If you know some programming and programs like Delphi, MSVC or DevC++, you can build a program to automate routine jobs for you, that's what I am going to do.

You can do that in PHP.

Yeah, but I always find a desktop program more convenient. :D Oh well now that I found XAMPP that might change.

You can write desktop apps in PHP.

PHP-GTK - http://gtk.php.net/
Roadsend Compiler - http://www.roadsend.com/home/index.php?pageID=compiler

With those together you don't need a server on the local machine. I've not actually tried using them mind you.

But the php applications will not have any gui right? There are no styling commands for php.

I just saw the compiler only, I thought GTK was just a runtime needed by the compiler. :P

I enjoyed this article from InfoQ about a website redesign for the CMS for guardian.co.uk that involved both Agile Methodologies and Domain Driven Design:

I would have preferred more code samples, but it still was a big inspiration. It seems like it's pretty relevant for the first portion of this discussion.
