Grokking Drupal : e-Commerce

UML class diagram thumbnail for Drupal e-Commerce 4.6 For anyone trying to understand the inner working of the Drupal e-Commerce 4.6.* module, a pair of UML data model diagrams should be really helpful.

Concepts in Mambo CMS / Joomla

Mambo CMS (Mamboserver, Joomla) is an important Open Source CMS these days, and it is built on a complex data model. So I tried to abstract the main entities and model them in the form of an abused UML class diagram. Have a look.

Popping the rasgueado

Rasgueado is the well-known technique of flamenco guitar players. Because it sounds strong and can be impressive, one cannot but be tempted to try it on the bass.

However, the sound will typically lack the precision required for a non-solo bass part, especially if included in a slapping or tapping part accompaniment. But there is a trick...

Beauty and grace

Sometimes musicians do create themselves from art. Here is my account of one of these brief privileged moments with a oboe-toting lady.

On the value of old effect pedals

Not as good as vintage stringed instruments, but still...

What ? Me ? A stage photo ?

New site for the band - concerts

After some months of procrastination, I've finally done a small site for the band I'm currently playing with, called Moma Poka.

Not that much content yet ; proper photos and recordings have to be done, but the team that shot the Bondoufle concert is now busy with Rolland-Garros, and I suppose it's probably more useful to them than remixing / remounting our show.

You can still have a look at Moma Poka's site, though.

Microsoft talks to Paradox developers

Summary of a talk given by a Frank Fischer, MS .NET evangelist, Microsoft Germany, to the audience at the International Paradox Convention held in Frankfurt in 2004. .NET, of course, but also the ugly truth about Access and Visual Foxpro (VFP). Convention photo.

Loading a GtkCTree from a XML file using PHP-GTK 1

This is a small code example I've done for Riff News to demonstrate how to load data into a PHP-GTK GtkCTree from an external XML file:

http://www.riff.org/charger_un_gtkctree_depuis_xml_en_php-gtk

The (short) intro text is in french, but you can very well skip it to go directly to the code.

The example may also be useful in that the data being loaded into the tree represent the PHP-GTK 1 GTK class hierarchy (GDK not included).
