JIRA is my preference in issue trackers, it’s well designed, flexible, well priced and integrates nicely into my other Atlassian products such as Confluence and Stash and also 3rd party products, for example Jenkins Continuous Integration server.
Another bonus is the external plugins that can be installed either for free or for a varying sum normally dependent on number of users. One of the plugins I had been using was ictime as it enabled me to see a bigger picture of what hours I’d spent working on a project.
I needed to configure an FTP server on my Debian backup box due to some remote windows backup configurations. I initially edited the config files by hand with Vim, but installed a Webmin module to test too. I enabled the
virtual users option, but then decided that this wasn’t actually required as I only needed a single login for the purpose. The problem now, no user was able to login, virtual or otherwise, all I kept getting was the dreaded
530 Login incorrect message.
Pecl extensions, some great, some OK… I was looking to install
Pecl_Http on my CentOS box, except this kept throwing errors.
I’ve used Photoshop to some degree or other for many years now, since version 5 and the one thing that always bugged me, was hitting
Ctrl+Z only undoing the last operation and would toggle that undo as an undo / redo function.
I was working on a sketch earlier and for some reason, while
Ctrl+Zing, I hit also
Alt; what happened? It started to undo not just the last action, but the one before last too, and the one before that and so on!.. so whilst this might be common knowledge for professional Photoshoppers, for myself (and possibly others), this was a most pleasant surprise and makes working with a graphics tablet especially, a lot simpler!
I have a portal site providing quick links to public, private and development projects. I wanted to access this without hindrance from my internal network and one other specified IP address, but also wanted to be able to access this site from anywhere else on the internet, but to keep the access private. A .htaccess file and Basic HTTP Authentication can be combined to specify an IP address to allow access straight through, and to require login credentials for all other access.
While working on a mobile website for Safelite® AutoGlass, I needed to filter out some objects held within an array. This could have simply been hacked with a basic
foreach() loop and some
if() / else() statements, but this wouldn’t have resulted in the most reusable code, so I decided to look at the SPL and its many Iterators.
