Since the introduction of the blade interface on XBOX360, I have been looking for a simple way to accomplish this with javascript and css.
Last week I decided to give it a try myself.

As I am working actively with jQuery since its introduction, it was my library of choice. Using jQuery and some plugin magic, I succeeded.

This is still a project in progress, but thought I share it and give something back to the great jQuery community :)

I will be writing up a more detailed tutorial soon and add more functionality. I also have some other nice widgets I will be sharing in the future ;)

The past few weeks I have helped my friend (Chuck Wadlow) to redesign his hosting website siteshostedby.info. I am sure many remember him under his alias Infopro. His company has provided solid and affordable hosting for the past 5 years, mostly targeting Friends, Associates and Family.

From today on he is opening his hosting solutions to everyone who is searching for a reliable, trusted and personal host.

Feel free to drop by and take a look.

„Server2Go is a Webserver that runs out of box without any installation.
That means it is a webserver that can run directly from cdrom, usb
stick or from any folder on harddisk. Server2Go allows you to create a
standalone working web site or PHP application on a CD-ROM. Server2Go
was primary developed for the usage on CD-ROM but there is no problem
use it from other drives too. Using a web browser, a user can run php
programs as well as view html files on the CD-ROM. He only need to
insert a CD with Server2Go under the supported Windows operations
systems. The server starts automaticly and opens a browser with the
Website of the CD-ROM.
Server2Go was build to replace a tool called WampOnCD that lacks some important features and isn’t activly developed.

Server2Go supports PHP5, SQLite and MySQL.“

A Week of many things

PostNuke Pro Modules
Have been working my way through the Pro modules this week, outlining the future roadmaps for each of them. Will publish them on the Pro website soon.

Accept from my development enviroment and some customer programmming and consulting projects, I am not really actively using Postnuke anymore. Alot of the work I have done on the Pro modules in the past is outdated. My way of thinking and programming has changed alot and will change the way those modules evolve in the coming months.

Due to core changes in Postnuke (session table, api changes), I will have to decide if I add simple switches or branch out.
Design / Programming
I love diversity :) After 2 years of working underground, its
really fun to work on many different projects out in the open again ;)

Have been actively cleaning up portalZINE the past few days and
have some more changes lined up. Still finetuning parts of the framework and adding new functioanlity (never ending story), functionality that is also required for a bigger project I am currently finalizing. Also started a new design/programming
project for a friend of mine, that will take most of the coming week
Its a complete community and company redesign.

Well all the things above should be fun :) I entered a beta
hardware test here in Europe, that will swallow some time in the next
few weeks, but will definitely be consindered as fun. My sister is stopping by today and we will have a nice barbecue outside, if the weather plays nice.

Enjoy your weekend

Check Excel CSV files


„XCache is a fast, stable PHP opcode cacher that has been tested and is now running on production servers under high load. It is tested (on linux) and supported on all of the latest PHP cvs branches such as PHP_4_3 PHP_4_4 PHP_5_0 PHP_5_1 PHP_5_2 HEAD(6.x). ThreadSafe/Windows is also supported. It overcomes a lot of problems that has been with other competing opcachers such as being able to be used with new PHP versions.“

Have been playing with it locally and used it on a customer install. Have been trying most of the opcode cachers over the past months, this one is the only cacher that is actively developed, apart from APC.

Compress Javascript

Compress javascript easily. Most of the popular libraries already provide compressed versions to minimize their file sizes.
