Hi Peter,

I sent you an email with the following questions but seems like it might have landed in a SPAM folder or is lost in cyberspace.

First of all, Thank you very much for sharing such great how to do stuff. I am a programmer and mainly work in Java, but new to perl and php. I have few questions, if you could answer i would be very thankful.

If the following questions might sound foolish but if you could answer them i would be grateful.

1. What OS do you use, i assume linux ( which flavor and version).
2. Seems like you are hosting on your home server as it times out a lot.
3. I am using windows XP media center, can you please tell me how can setup the scripts on laptop
to run my localhost /localserver.
4. What domain service should i register to.
5. If i do choose a hosting service, how can setup your scripts on it to test?
6. What are the best resource to learn perl and php (quick and comprehensive tutorials).

I know you are very busy with studies. If you could give me 10-15 mins of your time by answering these questions
and if you have an advice for me, i would be thankful.

I wish you all the best for the future, please keep sharing your information and keep on creating cool web app,
when you can.
