    @hubiruchi I literally stopped for a minute before writing reply to you. I was thinking whether you meant "in scratch (the toy thing)" or "from scratch". I went for the latter.

    @oudalally The policy in @mirimmad 's high school is, Open Source, Modern Minimal Designs, are bad, and using ASP to generate a simple website (could be static) is great, and should be the way it is done
