Hi. I graduated from UC Irvine in 1983 with a BS in Information and Computer Science. I had intended to become a full time programmer but i ended up as a freelancer.
And that very quickly developed into less programming and more configuring existing software, and eventually into computer troubleshooting. And that doesn't pay much anymore, so much cheaper to buy a new system whenever there's a problem.
So last year i decided to get into web design. I'd already made a lot of simple static pages, but now i want to do the sophisticated stuff. Which means learning html, css, java, sql and php. I'm taking a few classes at my local junior college but with my background i should be able to learn new languages without a lot of formal instruction. Which is why i'm here.
As for my other interests, i'm an rpg player, i read a lot of scifi and fantasy, i like history, religion, chocolate, tea, dr pepper, and cats.
Also, i still have not gotten my confirmation email so i can post on the class site. Does anyone know how long that's supposed to take?
