Evert Pot:
PHP 5.5.10 timezone handling changes
March 31, 2014 @ 12:29:27

Evert Pot has a new post sharing some of the changes in DateTime handling that he's updated in the latest release in the PHP 5.5.x series.

PHP 5.5.10 got released a few weeks ago, and among other things, it added some new functionality related to timezone handling. In short, [subtracting from UTC] now works. Normally this would not be recommended, as you really should specify timezones based on their geographical location. This information is not always available though, so it's a welcome new feature.

Other changes include the removal of the automatic translation from "UTC" to "GMT" as well as errors being thrown when one of the "odd" timezones are used (he provides the list). Additionally, an update around timezone "guessing" has been added and the fallback that was in place has been removed.

Jonnay's Blog:
REST and URI Names
April 27, 2006 @ 06:53:22

On his blog, Jannay briefly shares some of REST and PHP after reading an older post on the SitePoint PHP blog.

I've been reading this blog over at sitepoint about Who Gets Rest by PHP heavy Harry Fuecks. It is a fairly link-heavy top level view of what REST is.

Its nice to see more the PHP guys get into REST, as far as PHP guys go, Harry is pretty Heavy. What harry has to say about URI naming schemes (especially in the comment section) really helped to gel a very important part of REST for me.

He comments that Harry's ideas about seperation of "tools" from the resources they work with is a very appealing idea, and one that would allow much more flexibility in PHP applications.
