A sad day

A sad day

My test server, after six years of loyal service, gave up on me at the weekend with a motherboard failure. The power surge also took out my (six year old) monitor, so I am now down to the laptop! I am in the process of getting replacements, but as a result this month`s update will be at least one week delayed, sorry! I can tell you it will be an in-depth tutorial on how to build a PHP 5 & MySQL server on Windows...
