Will be blogging a bit around the different words on the t-shirt, some fascinating ones and some I don’t understand as yet so should give me the opportunity to learn some new handy words. Always be progressing :)



php ides

After years of playing around with Zend Studio, finally moved to netbeans as my main php editor. Seems to do nearly everything Zend does and more. My only issue with it is not really being able to edit files on sftp on the fly. That said it currently has better support compared to Zend for public key logins and currently for me at the moment this is the most important at least for this project.

Time management

Moving my time management to include principles from Stephen Coveys’ book 7 habits.

A version of his weekly planner is available from:

It has an interesting section called “Sharpen the saw,” the saw is you basically.

It breaks these down into 4 sections:

Physical: Beneficial eating, exercising, and resting
Social/Emotional: Making social and meaningful connections with others
Mental: Learning, reading, writing, and teaching
Spiritual: Spending time in nature, expanding spiritual self through meditation, music, art, prayer, or service

Seems sensible really, though handy to have the weekly reminders.

Also the other thing this technique does well is the roles part, be it as a family, work, a wish etc.
