Update[1]: Zend PHP Certification – Economic Indian Price

As I blogged earlier , the Zend PHP Certification price is too high to afford in India and I contacted Daniel Kushner, Director of Education Zend Technologies Ltd. Recently Daniel Kushner and Idan Zuckerman (Zend) informed me that they're working with Pearson to fix the Indian price. In the meantime they said that they could offer me a voucher for 120 USD (original price is 200 USD). Though now I can afford to 120 USD, it is still high (MCP costs only 50 USD) for any Indian PHP guys. Anyway, I think it's a great improvement and I really applaud their efforts. I have planned to get the voucher after 1-month time though it has 6-month validity—as I have to prepare for the exam first. I have also been asked to refer friends and colleagues for this 120 USD offer. If you want to avail this offer, please buzz me (only India based PHP guys).

Tim Van Wassenhove's (PHP) Blogmarks

Tim Van Wassenhove , a c.l.php regular maintains wonderful blogmarks . Most of the blogs are PHP related and it is faster to access than my Sage, RSS reader . It is interesting to see that Tim has blogmarked my—this simple blog too:) IMHO, it would be better to display timestamps along with the links and to have a TOC of blogs in the top.
