    Campaigns, Learning, & Coding, oh my.

    I think I've finally figured out how to make the template work for my campaign site, after much angst over such questions as "what is this", "how does it work", "why do I have to learn PHP and CSS to build a website", and more. Due to not having the time to wait for anyone to have free time to do it for me, I've been forced to do it myself. Spring is an exceedingly busy time for most people, and this spring has brought graduations, moving, marriages and more to those around me. Like I've always said, if something needs done immediately, the only person you can really rely on to get it done is yourself, and you'd better make the time to do it in. Needless to say, I'm learning new computer languages again. *chuckle* The only problem is that my server is having some sort of trouble translating the template I've modified, and the customer service for my exceedingly inexpensive hosting company is nigh-on nonexistent, so I can't really rely on them to help me fix things.

    Kind of on my own, and without the basic knowledges needed to to the job, but as long as I have the internet and my beloved Google, I can learn anything. I've done what was declared impossible before, and I'm on my way to doing it again. Three days to a website, with three new programming languages I know very little about, and major editing in store. Let's see how it goes, shall we? Of course, getting the content in there properly so I can go live with the site and show it off to you will be another matter entirely, but hopefully that will only add another two days or so to the projected time line. *chuckle*

    Wish me luck!

    I wish you lots of luck. I've never really been into programming language. The WYSIWYG editors are my best friends. *grin*
