Blog comprimised

So my s9y blog got defected, by a person called FD, who ever that is … Luckly that person(s) didn’t touch my database so I thank him/her/them for that, but on that note, why can’t people just use emails when this kind of things happen?! Why do they always have to show of what they did and replace some stuff ?!?!

Jaws developer and 0.5 "She's Famous Now" release of Jaws

So, I’ve joined yet another open source project … And I have enough of them on my back as is ;-) The project is the CMS/Framework Jaws and can be found at

Why did I join yet another OS project and why did I pick that one ? I’ve been hearing good things about Jaws and how simple it is and I really needed to find a very idot proof CMS to run a site for the company that pays me my salaray (which is not the company I work for, complicated but so it goes ;)) and that company mainly has building construction workers, I don’t doubt the guy that will be maintaining the site, he’s very eager to learn new things but I just don’t have time to teach him and since Jaws explains it self very well I think he’ll manage just fine …

Require Source Version Control in PEAR ?

Before reading this, do note that nothing has been agreed in regards to those actions described below are only my thoughts on this matter :-) Have fun reading!

NOTE All comments were lost due to a move from s9y to dotClear back in 2005, just look at the pear-dev archives from 2005 :P

Until now the PEAR project hasn’t required developers to use a SVC for their code (CVS, SVN and etc.) which has led to couple of problems and short comings for us, for example, maintainers just disappear and we are left only with the code in a .tgz form, possibly a very outdated version … HDD crashes (at the developers computer) and the most recent code that hasn’t been released is just *poof* gone … We have a difficult time monitoring the development that could led to spotting problems sooner and also we have a harder time running automate QA tasks.

This issue was discussed a bit on pear-dev and everyone seemed to agree that requiring people to use SVC isn’t too much to ask.

The saga begins :-) && PEAR::Validate

So finally “finished” the layout of this blog and actually _wrote_ a blog post so now you guys can “enjoy” this blog ;) Jibby!

As some of you might know, I’ve been splitting Validate into smaller packages, so called subpackages, now why am I doing it you might be asking ? Well simply put, why should you need to download the whole freaking thing with US validation stuff and more when you only email validation ? :-)

We’ll try to release these great changes (hey we also have bugfixes and a lot of BC breaks! ;)) as soon as we can, but at the moment we’re kinda stuck because of time issues, Pierre is working at PHP 5.1 stuff and I\’m busy with other things like the “rewrite” of the PEAR Tree package, some LiveUser work and a lot of other stuff not needed to be mentioned here, plus we both have a real life … For real, I’m not lying O:-)
