"just curious, but why would you not want to use curl or pear? why wouldn't you want to leverage existing classes that are doing the trick? I'm getting up to speed w/ this (php) myself and wonder about your curl/pear comment."

Net Neutrality: regulations looking for a problem that doesn't exist

Show your support for Act 221

The future of tax credits and Act 221 is uncertain and bleak. But that doesn't mean us TechHuians can't participate in an online poll and show our support.

How has the State's moves on ACT 221/ SB199 already affected your company?

A small group of folks were invited by the Governor's office to discuss the potential veto of SB199. I would be very interested in knowing if any tech companies have already been negatively or positively affected by the potential passing of this bill.

Or is there a positive story you would like to share?

I don't want a pro/con debate on SB199 here. I would… Continue
