comment Are Microsoft fonts like Impact safe to use in Open Source projects?
I want to bundle the font to avoid the implicit dependency.

The open source project in question is that of a meme generator.

@MichaelT I know that there a fonts out there with an explicitly permissive licence, but Impact is the one used in this specific use-case (meme generation). I guess I'll have to look for lookalikes. Could you post that as an answer?

comment Are frameworks used for “big” websites?
@CodeCrack that's because there isn't one. Sorry to disappoint you. There's no such thing as a "high quality framework" that will allow you to magically code and keep maintenance cost low. That's your job as a programmer, not the framework's. The framework's job is to get you started quickly, most frameworks don't really help you beyond that, and some even do that badly.

@CodeCrack also, that lists popularity, not quality. There's a heaven-and-earth difference between those two. Would you call WordPress a high quality tool? I wouldn't. It still powers approximately 20% of all websites on the web.

comment Are frameworks used for “big” websites?
@CodeCrack The way I see it, there currently are no "good" PHP frameworks. You cannot expect an end-to-end framework to match all of your data, business, storage and display needs, of every application. You can come close. A better way would be to take modules of functionality (like what Symfony does), and use them separately. In that sense, you can say that Symfony or Zend are not as bad as the rest.

@CodeCrack CodeIgniter is pure horse crap. If you compare all of the crappy PHP frameworks to a garbage bag, CodeIgniter is the liquid that's dripping from the bottom.

comment What are the differences between server-side and client-side programming?
It depends. Some client-side code depends on the existence of a server (prime example: AJAX).

comment Can someone help me understand MVC?
You lost me at "Models are essentially databases". Models are most definitely not databases. "Instances" of these models are most definitely not rows in the database.
