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.
