How bout:
  • Water Cooler PHP Confessions

  • The PHP Book That Is Banned in 29 States
I don't know about you, but if I saw a php book with these names on the shelf, ain't no way I wouldn't pick it up.

I don't think it is dead. I do think it has gotten a little lost in the shuffle. I was in the wiki about a month and noticed that there were not many changes since the last time I was in there.

I haven't got time to do anything with this at the moment and don't see that changing in the next few months. I suggested a while back that somebody with more time takes over the reigns :) It's an open-source dea after all :D

It's not dead, only slow. Isn't it? Please? :)

I already find the wiki very useful and check it out now and then to read and learn stuff.

You now what, maybe there's a tiny piece I can fill in myself. Was the echo 'Hello World' part already written?

I know why it's slow... I can't even find the wiki... I just searched the boards for a good 10-15 minutes and came up with nothing. I found that huge thread but am too lazy to look through it. Can I get a link?

Which reminds me it will be offline for a day or two this weekend as I move that domain to a another host...;).

My time got soaked up on other things for the moment too. If it's any comfort it's not exclusive to the book, the http://www.patternsforphp.com site has not been updated since the Autumn either.

Is the Wiki broken? This page (http://phpbook.quantum-star.com/doku.php?id=contentlist) seems to be showing code where it is not supposed to and the formatting of the page is totally wonky.

Ah! finally a link. I would look over the other topic about the book, but browsing the phpdn is such a pain with dialup. Only about 2kbps (of course, silly xp & vista both persist that I have 28kbps). To hard to search that many pages. I might like to help, too!

Haha. "... that's banned in 29 states" sounds like a bad book. (not bad as in low quality, bad synonyms: cool, awsome, mean, etc.)

Wonky. I like that. British term, correct? Yup, the link doesn't open for me either.

It would probably have been a useful resource for people like me looking for PHP solutions across PHP forums, shame it didn't go anywhere.
