Re: "The sky is falling"
> DO NOT BLAME USERS
While better designed software can certainly help (the "security center" in XP
SP2 is an ENORMOUS improvement, for example), it remains a fact that user
education is the decisive part. Do you expect doors to automatically prevent
opening to dupers? Certainly not. Why would you expect that from computers? The
reason why people are reasonably safe against the "classical" forms of fraud is
that children are taught from small on not to trust strangers at the door. The
same needs to happen in the IT world.
Templating template languages
I'm regualarily amazed how much fuss is made about templating sytems for PHP...
Can someone please explain to me what this crap is good for? After all, PHP
*itself* is a templating language! What's the point then of using templates
with some weird custom syntax in PHP? What does the fancy function presented
above, or any of the more formalized PHP templating systems offer, that I can't
do just as well using "require('template.inc.php')" with "<?=$time?>" instead
of some crazy "%%TIME%%"?
