Google Wave... Anyone?

24 November 2009 - 02:16 AM

Anyone managed to get into google wave? Finally I managed to get in... google sent me an invite :) Looks awesome.. something that I needed a year and a half ago, but I guess I'll use it when I need it, now that I have it :)

So what ya think? (if you managed to get in)

Diploma Question

22 November 2009 - 11:43 PM

Since I moved to Au I applied for University and I showed them my BTEC National Diploma in Computing.. and they recognized it as Certificate IV in Computing... is that good or what? (I'm planning to continue to bachelors etc..)

functions.php, is that security threat?

12 November 2009 - 10:31 PM

I believe a lot on OOP because it makes life easier.. so, in PHP (for my latest project) I decided to make a functions.php and make every function there and then in the actual page I will only call a couple functions and the page will be properly displayed with all the components I want in it and with a simple call I can whatever component I want in whatever page I want.. but does this luxury come as a security threat?

for example the admin login process (which even if some ******* makes an SQL injection he will not be able to login still, because he will need something else) I made everything (nearly) hardcoded in the admin file it's self.. is that more secure or it would not make a difference if I had to code that as a function in functions.php


php uniqid()

11 November 2009 - 06:15 PM

I need to generate some unique ids for me to put in a database as a primary key. Now, is there a chance that a unique id will be generated more than once?

I read online that it will be a 13 character long string, but I will only use the first few characters... so will that increase the chance of having duplicates?

And as this will be a primary key if the same key is generated twice it will cause an error... should I worry about checking if the key already exists (in which case this will add another extra query) or I should not bother about it?

Network Gaming, use sockets or SQL?

21 October 2009 - 04:42 AM

I was thinking, which is the best way to use for multiplayer games... use sockets or one centralized server with a database and a table holding all the info (for example the x,y of the player etc) and the clients will always get that data.. i know it might be slower, but isn't that worth it.. because that way you will not have to design a server side, because the db will have everything, so you will concentrate on the client side only.. is that better or worse?
