Hello Smultron

When looking around for a text editor for Roosa’s new iMac, I came across Smultron. Free until version 3.8, version 4 is available in the Mac App Store for $5. I’m trying out the free version 3.5.1 before splurging on it. It appears not everyone’s been happy with progress: version 4 has quite a few negative reviews over the loss of a tabbed interface.

Everything that’s wrong with PHP

PHP: a fractal of bad design. A well-researched article on everything that’s wrong with PHP. Am I going to stop using PHP over night over this? No. But that doesn’t mean there’s isn’t a lot to learn fromn it. And, as always, sometimes worse is better.
