If the title of this blog post doesn’t explain it enough here it is.
This evening, well early morning, I was trying to get XML_RPC to install as the native extension.Â I had previously install PHP 5.1.6 with the mbstring extension enabled to make a pesky phpMyAdmin error about it go away.
Well this time it caught up with me.Â I tries to compile PHP with the same previous settings, now adding XML_RPC.Â Well thank heavens for the bug tracking system at PHP, I found out why I failed.
Here is the link to why it failed.
Hope this can help someone out there! Until next time, happy coding, and remember, always practice safe hex.
I posted earlier on how to Get Rich with PHP5.
In that article Rasmus Lerdorf writes about how to use a certain set of debugging tools as well as PECL packages and database modifications to really tweak some serious speed out of your PHP web application.
I use a powerbook G4 for my PHP hackery, so some of the tools he mentioned are not available with a deault OSX 10.4 installation.Â So I thought, hey lets write a how to install to make this work!!
First lets get a little tool called http_load. Get it here.
Untar the file.
tar zxvf http_load-12mar2006.tar.gz
I recommend copying http_load to a directory like /usr/local/bin or /usr/local/sbin … basically somewhere in your path 🙂
Now lets install kcachegrind.Â For that, follow this link over to the stray notes blog.

Running Kcachegrind on Mac OSX 10.4
Now with both of those installed, you should be ready to go!
Debug your hearts out people!

When I buy a house, you can count on me putting one of these in.

I am very grateful for this bit of sleuthing that went on at the AI3 blog.
I am using this nice little hack, and will certainly use it on my all other blogs.
I love Robert Cringely’s pulpit column at PBS.org.
He always has a depth to his analysis that I appreciate.
Last week, he talked about YouTube because c’mon, WHO HASN’T! For crying out loud, my grandmother asked me about it. If there is anyone out there who says that YouTube isn’t a common household word, I challenge you!!! My grandmother knows about YouTube. I cant get over it.
The most quoteable line from the article in my opinion is
“YouTube is the factory outlet of commercial television, at least for now.”
He says this because he feels like the big media conglomerates are going to be dumping old television pilots and series that never made primetime, have already been paid for, yet give their network visibility.
We shall see.
Is YouTube the next evolution of TV? Robert seems to think that it is up to us! That is because it is a social network. It ceases to be used when people dont use it.
Thanks Robert for your column!
How to Build a Low Cost Internet Appliance Server
Here is an awesome article on how to convert that old x86 server into a sweet Internet Appliance Server.
(Think print server!!!)
I am all over this!

This is a very interesting article surrounding how to build a database in a collaborative environment of developers.
Managing a Honeypot
This is a great Sys Admin article over at OReilly having to do with administering a Honeypot.
I heard a great story about some security experts who caught some Eastern European blackmailers.
I will probably need to get one of these set up for collabofit.com in the near future, once it goes crazy.
iPod Nike Plus Hack
AH HA! I have found it.
Now it is just a matter of time before I write the iTunes Plugin to scrape the data up to Collabofit.com
for tracking on our site as well!!!!

Oh Rasmus, you are so wise!
A good read for all of your PHP5 nuts out there.
I wish I was in norway!
