I decided to burn the candle at both ends this week and do a little web work for a couple of hours before work every morning. I may rethink this if today doesn’t go so well.
So far in my web design “career” I have managed to avoid learning much of anything about ASP. Here lately I’ve had to mess with it some, and I haven’t had a very good experience.
I don’t really understand how it works. I can look at the code and think I get it intellectually, but there are things going on that I am unaware of, meaning that when I go to edit, I end up breaking the page. It is really irritating.
In the case of the particular project I’m working on this morning, there must be some special settings on the server, because I can’t get the page to work on my own machine. That makes it a little hard to test, doesn’t it?
So now I’m paranoid that I’m going to completely destroy the page I’m working on. I guess I’ll spend this morning working through some ASP tutorials and studying the existing page code…
