    My new website !!

    hello everyone,

    I've just finished making my new website (or lets say my first REAL website). It mainly revolves around programming (C\C++ to be specific) so it'll have source codes , my own programs and my tutorials , and not personal stuff as the name implies.(I'ts still not 100% complete btw)

    anyway , i wrote a tutorial on bad programming practices in C wich is located here :

    http://www.mashhoor.ws/bpc.html

    and i need some productive criticism on it. If you could find any misconception(s) or technical error(s) then please let me know about it . I'll give you credit . (although im almost 100% sure about what i wrote).

    Also let me know if you think there are other "bad programming practices" that should be added to the list. (or adding more to an existing bad practice).


    And finally , what do you guys think about my site's design in general?


    Thanks for your time..

    Hey that's pretty cool! I like your website's design. You might want to change the logo from Site Launched 10 01 05 to a really sweet logo. And then you're golden ;) . I really like how you share the source, keep it up soldier! :)

    In case you were asking what the &lt is, it's an "escape character" of sorts for HTML, standing for <.

    Nice clean design, Brain Cell.

    actually its not fixed. there shouldn't be spaces around < >. You fix it change &lt to &lt; and &gt to &gt;

    It's kinda boring and there is quite a bit of white space. You should really try to dress it up a bit.

    You're website is really good, it's the kind I like, it loads fast, isn't busy and doesn't have loads of detail in it. It's really easy to browze through without getting lost aswell
    I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left.

    This is all about this tutorial. If you need to contact me to correct some errors/typos/misconseption
    I think you'll find that's spelled misconception. Kind of ironic
    There are a few other spelling mistakes too.

    I like the style though, I would disagree with Ober, that clean style you have is easy to work with. ( and quicker to load if you're on dial-up I should say). I find animated GIF's and Flash etc just distract.

    There are some places where the wording isn't too good, sentences a bit long. Because it's a technical page, try to keep it concise. My bible on this is "Writing Technical Reports" by Bruce M. Cooper. See if you can find a copy, it's well worth a look.

    I don't have a tutorial site, now do I? I don't expect a lot of repeat customers spending time reading and getting something out of my site. It is a business card. :fu:

    Nice, clean, concise design, Brain Cell. I like your lack of embedded music :P

    It needs some pizzaz, though. Something to make it unique, something to make it not boring. Something like...

    Fajitas!

    Just add some style to it, and it'll be perfect.

    I went through the tutorial again to find about 4 spelling mistakes and fixed them, i hope there aren't any now.

    btw , English isn't my native language , and i tried my best in that tutorial , but i'll see if i can make it any better. I'll check that book , too .. thanks

    I'm still learning CSS (and maybe learn javascript to add some interactivity) , so i'll update the design once im done.
