I just know as soon as I get up from my desk to go get lunch, that file I need to post today is going to be delivered. And then I’ll come back to a project manager wondering what the hell is taking me so long.

Not that this is terribly useful, but…
If anybody cares, there are 266,669 prime numbers between 1 and 1,000,000
According to the php script I wrote, anyway.

I was laughing, but it made me feel dirty. Why do people send me links to this stuff?

I’ve finally done it. I’ve finally gotten off my duff and started teaching myself PHP. I bought a book on it several months ago, but hadn’t actually started using it until last night.
I think I just needed some motivation, in the form of a good starter project. Something more complex than spitting out “Hello World” or regurgitaing form input back at the user.
A friend of mine has this idea for her website which appears to be perfectly suited for PHP. It also has the added advantage of not being too terribly difficult to code, (I think,) and has room for some enhancements down the road.
I also have some ideas for more extensive PHP based projects for work – but those are a bit ambitious for me to tackle just yet. I need to learn what I’m doing first.
Anyway – I have a question for you other web developer types: Are there any PHP books you’d recommend? Also, since I plan to segue into more complex database driven web applictions at some point, (for the projects at work,) are there any MySQL books or resources I should look into?
(Gah. Has it really been a month since I wrote anything?)
