Today I have climbed a mountain. Not the ones in Washington State that Doc climbed last weekend, but I do feel like celebrating. I managed to post a website for our missions endeavor. No big deal for all of you techno-crats, but for me it was a huge accomplishment.
I had no idea what I was doing and had to teach myself the program I was using, a little of html, and how to post. It's something I've been working on for more than six months. Not six months straight, but on and off during that time.
It comes with great satisfaction. It's the kind of feeling you get when you solve a really complex problem, or something is beyond your understanding, bing the light goes on and you get it. Since I'm not a computer geek (I say this affectionately as my dad and brother are), I feel an intense, almost high, when I'm able to restore order to the computer universe. Today, I have that same feeling. A little shocked that I managed to pull this off, but satisfied that however disorganized and filled with bad code it is, I did it.
Feel free to go look and gently tell me what's wrong. It's got to have major problems, but today I can bask in completion. Tomorrow I can learn how to fix the problems, maybe talking to some of you. You'll recognize the web journal posts as I stole them from our posts here.
