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 ...

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 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 ...

Lobbying for PHP — emPHPower me.

Posted by:

Lukas Smith recently posted an article talking about the need for an organization within the PHP community saying:

There are is fundamental concept that I see in this vision:
emPHPower is a mediator and catalyst that empowers members of the community to follow their own ideas

Professional Organizations Matter

I have been a member of a much smaller organization which adopted a similar mission. The reputation and livelihoods of this group had been damaged by years of infighting, bad legislation ...

PHP Weekly Reader – March 30th 2008

Posted by:

I have been doing some research on build tools this last week, and was hoping some new articles would crop up that were related so I could accomplish two things at once, write my weekly review and learn about new tools, unfortunately that didn’t happen.


There were a few articles about tools I already use and Getting an overview of all targets accumulated in a Phing build file actually told me something I didn’t know, the best part was ...

PHP Weekly Reader – March 23th 2008

Posted by:

I’m a little late with the Weekly Reader, I spent some time with my family on Sunday and a hectic day at work on Monday. Luckily there wasn’t much going on in my reader this last week that just had to be here, so this will be short otherwise it won’t make it out before next weeks review.

Zend again

You really have to admire the way the ZF community keeps up the flow of information about the Zend Framework. Other ...

PHP Weekly Reader – March 16th 2008

Posted by:

I spend way too much time reading blogs, surfing PHP and web development articles online. I resolve to cut back but things just sneak back into my reader somehow, and believe me dzone doesn’t help. But I’ve came up with a way to justify all that time, I call it research.

I thought I’d share a bit of this research so every Sunday night you will find a bit of commentary and a lot of links to things ...

Thats where the containers are.

Posted by:

My post awhile back asking about container libraries drew a “you don’t need them so why are you looking?” response. Well at least I know where they are now according to this announcement of new data structures in SPL.

I wish the documentation for the SPL was better, but I look forward to playing around with the new stuff anyways. In fact the documentation still has nothing.

Not sure I needed a whole post for this but I was glad to ...
