    It seems like a lot of people here are indeed upset with how things are but you're not up-in-arms about it. All I see is a bunch of whining and complaining but no real action. One of the reasons I came to this site was for a little bit of guidance. I know that no one ever said that guidance was here but I figured I'd get something from at least one person here. But instead it's just complaining or arguments. There isn't any progression or talk of progression. The site just feels like a place where one could go to blow off steam. I need something heavier than that.

    What type of guidance? Heavier in what sense if you don't mind me asking.

    And now we've got another thread doing the same thing. Get up and do something. It's a discussion forum, it can't actually get anything done without action.

    1. Pull your money out of banks and put them in credit unions

    2. Pay off all your credit cards

    3. Have only one, with a low limit and pay cash as often as possible

    4. Become politically aware and vote accordingly

    5. Never vote for a right wing publican

    6. Encourage family and friends to do the same

    Many of us are "up in arms," but how do you take real life action from an Internet forum? Once this dilemma is solved, you will see more of the results you desire.

    I feel you bro

    folks can talk about all kinds of history and mystery but where is the conversation about doing something collective about education of Black children globally via the internet,or forming our own Black health care networks

    or exchanging ideas on how to reach our youth before gang recruiters do, and then collectively embrace the gang recruiters and transform them the way Detroit red Little, was transformed
    some say they are afraid to talk about solutions in front of white people

    So what! one can get killed just walking down the block in many of our neighborhoods, by a drunk driver coming up on the sidewalk or a crackhead with a gun.

    I had suggested under the name Putney Swope, that there be a solutions only week, and got booed and laughed at.

    Here is a tutorial on HTML.
    This one is better for this is a tutorial on HTML5.

    If you need help on other web technologies such as XML; web server and application administration; FTP; web service providers; and others, just let me know.
