When George Met Jack

It's always the same everywhere, scratching each other back. Will we ever see someone that can stand on his own feet?

Web 3.0

filed under: @ 16:59:52

An article by Jeffrey Zeldman on A List Apart :

Web 3.0

The development of new technologies on the web is very fast. For me is difficult to keep up with it even if I have to say that I find AJAX interesting. The point for me is always the same: keep things simple and easy to use. Most people have a very basic understanding of web techology and just need to use the Internet to find what they are interested in. The trend factor is stupid and usually brings bad and confusing results. Part of it is also the general way of thinking nowadays: fast consumption, no trace left afterwards. I also think that what will be done properly will stay around and bring a positive effect into that very open, shape-changing reality the web is.

Php functions lookup

filed under: @ 14:19:43

From splasho :

Php functions lookup and its source

" I put together this AJAX (actually AJAH) tool that allows you to quickly view the important details (argument list especially) of PHP functions. You just type in the beginning of the function you want and you are presented with a list, click one on the list and the details are filled in. "

My own code

filed under: @ 13:53:45

This site is now powered by my own hand written code.

The features are almost the same as before, just much simpler. I used only 20% of what Wordpress made possible anyway. There are still a few things that I want to add but the core is done.

Shanghai

filed under: @ 11:21:17

Just got back from Shanghai.

The temperature was between 0 and -4 degrees Centigrades..

It was a very short and hard trip, I hope next time I will have more time. I posted a picture of the Pudong skyline in the sidebar and more pics will be in the photos archive (not yet).

I'm too tired to write a long post, check out the Wikitravel entry for more info on Shanghai.
