    I apologize for the lack of relevance to this thread. I wanted to get in touch with you, and I didn’t know how.

    I totally enjoyed the podcast made by Laura Thompson and yourself on PHP and MySQL Web Development for OnOpen Source. I especially loved the comments about frameworks and framework developers. I also loved the comments about Ruby on Rails.

    I would really like to know, how do you feel about Python? If you had included Python in the comparison of PHP and Ruby, what would you say?

    I think one of the reasons I don’t talk much about Python, is that I am not sure I have much interesting to say about it. It seems to appeal to purists who like their code cleaner looking than pragmatic PHP programmers do. It seems to be a valid choice for big web projects, in that like PHP, you should be able to easily find a high profile application that is much busier than yours is likely to be.

    It does not seem to have as big or supportive a community behind it as PHP does. So there are not the same number of books, libraries, blogs, magazines, or whatever to help you out, but there are plenty.

    More importantly, the Python community does not seem to have the same degree of blinkered evangelism that elements of the Java and Ruby communities do. There are not many people standing on street corners proclaiming that Python is the perfect language for all tasks, has no trade-offs and is superior to all others in all ways. There may well be people who think it, but perhaps they are the quietly smug type of fan, not the brash, overt type of fan.

    The Ruby and Java communities are more fun to prod, as parts of them are very immature and fanboyish. Look at it like this; the “Leave Britney Alone” guy would be fun to wind up. Somebody who says “Actually, I quite like Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up but could take or leave it” would be nowhere near as rewarding to rattle.

    Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues
    with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and
    I ended up losing months of hard work due to no back up.

    Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

    Look at the manufacturer’s specifications to see the measurements and decide
    what would work best for your home. During the real estate boom, condos in Sands Ocean Club were bought up
    like crazy. Both of these top treadmill exercise models are
    higher priced than most.

    Wonderful post however , I was wondering if you could write a litte more on this topic?
    I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit further.

    Bless you!

    These cigarettes have got a nicotine chamber where the cartridge is added along
    with an atomizer and a battery. Since traditional
    cigarettes include tobacco, cigarette brands are restricted with the various flavours that they offer.
    If you’re interested in trying an e-cigarette today, then I recommend you start at the Green Smoke Electronic Cigarette store.

    Technicians that say they are the best but have just started in their
    business can be just fraud. For large dents, cracks and
    gouges, the furniture will require a little more work to look
    presentable again. Other individuals notice about different techniques of dent removal,
    but they never work, and are beliefs such as using
    dry ice, or one of the “As seen on TV” gadgets.

    Tomorrow: Tomorrow I will be conducting another compiled list of how you can make extra money from home.
    However, occasional treasures are sometimes discovered.

    Nowhere are swimwear choices more important than a cruise, as most cruises take
    place through sunny destinations and allow tourists to spend time sitting by luxurious pools and spending time basking
    in the sun at some of the most popular beaches in the world.

    This ensures that they are incredibly supportive as well as having a lot of versatility.

    If one would like a bikini to soak up the sun in, the Belabumbum Fuchsia Ring Maternity Bikini is an absolute must.

    They list the features so that you know the qualities of a particular product prior to buying.
    The final alternative of wedding heels are large heel bridal shoes.
    Tanning is the biggest issue when you go to a beach.
