Alright, here you can post something you learnt that you didn't know before this week (either relevant to hubpages or in general.)
I learnt how to use FTP to upload content to my website!
I'm too old to learn anything.
No, that's not true. But I can't think of anything that would make any sense to post because the stuff I'm apt to learn now is so incredibly geeky your eyes would glaze over.
I learned that entering a Wal-Mart store for the first time ever (boycotted for political reasons for years) did not immediately strike me deaf, dumb, blind or dead.
AND they have amazing prices on groceries.
Bad economy may have to trump principles in my household, at least temporarily.
We try to avoid them, but it is hard.
We don't ever tell our youngest daughter though. She'd have our hides
That's two of us, Mark! I learned that from Kangaroo and to write in small paragraphs from Pcunix. A veritable school, today!
Well, now that you all know what FTP is, you should learn that today's Linux/BSD systems (which run most websites) can use scp and or sftp instead.
Also, many will allow you command line access with ssh.
Rather than FTP or sftp, I use rsync to copy my web page files up and down. This in turn usually uses ssh underneath, but offers the advantage of only copying whatever has changed and needs to be copied, saving a great deal of time.
I hate being such an in between geek.
I'm geeky enough to have real world people look at me in confusion but words like you just wrote hurt my BRAIN!
Give me ten years and I might make sense of that jumble!
Allow me to 'ungeekify' this a small amount to parley more into laymens terms.
# Wholesale upload of files to a website - use FTP
# Update ONLY those files you have changed locally and reflect that on a website - use RSYNC
I learned that Pittsburgh uses a private towing company that is 5 miles outside the city and charges a minimum $200 + fine for any tow. So be careful how you park when downtown Pittsburgh.
I haven't learned anything this week yet, but Tuesday hasn't really started yet (whether or not the wee hours on the clock say it has). Maybe by Friday or Saturday I will have learned something new.
I also learned that a lot of the "off brand" items in grocery stores are made in the USA, have the exact same ingrediants and cost less than the "name brand" items that are almost always made in other countries.
I learned that I had another sibling between myself and my brother.
I learned that when making illustrations on a presentation board or portfolio, they should be proportionately larger than the rest of the items on the page because they are the focal point of the prospective sale.

Did you grow up learning three languages at the same time? My children 6 and 3 are learning English-Spanish and French at the same time. They seem to be coping very well but I would like to hear about people who has done the same.

My first hub was a copy paste news on David Vila's first goal in world cup 2010 and I did not know how to create similes those days. I had 4-5 copy paste production back to back all on daily news from newspapers. . Then, learnt about the TOS and deleted all. Then created few more substandard craps....
