I'm a professional PHP programmer by day and occasional hacker by night. I like Propel, Symfony 1.x and Zend Framework, and have an interest in P2P technologies (for stuff other than file-sharing, although that's good too). I am planning on winning the lottery so I can do the night stuff during the day.
I've written about how to ask questions on StackOverflow - hope someone finds it useful.
