This is my first post on the new site. Since the server crashed (over at my previous, shared, hosting service), I've been working on independent hosting for Metadope.com, and here is the result. As seen in the footer of these pages, I am now running ProcessWire for the blog and public-facing pages. Adding PHP as yet-another-language, I don't feel the same comfort and expertise as I do in C & C++. Independence requires I delve deeper into the code.
Learning these many scripting languages (Perl, Python, and now PHP) over the years has been gratifying, but I get nervous the further I get from the metal.
