Adjust GROUP_CONCAT() maximum length

I’m currently working on a redesign of a site of a good friend. He’s a professional photographer from Amsterdam and I built his first site in 2011. Back then, I build his site with nexCMS, my very own CMS, which was based on the Zend Framework. Throughout the years, my friend created almost 4000+ posts and uploaded 13.000+ images.

Hanne & Lore – Tonband für den Badestrand

Badestrand is the German word for bathing beach and although the official bathing beach season is over in Germany, there’s always a beach anywhere on the globe that is nice and warm and that can benefit from this fantastic set of Hanne & Lore. I’m sure, even my friends back in Germany enjoy this set despite the current whether conditions.

What does ATM stand for?

While driving through Jakarta, I passed a sign saying ATM. I used ATMs around the globe countless times, but I never asked myself what ATM actually stands for.

My first thought was “Automated Transaction Machine”. My second thought was, transactions are triggered my humans, thus, they’re not automated. Then, I thought that ATM might stand for “Atomic Transaction Machine”.

I decided to stop guessing around and look it up. And, to my surprise, the acronym ATM stands for “Automated Teller Machine”.

How giving helps receiving

A month ago the development of Twenty Twenty, the new default theme for WordPress 5.3, started. I was fortunate enough to see the development starting in the early days. As I’m very passionate about theme development, I contributed pretty much from the first day.
