How to build your own CMS, and why you shouldn't

For a while now we've been looking for a competent alternative to compete with Drupal. When a client requests a Content Management System (CMS), our go-to-technology has always been Drupal. Lately, however, we've had a growing need for a custom CMS solution.

How to save a kitten by writing clean code

So you came here to save a kitten? That's wonderful, but the real reason we're both here is to talk about clean code. In this blog post I'll be sharing some of my personal experiences and tips. But before we dive into the tips and tricks part, let's talk about what we, as developers, do and why we do it. 

Migrate from svn to git

Git is becoming more popular in favor of svn, as everyone knows. In this post, we'll show you how to easily migrate from svn to git. Make sure (on ubuntu for example) that you have the git-svn package installed. It should be available from your default repositories.

Using Complex Type with Zend_Soap

To be able to use complex types with Soap requests, they need to be fully defined in the WSDL file. Zend_Soap can automate this process, if you know how to define those complex types.

Introduction to Sass

Sass, or Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets, promises us to rid us from annoyances over CSS. And it delivers!

Split and import a very large database with PHP

I had to import a SQL-file with a size of over 20Gb into a mysql-database but ran into a lot of problems doing this. I don't have the best server in the world so this import takes about 8 hours to complete and I noticed that after a few hours the import stopped or my connection broke down so I had to start the import again. I've tried it for 5 times without succes and got a little frustrated so I decided to write a little and simple PHP-script to split this large file into smaller pieces so I could import these pieces and eventually easily resume the script after the connection broke down.

Change folders for Synology media server

When you enable the Synology Media Server on your NAS, there are 3 directories added to your file-system (video, music and photo) which will be used for the DLNA/UPnP media server to play the corresponding files.

I wasn't very happy with these 3 directories because I wanted to categorize my media in other directories. In this post, I will show how I've resolved this problem.

Hacking WEP encryption on Ubuntu

The information below is not intended to harm other people. Cracking other peoples network is considered illegal in most countries!! Last day, my sister called me up because she couldn't connect to her wireless network any more. She was playing with her network connections and broke everything. She didn't know the key for her wireless access point and the access point couldn't be reset because it's on the attic and we couldn't reach it.
