Hello world!

Hello world!

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

That is the opening statement that comes with the blogging software. Those two words were the outcome of the first exercise in learning the C programming language. I never really became much of software guy and gladly depend on those that are to bring such richness to our lives via the web and in almost any modern device that consumes electrons. Special thanks to the organization that produces WordPress. While it still takes perseverance, a little luck and support, this software is really a great step forward for the non or semi-techie like myself. You can do it too. Go to http://wordpress.org/ and read all about it. I also found some video tutorials on the web that were quite helpful. Some of the instruction is for a particular web host and that was a bit of a problem but in general it is quite good and certainly inspired me to give it a go. You can see if it works for you. Go to http://becomeablogger.com/index.html Today has been quite an adventure and I wouldn’t have gotten the blog up and running without excellent support from a couple of guys at the outfit that is hosting it. My hat is off to Ryan and Brandon at DreamHost.com.

Well that’s it for the first post. I still have a bunch of work to do to figure this stuff out. One of those is to figure out how to get the picture below at the top of the site. So wish me luck.

    Grazie per i tuoi commenti. I figured out how to make the photos a bit larger. I hope that you like them even more this way.
