cloud, hosting, rackspace
So what is cloud hosting?

We all heard this new buzzword "cloud", and I have some clients that absolutly want to be on the "cloud" but don't even really know what it is...
But the truth is no one really know what cloud is.

That it's, it's just a buzzword to make you feel bigger (normally there is some pills for that, but theses day, the important thing,...

vaielab rant, government
I love my country, and I'm proud to be canadian... ever more proud to come from Quebec.
But sometime, seriously, I feel like my government is so stupid!

Here, I'm not talking about corruption, or bad decision in general (because everybody knows we are good at making them), I'm talking about decision made by 50-60years old people who know nothing about te...


Password manager

password manager, ie, security
If you read what I post on the forum, you probably already know that I really suggest using a password manager (see http://forum.codecal...ols-do-you-use/ section about keypassx)

KeepassX and other software with the same functions are awesome... without them, I probably had the exact same password for all my website,...

Programming license

If tomorow I would like to give someone a medical prescription, it will be illegal, because I'm not a doctor.
If I wanted to drive a car, I would need a driver permit (well I actually have that one)
If I tell everyone I'm a police officer, it's illegal, since I'm not one for real.
If I wanted to kill someone, it still would be illegal, since...


Win of the day

Today, (5minutes ago) I did something I don't do so often: I solven a problem that I've been working on for the last past month.
One month of work for this moment.
I don't know if the feeling is simply mental, or there a physical reaction too like adrenaline, but **** it feel good.
That precise moment is probably the thing I like the most in computer, a big...


The bosses bad decisions based on...

In my last full time job (since then I'm a free lancer), I had to make a website for the compagny I've been working for.
The boss wanted something dynamic, young, and hip (his word). So the designer did everything with a lots of colors, everything round... and everything was moving, all the time.
The website was made in flash, 100% flash, the whole website...

The other day, I finded a old hard drive, and when I tested it, I discover some backup of one of my first project.

It was written in PHP (PHP 3), and it make me think.
PHP was my first real language (I did some mIRC script before that) and I have to admit, I changed my mind a lot of time about PHP.

First, PHP wasen't a language, it was only a way to...
