    to agree with Torvalds when he said that focusing only on security is misguided It doesn t make sense to only take the security fixes and backport them to a previous version and ignore the bug fixes I want PHP to work and run as expected Not become a fragmented mess where the version you re running is actually some weird hybrid of PHP versions 5 2 6 5 2 8 and 5 2 9 And then it still says that you ve got 5 2 6 installed which makes you wonder what security vulnerabilities have actually been fixed Similarly with shared hosting accounts if I see an older version of PHP installed the first thing that comes to mind is that they re using an older buggier version that still has widely publicised security vulnerabilities Not something that instils a lot of confidence Now if there was some easy way to get good up to date packages David says May 15th 2009 at 2 05 am What really bugs me is when distros take forever to upgrade to newer packages I can understand the stability argument to a degree you don t want things changing all the time on live servers but at the same time minor point upgrades rarely add new features and instead are bug fix releases I have to agree with Torvalds

hindrance to the community 2 the debian fix to session management is real bad if the admin does not know that he has to set session gc prob to 0 it usually igets discovered when the session table in the db is 10million rows 3 having a non sushosin patched version in the main repos would also be good for those who prefer speed over security 4 having a different timezone db linked into php redhat can also be source of confusion in exetremely rare cases I admit The biggest problem overall I d say is making the info about distro added patches and tweaks much more prominent and easily accessible

compiled in so it s a waste Yet OSX comes with SQLite and PDO and does come with PDO SQLite go figure On pre 10 5 the easiest way to install PHP on OSX is to use a 3rd party distribution Entrophy which requires php full tags out of the box and it kludges itself into Apache with a entrophy conf hoping that e is the first conf file including in your vhosts sites configuration s On OSX 10 5 x GD is not installed by default with PHP rendering it useless for most work I do Joomla Drupal custom that requires image libraries be on the system In case you can t tell OSX blows long live ArchLinux

    t say they worked in technology but around the male dominated teams who did The research that has inspired Ada Lovelace day talks about women having a stronger need for suitable role models than men do But the question that s been praying on my mind today is this what else do we need to do to make working in technology more appealing to women Leaving aside the behavioural problems in male dominated environments for a moment are there changes to technical tools and practices we could make that would play more to the psychological strengths of women Be the first to leave a comment Tea Leaves Posted by Stuart Herbert on October 3rd 2008 in Opinion Sigh don t you just hate it when folks steal your work by re posting it as if it is theirs Be the first to leave a comment On Management False Sirens And The Threat of Rails Posted by Stuart Herbert on June 6th 2008 in Opinion PHP In Business The motivation for this blog post came from reading an article today touting the meme that cloud computing is coming That s the message from Sarah Perez over on Read Write Web The classic geek which presumably includes many of the folks reading this on Planet PHP will no longer be the ones working with the CEOs to execute the vision and direction via information technology according to Sarah Presumably because the companies will have gone bust from a lack of good leadership Something we ve seen before and will see again The successful IT departments in the sort of larger organisations that can provide food and shelter for your true classic geek have been part of the business for the last decade if not longer Before we had the sexy CTO and CIO titles there were IT Managers and Operations Managers who did all this stuff with little fan fare and trumpet blowing They did it on a budget so they had to have financial management skills They managed staff so they had to have people skills They delivered results so they had to have project management skills They made sure the business could do its job so they had to have quality assurance skills They implemented approaches such as ITIL and more lately CoBIT to ensure that the IT department was aligned to the business and relevant regulation And they did this whilst still groking computers In fact they did this because they groked computers I ve seen this sort of nonsense before when Java came on the scene and the rise of the Web 2 0 blogger means I m seeing it again Everything is new everything is different the old skills and the old lessons no longer apply so don t bother learning them that is the seductive siren call Any student of management history can trace this echo back hundreds if not thousands of years The core skills of good governance direction organisation and supervision have not changed
