It has been a while since I blogged here. Have been busy with life and other things but plan to restart a more technology focused blogging effort here and see where that takes us. Also have been exploring the possibilities with the FaceBook platform. Never thought I'd say this but I'm actually not allergic to the idea of working with PHP.
This deserves an "LOL" ...
In any case, I think this goes with my (borrowed) philosophy of working with the lowest common denominator scripting/administration tool for the longest time that I can remember!
When everyone was advocating VBA and ExecuteMonkey (no such product exists btw) I was using the humble MS-DOS Command interpreter to do some funky stuff (Thank You "FOR" statement!) similarly, it is much easier, IMO, to write an SQL script, shell out to windows and do things rather than wring an extended proc in SQLServer. With the advent of PowerShell, things have no doubt changed drastically, but it will take time before it becomes 'ubiquitous' as it were.
So then, why not PHP? The way I see it, PHP is still the work horse of the web and still running millions of forums without much fuss on $10/month accounts. So be it! I says to this predicament!
I have discovered some wonderful PeopleSoft blogs which I will be adding to my blogroll and hopefully blogging more regularly about Peoplesoft Technical issues as well.
Wish me luck.
