In the absence of anything else to write about, I thought it was about time?
I look to the world around me for inspiration. So whats new out there? ?
Well, PHP 4.3.5RC1 for starters.?
Whilst the developement time is busily working away on PHP 5, the QA team?
is still trying to get PHP 4 as perfect as possible. Fair play I say. Nobody?
can say that PHP is a hack language thrown together by a bunch of?

On the database front, MySQL AB has announced MySQL version 5.0. This new version is set to?
contain more Enterprise oriented services including much awaited Stored?
Procedures. MySQL 5.0 is still in the alpha phase of developement (buggy and changable?
without notice) but it is downloadable for testing, should you happen to be?
brave… or dumb!

A new website has been set up at http://www.aquasail.net the aim of which is to document the?
life and times of the yacht Mystere and her crew. The boat is currently out of?
the water and under going winter maintanence work, but watch out for her in?

Thanks to this article on phpPatterns.com I am now?
looking at what is probably the latest UML design tool to provide PHP code?
generation support for PHP. Should all go well, I shall be testing ArgoUML with?
the design of Tamagotree. The results of which will be posted here.

Also, thanks to phpPatterns.com, I am investigating the benefits of a?
funky PHP framework called Mojavi which is available from http://www.mojavi.org. From the little I have?
read about it to date, it is partly based around the Command Pattern. You?
can read more about Command Pattern implementation in PHP by read this article on phpPatterns.
