Hold on, windows update deemed it necessary to install XP service pack 2. Hope everything will turn out okay.

Update: everything seems fine. So far.


Finally got round to upgrading my local PHP installation to version 5. All went well, except for the MySQL extensions which are turned off by default and which took me a while to realise. Oh, Migrating from PHP 4 to PHP 5 from the manual might come in handy to.
