Dance! Dance, Miss Piggy, dance!
I saw this video of a cat on a treadmill and I immediately thought that this would be perfect for our cat Tula (aka Miss Piggy, and not only because of her weight). Place her food dish at one end, and force her to exercise as she's eating.
Why does this not surprise me about PHP?
I'm not sure if it's a PHP 5x thing, or if the PHP configuration was a bit more strict, but when I tested “Project: Leaflet” on another server with PHP 5 (the development server is currently at PHP 4) I received a series of errors:
Notice: Undefined index: order in XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.php on line 382
I did some searching, and I found two fixes. One, the following line:
error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE);
Or I can fix each instance, from:
if (isset($_POST['blah'] == 'foo') ...
if (isset($_POST['blah']) && ($_POST['blah'] == 'foo')) ...
And I'm not sure how I feel about this. On the one hand, it's keeping muddleheaded programmers honest, forcing them to actually think for a change. On the other hand, it sure is annoying having to check almost all variable references to see if the variable is defined or not …
