Acer Predator 21X review
OK ... so lesson 1. I sat down to learn.
Now I am a reasonably bright bloke, but when I tried to write the scripts to answer the first exercises / homework set out I realised that I was struggling.
However, I still read the rest of the book, and I feel that I can sort of 'read' a script even though I can't write them. This is a useful skill because it means that when you cut and paste a script from the internet you can change the variables and understand what you are doing - well with a few goes anyway!.
Good luck with it!
Its not really worth using it...
All the code is mostly on the web now anyway, or can be made using Web authoring programs.
I am using FrontPage 98
It hasn't been that great. It frequently locks up for a time and then unfreezes. Any ideas why?
is the version that most of us would rather forget. If you can, try to make your budget stretch to the newest version - FP2003, out in a couple of weeks. It's the best yet, by far, and will transform the way you work with FP.
lol @ powertool , did a small intro to Java at college and I`m convinced there is voodoo or something involved.......:=)
What does PHP mean, what are its uses and where can one learn it online?
I think in its initial incarnation it was called "Personal Home Page" but as it became more powerful I think it became referred to as Hypertext Preprocessor, methinks the best place to start would be click here though the little I have learned (how to write form mailing scripts+insert and retrieve data from MySQL database) I have learned from books as I much prefer books to sitting trawling through tutorials on dial up etc, not to mention with a book I can lie upside down on the sofa etc....:)
books I found helpul were "PHP and MySQL for Dummies" and IMO an excellent book "Beginning PHP" by Wrox Press
Yes, FP95 is a little too outdated.
I would buy on of the following:-
AceHTML: A great freebe web designer.
Namo web editor: One of the cheapest professional webpage designers and has lots of great features as well as vaidation of all sites created, it is worth is for £45
Frontpage 2003: Good, and also very expensive, but it can turn out good results if used correctly.
Dreamweaver: The one pros use. This is by far the best, but not easy to use. It is also very expensive just for a CD.
