High technology vs e-mail services

September 20th, 2006

It is hard to imagine that even in our time of high technology there are places which the progress can not reach. Moreover, the more this progress can reduce possible profit, the longer time they are restraining it by all available means. Read the rest of this entry »

PDF functions

September 19th, 2006

The PDF functions in PHP can create PDF files using the PDFlib library which was initially created by Thomas Merz and is now maintained by PDFlib GmbH.

All of the functions in PDFlib and the PHP module have identical function names and parameters. Unless configured otherwise, all lengths and coordinates are measured in PostScript points. There are generally 72 PostScript points to an inch, but this depends on the output resolution. Please see the PDFlib Reference Manual included in the PDFlib distribution for a more thorough explanation of the coordinate system used.

PDFlib Lite is available as open source. However, the PDFlib Lite license allows free use only under certain conditions. PDFlib Lite supports a subset of PDFlib’s functionality; please see the PDFlib web site for details.

Now we are working to program PHP scripts to make equivalents of these tasks:

Bad-Sector stuff

December 18th, 2002

Would like to spread the word to PHP developers about some opportunities.Hey what’s up, I am working on a project website and am looking for anyone interested in helping. Currently its just me though. I have designed the page myself (although when the code structure is done several different layouts will be available) and currently have a user authentication system in place along with tools for literature including stories / poems / journal entries / dream logs, this is of course just something I wanted to do the main focus of the page will be providing services to the public and developers alike however as you can tell by the design of the page I am more interested in the younger generation and what they have to offer. If you are ‘cool’ like different things than the normal mainstream or just love to write code all night long with the music cranked drop me a line at zulu_gold@hotmail.com

Also a new service for developers ::: http://www.bad-sector.org/dtraq.php Track who is downloading what from your website and then contact them later about updates or announcements.

I’m bummed about it, but my current work and family responsibilities are keeping me away from my keyboard.

I’m open for suggestions about how to speed up the release process. Anyone?
