HowTo: Configure SVN+SSH with Subclipse on Windows
Use ssh tunnelling to access a Subversion repository using SSH tunneling (i.e. with a subversion repository url of svn+ssh://myservername/myrepo) using the Subclipse subversion integration with Eclipse. I tried various things and used each of the three interfaces for configuring Subclipse (Window, Preferences..., Team, SVN).

Most PHP developers have heard of the CURL extension for PHP or even used it. However it is mostly used in a basic form: to retrieve content from other websites or (RESTful) webservices. Ofcourse PHP itself offers several functions (like fopen or fsockopen) for getting this content, but they are all very basic. It is easy to run into limitations, for example you might want to define the request method or set another user agent (if you're building a webspider). This is where the curl extension kicks in. It is a separate library that has to be compiled with PHP in order to use it. The Curl extension has many functions and options which offer the developer more flexibility than the standard PHP functions.

Scaling Out MySQL

In a blog post about the acquisition, SUN CEO Jonathan Schwartz wrote that this is one of his objectives.
Programming is all about passion.
Yes, you can be a programmer and get your job done without actually loving your job. You can clock in 9 am and clock out 5 pm and collect your salary at the end of the month, day in and day out but you don't enjoy the job at all. You can even climb up the management ladder and collect a far fatter paycheck after you grow tired of the technical things. Oh no, moving up the management ladder is the way to go (besides switching track, of course) if you don't love programming.

Learning jQuery: A Roundup Roundup
I’ve been really getting into this jQuery phenomenon lately. jQuery is tightly tied to CSS, so if you are already comfortable with CSS and are looking for ways to expand your possibilities, jQuery is the place to be. You can achieve so many cool effects with it, and there are so many good learning resources out there for it I think it makes sense for serious web designers to start getting their hands dirty with this.
