Your welcome Jim. ... I did find that some of those, even tho they are the sites ips, may not let you get there... some give an 'access denied' such as pctools and others automatically change to the written url, like norton, right after you use the ip to get there... working around in those sites will take alot of copying and pasting ... symantec/norton won't let you (or maybe just me) use the ip in place of 'www.symantec.com' then '/some/rest/of/an/official/link' to get around in there.

app103... Hello  :)

I know one is never too old to learn,.... and it's not that I'm 'afraid' to give it a try, it's more like literally having and finding the time. It seems the more I try to get into learning whatever it is I'm trying to learn, the more others want my time....  It's like 'Hey she's at (whatever it is) again... lets need something' lol ... I can't remember the last time I was actually able to devote even 1 hour to sticking with what I am/was trying to do without someone screaming 'chaos over here, drama over there!!' 

Funny, is that I was just explaining that same 'never being able to find the time to actually stick to it' to my son, Then I read your post.  Also, I ran into the thread for "Interruptron" ....something says my using that program would render me a "100% interuption, give it up" result, if it took all the 'outside the computer' interuptions into account  lol

I started in 1995 just messing around on computers, in the last 4 years I have self taught myself how to fix all these things that they, too easily, find ways of messing up. 2 years ago our situation took an unfortunate turn and ever since it has been the 'chaos over here, drama over there!!' scenario.  I figure as my kids get more into programming, and when time allows for our situation to improve, I will probably give it a try.

.. as you stated in your profile  "...at some point early on in life decided to become a programmer and ended up having to sweep those dreams under the rug for a bunch of reasons and never did become a programmer. But dreams have a way of coming back to haunt you, so it might be a bit late to be starting out and starting over, but better late than never." 
I know I'll, also, get to that point but unfortunately it's gonna have to wait just a bit longer.

Thank you, app103, for your encouragement and for the link you provided.. I had always seen that particular forum but had never been able to get there (that darn 'time' stuff).

Have a great day, as it is and has been a great pleasure to meet you!!!

As a sidenote to mouser:

WOW!!... I have spent years learning to/working on 'fixing' computers and trying to implement security on them (mostly, for family members after they crash the harddrives from viruses or from thinking they know what they are doing by being click happy and deleting major components, totally rendering them useless). My oldest bro used to have an old Commodore and I  remember always wanting to get on it and use it but he would never let anyone near it... kinda wish he had. I had always been interested in learning to program (even tried a course in programming once, ages ago) but the more time passed the more it seemed I just could never find the time to actually hide myself away for days in order to concentrate on it and learn it.

After reading your replies to her questions I decided that, at my age, it'd be best to leave all the programming to my kids and just stick to doing the fixing of them  :)

My daughter, after reading both yours and Veigns' replies says she is even more interested now in programming so I've decided that as soon as it is feasibly possible I will make both my kids an account here. I think that they could learn alot just from this website alone. I think their being members here would have a deep impact on enhancing their learning and help them to build on their skills.

Thank you!!

Veign and mouser,

My daughter has decided to use both of your replies to the interview in her career outlook report. She wants me to let you both know that she appreciates you taking the time to help her with this as this project counts as basically 100% of her 9 weeks grade.

We cannot say, in words, how grateful we truly are for you having taken the time that you did to help, as we know that you are both very busy.

Thank you, both, again very very much!!,

gally and Nikki

Hi Veign,

Hmmm, that may work but the teacher is gonna want a specific persons name, job title, # of years experience etc
... maybe we could just put "the entire donationcoder team"  ;)  and the 'collective' amount of years.. that'll have her thinking, hay? lol (hope she has a sense of humor)


If that is the route we take, just posting the questions, should I post them here or would there be another specific forum I should post them in?

Plus my daughter just informed me that not only does the teacher Not have a sense of humor but she is also, the 'detention' boss ....  not good!

Hello wreckedcarzz,

Yes, mouser is very nice and he is a great programmer... I also thought of asking him.
But as you mentioned he is busy, and though it might not hurt to ask him, I also don't want him to feel as though he would 'have to' help us out, (if you know what I mean.. ) kinda why I posted here, instead of just intruding.

Plus with us writing to the colleges, and waiting for replies, she has pretty much hit her deadline as it is due tomorrow  :(

Hi Rover,

The interview can be in person, or online.  I, myself, love computers but when it comes to any kind of programming, i'm all thumbs, lol.  My son is taking programming also but my daughters teacher said he won't work for the interview because he's just taking classes, not officially a programmer yet  >:(   lol

and yes, you are right, there are many fine people here and we probably should have come here in the first place.

Thank you!

Hello all, my name is gally.
My daughters school is asking them about what careers they are interested in and she chose computer programming. Her teacher wants her to now interview a computer programmer....

Our problem is, that she knows of no programmers right her in her hometown that she can interview. I had her write to several colleges to inquire if any of them could help her out with this, they all told her no and to search online.  I suggested she try here.  I'm not sure if this is even the place to be asking but at this point we are at a loss as to where to turn. I realize this is 'software' programing but I'm hoping that maybe someone here may know or have an idea of where she may be able to find a computer programmer that might be willing to be interviewed.  Any thoughts?

Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to provide.

gally

Thank you mouser, and the Donationcoder community, for the programs you all build, for the giveaways you conduct, and for a chance for us "unknowledgable in building programs/coding" to share in yours.

Thank you cthorpe, and all the companies that gave all the wonderful prizes.

I, also, joined the site mainly to support the ScreenShotCaptor program. As far as my "not posting" goes,... talk little, read, listen (and try to learn) much...

Thank you, again, to all of you!
