Hey who remembers K &R? Don't know what that is? Don't feel bad, just Google it.
Anyway, I created this blog because a friend asked me how to and how much it would cost to set up a blog. There is one he really likes called CalculatedRiskBlog.com and he was interested in trying his hand at building a blog.
Well I've been doing computer programming for 30 years and have been in the thick of the whole internet 'thing' for lack of a better term. And when someone asks me a question like that I either know the answer or know how to get one quickly. And sure enough I saw the blogspot icon pop up on the Firefox tab when I went and looked at CalculatedRiskBlog.com.
I then went to blogspot.com (which redirected me to blogger.com, but so what) and found that it was all free! Great! I sent my friend an email and gave him the good news. Now he is getting up the momentum to get a blog of his own. So I know the next question is something like "Hey I want to do so and so on my new blog. Can I do that?" So I thought I'd best get a first hand look at how this is done and here I am.
