Reverse postal code lookup in PHP

 I've never played with any geolocation tools before but I thought I'd take a whack at it. After stumbling across GeoHelper, I thought I'd test things out with it. Well, after finding that the only reverse postal code lookup is Canada Post, I might as well make my own.

Download GeoHelper and script at the bottom of the page and place it in the same directory. That's pretty much it, the code explains itself. It can also do a reverse lookup on IPs.

WorkSimple nearing major release soon

 WorkSimple will be nearing a major release soon, with 1.3.0 (making the old version 1.3.0 a fork (which has yet to be completed)). Some of the new features/stuff include:

  • Completely new module system, making it easier to add/create new modules.
  • HTML code cleaned up
  • Blogging system codebase re-coded
  • Installation process streamlined

 and numerous other stuff and bugs fixed.

 Version 1.3.0 shall be released soon, by that I mean with in the next couple days. Going from 1.2.3 to 1.3.0 is quite the step, so I'll have to make this upgrade worth it ;)

On the subject of making blogs, I just thought about a remotely hosted WorkSimple install. This would be similar to, where users can sign up for a free blog, etc. Interesting idea...

'or 1=1

Jeez, almost been a week since my last blog post. Recently, I've been working on Sysode more and more. Numerous bugs have been fixed, yet there are more and more features everytime I work on it. It's open for registration, but more than likely your account will be deleted if you end up signing up.
I'm open for any feedback on it :D

I was planning on finding a job this summer, but well, I haven't gotten around to it yet. Staples seems interesting, but meh. Retail doesn't interest me at all. I could always freelance though, little scripting and remote adminstration on the side to bring in some green.


I installed Synergy on my workstation and my two other laptops (which are on either side of my tri-monitor workstation). All I can say is amazing. So much more convenient and productive.

'Bout 05:00 here, I'll wrap up working on Sysode then hit the ol' dusty trail ;)


Sysode is a simplified file backup system for developers. Really, none of the code has been put together as I'm still 'brainstorming'. It's mainly targeted at single developers or small teams, for backup and archival purposes. (Free of course)
"Hey, did you get version YZ from X?"


"Login to our Sysode account and get it!"

Not sure how [specifically] it's going to work. Setting up a good API so [other] developers can write stuff for it is a must.


Any comments on this idea, or other stuff is appreciated :)


Ticketto - semi finished

I coded Ticketto in around 5 hours. You can check it out here: and try logging in with 'test' and 'test' respectivly. Also, check out the admin panel: using 'admin' and 'admin' for the username/password.


For those that don't want to check it out, Ticketto is a simple support ticket system. Users/client signs up, picks department and creates a ticket. Admin signs in, answers ticket and set status of ticket to closed, answered, etc. More features are planned ;)
Anyway, if anyone wants the source, just leave a comment.

PHP Support Ticket System

Ticketto (rhymes with Geppetto) is new project I started today; it's based on mail (MailX) so the foundation is already there. A client can create a support ticket in different departments and view the response from staff/admin/whatever. Admins can have seperate departments, so three admins three departments.

The client will also have their own area for other stuff (I'm working on it.)

Anyway, it's Sunday so I'll be watching some TV (if the satelite isn't out still).



I'm not into social networking or that kind of stuff, but I decided to join Twitter instead. I installed two apps for my iPod for Twitter and I guess I exceed 100 requests an hour.
...So I decided to make my own microblogging site. Sounds like another useless script....but oh well, something to pass the time. Sounds like a good idea? Leave a comment and let me know.


It seems I get quite a number of hits from this blog entry. Below, I've included the microblogging script I made. 

Download here:

To install/use this script, create a directory called 'db' in your doc root and move 'team.csv' in there, also put 'ptb_ini.php' and 'pjjtextbase.php' in your doc root. And that's it. The script is quite infinished and exhibits horrible coding. Use at your own risk ;)
