I’m humbled by what a few months (ok, 13 or so) out of the game can do to a guy. I have been so busy over the last year or so that I have let my family’s website fall into severe disuse. I haven’t updated it in quite a while. So I went back there the other day, only to see that the weeds have grown all around it (some vicious spammer filled the guestbook–yes, we had a guestbook, that stupid little feature–with advertising), the links are up on blocks, and the pictures are all rusting out. I’m in need of something nearing a complete overhaul.
Part of my problem is that I created it in FrontPage. Yes. FrontPage.
I’ve been working to learn Macromedia Studio MX lately. I picked up a copy about a year ago, in hopes of getting things worked out then. Something about a “path” and “good intentions” is coming to mind right now.
Anyway, my hope is to create something that is a little more than just boring HTML, something a little more interesting than a static website.
This is where you may come in. If you should read this and feel like helping this pastor out, I ask for your assistance. What free and accessible resources are you aware of that would help a guy learn at least enough to be dangerous in the realms of ASP, ASP.net, PHP, or the like? This may be a tall request. I’m a little bit hindered by the fact that I don’t quite know what I’d like to do, just that I would like the knowledge to be able to think about what is possible and go from there.
