@Lilyheart when it says to nest all htmls in .container-fluid.

<div class="container-fluid" link rel="stylesheet" href="//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.1/css/bottstrap.min.css" link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Lobster" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>

</div>

My first post on here I apologize if there is a better way to do this.

@kshum2016 what is the name of the fcc lesson you are doing?
xD your post is fine. There is a way to make the code a tad nicer https://github.com/FreeCodeCamp/FreeCodeCamp/wiki/Code-Formatting

It's up to you of course, but you can update your display name on github and it'll update here (how I have Lily Romano @Lilyheart on comments - https://github.com/settings/profile

Wonder if I can change that

Awesome. Might take a bit to transfer over to Gitter. But it'll get there eventually.

Just figured out why I didn't see the pinned post before last nights meeting. While accessing Facebook via iPhone you need to click the "view pinned post link" it doesn't just appear at the top by default

Mobile is the WORST about those damn pinned posts. They give up a feature to highlight a post.... and then make it harder to find on mobile where I would hazard to guess it is most frequently used

Starting to seriously consider starting on fcc.....

Just found out... the first MontCode member to finish the front end FCC certificate has a full time job now using those skills. xD

What kind of certificate do they issue? Is it frame worthy ? Or do you just go ahead and print it out
So close to finishing my FE cert. I should buckle down and just do like a project a week or two during school.

Lili...Hi.
Seems I need a newer pooter to use github
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jan 12 2017 19:35
why? shouldn't. Might have to do it a long way around tho. What kind of pooter ya got?
Robert Wilber
@robert194w

running xp. site says min win7
back to the old laptop purchase discussion
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jan 12 2017 19:37
Did you try from here? https://git-scm.com/downloads
Robert Wilber
@robert194w
Jan 12 2017 19:38
it tells you to download the git desktop. it won't install
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jan 12 2017 19:38
Could do a laptop purchase. Or if you want, bring what you have by the house and have Cletus look at it. Might be able to get it updated on the cheap (heck, he might even have stuff to do it).
Robert Wilber
@robert194w
Jan 12 2017 19:40
I never updated my windows because none of my programs run on newer windows - support for them ended after xp.
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jan 12 2017 19:41
He and I can still help you out on that. There are ways of making it work.

I suppose I will have to get a laptop. back to my issue - should I get a windows unit or try to move to linux with a new machine
oh...really? [sounding intrigued...]
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jan 12 2017 19:43
linux vs windows: really depends on what kind of programs you NEED and which OS they are available for. Linux tend to be cheaper but depending on the distribution, might have a steeper learning curve. Windows... is a microsoft project. You know what you are gonna get.
If you are interesting it trying to keep some of what you have, message me what you have right now and I'll get to Cletus and we can game plan.
But if you want a new machine, by all means go for it xD

I have a cinnamon drive installed but usually work in xp. but a laptop would be practical, especially if I plan to come to your meets.
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jan 12 2017 19:46
true true. I do have a laptop I plan to refurb for meetups so there is a spare when needed. Thanks for reminding me xD I keep forgetting to put that on my todo list.
Robert Wilber
@robert194w
Jan 12 2017 19:46
I doubt I would move everything to a laptop, just because I don't want to replace all my programs to suit newer OS
I guess a win laptop would be ok for my purposes since my older system can stay private that way
In the meanwhile I am going thru the other parts of the code camp. Nice
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jan 12 2017 19:49
Awesome. Honestly for what you are working on, git isn't totally necessary. Would be a nice to have but not required.
Robert Wilber
@robert194w
Jan 12 2017 19:51
then maybe I will hold off for now. codepen works ok [if I can ever understand what to do...]
thanks
