Fothered posted a topic in AnnouncementsHello Larry, I was just wondering if you could please let me know your thoughts on the recent announcement that Microsoft will no longer be supporting PHP from version 8 onwards? Do you think that it will mean that PHP will disappear? There are quite a few PHP frameworks that might also be affected too. Do you think there might be some 'workarounds' that will keep PHP from falling away? I love PHP and think it's a great language, and the idea of it dieing out is a little bit sad:( Thank you for your time:) Kind regards, Andrew.
Are We Smarter Than Microsoft?My local newspaper had a short article: "5-year-old beats Xbox security" A 5-year-old San Diego boy has outwitted the sharpest minds at Microsoft--he's found a backdoor to the xBox. He logged into his father's xBox Live account. When the password login screen appeared, he simply hit the space button a few times and hit enter. His father noticed him playing games he supposedly couldn't access. They reported the issue to Microsoft, which fixed the bug and listed the boy on its website as a "security researcher". Probably most of us are doing our security the way Larry taught us, and I hope we are smarter than Microsoft.
