    There are some things about the defaults that are horribly annoying ...

    My company moved everyone onto Macs and I couldn't agree with this statement more.

    For the price, I'd expect something like window snapping to be there by default. When it wasn't, I turned to one of my co-workers and asked where the option was to enable it.

    "There's not built in function for it, but you can buy an app for it. It's only 3."

    .... WHAT?!

    This machine just cost the better part of 1500 and they can't even bundle in some window snapping? I'd take Linux back in a heartbeat if I didn't need it for xcode.
  2. In Topic: Mailing crashes when trying to pull from mysql

    Posted 10 Feb 2016

    $s = $conn->prepare("SELECT * FROM provider WHERE ID=".$client["provider"]." LIMIT 1"); 
    $row = $s->fetch();

    You should pass through the provider as a parameter rather than injecting it directly into the query.

    $s = $conn->prepare("SELECT * FROM provider WHERE ID = :client LIMIT 1"); 
    $s->execute(['client' => $client["provider"]]);
    $row = $s->fetch();

    EDIT: Also on line 22 you're missing the '$' from '$client["cell"]'

    I wonder how fast migration will take place, I didn't notice anything that was used often to be deprecated or have a behaviour change, so upgrading can't be -that- much of an ordeal.

    My office set up a test server today with php 7 and nginx to see if we could notice any speed improvements on our current projects.

    All 3 projects worked without changes, straight from the git clone. The only issue we had was a plugin (mpdf) which used two default cases in a switch statement.

    Even with a connection to a remote mysql server, the performance difference on our biggest project was very notable in terms of page load times. That one was written in Zend Framework 2. A smaller project which uses the Laravel 5 framework didn't see much of an improvement - however it also ran very quickly on php 5.6

    I've been looking forward to this release for a while. The benchmark tests definitley look interesting.

    Zend posted this infograph with requests per second on popular php applications.

  5. In Topic: Another Linux Topic?!

    Posted 11 Nov 2015

    It's a matter of taste. You won't know if you like it until you try it. The method of trying it is pretty much irrelevant.

    Personally I prefer most linux flavours over Windows.

    More importantly, learning something new, no matter what it is, will always give you a little more overall knowledge; which will always make you a more valuable employee to any potential employers.

    And it's free.. absoloutley no financial hinderance by trying it out. That's not a benifit that comes along very often.
