I Missed An Episode!

Yes, I somehow failed to watch an episode of ER! I have it, I just haven't seen it yet. I was going to watch it tonight, but I got distracted by Kev and looking into PHP.

My grand plan for tomorrow was to look into a way of removing html tags from text submitted via a form, and eventually to support bbcode (tags with square brackets, as used in forum software), and eventually JavaScript buttons to add the tags to the text area. And eventually perhaps some kind of interface (Java?) so people can just type like in a word processor and it all ends up in bbcode. So how long would this take?

I hoped all day, but in half an hour I've discovered PHP has a built in function to remove HTML tags, and a function to replace text that is far too clever for its own good (it can store parts of the string into variables, making it incredibly easy to switch bbcode for HTML output). Ah well, that still leaves the JavaScript buttons (half an hour to implement?) and the Java applet (a lot longer, and I get to play with Java again sometime) but the applet will have to wait for now. Then I can add a preview page and some nice extras, to both this site and the BeerSoc site, and eventually build up a nice Content Management System (CMS) that I can use in the portfolio I'm starting.

Gizmo, one of the cats in our close, was cute as ever today, I've got a photo of him (stored on my phone) sat on the bonnet of my mum's car. I'm definitely a cat lover.
