item has been added'; } else { echo 'Error adding the news item: ' . mysql_error() . ''; } } ?> You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'by='gjkgjfd'' at line 2 I really have no idea what the problem is. A form with a textarea and a text box submit to this page and it's the only code on the page, yet it's giving me this error. It's staring me right in the face but I just can't see it. Any help will be much appreciated.
  2. Thank you guys, much appreciated!
  3. Hey guys, I'm coming to the end of my Game Development course and for my Final Major Project (FMP) I have to create a small teaser trailer for a game. The entire game has to be my own ideas and everything has to be my own work. For my pre production phase of the project I am required to get several different types of research from different sources...and this is where I am hoping that you guys come in.

  4. You really should just do the highest you can do, Keep grinding away until you can do wildy. You'll fail some obstacles but the xp/ph will still be higher. The agility arena is xp isn't too bad, I mainly use it to just break the tediousness (real word?) of agility courses.

    I'd like a mixture. Updates, tutorials, hints & tips. Just so it's not the same over & over again.
  6. I really enjoyed doing quests, I have a quest cape sitting in my bank but Nomad is standing in my way. I have never really followed any of the story lines with any great depth but I just enjoy having having instructions in a game which in RuneScape is not easy to get. If your really not enjoying them, Tip it probably has the best guides around for every quest.
  7. I havne't got any messages in my in-game inbox or E-mail. I've been living at the fishing guild for a while and always see the bots about, there easily spotted but i've never botted. I'll send them a message. Thanks all.
  8. Oh wow, I didn't even notice that. This doesn't seem very fair as I haven't actually done anything wrong :/
  9. I have never botted and I don't plan to; is this what they do to botters? What happened to banning them?
  10. So I login and I plan to carry on from where I left off last time - getting 99 fishing. I'm not too far off, level 96. So I login, and whats that - Level 94?!?! Hmm, okay maybe i dreamt I got them levels; So i check the hiscore...Level 94. So then I check adventurers log...and look what I find. [hide][/hide] [hide][/hide] Anybody had anything similar to this happen to them? p.s; Sorry for the large images
  11. Booting up in safe mode still yields the same result. I've taken a photo of my screen to show you what it looks like. Warning, LARGE IMAGE!! Things i've tried; - A differnet monitor. - Taking the graphics card out, throughly cleaning the card & Port of dust - Booting in safe mode.
  12. Thanks for your reply. I'll be sure to try that but i'm not at home at the moment so I won't be able to try that just yet. I can see myself forking out for a new graphics card (it's been needing an upgrade for a while) so I guess this is fate telling me to get a move on. :)
  13. Okay, my computer was turned off as normal. When I booted it up, it shows the manufacturer screen at the beginning, the windows vista loading window, and then doesn't show anything else. The screen messes up and the picture looks like a magnet has been held next to the monitor (although this hasn't been done). I've tried another monitor and that doesn't work and the fact that it shows the manufactrer screen and loading windows makes me think it's something with the actual computer, possibly the graphics card. If I have to i'll buy a new graphics card, but is that the problem? Thanks in advance, Earpy.
  14. I prefer the more expensive rewards staying rarer. It gives people a reason to do them. If more people got things like third age, then clues would really become pointless.
  15. Hey, I'm looking for an active clan. I prefer a clan who socialise as well as events which are varied and not just the same thing over and over again. I live in the UK, so let me know. I'm online alot of the time so drop me a message. My PM is always on :)
  16. I totally don't understand what your trying to say? It sounds as if your saying that America is the only country that is having economic problems. If that's what your saying, you couldn't be more wrong. MMORPG based out of England? Jagex is based in Cambridge, England. Also, nobody is blaming anything on the economy. It's a discussion about how Jagex are coping. If you didn't mean what I thought you did, I apologise.
  17. I don't have a link, they announced it a while back and I seen on the Jagex Twitter page that they are still working on it. Wouldn't expect it any time soon though.
  18. It's not a USB stick. It doesn't connect to the computer in anyway. It's simply a small device with an screen which generates a number.
  19. I'm currently 29 runecrafting and looking to get 44. I currently have 2 choices. Fire runes using ring of duellings OR ZMI Altar. Which would be fastest? Thanks in advance.
  20. I've been trying alot of movie quotes such as "Do you feel lucky punk? Well, Do ya?" and "The names bond. James Bond." Nothing yet though, still gonna try more as I think of them.
  21. We all know that it's a tough time finically for most companies. However, it struck me with the talk of this Anti Hijack system that Jagex must be getting bit. Admittedly, Jagex has said they won't be profiting from this, not directly at least. Andrew said that most people quit after being hacked, and when someone quits, thats 1 less membership they'll be getting (assuming they were members). With this Anti Hijack system, it would make hacking / password scamming almost impossible (unless the user was INCREDIBLY careless) which means less people quitting as a direct result of being hacked. Also, Jagex have said they'll be introducing a name changing system. Personally, I think Jagex will charge for this to stop people changing there name all the time. It's a tough time for any company in the current economic climate, but it seems that Jagex are doing everything they can. What are your views on this?
  22. Thanks. After a quick google, it came back with results are a Linux Distro. Sorry if I didn't clear it up, but im looking to install Mac OS on the second partition.
  23. Hey guys. I'm currently trying to create a partition of my hard drive so that I am able to install a second OS. However, when I try and shrink my hard drive, it only lets me create a new partition with 23MB of space. I have over 100GB free on my hard drive, so I cannot understand why it wont let me use this space for a new partition. I am using Windows Vista 32-bit. Also, I have ran the 'Disk Defragmenter' and it made no difference. Thanks in advance for any help, Earpy.
