What ive learnt!

Over the course of this session I have learnt a lot about how to build a web page and also the workings of other web pages and the internet itself. All the thought put into it and the code that has to be done is amazingly hard and then all the procedures to then put the web page onto the web.
Then the need to tag and what not to then get people and search engines like Google to find your page.
I have learnt all about sharing my information online, via flickr, delicious and blogger. Being able to share my information, photo's, videos and even favorite web pages is amazing.
I have also learnt a lot about Google, it is so much more then your average search engine. It helps create and save documents just like word, excel and power point, manages and receives emails under your name, translates different phrases and words into different languages, the list can go on and on.
RSS feeds is a great thing that ive learnt. It is awesome being able to go into a website and go to the raw updated information that i want to know and skip all the boring stuff ive seen before. Also helps me get onto some sites that wont load because of there aesthetics and pointless things i did not want anyway.
Using Mac computers has shown me how easy it is using them. Only ever using windows for the majority of my life and then coming here and using Macs is different but also makes the whole creating and designing thing so much easier with the use of programs such as Iweb, Fetch, Photo booth (i know not shown in this course but still is awesome). I definitely need a Mac :)
Computers in general were never my friends but in this course I have learnt to be get on a common ground with them and be civil.
I have learnt alot in this course and its kind of hard to rememeber it all in one hit.

Thanks Damian! Your Awesome!! :D

Week NINE!

What is RSS? Rich Site Summary

What is it used for? instead of searching each website of your interest for the updates posted you can directly view the updates only without having to view and navigate through the useless material.

How does Google Reader work? it is able to read and display saved websites updates by reading the atom and RSS feeds.

Week 8! :D

What is FTP (File transfer Protocol) ? is a standard network protocol used to copy a file from one host to another over the internet.

FTP can be used for a private password authentication or with anonymous user access.

What positives are there with FTP? a user can use a program to perform a mass upload to a server, not having to worry about repeatedly having to re browse for files and re-upload them using one form.

What are some of the negatives/ risks? an FTP server still requires an FTP client to use, and the use of one would be particularly cumbersome to those who just wanted to upload a picture or two.

Week 7 Tasks of awesomeness

What advantages you see in using CSS?
Flexibility, Separation of Content from Presentation, Site-wide consistency, Bandwidth and Page reformatting

What can be changed using Templates?
colour, words basically anything that you need or want to change on a website

What cannot be changed using the Template options?
Most CSS can not change certain texts and fonts

Why is accessibility worth considering in web page design?
because you are about to change information on a CSS HTML template and change certain places of the website without retyping or changing more of the website then wanted.
