Appeal to Popularity

What's the project?
It's something completely revolutionary.
Um... yeah. So what is it?
We're going to maintain a database of all our products and let our customers see it online!
(PHB pauses for applause)
Wow. That's a revolutionary idea. So I'll put together a LAMP server and we'll be live in $arbitrary_timeframe
Lamp? What's that?
It just means that the site will be run on Linux, Apache, MySQL and Perl.
No, it has to be done in ASP.
What? Why?
Because ASP is better; it's what everyone uses.
(insert sounds of one of my eyes being popped out of its socket by the pressure in my head, followed by the sound of the PHB being thrown through a window)

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
