The Football world cup

I am not big football fan, I am only a geek, but If you are big football fan and you are a Geek, there is something for you. If your boss doesn’t have TV subscription. If you don’t live in UK where Worldcup is broadcasted on Internet. Some Austrians Geeks have made telnet broadcast in ASCII.

ASCII broadcasted FootballIf you close your eyes a little you can normally see players and the ball. It’s quite amusing and I feel very geekish 😛

UPDATE: Austrians not Australians. Stupid me

Hebrew error

While I was programming logout part of school website in PHP I got strange error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ')', expecting T_PAAMAYIM_NEKUDOTAYIM in /xxx/logout.php on line 3

After some Googling I found even more interesting thing: I did a search and found it used as the keyword for a french PHP manual entry, apparently "PAAMAYIM_NEKUDOTAYIM" means "two colons" ( : : ) in Hebrew. Hmm

But the strangest thing of all is that I don't have any colons in my code:

setcookie("cookie","", time()-(COOKIETIME*60));
unset(USERNAME);//Here is line 3

So now it seems that It isn't enough to speak english if you want to program, you have to speak Hebrew too. With this strange errors who said that programming isn't fun? 🙂

And then patiently and after many tries I could make a screenshot too. What was that? Read the rest of this entry »
