Coding Goddess, at your service!

8 Sep

Anyone up for a little light reading?  I found these books when I was cleaning out the basement, and placed them on my Shelf of Honor (right next to my ethics guide & favorite behavior analysis books):

Oh yeah, baby!  That’s Practical HTML 4 & LINUX in a Nutshell… two books that a year ago I would have used to prop a wobbly table leg, now on the Shelf of Honor – reserved for only the Most Useful Books.  To celebrate being the proud owner of these computer books, which my husband promises are riveting, I decided to write my first ever HTML code.  You’ll notice, if you browse around, that my “Home” page has been changing a bit lately…  Guess why!  hehehe… YUP, it’s because I’m messing with the code, which I wrote with my own ten little fingers!  Check it out! That page is made up entirely of 1s and 0s, which are made up entirely of the 23 lines of code I wrote ALL BY  MYSELF*!

I am a coding goddess! I can now flip between the “Visual” tab and the “HTML” tab on my web page builder without breaking into a cold sweat!  I am so full of linuxy, html-y knowledge that I can now take artsy pictures of my mouse:

See?  How artsy is THAT?  If I were the me of yesterday, the me without computery knowledge, I never could have pulled off a picture like this!**

I am a Warm and Fuzzy, Happy, Coding Goddess, at your service (as long as you want me to code something that looks exactly like my home page)!     })i({

*By “all by myself” the author actually means, “with significant support from my husband, who spins code like nobody’s business.”

**NOTE:  Knowing how to write HTML code and/or use Linux has absolutely nothing to do with taking artsy pictures of a mouse.  Also, someone should clean that mouse.  Just look at that dust!  Disgusting.

    Chibi!!! I’m so proud of you!!! You made your first Hello World code, and you made tables and images and center tags and even some font sizes and colors! Next you can get tricky by splitting the lower table row into two columns and start using some div tags! Then we can start you on some PHP and you can put some forms in there and run validations on the posted data using regular expressions! You’ll be a computer geek before you know it!

    So, I watched the movie 23 last night and am now freaking out about having written 23 lines of code.
