Blog

A quick note out of nowhere.

Posted by:

I have been waiting for pligg 2.0 to release for a small project and bouncing around the site every couple days to check progress. I have to say it is one of the weirdest ways I’ve ever seen an “open-source” project ran. Just odd.

Anyway my intention isn’t to talk about pligg, a link to a blog there caught my eye while I was there (Help Chuckroast) . I’ve read most of his entries, the guy is struggling and ...

Yii

Posted by:

Yes I’m still around! I am finally able to start working on the 60 days project I announced over 9 months ago. Yii will be the first framework up in the 60 days series. I would like to be able to give you specific reasons why I chose it but it just came down to picking one. My first choice was Kohana but they are on the verge of releasing a major update so I thought ...

What is it?

Posted by:

60 Days is an idea I had while trying to decide what to do with the domains I have sitting around doing nothing — (well nothing but being a nagging reminder that I’ll never have time for every idea that pops into my head, and that domain names cost money to keep).

The Goal

  • Finish a real world site every 60 days using a different PHP framework.
  • Post an ongoing review of the framework being used.
  • Have fun.

60 Days will launch January 1st 2009. ...

I'm back

Posted by:

I’ve been away for a while taking care of “real life”, I had been thinking maybe I’m not destined to blog. Yet, its time to renew several of my domains and I just can’t part with this one nor can I see leaving it in its abandoned state. So I’m going to try something different -for me- and come up with an actual plan of action to get back on track. I’ll be back in a couple ...

Xajax and Vanilla

Posted by:

A couple weeks ago I read a few posts where the authors discussed what they had accomplished that day. I thought I would do something similar and talk about what is in my IDE each week. Using the term IDE very loosely (for those of you who are super literal).

XAJAX replacement

If you are familiar with XAJAX you know it is an easy way to integrate PHP and AJAX, if you aren’t familiar with it you should go ...

PHP Weekly Reader – April 27th 2008

Performance

Everybody is expecting lots of traffic. Thats the trend of last weeks posts anyway, there were at least 7 articles on the subject. It is one of my favorite topics, unfortunately I never have enough traffic to see any of them actually solve a problem for me.

PHP Weekly Reader – April 20th 2008

Posted by:

Judging by the number PHP of articles last week, spring is here. I can understand that since I find it extremely hard to focus on the computer screen when the weather is so beautiful, It almost hurt to write this article :) . I try to enjoy the spring while it lasts until the heat of summer arrives to drive me back inside, most summer days here will be over 100F well into the ...

PHP Weekly Reader – April 13th 2008

Posted by:

Two posts last week reminded me of a daily question my dad would ask me at the end of the day. Travis Swicegood answers the question Whad did You do today? which inspired Ken Guest to do the same with What I’ve done recently. I always hated answering that question for some reason, I can tell you now that the correct answer to give my dad was not “I don’t know” or “nothing”. I hated ...

PHP Weekly Reader – April 6th 2008

Posted by:

April fools came and went, I didn’t get fooled. Thats sad, I love April fools day and this had to be the lamest year ever.


It was spring cleaning time this weekend so my computers were all unhooked and disassembled this weekend while everything was scrubbed clean. That spilled over into Monday which has now become Tuesday. That means everybody gets a break from my weekly reviews. Except this little tiny bit:


Subtle Digs


This caught my interest DHH ...
