How a newbie can build a website in two days

“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?

> 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!



    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.



    My son is dyslexic!!

    It was my friend’s anxious voice  over the phone.

    I allowed her to pour out her worries. Finally, when it was my turn to speak, I told her: Einsten was dyslexic too.  Einstein dropped out of High School and didn’t talk until he was 4 ..she yelled “what?!!!”

    For a moment, my mind drifted to an image of A. Einstein which I kept since high school. Oh those were my turbulent years! I hated going to school.

    Anyway, let’s not talk about myself now…let me think of Einstein.

    He is everybody’s model of a genius, may have only had an I.Q of 160 comparing to maximum I.Q’s of 200 or 210. His curiosity probably paid a huge deal in his achievements. Einstein said many times that he did not have anything special except for his imagination.

    He once remarked ‘Imagination is better then knowledge’.  Even Thomas Edison confirmed that: genius is  1% inspiration, 99% perspiration.  Those famous people were my alibi from not attending my classes 🙂

    Albert Einstein belongs to my list of supreme minds. A great thinker who believes in mystery, in love, in a Divine being, in cosmic religious sense, in peace, and most in simplicity and humour.
