Talking in binary since 1980.

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. – Apple Inc. – technology demystified

digitalijeI get lot’s of “how-to” questions from relatives, friend… There was nothing else for me to do then to start a new website, answering all those questions.
One thing I had in mind was – there are too many tech related sites, with all those mobile phone reviews and stuff, can I make something different?

Read XML files in PHP

Darko at 1:34 pm on Wednesday, August 12, 2009

PHP with XMLXML is very nice format for storing and especially transferring data between applications. Instead of old plain TXT files which you must parse from a strictly defined format, XML files gives your data 2nd dimension – a structure, so you basically “know” what data represents without need for parsing and cleaning it from rubbish.
Everybody is using it, so why shouldn’t you? :)

How does WordPress handle friendly URLs?

Google URL magnifyNot so long time ago, I wrote about handling friendly URLs for your own site using Apache (it’s URL rewrite engine, and .htaccess file) and PHP – “Friendly URL, the easy way”.
In the meantime I was doing some changes to .htaccess file for one of my WordPress installations, and what made me thinking was how does the WordPress handle URLs.

ajax 2.0In one of my previous posts – Simple AJAX example, I explained a few steps that will help you enter the web 2.0 development world using famous AJAX method.
In that example we were submiting a HTML form with POST method using XmlHttpRequest and then processing the request server-side using PHP and getting some results back to JavaScript, to the client machine without refreshing the whole page. Very cool :)

Secure your Flash-PHP connection

Darko at 6:10 am on Wednesday, August 12, 2009

secureIf you’re working on a Flash game in which you are saving player score in a database, you might wanna consider applying some security to it :)

As I know, you cannot access MySQL database directly from Flash, so you’ll need to do some ActionScripting and call an external script to do it for you. For this example, we’ll be using PHP as a server-side script that will be doing MySQL communication.

But, maybe you sold a domain and want to transfer a project to another domain name. Then you have a lot of things to do.
