Why this Forum Exists
This forum is generally about development within any branch of the Internet, with sites that allow you to do something useful online while connected to the Internet.
The ideas should be written with the average person in mind; people on a tight budget without formal credentials in software or hardware. Try to avoid answering questions with cash oriented solutions, or impressive sounding cool jargon and meaningless buzz words.
That's pretty much the premise, if it's to be taken seriously; is it possible for the general public to develope computorial capabilities through the Web without a parentally financed background?
