If you think that "surfing the net" is addictive, wait 'til you make your own web site! Once you understand the basics, "building" pages becomes as addictive as putting puzzles together....you never want it to end and sometimes it doesn't end in the evening at bedtime...sometimes not til you see the sun rising on the eastern horizon in the morning and your eyes are being manually held open as you say to yourself, "Let me just fix this one little thing, then I'll go to bed and finish tomorrow." Problem is, tomorrow is here and you're still at it.
|SOME RAMDOM THOUGHTS:|
The 50-50-90 rule:
Anytime you have a 50-50
chance of getting something
right, there's a
90% probability you'll
get it wrong.
cuz they're 'random' they
change with each click of
the 'Refresh' buttom...try it
The Pages on my web site are highly personal, pages marking the passing of events.... recent graduations, births, holiday greetings....about a dear friend, and a most important thing in my life, that being the Baha'i Faith. Each page I've created becomes a favourite and stays a favourite even after the next and then the next and then the next page is done.
Frustration level runs high at times as you search for that one little html tag that messes the whole works up, and I'm always learning more and more with each page I make. Below I've added some links that I have used to gather backgrounds, music, html help and a few little tricks for some fun additions to my pages.
I would like to add a small note here and extend my gratitude to a dear internet friend, Olenfat, who got me started on all of this. Olenfat lives in the Ohio hills of the United States and, alas, seems to have disappeared from our meeting place on ICQ, but remains a star in a special place with me. His original work to create my "home page", the one celebrating my nickname, "Auntie Mame", and his help and willingness to share his knowledge after that initial work was completed is what got me started on all of this.
If, by chance, you read this, Olenfat....remember the night you sent me the Life magazine cover with Auntie Mame on it, suggesting I make a tiled desk top with it? I begged for your help because I knew not much more than how to turn on this machine. "Well," said you, "First create two new file folders...." I laughed and laughed, thinking to myself, "Surely he jests. How am I to accomplish such a difficult task?"
Well, you and I, and the rest of the world, knows very well that something is only difficult until one knows how....and step by agonizing step, through messages on ICQ, Olenfat had me create those file folders.....and, ever since and forever more, the cover of Life magazine celebrating Rosalind Russell starring in the film "Auntie Mame" has remained on my desk top. He pushed and badgered me 'to grow' and has given me a fun, thoughtful and lasting occupation....keeping me inside and warm in winter....lol.
....great zoom-in and zoom-out feature
This is the fun everyone is talking about...The GoogleWhacker !!!. I can't explain it, you must try it for yourself. I have heard it can be addictive ;)
