Two thousand open source applications for the public sector 

,----[ Quote ]
| The European Union's Open Source Observatory 
| and Repository (OSOR.eu) as of today is 
| offering public administrations access to more 
| than two thousand free and open source 
| applications.
| The OSOR is a platform where public 
| administrations can exchange information and 
| experiences and collaborate in developing free 
| and open source software. The platform has 
| managed to bring together more than 2000 such 
| open source software applications in just 
| sixteen months after its launch.

Codesion Emerges from CVS

| More modern systems like SVN (subversion), 
| Mercurial, Bzr (Bazaar) and Git offer 
| developers newer opportunities to 
| collaboratively develop software at scale. One 
| of the companies caught in the middle of the 
| evolution of version control is hosting vendor 
| CVSdude, with more than 50,000 users.


some thoughts on php and oop 

,----[ Quote ]
| It's stuff like that that makes me wish I knew 
| more about OOP.  I am studying it on and off, 
| but there's still some concepts that I just 
| can't wrap my brain around at times, like 
| exceptions.  In my procedurally-attuned 
| programming frame of mind, every time someone 
| explains them to me, I think ... "Well, if 
| something *breaks* why don't you just work 
| with the return codes and work around that?"  
| So, yah.  Some stuff is still lost on me.  I'm 
| trying to figure it out though.  Maybe it's 
| one of those things that doesn't make sense so 
| much when you apply it to PHP and it's general 
| usage of websites.  A lot of the stuff I read 
| about, I think how it would make much more 
| sense if it were an actual application 
| running.
