Nomad - Ivy

(no subject)

Today I sat down to try and design an HTML page from scratch. Using CSS. I know very little about either, other than what I've learned from modifying other people's templates -- but I thought the program I downloaded, TopStyle, might help with the tricky bits. However, after three hours of poking around the program and its associated help files, I have come to the conclusion that I know nothing useful whatsoever. And no, it's not the program.* It's me.

I need to take some courses. I have no time to take courses. There are no courses offered in town anyway, that I know of. But I hate not being able to figure this out on my own, and I know it's the kind of thing that's going to nag at me until I figure out some way to teach myself.

This attack of suckiness has been brought to you by a busy weekend and not enough of the letter Z.

*Yes, I have tried Dreamweaver. I loathed it. All it ever did was tell me I was doing everything wrong, and then make it impossible for me to do anything right. Rrrrrgh.
