didn't finish cleaning up in time before my mom got back ... she was pissed. house was a mess. had to go outside to clean some it and my allergies are killing me ... can't find my Claritin. then moved all my crap from the furnace room into my real room, now that most my relatives are gone. anyway, been working on job stuff ... learning/installing Postgres and PHP, two things I should've learned awhile ago but never had a reason to.|
Well except for "class" and "object" which is what C++ is...
PHP is like C/C++ for the objects and class and you have the usual C functions printf, fopen, fgets, strcat, strlen, strtok...
PostgreSQL support more the ANSI SQL than MySQL but I would never run a big site like LJ with it...
Anyway the two are very fun to work with... I have done some business interface (customers, invoicing...) with them and it was wonderful... I came from the MS NT world and was impress by them... Specially PHP which way better than ASP... ASP are buggy and I don't say that just cause I hate MS, it was true...

I runned some queries with it and got to much response time... Anyway when you fetch 1000 records to create a webpage I would have prefered something more faster
