So, I was cleaning up RevFramework's code, and this stupid line was throwing an error.
return (new $driver)->connect($data);
I thought it was pretty weird, so I went researching about it to find out that this was only possible with PHP 5.4+ which supported class member access on instantiation. Lucky me, I was running PHP 5.3 with MAMP.
I went looking through MAMP and there was no way to update, I had to download MAMP 2.1 in order to update to PHP 5.4. This was the moment I realized MAMP was not for me. I just hated how I had to download the whole thing again, just to get a new PHP version.
I started to think, and I remembered this cool-looking package manager I had seen a few months ago. It was called Homebrew.
Homebrew is a really simple, lightweight package manager for OS X. I had tried to use something similar, MacPorts, a while back but I had found it too much of a hassle.
Elon Musk, founder of PayPal, Tesla Motors and SpaceX, released his open-source design for a near-supersonic transport concept, which he calls Hyperloop.
The Hyperloop could be described as a cross between a Concorde, a rail gun and an air hockey table, it can go at 1126 km/hr and it could be built alongside freeways.
The concept is basically built around linking LA to SF [610km], where a trip would cost you around $20 and be 35 minutes long. Capsules could depart as often as every 30 seconds and could also carry cars.
I’ve been following Elon Musk for some time now, I think he’s just an amazing individual and I’ve been waiting for him to announce Hyperloop for some time now.
The whole deal is amazing, and I simply love how it’s actually an open-source design… No patents!
I invite you guys to read more on it here so you can have a better idea on how it actually works and how it would look [It has pics!]. I bet you’ll probably enjoy yourself ;)
Anyways, have a read and let me know what you guys think!
