Neil, you are a gentelman and a scholar! A pleasure to know you, even if only
in the cyberspace!
So what would you suggest to an old guy, who has been learning all his life
and will die ignorant, as far as PHP programming is concerned? If the answer
is "go for it", any elementary texts that you would recommend to a person,
who spent many years programming (before the Computer Science was invented),
but heard of PHP programs/scripts only two months ago?
PS: Does Pm reside in Canada too?
