I’ve been writing things in PHP for the past 8 weeks that it isn’t really meant for or to do. To whit: 
  • daemonised processes;
  • shared memory based methods and usage (mainly around SysV semaphores and segments);
  • cron extensions and handlers;
  • network connections via SNMP and SNPP; and
  • lots of file system methods (globbing, file management and organisation),
I really do feel dirty.


Hello. I’m Sasha Ger­rand, a soft­ware developer. I design and cre­ate high volume trans­ac­tional tech­no­logy (along with other things). I write code in Open Source pro­gram­ming lan­guages. I do things with data sources and trans­ac­tional sys­tems. I use vir­tu­al­ised machines for my server envir­on­ments. I spend a fair pro­por­tion of my days liv­ing in the shell. I like POSIX com­pli­ant oper­at­ing sys­tems and FOSS products.
