As you may have noticed I’ve neglected this site in recent weeks as I’ve been incredibly busy. One of the projects I’ve been working on is a new eCard system for the World Land Trust and I’m pleased to say that it’s finally gone live.
It had a soft launch last week but is now up and running, just in time for Christmas.
Please show your support for the wonderful work that the World Land Trust do by sending an eCard and donating whatever you can. There is a wealth of information on why you should support the World Land Trust on their site, so please take the time to have a look.
If you’ve been following me on Twitter, you may have noticed me mention that I was working on a chat feature for a website run by the World Land Trust. This project has been ongoing for a while and has only recently gone live.

Over the weekend I was writing some PHP code and got into all sorts of bother with trying to compare two dates, one from PHP and the other from a database stored field in MySql. What I wanted to do was this: retrieve each record from the database, and check if a certain DateTime field was greater than 20 minutes ago. A standard and easy thing to be trying to do you would think. Not for me it wasn’t.

I’m currently working on a chat feature for the Wildlife Focus site, which is run by the World Land Trust. Since this is a charitable organisation doing great work, naturally I am doing this for free.
The initial requirement is to allow registered users to be able to post comments on the webcams that are being displayed, allowing them to discuss what they see etc. In the future it will be integrated with PHPmotion, which the site uses to show user uploaded videos, allowing live discussions.
I’ve only started it, but have got quite far already. It’s being built with PHP, AJAX, MySql and of course HTML and CSS. I’ll keep you updated on how it’s going.
