If you are a disciplined developer you probably take a lot of time to read the manual and probably also use the examples provided by the vendor, right?  This is what I was doing in my attempt to get the LinkedIn PHP API working.  LinkedIn recommends using file_get_contents() with a stream context.  Looks good to me.  After you get your GETs...

500 errors are notoriously vague errors that can occur for a number of reasons.  Technically the 500 error is defined as an internal server error.  This does not tell you much but it does tell you that you NEED MORE INFORMATION.

I have a loader function that I call every time I need to update ajax-ed in content.  A funny thing was happening: the buttons kept growing bigger and bigger on each run of this function.  The culprit: additional span tags that were causing the CSS rules to be applied multiple times.  The fix: unwrap .
