comment PHP file_put_contents File Locking
LOCK_EX to acquire an exclusive lock (writer). Also see second note about the kind of locking that is going on. "flock() uses mandatory locking instead of advisory locking on Windows. Mandatory locking is also supported on Linux and System V based operating systems via the usual mechanism supported by the fcntl() system call: that is, if the file in question has the setgid permission bit set and the group execution bit cleared. On Linux, the file system will also need to be mounted with the mand option for this to work."

comment Which mobile devices cover the widest spectrum for testing?
I would also check your current web server logs for this data or use Google Analytics to see which devices visit (or try to visit) your site the most. Popular devices vary from location to location. For example I knew a client in a location where the most popular devices owned by people were blackberry devices so it was important test on those. You can also purchase market share data, example Gartner will sell you a report for $9995 gartner.com/DisplayDocument?id=2015915 (lol)

comment Web mining and Information extraction
It doesn't hurt to check your location for possible job demand in this field to determine if it's in high demand or not. Also if you do decide in this career path, would it require you to travel or move from your current location in order to find the proper training? A lot of the pros/cons are embedded in some of these fundamental questions. If it is to work/study elsewhere you might want to research those locations' demand for jobs related to this field. I would also recommend visiting a university and speaking to a few faculty members to get a face to face answer.
