    Howdy!

    What to say? I'm in San Antonio, TX. I'm 28. And...that's about it. I've been playing around with web design for a while now but have NEVER completed a page. I'm trying to get serious about it now and actually have a client that I am attempting to complete. Wish me luck hehe.

    I can't program to save my own life so that is also on the agenda in the coming months, to at least acquire basic to intermediate HTML skills. Again, wish me luck!

    I'll have a lot of questions to send your way from time to time so I hope you don't mind. I'll try and make them as direct and clear as possible but of course I have to understand whatI am trying to say first. Last time... Wish me luck!

    Thanks

    Hello there QuietDean... not so quiet since you were the first one to speak up and reply

    I do hope to be able to help out others someday. I know a little about a little and a lot about.. well a little :-) but I am having fun with all of this.

    I even posted my first Question!

    Take care and Adios!

    Thanks!

    Hmmm, how big is the developer community in San Antonio? I figured most of them are up in Austin instead.

    You dont see me out getting rich lol, then again I have never really tried. I have done a site for special olympics which does not bring anything and has to be payed for. I have a DJ friend who hosts a "Beatles" radio show, he is interested in a site which I may do for him. Other than that I have never actively pursued it, but I always have my ears open

    But but but...

    I thought that this was THE way to get RICH beyond my wildest dreams!! Another dream shattered! Hmmm, I wonder if Yak Farming is still profitable.

    I am doing this as a second source of income and a completely unreliable one at that The page I am on now should be for about a grand I think... maybe $800 since I have made them wait an awfully long time for it . Layoffs at WorldCom kind of took the fire out of me to do any kind of work except job searching. And now I start at USAA Monday!

    I've never wanted to see a cubicle so bad in my life. Stir Crazy is not the word for it.... Blender Crazy is I more like it.

    We'll see how things unfurl from this point.

    Go Spurs Go!

    Talking Welcome,

    I'm no pro either, but be glad to give a hand with whatever I can.
    Too bad 'bout your job situation. I'm in the same industry and for some reason I can only find time to do some HTML/CSS troubleshooting for people while I'm at work. Our department has lost about 75% in the last year and a half, and I'm joining committees just to have something else to do!

    Just don't let anybody hurry your programming. Think about what you want to do and always make sure you've got the most recent version saved somewhere BEFORE you sit down to experiment. (VOICE OF EXPERIENCE).
    Have fun around here. Read some of the old threads. Good basics there.

    Welcome to the forums. Don't worry about any lack of programming experience hampering your HTML coding future - it won't.

    HTML is a very easy and basic template type language that doesn't get into typical programming decision trees until one advances to JavaScript and other more intense platforms.
