defmacro Functional Programming For The Rest of Us

My good buddy James recommended this article to me.
I haven’t read all of it yet (a good long read) but the part I read about Hot Swapping code in mission critical environments read really well …
I look forward to finishing it … in the words of Jim Gaffigan … Tomrwo … Tomrows …. tomur …….. NEXT WEEK!!!

When I get some free Time …..

Jim Gaffigan … you are a comedic genius!!!!

Earlier, I had written about a new joint venture between the PHP project, ZEND Studios, and IBM Eclipse project.

You can download it today!!!!!!

Hooray for PHP IDE!!!!

Today, I spent time digging through the crontab file on a server out on the internets.

Wondering why all of sudden the cron jobs I set up stopped working.

If anyone was wondering how to mail yourself if the *nix user your cron job is running under is not where you check you email, then hopefully this post can give you a hand.

Your cron job should look like this

30 12 * * * * “command to use” “full path to script”

That would execute the script everyday at 12:30 (Server Time … Dont forget those Time Zones all you remote admins!!!).
Once script execution is done, it will then email the results of the script to the user executing. Somewhere outthere in wonderland, if the script outputs anything to stdout, it would show up on the screen, and then email those results to the user.

If you want to also email the results to an address not on the machine, then do the following:

30 12 * * * * “command to use” “full path to script” | mail -s “Test”

This would use the *nix pipe command to push the results of script execution in an email to “” with “Test” as a subject.

Hope this helps!!!
