1GB of GPRS

April 27, 2005, 4:18 a.m.

My trusty old Siemens S55 has an item called 'GPRS Info' it says a total of 1016.87 MB has been transferred. That's 1GB, if you consider the fact that the sim has spent quite a bit of time inside other phones such as the 6600, the 6630 or the P910i discussed here the total would be much much higher. ...

Payment Gateway Woes

Companies without a US office are at a huge disadvantage when it comes to credit card processing. If you happen to be a Sri Lankan company, accepting credit card payments is like swimming upstream with both hands tied behind your back.When choosing a payment gateway options are really limited for no ...

6630 System Error

April 17, 2005, 10:14 a.m.

Time for another complaint against the nokia 6630. To be fair it may not be a problem with the device itself but a problem with the memory stick that accompanied it.When you attempt to access either the still or video camera you get a nasty message that just says 'System Error'. This happened at a t ...

Subversion FAQ

April 15, 2005, 12:19 a.m. subversion

As the subversion documentation says, a good FAQ is a list of questions people might actually ask and not a list of questions some none geek marketeer dreamt up. These are some questions and answers based on my own experience. Oops, I entered the wrong text when commiting my changes how do I chang ...

The Message Board Wild West

April 12, 2005, 11:41 p.m. toast

I was just checking up on who links here when I realised that message boards and newsletters are getting more of a wild west character each day. Or rather it's a case of the blind leading the blind.It is for this reason that I have not posted anything on the PHP mailing lists for a long time. The PH ...

Ericsson 910i

April 9, 2005, 2:36 a.m.

I have in my hands an Ericsson 910i and I am wondering what all the fuss is about. This is a phone that tries too hard to be too many things at the same time. This expensive phone cannot hold a candle to the 6630 - the other phone I am toying with at the moment. The phone I use on a regular basis ...

April 4, 2005, 7:38 a.m.

A few days ago, I wrote about the Rad File Manager. At the time it was a Java File Manager. That has not changed, Janus had two faces, now Rad File Manager has two backsides!Well jokes apart; Rad File Manager as a newly added PHP web application. As I mentioned in my previous post, this is a softwar ...

phpinfo is a dog

April 1, 2005, 4:59 a.m.

The authors of PHP have a great sense of humour. Anyone who has ever called the phpinfo() method on April 01st (any year) can vouch for the fact.Usually the top of the screen in the phpinfo output page is occupied by the PHP logo, today that place is taken up by a dog. The dog is looking back at you ...
