  • Colorize
  • Edge Detect
  • Emboss
  • Gaussian Blur
  • Selective Blur
  • Mean Removal

Book Review PHP Hacks
December 01, 2006 @ 11:32:00

On CodeSnipers.com there's a new book review of one of O'Reilly's PHP-related offerings, "PHP Hacks" by "Jack D. Herrington".

I had borrowed a Perl Hacks book from and friend and really liked it, it was great! It had a lot of practical things as well as some fun things. I expected the same from PHP Hacks and I was not disappointed!

She links to both the table of contents and the sample chapter to give you an idea of the feel of the book. There's two main sections in the review covering both aspects of the book - the Practical Stuff and the Fun Stuff. Of course, no book is perfect, so there is one thing she mentions that wasn't really worked into the book, but you'll need to read the review to find out what.

Tim Bray's Blog:
PHP Calendar Fun
January 09, 2006 @ 06:30:30

In a pointer from this blog post on Adam Trachtenberg's site today, there's a story of some struggles that Tim Bray has been having when it comes to online calenders and coordinating with those in his life.

Here's the problem: Dr. Wood and I both have complicated jobs plus we have a family, so just like everyone else in the world, keeping in sync is a problem. Herewith a painful half-finished story of trying to solve it with technology. The conclusion is painfully obvious: whoever first provides a family-scheduling tool that non-geeks can use and Just Works with the tools most people run their calendars on is going to make a lot of money and do Humanity a major service.
