I need sleep, going without it for almost 2 weeks is not doing me any good. Then again I have managed to setup PHP on my XP machine and I am busy studying it (or trying to), so I guess it HAS some merits, not being able to sleep.

Why on Earth would you want to learn PHP? Sure, a good decision if the only other choice would've been perl, but a bad one if there's also python around. ;)
XP?! I bet you still haven't tried that knoppix CD... :>

Yeah well I was bored and I needed something to keep me occupied :)

Bored? Let me get this. You have lots of work, lack of sleep, and you're bored? :]
About PHP: I've tried it, wrote a very simple portal, and it's a bit awkward. Sure, simple and all, but the syntax just repelled me somehow. Then I started learning Python (right now I've got the task to write another simple portal) so I'd see first-hand why everyone is so loud about it. I've got to say it's a lot more powerful, there's even mod_python for apache, and I'm quite impressed by its (a bit unconventional) syntax and object model. So I'll be loud about it, too. ;)

Right so whats so good about Python then? Does it support IIS?

Just check out a .py file to see a bit of Python - I won't write a manual here. ;)
You framed that question in an odd way: it's IIS who should support Python, not the other way around. And it does!

Sweet. Maybe I'll get some PDF files and try to pick that up instead of PHP. PHP's a little dry for me, it could just be me actually

Naaah, you can't be dry, it rains every day in Malaysia! It's PHP I tell you! ;>
