I'm having a persimmon for the first time. They look similar to tomatoes, but they're very different on the inside.

I just finished porting all my PHP tools to JavaScript :O Here are a couple of messages that I sent to a friend explaining why:
I translated between one computer language to another. I made some tools a few years ago in PHP. PHP is a language that runs on the server, rather than in the browser, meaning that it takes an internet request every time that you want to run the tool. However, JavaScript runs in the browser, meaning that it is instant and open-source. My purpose in translating the PHP tools to JavaScript was consolidating each one into pure JavaScript. This makes the tools able to run independent of the server. I also find JavaScript to be a better language than PHP from a technical standpoint.
Yeah. The tools are useless but do some cool things. They're available on my website under the "tools" section. At a rate of one tool a day, it took four days for the translation. Being in JavaScript makes the tools more portable, which should make it easier to migrate to WordPress, which I'm planning to do, and it helps leave a legacy since they're open-source xD I must say that it was a good exercise that cemented my confidence in computer languages. You know how they say you don't understand one language until you understand two? It looks like that applies to computer languages too xD

Ugh! Just debugging PDO and it took me a while to determine that the error was being caused by the string concatenation in the second argument to bindParam, because it's passed by reference, whereas with bindValue, it's not passed by reference.

I decided to race two cars today in a school area when it was the end of school, and I ended up running faster than them. After I initiated that, I felt an adrenaline rush. I was running at my maximum, I couldn't stand walking and my default pace was running, and I didn't get tired, but when I did, I recovered pretty quickly. Wow, so that's what an adrenaline rush is like.

I was confused on how WordPress handled header HTML tags before, but now I just realised that the post title is H1 only on the post page itself. So, I should use H2.

I was wondering why WordPress was showing my posts in full in a list of them: http://www.thewordcracker.com/advanced- ... y-excerpt/
