I quite like this simple statement from the WASP framework docs;
Every framework needs an error screen. Pink is used in WASP because it is especially frighteningI don't think it's very wise to make your error screen frightening, but boy is it ever tempting, and because they have had the balls to do it they get an award.
I wonder what ever happened to the project? Their latest release was in 2006.
Perhaps the idea of making PHP more like Java didn't catch on! No award for that I'm afraid.
