Well done!

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.

Am I being paranoid - or not paranoid enough?

Hey thanks Chris, it's an old favourite of mine - I'd been using it since it was in it's early stages. It's the most MVC/RubyonRails-like of the PHP frameworks. A lot of things it just does for free, or with a single line of code. And after 5 years, there's now a really decent community and great resources to help find out the tricky questions!
