PHP v5.3 and Namespaces
We’re excited to announce the framework for osCommerce Online Merchant v3.0 is being optimized to use the newer features PHP v5.3 provides, primarily focusing on implementing namespaces into the core. In addition to namespaces, the namespace coding…
You may be wondering why I have not kept up with the site of the month posts. Recently, a featured store option has been added on to the live shops directory. Now, instead of sites of the month, I will be proposing featured sites to the rest of the osCommerce team. When I do select a featured site, I will also blog about why I choose that site if it is approved by the rest of the team.

I registered on the English and German osCommerce forums back in February 2003 when I first got in contact with the project. I posted and answered questions and made some contributions to existing add-ons. Two years ago in December 2007, Harald asked me if I’d like to become an official team member which I gladly accepted. Since then I’ve been helping with the German and English documentation, the German language pack for osCommerce 3.0, as well as some small bug fixes here and there. Currently, I’m working on a wireframe for the front end layout of version 3.0.

There have been a number of comments made about the license change of osCommerce 3.x to the BSD. This post aims to dispel some of the confusion around the change and will hopefully be the primer for a proper FAQ on www.oscommerce.com when I have some time. If there are any questions you have…
May the 4th B with you. B, as in “Big Bird.”
It’s not surprising that a photo of a terrorist with a bullet hole in his face would turn Sarah Palin on. The way she asks for it to be released though, is an interesting bit of dishonesty.
“Show photo as a warning to others seeking America’s destruction.”
I’m imagining a group of terrorists sitting around a computer, pulling up a photo of Osama Bin Laden’s corpse, and one saying “WHOA GUYS, if we try to ‘destroy America’ they might try put BULLETS in our FACES. We better knock this malarkey off ASAP. Return that fertilizer to the hardware store and let’s use the fuel we’ve stockpiled to power the generator at my nephew’s school for a few weeks.”
Terrorists, especially of the Jihadi variety, are frequently prepared for and SEEKING death, whether it comes in the form of a bullet, explosion, or underpants conflagration on a Detroit-bound flight.
But I presume Sarah Palin knows this. So her tweet is both “politicking” and “drama.” It’s theater, in fact.
And way to wrap it up with “That’s the mission.” Though she didn’t shoehorn the words “Islam” or “Muslim” into her clunker of a tweet, she did finish it with a word whose definitions include “a group of people sent by a religious body, esp a Christian church, to a foreign country, to do religious work.”
I’m glad she was so transparent about what her “mission” is. And let’s also salute her for sneaking the word “pussy” in there. Osama Bin Laden is killed while Barack Obama is President, and Sarah Palin’s immediate response is to explicitly link him with the word “pussy.” Would she have worked the word “cocky” in there if he released the photo?
To conclude, her tweet is bloodthirsty, purposefully dishonest, willfully ignorant, xenophobic and rude. It’s a fantastic snapshot of who she is.
My father always told me that the day we stop learning is the day we die. I wrote this as a sort of preparation for my 35th birthday last week. Some of these are poignant, others are simply trite; I attribute the latter to my growing sense of sentimentality as I age. That, and I need an editor.
So there you are, trolling through the listings at fanfiction.net. Everything would be just fine, some nice new stories, but there’s this obnoxius character you just can’t stand paired with your personal favourite character. It burns your eyes, yes it does!
Fear not. This extension for Safari will hide any and every story from your eyes, if the hated character shows up in the pairing.
Download and install Block Fanfic Characters to avoid brain bleach and eye-gouging.
If you put your mental health at risk by reading fanfic, I imagine this will come in handy.
Notifier was broken for a bit after Tumblr changed they way they handle new post notifications. I’m happy to report it’s now back up and running. If you have Safari and love getting notified when new content appears in your Dashboard, grab it! You don’t even need to enter your credentials anymore.
Source code is available as always.
I don’t usually repost the same extension, but it was a shame when this one stopped working. Good to have it back.
