... the chances to be hacked are close to 0…
Well going by the OP that’s at least one hacked, so better to be safe than sorry.
Sure, it’s enough to update the script… I just wanted to say to not panic, cuz isn’t necessary ;)

Old versions of timthumb open your WP blog to be exploited. The script only does a partial match on hostnames allowing hackers to upload and execute arbitrary PHP code in your timthumb cache directory.

Mark did a re-write called WordThumb: http://markmaunder.com/2011/a-secure-rewrite-of-timthumb-php-as-wordthumb/

Lack of broken screen effects here in the River.

I need to spice up some 404 pages and broken screen effects are great to use. So if anyone is dry on ideas for new files… take this one and run with it :)

The best 404 page I’ve seen in awhile is from Blizzard Entertainment: http://us.blizzard.com/404

This has really just turned into a tool fight.

However, Objective C and Java are great for developing on the mobile platform. It’s hard to not recognize that.

Apple doesn’t want Flash to run in their mobile web browser.

Why? They want apps in the app store. They want every app to go through their review process to ensure their customers that they are purchasing good, secure apps.

That doesn’t mean Flash is going to die. lol. Flash cs5 has an option to compile for an iPhone. So, you’ll still be able to use Flash to develop apps for iPhone/Pad… just not display in their mobile phone browser.

The amount of development time being put into the next generation of Flash/Flex products by Adobe is incredible. I don’t see Flash going away any time soon.

Also, Google has been working on a Flash spider to better index full Flash sites: http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2008/06/improved-flash-indexing.html

I don’t how a tool can die. Will the number 2 pencil die because of Photoshop? AND a lot of businesses still using IE6 . Flash is here to stay. :P

I got a Mac this past December and I love it, mainly to develop mobile apps for iPhone but decided to make the full switch-ah-roooo. I still have a PC and Linux box, which I still use for testing my own apps on but my Mac gets all the attention now :P

I still don’t think I could live without my PC and Linux boxes: the experience I gained while tinkering with the hardware and software was valuable later on in my career.

Flash isn’t slow on a Mac unless you were talking about Flash Player 9, ~a year ago. This is because of a memory performance issue that involved rendering system fonts. This issue was addressed a while ago.

Nothing is 100% and everything can be reversed engineered.

Just don’t be paranoid and get some work done!

I personally don’t care about the ‘nice’ comments. I take them as a pat on the back.

Digital Fortress by Dan Brown is a great read.

Ah Silver Fish!

I don’t have any real experience with SL but with C#. C# syntax is somewhat like Java and it’s really nice to work with.

If you’re curious SL uses a XAML layout markup file (.xaml ) can be used by “code-behind” code, written in any .NET language.

SL 2 ’s performance is very slow compared to FP 10 . I’m not sure about SL3 .

These graphs are from AdobeMAX 2008 where an independent company tested the GUI Rendering performances for both Mac/Pc. Again, these are from ‘08 and SilverLight 2:

*A few things here, if you look at the Mac benchmarks, you’ll see that Flash Player 9 is down in the dumps. This is because of a memory performance issue that involved rendering system fonts. This was a known issue and from what I heard, it has been addressed.
