     eeek.  I just sent my resume.  Ryan sez DON’T SEND A RESUME!  I think I just blew this job.
    (even though I started a SPACE MONKEY SURF ROCK BAND The Disasternauts.)

  5. If you don’t already know HTML or CSS, the first step would be to learn them quick. It’s not too hard. I kind of see it as programming arts & crafts.http://brainformation.net
