Well the OP was a bit of a 'tongue in cheek' question.

I applied for the PHP role as a bit of a joke, but the test result and the 'economic factors' have meant taking it more seriously. The salary on offer is around £70K/$100K plus substantial bonus, pension and other benefits, which is exceptionally good for PHP role.

If you spot any bugs in my solutions, it's because I've deliberately left them in as an exercise for the reader! :-)

    "'economic factors' have meant taking it more seriously."

    "First order of business, survival". Seriously though, in the turbulent times in which we live I know people who have had to change industry entirely, rather than substitute a one tool for another within the same (or similar) discipline. As you rightly state a poor worker can do a bad job regardless of the tool in use. Simply because you use one tool at a day job doesn't mean you have to give up the other as a hobby.

    Previously I've introduced perl in jobs where it wasn't used at all. Sensible employers/clients wont ignore a tool when you can prove it's advantages.

    This a serious matter. Don't hesitate, some others dream of this - or even don't have any job.
