    Does anyone know how to copy an https:// website successfully?

    Amd is right. If this were a simple html site maybe you could. But since you are talking about login in which means there is a back end language maybe php and also a database, scripts that depend on both these and cookies your not going to get a copy. If you had software that could copy the...

    how could one start coding (java script or something)

    Yea i definitely agree with this what happens when you do something practically is you start asking questions you would never have thought of reading a book or listening to a lecture . you start getting involved more the the concept of the language than the syntax .

    how could one start coding (java script or something)

    I have a very strange opinion about this. First off i dont believe any language per say is really better than another simply more efficient at a function , so based on what you wat to do , you CAN choose a language to specialise in. BUT and here what ive learnt from many developers i consider...

    Opinion on coding camps

    Look i don't think they just "hand you code" but whats presented there is essentially being spoofed in a way ( perhaps not in 86") but education has changed.
