tsampaPRtable virgin release

Filed under: Training, Computing

Wrote a dirty little PHP script to generate a personal record matrix out of a plain text file to save me from the thumping headache associated with manually managing the jungle of <td> tags that comprises my powerlifting personal record matrix. Besides being practical, the script also adds a few goodies that are not feasible to do manually. tsampaPRtable is GPLd, so feel free to grab a copy whatever your PR needs.
