in reply to Favorite Descriptive Variable Name

I'm guessing that anyone else that chose $bob as their favorite is also named Bob.

I use this var in almost every prog/script I write as a debugging var because I know I'll remember what I called it when I go back through to remove all my debug code ;)

    hehe, I chose $bob, but my name is Wes.

    Why? Bob is, IMHO, the best name of all. If I ever feel like legally changing my name, it's going to be Bob.

    After all, it's a palindrome! Hooray for Bob!

      ah, Bob, but you spell your name backwards...
