Internet for Beginners/Free non-java oil price widget.


Dear Ken,

IŽd like to introduce a non-java free widget on my WordPress blog. The widget needs to be about oil prices, and as I said: should be free, and non-java, since WordPress does not accept java. Anything to recommend?

Thank you,

Hi Leonardo - I don't know of any specific applications like that, but you should post your project at one of the "freelancer" websites to get a bid on creating it.  I've used and to have things like that created.  

Hope this helps - have a great day.

If you are new to the Internet you may be anxious to give it the gas; or terrified to take your foot from the brake! Either way, with over 20 years on what is now called the information highway, I can steer you in the right direction. Are you ready? Let's hit the road!


I have over 20 years of practical experience with web-related issues, and some military computer training. I've worked for a computer manufacturer, and own a small technology company specializing in web-design, hosting, and internet media production. I am the webmaster of several sites, and e-newsletter editor for Rotary District 6760 which is comprised of 65 clubs throughout middle Tennessee.

I'd like to say a diploma from a revered educational facility hangs on my wall, and perhaps someday it will. In reality, everything I know has been self-taught, much of it done so in the hallowed halls of that venerable institution called "The School of Hard Knocks".
