Permanently disable driver signature enforcement in Windows 8.1
For some unsigned driver, you must disable driver signature enforcement to make it work. In Windows 8.1, this operation requires a reboot. And the settings is not permanent. It will backed to default enabled after turning on again or restart normally.

Through search, I found the program Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider from the post Permanently disable driver signature enforcement on Win 8.1 x64. It could disable driver signature enforcement permanently.

Although there is no Win 8.1 in its Supported OS list, it could work. Just follow its built-in instructions:

So how do I use it?
First and foremost; you are using this software at your own risk, we do not
take responsibility for any damages to your system, but we do not believe it
can harm anyone anyway. Secondly, User Account Control (UAC) must be
disabled in-order to use this tool as well.

1. Go ahead download and launch the application from the link below. Inside
its main menu, press on the "Enable Test Mode" button and follow the
instructions on the screen. This will enable TESTSIGNING mode, which
allows unverified system files to be loaded.

2. Now all you have to do is to add the unverified signature to the required
system files. To do so press on the "Sign a System File" button from the main
menu, and enter specific filename including full path. For example: if
ATITool64.sys from C:\Windows\System32\drivers refuses to load due to
driver signature enforcement, you should type: "C:\Windows
\System32\drivers\ATITool64.sys", and if you would like to sign more than a
single file, just repeat this procedure until you’re done, and finally reboot.

After you enabled Test Mode and added signatures to the required system
files, they should bypass Windows’s driver signature enforcement and load
without any issues. However, if for some reason you are interested to revert
it, you can re-launch the application, choose "Disable Test Mode" from the
main menu, and reboot. If you encounter issues or having questions, feel free
to post it on our forums.

FileSystemFinder: A PHP library that can list files and directories hierarchically using wildcard and regex patterns
Actually, this PHP library was created in the National Day holiday last year. But at that time, it was not as complete as it is now.

Today I cleaned up the code, made a few improvements, and commited it to github:

The example is as follows:
  1. <?php
  2. include_once 'FileSystemFinder.php';
  4. // List files using static method FileSystemFinder::find()
  6. $filelist = FileSystemFinder::find('C:/php/ext/php_pdo_*.dll');
  8. print_r($filelist);                 // via __debugInfo()
  9. echo "\r\n";
  12. // List files using file() method with a wildcard pattern
  14. $filelist = (new FileSystemFinder('C:/php/ext'))
  15.     ->file('php_pdo_*.dll');
  17. print_r($filelist->toArray());      // using toArray()
  18. echo "\r\n";
  21. // List files using dir() and file() method with wildcard and regex patterns
  23. $filelist = (new FileSystemFinder('C:/php'))
  24.     ->dir('dev|ext')                                    // using default wildcard matcher
  25.     ->file('/[0-9]/', FileSystemFinder::REGEX_MATCHER); // using the specified regex matcher
  27. foreach ($filelist as $path) {      // via SeekableIterator interface
  28.     echo "$path\r\n";
  29. }
  30. echo "\r\n";
  33. // A combination of using both static and non-static method
  35. $filelist = FileSystemFinder::find('C:/php/dev|ext', FileSystemFinder::DIR_ONLY);
  36. print_r($filelist);
  38. $filelist = $filelist->file('/[0-9]/', FileSystemFinder::REGEX_MATCHER);
  39. print_r($filelist);
  41. echo "\r\n";
  44. // List files using wfio extension
  46. if (extension_loaded('wfio')) {
  47.     $filelist = FileSystemFinder::find('wfio://E:/Music/* 笑话/* 欢乐剧场/??? *大*.wma');
  49.     for ($i = 0; $i < count($filelist); $i++) {     // via Countable interface
  50.         echo "[$i] => $filelist[$i]\r\n";           // via ArrayAccess interface
  51.     }
  52. } else {
  53.     echo "The wfio extension is not loaded.\r\n";
  54. }
  56. ?>

This will output:

Notepad++ with enhanced PHP syntax highlighting
During the National Day holiday, I searched for a alternative text editor and intend to use Notepad++. But when I start using it, I found its syntax highlighting feature is a bit weak.

From this article, I knew that the Scintilla editor component using by Notepad++ uses hard-coded method to deal with syntax highlighting. To add a new type of highlighting keywords, you need to modify the C++ source code. As for the problem that keywords and function names are mixed together for PHP, it has been there for 9 years.

I could have put it away and looking for commercial softwares. But I felt the well-known Sublime Text is not good as well after trying it out. So I came back to consider modifying the source code of Notepad++. Through the modification on Oct 5, I had figured it out and commited it to the repository I forked on github:

Today, I merged the code of v6.8.6 to my enhanced branch

This is the PHP syntax highlighting result in original edition:

And below is my enhanced version:

Now, in the Style Configurator, you can specify the PHP keywords (WORD) and function names (FUNCTION) to different colors:
