asp is fun

Hi! My name is Lisa, and I've been a database developer and coder since 1987. I was lucky enough to grow up in a family that had "internet" access since the early 70s, so some of my earliest memories are of programming basic games on a tiny thermal-paper terminal with acoustic couplings to stick a phone into. Ah, those were the days.

Nowadays we have blisteringly-fast cable modems and machines that have more memory than we used to have on our hard drives. And ASP is one of the most amazing software languages you can use. With it you can create automatic headers and footers that all of your pages share, create counters, mail forms, automatically updating inventory pages, quizzes, polls, and much, much more.

IMPORTANT NOTE: While I will help you LEARN, I will not DO your homework for you. If you write me for help, I will help you learn your project's tasks. I will not SOLVE your problems, though. Homework is given so you figure out for yourself out how things work and why they don't. I will help you see why your project does not work, but I will not write code for you. So far, I have had thousands of very happy students who went on to code great projects, and one girl who became *verbally abusive* when I would not do her homework for her. Verbally abusive visitors will NOT be helped!
