Lesson 7: Conversations with Jeri:
Prologue to Lesson 8


3/29 Lehua to Jeri:

>>definitely Blue is my favorite color<<

Well, you may have noticed that the Easter Bunny left a few droppings in your basket. When you are ready to resume, we will have a play session.

Love & hugs,
  Lehua


3/30, Jeri to Glenda:

Well, right now I'm working on getting a Web page up and running which will do more for our tree. I knew the tree here would be temporary due to the AZ sun fading the names and paint right off the ornaments. Plus the tree is growing like crazy and I have to be careful not to hang the ornaments too tight to hurt it. Lehua has been coaching me a lesson at a time and it's coming along tremendously, it's going to be great!!!!! TEACH is making me do it all by myself (VBG)!!!

Love,
Jeri


3/30, Gene to Jeri:

My page is on hold. I built a few pages for our company...specifically the engineering department. Just a suggestion as they wanted to know how to get out the results of the reliability studies. I suggested that they put it on our intranet and I built about 6 or seven interrelated pages.

I am hesitant about mentioning another use for my web page because you and "teach" will beat me up until I do it. So I won't.

I am very proud of your progress. Neat stuff, isn't it? I can't wait until you post it. At some point soon, you could put up the under construction sign and post it to the web. Lehua is a great teacher. Very complete and patient and organized. What a great teacher and cyberfriend.

Talk soon,
Gene


3/31, Jeri to Gene:

>>you and "teach" will beat me up until I do it. So I won't. <<

Well, I wouldn't beat you up but "teach" might keep you after school a couple nights (ggg).

>> At some point soon, you could put up the under construction sign and post it to the web<<

Oh, sure you want everyone to see my mistakes (gg). I do remember seeing different web sites with lots of "under construction" signs and now I really understand what they meant by it. I don't know if we're far enough along for that but I'm sure we will be soon.

It's so exciting to watch it slowly grow and it's just hard to believe what these little commands can do to make a web site come alive!! I always had a dream of being a programmer, gee now I at least get to see how their logic works. Now everyone can be a programmer if they wish.

>>I do remember seeing different web sites with lots of "under construction" signs<<

And that's okay, as long as the links aren't active. It major annoys me to go somewhere only to find there's no "there" there. I'd rather see a "coming soon" list, with no active links. Actually, you're very close to ready to put it up as is. It can then be groomed and expanded on an ongoing basis. At the end of today, we could install now, if you wanted.

>>it's just hard to believe what these little commands can do to make a web site come alive!!<<

YESSS! My sentiments exactly.

>>Now everyone can be a programmer if they wish<<

That was my dream for 30 years. I knew that someday "they" could get their act together, software-wise, to make this available to "real" people, and the day has finally come. I am elated.

Love & hugs,
  Lehua
