Kisses to PDO, just don't mind the farts
November 17, 2005 @ 05:42:51

In his latest post, John Lim of PHPEverywhere talks more about the misunderstandings between him and PDO that seem to have been circulating.

Today I went out to lunch with someone who mentioned that I appear to be anti-PDO because of my last blog entry about PDO's progress. I was surprised. PDO is just another API to me, with warts and blemishes just like your girlfriend (or boy guy). If PDO farts, I'll tell you who farted. But hey, to fart is normal.

In fact I'm impatient for PDO and all its associated drivers to work properly, so i can stop testing it specially. Also if any truthful critique spurs the developers to make it better, the happier I'll be.

He's also diving into the code, really getting into PDO and testing, ensuring that it's not just his code that's causing the issue. And, of course, he's gotten the obvious question about PDO and ADOdb:

Someone else asked me in July if PDO is going to hurt ADOdb. I answered: Frankly i don't worry about adodb's adoption. I just try to design something i like to use, and enjoy other people benefitting from it. This isn't a race.
