I'm not a hardcore programmer (clearly), I just memorize the functions I repeat the most. If said functions fall out of use for a while (like high school algebra), I tend to forget all of it. I'm sure it's the same for most people.
Almost every site that uses user accounts has a database and uses PHP or another programing language (e.g. CHU uses ASP) to make the accounts work.
PHP is a scripting language that interacts and is embedded inside HTML code, but is not a derivative of HTML. It's it's own separate language with it's own set of rules of how to use it.
I tried learning VB 5.0 back whenever Worms Armageddon was new with one of those Learn XXX in 24 Hours books, but I guess my Asperger's addled brain is structured in a way that whatever "simple" instructions that book contained wasn't really absorptive. I remember specifically that it was when WA was new because I installed it on a laptop my dad lent me when he started bringing me to work to separate me from my siblings with whom I fought constantly. So, '98? It had to be '98 because I remember installing a WA "Plus" theme for Win98 Plus. Anyway, the point is, I'm perfectly capable of building a custom PC and installing an OS on my own, but when it comes to actual programming (I really wish I knew whatever the AmigaOS was written in, because I'd totally write everything for it.), I'm as inept as I was in the math section of the SATs. Though I thoroughly aced the Verbal (now known as "Critical Reading", damned liberals) section.
