That frustrationis pushing more companies to consider Linux-basedoperating systems as well as Apple Computer's OS X,she says.For the full story:

Ahhhhhhh. Love is in the air. After a brief, but much needed rainshower, the male and female robin stopped by the local feeder for a gourmet meal of sunflower seeds and grain. Following dinner, they mosey'd on over to the bird bath for a quick, refreshing dip.Can anyone tell me where I can find a decent web cam for a Mac? (with support for OS 9 and OS X) I'd love to fix a camera on my feeder.

THUMP – pitter, patter, pitter, patter

THUMP – pitter, patter, pitter, patter, pitter, patter, pitter, patter, pitter, patter.That is what I hear EVERY morning about this time. SOMETHING is living in my attic, directly above my office. Could it be the two squirrels who have started to ransack my bird feeder, chasing away my cool little bluejays and robins? Is it the neighborhood possum, coming home after a long night's prowl? Whatever it is, I think it's getting fatter – no doubt off my birdseed. If I don't find out soon, it might get stuck. In this Texas summer heat, they won't last long in my attic. I can only go up there after dark – or I'll melt.Maybe tomorrow I'll sneak outside and try to perch myself near the rooftop. Maybe I'll get a glimpse of my furry squatter.THUMP – pitter, patter, pitter, patter, pitter, patter, pitter, patter, pitter, patter.

My PHP Writings.

My PHP Writings

Alex (who I mistakenly called Adam in a blog post on Sunday; sorry Alex) asked me for a list of all my php writings.  Ack!  And his reward is this index to my php writings.   I'll try to get them all.  Not sure if this is complete and some of the articles are starting points only but there's code in them thar articles as they say.  Libby may like this too:

Googling for Me and PHP


Blogged Stuff:

Incomplete, honestly no idea what state they are in.  I started them, got pulled off and never got back onto them.

Now Alex also brought up an interesting point — he's tired of small scale articles about PHP applications and wants to see a series of articles about a single large project built in PHP that showcases a large, maintainable PHP application.  I have one in mind but I'm curious if anyone else would be interested in such a series of articles…

Email me by clicking here if you want to see it or here if you don't.  The application in question would be a large scale open source groupware style thing.  All features including kitchen sink.  Heavily biased towards improving productivity of service organizations (Yeah… Scratching my own niche here).

Yesterday I read an article that said that the reason that email has become the most popular Internet tool is that people can easily relate to the function. It is 'natural' to write a letter to someone. I find myself suddenly drawn to email my weblog instead of opening up my browser, navigating to the right section, and writing my weblog entry. Maybe I would post more if I started just emailing my posts.Question: Do you use the Mail-to-Weblog bridge to post your entries and if not, why?
