Maybe you are right, maybe I am looking at it wrong.

I apologize.

I know enough about them, to get around.

WIth some effort, thinking, and help from other's I seem to be able to get past any type's of problems I encounter with the languages I know, maybe that is a better, more accurate way to put it.

The graphic design, I admit, I wasn't cut out to be a graphic designer, and as far as not taking your advice, I try my best, it takes me awhile to admit I was wrong, but I always try to listen, I ultimately listened to all the advice about getting a graphic designer partner, I might ahve had to learn the hard way a little but ultimately I took all the advice.

hmm i hate the idea of feeling like a bully, like rounding on a "victim", but in this case it's unavoidable.

BM, as you're so philosophical, maybe you should consider the following (very famous) saying: "Actions speak louder than words." Very very rarely have you come back with something that shoves our doubts back up our arses and proves us wrong. Are we being harsh? Nah...just realistic. and you do ask, after all.

I've never personally known anyone so ignorant of help. You ask a question. It trails of a little. So you open another thread, closely related. Then you reply to someone elses thread saying "yeah, i had this problem too - look at my thread". and then, when you've totally ignored advice and as a result get hammered for it, you set up yet another thread asking "should i end my career? am i cut out for this?" - a thread which people advise you very critically, normally ending with something like "yes, i will do that!". then it's all back to square one.

as ober said - kudos to Barand, one of the most experienced and knowledgable around these parts. I've actually looked at his code, and would say that in some cases, I think I could better it.However, in most ways, he'd wipe the floor clean we me. Same goes for ober, AndyB, obsidian, jcombs, Jenk, etc - some things i think i think i could do better (IMHumbleO), but mostly i'd be sitting back learning from these chaps. My point? No one is the master. Being the master of something means complacency - complacency means you will eventually be grounded. Being the master means being at the top of your game - being at the top of your game means you have nothing left to aim for.

You also state that you have no time to redo your site for another 12-18 months, or whatever. So:
a) what was the point in asking for critique if you're not gonna do anything about it?
b) With all the time it takes you to write all your questions, I could have rewritten your site several times over. It would get hammered if I posted it in web critique - but not as much as yours does at the moment.

So do yourself a favour - go away and do something that will show us that our help has not been in vain. Mostly I like you - your enthusiasm is great - but other than that, there's nothing there but talk.

"you have to keep pissing in the wind to learn how to keep your shoes dry..."

I say old chap, that is rather amusing!
