A Few Good Posts

I’ve decided that for the two visitors a day I get, I might as well pass on some good info. I’m not very good at communicating anything original, so what I’m going to do is start posting a few good posts that I’ve seen over the past few days. Here’s volume 1 in no particular order:

– Good tips from the guys that run Zappos.com

25 Resources to Get You Started with PHP from Scratch – Pretty good reference for someone wanting to get started writing their own code. If I had something like this back when I was learning php, I’d probably be alot better at it than I am now.
