    Started Applescript on my old PPC 5200CD. Then learned C++ and Realbasic on crappy computers at school.

    Learned HTML and JAVA on my G3.

    I know some BASIC and learned how to write DOS programs in C++. I taught myself HTML and am now learning Object Oriented C so I can write Coca apps. :D

    I started my web site about 7 years ago on my dad's PowerMac 6100/66. Then I moved on to my mom's Performa 5215CD. Then on to my iMac (the first computer that I actually owned), then on to my G4 400 that I use now. With my website came familiarity with html code. To this day I still hate hand coding. I like using graphical editors with subtle hand coding to tweak things a bit.

    I first programmed in Basic and C++ on these crappy PCs with Turbo buttons at my local Junior College.

    Currently I'm learning PHP and MySQL. I like PHP a lot. If you know C++ and html then PHP is extremely easy.

    Hand Coding

    I like hand coding in HTML, it gives me more control. What I usually do is WYSIWYG in Pagemill for tables and frames, and then use a hand coder to clean it up and do pictures and titles. WYSIWYG is too messy for people who want to see how you did something.

    Re: Mac II

    BTW, I got a message from Apple's Dev Depot this am, they're offering V2 of Codewarrior for beginners for $39.95 if you preorder. I don't have the link any more, unfortunately...
