This must be my lucky day! I was just posting to /. but lost my connection. After a sigh, and a swear at my telco, I took a long overdue peek at the road. And found myself speeding towards a brick wall, which I managed to avoid just in time!

It would be great if everyone would be found to have a disorder.
I have an "autistic spectrum disorder", and I don't consider it a disease, I consider it a brain/personality category.
Therefore, the term "disorder" to me implies that I don't fit in some order made up by people who don't know anything about me, who I have never even met.
If everyone would "have" a disorder, it would be an acknowledgement that the order they made up, isn't.
There is no order, everyone is different. No matter what kind of label is stuck on you by people who think they know everything, you are the only one who can truly know and help yourself.
But the lack of understanding of self, and feeling powerless to work on their problems, leads people to search for causes and solutions in the wrong places, like prescription/illegal drugs, doing their best to stay as much as possible in the victim mentality, materialism etc..
PS: yes, I know some drugs can be beneficial, but psychiatric drugs are mostly about symptom suppression.

PHP Gets Namespace Separators, With a Twist 523

jeevesbond writes "PHP is finally getting support for namespaces. However, after a couple hours of conversation, the developers picked '\' as the separator, instead of the more popular '::'. Fredrik Holmström points out some problems with this approach. The criteria for selection were ease of typing and parsing, how hard it was to make a typo, IDE compatibility, and the number of characters."
