I’m Dreaming About PHP and MySQL

Over the weekend I struggled long and hard trying to figure out just how to make PHP and MySQL work on my computer. I pored over two books I had on the subject, and zillions of relevant websites. Finally I figured out that Unix lingo on the Terminal and some PHP on Dreamweaver. I’m trying to learn these two very lucrative languages. There is much money to be made with such knowledge. Well, I spent so much time on them that both these past two nights, I dreamt about PHP and MySQL. I distinctively remember dreaming about the various codes jumping off the page with my mind saying, “yes this will work. This will make it work, if you go like this and this and this.” I love that my mind, my subconscious takes control at night to try and figure out what I can’t during the day. But it’s also a bit disturbing. Who else dreams about computer programming code?!?!?!

    HAHAHAHAHAHA! I’ve been trying to learn these, too, but haven’t had as much time to devote to it lately. But I DO remember studying Calc so hard in college that on one break, while tossing a football outside, my mind’s eye actually SAW the formulas needed to calculate the area underneat the football arc, the changes due to wind strength and direction, etc. Very strange, yes. 😉

    that’s awesome! Well I’ve figured it out, after another night of dreaming about PHP. I’ve finally got it to work, or I should say, I’ve finally figured out how it works. I’m sure the software is quite good; just me who lacks da skilz! 🙂

    I’ve gotta create templates now for businesses….

    I’ve had solutions to qmail routing issues come to me in dreams before, so I know how you must feel. With PHP issues, I usually solve the problem when I work on it for a few hours, get frustrated, and come back to it the next day. I end up fixing it in less than 20 minutes.

    Which OS are you running it on top of? I can tell you right now that trying to make PHP work on IIS is pain. Pain, pain, pain. Don’t ever do it.
