Ok out of curiousity, Solo is running a little coding experiment to give you a chance to see how the same task is implemented in the three server-side processing systems of Cold Fusion (CF), PHP Hypertext Pre-processor (PHP) and Active Server Pages (ASP). There is a small, ordinary task involving database access and querying, output to html, saving output to file and transfering it off the server via the smtp (e-mail) and FTP protocols. If you know any of the above languages, and know how to do at least the first two steps (db query + html output) then give it a shot – it’s a good way to learn. I’ve mirrored all the information found off Solo’s site here – should contain everything you need. Send solutions to me or Solo.
