The underscore affair - No cookies for IE!
Let me tell you yet another story about IE as the perfect weekend companion: I was deploying a web application to a customer's test environment for some finishing touches. I soon noticed that I could not login with IE, while everything worked fine with the "normal guys" (FF, Opera, Chrome, Safari...). Some frustrating hours of curl/telnet/tcpdump, crawling forums and reading blogs followed, but the only thing I could say is that IE was constantly ignoring the session cookie.
Geocoding with php
Recently one of our customers asked us to pimp his project database. This database is a pool of european wide projects in non-formal learning and youth work. The customer wanted the projects to be shown on a map of europe to emphasize their extensiveness. Unless we wanted somebody to put each of the over 500 projects on the map manually, we had to find a way to use a geocoder, because we had nothing more than a description text including address information like "Athens, Greece".

Clustering Algorithms for Tag Clouds
Today I will talk about how to create tag clouds that display different levels of importance. At this I try to outline different approaches on how to cluster the tags by their importance significantly. I like to come up with a definition of what I am talking about first.
