I watched a coworker become the resident PHP expert using the following:

"How do you get the contents of a file into a variable?"
1) google "PHP get contents file
2) click link to get_file_content() manual page
3) copy/paste example code into current project file
4) tweak to fit

I chastised him for it at first - but after testing the PHP waters
myself, that's how ya learn PHP!  :)
