Here is my second Syntax Highlighter Brush attempt. This one was far more complex than the last Arduino / Wiring Brush I made. There are still a few things that need to be worked out such as multiline comments and there seems to be a bug in WordPress / Syntax Highlighter that adds a semicolon in various places where one didn’t exist before. I noticed this because the semicolon is used to denote comments in AutoIT and after adding that section of code to the highlighter I was able to easily spot this flaw. I plan to do more work on the expressions used and colors for various themes but for now this is pretty good, much better than using the VB Brush as I was before. I used Scite script editor as a rough guide for the color scheme and if your using the default or another light theme the colors should be near identical. One exception is the Preprocessor and Special Keywords which I just lumped together in the same category since there
I finally got around to making a custom plugin also called a “brush” for Syntax Highlighter that properly highlights the Arduino language called Wiring. I haven’t fully worked out the colors for the different themes but so far the colors I have chosen look nice with the Default theme and the Emacs theme. I’m going to work on the colors more and make specific colors for each theme in the future. Check out the before and after pictures, the before is using standard C++ code and the after is using the custom wiring code. I couldn’t find solid instruction on how to install these brushes so I just figured out a way to make it work on my own and I like the way this works so I don’ t plan to change it. First download the shBrushWiring.js file that I have attached to this post. shBrushWiring Next upload the file to the “/wp-content/plugins/syntaxhighlighter/third-party-brushes/” folder. Now we need to edit a few files, you can either do this directly in WordPress by going to Plugins and
Well not all of the projects are completed on the site but they are at least 90% or even 100% with the possibility of added features in the future. http://ittechtools.net/ Is the new site, I currently have 1 completed project up for download. I haven’t decided yet weather to keep the source code here or post it there. I would like to keep most of it here and link it back to some AutoIT tutorials since that’s the language its programmed in. Most of the programs listed on the site are 80-90% complete but I just need to polish them up and package them into an installer. I have some other larger projects I am working on including a simple server / service monitoring tool and a more complex monitoring solution. Comments are welcome on all of the posts so please if you have a suggestion for a current piece of software or an idea for a program just drop me a comment and let me know what you think.
Yes you can upgrade a weak old Core Duo iMac into a decent performing modern machine that will support the latest Mac OS and if your interested, allow you to program for the iPhone and iPad. Note: this isn’t for the faint hearted and later when I have more time I will revise this posting with more detail and I will break out the images from the gallery or add captions to the gallery photos to give a better understanding of what is going on in each photo. The first thing you need to do it open up the iMac, I really wish I would have read how to do this before attempting it on my own because there are two metal levers inside of the front bezel which you need to press to allow the bezel to release. I thought it was just being stubborn and since the metal is so thin I ended up bending it and eventually had to remove the metal framework to get the bezel to fit flush. This is the
I’m working on some site design changes so if you see something that looks off just try refreshing the page or waiting a while and revisiting the site.

I finally finished the article I started on locking down IIS to prevent the current round of IIS hacks that are going around. They seem to be spreading like wildfire and even well known companies are getting hacked left and right. This can all be prevented with the right security measures which I cover in the following article. http://www.davidorlo.com/?p=695
New theme, New theme, New theme, I just cant make up my mind on a temporary theme. I plan to make my own theme based on several themes that I like but in the meantime I need something to run on the site that will be similar to my custom made theme so the content doesn’t look out of place once it is built. In addition to the theme dilemma I have another issue which is content organization. I just cant make up my mind on categories, sub categories and posts. I am used to working with Joomla and Xoops which are more article / news driven and not blog style like WordPress. The issues I keep running into are that my content is better suited on a CMS (Content Management System) website but instead I just keep using and tweaking a blog site to run like an article / news driven site. This obviously introduces issues such as categories, sub categories and posts, I will explain each in more detail and include why I continue
