I'm more of a designer than a programmer, but I program for the web, using PHP, Javascript, and unless I can avoid it, MySQL.

I also grasp Bash shell scripting, a little LAMP server administration, and various other things that ultimately lead to creating and managing web sites.

When it comes to programming, and the things I do for IT work in general, my main issue is that of being a Jack of all trades - limited knowledge about many things, without being truly expert at any one of them. So I'm always having to ask questions because when it comes to any specific goal, almost certainly someone knows better than me how to do it. ;)

comment Is there a free 'Helvetica Neue' alternative?
According to the Wikipedia entry on Liberation fonts, "...documents embedding these fonts do not automatically fall under the GNU GPL, but will still likely cause problems with commercial software." I'm not a lawyer, but it seems that if you use Liberarion fonts in a software product, you may be obligated to apply a GPL license to that product, which may not be what you want. Again, stressing that I'm no expert in licensing, but I had to give up using Liberation on one project because of concerns over licensing.

comment How do I create a bevel effect on a complex object in Inkscape?
One other thing that I've noticed is difficult with the Inskcape filters is that when you apply two, they seem to impact each other. I found that when I first applied a drop shadow, then applied a bevel, the drop shadow would disappear. And, as you say, the interface makes it very difficult to determine what exactly is happening.

@Scott: Who said anything about asking about a "1 button or 1 menu item selection". This is the second time you've told me that, and frankly, it's a little tedious that you keep making that assumption. Let me be clear for hopefully the last time: I am willing to do whatever it takes, no matter how complicated, I am just looking for guidance on how. What's wrong for looking for guidance? So next time you want to offer this tired and misplaced advice, save it for someone for whom it actually might have relevance.
