Blythe, Pizza, mod_perl, PHP

Blythe ETA 5 minutes.
Pizza ETA 45-50 minutes.

I'm installing the latest Apache, Perl, and mod_perl on my personal Linux box, in order to start learning mod_perl again. I'm currently in a personal debate about whether or not to use PHP or mod_perl for the rewrite (or semi-rewrite) of LiveJournal. With mod_perl I'd get to save more code, but mod_perl is kinda ugly, but it's fun and powerful. With PHP I'd get to learn PHP (which I've wanted to do), but I'd have to rewrite all the code.

So, the plan is to learn mod_perl as well as I can in the next few days, then make my decision.
