I've been here all along!  :)

Seriously, we cover some of this in our class as well, and at our 
monthly PHP user group meetings.  I'm actually writing up a small paper
on this and other topics.  If you're interested in it, let me know.

I can also be reached at 734-480-9961 if you've questions that might
be faster talking about than emailing, and my AIM is 'mgkimsal' is 
you're on that and need some help.

That goes for anyone else on the list too...
