i'm going to have a heap of questions, so i thought i'd just start a thread where i can ask everything. first of all... i'm making a personal site. i know the basics of HTML and Flash, but there's some more complicated things i'm not sure on... firstly, i want to have a section of my site that i'll be able to update frequently with news and any random stuff i think of. this might help explain it better: k10k.net. have a look at the 'News' section of the site. i want to do something like that, just a small box with text. is there an easy way to do that? next question... i want to setup a email account at my domain. for example firstname.lastname@example.org. is this done through the provided webmail programs like NeoMail, Horde, SquirrelMail? if so, which of those three would people here recommend? and finally, what do people here think about HTML vs Flash for sites? i'm thinking of going the Flash route because i'm going to have alot of animations, and also, Flash is just cool. coudl my first question about the 'News' section be done in Flash? i'm sure i've seen something like it before... i'm not worried about having to learn stuff because i'm going to college next year to do web design, so i thought i'd just get a head start. so no matter how complicated the stuff is that i want to do, just let me know if it can be done, and i'll search around the 'net for the answers. thanks for the help, i really appreciate it.
