PHP or bust in ´08!

A couple years back, I wanted to teach myself PHP but time hasn´t been very friendly or a readily available commodity around here so it hasn´t happened, yet. But ´08 is the year I do it!

I figure I´ll start off with a CMS that is based on PHP & go from there. I´m sure I´ll want to creat custom modules, at some point, so that´ll be nice for the hands-on practice. Well, that´s the plan anyway, it might vary a bit later. ;)

MLK Speech

I heard a great speech this morning given originally in 1968 in front of UC Berkeley's Sprowl Hall. It would be MLK's final speech in California & sounded like it was still relevant today, 40 years later. I was driving to my job & had goosebumps the throughout the WHOLE speech. We were blessed to have people like Dr. King, but they were taken too, too early from us.

From the Vault Radio was the source of the speech (I think that´s part of the Pacifica Archives). So when you go to KPFK, look up the archives for this day & download everything during the morning commute hours, You´ll be glad you did.

We still need you, Dr. King! Thank you, Pacifica, FTV & KPFK for dedicating resources to preserving such wonderful free speech!
