After a couple of hours of work, JBlogs is finally written in an object-oriented manner. To use JBlogs is far easier than before thanks to this.

Getting started requires a simple few edits to data.php file and then putting this code on your website:

PHP
$jblogs = new jblogs();
$meta_data = $jblogs->getMetaData();
$jblogs->generatePosts();

Since I first learned to program in early 2005 I have always been an object-oriented programmer. PHP became an exception in 2012 to this rule but I have since begun to move some of my own work to an object-oriented PHP. This change does mean you must be using PHP 5 or later by the way!

Mac OS X has featured a dashboard for a long time. It was introduced in Mac OS X 'Tiger' (version 10.4) and since Mac OS X Lion (10.7) it has received barely any attention from the developers.

OS X Dashboard

Dashboard still has yet to change

But now since Lion it has had absolutely no updates. It still looks like something from pre-Yosemite with it's skeuomorphic icons and it just doesn't fit into OS X. I love the dashboard in OS X, but it looks close to it's end.
