At ZOKO, our jewelry is handmade using natural stones, freshwater pearls, glass, metals, including sterling silver and gold, and other ‘interesting’ finds. When designing, Sue Ballard takes her ideas from many places – seasons and their colors, the beach, amazing people and things that she has seen on her travels, the color of a stone or pearl that is just too hard to pass up because of its beauty. Our designs are always being added to, often incorporating different materials from places around the world. So please check back often to see What’s New! Enjoy!

What is the Zend Optimizer?

The Zend Optimizer is one of the most popular PHP plugins for performance-improvement, and has been available without charge, since the early days of PHP 4. It improves performance by scanning PHP's intermediate code and passing it through multiple Optimization Passes to replace inefficient code patterns with more efficient code blocks. The replaced code blocks perform exactly the same operations as the original code, only faster.

In addition to improving performance, the Zend Optimizer also enables PHP to transparently load files encoded by the Zend Guard.

The Zend Optimizer is a free product available for download from Zend Technologies. Zend Technologies also developed the PHP scripting engine, known as the Zend Engine.
