Where were you yesterday when I needed this kind of explanation!  :)

To explain the nature of my site and why I chose the route that I did, I 
used a brief explanation of how the client-server-PHP system works.  
But, with no experience with any other scripting language, I didn't have 
much to justify why I chose PHP (the real reason is a matter of 
ethics ;).

I would love to have had your explanation of ASP's application object vs 
PHP's lack of an "application object" when I wrote that.  I'm saving 
this post.
