Fix My Bug

After wrestling with a stupid syntax error for several days, I got sick of staring at the same code for ages and started working on this.

Fix my bug!

Sometimes it’s more fun to help someone else with their code than work on your own. That’s what fixmybug is for. Put your syntax error up, and while you wait for someone to figure it out, knock one out  for someone else.

I’m amazed at how quickly and easily this thing came together. It’s pretty bare bones, but it still required a couple of years to learn the css, html, javascript, php, and mysql that went into it. 2 years ago I wrote my first Hello World in Python, and it took months of half-hearted stabbing at the command line to even get that far. Now I’ve got 98% of a diploma in Computer Systems Technology, I can build stuff like this, I think I’m ready to start working for a living. I look forward to reviewing my source code a year from now and being ashamed of it. But right now, I’m pretty proud.
