ATI Petition for Adequate Drivers in Linux Petition

Are online petitions pointless? I don't know. But I'm an ATI user, and many laptops are ATI based. So let's ask ATI to please make us some decent darned drivers.

PHP Integer size

How to tell how big your php integers are:


$one = 1;
$big = 4294967297;

$mod = sprintf("%u", $big);

$a = ( $one == $mod ) ? 64 : 32;

echo $a. "\n";


Tested on 32 and 64 bit builds of PHP 4.4.1 on Solaris 8 (SPARC).

Mirror, mirror, on the wall

Here comes the mirror man...

On monday I start a new position as the full time developer of JISC Mirror. Yay!

Please send all comments through the normal channels (as opposed to me directly). Obviously there's a lot we (Eduserv) want to do. So let's get it on.
