This post details how to get hover to focus without raising the window working in Windows 7. I think the same tweeks will work in other versions of windows, but I’ve not tried them

I’m not sure what happened to the BeBook 2; it was taken to trade shows, and I’ve seen photos of it, but it appears Endless Ideas (the company that make the BeBooks) have decided not to go down that route. Instead, it appears there’s a new device being released – BeBook have announced the BeBook Neo!

In this post I detail simple instructions for installing Glassfish v3 onto Ubuntu (although it will work just as well with Redhat, debian, and anything else). I also show how to create and deploy a simple WAR using Maven.

Unfortunately, sfFileCache doesn’t scale well on certain file systems as it puts all of it’s cached files in one location. This simple class adds support for hashing the directory name based on a the name of the item being cached. It wasn’t worth a plugin, so I’m pasting it here.

I recently needed to send the result of an action in symfony via email daily. E-mail has changed slightly in symfony 1.3/1.4 – here’s how I did it. I really don’t like my solution at all, the use of get_partial() from within a Task seems very wrong to me – but I’m in a rush so it will do for now, I’d love to hear feedback

I wanted to create a form that allowed me to dynamically add sub-forms via JS, without round-trips to the server. I had a bit of a google, but failed to find much of use – so I wrote my own. This article contains my code for a proof of concept, and a brief description of what it does. It is proof of concept, and done as an example, so code isn’t done perhaps as I might do in a real configuration, but I hope it provides help to others.
I’ve recently got a BeBook Mini, and thought I’d take a little time to upload some pictures and write a few words. Continue reading “The BeBook Mini”
Workflows are a useful tool to help manage business processes. In this post I take a look at the workflow engine of eZ components, which was developed by Sebastian Bergmann. In this post, I introduce the basics of the workflow engine, and will expand on it’s usage in future posts.

The headers Postini’s anti-spam system adds to emails are quite hard to filter on, as you need to compare part of one header to part of another. Here’s a little snipped that works with dovecot 1.2’s sieve implementation. I don’t actually use this myself anymore, but I’m posting it here for anyone else struggling with the problem.

Fabien has already introduced the symfony service container, and will be shortly releasing a post covering more of it. I was keen to get my hands dirty, so I’ve dived into the code and got a quick example working.
