Day 2: The universe lends a hand at building the websitePosted: August 15, 2013
We were walking to the supermarket and there was this little bookshop that sells books. There were books on sale, and one of them was a Haynes publishing:
Build Your Own Website by Kyle MacRae, a solid hardcover that looks reliable. I was intrigued, and had to pick that book up and browse. But the best part was when the salesperson told me it was a deal at two dollars.
I bought it. Yes, it was published in 2005, but it has everything I need to know for starters. I mean to bake apple pie, I need to preheat the oven and pick the apples, right?
I have been lugging it across the places we were to, and pouring the contents into that space between my ears, I think some call it mind, I call it Random Access Memory.
Now the most important thing there is that they have a link to a site that helps us build a website. The pages can be downloaded and worked on. I don’t much like the way the pages look, but like I said, I need to begin somewhere and the universe threw the apple into my lap, so to speak.
here is the link to the software: http://www.nvu.com
Yes I downloaded the debugged version. It seems retro but it works.
I would like very much if any of you have tried to build a web-page, and anyone can suggest other such sites.
And do let me know how the first experiment goes. I did not bake a pie the first time, I burnt it.
Well, that is it for today, tomorrow, maybe I will kick-start the actual building of the site, using the book of course.
