64 Bit Jungle Forums now open!

Posted by in Linux, Programming, Web Development 28 comments

I’ve decided to create a forum community for 64 Bit Jungle users, and anyone else who would like to join. I guess the forums are an extension to post comments, allow discussion of topics not (yet) covered in any articles or posts on the site, and will hopefully encourage discussion and debate within the community!

Webgrind: Cross-platform Xdebug Profiling Web Frontend

Webgrind: Cross-platform Xdebug Profiling Web Frontend Posted by in Programming, Web Development 7 comments

I’m using Xdebug as my primary PHP debugger. I have it integrated into my Eclipse PDT IDE, and have also been using its profiling capabilities. Until recently, I’ve been using KCachegrind – which has a wonderfully diverse feature set – as my primary profile data visualisation tool. However, as a Gnome user, KCachegrind requires a […]

Merge two images with PHP and GD

Merge two images with PHP and GD Posted by in Programming, Web Development 31 comments

One of the things I really wanted to incorporate into the new site design template, was a nice big, I-really-want-people-to-click-on-this-and-Subscribe-to-my-RSS-Feed image/link/button (big [what the hell is] “Web 2.0” buttons seem to be the in thing at the moment – I didn’t want to feel left out…), which is located at the top right of the […]

I’m probably a little late with this article, since PDT2 has been out for a few weeks now! PDT 2 is an improvement  on v1, and of course, Ganymede is also an improvement on Europa -thankfully, the installation process has also improved and is much easier than my previous post on the subject. There is […]

Gnarly Malware – Hijacks Website .htaccess and Steals Search Engine Traffic

Posted by in Security, Web Development 2 comments

A friend in the US called me a few days ago, asking me to take a look at his website, calypsoislandtours.com, since his site traffic had dropped dramatically, for no obvious reason. Upon further investigation, he discovered that only search engine traffic was affected, which, as with many if not most websites, happened to be […]

Ubuntu Bundle and Widget Debugging on YouBundle

Posted by in Programming, Ubuntu, Web Development 1 comment

YouBundle is finally live! I’m currently trying to do 6 dozen different things, including debugging a really annoying “feature” in the Bundle Widget… For some reason, it only occurs on WordPress blogs, and basically, the page’s style sheet/CSS seems to be overriding the Widget CSS, and adding bullet styles to list items, where I really […]

Posted by in Technology, Web Development No comments

My posts have been few and far between over the past couple of months, since I’ve been working hard on getting YouBundle ready for CEA i-stage! I’m proud that YouBundle has been selected as one of 15 finalists to present on the 20th October (which gives me little time to make the final tweaks and […]

Posted by in Technology, Ubuntu, Web Development 23 comments

I’ve been wanting to set up a virtual host, with mod_rewrite on my system for a while, so I could have a local copy of my blog with Permalinks, for playing around, and despite a few hiccups, have finally got round to setting it up and implementing it successfully. Creating a Virtual Host Note: The […]

64 Bit Azureus BitTorrent Client with 64 Bit JRE

Posted by in Ubuntu, Web Development 2 comments

I love the fact that a huge amount of the applications I regularly use are available via the package manager, but sometimes, I like to install applications myself. Azureus is one such application – I wanted to install the latest x64 version, and utilise the x64 JRE I had installed for the x64 Eclipse IDE. […]
