[Lvlug] The big chainsaw to all my windows boxes
Thu, 05 Apr 2001 09:56:28 -0400
I agree, that the more exposure to different environments the better. Unfortunately, this is not a two way street. The majority of people never get exposed to anything beyond Windows, maybe Mac, but that is not always the case. Makes me almost regret helping to push Mac out of the district in favor of Windows (one platform, less problems proposition).
My biggest gripe is that a web page class is not learning html, but how to use a wysiwyg application to create web pages.
The metascript is metatags.
I saw this page that looked all cockeyed. Nothing was centered properly; words were skewed from the icons they went with. I viewed the script and FP had put in line after line of   to do all the formatting. Needless to say, after about 10 minutes of staring at the script to figure out what some of the other tags were doing, I was able to redo the page using a table. The result was a much nicer presentation and understandable script.

My kids get exposed to Macs at school.
Linux and Win9x and Win2k at home.
They should grow up knowing there is more than one way to run a computer.
I just wish I could expose them to a T3 line at home!
I would be interested in hosting another meeting at my house but I lost my IDSL when Northpoint went belly up.
SECTV says in 1 month I should have a bidirectional cable modem. I'm sure I can count on that promise!

I just like the way it tells you that you messed up when you hit the reset button and Windows runs scandisk on restart. It never thinks that maybe you didn't shut it down incorrectly; that maybe you *had* to because it locked up!
