Growing Up

Why is it that when I see ‘adults’ get toys or do grown up things it cool but nothing I would do. But then when I see one of my friends my own age do something adult I’m like wtf. Case in point, one of my friends just got a motor cycle, tho I do have to say I’m the only one that’s married.

304 Not Modified Header and PHP

This is a nice little snipet that I use when serving dynamic images so the client will cache them properly. It uses a 304 Not Modified header to tell the client to notĀ re-downloadĀ the file. This mostly saves on TCP overhead however a connection must still be made to the server. Iā€™m sure that somewhere out there is a header to make it so the client wonā€™t even send the request in the first place see edit.

$info = $result->fetch_assoc();
 
// They have the current version
if (strtotime($_SERVER['HTTP_IF_MODIFIED_SINCE']) == strtotime($info['updated'])) {
    header('Last-Modified: '.gmdate("D, d M Y H:i:s", strtotime($info['updated'])) . " GMT", true, 304);
    exit();
 
// Sent them the file
} else {
 
    // Headers
    header("Content-type: image/jpeg");
    header("Last-Modified: " . gmdate("D, d M Y H:i:s", strtotime($info['updated'])) . " GMT");
    header("Expires: " . gmdate("D, d M Y H:i:s", strtotime(time() + 3600) . " GMT"); # 1h
    header("Cache-Control: public, maxage=3600"); # 1h
    header("Content-Length: ".strlen($info['image'])); 
 
    echo $info['image'];
    exit();
}

The only issue with this code is 99% of the server side work is alredy done. If it isnā€™t a mission critical image you can do this at the top of the fileĀ instead to save a lot of back end time.

if (isset($_SERVER['HTTP_IF_MODIFIED_SINCE'])) {
    header('Last-Modified: '.gmdate("D, d M Y H:i:s", strtotime($_SERVER['HTTP_IF_MODIFIED_SINCE'])) . " GMT", true, 304);
    exit();
}

Edit: Changing Cache-Control to public will make the browser just send a hello packet and not wait for a reply before showing the photo.


Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an…

Bioshock 2

Just finished Bioshock 2 and loved it… a little shorter then 1 but not by much. Still has just as many twists and turns along they way but I don’t think anything can top the firsts at 50%. The moral choice seams mostly irrelevant but I need to do some more research on it. Also the addition of achievements on Windows kind of gave it away that I was almost at the end of the game.
