What I’ve been up to lately

I’ve been busy this couple of weeks hence the lack of updates. I have been working mainly on my tool of choice — CakePHP. I mainly do my work on OS X for PHP. Recently I got involved in working for some software that requires Microsoft SQL Server, PHP and IIS. The whole shift towards the other side slowed me down a lot. I found myself being confused over the tiniest thing like where’s my host file. Where’s the php.ini? How to configure this and that. The terms are seemingly different and watching IIS crash again and again due to me incorrect configurations frustrates me.

On the brighter note, when I working in Windows I actually realized how much I missed Windows Explorer. It’s probably the single most useful utility I miss when I switch to a MacBook.
