  1. Did you read the article on digg about the company that was going to scrap their PHP monstrosity (>100,000 lines of code) for a rewrite in Ruby on Rails… Then, after trudging along for almost 2 years, they figured out that it wasn’t designed for their needs. And did a complete rewrite in PHP in two months in something like 16,000 lines or something like that.
