Html, shtml....

One of the assignments is to post something about technology. In typical me fashion, I don't know if the previous post about Flutter counts, so here is another one to make sure I get full credit. (Can you tell I come from a family full of teachers?) Yes, I know there is no grade to this, but, heck, even my blood type is A+. (Add that to your list, Chris, of things you are learning about SPL folks!)

Anyway, technology. I suffered a loss recently, and one of the folks in the support group I found talked about creating a website as a memorial. Hmm, I thought. I could probably do that. I took a HTML class in grad school! Then I remembered that, unlike all my other classes, I was glad that Florida State was adamant that everyone work in groups. Why, you ask? Because I had an honest-to-God website developer in my group! Our group assignment (to create a website for a fictitious businessman) turned out to be the best of the class, and I got an A for learning hardly anything about HTML. Nice for my GPA, but now what do I do?

So I googled "free websites" just for the heck of it, and I landed on weebly.com. It is quite easy to set up a very basic site--even the mourning doves in my backyard could do it. (and why not because the nest they are trying to make is never going to work!) I don't know how much time I will spend on it, but it is nice to know I have the opportunity to do something like that without spending hours learning programming first.


  1. Why is Florida State emphasized? Just because Burt Reynolds attended doesn't mean a whole lot.

  2. You know that I had to sign an oath to never disparage Mr. Reynolds. But perhaps you'd prefer talking about Faye Dunaway, Paul Gleason, Nancy Kulp, Robert Urich, or Casper Van Dien instead?

  3. I'm A+ too, and glad I'm not the only one who gloats that "A+ is in my blood!" :)
