Yesterday brought the release of the Movable Type Developer Edition, so keeping with my reputation of being an early adopter, I upgraded immediately. The upgrade went smoothly, but I have to say that there doesn’t appear to be many new features, especially to warrant a 3.0 version number. The administration interface is cleaned up and […]
It’s been awhile since I last wrote, and a lot has happened in that time. I have been really busy with both work and school the month, although that’s not really anything new. I’ve been doing a lot of little projects and activities for work, and it almost feels like I’ve been running in place […]
While I’m waiting for my Virtual PCs to finish installing, I’ve been doing more research and reading on some advanced PHP topics. Many of these topics were at least touched on during the PHP|Cruise conference last week, so I’ve at least heard of them before.

I just saw today that pMachine, maker of the pMachine Pro web publishing software (think Movabletype based on PHP instead of Perl), has released a public beta for ExpressionEngine, their new web publishing product. Looking at its list of features, it seems very impressive. Some of the things that caught my eye: Customized work-flows for […]
Friday was my first full day of working on my Apple PowerMac G4 at the office, and I have to say that I didn’t miss Windows XP much at all. I installed Mac OS 10.3 (Panther) last week, and I’m very happy with it. Expose is addicting, especially with the way I work (with 10+ […]
