With an introduction of a new Firefox extension in PHP, Terry Chay comments in his blog about the nitty-gritty that he had experienced working on it. He first explains the purpose that this extension allows PHP scripts to send debugging or profiling information to Firefox’s Firebug without having to write the page itself. He says the standard way of debugging in PHP involves echoing code to the screen. The fact that PHP is a scripting language makes this an way of debugging on the Web. But this may lead to some breaks in your site. This is especially relevant when you are debugging a well formed XML or JSON response, he says.

IDG's East Coast Linux gathering is now officially called the LinuxWorld OpenSolutions Summit (LWOSS) and the inaugural 2007 version was held February 14 and 15 in the conference area of the Marriott Marquis hotel in Manhattan, not in a huge convention center. Despite the longer name, it was such a cute little conference that I kept wanting to pat it on its head. But sometimes smaller is better, and in many ways this 600-person LWOSS was more fun and more informative then its larger Boston and New York predecessors.
