“Are you a web designer ?  I like your site at Multiply and downelink”.

“No, I’m not”!  was my sheepish reply.

I do not have any scholastic background in computer. I hate school, remember?

So, what did I do? Simple…  I only wanted to build a website.

I believe in two words: will and action.If you have these two weapons, you can build anything – website, a relationship and dreams …

Ok, so you are a newbie like me. Let’s see what you have to startyour website.

  • Do you have some basic computer skills?

What skills?

>well..like knowing what a “mouse” is, how to use it – pointing, clicking, double clicking

>keyboards – do you know how to type even with two fingers? No? ok, one finger is sufficient or your toes.

> opening and closing software files – oopps why are you shaking your head? You don’t know what “software files” are?

Ok, we have to be familiar with those geek’s jargon.

When they say “hardware” it refers to the physical (touchable) computer itself, the keyboard, disk drive, monitor, etc.

“Software” on the other hand is made up of the instructions that tell the hardware what to do. One familiar example is Microsoft word…

> accessing a CD/DVD rom , locating a saved file, copying and pasting files and txts

  • Do you have an access to a personal computer?
  • Do you have an access to the internet?
  • Do you have a place on the world wide web to publish your page? you can try some free sites like geocites, angelfire, wordpress, etc

  •  It is already 1,10 am here in Italy and I need to go to sleep now  or else, my eye-bags will bloat like a frog’s eyes when I’ll go to work tomorrow.

    Buona notte! anzi, buon giorno perche ¨ già  mattina presto!

      COMPUTER QUOTES

    Computers must be female.  No one but the creator understands their internal logic.  The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else.  The message “Bad command or file name” is about as informative as, “If you don’t know why I’m mad at you, then I’m certainly not going to tell you.”  Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for later retrieval. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.  ~Author Unknown

    Computers must be male.  As soon as you commit to one you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have obtained a better model.  In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on.  Big power surges knock them out for the rest of the day.  ~Author Unknown

    Users /nm./: collective term for those who use computers. Users are divided into three types: novice, intermediate and expert.


    Novice Users:
    people who are afraid that simply pressing a key might break their computer.
    Intermediate Users: people who don’t know how to fix their computer after they’ve just pressed a key that broke it.


    Expert Users
    : people who break other people’s computers.
