citation to story of PHP needs fixing?
The page about the story of PHP as being moved or removed from Zend server. I leave it for the moment, maybe someone else can find the new location. ciao --Balubino 18:21, 14 Sep 2004 (UTC)
What "Danish-Canadian" is supposed to mean? He lives in Canada but his parents are Danish? One of his parents is Danish, the other - Canadian? Please make it more clear. --Daggerstab 09:44, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
I asked. He was born to Danish parents while they were stationed in Greenland and moved Denmark when he was 3 and then to Canada when he was 12. He has Canadian citizenship now and lives in California. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Joeuser12 (talk • contribs) 08:29, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
It wasn't immediately clear to me what this meant, and the context it's used in baffles me. 'Bachelor of Arts and Science in Systems Design Engineering' seems like it could have multiple meanings. WP:MOSDEF? --MaXiMiUS 18:56, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Can Lerdorf be accurately described as a computer scientist, as opposed to a programmer or a software engineer? The article doesn't describe any contributions made by Lerdorf to the computer science literature, for example. Neilc (talk) 07:14, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Picture - hair, or hat?
"[...] he also came up with the LIMIT clause [...]. It is the origin of the LIMIT clauses found in MySQL and PostgreSQL."
This is not correct. The LIMIT clause has been standard since SQL92 - he didn´t invent it. Thus, the origin of the LIMIT clause in MySQL and PostgreSQL is within SQL92. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 18:04, 20 September 2010 (UTC)
Category:Greenlandic Inuit people
In 2014, this category was added to Category:Greenlandic Inuit people, but no citations were given to verify this. Is it true that Rasmus Lerdorf is of Greenlandic Inuit ancestry? Jarble (talk) 05:34, 28 March 2016 (UTC)
