  1. Hi. Just letting anyone from the UK know that Stripe has finally came over, in private beta format so far. Pound sterling currently being accepted and euro acceptance coming soon. I'd recommend having a look if you can. While waiting for full release, it's a good time to look back at Larry's guide if you want to integrate this, starting from: http://www.larryullman.com/2012/10/10/introduction-to-stripe/
  2. Hi again. I just have a question on the second last pursue exercises for chapter 3 (page 118) about the maximum range for distance. I've created the form to optionally search by range with no problem but my SQL is coming up with errors. I added the WHERE distance<=X to the query as noted in page 107, however adding this comes up with SQL syntax errors. I think this SQL could be causing errors due to it using a WHERE on an alias, but I could be wrong. Any help on this would, as always, be greatly appreciated. Example SQL: SELECT name, CONCAT_WS('', address1, address2), city, state, stores.zip_code, phone, ROUND(return_distance(39.09, -94.58, latitude, longitude)) AS distance FROM stores WHERE distance<=1000 LEFT JOIN zips USING (zip_code) ORDER BY distance ASC LIMIT 3
  3. Yeah thanks. Don't know if I did it the most efficient way but I used an array to indicate completion with the task ID and checked for it using in_array(). Hopefully I won't run into too many more problems, but its good to know this resource is available if needs be.
  4. Hi Larry. I was wondering if you could help me with a persue point on the first chapter. I am having a bit of trouble on the 7th persue point from going to showing all the tasks by removing the WHERE clause to trying to indicate and specifically format uncompleted and completed tasks differently in the same function. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated, though I'm finding the new review and persue section very useful for reinforcing the chapter.
