I switched my global PHP version to 5.4 and then had problems with various software including WordPress, and Concrete connecting to my mysql database. I found that just going into database administration (after switching the PHP version to 5.4) and updating the mysql password (to the same as before) caused it to use the new hashing mechanism/library… and now the database connections work correctly.
I have started to use E.ggtimer.com, for one-off reminders for doing something in Xmins or similar. I wanted an easier way to quickly get a timer for an undetermined amount of time, so I whipped up this bookmarklet: E.gg Timer. Now, with just a click on this bookmarklet, I am prompted for the time, and it then opens a new window with the E.ggtimer started.
