mac port selfupdate error

Error: org.macports.checksum for port php5 returned: Unable to verify file checksums

Some mis behaving server is not hosting the package accordingly.
Took me some time to found the solution:
mac port clean --dist php5
mac port sync

mac port upgrade outdated

//keep trying the above until the server got kicked off from your list

Zend form element separator

yes, finally i did a separator due to some hiccup on fields being hanging on top of the previous field:


a better looking checkbox for zend form element checkbox


$this->getElement('iagree')->addDecorator('HtmlTag', array('tag' => 'dd', 'class' => 'checkbox'));
$this->getElement('iagree')->addDecorator('Label', array('placement' => 'APPEND', 'class' => 'checkbox', "escape" => false));
//escape to false to prevent from escaping link within the label
//also adding checkbox class to the dd tag and label tag
// and place label to the right of checkbox

Css wise:

dl dd.checkbox {
  margin-left: 175px;
  float: left;

dl label.checkbox {
  display: block;
  margin-left: 190px;
  width: auto;
  float: none;
  text-align: left;
  height: auto;

.zend_form label.checkbox.required {
  padding-left: 12px;
  background-position: left center;
