Yes, I like that quote as well.

For PHP, here are some good sites to get going on:

www.newbienetwork.net // Tis my site =)
www.php.net/manual // Hands down the best online manual for a programming
language out there
www.devarticles.com // New player to the dev articles field
www.evolt.org // Has some good tutorials as well.
http://www.evolt.org/search/index.html?keywords=php // For your clicking
pleasure =)

And for google:

And yes, tis my site as number 1 =) (I am so proud of that =)) )

PHP evangelist? Yes.  I use it every day at work, and every day before I

Hope this helps you out some.
