Since my last post I’ve started a big lifestyle change by eating healthier and exercising frequently. In addition to that I’ve stopped drinking coffee. Giving up coffee wasn’t too bad. I went from having 3+ cups a day to 0. I only had maybe 2 hours of headaches the day I went cold turkey and that was it. As a result I’m waking up in the morning much earlier and feeling a lot more refreshed. I used to wake as a zombie just waiting for the first cup of Joe. I feel like these changes have had a nice effect on my productivity. The cleaner the fuel the better the performance.
I’ve also started working with Codeigniter recently. I have to say that so far I’m really loving it. I was looking for a PHP MVC framework to learn and I decided to go with Codeigniter over CakePHP just because I’ve heard a lot of good things about it and I think I’d prefer a framework that didn’t’ require me to use the command line. I’m comfortable with the command line, but needing to use it for PHP development just sounds like fail. I’ve had people tell me that Codeigniter isn’t true MVC, but whatever. Just like anything else there are fan boys and haters.
I have kind of a fun site / project I’m developing with Codeigniter that I’ll announce with the time comes.
