(I prefer and use ssh - SSH Secure Shell) for your home computer.
After you install ssh, you will be able to connect to:
bebop.cns.uni.edu or julia.cns.uni.edu or jet.cns.uni.edu or
spike.cns.uni.edu or faye.cns.uni.edu (any one of the
cowboy.cns.uni.edu computers [COWBOY is a CLUSTER of 5 computers]).
We use ssh and connect to cowboy cluster computers in our PERL hands-on
classes. Recall cd, chmod, ls, ls -l, logout, cd web, cd cgi-bin, cd
.., w, who, finger, pico myWebPage.html, pico myPERLscript.cgi, etc.
November 1st forms example. (You have the HTML as a handout).
CGI functions and the HTML they generated,
side by side. Also, using the param() CGI :standard function
without ANY parameters.
Colors for your web page.

- I assume no previous Excel experience, so
don't worry if you did not do much or any Excel in the past. You will

It covers HTML and gives further
