I Know Nothing, But I'm Willing To Learn.

The way I have learnt my limited amount so far :P is by finding php code (in scripts, on websites, @ php.net etc) then copying it out, then understanding what it means .. I don't want to know that it does something just because you said it does, I want to know what it means when I'm typing it. I find it easier to learn & remember if you know what you're doing.
So, look/copy, then understand, then re-read it. Then I'll start fiddling with it, breaking it apart, adding on what I have learnt trying to get it to work. Even editing one line could screw the script up completely, so I make sure that there is a backup.
Basically, I think the best way to learn (from my limited experience), is to get your hands on any sort of code and try editing it and generally making a mess *grin*.
Anyway, I'm usually always around so if you want a hand with something or need someone who is still learning then a PM would be great :)
