Remember the immediate visceral reaction you had to the double-clawed hammer? That's exactly the reaction most sane programmers have to their first encounter with the web programming language PHP. This has been going on for years. I'm no language elitist, but language design is hard. There's a reason that some of the most famous computer scientists in the world are also language designers. And it's a crying shame none of them ever had the opportunity to work on PHP.

From what I've seen of it, PHP isn't so much a language as a random collection of arbitrary stuff, a virtual explosion at the keyword and function factory. So I am not unfamiliar with the genre.

The final piece of the puzzle remains an entry-level turntable. For thrice that, the metal chassis and direct-drive of the Technics-SLaping Audio Technica LP makes for a more compelling proposition. Setup could not be easier: Tracking force and anti-skate are already taken care of. After fifty hours of run-in, the stage was set for a showdown: Preference would be given to an album that pre-dated the loudness wars. Clarity took a serious hit and eventually the needle jumped during a macro-dynamic swing during the penultimate cut.
