When people say don't give up your day job, they mean it.
In my other life I am an airline pilot. (This is why it takes awhile for me to respond to comments) For fun I'm learning html, php, curl, mysql, css and crons. Need I say more. I'm building a site that uses all of them and uses computers as I think they were meant. That is to 'automate tasks' or be robots. This is all self taught, and thank heaven for sites like this.
So, if you think my programming is bad, come with me sometime on a flight. (Don't assume anything!)
I hope to give back those things I'm learning here.
