Jon took the time to respond to something I said on the newsgroup I forgot what it was now. Anyway, I had a quick look at his web site, CerealKiller's Helpdesk, and could see right away that is was filled with good information on a variety of things. It was the first worldnet pwp (personal web page) that I have felt compelled to bookmark. I am very glad I did because it just keeps getting better.

His technique for teaching html principles is to have an example (i.e.: a table similar to the one at the bottom of this page.) followed immediately by the code to make it happen with some explanation along the way. Since I usually know what I want but need to know the syntax, his tutorials really work for me. Also, one could *really* learn html by sitting down and carefully reading the whole thing. They are very complete.

Html is only one small part of his web site, there is quite a lot more. The main thing is that he really seems to get his kicks by helping people. I personally have a lot of respect for this kind of person.

Among his talents, Jon is a fantastic artist (imho). I don't know much about computer art, or art in general, but I really like his work. I talked him into letting me display one of his works here. They remind me of Rene Magritte's work. Magritte has always been one of my favorites.

I should also note that the name sounds ominous (especially given the BS floating around the general public about the web), but it is just that Jon eats a lot of cereal. Here is the explaination he e-mailed my once...

FWIW, I personally (Tom) have never gotten involved with IRC and have no "nick"...I waste enough time on the usenet!!!

Oh Ya...Jon made the "InterScape-NaviSplorer" .gif for me!

It's great IMHO!
