Re: Possible New Features in PHP 5.5

Frankly, the most practical one I'm glad about is that empty() will work without having to pass a variable. It's quite bothersome that it's been a language construct instead of a function up to this point. I also like the idea of being able to use array access on strings and such.

Re: Charge for Upload Time

On the contrary, I'm loving this digression. This actually brings me to another question: How much do you charge for what?

How much do you change for what?

Hello, world! I'm curious, what do you charge for doing different things? How would you compare that against your skill level? How much for system administration? Programming? DB administration? Meetings? Years of experience? How do you bill, mostly hourly or mostly by bid? How does that pertain to ...

You're correct, advice is the word you're looking for. "advice is a noun, "advise" is a verb.

Re: my program just gone crazy

What is the "view source" you are talking about? Another software? Ah, I should have been more clear. Right-click on the page in your browser and select "View source". Browse through the code that comes up and look for the text field, and see if it has a value set in the source ...

Re: How to implement an Email Change Function?

The validation email to the new account is just to make sure the email is correct, as my application requires a valid email so I can contact the user.

Re: my program just gone crazy

Are you talking about some HTML content, or just the value of the text field? Perhaps you could use view source to see if your code is populating the field's value, or the browser. Without any code, we can't give much guidance, an excerpt where the problem seems to be originating would be helpful.

Re: Who's using git? I've got questions

Excellent advice Chris. @flying_circus, my method is very similar to Chris's, except I usually do what you're doing on the server instead of using a private GitHub repository. I create a "git" user, dedicated to managing any Git repositories. In all, I have three clones of the repository: ...

Re: PHP alert?

I just mean that echo automatically casts the variable to string, and outputs whatever that gives.
