Google Maps

Over the bank holiday weekend I wanted to take some time for learning about something away from the PHP language, I decided tolook more into maps.

I’m looking at maps as I have a thing for maps and I want to be able to achieve things like this which i have absolutly  no idea how to do.


Dave and I booked to stay at this resort earlier today, just thought I would drop that in there.

GIT Continued 3

Continuing with learning GIT, already seeing real potentional in this tool

Upgraded my GIT Hub account to organisation, with private repositories (well I convinced David too and add me as a member) as I can see how useful this is going to be when it comes to keeping up to date with inhouse CRM CMS.

Getting started with GIT

It’s been an interesting morning, in preperation to becoming a proud order of a Mac Book Pro I’ve been learning some of the thngs I’ve always put off and one of those things is GIT.

Now I know that using GIT is not dependent on working on a Mac but with so many turorials and course seeming to be focused around the OS it seems that that it’s one more barrier to getting started.

SQL Find & Replace

When finding and replacing multiple instances of text in a website use this:

update [table_name] set [field_name] = replace([field_name],'[string_to_find]','[string_to_replace]');

would look something like this in practice

update sm_usefulSites set webAddress = replace(field_name,'[kerryowston.co.uk]','[daveismyname.com]');

it updates the selected colum( field_name) in the selected table (table name) and tells it to replace whatever is specified in string_to_find with whatever is spedified in string_to_replace
