( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
My high school taught all its students HTML and we all had web pages (since most of our projects required such knowledge). My web page even went so far as to have a search engine. It consisted of a textbox that you wrote in what you wanted to search for. That emailed me. And then I emailed you back with what pages to go to.

No kidding.

So then I realized I needed to learn "CGI" so I could write a real search engine for my web site. merlyn can attest to "tecmaster" saying all the wrong things on #perl on EFnet. I got banned a couple times, mostly for asking FAQs and being generally a stupid newbie. After I got over the @array[$x]-&function() syndrome, I taught a "mini-course" (a three-day course at the end of the school year when there's no real curriculum to go over) on Perl to some of the students. Again, merlyn knows this. I was Jeff 'techmaster' Pinyan, the teaching teen perl hacker! That was 9 years ago. I grew up. Technically, my current moniker, japhy, is become more and more outdated daily. I won't be able to keep it much longer... or else I'll have to figure out what else the 'y' can stand for.
