I dont think any of us can break the E-mail habbit :) I agree with you there 
are alot of sites out there. That is a good idea to show ways to do things in 
different DB's sort of a DB centric site. I guess the main focus of the site is 
community help. Not only code snippet stuff. But Forums and E-mail help. The 
thing about PHP is it is a relativly new language and alot of people need help 
with it. So a site that allows them to comunicate directly with some "experts" 
can help them greatly. Also looking at code snippets with articles like 
phpbuilder helps people alot when the get stuck. I will let you know when it 
goes up :) Thanks for all your ideas.
