I hate PHP.

It just took me a good ten minutes to realise that I had typed $ids[i] instead of $ids[$i] in a PHP script.

And this is far from the first time I've made that mistake, which is because all the *real* programming languages I know have grown out of using prefixes to denote variables, and would not fail silently in such a case (well, VB would if you're mad enough to code without Option Explicit, but C and Java would fail noisily).

Did I mention that I hate PHP?
