As part of an interview in connection with PBSs upcoming airings of
"Macbeth" and "Hamlet" in April, Sir Patrick Stewart tells
FRONTLINEs Digital Nation that he can't condense life into a 140
character Tweet, and explains why he is afraid to start
When doing large data inserts with transactions, you should
always do your query preparation outside of your loop.
$p = $datasource->prepare('INSERT a SET b = :c');
If the query prepare is moved into the loop, an exorbitant
amount of memory and time is consumed parsing the query every
iteration. For a million inserts, this can result in
exceeding allowed memory usage.
Today I had lunch with Chris Bonney at Vanguard Technology. We talked
about some interesting things, primarily the use of test messaging
at conferences. Is that something that is in the future or
are we past text messages with smart phones and short message
applications like Twitter. Thoughts?
The Gulo team has been working feverishly on projects for the
Chicago Photography Center, the Cruise Lines International
Association, and the Pew Environmental Group.
We're also working on a couple new Gulo apps we think are really
cool. Boardwiz is a
dead-simple jobs board app which let's you add your very own
revenue-generating jobs board to your website. And FleaPay is a hosted shopping cart
that plugs right into your merchant account. Both will be ready
soon. Stay tuned.
Do your users really need to see every aspect of your website? The
answer is, I don't think so. While Microsoft's
Sharepoint is an extremely powerful tool, developers should be
careful what they make visible to the world.
The ready.mobi testing tool evaluates mobile-readiness using
industry best practices & standards. The free report provides
both a score (from 1 to 5) and in-depth analysis of pages to
determine how well your site performs on a mobile device.
At Gulo, most of our writing happens in Google Docs - it's simply
the easiest way for us to share notes, collaborate on copy, and
create spreadsheets - you know, the stuff we used to do in
Microsoft Office. "But I don't have Gmail!" I hear someone in the
back saying. Creating a Google account means filling out three
fields and a captcha. It's worth your 25 seconds. Trust me.
Earlier this year, Google quietly released a feature that I
don't see a ton of people taking advantage of - forms. And it's
pretty darned easy:
Start with a spreadsheet to get the form, or start by creating
the form and you'll get the spreadsheet automatically. Responses
are automatically added to your spreadsheet.
