This is a little off-topic, but how does someone copy someone else’s Wordpress site? Sure, you can copy all of the source code, but that still leaves all of the PHP code missing which Wordpress needs for its themes. Rewriting this code is too much work (especially for an offender), so either the offender is using a non-Wordpress copy, or your friend has a security leak somewhere which made it possible for the offender to copy the source files which is pretty serious.

Hi,

You should check if Google has an API for that. If they don’t, you’ll have to find a different source as scraping it from their site is unreliable and (technically) illegal. With the data from the API you could use my iCal & XML calendar and modify it a little.

Best regards, Rik

Have a look at this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/143122/using-simplexml-to-create-an-xml-object-from-scratch

Also, I’d use file_put_contents(‘myXML.xml’, $xml->content0->asXML()) instead

Yeah the new icons really look awful ;) But keep in mind that iOS7 is currently in beta, so they’ll probably take another look at those icons and the overall design. Don’t know to what extend, but reading everyone’s reactions I’m assuming, and hoping, they’ll take it back to the drawing board.

As for the new Mac Pro, I kinda like it! :) And why are people prejudging the Mac Pro about the fact that the design looks like a recycle bin..? (@FinalDestiny, some pics do look delicious though :) ) They’re mainly using this design because of the air flow or something and that it requires only 1 fan to cool the whole tower. You’ll probably pay a few pennies for this machine, but it’s going to be really powerful, so who really cares that it looks a little strange.

How are you guys doing? I qualified by solving A, B, C-small and C-med, but am stuck on C-large and D at the moment :P

Very nice! I’ve done A, B and C-small as well, but my computer couldn’t handle C-med. I’ve thought of a much faster way now, but it’s too late. Don’t think C-large will be working though.

And am I the only one who thinks that D is impossible, haha ;) btw, what languages are you guys using? I’m using PHP.

You can barely trust the default money, that need to have physical support in the back. How can you trust money that jump in value only because “Now they are cool and awesome!”? What happens when they will not be awesome and cool?

At the moment people do not trust banks, so they invest their money in resources that are reliable. Bitcoins are not tied to a bank (so it can’t go bankrupt), which makes it reliable, just like gold. There is also no inflation in Bitcoins, because the system is built in a way that there can only be around 21 million bitcoins.
