I have recently been looking at various social lending websites. The idea is that individual lenders lend money to individual borrowers via the social lending website, rather than via the banks. The result is that the lender receive a higher rate of return while the borrower pays a lower rate of interest.
Have just spent the last couple of days trying to process a spreadsheet file created in openoffice using perl. The problem I had was deciding which CPAN module to use. A choice of one which did everything I wanted would have been ideal. Unfortunately I had the overwhelming choice of hundreds.
I finally settled for ODF::lpOD
Thanks to the following pages that pointed me in the right direction:
Busy updating websites so they work in PHP 5.3
a somewhat boring task:
change each MySQL login password so it is stored in the new format
and update any depreciated code:
replace split with preg_split
replace ereg with preg_match
and wait for them to come to term!
Or postpone the problem till PHP 6 by ignoring all depreciated warnings:
error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_DEPRECATED);
and do the job properly later…
According to the census form – if you are a student and have any part time or casual employment you will not be classified as a student but instead as a part time or casual employee with a very low salary.
I am still trying to work out if this is ‘conspiracy’ or ‘cock-up’?
Just finished filling in my census form, spent hours trying to work out the correct answer to enter into the box labeled “This Question left Blank Intentionally”.
YES – but then the box is not blank intentionally or otherwise.
NO – as the box is not blank.
TRUE – would reflect on the intention of the form designer,
UNTRUE – as the box is not blank but the intention was TRUE
FALSE – correct as far as the blankness of the box is concerned
DONT KNOW – can’t figure out what the question means, let alone the intention of the questioner.
PASS – maybe the best answer – this is the one I settled on.
any other possible answers interpretations – please comment below…
