Welcome to Wednesday.

It's a grey, foggy start to the day but that's fine, that's good. Fog changes our view of the world and makes us really observe.

Patrick quoted Henry David Thoreau yesterday:

"It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see."

Fog helps us see even while it reduces visibility, it creates new shadows and half hides things from view. We take for granted those things around us when we see them every day; fog changes our perspective, makes us re-evaluate and re-appreciate.

What could be better than that?

@colinwalker @patrickrhone - So true, it’s all about our perspective. Sometimes we just need to see things in a different light.

My coding knowledge has always been just enough to achieve what I need to do. There are definitely better, more secure ways of doing things.

So I'm looking to dive deeper into PHP and would appreciate any recommendations for books etc. that will put some real flesh on the bones.

@colinwalker You're going to stick with PHP?

@hjertnes For now, I want to get better at it before moving on to something else. What other languages would you recommend?

I'm working with PHP sessions and have increased session.gc_maxlifetime on the server to 86400 seconds (1 day) but they are still getting killed quickly. The default is 1440 (24 minutes) which is too short for what I want to use them for.

I've read some discussions about how local account settings can be ignored in favour of the main server settings unless you specify a custom session.save_path so I'm giving that a try.
