Atom, a new text editor in town

The people of Github have started a great new project “Atom”. Atom is a text editor, which they claim is “A hackable text editor for the 21st Century”. Looking at the screenshots, it looks very promising, only I haven’t had the chance to play with it. At this time they only provide builds for Mac OS X, but you can make your own build for Windows and Linux too.

Case sensitive find on CakePHP

This blogpost is not about how you can adjust your find statements to make them case sensitive on CakePHP. Instead if you want your find to be case sensitive just make sure your database takes care of this by using the utf8-bin collation.

That’s right, only changing the collation makes sure your SELECT queries become case sensitive!
