PHP Rules

I was originally an ASP programmer but always lamented it was difficult to make well organized code in ASP, it always looked like a dog's breakfast. ASP.NET has come along now and it is difficult to do any ASP programming with the current Visual Studio tool set. We are supposed to use ASP.NET now but unless you are making a major client/server solution ASP.NET is overkill.
Also I most clients I deal with now are using Unix/Linux hosts. I decided to look at PHP and am delighted that it reminds me a lot of ASP and it is easy to make the transition. It is perfect for doing the minor jobs that most customer's require, although I am using it for an invoicing system that I am developing so I can invoice when I am on the job.
