Slightly better one-click system:
- Open your favourite shell (click, sometimes)
- wget the patch file
- read through the patch file if you think it may be an ownage patch
- apply patch file
- ???
- Profit. Too bad for all those that have to manually apply the patch for lack of patch (or something similar)

The webhost I use (that will remain nameless) has pretty close to (if not more than) 99.99% uptime. This is on a shared host as well. The worst I get is about a minute down each month as the server gets power cycled.

PHP 4 end of life announcement

[13-Jul-2007] Today it is exactly three years ago since PHP 5 has been released. In those three years it has seen many improvements over PHP 4. PHP 5 is fast, stable & production-ready and as PHP 6 is on the way, PHP 4 will be discontinued.

The PHP development team hereby announces that support for PHP 4 will continue until the end of this year only. After 2007-12-31 there will be no more releases of PHP 4.4. We will continue to make critical security fixes available on a case-by-case basis until 2008-08-08. Please use the rest of this year to make your application suitable to run on PHP 5.
