  1. In Topic: [Link] PHP The Right Way

    TIL, from the article:


    You can start learning PHP without the hassle of installing and configuring a full-fledged web server (PHP 5.4+ required).


    The php dev server is sufficiently different to a production environment for you to spend a while wondering why things work in one and not the other.

    Seriously, how hard is it to install a web server? Even on Windows, it's just a couple of downloads, on a decent OS it's usually a one-liner. If you can't cope with that, you'll struggle with "hello world"...
  2. In Topic: What NOT to do on a company computer...

    • No P2P software at all!

    Unless it's explicitly in the "things we don't allow" list from your company, this doesn't make sense.
    I use and have used lots of P2P software on my work computer: bittorrent, skype, etc. There's nothing wrong with that.

    Yes, I realise this is an old thread. Still counts.
  3. In Topic: Setting up a Remote SSH Server from Scratch

    Posted 11 Jul 2013

    Pretty much. How you run those programs and how you install the build environment depends on what you're compiling and how you have it set up at school I guess.

    Which distro you use isn't going to make much real difference as far as you can see, so I'd say go with Ubuntu since it's got the biggest community. I can't remember if it installs an SSH service by default but if not:
    sudo apt-get install openssh-server

    is all you need (the installation process is different on other distros).
    Putty will serve as an SSH client from your Windows machine though istr it does SSH keys in a maddeningly different way to the rest of the world - for simplicity I'd just go with the default authentication using username/password rather than adding an SSH key into the mix. If your local client machine was running a better OS I'd be recommending the opposite!
  4. In Topic: That moment in time where you just slam your head on the desk

    Posted 11 Jul 2013

    My best effort was probably the following:

    UPDATE `users` SET first_name='Martin'; WHERE id=1234;
  5. In Topic: What's your favorite music player

    Posted 10 Jul 2013

    MPD. Or, lately, squeezebox-server with squeezelite. Loads of clients for android (and probably for other mobile OS but I don't care) and desktop. Everyone in my office can share the library and queue.
