You’re saying, “Roger, you don’t even play an instrument.” You are correct. Neither do I play an literal musical instrument, to fit with the theme, nor do I play a figurative programming instrument. I guess when I started the Monkey Exhibit way back when, I had to…manipulate my own HTML code, but that’s not quite the same. As you can imagine, it was way over my head.
I saw something that could be really cool for website building, but I can’t even tell you the name of it. For some reason my brain wants to say Expressions 2008, but a search for that term didn’t come up with anything familiar. Maybe if I had seen the physical box of the product then I would remember.
After that cool product, my brain rejected any more new information and I am left with a half hour blank spot in my memory. What did I do? What did I hear? Did the government erase some top secret information from my memory that was relayed to us? I think I might have been drooling.
Anyway, plans for the near future are to 1) search for the free Visual Basic (VB) tutorial, 2) bookmark the VB tutorial, 3) watch the 6 hour VB tour so that I can pretend, in a pinch, that I understand something about VB. Maybe, just maybe I can move up in the world from a respectable, if lower paying, position to a geek desk job where I’m not responsible for the employment well-being of multiple other people and I can say what I want when I want.
