Hi Everyone

This is my first post to this list. I am not a full time programmer.

I had been using Python for everything but for the past couple of months
I have been using PHP for a website. After using PHP, I am now finding
Python just too fussy and I am spending too much time debugging with it.
I think Python is a great language but as a part time programmer I just
want to get things done, I wish I could use PHP for everything but it's
not so great offline.

Based on this criteria alone, does Ruby sound about right for me? Is
there anyone who can compare the debugging time between the two?

Thanks in advance, hope this is not a stupid post-Patrick
