Hello World


This week

SoFestive


Inside the Calendars

The "Badvent" war continues, with some of Rockford's calendar lacking paint, and some of Jay's calendar lacking any kind of christmas vibe.
Which is worse?
Make your choice in the thread below.

Inside the Creative Mind

Shroom_Monk continues his city-building exercise, with towers and paths and more.
Meanwhile, Jay keeps drawing rectangles, to the point where his head screams for something different.

PHP Alpha

Jay struggles to get Alpha drawing to work "as he'd expect", using PHP's GDLib.
Who decided Transparency should go up to 127?!
solid!!
Jay hasn't attempted to fix this issue yet, due to the aforementioned "No more rectangles!!" shouting event, but promises to return to the topic before New Year.

SoStayIndoors


Christmas is coming, and you know what that means!!
Extra lockdowns rules.
Here in England, you can meet up with three family bubbles, as long as you all wear fluffy slippers, and sing renditions of Last Christmas by Wham.
If one of you have a guitar, you can invite an additional family, as long as they bring a tambourine.
In Wales, rules are stricter, and you aren't allowed any tambourines.

Meanwhile, in Holland..

Stay safe.

PHP8

A new "big release" of PHP has arrived.
PHP8 brings all the updates you'd expect, like more of its patented confusingly irregular function names, and the ability to squish readable code into mangled single-line smooshes.

Going the way of the Dodo, if the Dodo had been gobbled up by EA and then spat out into a flaming volcano.
