If your like me and have people who like to write stuff in MS Office first and then post it to the web you get the silly quotes and such that word uses. The quotes and such are not valid UFT-8 and that’s how I like to store my data in my database so it usually dumps out with an error.
I’ve come up with the following Zend_Filer_Interface so that way you can plug it into anything that has the ability to use Zend_Filter.

As I’m sure everyone is almost aware by now Zend Framework 1.8 has been released. This is an extra special release for me as I spend two good weeks back in March writing the Ec2 Component after being pinged by Zend to do it.
It was fun writing it and learning more that I ever wanted to know about the Ec2 API’s but all it all it was a great expierice and I’m glad that I got the chance to do it.
Other notable items in the 1.8 release are:
- and so much more
So about two weeks ago Wil Sinclair from Zend pinged me about creating an Zend Framework API interface for Amazon Ec2. I was coming off of playing around with Ec2 for work and figured I would give it a shot. With the proposal filed I began the task of coding it out. After two weeks of writing code I had a working interface for the Query API from Amazon.
I do have to say I learned a lot while doing the inital work and I’m happy that Wil pinged me to do it. If you want to check out the code currently it lives on github but it is on track to make the 1.8 release of Zend Framework.
Please leave a commet here or on the proposal for anything that I may have over looked or if you have any ideas on how I could make it better.Read More
While working on a new project where my base was Zend Framework I desided to give the default layout for new ZF projects in Zend Studio for Eclipse a chance. While it does start a good layout for a project by generating the default code which is a real time saver I did notice some problems.Read More
Like Rob Allen, I don’t really understand these tagged memes either, however, but I’m always game for something new.
Seven things you may not know about me:
- I’ve been doing HTML and web programming since late 1995 when I started using Hot Dog HTML Editor from Sausage Software
- I’ve been using some form of linux since mid 1998 after hearing about it on a show called The Screen Savers.
- My friends and I played Dr. Mario on the NES so much one day that it melted the console with the game still in.
- TV is my second love after programming and computers. I currently have two DVRs that record up to 15 hours a week of TV.
- I am an avid fan of music and I’m always listening to it.
- I enjoy watching IndyCar Series races as it’s some of the best racing out now.
- When I drink beer, I prefer to drink beer that is a micro brew.
I then get to pass on the baton to:
- Chrisian (Spooons) Flickinger: Who supplied the FAILS! stickets at ZendCon ’08
- Ralph Schindler: With out Ralph’s help I would not be patching Zend Framework as often.
- Ed Finkler: Who makes the best Twitter Air Client around SPAZ.
- Brandon Savage: Member of the PHP Community
- Ben Ramsey: Organizer of the PHP|Atlanta and PHP Community Member
- Wil Sinclair: Project leader for Zend Framework
