Head First HTML Progress

I'm on chapter 8 in "Head First HTML". It's the first chapter dedicated to CSS.

I want to finish the book by May 10th and have the 1st version of my website done by May 14th.

Python Progress

I've been doing lessons from "Dive Into Python" every once in a while. I'm on chapter 4: The Power of Introspection. The next lesson I will be doing is "4.5: Filtering Lists".

Here's the link to the book. DiveIntoPython

Switching my Python learning source

I've changed the source that I'm using to learn Python. Dive Into Python is what I'm using now. The tutorial I was using before was from the "New to Programming" section of Well, I'm not new to programming. I thought I had forgotten enough to warrant starting on an absolute beginner level, but I soon realized that this was the wrong choice.

Finished Chapter 4 of Head First

Chapter 4 was about how to actually get on the web. Like setting up a hosting company and uploading your web page with ftp. They also introduced some "a tag" attributes like target, id, and title.

Python programming

So I decided to get myself a basic understanding of Python. There seems to be tons of stuff you can do with it and I like how simple it it.

I'm doing some of the beginner tutorials at the Python website. The 1st and 4th tutorials are the ones I've mainly been looking at.

Finished Chapter 3 of HFHTML

It was mostly about block elements,inline elements and lists. Block elements skip a line before they are displayed. Some common block elements are paragraph (p) and blockquote.
