Maguma has integrated support for the eBay Acellerator Toolkit for PHP (PHP-AT) in their PHP IDE Maguma WorkbenchWritten by Maguma
(Bolzano/Italy) Maguma will publish at beginning of April 2005 a new module, PHP AT of eBay. This new module will be integrated in modular PHP IDE, Maguma Workbench. The Accelerator Tooolkit for PHP (PHP-AT) allows integration of data available on eBay via a set of custom PHP classes. The PHP-AT is written completely in PHP and only requires PHP version 4.3.x or higher compiled with cURL and OpenSSL modules. Future versions of eBay PHP-AT will also be supported with Maguma Workbench in this manner. With integration of eBay Acellerator for PHP in Maguma Workbench, productivity of creation of new webapplications integrating eBay can be increased.
Clean VacationingWritten by Lillian & Dave Brummet
Clean Vacationing (409 words)
Admit it. When sun is out and you are at your favorite campsite or cottage on lake last thing you want to do is spend a lot of time cooking a meal. Often, when vacationing, lure to purchase instant foods is strong. Unfortunately, these convenience foods often come over packaged usually including some type of plastic. As we can see when we come across trash in wilderness, plastics tend to linger longest - other than maybe glass and metal. Nothing ruins feel of a pristine, natural area more than a bunch of garbage. Numerous studies prove that tourists return to an area primarily for its cleanliness and greenery. In this era where economy has come to rely more on tourism, cleaning up is truly a benefit for community.
We soon realized that walking by these messes and complaining over such disrespect, we were behaving not much better than polluters who left it. Now when we hike we pack a supply of plastic bags (grocery bags work well) to clean up as we go. Often we earn up to $10 in returnable bottles and cans in process. When you take a bit of time to clean up some trash not only do you have a better trail or beach to come back to, you have helped to make it safer and nicer for next user. This simple measure just might influence others to keep it clean, as well.
