Your right, maybe I should slow down, but you can't say I don't know anything.
I have mastered all of these langauges, I don't know everything about them, of course I sometimes ask questions, but in general I can do a lot with them.
I have learnt quite a bit of perl, python, command line(linux), and countless other things (seo, submission, and various other things.
I expand my knowledge, because I can.
I hate to see when someone get's to a point they don't pursue any other languages, or trying to do anything for learning.
You say jack of all trades, master of none, that's far from true.
Trying to learn too much is hard, it takes me awhile but I decide on my limits, when the time comes, I now know enough about logo's, layout's, to be able to occassionally have fun building them, but instead of getting deeper, deeper into it right now, I turned it over to someone else, and have a good arrangement for that, so I can concentrate most of my effort on coding/programming, and other web related stuff.
I also read that last post, thanks.
I will try to slow down, as far as programming/coding, I am delving totally into it, because I am becoming obsesses.
I can't stop programming, I look at these languages, perl, python, and I start getting into it, and I feel so much power.
Programming is one of the greatest things I have ever done.
RIght now I do coding(css, xhtml), and programming.
I bear other aspects as well, like seo, optimization, I am not the best at them, but I know how to do them with some pretty good results.
I did C++ for 15 minutes, and I loved it. It was the best, and funnest language I ever worked with, I don't have a lot of time for other languages now, I am doing 90% of my time in php/mysql.
I do know that once you know mysql, you can go to any other database platform, on my own test host, I went and bought a nother host for testing purposes, I have tried my same website in
Oracle(It was included on my friends host), postgresql, OSDB, peardb, mssql, msaccess
I didn't get so heavy into these i memorizes all there specific functions, but I can say, if I was given any project, at all with any database system involved, I could either use it, or figure it out very quickly.
I wouldn't be an expert at them, I am not even an expert at mysql, but I am learning a lot more than I use to know.
Most things I wasn't wanting to master just feel comfortable doing the basics, like the graphic design stuff, I got comfortable then I stopped.
Actionscript, I have 2 people now who are masters at "flash" and they do some actionscript, I am a programming so actionscript will be easy to pick up, then when I combine my skills with those people, it will be amazing
I will slow down some, it's just I get frustrated now, after all this time, when I run into something I can't do.
