    Unhappy I'd like to get online

    I am using a library computer because I can't afford internet I thought however that if I told my comuper to be a server that it would pay for it self (internet I mean).

    1: how do I tell it to be a server
    2: how does payment work(like when someone visits your site).
    3: how do I tell it what to serve
    4: how do I get Google and other sutch search engines to put it on there list (like if someone types in free OS and my computer is serving that,) (kind of like advertizing).

    i would recommend that you start using the books in the library, not only
    the computers, and find out how "the internet" works -- don't just play
    games or watch movies. i don't know where you live, but i think it's
    likely that you find a friendly person in your library who will show you
    which books to look into to learn some basic facts about internet and
    computers in general. how old are you, by the way?

    No way! X'-)

    Read books. Study. Learn.

    A web page will not make money unless you have something really interesting
    to give others.

    You install the server packages.

    I would suggest reading some books on business basics and building a
    business case. You can't just put a server online and *presto*, money
    starts rolling in. You have to offer something people want at a price
    they're willing to pay.

    I may be too mutch an entrepreneur but I understand that there is no quick honest way to money; however I thought my chances would be better online where trillions of people are looking for stuff.

    I intended to offer greate free comuper programs like this one!!
    I have lots of free stuff I've checked out and it works.

    With only 6 billion people on the planet, obviously you won't have
    'trillions' of people looking for stuff.

    Here's the thing, selling "free stuff" tends not to work really well,
    because it's free.

    Again, I'd suggest you do some reading on building a business. That's
    not something we can really help you with here, nor is it the purpose of
    these forums.

    I belive I got my figures mixed up there. Mutch thanks to the poeple who suggested looking for books at the library, NOT because I never thought of that myself but because I have new keywords to lookunder like: Perl, Python, Ruby, Java, etc. I shall study as you guys suggest, it's the best thing to do considering that that opinion has been recomended across the board; and what can it hurt except my wish to get "it" now?

    thanks!

    i'm glad you see the wisdom of this; in the long run this will bring much
    better results than trying something without really knowing what you're
    trying to do. i'm not sure if your keywords are the best to start with:
    Perl, Python, Ruby, Java. those are pretty specialized subjects. but if
    you start with those, you'll soon find that you're missing some of the
    basics, and then go looking for that. good luck, and feel free to keep
    asking here -- preferably with questions that aren't as broad as "i'd like
    to get online."

    i don't know much about good books to get into the basics of it all;
    perhaps others have ideas?

    Hey you have been of more help then that!! I was thinking about why Hendrsj thought I would make money seling free software and I relized that when I was a kid I probably asked "Why does it cost so mutch to get online?" and the person compared it to my grandmothers cable service so I've allways thought that when someone visits your site you get some money out of there monthly bill and had it not been for his straight forward questions I might have made a big mistake . Unfortunetly the books in the library are between 3 and 10+ years out dated and most don't give many examples and most are geared to window users; so though I am learning I am also looking online for dowloadable manuals. In the meantime I am seeking and waiting for other ways to get online.
