Another blindingly beautiful day called for a walk into town to see if the local library had reopened its doors to people thirsting for knowledge on such thrilling subjects as CSS and PHP. Joy, it was, indeed, open again so no wasted five mile walk. Actually, it was such a lovely day that it wouldn’t have been wasted anyway; it was just a good excuse along, that is, with needing some ingredients to make a prawn Thai green curry.
Everything had moved around, of course, and muggins here had chosen not to install his contact lenses so I couldn’t see much. Fortunately, Carol was with me and managed to play guide person and steer me to the correct section. At close quarters I was not visually challenged and managed to locate a useful looking book on CSS, DHTML and AJAX, which might prove interesting. Sad person that I am, I also found an intriguing little number called “The Rough Guide to Blogging” by Jonathan Yang. This has already introduced me to a client blogging program, w.bloggar, enabling offline blogs to be written and uploaded later. That could be useful on the road, saving entries until a friendly wi-fi providing Starbucks can be found. I’m trying it out by writing this using it.
Alas, apparently no publication on PHP but I did manage to use their excellent (i.e. simple) computer system to find an appropriate volume at another Bedfordshire library and reserve it for collection at Leighton Buzzard. Terrific!
Now, where’s that green curry? 🙂
