Well this will be my last entry in the blog of wattz, I will be moving to my companies blog as soon as we finish letting the dust settle.
I did want to tell you about my new site and wanted to let you give it a go:
L.OCALHO.ST is a url rewrite site for converting long urls to short urls. So visit it at:
http://l.ocalho.st and give it a shot, Hope you like it!
Well it happened, I have been fighting it for a long time, but it finally happened. I gave in to pure curiosity and bought a book on Ruby (the pickaxe book). The more I read it, the more I started to like the language, the structure, the OO model. The what happened next, you can guess, I bought a rails book and begin playing around with it. It didnt take long to come to the conclusion that I love Rails, and I love what Ruby has to offer. So I have decided to conclude my development in PHP and focus on getting some projects out the door, send them out in to the world with a Rails backbone. I have enjoyed creating stuff in php, but have decided to focus on Ruby for a while. Even going to work on porting phpVideo over to rails, also securityCaptcha. If anyone wants to continue development on phpVideo or any of my other classes, feel free.
Also I have joined forces with a friend and created Frenzy Labs for all of our web creations. on our site (www.frenzylabs.com) we will have a blog where we will post articles, tutorials, and information on our up and coming, to released projects.
We currently just have our blog up and running, and will get to our main page as soon as we get a couple sites done and out the door.
Thanks for reading.
Due to the heavy use I have put myActiveRecord through for my own works. I have updated the code and fixed some stuff and Im calling it version 1.0. You can go to its page and read more or you can download it at: downloads page
Well I added a new tab to my site today. I recently revamped and completed my Captcha (security image) class for php. For use on registration pages and what-not. Well I hope you enjoy. Just click the tab to get all the details.
Well I decided to try something, just to try. I have launched www.ofxo.com (shortest domain I had 🙂 ) which is basically a search engine that uses params in the search instead of tabs or option (radio) buttons. You can do normal searches like any other search engine or you can do “housing: Columbia, SC” and get real estate listings for that city, state.
So take a look at it and see what you guys think. I’m not trying to compete with the other millions of directories or search engines out there. Just wanted to take on the challenge of building this. If you like it and are interested maybe I will write an article “Building your own Search” So if you would like something like that, let me know. Please leave some comments about what you think about Ofxo.com. Thanks for your time and I hope you enjoy!
