Hello All. I have been given advice on how to remove myself from this
list, and taken it. I have tried on my own to discover how to remove
myself from this list. I have even ( something I am not proud of) hinted
that I might start irrelevant threads of conversation so you will ban
me. Unfortunately a look in my 'deleted items' folder shows all the
daily messages just thrown in there..... Isn't there somebody who is
responsible who instead of giving advice ( that never seems to work) can
simply remove me from the distribution list, delete me or whatever?  Yes
I signed up intentionally so I could understand a technology that I was
recruiting for, and yes it was helpful, but that was 2007 and I think it
is time for us to break up. 

So IF YOU HAVE THE CAPABILITY TO REMOVE ME "Make it so number one!".

Subject: [PHP] the state of the PHP community

Hi All,

I find myself wondering about the state of the PHP community (and 
related community with a PHP focus), so, here's a bunch of questions - 
feel free to answer none to all of them, on list or off, or add more of 
your own - this isn't for anything specific, just out of interest and 
sure I (and everybody who reads the replies) will learn something + 
doors/options/contacts may come of it. The only thing I can guarantee is

that I'm genuinely interested in every reply and will read every one of 
them + lookup every tech and link mentioned.

in no particular order:

What other languages and web techs do you currently use other than PHP?
- if you include html or css please include version, if js then 
preferred libs, and whether client or server side.

What's your previous language/tech trail?

Are you considering any new languages or techs, and if so which?
  - names / links

Is PHP your hobby/interest, primary development language, just learning

How many years have you been using PHP regularly?

How many years have you been working with web technologies?

Did you come from a non-web programming background?

Is your primary role web developer or designer?

In your developer life, are you an employer, and employee, contractor, 
freelancer, part of a team of equal standing members?

Do you tend to work on jobs for geo-local clients, clients in the same 
country, or do you work internationally 'on the web'?

How do you get your projects? do they come to you, word of mouth, do you

hunt and bid for projects, code call, visit clients, target clients 
individually you think you can help, or?
- not looking for trade secrets, just to get enough for an overall

Do you have any frustrations with the PHP community, do you find you 
want to talk shop but can't, or find people to work with but can't, have

projects in mind you want to do but can't find people to do them with

Do you network with other PHP'ers in real life - meetups etc, do you 
tend to shy away, or do you find you circulate in other web related but 
non PHP focussed communities?

Are you a member or any other web tech communities, opensource efforts, 
or standardization bodies - again, if so which?

Are there any efforts, projects or initiatives which are floating your 
boat right now and that your watching eagerly (or getting involved

ps: please *do not* flame anybodies answers, that really wouldn't be

Best & Regards,
