A friend hooked me up and now I have a website at tunnelentrance.com...

Come, and join me, as I begin this fun ride into setting up a website.

Some things I would like to do on my own eventually would be:

to learn to use php and mysql effectively with perl alongside it. If you want to join in, please, please, please give me pointers on anything in beginning programming-wise for databases etc.

I'm going to bed now and will post more later. ;)

One of the biggest mistakes that I've seen occur by newbies to databases is screwing up the schema... badly. A lot of people without the benefit of a database course (including a large number of professional developers) seem to be under the impression that database design is just a simple matter, easily changed, etc. Nonsense! If you screw up the database schema, eventually you'll run into a difficult query or insertion/deletion problem and have to change the database... and all the code that happens to interact with that portion of the database.

I'm a big fan of iterative, bottom-up design, for writing programs -- nobody gets a complicated design right the first time.

With database design... get it right the first time!
