PHP = Fast & Cheap? 
Okay - I admit it - I am careful. So careful in fact, that what our CLIENTS pay us to do from 9-5 is pretty much the OPPOSITE of what we do on the weekends.

The difference, I suppose, is time. Unlike many, we simply have no time to keep doing things over & over & over again...

So while we work on many a trendy 'tech for-hire, here in the home office using excessive, expensive, toss-out technologies is simply a "no no."

Why? Because - much like upgrading a word processor - we seldom find need to use the hottest new features. The right tool, for the right job?

Indeed, no matter how easy a vendor makes it for us to use their latest opiate, the fact remains that we've simply only had enough time to ''do things over'' about ... uh ... once per decade?

So as we also junked the heavyweight database - even the free stuff - in favor of using flat files, this weekend we decided to show off a little flat-file goodness under PHP.

You can see the results for yourself. While far from complete, the effort for the weekend was a nice face-lift for my oldest web-site (since 1997!) -Known as The Quote For Today, not only does that site run on a rinky-dink shared little server, but it does so far faster & better than it ever did while running under the more expensive stuff...

So here's to faster, cheaper... & better?

(... and our tech was not even 20 years old... Perhaps this means that even MODERN undertakings (let alone ancient space programs) can indeed enjoy all three, with the choice of only two?)

Enjoy the site,

-Rn
