I'm a dinosaur :(

I've been putting it off for as long as possible, but I need to upgrade my web programming skills.  Without getting technical, I've been programming in one web language for about 10 years - and well, the web has moved on..  I'm finding that I'm running into difficulties getting stuff to work on new servers.

Its hard to change though - I'm quite comfortable with what I know and its hard to step out of that comfort zone.  Its also hard to find the time to learn something new - when you work for yourself, nobody pays you to do training!

Regardless of my comfort levels, its time for me to hit the books.

Absolutely sucky when that happens... I'm sort of in the same boat, if I was ever to return to industry I would be looking at skilling up on Vista and 2 versions of server let alone the office and other peripheral products that my job requires I have a better than working knowledge of.

Kind Regards

I don't envy you this challenge! It's all gobbledegook to me now, not having programmed since 1999 (last century, wow). I hope it pays off for you, upgrading your skills.

Good luck with that. I have absolutely no idea about programming, leave that up to the MR. :-)
