Cool... finaly. You won't believe how many people use echo(). And I
realy don't know why. But, hey, if we take a look at many of the
(pieces of) scripts you see passing by on this list people don't
seem to care about error-checking. Many of 'm don't even look at the
logfiles or don't have anything logged into them.
And ofcourse I have to admit what's so interesting about
error-checking printf? Well... I say, you always have to check
anything that returns a value. You can better check to much than not
enough. You agree?

Think my error-checking failed :)

I must admit... it's a bit strange on a PHP-list but hey, the real
problem he had was in the JS, so...

Ah... okay... Can be useful... But isn't that more of... you know...
like RTFM?!?! But, hey; it's true alright. Do it all the time.
Well... pretty often anyway.
