  • And the award goes to…

    The other day I mentioned php. Someone asked me what it stood for. I honestly didn’t know. ‘I just code or I just hack it’ wasn’t my best response! php (or PHP) stands for hypertext preprocessor.

    Free Mondays! I’ve enjoyed the last 17+ weeks greatly and picked up fantastic freebies for web design, background images for my slides, simply great ideas just by viewing.

    I don’t own a motorbike: http://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?t=1216528 – so getting data via a OBD2 Data Recorder isn’t interesting to me.
