Drupal site, allows for customer profiles, multiple permissions, etc. etc.
Chalk up another finished site for Sine Interactive. In-Line Consulting has gone live! A totally static site with a PHP based contact form that sends a copy of the claim report back to the user. In-Line Consulting, LLC is a full-service loss estimation and construction consulting firm.
As the developer toolbox grows, you’ll start to have “fun times” connecting to all the test machines. Of course there are times when you just want to use one keyboard and mouse. My desk would be a nasty place to hang out without SSH and VNC.
Imagine, if you will, a debian based gnome desktop. Nice, they have remote desktop built-in. Hey, lets connect to our nice OSX box which also has VNC client/server built-in. Oops. Doesn’t work.
Just make sure you setup your OSX Leopard preferences as follows in this screenshot:
On your Linux desktop you’ll need to install the apt package version of xtightvncviewer:
box$ sudo apt-get install xtightvncviewer
You’re good to go. Connect to your OSX box now.
box$ xtightvncviewer [ip address]
Another site complete! We been on a roll lately wrapping up a lot of ongoing projects and we’re pretty deep into some pre-production on some other majors ones. But Nicole Uphoff – Photo Stylist was one that I wasn’t sure was every going to get wrapped up!
Nicole approached us months and months ago as she needed a new portfolio site, she wanted it to be clean and open and just focus on her work. After mulling over some flash options, we put the project aside while we waited for Nicole to come back to us with the photos for the website.
Loads fast, easy to update and looks sweet! We present to you Nicole Uphoff – Photo Stylist
This page opener is for the people at Stratasys who wanted a Flash built, eye catching opening module for their home page which allows the users to view a preview of 4 topics and then click into any of them to view more.
This is part 1 of 2, the 2nd will be re-directed towards a different demographic.
Recently in a middle of a debugging frenzy, I thought I would up the ante and use some more powerful tools. Of course, most of the time all you need is CLI and a nice text editor. Textmate, for life. So the said extra juice is provided from the latest offering from ActiveState. Komodo IDE is great cross-platform fun, so it seems like a great fit. Oh, did I mention their editor is free (and doesn’t suck)?
Meanwhile, I’m excited to fire up an Xdebug session. I drop my svn repo into the project, done. Wrong, it barfs up an error
svn: This client is too old to work with working copy '.'; please get a newer Subversion client
Looks like there is a different format in the way that local working copies are stored for SVN 1.5, which Leopard does not have installed. OK, I’ll just grab the latest update from Apple. Wrong. CollabNet to the rescue for putting together a separate universal binary.
Go grab it: http://www.open.collab.net/downloads/community.
The new version is installed in /opt, so go ahead and add it to your path. Easier yet, just point Komodo IDE to the new bin directory.
Now go forth and watch the glorious repo status icons populate, sweet!
So… you are working on the next killer web app, with an international touch. Giving your LAMP based applications a locality is quite important when considering the scope of your users. Since most modern apps will be accessed globally, give your users a valid timezone for a starting point. It isn’t a great practice to rely upon your server’s default configuration… especially when using shared hosting.
Lets change it! In your php.ini config, locate and uncomment your date.timezone line. On Debian based servers, you can check in (/etc/php5/apache2). Change your config to read something like:
Here is a full listing of all the available PHP timezones
