Here's one that's likely to get a couple of heated opinions:

Which is better, ASP or PHP, in terms of developing professional quality web sites?

i think ASP is more for compiling large databases, and is only really needed for that - NGEmu uses php, but as far as i know, it incorporates it with mySQL databases to store all the news, articles etc. I am only starting to learn php, and i don't think i am going to move onto asp anytime in the next few years

PHP + mySQL all the way ! The possibilities are just endless ... On NGEmu for example :

Message board software : PHP/mySQL
Link database : PHP/mySQL
Download database : PHP/mySQL
Compatibility list : PHP/mySQL
News displaying script : PHP

Any questions left ? :D

Well I've personally written an entire application for a University deparment in ASP, so I know it's capable. The student front-end for our class enrollment and unit management for the University is written in ASP also.

ASP + Oracle combination of coarse.

Whilst the IIS annoys me a lot because of security threats and just generally having issues upon installation & just working, it still appears to be the easiest option so far.

And to the person who was new to PHP, trust me, ASP is not hard at all, as long as you have some programming experience. It's really just a subset of Visual Basic instructions.

I thought your News-Script is Coranto which is written in Perl.

Coranto is written in Perl, but the news is stored in a mysql database and edited using php, as far as i know :)

yeah, the news is stored in a text file, but afaik, the categorys go to different tables in the sql database, and when u got to ngemu.com/psx it calls in the psx news only etc.

that is how i think it works, but i am probably wrong :eek:

Hmm...that would be a possible solution. But using a SQL-Database with perl isn't easy.
*looks_for_bobbi*
Hey Bobbi tell us how it works, please.:confused:

Well, you should read more carefully, I said "News displaying script : PHP" ... displaying, not posting ... we'll soon completly replace Coranto though, I already wrote most parts of a completly new news script.

Anyway, Coranto stores the news in a text file, that's right. But there is an addon called CorantoSQL, which puts everything into a mySQL database as well, and that one is installed. Now, when you go to the mainpage, the category is set to 'main' and that tells our news displaying script, that it should get all news from the database. When you go to the playstation section, it's set to 'psx' so you'll only see these ... it's a great way to add new features, like the "Print article" or "Send to a friend" options.

Hope this explains things a bit,

I fully agree. Since I've been programming VB for quite some time, it took me no time at all to start writing ASP code.
