  1. Fuck stylesheets.

    This is supposed to make things easiesr/more accessible? I feel like I'm wading through mud thumbing through these .css files that keep fucking multiplying, and it takes me half an hour alone to find the right <div> tag for what I need in the document. 99% of the time, I'm taking an existing page and deleting all the content to make room for the new page. Of course, there's no tutorial that helps you with this.

    TYPICAL CSS TUTORIAL:
    1. 2+2=4.
    2. Got that? Good. Now let's take a look at actual code.
    3. minMaxIlliterateCrap: 400px; font-weight: "assload" font-pixel-measurement-that-doesn't-do-anything: "-1px" font-fingering: "-2xy/5(cos(g))Ö♣▐a«╨┐⌡+{╒²ƒe▲+1".
    4. Since we learned that 2+2=4, you can easily comprehend everything that spills out of my fat mouth. Wasn't that easy? I need a towel, my keen insight caused me to have an orgasm.

    I can't even learn this shit on my own time-- my whole day is basically starting this business. I should've started from scratch. How many goddamn fonts and spacings do you need for a handful of pages, anyway? As soon are these pages are up, I'm throwing all this crap out. Why in God's good name do programmers feel the need to make every language just as complex as C++, even though I'm not getting 1/10th of the functionality? I sure as hell don't feel more organized, my pages sure as hell don't look more versatile, and technology sure as hell doesn't seem like it's in the palm of my hand. Someone tell me why I'm doing this, other than the fact than I'm saving users a fat 4k of drive space, even though 99.9% of the people who will be visiting our site will be on a T3.

    I'm masochistic. Yeah, that's it. That's the only explanation.

      I wish I could help you with CSS but honestly all I know are what certain tags do. I mean I had to learn what to use when I would make custom look-ups for people on Neopets. So all I know is how to place banners and how to define text color and link colors and such. I don't know the mechanics behind what I'm doing but just how to do it.

      Its kinda like knowing how to play the guitar and not knowing how to read music.

      Sorry if that didn't make any sense.

      Yeah, I know your pain. The only difference: I have no problem grasping code logic, but it's when I'm given a deadline of two days to decipher someone's fucked-up CSS and somehow be able to get eight pages of valid content to materialize from it that gives me a real problem.

      Starting from scratch isn't an option at this point. I don't know, there are underlying issues here. I've scrapped three designs already(on each of which I've spent weeks), because the boss says, "I have this idea in my head". Of course, the image in his head invariably bears an uncanny resemblance to Microsoft's or Macromedia's website, and any attempt to be original(i.e. learn HTML through my own process) has been picked apart.

      EDIT: Playing guitar and not knowing how to read music isn't that great of an analogy. Because that's what I do, and I do it smashingly.

      My site uses CSS. I don't find it complex at all. But then again, I'm not doing anything really complex with the CSS. Just trying to make things a little simpler and less time consuming.
