    Also, chris, where did you get the server for this site from, and how much did it cost?

    www.w3schools.com has great information and tutorials that allow you to try things out as you learn them. It's a great site.

    w3schools has great css info. Haven't used them for other things.

    I lease two servers from Ev1servers.net (formerly rackshack).

    One server hosts this site, my sword site, and some of my other more recent sites. It also hosts some client sites.

    The other server hosts my other sites.

    If/when I get a third server it'll likely be for my literature site, as that site uses more resources than all the others (combined perhaps).

    I agree, w3schools.com has some great tutorials. Uncluttered and to the point.

    wrigh_g you're trying to learn a lot there!

    Agreed! Wrigh_g, you're not going to be able to learn all those at once. If you really want to get good at programming, I recommend starting off with Java or C++. They'll give you a good understanding of programming concepts. But if you want to get right on with web stuff, just learn PHP and you'll be up and running in no time.

    Learn PHP... It will be most helpful.

    I also want to learn more languages and learn PHP throughly (I think I must have skipped loads...)

    I hear that the book "thinking in Java" is supposed to be quite good for getting a good grounding in programming concepts. I haven't read it myself yet, but keep intending to. You can download it freely off the web.

    In my opinion Java is hard to learn. I recently got a book and I am struggling a little.
    Don't you just love free internet games ?

    It is difficult to start with. But once you get your head around it, it becomes so much easier.
