The other day in #php:

<philip> my cat is blocking access to the keyboard
[snip out obvious cat synonym related jokes]
<caffinated> philip - root your cat and change it's permissions :x
<philip> access denied!
<caffinated> catwalls are tricky, try using food.c
<philip> heh
<qbklinm8> wouldn't that be food.php?
<caffinated> when was the last time you've seen an exploit written in php? ;)
<qbklinm8> interesting suggestion.

Updated my phpdoc page. Included are various resources and tips that make documenting the PHP manual easier. The rest of the site is a couple years old though.

I've been back for almost a month, it's difficult getting back to work. The woods were (and still are) great, I miss them so. I'm working on a project for the-underdogs.org presently and will be done by October 31. In the last few days I've written a lot of posts to phpbuilder forums, perhaps too many.

Within two weeks I'll be moving away from technology and venturing off into the woods as a camp ranger. In otherwords, I'll be selling firewood, collecting camp fees, and hopefully not making too many people angry :) I need a little break from computers, this will be one. For about two months.

Also, I finally implemented the changes on that manual page. Here's the exciting diff.

I created the user philip here, do I want to worry about moving everything over? Not sure. I may try :)

I don't use the handle aint much anymore (if at all), time for a new name? It's not that important though.

Once I finish up my current project I hope to attack all my forgotten promises for the PHP project. First on the todo is this doc bug, (using/getting information from outside PHP). The recent changes have made life interesting in this regard:)

I've written a few posts on the subject and will use them for reference (a, b, c, d, e, f). Feel free to email me with ideas. This will be done within 7 days, +-2 as I'll be away this weekend in Walla Walla, Washington.

Did my first commit to phpdoc the other day and it's now online at php.net/strip_tags, Example #1.specifically. I learned a valuable lesson, be sure to know what the output will look like before committing to cvs tree. Silly xml :) Working on the PHP Manual is more fun then php-general or better put, rewarding in a different way ;-)

I'm starting work on phpReview and hope to contribute useful thoughts, words, and code. I'm the only native English speaker on the team so most likely I'll be cleaning up comments and documentation for awhile. I'm okay with this, somebody has to do it and it may as well be me! [update: march 06, 2001 - I've not worked on phpReview for a long time]

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
