Aha! moments compliments of Castro

While I was unable to get to the price reading, I experienced something today that none of those books have showed me. I had several of what I like to call "Aha" moments today in class and when I was trying to do the upload exercise. I have been having the same trouble with saving and naming and copying the codes as everyone else has. Today I had Professor Jerz show me a quick way of finding the trouble spots in my code. He gave each line a seperate number and then bought up the html page to see which line did not come up.
He also gave me a new insight to what exactly I am getting out of working with internet writing. Whenever I have a problem with this project, I tend to go back to the section where I put in the coding for the action and see what steps I took to put it in. Jerz told me that this kind of action is training my eye to be more perceptive. Kind of like copyediting, finding where the intial problem started from. That was a big "Aha!" moment for me. I am starting to see that while this is kind of hard now, in the long run I will be able to put this on a resume and say that I know a bit about internet writing. Along with the fact I learned how to put my images in. I'd say this is the most rewarding day I had with internet writing so far.

Glad to hear it, Rachel. Maybe you could demonstrate that numbering technique for your peers?

Thanks for the feedback.
