PHP on Apache 2.2 (Win32)

This came as a shock to me a while back, when i started evaluating an upgrade to Apache 2.2 from Apache 2.0.58. It seems that PHP doesn’t ship with a handler for Apache 2.2, as such after a huge headache and little bit of searching I found this article and downloads available at

JavaScript (intro)

JavaScript is one of the foundations of the internet as we currently know it, but is often misunderstood. It is the “J” in AJAX (to be discussed elsewhere), and is typically used for creation of interactive browser applications with client-side (browser) functionalities such as FORM validation and manipulation of onscreen elements via the DOM (to be discussed elsewhere).

JavaScript is more appropriately called ECMAScript, as it is a ‘Standard’ from the ECMA organization. Early incarnations of this specification were called LiveScript (by Netscape). Microsoft, in typical form, created a VisualBASIC like version that they called JScript, though while mostly compatible, has some proprietary differences.

It’s always preferred to add this to your HEAD section (or the equivalent in HTTP Headers):

<meta http-equiv=”Content-Script-Type” content=”text/javascript” />

To include external files containing JavaScript:

<script type=”text/javascript” src=”/filename.js”></script>

To include XHTML compliant blocks of JavaScript in your page:

<script type=”text/javascript”>
<!– <![CDATA[

//]]> — >

DO NOT use the deprecated ‘language’ attribute:

<script language=”JavaScript”>


Prior works…

I started my Internet career while still in college and working at a small (<10 employees) marketing company (NEWMAX, which after I left became Explicit Marketing). Several of my early works are still available online, via their portfolio and/or via web archives such as The Internet Archive (aka Way Back Machine).

Here’s a sampling of some of the one’s I can remember. (
