PHP Conference in New York

The New York PHP Users Group has announced that it will hold a PHP Conference in New York City in June. NYPHP is not the typical techie user group where a bunch of spotty geeks sit around telling war stories. NYPHP has monthly presentations with substantial content on a variety of topics, offers classes, not only in PHP syntax, but in practical implementations as well, including security issues.

To find out what PHP represents as an full-strength solution to enterprise-class problems and as an alternative to that bloated, (see also) marketing hype whose name we won’t mention, attend this conference.

Who attends Milton High School other than males and females?

Reuters reports today that a male high-school student in an affluent Boston suburb has filed a federal civil-rights complaint against his school because “the girls are treated better”.

OK, the obligatory “Get used to it kid. Wait until you’re married!”

Aside from the whiny complaint “Aw mom, Tiffany gets a better seat in Hegelian Dualism than I do!”, we have to note the principal’s reaction to the filing of this complaint:

“I don’t understand any basis for that complaint. Milton High School does not discriminate against males, females or anybody else for that matter.

So exactly which genders, other than male or female, is Dr. Drottar, the school’s principal, concerned about here?

As the school’s own Affirmative Action Plan shows, the 2000 census did not find any genders in Milton, MA other than male and female.

It’s heartening to see diversity and inclusion go beyond even the known human genders, although it apparently doesn’t apply to everybody who wants to be included.
