Zend Loader Not Available For PHP 5.5

Ubuntu Cola and a roll

Yesterday I finally got round to upgrading one of my servers to the latest Ubuntu LTS – 14.04 Trusty Tahr.

Most recently their rather “nutty” handling of phone calls has really peeved me. You can read more about this here. Short version […]

It’s been raining and drizzling for the last couple of days, which is rather annoying, as it’s a long weekend. I’m heading off to Los Angeles towards the end of […]

Pizza In London

Tasty Italian pizza in Princi, London

When you’re travelling you tend to end up eating a mish-mash of good, mediocre, excellent and terrible food. You never know where you’re going to end up eating and sometimes you can be pleasantly surprised. On a recent trip to London I was brought to Princi for dinner. It’s, to borrow an Americanism, awesome. The […]

If you’re a coffee drinker you know the difference between a good coffee and a bad one. But what makes the difference? Is it something big or something quite small and insignificant?

Singapore Hotel View
