Eh, that's right yeah. Developing websites is all about writing girly HTML and
design. I mean, we don't have to code hefty backends for the sites do we? We get
"programmers" to do that. And we don't understand those "computer" things that
the websites go on, or these "webservers" I've been hearing all about. And
what's this "DNS" stuff all about? I don't understand.
Pity they didn't teach you any people skills in that Comp. Sci course, huh Ken?
I was lucky - self-taught you see - so it looks like I'll be able to afford the
Lamborghini before I'm 35. I just hope I can figure out how to drive it! Duh!
