Bryan,

Mentor is a bit of a haul for me, *but* if there were enough folks over there, I would be willing to come and conduct.

As far as the classes, I have to get the titles. The ones for the mysql portion I know the books but forget the title. They would focus on getting certified. Since I know mysql so well I think I can train folks for that no problem, even as a beginner class driving *towards* certification.

I'm not as thorough with my PHP but know it enough to conduct beginner classes and push folks towards intermediate status *(but not certification). So I havent fully decided on the PHP book set yet.

Again the more I *and everyone knows* via the message list, the more we can collaborate and work to help each other. A good example is you stating you are on the east side. That might draw out some east siders who would have avoided a class in Fairview Park.

I am interested, I was hoping that it was in the afternoon though, I would offer our facilities here in Mentor no charge if people thought they wanted to drive out this way.  It is right off Rt. 2.  What books were you thinking for the class?

Ron,

I have gotten a lot of interest, mostly in private emails. i am trying to drum up more interest via the public email. That way all of yall can talk together about the arrangements and we can all work together to meet each others needs.

I am also goin to try to see if we can find a place to meet that does not charge a fee. As mentioned in the original email, if we have a non-profit set up, we can do it through the library. Also some time next year I might have a space for some other activites (of a spiritual nature) that I am organizing. So if we have that space, the web meetup would get to meet there. But for now, it's going to cost us, depending on how many folks end up coming.

Most seem to want Saturday Morning. So it means hauling myself out of bed:) Next is just solidifying all those that truly can make it and getting the books to everyone. And finally setting up the exact schedule. (I might start the basics with some websites instead of books just to make it less costly for everyone)

So does anyone else have comments? thoughts? desiers? Please respond to the group if you care to. Otherwise I'm find with personal emails.

Kind Regards,
Aoirthoir.

I use dreamhost myself and am really satisfied with them. First year is 120? I think a year. Then 9.95 a month. Now folks get unlimited storage (cause no one really uses that much I think) and I *think* unlimited bandwidth.

The only thing is you dont get root access. And as a result if you wanted to run things like triggers in MySQL you cannot due to the version of mysql they are running. But for an extra fee they have virtual machines and I think you get root access with those. The root server and mysql virtual machines are separate so I dont know if it caries over, and I've not tested either.

Additionally it is fully GNU/Linux, debian install. And you do get the right to compile programs to your own directory. So for instance I've install OpenCobol to my OpenCobol user, which then anyone on my host can use as long as they point the path and libpath in the right direction, to compile Cobol programs with OpenCobol. So that was a plus for me.

Disclaimer: I *do* get credit if folks sign up for dreamhost, but only if they use a specific code for me, and I've never actually signed someone up with it.

Kevin,
thank you for the suggestion.
Are you a user of justhost and recommending it because you know it works well or did you just do a search and find them.
I thought they looked good too when i did a web search initially to leave 1 and 1 hosting.
I do not recall why exactly i thought at that time after contacting them that they didnt actually do what i wanted to do....guess i should have created better or some notes on what i was exactly looking for and finding.
I distinctly remember being excited about their pricing but something made me not contract with them and i think i got a sales call from MYSQL (the company) while i was looking at the justhost details and again for some undocumented reason by me i was convinced justhost didnt do what i wanted/needed, but why and what that was i cant answer right now.
Anyway if you use justhost and have had a great experience with them please let me know, who knows i still have to move some other sites maybe i will spread them out so i can experiment with hosts supporting features.
I do remember liking justhosts prices but for some reason i think the chat person told me i needed to be on a dedicated server and buko bucks---no they outsource dedicated. $150/mo or more.
anyway thanks
Ron

Why not try justhost.com? It's rated top 3 on a number or hosting ranking sites. You can create users with different privileges on MySQL. It's $4.95 /month on 2 year plans, unlimited storage and bandwidth. I'm not in anyway associated with justhost.com.

I am not sure if i got this because i signed up already or not but i am interested in both php and mysql courses. or study groups.
so let me me what and when, saturday mornings are best for me too.
Ron Finnerty
btw. i just found a good web host for mysql, my old host 1 and 1 did not allow me to create users with different privelage levels. only one user account for all the databases. NO JOKE. so i am dumping them.to go to TopHostingCenter.com
$6.95/mo w/24month contract. sorry for the ad but i had to get this host from MYSQL the company as one of their partners to get the privelage user issue, without going to a dedictated host cost. I was shocked when my php scripts didn't run because of this user issue.
so i need to learn more mysql and php badly.i 've been buying books like candy so more is no problem and weekly rent dues shouldn't be either if they are reasonable.
so let me know I am in.

Aoirthoir,

Please add me to the list for both the PHP and MySQL courses.

Morning would be preferable. Books and course costs are not a problem for me.

Thanks for putting this together.

Best regards,

We're putting together two intro courses (for complete programming beginners). One will be for PHP and the other will be for MySQL. (We'll be discussing these at the meet and greet, already scheduled.).

In ordeer to better plan these I need to know several things:

1. How many of you want the MySQL training?

2. How many of you want the PHP training?

3. These classes will be on Saturdays, so is Morning or Afternoon best for you?

4. Anyone coming has to commit to being there at the start of the course (this prevents me from having to explain to walk ins the very basics every single meetup, we had that happening last time we ran a study group and wish to avoid it entirely.)

5. Are you able to afford to purchase (on your own from Amazon, Barnes and Nobles or anyplace else) about $100 or so in books?

6. If we have enough persons wishing to join I'll have to conduct the classes at Gemini Center in Fairview Park. On Saturdays the rental is 35/hr. The classes will be 2 hours each so that's 70 dollars. Which means about 7 dollars per persons we'd have to split (at 10 persons) to cover the rental cost. If more persons come the cost will be reduced per person. (Coming the next year we'll be having an NGO. So we'll be able to use the Library's facilities as that's a requirement, in which case the cost will be back to zero again.)

So just respond to this email if you are interested, or contact me directly.

Kind Regards
