- PHP Session Permission Denied Errors with Sub-Domains and IE7 or IE8 — I encountered a strange problem with IE7 and IE8 where if I visited example.com first and then visited sub-domain.example.com, Apache would return Permission Denied errors errors when trying to access the PHP session files for sub-domain.example.com.

While using GMail as my primary email client would be nice, one of the things that has kept me from doing so is the annoying "On Behalf Of" that the GMail SMTP servers add to outgoing email.

GMail now offers the ability to specify an alternate SMTP server, however, which enables you to use GMail as your primary client without announcing it to the world.
