    The book given out in class looks excellent. Thanks....

    P.S. "Enter" in this text box means go to the next line whereas "Enter" in a reply seems to mean "Send" or "Post"...
    not fair....

    I am not sure how this message base works. Does there seems to be several threads going or is it my imagination?

    Problem: I worked diligently on the videos but now cannot seem to know how to get back to them.

    A bit confused. 1) I see a list of 9 chapters for a course listed as "Learn The Basics of Web Development: Free HTML Course" yet the discussion was for 5 nights. 2) Is there little or no conversation here or am I somehow disconnected?

    OAPN: It looks as if the location for the next meeting is not established. I can look into reserving a room at CCSU if it helps.

    • Steve A.

      I will look into what it takes to set up a room, then we can decide...

    • Steve A.

      Can you send me a copy of the demo file you created last week?

      March 31, 2013
