In our usual epic-length conversation we talked about:
- The HipHop Virtual Machine
- The soul-crushing experience of the “PHP internals” mailing list
- Ed’s Open Sourcing Mental Illness Summer Tour
- The TrueNorthPHP Call for Papers opened up and the code is open source
- Discussions about how the three of us find the energy to give a shit about everything
- Alternate books from the Bible
- Comforting sounds to work too
- Finally, how can we tell if Sara is pissed?
