@derickr @ramsey @Skoop @shochdoerfer It had value. Disorganized as all thing Open Source are, but reasonable levels of focus were had.

Don't forget to join us tomorrow for a live stream. The panel will include @heiglandreas@twitter.com, @rdohms@twitter.com, @rskuipers@twitter.com, @bobbloom@twitter.com, @cspruck@twitter.com. @JoePFerguson@twitter.com, @ramsey@twitter.com, @pollita, and @shocm@twitter.com. The topic will be PHP User Groups youtu.be/I9aDTqwhG6g

Alleged web developer confused by URLs, wonders if a prototype is the counterpart of an electrotype.

Seriously though, is there a polite way to say "prototype.php.net exists for the purposes of prototyping"?

Or should I stick with my go-to response: Sir, this is an Arby's™.

@ramsey I never post anything identifying in any of my screen caps. There was an actual name and an actual email address, but I don't doxx.

@kboyd Names, email addresses, and anything that can be used for identification are always changed in these posts.

I'm about 80% sure that what he really meant to write was "Where did the old mysql extension go?"

This is not a well written question by any standard. Even allowing for the likelihood that English is probably not his first language, it's just really really low effort and doesn't bother to show any work done before hand.

Ignoring the actual content and the fact that PHP 8 runs 5.6 procedural code just fine (unless it's broken code that needs fixing anyway), the part that caught my attention was the subject line and salutation.

There's something kind of adorable about him thinking that PHP is a 1-man effort and Rasmus is just sitting at home banging away on it all by himself.

@mwop Can't blame 'em, they're only wasting your time, not their own.

Hi! I write for a living, that's why I'm including a grammatical error in my opening paragraph!

Talking with coworker over zoom about a C++ diff, and got three syllables into "Paamayim Nekudotayim"" before I caught myself and said "Double twice dot... I mean double colon".

Man, PHP fucks with yer brain sometimes, doesn't it?

@NigelGreenway @ramsey You say that like it'd be so terrible, but you can fit php-8.0.0 on eight 1.44MB floppies. By 2022 standards, that's nothing.

I have so many questions that I'm actually inclined to reply.

Okay. Only thing hinky left is distributions repo, but that's not the M1's fault. That's just the fact that we've got a fuck lot of binary images in git.

Getting my release manager environment setup on Ubuntu 22.04 aarch64 (mac M1) and so far.... not too bad.

Except for that utter fucking panic trying to clone php-distributions, but I can prolly fix that... prolly...

@ramsey You're doing a fine job, I was just curious. :o)

((By which I mean that mastodon account. Not asking who's using the language, though that is of interest, just asking who toots from that address.))
