long time, no write:
came here again for a look around - it has been a long time. saw sethcohn's latest entry and couldn't resist one of my own. cheers seth for inspiring me 8^).

what has changed:
have been heavily riding the work rollercoaster. am finally satisfied with where we are at and actually am excited now about going into the office every day. hmm, what else? this year is my third year of writing the PHP Weekly Summary - yikes. saw david gray in concert earlier this year - rockin'. got an x-arcade last year, bad move for my "spare time". my hair is getting slowly going grey.. i am trying to convince myself that it makes me look distinguished 8^) all up, life is super groovy.

regretting my previous diary entry like a bad night on the town.

i appreciate that people have taken time to certify me. i'd just like to point out that i wasn't whinging about not being an Apprentice like some warez'ing IRC newbie who wants +v or +o. The fact of the matter is, i enjoy reading Advogato. Last time I made a diary entry I had a trust level that allowed me to post comments. lkcl recently wrote an article that i really wanted to participate in and couldn't - very frustrating. anyway, enough about that!

new column:
the engine2 column has been launched at zend.com, and they were nice enough to arrange a zend e-mail address for me. the first issue was heaps of fun to write. i hope the traffic on the list stays this high - but with all the talk of PHP 5 there i suspect it may mutate in that direction. ahhh - there is nothing more satisfying than the bleeding edge.

growing frustrated.. i now have 9 (thanks to those who added certs for me since my last post) certifications, all Apprentice. Yet I am told by the system that I am still not certified as Apprentice. Grr.

I wonder if it's broke or if it just doesn't love me 8^)

after months (six?) of account innactivity on this site, it appears i no longer have a rating!


addendum: just tried certifying myself, and it didn't work. drat x 2.

posted a comment in the discussion about XP here on advogato. it is my first non-diary participation, i hope it is useful to someone.

looking forward to helping deekayen with thatware. i have downloaded the code and am going to make a few suggestions that will hopefully make it a much more maintainable piece of software.

netscape 6 is out, and a lot of people seem to be bitching. i hope this has no serious effects on mozilla project.
