I haven’t had the time to write more tips because I’ve been working on a big project which is almost complete.
As soon as I can, I wanna share with you guys some tips/tutorials on how to do more complex SQL queries like combining different JOINs and such. I’ll be using MySQL for this. Later, I’ll put examples using MSSQL.
WordPress 2.1 Ella has been released a few hours ago. I just upgraded my blog to this new version and it’s just awesome. These are some of its new features:
- Autosave makes sure you never lose a post again.
- Our new tabbed editor allows you to switch between WYSIWYG and code editing instantly while writing a post.
- The lossless XML import and export makes it easy for you to move your content between WordPress blogs.
- Our completely redone visual editor also now includes spell checking.
You can read more on their release page.
The guys at WordPress.org rock!
Lately, I’ve been receiving help requests (on the articles I’ve written) through this blog. For obvious reasons, I really wouldn’t like the comments area of the articles to be filled with help requests nor code so that someone can help to find out what’s ‘wrong’ with it.
The comments area of every article I’ve posted is just for, well, comments and/or contributions.
I really don’t mind people asking for help, in fact, I will be glad to lend a hand whenever I can, but please, do it in the right place: the Forum. That’s why I set it up. It makes sense, doesn’t it?
Because the forum is new and with a handful of users, chances are that I’ll be able to assist you in a prompt manner (at least, I hope so). Besides, posting on the forum can help others who may have the same questions like you.
Okay, the forum is live. Feel free to join and ask your questions or contribute helping others.
I’m planning to add a forum to my site. This will be done on a trial basis and will continue only if the forum is being utilized.
Like any other web development forum, its purpose will be to try to help people who can’t find an answer to a question they may have. If I know such answer, I will gladly post it on the forum.
Also, if you have a question on any of the articles that I have written on this blog, please feel free to use the forum to ask your question.
The forum will require you to register. Sorry, I know that you might only have one question and you would rather not to register but, to avoid spam, registration is required.
If you would like to collaborate and enjoy helping others, you’re more than welcome to register and start helpin’! .
Hopefully, the forum will be a place where we all can learn from one another.

I haven’t been able to update this blog for quiet some time due to some projects I’ve been working on.
I do have a couple of articles I want to post. One of them is how to parse XML strings in Firefox and IE. This is something that took me some hours to figure out because even though there are some tutorials out there explaining how to do this, they didn’t really work for me – and probably I’m not the only one who had this ‘problem’. So, I hope someone will find it useful.
Finally, I would like to share with you something that my C++ teacher used to tell us:
“Remember, in programming there is always more than one way to accomplish something; the more efficient, the better”.
Happy New Year!
Well, today – August 7th, 2005 – I’m still working on the site…
Besides, I got busy taking care of some other projects.
As ‘small’ as it may seem, this project it’s all the contrary… Writing articles and tutorials take time, especially when I’m doing it in two languages.
I even might re-design the look of the site. This is because I ‘discovered’ a new CSS technique that I would like to apply here, but that’s something I still need to think about. We’ll see.
