PHP - misleading thoughts

Posted 03-07-2010 at 10:29 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

I've recently used to hear from many guys that PHP is bad and useless language. Well, generally the source of that point of thinking is a bad code written by newbies(or mature noobs).
Yes, I admit PHP has some basic functions missing, some features need to be improved, etc. It's far from ideal language. But it is very easy to learn. The problem here is many beginners starting from PHP without reading documentation properly, without looking for security in their apps, and, as a result we have...

"It's time to kick ass and chew bubblegum... and I'm all outta gum." - Duke Nukem (but I think he stole if from the bad ass in They Live)

Yeah Duke Nukem 3D on Linux... groovy!!

Get yourself a copy of DosBox. I yum'd it from the repo but a quick google and you will reap your reward. Install what you find and that's you got DOS on Linux.

Go over to www.gog.com and for $5.99 you can get Duke Nukem 3D... that's about £2.00 and it's DRM free.......

2. Unzip the package and then do the "./configure && make && sudo make install" shuffle.

Hi and thanks for reading my blog. Lets have an proper introduction.

I have been a Window user for over 10 years and got fed up having to constantly upgrade hardware and software to get the ALL SINGING ALL DANCING same old shite as before.

So around Christmas time 2010 I dual booted Vista and Fedora on a crappy laptop (with good RAM, everything else is crap). Eventually as replacement tools were found for Fedora it became apparent that Vista could go; it had to go,...

My First Attempt at a Blog

Well, I have not really ever had a blog, but I suppose I will make my first attempt at one here on LQ. I'm not going to do too much writing myself, but rather post a few of my favourite quotes that for one reason or another really mean something to me.

"Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this...
