HTML by Hand!

Here is my handwritten copy of an HTML page in code.

Since I've coded before, I was familiar enough with code that it only took me one try to do this.

I hope you can see it, I had to take the picture using my Google tablet, while holding it upside down--it's a good camera, it's just front facing, so I have to turn it around and it's hard to see if I have it lined up properly and there's enough light, etc.  But enough about my technical problems, here's the picture:

Attempt # 2:  After I got this all uploaded and everything, I realized it was unreadable.  So here's my second try:

Writing the code wasn't really a problem, making sure I printed it big enough turned out to be the problem.

Hello World!!!

So here I am with a fresh new blog. The purpose of this particular blog is to document the learning process over on P2PU, especially, in this case, the "Introduce Yourself" module in their School of Webcraft.

Now, I actually already have a website, but I'm always looking for ways to add to my admittedly rudimentary knowledge of HTML and other web building technologies.  I've been tinkering off and on with websites since about 1998, but I'm definitely no expert, and I know my knowledge has gone horribly out of date, what with the advent of HTML 5 and such.

So I'll be using this to help me out with my P2PU work, and probably after I'll use it to just generally gab about web tech and such.  Web tech from a tinkerer's perspective.
