    I use the name omnimancer because I am a sort of polymath on a very much smaller scale than famous ones like Da Vinci. So far I have worked in such diverse trades as construction, radio broadcasting, metals sales, insurance, television production, film set making, construction, computer applications programming, technical writing, acting, short order cook, chauffeur, life guard, ski patroller, and more. I have a couple of degrees, a certificate or few, licensed as a securities trader, insurance sales, real estate in two countries, auctioneer, and a registered artisan in France, plus parts of an MBA before I dropped out. And I once had a controlling interest in a dot bomb ISP.
    I even once sold vacuum cleaners door to door.
    Naturally I have a few flaws: dyslexic, ADD, and bi-polar among them.
    So one more time I am a noob.
    but nuanced.

    Thanx for the replies. Due to the extreme shortage of electrons on the grid, as evidenced by the high price of electricity, I will try to keep my posts brief and to the point.

    You'd have to have ADD to go through all of those careers. Damn, dude. Is your resume the dictionary?

    I seriously don't know whether to be impressed or a little frightened at the job list. And I thought I've done a lot...paper boy, umpire, carny ride operator (I was 15 and it was the only job available), salesman for three companies, university donation solicitor (before I realized what a scam that it was), IT professional, stock boy, electronics store manager, lockbox associate, and now what I do. My list looks so puny and small compared to yours, though.

    Actually the resume is longer but I was saving space.
    And not all those jobs resulted in what most people would see as success.
    With such a variable mood I am not the ideal employee, nor did I suffer fools gladly.
    Neither did they suffer me gladly.
    There was a lot of suffer involved some of the time.

    What I am really here to do is learn to make a web site where I can post some how-to stuff on things I have learned, as well as do a blog where I can pontificate to the world in general about things they need to do to fix this sorry mess of a planet. Using simple text and either photos or video. And have the blog mostly text.

    So where do I start? I know just enough HTML to use caps on eBay, and enough about SQL to know what the letters mean. lol

    Well, you can start at w3schools.com, where you can learn HTML and CSS. From there on, you can either learn javascript, PHP and MySQL, or use a CMS, like Wordpress.
