    Comment on Anybody use a Mac Mini?
    <b>
    Right now, at work, I'm using an early 2011 MacBook Pro. It's had no problems at all. I'll likely get a new one early next year, but I'm in no hurry because I don't want to give up the 17-inch display....

    Overall I haven't really ever had any problems with macs either. Basically just the grpahics card problems I've been talking about. And the 2011 MBP is notorious for them (which is what I have now)....

    This is a puzzling discussion because the things described run counter to my experiences.

    I've been buying Macs since 1984, and have probably owned, maybe, a couple dozen of them. Also during...

    Okay, first attempt at less boring. More variation in text size and background, some different images, shadows. Tried a few different layouts but nothing was hitting me. I actually like "hospice...

    They are what I used before my mpb. They always had issues. The graphics cards would get screwed up and the screens would freeze (like my mpb is now doing), they were for some reason slower than other...

    What do you mean? If you are looking to learn html css, php etc. try these websites:

    http://www.html.net/
    http://php.net/

    Or if you already know all that stuff and can make websites try get a job as a junior developer maybe or go freelancing.

    Good luck, any more questions I will try and answer.

      best off just to find a local college and see what they have to offer; a lot of the time with college you'll have a few in class as well as online courses.

          I'm looking for schools as well.

          The Academy of Art University in San Fran has a complete online program in Web Design and New Media, at least in a MFA they do.

            Before you choose any school, make sure you look at the bottom line. A lot of these schools (online ones especially) have fast talking "admissions advisors" that will get you to sign on the dotted line and by the time you've finished, you have only an AA degree and are 30k or more in debt. Caveat emptor.

              I'm currently completing my BFA in Graphic Design online at IADT (International Academy of Design and Technology). I know they offer web design as well, and it's been good for me thus far, although not cheap.

              I'm doing this because I've been working in the field for the past 5 years, am currently employed full-time, and have various certifications already, so I'm not starting from scratch and don't have enough time to go about a traditional GD degree program.

              If you're new to the field, be careful with online degrees:

              1) make sure you're capable of learning independently.
              this one is harder than it sounds! most of these programs are very fast-paced, and require a lot of independent research.
              2) make sure the college of your choice has decent accreditation. Some of them do not. One way of checking is making sure they qualify for government financial aid (you can check this on the dept. of education website).
              3) make sure they offer a well-rounded program (in terms of required courses), and one that allows plenty of interaction with your teachers, as well as other students.

              good luck!
              Show me something interesting. I won't steal it, just learn from it and draw my own conclusions.
