This blog contains random posts about various issues I came across so far in IT. The purpose of this blog is to remind myself how I solved this or the other problem. I will post solutions I found useful so far, and I might post some code when I feel it could help someone.

Most posts will deal with systems I’m used to – that is Linux (mainly CentOS), PHP, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Javascript, Ajax, VisualForce, Filemaker Script, Objective C (or iOS apps related issues in general) etc.

Since I live in Japan, some of my posts will deal with Japanese character related issues, that is, multi-byte character support.

There’s no guarantee that code or information posted in this blog is fail-save, so be careful when you try things out – it might not work or, worse, it might harm your system.

Please understand that I won’t be able to offer much support.
