PHP Server Variables

I know when I first started out learning PHP it was difficult finding good examples or live demos of simple PHP in use. Often I'd have a large number of files used to demonstrate built in PHP functions. So, to help any budding PHP developers out there I compiled a list of the PHP Server variables along with what data they provide.  $_SERVER variables can be used in multiple ways from getting information about your visitors to script security.

SR Photography offered a nice gesture, if I created a PHP back-end contact form they would take infant pictures of our new born son.  Created a short and simple PHP script with field validation (NOTE: Did not design site or form, just the back-end functionality of the form).

Game Ladder Script

Two years ago I decided to check out an old gaming group that I used to play with years before that. I created a plugin to seamlessly add a ladder system into their web site.  A ladder system is typically used to match one-on-one matches. This allowed the group to add friendly competition without major overhaul of their web site.  I only made one version, but I plan on developing it a little bit further. The script allows for multiple games,which are dynamically set, and requires only one additional SQL table.
