File Size Upload Limits using Godaddy Hosting

I've been working on a new project for a friend of mine and came across an issue with trying to upload photos using the infamous freeASPUpload code.  I've used the code in the past for some past projects but don't recall having issues with limits on uploading files.

I'm posting this on my blog b/c there's nothing on the internet that discusses this (or at least I wasn't able to find any explanations), and hopefully this can be a resource to someone else that comes across the same issue.

Now I know there are other options, utilities, etc. for uploading pics/files/etc. but freeASPUpload is simple, I've used it in the past, and this project is pretty basic. 

So, if you want to change the upload file size limit you will first want to go into your Godaddy's hosting account.  Next go into the Virtual Directories option, then click on Directory Properties.  Towards the bottom there is a section called "Maximum size of entity body of an ASP request (KB)", this is where you can change the value but first uncheck the statement next to it that says "defined by IIS".

Click OK and you can now upload bigger sized files through the uploader! 

Hopefully this helps someone in the future!

If you'd like to take a look at the website I'm currently working go to ClickBidHunt.com

It's about 75% complete at the moment (June 22, 2018); it's a website that allows hunters to make bids on properties to hunt on.

My Twitter Followers Have Gone Down!

If you're a Twitter user you might have heard or seen on your account the number of followers go down.  For some of us, those numbers might be minimal.  I have a Twitter account @NKYSports which I use in connection with one of my High School sports website NKYSports.com.  Last week I had about 6,070 followers.  That number today is down about 100.  But I have heard users who have followers over 50K, 100K, etc. losing thousands and thousands of "so-called" followers.

So what happened?  Twitter has started cleaning accounts due to fake news scandals and data privacy.  That equates to about 1 million accounts the past quarter (2nd Q of 2018).  Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey says improving the health of the platform is critical for future growth.

Twitter has been a great tool for my website, but I also like getting updates sent directly to my phone to get the latest news, sports, weather, etc.  I know what to believe and not to believe as well!  Fake news is every where, always wil…

Book Review: The New Psycho-Cybernetics

The book The New Psycho-Cybernetics by Dr. Maxwell Maltz is truly an amazing book!  This book should be read by everyone!  Whether your self-image is good or bad this book talks about taking steps to improve your self-image, live a longer life, and ultimately be happy!

I myself feel like I have a good self-image, my self-esteem is high and overall I'm an optimistic and happy person.  But I can see how a book like this can help me strive for higher achievements and help me to reach those higher goals!

For those with poor self-images and low esteem this book will benefit you immensely.  The book talks about several examples where people have been down, sick, lonely.  But have gone through the exercises in the book and come out with a much better self-image and becoming much more happy.

There are so many examples in the book its hard to cover them all and that's why I will definitely be reading the book again, as well as a reference for future inspirations.  Towards the end of th…

Love the XMLHttpRequest Object

I was reading up on some XML and AJAX stuff the other day and came across the XMLHttpRequest Object - when I come across snippets of code like the example in the link, I always try to figure a way to incorporate it into my work.  I always ask myself is this something I can use and make my software more efficient?

This was something I most definitely could use as we have a system of part numbers in our database.  We have users that select part numbers to enter Selling Opportunities so I was able to use the code to look up the part numbers more quickly, showing the part numbers, qty on hand, and some other pertinent info.
Below is an example of some code:
Page1.asp
<html> <head> <script> function showHint(str) {     if (str.length == 0) {         document.getElementById("txtHint").innerHTML = "";         return;     } else {         var xmlhttp = new XMLHttpRequest();         xmlhttp.onreadystatechange = function() {             if (this.readyState =…
