    Freelancing panic - help on finding work

    hello, Absolutely agree, it's quite unfair to the citizens of highly developed countries. however, if u prove yourself as a really professional specialist in your filed, u will definitely find a client who will pay you as much as you want for your work.

  4. Hello there TwoCats I'm not sure I've ever used z-indexes before for anything other than a sort of make believe website. I used to try to mimic other peeps's websites using my own markup and trying to dip in and out of resources online and offline to match what was in my mind as to how to do this without pinching the actual code for it. LOL I only ever created 2 meaningful websites — one for me and one for a friend. Though, I had to put their one to sleep a few years ago. LOL I was quite lucky with floats, as long as I didn't use a footer. I used to like nesting divs and creating 'dummy' divs to pad out my floats within those nested divs. It kind of worked most of the time, but I never really understood why. LOL Funny thing about floats is that those of us who played around with them to create layouts were, on the one hand poo-pooing the use of table-based layouts, while not realising that floats weren't meant for building layouts either. Erm, I think they were originally meant to format simple things like the flow of text (?). Anyway, these grids & flexboxes for building layouts are genuinely intriguing. I can't waits to one day dive into a few more boxes. People often say, "You gotta think outside the box". But there's no better way than working within a defined area — like a box.

    Initially to urge a lot of internet style comes you want to have some portfolios to point out. So, for that 1st you've got to try to to some domestic comes and provide your service to the end-users at a reasonable worth. If you are doing this then you may get some confidence so this might assist you plenty to urge a lot of comes. https://cmolds.com/blog/app-development/impressive-web-app-ui-answer/
  10. I am going to build an e-commerce website. Which are necessary platforms I need besides an open source such as Magento, Shopify, Prestashop ? Which open source do you recommend me ? Please explain your recommendation. I've been really impressed by magento because I've found some very useful extensions I think I want to add on my website such as One Step Checkout, Magento 2 Popup, Gift Card and completely been blown away by its diversity of extensions. What do you think about Magento ?
  11. Grid/Flex is one of the things that made me decide to pick it up again. The whole <div> and floating and position and all that drove me nuts. Was so convoluted and weird to work with. I know you can still use floats and position and such, but they don't seem so mission critical anymore to get the layout you want. I'm gonna have to use positioning with a Z-Index for the way my logo is going to be placed on the site, so there's that lol.
  12. Hi there, TwoCats — Framesets, eh? Yeah, they were a thing once, so much so I decided to tackle them before moving on to tables. I've still got something like an 'internal frameset' on my old and knackered website, but I've forgotten what they're called. LOL I really believe you should one day aim for Python, as it's the thing for game development, robotics and well, mostly everything. Though, it probably doesn't compare with the likes of Java, of which I know next to nothing about. Erm, it's going to take me a long whiles to get back into this stuff as I'm still in full-time employment. I'm thinking of hanging up me old mailbag (as I'm a postie) sometime next year, so I should maybe have a good amount of time to devote to all aspects / concepts concerning web page building. I love the idea of grids and flexbox for layouts and whatever. I've often dreamed of getting back into this stuff. I know I can do it, as I once did from framesets to table-based layouts and onto float-based layouts. I've just got to do it the next time with a little more deeper understanding than just say, dipping in and out of stuff when I need to implement it like, a bit of PHP, Flash and God knows what else. LOL Having said that, if I can leave my job with no more health issues, I'm thinking of learning another trade like carpentry and joinery. Though, I'm not sure which is more fanciful wishful thinking; getting back into web page building or getting into building stuff. LOL

  17. Framesets! Wow I forgot about those. 2+ html pages displayed at once! Fancy stuff. Getting nostalgic here lol.
  18. Hi, Amit, That's cool. I'm interested in learning some PHP and DB stuff. Maybe even working with flat files. DBs are a bit spooky to me, but I'm sure very useful to know. I'm very into game design - I'm more on the creative side, though. I never looked into flash game creation, though. I've looked more at stuff like Unreal Engine, or Unity, or even Godot whose language is based on Python. I'll probably get going with one of the courses next week, when payday comes around. Thanks!

    Hey, thanks! I'd like to think I will be blasting a path through these forums, but I know while I'm still employed as a postman I gets very little time these days to pick up on what I left back in the days of table-based (steam powered) websites. LOL It's good to be back, Stef.
  20. Hello TwoCats All my experience went down the pan years ago — silly mail job. Anyway, like you, I've paid for one of Stefan's courses hoping to resurrect my passion of web page building. When I first started, I did it not for a job, but for wanting to show everyone how great my Real Basic programming skills were. Er, which were pretty awful. I realised I wanted to get further into framesets, tables and other cool things which are far from cool these days. LOL I reckon you've got the same passion as I once had. Only it's got more revs than mine ever had. Good luck with whatever comes your way.

    Welcome back!
  22. Hi there fellow killers. I'm not really new here. I've just been away an awful long time and have forgotten mostly everything about web page building. 😕 I'm an old dog wanting to re-learn new tricks. Trouble is, I'm still in full time employment which has over many years been getting steadily harder to follow my passion of moving markup around, mostly to see what it does. Those days are over, as they are regarded as old school ideas. So I'm here to re-learn. But I won't be able to progress quickly as my job is even more demanding these days. I'm hoping to retire around about this time next year, mostly to get trained up doing something else — though, not necessarily anything to do with web page building. I just basically want to get out of my silly job before it finally kills me. LOL
  23. Thanks! Good luck! I'm sure you will do well.

    online dating

    How do you rate visiting a modern generation of online dating sites instead of live communication? I see this as both bad and good. The bad thing is that personal communication is depreciating and people rarely experience the emotions that you experience when you go up to the cafe and meet a girl. On the positive side, I consider the fact that similar online platforms, such as https://hookupmasters.com/adult-webcam-sites/flirt4free-review/ where you can read flirt 4 free review, help closed and insecure people find their personal happiness.

    It seems to me that ordering written works like essays is not a good idea. There is a high probability that your order will be executed at a low level.

    online dating

    Interesting topic for research. I believe that online dating is a positive process in modern society, as it helps more insecure people to find a life partner.

    online dating

    Hi guys. Sorry for the offtopic and for a very strange topic, but I have a question for you. The fact is that in college I study the issue of generation of millenials and how they build relationships in the 21st century. I wanted to ask you how effective dating is on the Internet? Who using online dating sites found his wife for example? I would be very grateful for the answers.
