I’m so dizzy

HTML is fairly simple to understand. Java, Perl, and cgi you need a lot of caffiene and patience to understand.

I’m in the process of redesigning my website. I’m trying to figure out how the heck to get a form to work using Perl and it’s making my head spin. Tonight I downloaded four different scripts that apparently all do the same thing but look and operate very differently. That may be my naivity shining through, but it’s the truth. Even when I do find similarities, the information is juxtaposed in different ways so that I cannot tell which side is up, whether the email is coming or going, and just who is the damn recipient!?! Where the heck do I find “$MailProgram = ‘/usr/lib/sendmail'” or (in common terms) the location of my sendmail program?

Anyhow, I’m sure I’ll sort it out sometime in the next few weeks. Look for the new redesigned Stage Domain in the next month. Depending on how bored or ambitious I am, it may get posted this weekend, broken links and all.
