Few High PR links vs. Several lower PR links

06 July 2006 - 04:15 PM

As per post title which do users think is better in there experience for PR?

Is it only worth submitting to high PR directories? Obviously the more links the better, but is submitting to 300+ directories actually worth it for the time it takes, when several directories will collapse fairly rapidly?

What are your thoughts.

Design Process

05 July 2006 - 11:06 PM

When you are coming up with a new design for a website, what design process do you go through?

I personally look at oswd.org and find a template that I think would suit my needs, then hack/edit it to meet my requirements.

If a job requires a custom template, I will look around at tutorials, or just create a custom one in photoshop, before slicing and coding up in dreamweaver.

What is your design process?

How do you learn a programming language?

03 July 2006 - 03:00 AM

As per the title, how do you learn a programming language?

I have used a combination of, tutorials, editing existing scripts for my needs as well as books (usually from amazon).

I actually find editing existing scripts to be the most useful, although it is still hard to master a language such as C++

What methods have other coders used?

PHP vs. perl/cgi

02 July 2006 - 05:28 AM

I much prefer coding in PHP and haven't really bothered coding in PERL/CGI at all mainly because it is simpler (IMO)

Also, the majority of applications are now coded in PHP - meaning if I use existing off-the-shelf scripts, I am more likely to use PHP.

In fact, the reasons why I use PHP are covered here!

Which do you tend to use and why?
