Computer geeks

I was trying to find a web page about how to do something in PHP. I went to Google, and found a page that looked exactly what I needed. I read through every step and even set up my own test program to see if it would work. After I had read through everything on that page and had my test ready to go, I read the last line of the page:

"The above considerations and examples are only applicable to Unix-type systems and do not work under Windows! Happy programming!"

Why the heck don't you put that stuff at the first of the page? You know, before people who run on Windows read through your stupid article and waste their time setting up test pages. Darn you Darn you all to heck!!! You bunch of geeks.

I guess some people figure that if PHP works in linux, it's probably good enough. It's not very often that PHP is used outside of the LAMP environment (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP). If you want some help with PHP stuff, though, feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I've been doing it for a couple of years, admittedly all on linux boxes.

Holy cow, a comment. Crookston, I love you, man. FYI, my wife didn't like my chacabana, so I don't have it any more. D'oh!

I don't even remember what I was trying to do, I just remember that I was really irritated. I'll shoot you an email if I run into something major again. Thanks for the offer.

I'm guessing that chacabana thing you mentioned was that guy in a barrel. What woman wouldn't love that? Gross!

A chacabana (I don't know if I spelled that right or not) if the 4 pocket shirt thing. I still have the guy in the barrel, and he'll be proudly displayed in our china cabinet next time we move.

Man, I never got a guy in a barrel. Not that I feel terribly bad about that. However, I'm wearing a chacabana this very minute. They are excellent work shirts. This place has a good selection of used ones, and you can find some new ones here.
