It's fun when you post something to Advogato and get a response back from someone dealing with what you talked about. Thanks Chris! The story I posted wasn't word for word, but your numbers will come in handy in the future.
Anyways, another day another dollar.
I like the fact that PHP is so easy to extend. Yes, we can right an application in C, or we can write it in PHP and get to market 5 months faster, and then find the bottlenecks in the field, and port that to C and still be done faster. Okay, maybe not that easy, but hey.
