Hello, I’m a web craftsman with a passion for the modern web. I build web applications and play with social services and communities.
I’ve been waiting 2 years for this. And now it was time. Unlocked goodness so I can freely travel. As with all Apple product it’s good to wait for the 3rd product generation. Most of the features that make my life much easier, such as CalDAV and LDAP support, were just coming with the 3.0 update.
I got the iPhone 3G S iPhone 3GS (like 3GS better and Apple seems to change it too) (32GB white) 2 days ago, June 20th 09. Since then I’ve been playing around and I’m quite happy about the new possibilities. Over the next few days I’ll be updating my data plans so I can make full use of it’s 3G capabilities in Austria and Germany.
The next step will be software development for the iPhone. First Webapps and later CocoaTouch apps.
iPhone, here I come!
Recently I created a Flash-based file uploader for a website that was behind a HTTP Basic Auth.
So I was looking for a workaround for this problem and came across a simple solution. You have to exclude the server-side script (async-upload.php in this example) that receives the uploads from Flash from the Basic Auth. To do so you can add the following lines to the .htaccess file in the same directory as the server-side script.
# Exclude the file upload script from authentication
Allow from all
Deny from none
Hope this will help someone.
