I'm considering pulling one of my classmates in 232 aside and asking for a few quick side lessons in CSS-building, since I'm botch awful at it, and don't get the advanced stuff like DIV and whatnot. (This would be the classmate who is a faculty member. At my school, this is something of a novelty -- a faculty member attending one of the classes in the department they teach in -- but I couldn't think of any good reason the teachers at my school shouldn't be learning new things. Is this unique?)
I ended up withdrawing from an introductory Java class some time back; I still have the textbook. When I've had enough of the project for a few hours, I plan to start working through the intro examples in the book and familiarizing myself with Java syntax. (I realize now that the entire barrier to my understanding anything in Java was my non-understanding of OO principles. Now that I have a passing grasp of them, I think Java may be surmountable.)
Is surmountable a word? I can't remember it being used, but 'surmount' feels like a word for some reason. Damn. Should check this.
