I am amazed at how "php is a shit language" is still such a thing, in any listing or discussion, especially of the "what should a noob learn" variety.

Yaknow... it powers the damn web. If you wanna do web, do php. It's actually pretty good.

And if you're planning on doing something else in CS, maybe it's not even relevant.

I love how Stargate SG-1 would subtly break the fourth wall. Like, in one episode Carter and O'Neil are in an elevator, and there's a long pause of silence, so she begins humming, but she's humming the show's theme song.

Did anyone read Merlin's short rant on D7 v D8/D9 yesterday? twitter.com/merlinofchaos/stat

I was sort of shellshocked when Drupal shifted - well, lurched, really - into the Symfony/etc ecosystem. It really did leave a lot of things behind, including people. And while composer packages aren't quite the howling nightmare of Node, a tremendous amount is "under the hood" now.

Putz.

"The .phar file extension has been added to Drupal's dangerous extensions list"

This shouldn't make me laugh.

That lovely feeling when you finally start closing all the tabs you've opened the past two days while you duckduckgoed, stackoverflowed, and phpnetted the living crap out of a particularly vexing problem.

Oh, PHP. Some days you're just magical.

I hate that about you.
