Welcome to Alan's Technolinx

This Technical Links site was begun in 1995 as a reference site for students attending my webmaster seminars. It is updated regularly.
It contains a number of Technical Reference Links which could answer many of your questions about creating Websites using HTML, Graphics, CGI, Java & Javascript and Installing and Running a Professional Web Server.
A lot of the hottest new links are at my "CA97" Lecture Website, so don't miss that. It includes download links to all of the software I use in my lectures/classes - CA97 Resources

Please use these pages to find links to the content you'll
need to print your own Reference Manuals.

Laziness

The quality that makes you go to great effort to reduce overall energy expenditure. It makes you write labour-saving programs that other people will find useful, and document what you wrote so you don't have to answer so many questions about it. Hence the first great virtue of a programmer."

Larry Wall [Programming Perl, Larry Wall and Randal. L. Schwartz, 1992 O'Reilly & Associates, Inc., page 426.]
