- Enabling PHP in Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger
Sat down to do some work in PHP on my two week old Tiger install and was suprised to see that Apple still leaves PHP disabled by default in Tiger.

Thanks Dori for letting us know that the list has been updated and can be found here. While you are there, if you are interested in learning more about developing your own widgets, Dori has recently published the Dashboard Widgets for Mac OS X Tiger : Visual QuickStart Guide which is currently listed at Amazon for $14.95 with free shipping eligibility.
I've been enjoying Dori's blog (Backup Brain) for quite a while. She's an Mom, author (duh!), programmer and a speaker who isn't afraid to call it as she sees it. She's definitely got a permanent spot in my NetNewsWire.
...and as many suspected, it didn't take long for someone to write a malicious widget that can actually cause harm to your system. PC users are foaming at the mouth - "See!! See!! The Mac is just as bad as Windows!" - not quite sparky! I give it until the end of the week before Apple closes this hole.
