HTML from HELL
Our local church has launched a webite, hasn't everyone? Our Pediatric clinic is also launching one, but it is still a work in progress, so no link here. This is a form of advertising, I know. A part of me, being the dinosaur that I am, remains against such advertising on behalf of churches and physicians. Another part of me is intigued by the whole thing. I wanted to see how it is done. How does one create a website? How does one launch a website? How does one obtain a domain?
So I asked Roberto, the friendly webmaster of both websites, if I could learn the basics so that I could help keep the sites up to date. I explained to him that I did not have a clue, but that I did use a computer in the good old days of DOS. I even toyed with, but did not master, BASIC. "No problem," he said. I could easily learn HTML online. He referred me to a website, saying that I could progress at my own pace. My pace turned into a standstill. The website itself was overwhelming in itself. Then when he told me how to get to the HTML section, I found it just as perplexing. So many symbols for a simple entry. I'll never keep them straight.
I have Spanish to learn for our planned trip to Costa Rica. Spanish is easier than HTML. I have to complete my yearly Continuing Education Credits to keep my medical license. Medical stuff is easier to me than either Spanish or HTML. Even in a semi-retired state, I have just so much time to sit in front of a computer screen learning stuff. So unless I find "HTML for Dummies", I think my pseudo webmaster days are over.
