With his boyish good looks, iPod bribery tactics and an affection for pig skin, his buffoonery is reaping rewards. In the words of Ghandi – “first they ignore you, then they laugh at you, […]

Oh my

Last night was the very first PHP West Midlands meeting in Birmingham. You know, when I considered the idea of setting up a PHP user group, it was a bit of a punt in the dark.

Christian has blogged about Phonon; the KDE multimedia framework touted for KDE4. A while ago at SCALE in Los Angeles I had breakfast with Aaron Seigo and aside from our usual exchange of nob-gags, we discussed Phonon in some detail. One of the biggest problems that I think the KDE team have is the inability […]
