Just this goy...

Learning about classes this morning, and all kinds of inter-related topics (like ${$varname} to dynamically access a global-scope variable within a function/class, which is pretty weird if you ask me.)

But now I'm off to wash togs.
Okay... I'm still down with this virus, which is really thrashing my throat... but I want to get a bit of work on set_block.inc.php in this morning before heading off to wash laundry.

And on a side note... just sent a check to Calvert for Misha's tuition.

Although rather under the weather, I did manage to help out on an installation of sdms, and more work on the repair to weblink.php. I'm pretty sure my fix works, but we'll see over the next couple of weeks.

Need to dig into set_block.inc.php today. Then finish up the phpageviews module, install it successfully, and set it running for a bit just to get some history with it.

Trying to dig into the mainfile... working on the session initialization. Have built a variable buffer filter tool for post/get variables.
Despite the distractions (going to the YMCA, etc.) I've managed to complete a theme.php, header.php, and footer.php as well as create a style.css in dreamweaver. Mind you, the vast majority of the code is a diet-version of the phpws default theme -- apparently there's a lot of legacy code in theme.php.
Okay, this morning I'm trying to re-build the theme layout in Dreamweaver, and it'sa notsogood. Have to say, though, that the style.css pallette in DW is mighty-fine.

I should mention what I did, though...

I decided to skip ahead and build the theme files, which blossomed out to include theme.php, header.php, bbp-inc.php, bbp-index.php, bbp-config.php (which is beginning to bloat), bbp.sql (which is *not*. Yet.) style.css, and theme.html (a test platform for the theme appearance built in dreamweaver... which I really should use more so I can build the style.css at the same time.)

The focus of the work thus far is building the main website table as a theme. Later I'll build the front end which handles the sessions and some of the pre-html and header stuff.

Wow! a great break-thru session of coding, about 300 lines of code and style sheet in just over 3 hours.

But now I've hit the wall, and the caffeine is fading... tomorrow is another day.

I think I'm here... Codito Ergo Sum?

I also learned how to explode blogger.com... turn off cookies (and therefor the session cookie) and watch vbscript errors fly...
Now then... I've successfully:
  • created sessions
  • registered session variables
  • passed session_id as a GET variable
  • destroyed sessions

I don't think I can manipulate the session.use_cookies variable in php.ini, so I'll need to learn how to destroy the session cookie in the browser. I also need to learn how to manage garbage collection in php, session.gc_maxlifetime and session.gc_probability.
Okay, I can deal with using the ugly 40-some byte GET linkage... I think.
If a client loads the website, they will be randomly assigned a 32-byte session id. This id is unique. Now, let's say they log in to the website. If their username is unique, could it not be used as their session id?

No, because it is theoretically possible their username could be 32 bytes in length, and that the php session management routines could randomly generate an exact match. I think.
Let me see if my logic is going okay tonite...

Yep, site is there. Cute, too.
Cool! the new host is apparently online. And soon, now, the domain name.

Fine. I'm back home, after a rather wasted day in the TC. Frustrated.

Okay, this was interesting. Not.

Kept getting errors today whenever I tried to publish the various blog entries... something about the log being full.
Okay, weird problems attempting to install phpws on paganinstitute. And now issues attempting to upload to E's uofmn website.
Unfortunately, that's about all I *did* get to work. As soon as the script encounters a "function" definition, it explodes.

So, good morning new efforts.

WooHoo!! (dancing the "I'm-so-cool" dance 'cuz I got a routine to print 'hello world' in theme)

Okay, so I'm lame.
And a bright and cheery morning to you, too!
