Hey, you. Not, not you. You, the one reading this blog. Did you know that I now also have a linkblog that has the best links that I come across that day? You should read it. And subscribe to it too. And then read it again. It’ll be funny, thought-provoking, and educational. And it’ll help you lose weight. Oh, and get the girl or boy you’re after. Seriously, 4 out of every 5 bloggers agree. So, go ahead, click on it. You know you want to. See you there.

A Thought Experiment

George related this gem at the Zend Conference. Someone (let’s call him Bob) came up to him, and had this exchange:

Bob: If you were a PHP function.. which function would you be?
George: <unblinking stare of incredulity>
Bob: I am part Native American, so I think I would be apache_terminate_child().
George: <backs away slowly>

Slides from Zend Conference

02 November 2006 » In PHP, Talks » 1 Comment

I gave a talk on PHP and Unicode at the Zend Conference 2006. It was actually at 8:30 in the morning on the day of my birthday (November 2), which I thought was a nice touch on Zend’s part. Additionally, all the sessions in the conference were numbered with track number and order, so my session’s number was 2-11. Coincidence or not? In any case, the slides are online now.
