    Tips for the noob: Source code is the best place to start looking and learning, then move on to the manual.

    Why does everybody reverse the pet types/names?

    Anyway, great to meet you for the first time, dotwebbie...thought that you were one of those mods that kinda just left...

    Interesting comment Merve...

    For the same reason we use associative arrays...

    The human mind is stimulated by memory triggers. So the pets name is the trigger for all that they know about that particular animal. Thus the mind will usually cause us to type the trigger first, so that it has time to think (it stalls) to query itself for the rest of the info. It is also more personal that way.

    So why is the question asked in that order then?

    Because it causes the responder to realize that the type of animal is required and valued. Thus they will give us the name and some info on type, etc.

    Hmmmmm.... What can we learn about PHP from this...?

    You sure know your psychology...interesting, considering I think everybody did that...but I know for sure that I wouldn't...(or at least I think I wouldn't) I have only been programming in PHP for a half-year now. Whereas, the mods have been programming in it for much longer. I'm starting to see the connection here.

    One may say that it doesn't matter if it's a half a year. A half year is a long time. Still, I haven't worked much with associative arrays, so it hasn't subconciously penetrated my head.

    Well it has only been about 6 months for me as well. I am really not a big psychology buff or anything, of course how can we not be in life? I just thought it was a good situation to compare associative arrays to. I am a bit mental so psychologists are my enemies... Right?

    We take care of the PEBoD (paranoid/evil beaver of death). Read almost any thread in the Echo Lounge and you'll find out all about him.

    He's sleeping right now. He just ate a guy named....STOLZYBOY?! Bad beaver! Bad beaver! Very, very, very, very, very bad beaver!

    Stolzyboy, you okay? I was afraid the beaver ate you!

    I'm going to have to chastise that damn beaver...and in case you didn't notice, I am not an underling, and neither is Moonglobe. He owns the PEBoD (or does the PEBoD own him?) and I am the caretaker of that paranoid beaver.
