How amusing to see "PHP" and "the path to scalability" mentioned in a single title ^^) If you want to scale, better don't dig yourself deeper into the world of PHP.

Lorenzo, ho scoperto oggi il tuo blog e il framework seagull, e li trovo entrambe di qualità notevole, volevo ringraziarti per il lavoro e l'impegno che condividi con noi, alcune informazioni che ho trovato spiegate in modo "affrontabile" solo sul tuo blog, mi hanno tolto delle belle _patate bollenti_. sei un grande, complimenti.

Using XHProf can be difficult. thank you for the effective advice.
