DS9 is decent, maybe try an episode guide so you only watch the main arc. TOS is pretty meh, was so underwhelming watching it after having it hyped by all Trekkies as the best.

Not per se young:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pirate_Party (just look up your nearest one)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_education (Most 'good' universities have some sort of open program running in background with great resources)

Well the 'The Library of America' has a great collection of his novels (including the complete V.A.L.I.S. trilogy), so it won't go down easily.

Then there is 'The Exegesis of Philip K Dick' which is a monster and such a cluster of all things (reading the V.A.L.I.S. trilogy beforehand is recommended) that I'm still busy with it because catching up on the references he casually mentions in his letters are big and hard texts. But a very good look into his mind and how the V.A.L.I.S. trilogy came to be.

Some more solid Dick:

“The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use them.” Philip K. Dick

“The problem with introspection is that it has no end.” ― Philip K. Dick

“This, to me, is the ultimately heroic trait of ordinary people; they say no to the tyrant and they calmly take the consequences of this resistance.” ― Philip K. Dick

“I guess that's the story of life: what you most fear never happens, but what you most yearn for never happens either. This is the difference between life and fiction. I suppose it's a good trade-off. But I'm not sure.” ― Philip K. Dick

“There will come a time when it isn't 'They're spying on me through my phone' anymore. Eventually, it will be 'My phone is spying on me'.” ― Philip K. Dick

“This is a mournful discovery. 1)Those who agree with you are insane 2)Those who do not agree with you are in power.” ― Philip K. Dick, VALIS

“A man is an angel that has gone deranged.” ― Philip K. Dick

[DIY] How Much HTML and CSS Should You Know To Develop? by Mnemonic in Internet

Ah I see, when I started searching a lot of tutorials popped up, so just put 'psd to html' in your favorite search engine and pick your tutorial. All of the ones I looked through get into the the html and css part at first glance pretty well.

https://www.w3schools.com/ is a great overall resource for html and css, for looking things up.

I also found this article: https://blog.teamtreehouse.com/psd-to-html-is-dead but that's more of an 'if you're interested and have nothing to do' kind of read ;)

Goodluck!

convert PSD to a real website

Okay, so what exactly do you mean by that?

  • A picture split-up into a header, sidebar, footer. Like an oldstyle website.

  • uploading and using the psd as image file?

  • something else?

Because maybe I can find a nice tutorial. HTML, CSS and even Javascript is pretty simple to read and thinker with BUT getting on real production level is something else.

You have been funnied because my 'up-bulbed' is much, much more and also way cooler, but you made me giggle with the knowlegde that people think light-bulbs emit white light.

Edit: wait... I see, it's white in the icon... hmmm, still though... Mine's better :p

That would only work for the front page and with low user activity.

There is a funny tab that shows the top funny posts, so what more is there to want?

Exactly, his 'rebel' things sound okay but his solutions are basically: accept the system, you can only be happy if you're part of the system, system is good.

I became interested because he was described as giving value to myths, which is basic Gnosticism and talking about Jung. But the way he goes about it and the 'conclusions' he reach are paradoxical with the practice he claims to use to reach them.

He is like a politician, instead of fixing or destroying the machine he just wants to oil it up so the kinks aren't as noticeable.

I myself am conflicted with fixing or destroying because 'The Industrial revolution' is out of pandora's box and will only get back in if most of humanity is destroyed by a worldwide catastrophic event(s) (think dinosaur extinction level) {aka destroying the system}. And Fixing is as hard as debugging, only with a lot of different languages, cultures and different outlooks(aka design plans). Kind of like when we all go about implementing our utopian view on Saidit by editing the same files simultaneously.

Well Ted was talking about all people, the non-domesticated side of JP is just his rebel impulse.

But the/a true rebellion against the system he doesn't preach, he is preaching against changes he finds not correct to the system, but still fully endorsing the system.
