I love this list!  It was invaluable when I was first learning PHP
back in 05.  Although now I use it so little that I just tend to annoy
and anger everyone.

My first love is not PHP.  I have been a C/C++ programmer for more
than 25 years.  Windows (back when you started it by running the
executable on the DOS command line), *nix (mostly AIX, HP-UX, SCO
varieties, and, of course Linux), embedded, and some other
environments that I either can't remember or don't want to.  I have
worked with, designed in and/or used most of the major databases.  I
even wrote my own (back in the day) on two occasions. Also, I am sure
there is a whole pile of things that I have done that I can't remember
now (I have an excellent memory, it's just not that long).

I seem to remember a couple of 100+ threads on this list.  I haven't
seen that for quite some time.  I guess that means that we don't have
any more PHP questions or issues or we're too busy.
