    im looking to finally settle down and learn this properly instead of just hacking shit together.

    any recommendations?

    Thanks. Searching for that one also lead me to dow.. er purchase through a bookseller these other two: "PHP Objects, Patterns, and Practice" and "Practical Web 2.0 Applications with PHP" which were recommended in the torr.. er book review.

    I'm beyond the basic stuff, now I'm trying to learn OOP and big-picture stuff.

    I recommend both of those books as well. More along the lines of serious developers that are beyond the basics, like you said.
