Upgraded PHP from 5.6 to 7.3

On my main server for GreenRobot apps, I recently upgraded PHP from 5.6 to 7.3. One thing that helped was the PHP Web and Toolkit for Coda. When there was an error I used “Tidy PHP” and the error was fixed.

Also, since I used ADODB it was pretty easy to switch to a new mysqli driver versus mysql. ADODB is available via PHP Composer.

2 External Displays on My Macbook Pro.

I am lucky enough to have 2 external displays so I bought an adapter for my Macbook Pro so I can connect both at the same time. I bought it on eBay:

Hope you have a good new year.

Magic orchid cloning stuff

Amazon recommended me “Keiki Power Pro Orchid Plant Cloning Paste” today. I like orchids.

I ran the site through fakespot.com and it got an A.

I bought it directly from the company instead of Amazon. I will let you know if it works.

 

Update 12/2/2018: It didn’t work for me.
