A Comment Unheard?

It’s interesting to me that the following, my comment to a post from Stefan Esser, was not approved/included in its comments:

So, are you angry because the entry was changed or because all the evidence points
to Chris S.? Because I can’t really tell.

Honestly, it really doesn’t reflect well on the Hardened-PHP project to have pety
issues like this brought up by one of its key members.

Are you upset about the content of the new item? If so, what part are they missing?
I go to the Hardened-PHP site and all I see are links to download the patch (as the
new version says) and some barely used forums. Where is the “dedication to promote
and teach secure PHP programming”?

Chris does well to have posts on his blog to help share security issues related to
both the bugs in PHP and just general common errors.

This post just seems a little inflammatory to me – of course that seems par for the
course for Stefan.

And yes, there were other comments posted after it, so it’s not a case of “just haven’t gotten to it yet”. Hmm…


Writing on

As I’m sure several of you know, besides, I’ve also been running another news site, Unfortunately, I just didn’t have time for both, and rather than allowing both news sites to suffer, I’m no longer going to post over on

It’s not all bad news, though. I’ve been talking to the guys over on (a very good Ajax-oriented site, if you haven’t seen it) and things have been set up for me to be an author over there now. AjaxDeveloper, being an entire site standing on its own was a bit of work – that’s the part I didn’t have enough time for. So, with this new arrangement, I can post the things I normally would have on AjaxDev and contribute what I can to the Ajax community.

I’ve already posted several things and have mentioned to the other authors that there probably will be a lot more PHP-related content coming to the site as well…
