Back to the code...

Well, I'm back to coding again - lucky me. I've been working on kalfu again and have made some progress. Probably the biggest thing were some "left brain induced drawing moments" where I actually sat down and mapped some things out. Also I worked on getting the data filter working the way I wanted it to …

IframeXHR

Once again I've been working my tail off on HTML AJAX and it's time for a new release. I'm not doing this out of any altruism - I just want a nicely debugged working ajax solution that I can hack into kalfu properly. The biggest project this time around has been IframeXHR (xmlhttprequest) - a javascript …

Way too much HTML_AJAX and stupid Opera

I've been doing a LOT of work on the pear HTML_AJAX project. I'm usually not a big fan of pear but it's nice not to have to write everything. For the last release I tried to pin down a serializer that provides an api similiar to xajax and others - the "write no javascript - I …

Webservers on Windows - Apache, Mysql and Php Installation

WAMP installation for dummies
Introduction
After yet another post on php.windows mailing list by users on "how do make mysql work" and viewing some (often incorrect) installation instructions I've decided to do a "Windows Installation for Dummies" for people who seem to have trouble with WAMP (Windows, Apache, Mysql, Php) installs. I'll also include some supplementary information …

Ami/Zoi erotica

Ami yanked on the laces one last time, ignoring the blaring rock now echoing from the closed bedroom door. Her hands ran along the leather, admiring the fit, but she wiggled a bit as the g-string felt strange. She didn't wear thong underwear, as a general rule, and found the thin piece of leather in her …

The Gift - Ami/Zoi drabble

He sat beside her on the couch, thighs pressed against each other, and resisted the urge to laugh as she pulled off the valentine's wrapping paper.

Purpose

Life is a strange thing - with twists and turns you've never imagined. It's different to wake up each morning and feel, if not happy than content. No one can be happy all the time, something I think many people strive for in vain. Happiness is a fleeting emotion and a very fickle one to base …

The profession of Teaching - A mini-rant

I was reading a very interesting article in time magazine today on middle school and it's effect on kids. I don't know about you, but in our school system middle schools seems to attract the dregs - the teachers who don't want to be teaching or just aren't qualified for the job. (notice I didn't say …

Deer Park

The latest firefox upgrade (1.0.6) decided to get all crashy on me and was royally pissing me off, so I decided to take the plunge and download deer park.

Wordpress Hacks revisted

Well, I'm still trying to push some fixes into the wp core that would make db abstraction easier, but until then here is the wordpress 1.5.3 version of the files for the hack. for a new installation it's the same as always - if you're upgrading and using the hack, first upgrade using the official wordpress …

Php Internals Summary - June 10th to 20th

Yes yes, I know, this is late - but monday to monday seems to be a more sane schedule for these...

Php Internals Summary - June 5-9th

I was reading slashdot (yes I was REALLY bored) and came across this article explaining how php is turning ten. Then I read down into the comments (really bored, remember?) and was absolutely surprised to see that the general public has no way of keeping up with what's going on in PHP development.

Pink take two

Well, the design SHOULD be done now, yell if you have any problems. I've created an "IE is stupid" stylesheet (appropriately called stupid.css) so the blog, although VERY plain and VAGUELY ugly, is perfectly usable and readable - if you just hide all the pngs and undo the fancy positioning it works just jim dandy.

"Clean" urls with php

So... everybody talks about how they want "clean" urls - in other words use pathinfo instead of query strings and leave off the extensions (.gif|.png|.php|.html et al) These are all methods that assume you're aware of how to mangle pathinfo to get the information you want, they don't rewrite urls into query strings (although that's the …

pretty in pink

So, a new layout for the blog - I was playing. It does not work in Internet Explorer and I'm too damn lazy to take the time to fix it. The new IE7 (javascript solution) will be out next week, I'll tack it onto my header template so IE people can read the site in a …

Revenge of the Sith buzz is ...GOOD?

He got a standing ovation at Cannes, the movie reviews are positive, and it's said Steven Spielberg helped out so the film won't suck... do we finally have a GOOD prequel star wars movie? I'll hold my breath, but I won't get to see it until Saturday, since it's the last few weeks of school I …

Those who make you work...

If you look at the bottom of slashdot you'll notice you get a rather random quote from their database when you visit. Some are very good, some of very bad, but today's had me thinking of the past.

Chronicles of Riddick

A little rant/love note this morning for one of my favorite movies - Chronicles of Riddick. First of all, my perception of the film is probably forever colored because 1. I didn't see pitch black until I bought all three movies and watched them in a row, I didn't see any of the three in theaters. …
