WP Hack:- The mmYY Search

Posted by on in iDevelop | 0 comments

When I downloaded WP(WordPress) for the first time & had endless problems running it, I never thought that in barely a month’s time, I’d have my own WordPress powered Blog up & running & I’d be writing my own custom hacks for it, since I barely knew PHP then(till last month). 😉
But my determination has brought me here so far & it was it which made me learn PHP, install WP & now, I know enough PHP to write some basic but useful Hacks for WP. 😀
Now that I’ve my WP powered Blog up & running for about a month, I think that its time to get the inside look on this popular Blog script. I’ve been in between a rock & a hard place all this April, coordinating my workload with my PHP encounters & I’m happy that I’ve been improving with each encounter.
When I was able to install WP, I ported my month & year based search hack from my old blog to WP. 😉
But today I’ve made it a proper WP Hack, using the my-hacks.php file & encapsulating the code snippet into a function. You can try it by selecting the month & year from the drop-down lists below the calendar on your right side. 😀

Towards OOP in PHP

I think that its time that I structure my PHP code more efficiently. I mean that I think its time that I move onto OOP(Object Oriented Programming) in PHP, I think that I know enough of PHP by now to venture into the world of OO. 😉

After building my first PHP based website fully powered by MySQL Database(http://www.igeek.info/), I now know that though connecting to MySQL database in PHP is quite easy, it can be further simplified by making re-usable functions to execute the same lines of code instead of writing them again & again. 😀
In any pages that utilise a database connection & do some manipulation be it getting some results or insertion of data or updation etc, it would be foolish to write down the same lines of code(for connecting to database) again & again. I never did that even in ASP, then why should I do it in PHP? 😉 😐

Secret of Google Power?

Posted by on in iDevelop | 0 comments

I found a great Blog entry by Rich Skrenta at Topix.net, which sheds some light on how GOOGLE is doing it all. The power behind Google.

It suggests the possibility of a new Google OS & the way its putting steam in the field with OS researchers on it payroll, with Rob Pike, a member of original UNIX team at Bell Labs, joining Google. Google employees bat deep when it comes to research in OS, networking, distributed systems, compiler optimisation, thread migration and distributed shared memory. 8) 😕
