If you are reading this you are subscribed to my old blog site or arrived here via a google search or something similar. You can find my new blog at dcousineau.com. I will be making no further updates to this blog. I may or may not import my old posts into the above site but [...]
Naturally it’s been over a month since I’ve updated and rather than posting something techincal I feel I should be a little selfish and announce that: I’M GOING TO BE SPEAKING AT ZENDCON 09! I will be giving my talk on automated deployment techniques with Phing. To say that I’m excited is quite an understatement. [...]
Hey everyone, my brother is actually blogging! Check out Eric Cousineau’s blog. Right now it’s looking like the focus of his posting will be about Digital Mars D programming language. Everyone go give him some traffic and encourage him to keep posting!
Just made a few changes to the blog. I added a recaptcha to the comment system as well as subscribing to the comments via email. I also updated the code highlighter so we get the pretty boxes and line numbering (and the code will look much nicer on skinnier browsers). I also added my résumé [...]
Unfortunately, Elizabeth Smith mentioned on twitter that PHP 5.3′s new garbage collector is based on a paper written by a man named Bacon (pdf here). We now have Bacon’s garbage collector… Announcing PHP 5.3: Now With More Bacon!! Spread the meme.

They both pulled through just fine and everything is back to normal. I hope to be [...]
I’m currently out for the weekend, brother’s graduated high school! When I get back I’ve got some updates for the hierarchical data post, and should have a post ready on using rsync and phing for remote deployment.
In my previous article (Microsoft Access and PHP), I discussed getting mdbtools setup and dynamically interacting with a instance of mdb-sql. Well it turns out somewhere in the pipeline (probably mdb-tools), we’re either not getting an EOF or reading an EOF right and as such I can read lines from the program’s STDOUT stream, but [...]
My (Our, Chris included) slides have been featured on the front page of SlideShare’s website! Small time success yes, but success none the less. Take that Ed Schipul, my slides are right next to yours! (Btw Ed, I still think your presentation you gave to refreshBCS was good, but I still disagree with your thoughts [...]
