Maybe I'm just crazy.
The one thing I find is that there is "switch time" my brain requires before I remember, "Hey this is PHP..." and I'm back to coding normally. Because all three languages are very different--I use Object Pascal (3 variants), C# (less, but handy), and PHP--I can't get around the syntactic and methodology differences without that time.
Soon as I get that "Oh yeah" message I'm fine though.
Programmers are in a race with the Universe to create bigger and better idiot-proof programs, while the Universe is trying to create bigger and better idiots. So far the Universe is winning.
